Todays fun:

Making the dog wear clothes. She wasn't too impressed at first, but the with the smallest distraction completely forgot she was wearing a t-shirt, shorts, and a belt. Silly girl!

I've made some major progress on my thesis - yes, I'm still writing that blasted thing. My motivation has been seriously lacking on it, but I've done pretty much all the writing for my first paper. Now I'm working on style, format, and flow. The second paper (its a two-paper thesis) has been mostly completed since Winter Quarter '06. I have just a little more to flesh out and its done. So, in January I'll be contacting the department head and getting that darn thesis submitted. Yippeeee!

We'll be heading to my parents' place in Nevada for Christmas. In anticipation, Chris did a trial run of making a prime rib for dinner tonight, a la Tyler Florence:,1977,FOOD_9936_35329,00.html. It was really tasty, but not quite what we wanted to Christmas dinner. Back to the drawing board.

I hope all our friends and family, and their friends and family, have a wonderful Holiday Season!

Rest In Peace

My sweet Tulie-cat.

Your time here was much too brief.

I hope you knew how much you were loved, and that you found happiness in the time we shared.
