Real Talk

So, these days, because of this new internet thing, we all now have the power to make people say anything we want them to. For example:

So, I know Tommy has been doing a lot of bragging lately about how you need to get gold instead of experience from chests in heroes 3, how he got second place in the 1993 double dutch Cuban jump roping semifinals, and that he is the healthiest presidential candidate ever. Here is a real quote that Tommy actually said that should help clarify the situation:

An Exemplar Example of a Best Man's Wedding Toast

William, as the best man at my upcoming wedding, I thought you might be looking for an example of the kind of wedding toast I am looking for. This clip illustrates a wedding toast where everything is done perfectly, even a temperature of one's own choosing:

Christmas Plans

Right now our Christmas plans involve visiting my parents from the 19th to the 2nd or 3rd. Unfortunately, since we're planning on traveling with a kitty we can't really swing by chez Waalkes. However, as you may or may not know, we just got a car recently and I was planning on trying to come down for a visit for a long weekend some time in January. It will mainly depend on Veronica's work schedule. Certainly, if possible I think it would be nice to meet Liz before the wedding, but we'll have to see how the schedules work out. If Tommy is going back on the 8th, we may not be able to catch him before he's gone. If you have any weekends that won't work, let us know.

In other Christmas news, if you all aren't tired of them as gifts, Veronica and I will make you more ancient commanders. I can bring them with me when I come to visit in January. So, I'm officially taking requests on language/material and commanders. I've been learning Sumerian this semester, so we can add that to the list: Sumerian, Akkadian (Old Babylonian or Neo-Assyrian), Ugaritic, Hebrew, Aramaic, Middle Egyptian. Sumerian, Akkadian, and Ugaritic would be on clay per usual. I could do Aramaic, Hebrew, and Middle Egyptian on papyrus or potsherds. Let me know what you'd like.
