Christmas After Day

I celebrated the day after Christmas by doing something I'd not done for a very long time: I slept in for as long as I wanted. Very nice.

Aside from a shopping trip with my dad to buy discounted Christmas cards, wrapping paper, and ornaments, and an afternoon visit from some old family friends, it was a very relaxing day. Especially if your definition of "relaxing" encompasses spending three hours trying to transfer an Outlook Express inbox from one computer to another. It's a frustrating process, and so far nothing has worked. I'm about to try another approach, but I'm not optimistic. And to think that it would have been so simple if I'd only thought to bring a copy of Microsoft Office with me. What was I thinking?

On the plus side, I was able to successfully set up the printer, and import the address book from the old computer, so the evening wasn't a complete failure.

I was (apparently) the only person at this afternoon's screening of Catch Me If You Can who understood the significance of the name "Barry Allen," which the Leonardo DiCaprio character adopted as an alias at one point. At least, I was the only person who understood the significance and thought it was funny enough to laugh at.
