What a weekend! I had been hoping to get to Chicago for New Year's, but it was unclear I'd have anyone to stay with or even go out with until the late afternoon New Year's eve. I was unsuccessful in locating a friend to crash with, after asking a dozen people almost, so it was looking like I wouldn't do much.

Many of my friends are aware I'm slightly odd... obviously. For quite some time, I've liked $2 bills, but only within the past year or two did I realize I could withdraw tons of them from the bank. I'm also a big Where's George? fan, so a couple of times now I've withdrawn a hundred or more $2 bills and entered them all into Where's George for tracking. ... Anyway, while Googling, I of course got sidetracked trying to find how much the sheets of uncut bills cost, and I ran across the United States Mint's Circulating $1 Coin Direct Ship Program, where one can order boxes of $250 in gold dollar coins, pay with a credit card, and the government pays the shipping.

Yeah, I guess that wasn't a creative title. And I have to admit, I'm writing this Jan. 6. I finally got all the photos and videos online. Anyway, all my siblings except for my older brother Bob gathered at my dad's house Christmas eve, as we've done the past few years. My mom came as well. We ate celebratory foods (no shrimp this year) and did the presents thing. Below are the photos and below those, videos.

I had the pleasure of attending the Madison Civics Club luncheon Saturday to see the influential White House press correspondent Helen Thomas speak. Members of The Badger Herald and The Daily Cardinal were invited, and we got to meet Ms. Thomas at a small reception before the luncheon began. She took some questions there, and then gave a speech and took more questions after lunch.

I love going to Milwaukee every July 3 for the Independence Day display, and this year I brought a few friends. Typically I just go with my mom and family, but I got the best of both worlds today. Eric and Ryan had been planning to come with me, and I somewhat randomly asked Steven if he'd like to come, too, and he said "Sure." Yay!

I'm completely sunburned from "tit to tail," and my thighs hurt a lot, but I am so happy. Thursday, Steven, a newer friend, asked if I'd be interested in going to Mazomanie, Wis., about a half hour outside Madison. There on the Wisconsin River is Mazo Beach, Wisconsin's only public nude beach. I think I had heard of it, but I had no idea it was so close, and the thought of going intrigued me, so I agreed. It was a fabulous experience.

So I guess these photos mark the first time going to the club with Cody, a new friend with whom I've been spending too much time recently.
