Christmas was a success overall. Despite the completely failed yo-yo experiment, gift-giving and -receiving was positive, fruitful and fun. General festivities and family time were high-spirited and hilarious. I laughed a lot, to the point of tears and almost spitting wine out of my nose, which hurt like hell. It was old home week (apparently), so I saw a lot of people I knew really well nine to ten years ago, but don’t know at all now. My family had never seen The Jerk, so we watched it together. I got to see Osiris for about 30 minutes on Christmas day, which is the longest period of time we’ve ever seen each other on Christmas day, I think.
There are no plans currently for welcoming 2010 (a busy year) and I have a much-needed and well-deserved week off work. I know I beg for visitors frequently, and this is no exception. I’m happy and full of cheer. We got the party box of Apples to Apples as a gift from lady Jesse. Let’s share.
