And now, via reprinted text messages, a glimpse into the private lives of a geek, his wife, and their son:
Anne: Michelle was late, so I'm going to be at work longer than I thought. See you guys sometime around 9.
Me: Somehow, someway, between Battlestar Galactica, NHL playoffs, and Rock Band, we will find the strength to survive until you make it home.
For the record, it was Battlestar Galactica. BSG pre-dates TiVo in our house, so we've been DVD viewers until this season. TiVo is storing season 4 for us while we devour -- and thoroughly enjoy -- season 3. Also for the record, Nolan and I survived just fine until Anne got home. So say we all.
