On this day in 1942, General Douglas MacArthur left the Philippines for Australia, vowing: "I shall return." Also, ten years ago today, North Korea withdrew from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in a harsh rebuff of Western demands to open suspected nuclear weapons development sites for inspection. And happy birthday to Rupert Murdoch, who turns 72 today.

Sunday afternoon was Bath Day, which (asides from doctor visits, one of which we get next Monday) is Zoe's least favorite day, apparently. I hope she hasn't inherited my hydrophobia (fear of water, not rabies.) Sunday night was Pasta Plus dinner with the whole family, as younger sister and her fiancee have now officially moved back from Phoenix. They do not regret their experiment, which is good, and he already has his old job lined up, which is better.

Monday held a nice expensive Costco trip (but I got both X-Men 1.5 and the Stargate director's cut.) After a couple movies (reviews to follow in another post) and some surprisingly non-stellar food from Beijing, we caught another excellent episode of Samurai Jack ('Three Tales.') I can't get enough of that show.

Oh, and we're considering clubbing this Thursday, since next Thursday is a concert. Anyone else gonna make it?
