Coincidentally, shortly after writing the post below, I went to the mailbox and found a package from Amazon; I knew immediately that it had to be a gift from Dave Weigel. He predicted a Kerry victory and I predicted a Bush victory, so we bet an Amazon wishlist item on the election results. Since I moved this month (to Owings Mills, Maryland, about 20 minutes away from my old pad), I asked him to delay the order until this week. (While we're on the subject of Amazon wishlists, here's mine. Now you don't need to ask what I want this year, Mom.)

Dave bought me Our Oldest Enemy : A History of America's Disastrous Relationship with France. The card: "Je ne regrette rien."

*French equivalent of "LOL."
