This is the funniest thing I've seen in awhile...


Allison, can you explain what internet is?

It's incredible to think that as recent as 1994 our lives were not dictated by the internet. They didn't know what an @ sign was! Back then, the Super Nintendo was the apex of gaming, the Lion King (a drawn cartoon) was playing in theaters, and google didn't exist. Oh, the technological innocence of the 90's...


P.S. I know I've sucked at blogging lately. Even with my resolution to blog more. I'm trying to figure out what I want to do about this, because, while I like writing, I just don't have a lot to say anymore that I care to blog about. You may see a resurgence in photography wherein this becomes much more of a photo blog interspersed with bits of video I find interesting. I'm also seriously considering starting a tech blog. It's something that fascinates me and that I need to explore more. We'll see what happens!

The Holidays were Good and I Have Some Resolutions

So it's a new year and I've decided that for one of my resolutions, I'm going to begin writing regularly in my blog again. What? Don't give me that look. I know I've said the same thing in the past and that I inevitably get distracted and the blogging falls by the wayside, but this time I'm for REAL! It's a resolution, after all, and those are never broken. Right? :)

With that aside, I had an exceptional holiday season. I took a few days off work and had a 10 day break, which was much needed. I spent some quality time gaming with the guys, ate like a gluttonous king, and enjoyed laughing and partying with my family - which is, in all honesty, what makes the holiday season great. Family and friends turn a few days off into a memorable and joyous season. I'm incredibly grateful for my wonderful family and for my fantastic friends, all of whom do so much to inspire me.

Here are some of my favorite things about the holidays.

Impromptu family photos with only half of us wearing shoes. :)

Mom's Christmas villages. :)

The Christmas tree, fully lit.

Old ornaments. (Some from before world war II)

Giving gifts. :)

I hope you had a very merry Christmas and a great New Year celebration.
