Christmas Morning

December 25, 2008

This is typical.  It’s 9:00AM on Christmas morning at my Mom’s house, and I’m the only one awake.  I stayed in bed attempting sleep for as long as I could, but I’m ready for some presents.  I busied myself with showering, shaving and brusing my teeth with my Hannah Montana Rock Star Tooth Tunes brush. 

Yesterday I got a Celestron 114GT telescope.  I just can’t wait to get it home and break it out of the box.  Ashley says I’m not a real astronomer until I get it set up. 

Check out the puppies enjoying some Christmas Eve dinner at Ashley’s parents house:


I hear my Mom and Charlie jamming out to some Christmas songs downstairs, I’m going down!

Ashley and I are terribly impatient.  Last night at about 6:00PM, we impulsively decided to have Christmas 8 days early.  My goodness did I make out well!

Britney Spears – Circus


I made it though the album on my way in to work this morning.  Most of the songs are just OK.  I think about 3 or so songs are really good.  And there is one really awkward song entitled “My Baby” about…. her baby.

Moon in My Room

The Moon in My Room is awesome, you hang the moon on the wall and you can set it to light up in whatever phase you so choose.  It’s for ages 6 and up.

Harmony Universal Remote 550

We have 4 remotes that we constantly lose.  Thank goodness for over-the-top personal electronics.

Wide Angle Lens

I can be artistic now!

Wall-E Blu-Ray

I’m sure this is going to be the prettiest Blu-Ray ever

James Randi – Flim Flam

Teach me how to spread hate for all things pseudo scientific.

Skeptics Dictionary

Again, all about spreading the hate.


For my feet.

I’ve graduated from cleaning lenses with my t-shirt!

Evolution T-shirt


My good buddy Charles drew this diagram for me when he realized that we are all related.

It’s just candy.

More candy.

Hannah Montana Brush Tunes

Hannah Montana sings to me for 2 minutes as long as I’m brushing hard.

Monopoly Travel

Monopoly so simplified, you can play it in the car.

Daily Pill Organizer

So I don’t forget to take my anti-depressants.  I’m suffering from depression.

Car Air Freshener

It’s for the car.

Advil – Travel Size

It’s for my head.

Spore for Mac

When I get home from work, I am going to lock myself in my office and not come out until I have evolved.

And I’m sure I forgot to list something awesome.

I started reading The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett yesterday.  I just got through the prologue so far but I’m really enjoying it.  It’s like a 1000 pages so that proves that I’m a real reader now.

Henley Family Tree

Check out the Henley Family Christmas Tree.

mock_interiorMore then a religious bus riders will be displeased in the DC Metro area.  The AHA (American Humanists Association) is running the
“Why Believe In a God”
campaign during the holidays to inform people about the “Humanists” philosophy.  Humanist is a more positive sounding version of atheist.  They are both exactly the same thing, they believe in reason, evolving understand and all that good stuff.
