    Yiran and I just returned home 8.5 hours after leaving for Boston this afternoon. It was a great time tonight and worth getting out there in the weather. Happy Holidays everyone!

    Well it looks like I'll have to miss the Christmas Party tonight, and with so many people going! Drat! Darn snow! Not worth risking a 40 mile drive though. Merry Christmas to everyone!
