What to do during the most wonderful time of year? Drink. Your family will seem even more entertaining than usual. What ideas do you have? What are your favorites? I’m hanging with my mom and we are looking at making champagne drinks. Also she is buying Kevin toys because he’s worth it.
Happy CyberMonday. How you peoples doing? I’m back and reasonably awake after I’ve been in the sun and taken lots of vitamin D. I’ve been working since I’ve returned OR hanging out with Baby Kevin who missed me and is a snuggle bug. So let’s talk about the important thing, this week shopping, next week? Forks? Knives?…
Happy Christmas! No wait, that’s still coming. Happy Croatoan? All hail Cthulu? I won’t be celebrating Thanksgiving , but doffing the cap to “the day that self-depreciation forgot” have a go at these ten turkey-tastic teasers with all the trimmings. Pull up a drumstick and take it away ...

Quite possibly the best time-travel movie ever, Primer was made on a $7000 budget. This is great sci-fi distilled down to its purest form.

I’ve really enjoyed it—I listened to the Call of Chthulu and the Divine Comedy and just got done listening to their two-part series on HG Well’s Time…
Do you have trouble sleeping or just relaxing?
