Jack Bauer Interrogates Santa Claus

Thanks Shamus for the video.

I enjoyed this so I thought I'd share with you all, because sharing is good and helps keep me from beign placed squarely on that Naughty List I have worked so hard to avoid.

Merry Christmas From Us, 2009

Consider this your digital Christmas Card from us, because that is exactly what it is.

Merry Christmas!

I Love The Muppets. That Is All.

Merry Christmas, everyone!
"Ringing of the Bells"

This one is a bonus. It has nothing to do with Christmas. So sue me.
In all honesty, this video makes me so happy I want to cry.

Here is the real video for "Bohemian Rhapsody" in case anyone was wondering how closely the Muppet version parodied it (and yes, Freddie Mercury does indeed look like the lovechild of Cleopatra and a wolf in this video).

Some Pictures Of Us

I never post any pictures of us on this thing. That is mostly because I blog while I am bored at work and I don't have our pictures loaded up there. Well, tonight is your lucky night, America and some parts of Australia. Tonight I remembered to get on here and load some. So, without any further ado...
Taste this Cory action!

1. The picture on the left is of our two-year anniversary. Sierra is totally kissing me.
2. The middle picture is from our Anniversary Trip back East. This is at the memorial in Salem, MA, for my boy Giles Corey (just a little ancestor of mine, no biggie. Actually, this picture might be the one of his wife Martha. It is too stinking small for me to see for sure, but I got a pic next to them both cause I don't discriminate).
3. The picture on the right shows us working it on Times Square, which we were told is some sort of important gathering place in some small village just outside of Newark, New Jersey. I don't know. Everything over there just feels like a suburb of Newark to me.

These two last little nuggets are from the Santa Run last Christmas. Sierra ran it and I learned that even with a beard my lovely wife is still freaking hot. Look at all them Santas.

Save The Date

Well, thanks Jen Hunt (formerly of Spooner fame) for the link to this amazing Engagement Announcement video. To answer your question, Sierra and I did not announce our engagement like this. Had our love been as pure, as potent, as...primordial...as that couple, we certainly would have. Alas, theirs is a love that exists outside of the bonds--the chains--of reality. I hereby raise my glass in toast and honor of Dan and Jen... whoever and wherever you both may be. May your children be numerous and your foreheads grow as the mighty oak.

Google Wave

This is a test of Google Wave's embeddy thingie. Feel free to ignore or ask what on Earth Google Wave is (if you don't already know).
Testing begins... now (ow ow ow ow ow ow ow).

Fun Quotes

My sister posted a collection of quotes that she had come across over the past while and enjoyed on our family site. I thought I'd share them with you all here. Enjoy.

Babies are such a great way to start people

I coo, I poo, that's all I do

You’re not old, you’re chronologically gifted

Remember, as far as anyone knows, we are a normal family

You’re never too old to play dress up

I don’t think getting old is a big deal, really. But I guess you would know more about it than I do.

God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage

God said it, I believe it, and that settles it

God watches us at all times. Let’s try to be entertaining

Here’s to another year of bad habits

I drive way too fast to worry about my cholesterol

If we can’t laugh at ourselves, let’s make fun of someone else

If you can’t be a good example, be a dire warning

We’ve been through a lot together, and most of it was your fault

Who were you before you put yourself last?

I tried to contain myself, but I escaped

In story books marriage is a happy ending. In real life, it’s a happy beginning

If you want to hear God laugh, tell Him your plans

The best lessons aren’t in a book, they’re from my dad

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.--Jack Handey

Eagles may soar in the clouds, but weasels never get sucked into jet engines

Women are meant to be loved, not understood --Oscar Wilde
