He'd Kill Everybody And Smoke Some Cigarettes

Sorry about the late update, but we had some friends over for dinner, and after a long week and tiring week, a nap turned into a full night's sleep. At least our steak and fries were enjoyed by all. :)

We'll have to save some of the news posting for later today because we are going to the museum to check out the King Tut exhibit. Better put on comfy shoes!

Last night was the premiere of the new Stargate Universe series, which we didn't catch because of the dinner party, but hopefully the DVR did its duty so we can check it out tonight. Really looking forward to the series. We love Stargate, so this better not disappoint.
