Yesterday Jerry picked up Thomas's brother at the airport, and upon having delivered him alive and in possession of all his limbs that evening, we were rewarded with a very lovely dinner. Roasted brussels sprouts, linguine with scallops and bacon, and, oh yes: king crab legs with melted butter. Om. NOM.

Scissors, it turns out, are way better than nutcrackers for eating crab.

It has been a pretty low-key Christmas Eve for us. We picked up a money order from Jerry's mom and spent it at the local games store in Broomfield. We got Space Fluxx and Chrononauts, and they're both good fun for two players.

Anyway, Merry Christmas to everyone reading this tomorrow! (There's just no way to get the tenses to sound right in that sentence.)
