A few early graphics to help with the mood for those of us (unlike badgooDeb) without snow.

I just got an e-mail that Livescribe now has 64 bit capacity, so my evening will be full! They also have hand-writing recognition software available and allow printing of your own paper, which I am assuming will allow forms to be made. Yay!

I want a Smartpen, but the paper-requirement puts me off a little for what I'd like (though the "roll your own" sounds better), and I honestly can't think of anywhere I'd use it....but I still want one.

Cheers,

What I want is a quiet Christmas with the family and my wife's parents (they're both 86.) No drama, no screaming, just a nice day with good friendship among family. Maybe world peace would be easier.

Worldpeace = No problem. Quiet family christmas = No way, no how!

Christmas with the family ALWAYS tend to go ballistic in an hour or so. Thats why wifey and myself are incredibly happy that this year, all our kids and grand-kids are doing "other things"

Will just be the two of us at home for x-mas. Long walk with the doggies, have x-mas dinner when we are hungry, not because it's supposed to be served at a certain time. I get to decide what we will be watching on TV etc etc.

Ahhh, this will be a good x-mas eve!

...
Last year we had Christmas here, with about 14 family members staying here (from my nephew, Noah, at about 3.5yo all the way to Nan at 92yo). It was fine for the most part (for a given value of the word "fine"), though my need for my own space had me glad to see the backs of them all.

This year we're staying home again, but as far as we know no-one is coming to stay. I'm pretty happy with that (even putting aside the current tension within the family).

Cheers,
Marc

I do not have a long list of Xmas expectations.

Whirled peas and common decency for the new year.

I am not holding my breathe or anything.

But if the end times come, tell 'em I gave at the office.

Well, the world won't end until 2012 or possibly next Tuesday if we can get the debate going between Marc, pshrynk, Taylor and Bomb #20 that is.

Possibly last Tuesday (perhaps relativistic affects have not yet made the end apparent)?

I try to have a relativistic affect. It helps when dealing with my patients.
