 I just had a great Christmas dinner.  I made duck confit, latkes and glazed carrots while listening to Christmas songs from Sufjan Stevens, Barenaked Ladies and Stephen Colbert.    We're having divinity for dessert, I made it a few days ago.  

Later on tonight we'll be watching the Doctor Who Christmas special.   Right now I'm getting set to watch a classic movie You Can't Take it With You on Netflix streaming.   It's been a really nice Christmas day.

 For Do Nothing But Read day i'm alternating between a few books:

The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives, by Leonard Mlodinow
The Yiddish Policeman's Union, by Michael Chabon
The Wordy Shipmates by Sarah Vowell

I do have to do a few things other than read, I'm doing my laundry, paying some bills and making some Christmas candy and cookies (divinity, maple date bars and pecan squares).
