Happy New Year!

I'm here in L.A. and it's not quite midnight yet but it's past 1AM in Austin so Happy New Year!

[I was going to publish something for Christmas but I guess the Japanese in me wasn't so excited about it. In Japan New Year's celebration is the most important and considering that my parents are Japanese and my wife is Japanese, it means a lot more for me than either Christmas or Thanksgiving -- in fact this Thanksgiving we spent all day moving from old, sold house to our new address which is a rental.]
