Today I return to the doctor for the checkup about my teeth. I am feeling pretty good today – best improvement that I have felt yet. I actually feel like I can eat pretty much like normal today. Loopy and I are working on getting our finished Evil Petting Zoo stuff published and available from IUMA.com (Internet Underground Music Archive.) We have four completed songs and a remix that we are putting up there. All stuff that you can download from here but there are other formats available there. The site will hopefully be carrying us in about a week or so. They are slow because of the holidays.

I got a new winter coat for Christmas! For those of you who know me, this is a big deal. You can now, occasionally, see me actually wearing a coat. Although there is still no snow on the ground here. Quite a warm December for New York. I don’t know quite what to think of it. I hear that Buffalo got some snow a few days ago but there is no sign of it here or back home near Perry.

Since I have switched to eating vegetarian in September, I have lost about twenty pounds! Some of that has happened since the food poisoning and teeth removal a week ago but I will take it any way I can get it.

Dominica has been studying “Your Mom” humor from Nate and Loopy and is finally coming along. She is making some pretty funny jokes. Ask her, maybe she will give you a sample.

Only four more days until New Year’s Eve!

On Christmas Day, Nate, Bob, Loopy and my families all watched Thumb Wars completely seperate from each other. How funny is that. Dominica is taking a copy to her parents today so that they can watch it too. Nate and my families also both watched the Princess Diaries on Christmas too! The Diaries were ok. Nate really liked it but I was a little bit disappointed.

My parents got me a year’s supply of Wegman’s antacids for Christmas. It looks like I am going to be needing them this year:) There is so much work to be done.

10:00 am tomorrow I am taking the Microsoft SQL Server 7 Administration exam in Syracuse. This is a really big and hard exam. I am a little bit nervous. I don’t know if I am ready or not but I want to get this over and done with before the beginning of the new year. This exam will award me the MCSE+I, Microsoft’s highest honor. I have been working towards this one for a long time. I hope that I will be all done with it by this time tomorrow. It would be very nice to not have to worry about this test any longer.
