The holidays are winding down

The holidays are winding down, and suddenly all your hustle and bustle (shopping, parties, family functions) will soon come to a grinding halt. How will you ever fill all your newfound free time? Well, you could fill 2 hours and 16 minutes by watching the newly released movie, Memoirs of a Geisha, which is cinematic brilliance. But why not extend your pleasure by reading the book, which contains levels of depth and nuance that the movie simply cannot touch? And despite the visual grandeur of the movie, the book captures the importance of kimono in Japanese culture even more vividly. Available from Amazon for $10.17 (or $7.99 for mass market paperback).

    So you got an iPod for Christmas.

    So you got an iPod for Christmas.
    Lucky you.
    But before you toss it in your handbag, where it will inevitably be knocked around with your cell phone, wallet, and eight lipsticks, you need to protect it from scratches and too much roughhousing (because you know all the other objects in your purse are going to pummel it with jealousy). The fulham jaine ipod case by kate spade is on sale for $60 (double lucky you). The flip cover will protect your delicate screen, and the leather will provide a snug home to keep your iPod safe from adversity. Of course, you’ll still be responsible for protecting it from the assault on musical talent known as Ashlee Simpson—but in this case, it might even be able to withstand it.
