So did everyone have a good Christmas? Hmmmmm? ♥

I spent time with the extended family, which was good. But damn that felt like a long two days. My Christmas started with Midnight Mass (which ended at 2am omg), and then I didn't get much sleep before I had to be awake again so we could go to my cousin's Christmas party. Thankfully, I managed to nap in the car, but I still feel weird and tired. Bleh. The weather isn't helping either.

Now it's time to raid all those tins of fancy Christmas cookies we got as presents.

Coming back from Midnight Mass means it's officially Christmas!

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! ♥




... and apparently everyone's forgotten that I write fics, since I only wrote one response to the meme in my last post.

You know what I love about this time of the year?

Those big buckets tins with Christmas-y designs full of three kinds of popcorn. I love getting one for the season and methodically demolishing it through the month of December. It never lasts that long, but it's the thought that counts. I usually start with the cheese-flavored popcorn first, before moving on to the buttered popcorn, and finishing with the caramel. One of my best memories is the year I got two tins, which meant that they did last for the whole month.

The past few years, I haven't been getting them. I don't know why. Maybe it's because the size of the tins is getting somewhat smaller while the price it's going up. Maybe it's because now they seem to be putting the popcorn in plastic bags in the tins, which doesn't seem right to me. The popcorn should be freely rustling about, separated by the flimsy cardboard divider, because nothing is better than munching through cheese and suddenly picking up caramel, like a special surprise. Maybe I just forget, or I'm too busy. Lots of times I see them and tell myself I'll get one for myself, then forget to do it, because I've spent all my money on the presents I get for other people. I don't know.

But I still love them. And the memories of them. Happy memories are good.

... I also like chestnuts during the holidays, but that's a more recent thing. Chestnuts do not trump that tin of three kinds of popcorn.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I hope everyone had a rockin' New Year's Eve, and an enjoyable New Year's Day. ♥ I suppose this is where I do the holiday rundown thing, since I haven't done one yet. Been waiting for all my presents first. X3!

cut for babbliness )

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I hope everyone has happy holidays and an enjoyable weekend. ♥

There are some days when you just want to chuck a katana at a DON helicopter. That was me yesterday. I'm glad today is my day off and I am feeling very much less rage-y. I was able to sleep in (yay), had an apple turnover for breakfast (yay), and just had lunch (yay). Internet is being slow (boo), but after messing around a bit online, I'll get to organizing/wrapping some of the presents I bought for Christmas (yay).



Unfortunately, some of the gifts are oddly-shaped and don't have boxes. D: I'll do my best. And then, once dad gets home, I will consider putting the light-up reindeer and the big inflatable snowglobe in the front yard. We have lights and the tree up already, but the rain had put our other decorations on hold. But it's not raining now (yay).

I feel babbly.

It's been quiet on my end of the internets, but for good reason. I hope everyone had a happy Christmas~! ♥ And New Year's is here very soon. It's strange to have it in the middle of the week. @_@

Anyway, what I got for Christmas consists of:

-- a cold
-- my period
-- a summons for Jury Duty starting January 5th

x___X;;

Well, those were the bad things. Family has been popping by the house a lot so things have been busy (with me snotting everywhere and curled up in pain). Planning on going out for New Year's Eve with my cousin and her boyfriend, so hopefully I won't be sick (or crampy) by then.

As for real gifts, I had a small haul this year, but I didn't expect much anyway. Thank you to everyone who sent me cards! ♥ ♥ And especially thank you to the ones WHO SENT ME CANDY. I omnomed through the chocolates with a vengeance. Rawr.

Other gifts are as follows:

-- Harajuku Lovers perfume
-- a G-PAK game case for my DS and games
-- a warm scarf
-- giftcard to Target
-- box of cookies&cream chocolate clusters
-- Rune Factory 2
-- gingersnap cookies
-- Sora and Ri plushie ornament heads
-- a plush sperm (technically Ri's present)

No present from my parents, even though I got them each one. And an anniversary gift. >_>;; Not that I'm surprised.

