My evening, quickly.

Walked from OHSU South Waterfront to downtown (streetcars were very late and it was better to walk), detouring through downtown Macy's to see its Christmas room and then heading to Powell's City of Books. Found more Christmas presents. Saw two young women walk past Powell's windows dressed as angels. Looked at (but did not buy) a first edition hardcover of Stephen King's The Stand, which even slightly damaged costs $100. Walked farther through downtown. Had late dinner at The Virginia Cafe. Kept warm, or at least warm enough. Walked, bussed, then walked home.

I don't feel like writing an exciting entry at this time...
