PULL-STRING ORNAMENTS
(1990)

In the toy collecting community, there is a debate. Do you remove the item from its packaging or keep it unopened? Leaving it unharmed keeps the value high, but diminishes the enjoyment. Tearing it open diminishes the value, but increases the fun. Ah, what a predicament!

KIPPAH / YARMULKE

Today marks the start of the Hanukkah celebration. Let the menorah burn bright and celebrate the festival of lights. I'm not Jewish, but have always appreciated the rich traditions - ever since I attended a friend's bar mitzvah in the 8th grade. I remember being genuinely thrilled when the DJ played the Macarena. That was hip back in 1998.
