It was rather comforting to see that Dick Clark was still officiating the New York City New Years Eve, even if it had to be pre-recorded.
Just stayed home with mrs. mice. That was perfectly fine with me. I was just glad there was no terrorist acts, that I know of.

Sadly last night my wife beat me soundly in Tekken 4. Oh unholy day. I must restore my honor by becoming better at that game. I'm not competitive, really.
Next year Geo may be hanging out with his girlfriend's parents. So if there is to be a Christmas play I may have to do it. Last time I attempted that it wasn't especially good. Who knows, maybe it will be fun.
I didn't ask for anything but Santa got me some great presents. I really did not deserve anything but my wife must know that. I got Lord of the Rings paperbacks box set including the Hobbit, 2 Playstation games, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai Hindi DVD, a Manga comic, a second Playstation controller, and lots of treats in my stocking.
We got our Kris Kringles GR and LE many GI Joes and Godzilla dolls plus a Gimli and Galadriel doll. There was much discussion over Thanksgiving as to the poor nature of Kris Kringle gift giving, so we wanted to make sure that we were up to par. They seemed pleased, so I guess we did. The best part was we at first gave them just pez and a mix disc, pretending that's all there was. The pez because once many years ago GR got pez as Christmas presents. The mix disc as that was one of the things GR was complaining about that passes for a Christmas present.
All the kids chipped in to get my Dad a Tivo with Direct TV. It has yet to be installed, so more on that later. I got my mom a Department 56 Snowy Hills Hospital which she appeared to like. Its the fourth year in a row she has recieved Department 56 sculpture.
Hope your Christmas was just as good.
I'm working today. But it is not that bad and I should be outta here shortly. Can't wait to hang out with Mom and Dad and all my siblings and my godson who is totally cute in the worst way. Happy Christmas everybody. Stay sane and don't drive into anything or anyone.
Those are the lyrics to a children's Christmas album I must have had when I was 10 or so. Scary that I still know the lyrics. But, not too surprising, given the number of times I listened to it.
I got to play Kingdom Hearts last night. This time I used the Official Strategy Guide that I purchased. I confess I am a cheater. When I play video games I prefer to use any cheat, trick, tip or hint I can possibly find. I don't like being stuck. I don't like impossibly hard games. They have a name for that its called real life.
How do you get the baby to stop crying?
I don't know where to enter the cheat code!!!!
I wish could say equally nice things about the AMC Bay Street 16 The layout of this area was terrible. Whoever designed it did not have the slightest idea what they were doing. I had to make several U turns just to park and once I got to the parking garage it was not laid out in a spiral.
Once we left we saw that they had hired several parking traffic directors. Even then people were having troubles. Great Idea, poor execution. The theater itself was comparable with the AMC Mercado 20 so including ease of access the AMC 20 is still my favorite non-IMAX movie theater to see Hollywood movies in.
Also watched the Tigger movie on DVD and, its confirmed, I still like that movie. Its just too cute.
