    That's actually a smart idea. There shouldn't be any crowds.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    The movies are actually pretty crowded on holidays because no one wants the responsibility of entertaining/dealing with their family for very long.

    There's some serious lip-locking that goes on in it. Just had to give you a head's up. Bare backs, semi bare-chests, etc.

    I've always found the norm to be old couples going to see whatever film caters most to their age group. For example, I expect most to be flocking to the theaters to go see It's Complicated.

    My boyfriend saw a sneak preview of It's Complicated with his mom...and he said the theater was filled with old couples/women, and that he must have been the only male under 35 there. That's for sure going to be the older-christmas-couples movie....and me, by myself :P

    I never said the theatre would be dead. I just said it gets more crowded by afternoon. But that would be true of every weekend anyway.

    The girls are home, and we went camping in the desert last weekend. As befits the season, 1litro decorated our sun shelter with solar-powered led icicle lights... and this is my somewhat legible attempt to write holiday greetings with a color-changing led light pen. So, to all of you, from The Atom Family:

    We've been going to the movies on Christmas for years. The theaters used to be pretty empty, but now it seems to be THE thing to do. This year (because my brother has a 3 month old and my parents just got a new big screen) we're gonna go with a DVD at home.

    Get in the holiday mood, and be eco friendly.
    You know, but that's valid because if we are all gonna die anyway shouldn't we be enjoying ourselves now? You know, I'd like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor insignificant preamble to something else.

    It looks like we're going to be doing brunch and a movie. Best part is that everyone will select some dumb shit movie. This means being by myself enjoying an entertaining and meaningful movie.

    I read about this last week. It's a great idea. Those trees would make Charlie Brown jealous.

    I think the Christmas tamale tradition is the best thing ever. I need to learn how to make them.

    My boyfriend and I went to Alabama last week to have an early xmas with his family. We had a big family dinner and I brought presents for everyone. His dad: tommy bahamas sweater, his mom: lucy sweater + gold &spinel necklace, his sis: shirt + opal earrings.

    We didn't want to have xmas day over there because we want our own usual xmas with my mom, and our dogs. The dogs get their own stockings and presents lol.

    Then we eat lots of oyster dressing, pumpkin pie, green beans... then rent lots of movies (but this year instant netflix!)

    I can't post what I got the bf on here since he reads the board, but I got too much as usual. I asked for a slr camera and a few little things. My mom is getting a daily planner, and some burts bees stuff.. she normally doesn't want anything so I never know what to get her. I got one of my friends (who has a 6month old girl)some new baby clothes from the disney store

    Also no tree this year, we just decorate the fireplace.

    Just a novelty ball point pen we got for the kids long ago. It's annoying to write with, and my husband is a light guy, so he removed the writing part, and attached a clear lucite ball to the end to transmit light better.

    I am guessing because of the season this happened. I dressed all up to be warm and go out and clear my sidewalks. When I got out there, they were already cleaned and the sun actually made them dry The only down side is I know it was done by my neighbor who is over 75. I only sort of feel bad because he does have a snow blower. Thank you neighbor. I am waiting to hear where our Army girl is. She drove up to Seattle last week and said she would be here by xmas eve. Darn weather. cr****

    I'm going to leave work in a few minutes to drive out of town for Xmas weekend. Merry Xmas everyone, have a great weekend! Hopefully I'll be having too much fun to bother posting here, or my phone won't be able to to go online or whatever.
