Belated Xmas

for a baby to come tippin' those Toledos at 7 pounds 8 ounces thinkin' he's gonna redeem it, why, he oughta have his head examined....

My Christmas present to myself was small, and it arrived today, 18 days late. Exciting nonetheless. Little dabs of Pynchonalia, captured in nickle-sized buttons. Two early photographs of the reclusive author, two book covers, and, of course, the Trystero.

The brown paper package was postmarked 23/12/2008, Correo Argentino. The mailer -- could it have been Squalidozzi, repatriated? -- had written out my address by hand, and apparently paid as much to post it overseas as I had to purchase the trinkets it contained, $8US. What a WASTE, yuk yuk!
