  1. And the Christmas season is upon us


    I'm going to skip my usual rant about the Christmas season and go straight to the part where I talk about all the fun material goods I acquired.

    Oodles and oodles of chocolate and candy, firstly, which is never a bad thing. Plus some movies, season 2.0 of Battlestar Galactica, some nail clippers, some desk calendars, and some games for Xbox 360.

    What was that? Xbox 360--surely Ben doesn't have an Xbox 360!


  2. Merry Christmas


    Merry Christmas. :D

    I had a pretty good Christmas, all things considered. Excellent turkey ... enough candy to hospitalize me ... good movies. I got Star Trek: Legacy and Sid Meier's Civilization IV.

    If you were thinking of buying Star Trek: Legacy, let me save you the time: don't. I am not overreacting. In the short time I played the game I found it to be utterly dissatisfactory. Firstly, there is no intro scene,…

    Not very materialistic, I hope, I won't list the Christmas presents I got, because it's the thought that counts. . . . But I did like them. Particularly Age of Empires III, and the DVDs Serenity and the Firefly series. Now I need to convince my dad to go for…

  5. Trimming a tree


    We got our Christmas tree today (a real one, not artificial). So we spent time trimming it. I toyed with the idea of not doing my English homework. "Ms. Burton, I did not do my homework because I was trimming our tree." If she said that was unacceptable, I could claim she was discriminating against my religion. :shifty:

    Here's a picture of the tree taken with my hugely crazily bad-quality webcam. I'm planning on rectifying…

  6. Merry Christmas!


    Merry Christmas to anyone insane enough to visit my site.

    Merry Christmas to Elaine, Tovan, and Mak. You know who you are. Stargate SG-1 marathon in 18 hours, Tovan! Twenty-two hours of SG-1 Season Six! Muwahahahaha
