In honor of our seasonal holidays: Hannukah, Christmas, or -- my personal favorite, "Christmukah"! (He's Jewish, I'm Catholic.)

This isn't some super-premium version of Secret Santa. There are only two of us, we're starting a company, and he's senior. Revenues aren't at a point where cash bonuses (or even raises) can be granted, so this was a very welcome gift. The best part is that it came about after an off-handed comment I made about "wanting to work on my own bike." He even vetted it with his in-laws, who are avid triathletes (consistently high placers in their age group). It can go in the trunk of my (now repaired) Prelude, so that I can take it to events so as not annoy the humble managers of the dives in which I stay when I need to make some last-minute tweaks to my drivetrain.

I'm very happy and very grateful, for my ability, for my desire, and for the fact that other people important to me "get it".

Sniff...Happy Holidays!