Well, there's the update. I need to blow my nose again. >_O

My Amazon.com Wish List

Has some strange things on it, but eh. I just wish I wasn't stuck on the dial-up, because then I could surf around and add more things.

EDIT...

I do not expect anyone to actually buy me a Vespa. TY for bringing that to my attention, Pet.

RE-EDIT...

Pet called me to yell at me because the first thing she saw on my wishlist was a Vespa. THAT I REALLY DON'T EXPECT ANYONE TO BUY FOR ME.

EDIT THE THIRD...

I really mean it. Don't buy me a Vespa. There's things on my wishlist I'd like but don't really expect to receive. LIKE A VESPA.

x___X There's a very loud baby sitting at the next table omg. *goes to put louder music on WinAmp instead of instrumental stuff, and turn the volume up*

Anyway, I've been meaning to write a sorta of catch-all post regarding everything that's been happening lately, so here it is. Because I'm bored, but not bored enough to study more, and I should do this while I still remember it.

holidays, Trickster, and general RL things, etc. )

[livejournal.com profile] luscious_sarah? My friends [livejournal.com profile] aoi and [livejournal.com profile] chibi_faolan want to be your friends now, so that you will bake them delicious ginger snap cookies. They ate the ones I had left after munching through your Christmas package. Aoi also says that it is her BIRTHDAY EVERY MONTH, if you will send her cookies. :P ♥

Finally finished my Xmas shopping!

Unless I completely forgot someone!

I'm early this year, as sometimes I go out the day before Xmas to finish up shopping. XP

Tomorrow is laundry, wrapping presents and futzing with the giant inflatable snowglobe that goes in the front yard.
windandwater: (Bunny Says Rabu Rabu)
Christmas was good. ^^

I spent most of last night cooking, since the maternal unit had to work. I baked up two dozen big chocolate chip cookies to get the oven warm and ready, then put in the Cornish game hens to bake, then the potatoes, then the roast. We also had salad, and fresh oranges for the 'dessert'. And champagne. ♥ A pretty simple meal for after Midnight Mass, but since it was just the three of us, but it was delicious and I was stuffed.

See, at out house the 'tradition' is to go to Midnight Mass, then have a dinner after, then open presents. Sort of like Noche Buena. Then Christmas Day is for... well mostly sleeping in late since we stay up really late on Christmas Eve/Morning. Let me tell you, after practically not eating all day, then going through a long service, and then eating a big meal, you really feel like sleeping the whole next day. Doesn't help that my ovaries have acted up. >_>;; But the champagne made me forget my cramps! 8D!

Okay okay, enough of that, here's the real good stuff.

The Loot! )

I have to go to Midnight Mass later, so I'm putting this up now. ^^ ♥

*STABS OVARIES*

I HATE YOU I HATE YOU I HATE YOU

*flops over*

woke up early because of the damned things, but i'm tiiiiiiiiired and i have to cook dinner later and we're going to midnight mass. =___=;; I think i'm gonna take a nap for two hours or something, then have an insanely hot shower then i have to go with my dady to the grocery store because we still need some things >_>;;
windandwater: (Holiday Tentacles)
Thank you for the card and gift, [livejournal.com profile] zalia! ♥ Now I can translate what you crazy Brits are saying! Though, much sadness that 'trousers' was not actually an entry in the dictionary. XP
windandwater: (Holiday Tentacles)
I've got chocolate balls and a naughty card from Canada and brownies and fudge from a Moff. ♥ Thank you [livejournal.com profile] aurorn and [livejournal.com profile] moffit!

