Santa in stubbiesHappy Christmas!
In case you couldn’t tell, the Snook and I aren’t doing anything special this year. No travelling, no decorations, and no gift exchanging. (We did buy ourselves an air conditioner though, which has already been much appreciated.) Mostly we’re just enjoying having two weeks home together. I’ve been doing lots of crafting (I’m sure you’re surprised), and he’s been brewing and tinkering with his computer. It’s nice. We’ve also been indulging in our new mutual addiction to The Amazing Race. (We had three new episodes in 24 hours! God, I want to smack Flo.) Tomorrow is Lord of the Rings day, and we’ve already got our tickets for the first 9:30 a.m. show. I’m also hoping to get in some time at the beach this week, if the sky ever clears up. (It’s been warm but cloudy.) Oh! And rumor has it Kristen‘s arrived Down Under, so I’m hoping to meet up with her when she hits Sydney.

See? Lots to do. I’m a little sad about not having a traditional Christmas, but I think that’s just something I’m going to have to get used to while I’m here. I forced myself to get up at 3:30 last night and call home to catch everybody having dinner at my Mom’s. It was pretty cool to hear the crowd noise and be passed around to all my relatives on the phone, but it’s also nice to just step back from all that every once in a while, you know?

Oh, and unlike every other (lazy ass!) blogger in the known world, I will not be taking time off for the holidays. That is my gift to you, my friends. (Not that I’ll have much to discuss beyond craft projects and TV shows, but you never know…)

  1. You and me both, sister. I think we’re the only ones who are still blogging. Only, on WWBSD everything’s going directly to archive so it’s there, you just can’t see it on the main page. *sigh* i’m not down with holidays.

  2. Ahh, I wondered where you’d gone. 🙂

  3. No, I’m here. I’ll be here all night long probably. I’m not a bit sleepy. I guess that’s a throw back from when i was a child and would wait up all night so i could open my presents and THEN go to sleep. =)

  4. merry christmas 🙂

    i want to smack flo too *angry*

  5. Hey, you guys aren’t the only ones taking your blogging duties seriously in spite of the holidays. (Not that my posts today have been particularly consequential, but that’s par for the course.)

    By now you’ll be well into Boxing Day, so I hope you enjoyed The Two Towers.

  6. flo does deserve a good smack – vut i was just happy enough that john vito and jill came last only on a non-elimination round. they’re safe for a while longer hopefully!
    and teri, i hope you were drafting the divorce papers on the plane ride home…

  7. Somebody came to my site from Google today looking for pictures of Flo nude. *shudder* There are some sick people in this world. I prefer my pr0n without whine.

  8. john vito and jill are gone! i just don’t think i can go to work tomorrow, i am too upset 🙂

  9. I know! I just saw it. That sucked. The only redeeming factor of that episode was Ian outrunning Flo after she said she could take him in a footrace. I HATE FLO.
