"Beat you. Like a catfish." - My mother. I have no idea.

We still have Tish's spiked collar. She wore it over here a couple of times, each time taking it off somewhere in our house and leaving it behind. The picture of my mother wearing it is infamous (and, when put on one of Nicole's Spanish posters, made her known as TEH COOLEST MOMXX0R EVAR). Eventually, she will get it back. Someday. I'll resort to courier pigeons if I have to.

Tish tells me Michael is in town. Fittingly enough, I'm probably leaving town tomorrow. The universe doesn't like us actually being anywhere near one another, y'see. At this point, I haven't seen him in almost a year. Joy!

Mom is sickhas the flu, which is no good (as Gabriel and Emma are VERY noisy, and Nicole will probably have friends over for studying for the remainder of the week). She's got a sore throat and is generally just feeling crappy. I have the Worlds Most Manageable Cough, in that it doesn't interrupt most of the (admittedly, little) speaking I do, and only occasionally results in my having a sore throat or headache. We're waiting to see whether my illness mutates into mom's, or hers into mine.

We now have a christmas tree (yay), picked up in possibly the quickest tree-shopping expedition our family has ever had. Gabe, Emma and I wandered around the lot, picked out the tree in minutes, and shortly brought it home and lugged it inside. It's just a little taller than Gabriel, probably 6'5" at the tallest point, and full of pine needles we're going to be picking up/vaccuuming off the floor for months. A darn good tree. It won't get mauled with decorations this year, as there's simply (a) finally WAY too many ornaments to put on the poor shrub, and (b) not enough time to go entirely crazy. A few ornaments with sentimental value, and some lights, we'll probably put them on later tonight. I am pleased.

And for those of you living under a rock, or for whom I'm the only American on your friends list, or some such, or for me looking back years from now trying to figure out what happened today: Saddam Hussein was captured today. To quote Gabriel: "PWN3D"
