The chronicle of a lonely do-gooder family doctor who survived.

What did you get for Christmas?

Seattle got unexpected snow for Christmas. Me and Mrs. Sour Puss went for a walk and I slipped and fell dramatically right on my ass in slow motion. It was pretty hysterical.

I got to watch my 90 year old grandmother discover video iChat thanks to the MacBook I gave to my sister. Pure magic talking to her 3000 miles away, she was absolutely astounded that the video phone had finally been perfected.

I got to watch the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy thanks to the paging operator forgetting that I was on call. There were no serious problems that I missed and by the end of Return of the King I was crying like a fucking baby, just like I always do. My wife made fun of me, just like she always does.

I got new slippers, a Star Wars Lego kit (my mom has been doing this every year since I was 20), and the book Schulz and Peanuts.

OK....this is a little to like "today had milk and crackers for an afternoon snack. I hadn't had that in so many years that it really reminded me of my days being alone at home with just my mom and watching Sesame Street. That is when the world was so simple and new...gosh I miss those days". Blaaaach!

Hmm... it may be a little like that, except for the "got laid" part. But it is his blog and it is Xmas...

And you may want to double check this on Wikipedia or something, but I don't think that sex with one's spouse technically counts as "getting laid". But I'm happy for you all the same Dr SP!

Yeah, I am still getting comfortable with the whole blogging thing. I mean, I don't want it to be just a diary but I wanted to just get a few posts up before I publish anything that anyone will actually look at. Unfortunately, there's just not that much exciting that's happened to me in the last couple weeks. I am gonna blog the India trip next, so that should be a little more interesting.
