A Peaceful Day in Gotham City...

(NOTE: This was written on Friday, but posted a couple minutes past midnight on Saturday. All "today"'s refer to Friday)

Things went pretty well today, considering. All four of us went out this morning and braved Widowmaker Hill (tm) - also known as the little hill on our street is on about three doors down from us. First C. - all 6-almost-7-years-old of bluster and bravery. Then together with kid sister E., all bundled up and looking like the little brother on "A Christmas Story". Of course, finally it was mom and dad's turn down the Hill O' Death, but a couple of 360-degree spins and leaf bag impacts later, none of us were much the worse for wear.

On reflection, it actually was a very good day. Most of us got naps, we played Monopoly Jr., ordered Pizza Hut, watched Taboo on TNT and later played the board game we have here. It's phenomenally incredible what kind of vocabulary C. has. Sometimes he'll get whatever word we're looking for 10 times faster than we would have anticipated. I mentioned to my wife that in 2-3 years, the three of us will make an extraordinary Trivial Pursuit team.

Ended the day with C. falling asleep on the couch, E. dancing to the Wild Thornberries Movie CD I got the other day, and all is right with the world.

Oh, and those of you who caught Farscape tonight, all I can say is, "Merry Frelling Christmas".

And to all a good night.
