Does anyone else find the adjectives Microsoft Outlook uses to sort your emails by size amusing?

Tiny - This can't even contain your long email signature, only an integer or two at most

Small - This is primarily used only for haiku or other short forms of poetry

Medium - Most boring emails fall into this category

Large - It is acceptable to have maybe 1 or 2 large emails a year

Very Large - A simple picture or animated frog gif will wind up here

Huge - You should be ashamed for having any emails in this category

Enormous - Terabytes of death will smite your inbox and crush all email servers within a 100 mile radius Godzilla-style

Best gift ever

Andrea and I have exchanged our gifts early this year so we could celebrate Christmas on our own before we travel to visit our families. Last night she gave me one of the best gifts ever:

This is one of the most efficient ways to make espresso/coffee I have ever seen. It is insane how good it is. I have had far worse espresso out of a machine. This basically renders them obsolete for only $30. I apologize for sounding like a salesman, but if you can't tell I have become fairly obsessed :) I am not the only one however as there is an annual world aeropress competition:

Anyway, thanks again to Andrea for an amazing gift!

Villancico De Navidad

I thought it would be nice to record something for the Holiday season, so here you go. "Villancico de Navidad" by Barrios. It is a Christmas Carol. Hope you enjoy!
