Greetings from the tundra/Merry Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas Eve, everyone.

It's going to be a good one here: We've already had a rocking weekend party at Kirsten's and the Wasu crew will be gathering on Christmas Day as well. Rochelle and I will be getting some barbecue tonight.

Fun facts of the day: my kids enjoy the hell out of the Home Alone movies.
The kids can't stop talking about Kevin and his antics, so they've been clamoring to see the movies again. It works for me. It's the last week of school and the students have worked hard all year. Plus, in the case of those who watched Home Alone 1, they got the added bonus of knowing that I've been the cities that they mention: Chicago, Milwaukee, and Kenosha. Hearing those names again triggered a flood of memories and associations of the USA. I almost said "home" there, but home is Wasu for now.

The other fun fact: Quentin Tarantino dropped out of middle school. He said it in an interview with the IHT. This fact has nothing to do with Korea, but I enjoy his films. It's also interesting how he did not enter high school and yet go on make an impact on films and filmmaking.
