Christmas, Family, geeky
Well the Christmas dinners have past. Christmas day was at my sister’s. The BiL made a turkey, my Mom brought cabbage rolls, pierogi and dessert. B. made an incredible stuffing and also brought dessert… You’d think there were 20 people coming! Dinner was great! I quickly fell into a food coma after dinner. Gah. Want to go for a walk? Uh, no… I’ll stay here on the couch. It was a pretty low key day at Horseshoe valley.
Yesterday we were at B.’s sisters with her Brother and the nephews. Their house looked like a Toys ‘R Us exploded in it, there were toys and parts and pieces everywhere. The boys enjoyed the presents we gave them, especially the model Hummer which eventually became the source of conflict. B. made a delicious Mexican dish for dinner. We decided to brave the Aurora Best Buy for a look at their Boxing day sale. I got some nice Altec Lansing speakers for my downstairs computer. I’ve been trying to find a way to get Internet upstairs where my 360 is now. Well… I decided to try the D-Link Powerline. It uses your electrical outlet wiring as a Ethernet network. I was skeptical, especially since we have aluminum wiring, but damn! it works… and it is fast. So anywhere in the house there there is an outlet, you can have a wired Internet connection. Awesome! B. was looking at headphones but couldn’t find a set she liked. She was also drooling over iPads which she played with all afternoon at her sister’s. It is a cool device… one day perhaps. In the evening we started watching Tron (since we want to see the new episode and B. hasn’t seen the original) but we got pretty tired and stopped the movie halfway.
Been pretty lazy so far today…
