01:11 AM by Eric: Happy Holidays Personal

Jenny and I put up our tree this last week, and finished putting the presents under it today. It's not much, but then neither of us really feels like going all out when we won't be here for Christmas itself. The fireplace really needs a mantel, though.

Happy holidays, everyone.

11:15 PM by Eric: Curiosity is driving me mad Personal

Okay, so Jen has been working on a weblog entry for about an hour and a half now, it has something to do with New York, and she won't tell me what! It's driving me crazy, crazy I tell you.

Ah, it's up. And I think it's very cool.

09:51 PM by Eric: Handy Man Personal

Tonight I feel like a handyman. I hung my new pot rack and fixed the bathroom outlets (though that latter was just a matter of finding the other GFCI outlet in the garage and pressing the Reset button...). Hanging the pot rack was a bit ticklish, because it's heavy, and there's really only one well-placed joist (by the way: studfinders are very useful). Hopefully it stays up there.

Yay me.

11:19 PM by Eric: My wife is mad at me Personal

Jen's mad because I never update this thing. So she should be good to go for another two weeks or so now, right? ;)

Anyway, Thanksgiving weekend was a riot. I know Jen didn't have as much fun, and I would obviously have preferred if she wasn't feeling bad, but it was still a heck of a lot of fun. And I know I will never look at trees in quite the same light. On the plus side, we did determine that Jen thinks UT is the best school anywhere, which is good to know. Let the flood of Longhorns-branded items commence.

Other tidbits: Unturkeys are pretty good (the gravy tastes completely different than it smells, which is a Good Thing™), the Two Towers extended edition rocks, so do Office Space and my new luggage, and I am still not a fan of early-morning flights. :)

All in all, a fun trip, and I'm definitely looking forward to Christmas break. I never would have expected it, but my family (including my family-by-marriage) is some of the best friends I ever hope to make. That would be the only downside to living in Austin, I suppose. Did I mention that it was 70° today? :)

And yes, dad, I don't think it's a bad thing at all that I've grown up a lot like you.
