KarateMonkey's grandparents live in one of the towns leveled by the recent tornadoes in Iowa. His dad called early this morning to let us know about the tornado, as well as that everyone was okay. We'd like to go out there and help with the clean up, but right now they're only letting in residents of the towns in. We were watching video of the clean up today, and KarateMonkey says he doesn't recognize anything - it's all destroyed. His grandparents' house is just gone. Completely. Thankfully they're okay.

Red Cross is accepting donations, of course. Please give if you can.


Sorry, KarateMonkey has been hogging the computer for the last few days, getting his Oblivion fix. It's a good game, but he gets more fixated on stuff like that than I tend to. Well, let's be honest - his addiction is more intense, mine is longer lasting. 

We saw Indiana Jones today. The theater was PACKED, so we had to sit in the very front row. That kinda sucked. The movie was - meh. Parts were really fun, but parts were really annoying to me. Between plot holes and some really gratuitous CGI, I spent a lot of time saying "Seriously???!!!!"
