    Very nice Christmas all around, even with a general lack of gifts. I made a ton of food for seven people (including myself) that turned out surprisingly well considering it was the first time I've ever made a holiday meal. Black forest ham, cinnamon baked butternut squash, candied sweet potatoes, garlic parmesan mashed potatoes, Yorkshire Pudding sans the beef drippings (biggest surprise, although the beef drippings were sorely missed), asparagus, broccoli, and a pre-made pecan pie. Good people, good food, actual snow, a considerable hangover, not too much stress, no major illnesses. A rousing success.

    My two most favorite gifts are a Bissell Cat hair hand held vacuum and a sushi making kit. I may never need to leave the house again.

    They're obviously just trying to spread their radical homosexual agenda to our youth.

    ...And the next thing you know, you'll be justifying spending over $80 on one knife, and will be internet ordering ingredients from Japan. I mean, that happened to a friend.

    PS my brother got an iPad and is "not sure [he] sees a real use for it." There is some whack gift giving in my family.

    My mom usually gives me money and my sister usually gives me a gift card (and I do the same for them) so I'm always safe opening their gifts. However, my one aunt is another story. If she gave me the above present, it wouldn't surprise me. She is concerned about the eternal well-being of my soul, though, so odds are just as likely that she'd get me Jesus of Nazareth sock slippers.

    When I talked to my family yesterday on the phone, my aunt said that my present was still in her car, and she'd mail it to me, so I have a few days reprieve.

    And yeah, I love the decorations as well, Ivy. My roommate and I didn't do much decorating outside a wreath on the front door, but next year, I think I'll at least decorate my cubicle at work.

    I've pretty much gotten used to having a dysfunctional Christmas every year, and this year I just wasn't feeling it at all... That is, until the wealthy 84 year old lady I've been helping all year ended up in the hospital and the realization that Pete's daughter would be spending her first Xmas without her mom.

    The lady I help care for is huge on Xmas. The parties, the decor, the shopping, etc. and she asked me to take the reins and decorate for her because she wouldn't be able to, but she would be at home for Xmas and I wanted it to be special...






    Witnessing an 84 year old become childlike and excited was my first Xmas gift. Knowing that I love lights and shiny things, she sent me home with afew lighted trees for our place to decorate with. (About 9 tomato plant holders wrapped in lights. Some worked, some didn't.) I ended up re-doing the lights and began working on my own Xmas spirit...





    That kept me busy enough to forget about any dysfunction, and I thought it would help ease Lindsay's first Xmas without mom and would introduce
    Pete's 2 year old grand-daughter to the spirit of Xmas. It did...


    And, by witnessing a father and daughter share something I never really had, and seeing the look in his eyes as his adorable grand-daughter proceeded to dis-assemble pretty much everything in this little condo, we decided to head to see the snow at the top of the tram to bring an ending to our Christmas.
    Now it's the day after, and although I had but not one thing to unwrap myself, seeing the look of joy on the faces of those dear to me, from 2 years-84 years old, was pretty much the best gift I've ever received...

    the super cool xmas cards I ordered at thanksgiving just arrived today. so now I am faced with handing them out late or let them go. on the one hand I hate giving cards out late. on the other hand they are mostly a "seasons greetings" card, with only a minor reference to xmas. hmm.

    Send them out late.

    I had a dysfunctional family Christmas, arrived at my grandmas with my mom, sister, sister's boyfriend, and his daughter to see my family had already ate and didn't wait for us to arrive. Minutes after arriving most of my relatives left, next year my mom said we are renting a cabin in Tahoe and celebrating xmas with my mom's best friends family, way better...

    Dysfunctional family Christmases are why I don't even bother going home anymore. Now I celebrate with mountains of Indian food, a tivo full of movies, and enough alcohol to drink myself into a stupor.

    So, it's okay that as I called my father's number Xmas morning, I crossed my fingers and actually hoped for the answering machine? Did the same damn thing with my brother...Wishes were granted and I'm good to go for another year, right?

    I got a nice christmas surprise today. I checked the mail and found a $100 gift card my mom had tried to ship to me back in October. She had messed up my address and instead put one that didn't exist. We figured it had been taken by a postal employee because it had never shown back up at their house, but today they were vindicated.

    The ones that make you feel the chill when doing a reverse whistle.
    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.
