    Yeah, that’s gonna happen. He would have to pack up all the animals that his family left him to mind into the car and make the trip.

    Cole? Going to those lengths?

    Don’t be ridiculous.

    10-1 he stays home.

    Merry Christmas Eve!

    Don’t want to get up this early, but not sure I’ll get back to sleep. Still more present-wrapping and baking to be done.

    To coffee or not. That is the question.

    Just let the dogs out for a quick pit stop. Maybe now they’ll let me sleep till sunup.

    I would not bet on it happening until boxin day , maybe, if the weather stays reasonably good( no blizzards etc). Can not even imagine what living with snow must be like:)
    I will be spending tomorrow with my family, Wednesday with husbands lot. Looking forward to both.

    @Elizabelle: It’s definitely coffee time. Merry Christmas Eve.
    Google is celebrating the holidays by using the words Happy Holidays. What a bunch of heathens.

    Sure they will. Keep dreaming.
    Next, it’s playtime.
    I was reading that there might be a problem with the Nook app on Nexus 7. It was crashing on some users.

    The thing about a serious snow storm is that you cant go anywhere. It is like a wall. Walking in the deep snow is hard and driving, unless the roads are plowed, is not possible. It’s pretty for about 10 minutes and then it’s a pain.
    The worst is ice. An ice storm is dangerous and you really can’t walk on solid ice.
    Have a wonderful Christmas.

    @Maude: thanks for the info and the wishes. On my bucket list I have a desire to experience at least one white Christmas. Never seen snow(I am fifty). One day.

    Now that the Stillers are out (I say, out!) of the playoffs (cheaters never prosper. I’m talkin’ to you James Harrison!) anything is possible. Hell, he might just go there out of spite.

    Or, he might head to Charlotte to see if he can get his mojo back. Good times. Good times.

    Never seen snow? Poor baby!

    Google tells me they get snow in New South Wales. Maybe that will be possible in winter 2013?

    Everything you’ve ever heard about snow is true, both good and bad. Blizzards are dangerous because the high winds just take your body heat right away, no matter how many clothes you have on, but a nice snow shower can be fun. Just remember that when what is called in the US the wind chill factor gets down to -20F, frostbite sets in.

    D’oh! I’ll let you know what my experience is. Loading a bunch of apps today. And I need to get a case. Maybe a field trip to Micro Center later.
