Sauna'd, showered, shaved. Ready for a big night: playing New Super Mario Bros. Wii with @JessaWorks while the boy sleeps. May have a beer.

Recently realized that by 2003 I had visited 47 of the 50 states. Haven't made any further progress since. Hope to change that soon. 2010?

There are some really wild snow drifts in the yard & around the neighborhood. Roads haven't been plowed. Excited to explore in the daylight.

Re The Phantom Menace link: give it a shot. It's truly a great piece of work; hilarious, reasoned, & spot on. It'll have you hooked in 30s.
