Okay, the biggest news of the day is that somehow the University of Washington Huskies beat the Washington State Cougars tonight in the Apple Cup. I wasn't able to watch it, unfortunately, since DirecTV doesn't let you have Fox Sports Northwest unless you pay an extra $12 a month, but I listened to bits of it on the radio and was secretly praying to the football gods that the Huskies could pull it off.

To make the day even better, Katie and I bought plane tickets for our Christmas trip to Arizona today, and we saved a ton of money. We'll be heading down on the 17th and we don't have to come back to Seattle until the 5th, so the holidays should definitely be great this year.

And speaking of great (and of the holidays), the two of us caught Will Ferrell's Elf tonight. If you haven't seen this movie yet, see it. I'm a huge Will Ferrell fan (you know you're a huge fan when merely seeing his name appear in the opening credits makes you giggle), so I was laughing harder at this movie than I can remember laughing at any movie in recent memory. Will has some great lines in the movie, like "this place reminds me of Santa's workshop, except that it smells like mushrooms and everyone here looks like they want to kill me." To top it off, the movie has a great storyline that even attempts to jerk a few tears toward the end.

And finally, this wouldn't be a true blog entry if I didn't have something geeky to mention before it was over. A List Apart has a great article online about retooling Slashdot with XHTML and CSS. I've been reading Slashdot fairly regularly now for about a year, and one of the things I've always disliked about it is how mid-90s its design is. I mean, come on, 90% of their site is using Times New Roman for God's sake! So this new article's approach was very welcome to me, and I can only hope that the folks who run Slashdot and Slashcode will take it seriously and someday soon decide to apply the ideals of web standards to their very intriguing and useful site.
