Space Is Disease And Danger Wrapped In Darkness And Silence

Home Sweet Home!

It was a slightly bumpy flight, but we made it home in one piece. While traveling for the holidays is fun, it's even more fun to come back home to our comfy couch, bed, and cozy office.

We're not really big football fans, but on Christmas day, we did watch the Dallas Cowboys lose in the last minute by failing to convert the extra point. That would have tied the game, and who knows what could have happened in overtime?

I agree with governor of Pennsylvania, Ed Rendell when he stated that "we've become a nation of wusses," in response to the NFL league's decision to move the Eagles' home game against the Vikings from Sunday night to Tuesday evening due to the bad weather, but I already knew that a long time ago. Why else would you wear all that padding in a rugby game in the first place? ;)
