Took the kids to the Christmas Market at Queen Elizabeth Square on Saturday. It was nice, but busy. There was some fun entertainment - a great vaudeville act, and some pretty kickin' music by the Carnival Band. breklor has been bugging me for a while now to join, and I'm starting to think about it. They were really a hoot.

After that, breklor and I headed out to my work Christmas Party at the Fish House at Stanley park. It was nice - good dinner, and I like the people I work with, so I enjoyed it - but wow. It was that nouvelle cuisine and dude. I was hungry when I got home. The place we went last year was a buffet style and we had so much food left over it was amazing. I'd be totally down with going there again.

Sunday afternoon, mercury973 and itsjustgwen drove up from Washington to see me. Sadly, mackenziesmomma wasn't able to make it, but she signed my card. *grin* hipapheralkus and pa_fangirl came out as well. We went to Earls, which I think is my favourite classy place to go for dinner, and I had a really great time.

On a somewhat more politically active note that I usually take, I am following the Crookes VS Newton Internet Defamation case with some interest. It truly boggles my mind that this case has actually gotten up to the Supreme court. It frightens me to think that what Crookes is pushing for is a decisions that would take away my freedom of speech - that if I were to link to an article that says something Corporate!Giant feel is defamatory, C!G could turn around and sue not just the actual writer of the article, but me as a publisher!

Oh, internets! What the hell happened to the freedom of speech?

Don't forget the crayon scribbles from the best little SGA-fan-in-training ;)
