Well, Christmas wasn't that bad in the end, I guess.
We did gifts around noon or so. I got the following:
* enough bath crap to start my own store. I am serious when I say I got two large boxes of bath crap JUST FROM MOM OVERORDERING AT AVON. She didn't even know what some of it was, and neither did I. Bizarre.
So, mixed bag from "yay" to "huh?", I guess.
I got to sit around watching Love Actually for awhile, which was great. I wish I had gotten to starting all my new yarn projects that I wanted to start today, but oh well.
Did go see Marley and Me. The theater was pretty well full. It was okay. Well, I didn't cry at least. (Mom called Aunt Susie at the end of the night and they all went to it and cried. To be fair, they have an old dog too.)
Then we went over to the neighbors' house for dinner. I know I wrote some entry about the neighbor ages ago, but I can't recall what it was to link to it. But basically, the guy of the couple is a repo man/fighter type/owned a karate studio/used to be a bounty hunter, and listening to his stories is pretty much like watching Dog The Bounty Hunter. His longtime live-in girlfriend/babymomma is the one we mostly hang out with, she's real friendly and from Oklahoma. Drinking was involved, on my part and the ladies there that weren't Mom, anyway.
Conversational topics included:
Yes, much more entertaining than being asked why I don't have a man yet by the other side of the family, or being ignored. Heh.
So in the end, not bad.
Oh, I forgot one more present I got: tickets to Phantom of the Opera for the 26th! So that's what I'm doing today.
