As Christmas approaches, we are getting ready for our little trip to the in-laws. Flying in on a one-way ticket (as we are driving back up) is always fun, since it as good as guarantees you to be pulled aside for a strip search, hopefully without the stripping. I guess travelers with one-way tickets have raised suspicion since 9/11.

Last week, the Christmas cards started rolling in, and we hang them up, so the first thing that you see when you walk into the office is a wall full of cards. Always fun.

Not much else happening today.We played some more LEGO Batman and CrimeCraft, and then we watched some episodes of Dollhouse.
