Ten Things I Learned Over The Holidays
[and the source of my newfound knowledge]

1. The words "nobody" and "stinky" are really, really funny. [from Jonah]
2. "Snow" is, apparently, defined as a natural phenomenon occurring only when I am not present. [from leaving the steaming, sweltering swamp called Houston just before it got its first snow in decades]
3. The Covenant Carbine is a surprisingly effective general-use weapon; though not as effective at long range as the Beam Rifle, it is easy to use in mission-critical sniper situations and, more importantly, remains effective in a wide variety of circumstances. [from Halo 2]
4. The state of Louisiana is 842,503,204 miles wide, and Elmo starts to grate on the nerves after the first six or seven hours. [from the car trip]
5. Every single time you press "Start," you automatically lose at least two hours of your life. [from Halo 2]
6. No matter how much you look forward to an event like Christmas, it still passes at the rate of one minute per minute. [general realization]
7. I never appreciated Dick Clark until I saw Ryan Sechrest trying to host a New Year's Eve show. [from Fox TV]
8. Despite our efforts to tame it, the natural world still possesses an almost unthinkable capacity for snatching away the lives of humans -- each of whom suddenly seem much more fragile than before. [from Tsunami news coverage]
9. Constant, purposeful movement forward is a necessity if you don't want to be overtaken and killed. [from Halo 2]
10. Constant, purposeful movement forward is a necessity if you don't want to be overtaken and killed. [from the year 2004]
