Snowman Lesson: I just met History of the Snowman author Bob Eckstein at a library party. His business card says "Snowman Expert." Now I'm Googling snowmen. Look at this photo of snowmen at the Japan Snow Festival in Sapporo! So cute. I just learned that in Asia, they're typically built with two spheres, which I think I like better.
Maybe it's the abundance of snowmen and stuffed animals, but suddenly alarm clocks look anthropomorphic, too.
