anthology of interest

Don't get me wrong. I'm OK with the unnaturally warm weather. I don't miss walking to work with the cold wind making my freakin' bones hurt. It's just, you know, unnatural. I fear what it bodes for the near future.

Now that the holidays are over, we've moved Z. to her new schedule. Instead of getting her Sunday and Tuesday, we now get her Sunday and Monday. It's nice having the two days back to back, but it's a long stretch between weekends.

We're currently hosting a couple friends as houseguests, also. It's nice to be able to help out people that have helped us out in the past.

The last holiday is, in fact, Z.'s birthday next week. She turns five! So odd. We're throwing her a kid party next Sunday, and man, it's going to be way too many kids in our tiny apartment. Plus a lot of adults.

Tonight: a surprising concert.
Tomorrow: gaming. (Rezolution, specifically.)
Friday: good question.
Saturday: party.
Sunday: kid party.
Monday: family dinner.

Interesting (and positive) developments in Iran. Also, a good read on the brinkmanship in the Gulf.

Why voter-ID laws are pointless distractions, at best.
