Cash Money Y'all

I played Monopoly with my nephew yesterday and built some high-rise hotels on Baltic/Mediterranean/Oriental/Vermont and Connecticut. Because my nephew is 6 he got the family rate on my luxury suites - $6 - Kia paid full price.... I lost.
Alaska is wintery. The snow is not so deep but it is cold and beautiful. Christmas is in full swing which basically means we are consuming large quantities of cookies and candy. We (Kia) finished most of the holiday shopping before we left so we were in good shape when we got here to just hang out.
At lunch the other day Sara expressed her concern that on my return to the states the blogging epic that is my blog would cease. Fear not. I will continue to write inane garbage on a semi-regular basis. I took some pictures here and will upload them shortly.
All-in-all things are good. Kia and I are sore from battling at Wii boxing and we are headed out for one of the many Christmas households we will participate in this year shortly.
I hope this post finds everyone well and you are all enjoying a bountiful Kwanzaa.

That Alex even knows what is Monopoly is pretty good. On the other hand, it appears that the blog is the reason you don't answer your phone.

Uh - Dad, I have no messages on my phone.... Email me if you need the number. See you in a couple of days....
Kun - That song is tooooo local buddy. A little Borat mixed with some Hutong spirit. That's what I am talking about.
Merry Christmas everybody.

There isn't that much snow in Anchorage at this point really. Eat some kind of awesome Iowa concoction like ham stuffed with chocolate chips for me. I have been gorging myself on candy that my family seems obliged to leave sitting on counters wherever I walk and reindeer sausage, beautiful beautiful reindeer sausage.

Oh hey Allan, I couldn't get your hyperlink to work buddy. Post that again.

Ooops, that link doesn't work now. I found the same picture at some other place.

I didn't have ham stuffed with chocolate chips, but I did have my grandmother's (in)famous ham balls - basically like a meatball, only made with ham, and covered in some sort of syrupy-sweet sauce. I also porkchops, ham, prime rib, homemade pizza, sausage and fried potatoes, and a variety of other foods guaranteed to make me die young. Alas, I'm back in California now, so perhaps the vegetables here will save me.

Happy New Year!
