Three days in a row of sunshine! We paid for this with cold air and wind chills in the single digits positive F. I make note of this fact because this is a rare occurrence in Michigan in December, January & February. Cold air blowing over un-frozen large lake means clouds. As we are surrounded on all sides it doesn't matter which way the wind blows, we almost always have clouds and/or snow.

Went to see Arthur Christmas this afternoon. When I first saw the ads I figured gak! another Xmas movie. Then I discovered that it was from Aardman the makers of Wallace and Gromit and it became a whole other thing. The animation was good and the script was excellent. It is a totally different take on Santa and a lot of fun. Highly recommended.

I just finished with the Fall semester torture devices, otherwise known as Final Exams. Sent them off to be copied. Torture begins tomorrow. Grades due a week from tomorrow and then three weeks off. Joy!

Officially got the check from last weekend, I actually made money as long has you don't count my time.

The show went well on Saturday. I was wrong, I made expenses. I also bought a print of a friend's new oil painting. I cannot afford the original but the giclee prints are very affordable. I went home and collapsed. Luckily I didn't have to do anything else this weekend.

Today Cami and I went to the movies and saw The Muppets. The kids (at the show) liked it but I think the parents were more appreciative. We were at times the only ones laughing at the self-referential jokes. I was a big fan of The Muppet Show. Not quite up to classic Muppets but good none the less. I wanted something that required no thought and was amusing and this certainly fit the bill. The movie ends with this and unless you want Mahna Mahna playing in your head for hours don't click. Choice is good.

The semester count down clock is currently set at two weeks. One more week and then exam week and then two weeks off. Usually we have a longer break but this time we start back up on the 3rd.

All the snow melted, this weekend was in the 50s F. More snow coming later this week.
