If you haven't picked up Star Wars yet, you are missing out. As I type, I am watching Return of the Jedi for probably the millionth time. I never get tired of these movies. Love them.
Big, HUGE shout out to my sister, Marian. In her first semester of grad school, she pulled a 4.0. I mean, come on people she IS taking after her brother ya know. Seriously though, my sis showed a lot of heart this semester. Not only is she pursuing a degree where she will help people in the future, but she overcame a rough start to the semester. Just like any of us who question our desire and passion from time to time, she wasn't sure grad school was meant for her. I'm proud of her for overcoming these obstacles and jumping to the head of her class.
Anyone else notice how Major League Baseball is screwing up this entire Nationals organization in DC? They haven't even thrown a pitch, and it is already in limbo. I think DC would be a great place for a team. I mean come on, players using Balco in the same town as crooked politicians? I LOVE it. Seriously though, it is a shame if the city looses out on a baseball franchise simply because MLB doesn't want to forfeit some of their own profits off of the sale. Oh well, at least I ordered my Nationals t-shirt just in case they fold. For a collector's item, ya know?
Congratulations to Eric and Christina Nichols, on the birth of Grace Nichols this past Monday. All are doing well, and even though I give E-nic a hard time I think both will be wonderful parents. They show a remarkable love for each other you don't see in many couples today. I can see that easily translating into their love for Grace.
Another congratulation to Davis and Nicole Whitefield on the birth of William Davis last week. Yes, I am a bit behind on this one. Sorry old boss! Davis was my boss while I worked at Wake Forest, and he and Nicole have always been so nice to me when I return home. Again, all are doing well. Sadly enough, I won't get to meet William over the holidays. It better be soon though, got that DW?
Speaking of the holidays, I will be heading home a week from today. In between now and next Thursday, we have three men's basketball games. Ugh. Oh well. Hopefully the guys will make a little run here. We are struggling a bit, but there are some great athletes on this team, but I digress. I am very excited to be home, if just for a small bit. I'll spend a lot of time with the family but hopefully will also see GLee, Erich, Katie, Alison and the Adams Family (yes, I said that). There are so many people I'd love to see but will probably not be home. Oh well. Another time my friends!
With that, I am off to finish Jedi. Go kick ass Luke.
