The Eve of Christmas Eve

In exhibit A at the left you can see Olivia doing her best Zack de la Rocha impersonation and giving a 'power to the people' fist in the air, and you can also see Dizzle's enthusiasm as well.

In Exhibit B, Daisy and Olivia are having a contest to see who's longer. Daisy still wins. For now.


Elf? Sailor? Colorful Inmate? Regardless, a cute little peach.

On a random side note, since Cory does a great job of doing movie and game reviews I am going to just give a shout out to the few recents I have seen, and will highly recommend both of these to Cory and Chad as well. For my other readers, for example, mom, I would say not so much.

Movie #1: A Boy and His Dog- A 1975 film that developed a little cult following. I had heard of it, but never watched it until Netflix recommended it to me by my selections. At times a little sophmoric, but it's set in a post-apocalyptic world, and the ending is charming.

Movie #2: The City of God- 8.8 on IMDB, that is tough to beat. Other than subtitles, no qualms from me. Gangs, drugs, revenge, struggle between right and wrong in a different way. Gotta watch it.

Also, after years of Chad hinting at me to read Dune, I just finished it. It was my favorite sci-fi book I have ever read, edging out Ender's Game. I am hooked and want more of Paul Atreides and the Fremen people of Arrakis.
Once again, Merry Christmas, I hope you all have safe travels and good eats.
