Last night was the Microsoft Christmas Party (less concern of being PC in a Catholic country) which kept us up a little later than usual. After sleeping in we started the day feeling productive, having a light breakfast and making a list of things to do.
The problem of the day, however, ended up being physics. The pure mass of our couch proved to have entirely too much gravitational pull and we succumbed to the inevitable, curling up for a little TV and a light nap.
The day wasn’t, however, a complete waste. We did something we’ve always wanted to do… figure out what the heck this “cricket” thing is all about… roughly. I’ve studied the basic laws of cricket from the BBC web site and now think I could watch a little bit of the sport and kind of understand what’s happening. I’m still not sure, however, if I could sit still for the full six hours of a professional test.
