Merry Christmas

Hope you had a wonderful day and remembered what it's all about (not to get too preachy, but you know what I mean).

Meemoos: We are now the proud owners of GH 1 and 2 - I'm practicing and will be ready to rock on our next visit. The link on the title is in honor of this gift.

God bless us. Everyone.

Victory Tour, Part V

Question: What happens when it starts to rain on your last night at Disneyland?

Answer: You buy 14 freaking ponchos and enjoy the whole place to yourself.

Quick note: Little Ms. Eris got to meet several princesses today, most importantly, Princess Aurora (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty). She wanted to know where Prince Phillip was. I told her he was probably home with the kids while Aurora did all the important governing. She liked that idea.

Victory Tour, Part IV

After a day at Sea World and two days at Disneyland, we finally found something for Little Mr. Eris: LegoLand. (Yes, that is the Iwo Jima monument made out of Legos, part of the Lego version of Washington, D.C.)

Then, he wanted a picture at the beach. I insisted on one for me, the kiss was a surprise. (Yes, I realize who I look like. No need to comment.)

And lastly: something for the Numismatist and Athena. It's like they knew she was coming!

Victory Tour, Part III

Snow White is a dumb broad, I know. The chick is warned by a hunter that her evil stepmom is trying to kill her and told specifically by 7 dwarves NOT TO open the door or talk to anyone. So what does she do? She opens the door to an old crone, and then... THEN.... SHE EATS SOMETHING A STRANGER GAVE HER! Seriously, the worst role model ever for little girls.

Here's a picture of my daughter with Snow White (see the box on the right for why I wanted this picture).

The Victory Tour, Part I

Here's the first day - Sea World...

The Littlest Ms. Eris loved the Shamu show. Little Ms. Eris loved getting popcorn (you can't say she's not plain folk). Little Mr. Eris liked the penguins.

As for me, I loved not having to worry about school. And Mr. Eris loved knowing he has a fancy new job to come home to.

Break Time

It's 12:40. I've been at the library since 8:30. I have been typing since 9:00. For those of you who care, especially Athena, it's a literature review on research done on debate effects. It's break time (potty, post, Pepsi).

I've been kind of worried that my full-bodied loathing of this past semester is a sign that a coming back for a PhD was maybe a big mistake. But today has reminded me of how much I love researching and writing. I wish I could stay here all day and night, but I have to leave at 3 for my stupid theory class.

So I will drudge through the courses, looking longingly forward to the research process. Duchess, let's get working on your idea next week! We can do this by email at first while we are both gone, right?

And yes, I realize "nerd" is the word you are thinking right now. I don't care.
