The Danish Royal Family has a new portrait. Here’s a few nuggets for you. I don’t really give a shit about royal families. Maybe it’s because I wasn’t raised under a monarchy, but the appeal of it - is lost on me. But if all royal families could have portraits like the Danish royal family, I might be more inclined to want to know more. Like - why? Or maybe…but why? These are the questions I feel when staring at the Dutch void.
But more than any sweater, piece of chocolate, or any other type of materially thing I want to go to Paris. I’ve never been to Europe and in the four years Lee and I have been living like gypsies the time/money hasn’t been enough to justify a trip to Europe. So for Christmas what I really want - are airline miles. I’ve already got a list of Airbnb spots on my list and a litany of places to see/eat while I’m there.
Also this! I’ve been addicted to watching Minute Physics! It’s only a minute and makes Physics…well enjoyable. I don’t feel like I’ve suddenly majored in String Theory, but I definitely enjoy the additional trivia knowledge.
Have you ever made tea? I feel like it would be a really lovely gift for the holidays. And there’s appealing to the control freak in me about being able to carefully cultivate and select a specific brew.
