Day Fourtyeight: 30 November 2009

The last day of november! Of course, this meant that Tully and Alex and I went to WalMart to get the last of our Christmas decoration, which look sweet. The room is all set up, so I think we’ll be taking our picture for our Christmas card tomorrow or Wednesday. Also, today I got my mohawk, I think it looks sweet as well, although it isn’t very Christmasy.

His decision comes as questions continue to mount regarding what exactly happened in the wee hours of the morning last Friday, questions that most certainly would have been asked of him had he played.
