The addiction kicks into high gear...

(Alternative title was: Will someone please tell Nicole that it is a Lasko family tradition to open Hanukkah presents on the morning of Hanukkah Eve?)

(Alternative title #2 was: Screw You Bill Gates.)

Nico gave me a cool Dell Mini for this the first night of Hanukkah. (Don't be too impressed with Nicole, I think it was free as part of a promotion with the far more expensive laptop she bought for herself.)

To make things interesting, the Mini comes standard with Ubuntu...my greatest accomplishment of the year was getting pokerstars to run on the thing with only about a half hour of effort. I'll be coming to a Starbucks near you soon.

It is NOT a Lasko family tradition to open presents on the morning of Hanukkah Eve. I am afraid Michael is a "Big Fat Liar" as Eyal would say. We open one little present each night of Hanukkah. Also, in Lasko tradition, the gifts are useful things, like clothes or towels, what a bummer.

Thank You! I assure you that all of Michael's other gifts are useful and not fancy. And Michael's computer wasn't free!

Speaking of... what size is Eyal?
