Merry Christmas everyone!
Last night I opened presents with my family over the phone, which was really sweet. Then my new best friend in Austin (besides Gwen, of course) came over to watch Christmas movies with me and drink seasonal beverages. As soon as she wakes up, I’m opening my stocking and we’re making pumpkin pancakes. Then, M and I are going hiking (at least, that’s the plan, although...
Rambo can almost fly! He’s almost a real bird! Update: Forget almost! I just saw him get some lift for the first time ever! Only short distances so far, but I bet he’ll start experimenting more.

Winter kept us warm, covering Earth in forgetful snow, feeding A little life...– T.S. Eliot
I am the fun.
So, Ph.D. guy called me last Friday and asked if I wanted to go to a show with him. Unfortunately, I was at work, and had to work until 10:30 pm, and had to work at 8 am the next morning (I get to do that again this week on Saturday/Sunday, too. I am just loving the person who’s making the schedules). So I had to pass, and he was going to be busy on Saturday, but we made plans to...
