In the past twenty four hours, I've had two video Skype conversations - one with Marie and B.J. and Lily, and one with my M & D. I can't even get over how cool it is that I got to SEE them while we talked. Skype is by far the coolest Internet tool around. It makes me really, really happy to know that this invention is going to help my family be closer than we could hope for, living thousands of miles apart and all. It's one of my Advent joys today.
