My SETI equipment came in!!! Now I can finally start working on getting Zwert home! I guess I should explain how SETI works, huh? Well, SETI stands for the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence.

Basically, a group of people said "Hey, if we look for signals coming from outer space.Maybe we'll find signals coming from outer space!" I know it doesn't sound like much of a plan, but it's all we've got!

I just set up my antenna on the roof of the school, downloaded my SETI software, and I'm ready to start scanning the stars! Zwert seems pretty excited about the idea. He keeps wagging his.tail? Foot? I'm not sure what that is on Zwert, but he's wagging it happily!

Wish me luck!

New Year

First off, let me say a big "Thanks!" to Dana for her awesome gift! I've never even seen gloves like this before! So cool!

What a great New Year's Eve! I stayed up late with my family and totally pigged out on Chinese food. It's sort of a tradition around my house. There's no better way to start the New Year than overstuffed with crab rangoon and egg rolls.

Alright, now I need to get started on getting Zwert back to his home world. Looks like another year of adventure!
