If you celebrate Christmas, I hope it was a good one!  I spent mine in South Dakota with my family, eating IHOP.  That sounds totally depressing when I type it out, but let’s not underestimate how much I like their ‘loaded baked potato’ soup!

Fascinating!  Did you know that Robert Downey Jr is 5’7″ and Emilio Estevez is 5’4″?

Hope you had a great weekend!
