post-xmas update

All is well here. My laptop is in the boot of my MINI waiting until I take it to the Apple store for repairs after work. I hope they don't give me any crap about it. Because that would suck. I want them to say "A ha! We know exactly what you speak of. No worries, we'll have it fixed and ready for you by Friday" - not "um, logic board extended warranty? we have no idea what you're talking about... you'll have to buy the AppleCare warranty, and then maybe we'll get around to looking at it sometime next month."

Christmas was okay. It was certainly a lot less fun this year with Matt not around. Barring a Christmas-day viewing of Finding Neverland (tell me WHY did they need to cast the most heartbreakingly-cute little kid to play "Peter" and then have his eyes well up with tears for the last fifteen minutes of the film... WHYY!?!), things were pretty glum around the old house. A lot of napping was done.

I didn't realize the tragedy of the Indian Sea earthquake & tsunami until I arrived at work this morning and browsed the net some. It's just horrible what happened. I hope our government finds it in its heart to do better that $4 million in relief funds... over 23,000 people have been confirmed dead so far. I can't even imagine the horror to be one of the affected. The AP photos were just heartbreaking, on every level.
