Ahh, the holiday season, with its wholesome traditional joys. Such as...

-Catching snowflakes on your tongue until your tongue stud starts to freeze
-Decorating pornographic Xmas cookies with your mom
-Debating whether or not eggnog could conceivably be made using any of your father's expensive tequilas
-Finding a present under the tree which has lost its name tag, opening it to find Fables Vol 6, and having to fight your Dad, brother, and boyfriend for ownership.
-The Grinch Who Stole Christmas drinking game

Himself's sister and her husband came to visit us this weekend, and much fun was had by all. Highlights include:

-Participated in the "interactive experience" at the Spy Museum, during which we all acquired spy names. Himself is Coffee Mug, his sister is Knife, her husband is Cane, and I am Foosball.
-Sloth bears at the National Zoo. They're large. They're sloth bears. Fear them.
-Indiana Jones 4 is 2.5 hours of shark-jumping entertainment.
-The Brewers beat the Nationals on Memorial Day, proving that Milwaukee is a city of freedom-hating Communists.

Also, everywhere in DC has great food. You should visit.

It amazes me how often XKCD puts out comics about me and Himself, despite never having met us.

I got the game Rocket Slime for my DS and it's totally addictive. Horrible puns, hundreds of sentient slimes, and giant tank battles...what's not to love?

California lifts gay marriage ban.

I know it's not the end of the matter, and it will still be a while before gay citizens in California are afforded equal rights, but every little step helps. So yay!