Also and hip-deep in presents and wrapping paper. Since, you know, I have to wrap presents for my parents, too. XP It's a good thing that I rather enjoy doing it, and get kinda Zen during the process. Well, as long as what's on TV is good. XD

Also, the light up deer are on the lawn and moving. Mom STILL wants to buy more lawn decorations. >_>;; It's like nesting, but in a lit-up and tacky way.
windandwater: (Holiday Tentacles)
Wow, they really aren't kidding about that longest night of the year stuff. @__@ I left the house at like... 3:45pm and I was driving into a (blinding) setting sun. But, I have FINISHED ALL MY CHRISTMAS SHOPPING EARLY! YAY! I say early because I have been known to go out on Christmas Eve for gifts. >_>;; *cough*

Now I need to... wrap all of this stuff. And, thankfully, I didn't go over my budget if you cut out all the food purchases I made while shopping! Yay for sales and bargain hunting! ♥

But now I am getting hungry again, so I must disappear for dinner. Then more lounging about LJ, kicking Gaia, and organizing the presents and wrapping.
windandwater: (Holiday Tentacles)
Mom came home with some holiday decorations since apparently the outside of the house isn't festive enough. She bought two wire&lights deer (the light up and their heads move up and down), and she bought one of the holiday inflatable things for the lawn. It's 6-feet tall, resembles a snowglobe, and inside is a spinning carousel with Santa and snowmen and a penguin riding reindeer. It's cute. And big.

Anyway, of course I had to be the one to set it up and screw stakes intot he ground and such, and I gave myself a nasty paper cut from the cardboard box. >_O;; But the heater is on, my laundry is running, and now I get to have a steaming hot shower to warm up after being in the cold setting that monstrosity up. My hands are numb!

After that will be trying to decide whether I can be arsed to cook or just... eat my way through that box of See's chocolates my mom got as a gift.

Mamma mia, it’s a game we play
Bye bye doesn’t mean forever
Mamma mia, here I go again
My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?
My my, just how much I’ve missed you
Yes, I’ve been brokenhearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why, why did I ever let you go
Mamma mia, now I really know
My my, I could never let you go

Okay. So. I'd like to state for the record that no one's Xmas cards are late. They're not. I consider the Christmas season to last until January 6th (12 days of Christmas yo), which is Epiphany, and I have to go to Mass again. So the cards are NOT late. Really. Truly. Yeah.

Uhh... but the people who asked for pr0ny cards might get them late have to wait a little longer because some of the pr0ny cards are kinda heavy, and I think they might need a second stamp? I never know what the weights are supposed to be.

ANYWAY!

I have a ton of things to do and presents to wrap, and wow, Christmas Eve is tomorrow. Sorta just crept up on me there. >_>;; *coughs slightly* But thank you to everyone who sent me a card already! ♥ I'll have to put up a full list of the people who are extra special-y good. ^_______^

Oh, and before I forget, [livejournal.com profile] iniq? You sent me a card, right? I haven't gotten it yet. Maybe it's because the postal service was distrustful of the sticky white substance on the envelope? They do that. Unless overseas cards just take a WAY long time.
windandwater: (Mistress Sera)
I never quite remember that I can shop for a DAMN long time when I feel like it. Or I need to. Both of which tend to occur around the holiday season. >_>;;

I was planning on doing alot today. I failed at most of that, but passed on the shopping. With bonus points for utilizing sales and 40% off discounts to great effect. I have practically all of my presents bought now! Even for my mom and dad (who are notoriously hard to shop for). Tomorrow is my parents' anniversary, too. I bought a really nice wooden photo display box thing, and I'm going to put some of my parents' photos in the little windows. :3

And they better damn well appreciate it. D:<

I also... uhhh... bought stuff for myself. But shhh, we don't need to talk about that. ^^;;
windandwater: (Obligatory Tentacle Xmas Icon)
Now that I've had my pie (with frosting!) and nothing is happening on CFUD, I can finally get down to writing a real (as opposed to fake) LJ post and catch-up on comments and responses and emails. =D

Hey, shopping is fun except when it's not! )
