Drove out to Manchester today, stayed for 20 minutes or so before we had to turn back around. But we left Christmas letters with the family up there. Will eventually get Christmas Cards mailed. If you would like to receive one, post your address here:
Do you want a Christmas Card?
What's your address so I can send you one?
Also opened presents. Last night, as we're a bunch of losers who couldn't stand the suspense any more. Was wonderful:
Necklace and earrings with roses on them, a bookshelf copy of the Ultimate Hitch-hiker's Guide, a fluffy purple robe, Grand Theft Auto:Vice City (I love my husband!), a new skirt from Nirvana, and another tiny remote-controlled car. Now I have two, so they can have races. This one's a tiny grey Audi, and its headlights and taillights really work, but I don't know if I like the controller as much as I liked the one Zia got me.
My birthday is in two days. Tomorrow we're going to go down to Angel's parents' and have Christmas down there. Perhaps I will come up with something to do for the 3-hour drive that does not involve coming up with things I should have seen about getting done much earlier, and whining.
Spent some time watching santa on the NORAD site, which I'd never seen before. How have I missed such things? Made pasta with chicken and peas and garlic-herb sauce for dinner, which was good but oddly non-Christmasy. I assume that we will find Christmas food at Angel's, and at my mom's.
And now I think I'm going to go engage in a little Christmas cuddling. Good night, O Best Beloved.
Oh, and P.S. amasashi is Teh Sexx. Go look. :)
