Happy New Year!

A day late is better than never, as they say. I'm here in Colorado at Tiff's Dad's house in Colorado Springs. We spent New Year's Eve watching the most amazing light show you've ever seen in your entire life. They had this ball lit up at the top of the Antlers Hilton, and then at the stroke of midnight (minus five seconds), then began slowly lowering the ball. Eventually, about 20 seconds after midnight, the ball reached the dumpster they lying on the ground to "catch" it. Except that the ball never got lowered all the way, so we could still see the top part of it above the dumpster. Amazing, simply amazing display of technological prowess.

In any case, it was nice just to be hanging out with a bunch of people around to celebrate New Years. It was especially nice to spend it with Tiffany.

Kudos to Cal for coming back from a 21 point deficit against Air Force two days ago. It looked like the bad Cal team showed up for the first quarter, then all of a sudden the good team showed up, the one that had disappeared since the end of the Oregon game. Too bad that team missed the Big Game. Grrrr.

I did some ice skating yesterday, which we got on videotape and I may or may not be able to post online at some point. The files are kinda big...

Ok, that's all for now. Maybe next post I'll be in Salt Lake City!
