Merry Christmas!Tonight was part 1 in the week of Christmas get togethers. We went over to my parents' and ate food and had presents and all was well. Tomorrow we get to do it again except with different aunts and uncles. Then we get to do it with Ben's family for three days in a row. Grandma, then Dad, then Mutti. After that I think Benno has FETE although the details were still a little fuzzy last I checked. Shortly after that it's new years. Finally there'll be a tremendous letdown from all this excitement (and food.)I love mashed potatoes. I cannot think of any more comforting food. Therefore I love the holidays because I have many opportunities for MP consumption without any effort on my part.In acknowledgement of the second snowfall of the year let me say: "Yuck. Take it back. We really have no need for winter this year." If I don't end up doing grad school somewhere warm I'm definately doing my post-doc in Arizona. Brrrrrrr.
