Well, yesterday I didn't really do a whole lot. It being Veteran's Day, I watched parts of several war movies- The Guns of Navarone (which is entirely fictional, as it turns out- somehow I always thought that at least the part about the existence of the guns was real, but apparently it's not. Once again, I stand corrected by The Admiral), The Bridge on the River Kwai, and Saving Private Ryan. Saving Private Ryan is a really depressing movie. I mean, it makes you have a lot of respect for WWII veterans, which I guess was Spielberg's point, but it's a tough movie to watch.
I also had dinner over at Steans Manor last night. Good fajitas, Jamie!

What else? Watched some news coverage of Obama and his family as they visited with George W. and Laura Bush at the White House. It's kind of amazing to see those guys cozying up after Obama pretty much ran for office on a "I'm the opposite of George Bush" platform for the last couple of years (while the Republicans painted him as a crazy, wild-eyed socialist terrorist). It's good that we live in a country where opposing sides can fight things out so forcefully during campaigns, but then come together peacefully once the dust has cleared. I hope some productive stuff came out of those meetings.
For some reason I'm feeling sort of run down, despite having been off work for the last 4 days. Maybe it's due to allergies or something. Maybe I need some more vitamin C (although I did have a glass of OJ this morning). Anyway, I'm signing off. Hope you guys are doing alright!
