Christmas: I like it

Well, Christmas has come and gone once again. And even though my Dad still says it will be here again just like *snap of the fingers* that, I don't know that I agree with him anymore now than I did as a 10 year old. At any rate, it has come and gone and was one of my favorite recent Christmases. (I'm trying to remember Christmas of 2007 and...I'm blank.)

I don't really like listing and comparing Christmas usually makes me feel like I had some kind of inadequate Christmas and then I'm irritated with myself for feeling that my Christmas was inadequate when really it was (adequate, that is). But since I haven't blogged for a while and I did get a few things I'm particularly pleased with, I'm going to show y'all a few things I got for Christmas. Do not feel inadequate.

Jeeves! I am so very impressed that my Mom went to all the trouble of ordering this over the Internet. Have I mentioned this show before? It is so funny and British. (Why do they use the American flag image for the box? It's British!)

New Snow Patrol! I like them more all the time. (Though shame on them for putting in the F-word.) This one wasn't exactly a surprise since I personally put it into Santa's cart...and then put it into my own stocking. Ah well, it doesn't take any pleasure out of the listening.

The Office! Who doesn't love it? I only have Season 2 (which I maintain is the best), and much as I love it, I'm looking forward to watching this season again. A lot of the episodes I've only seen once or twice and that can really affect my Office trivia score on Facebook. So it's entertaining and useful!

Overall it was a great Christmas. Tasty foods, fun times, a sparkly Christmas tree and sleeping in. So even if one of you got plane tickets to Tokyo or a lifetime supply of McDonald's breakfast burritos, I will not feel inadequate! Oh, and did I mention my favorite present that came the day after Christmas? Let me illustrate:
Don't worry, we like each other (4 rillz). Oh wait, should I illustrate that too? Okay.


  1. Of course you know my favorite part of this blog. As for the American flags, I thought for sure that had to have something to do with one of the episodes... Does it not?

    It was fun to swap presents the day after Christmas. Always helps with the post-Christmas letdown that sometimes happens. Too bad the New Year's Baby doesn't visit your house.

  2. Hehehe... what are you doing smooching on camera?! I am glad you had a great Christmas. Mine was very good as well. Thanks for asking. ;D

  3. You didn't mention my gift of never letting you win Catan, oh wait, you won. Well, now you know what I'll be getting you next year.

    Nice pictures.

  4. D-Rew: Well, some of the episodes take place in America, but it's overall British. Maybe they're trying to be sneaky.

    Chizelsea: Smooching?? I can't imagine what you mean..we were just telling secrets.

    Tyler: Letting me win, hah! You so crazy.

  5. Hooray for Christmas times! Long distance relationships are the WORST, but it just makes seeing your man 100 times better when you finally do. (Even to this day, I am glad my beloved is no longer in Israel!) If I had money I would fly Drew back out there ever weekend, as I know the pain that it is to be away. But hooray for Christmas!

  6. BWAAA! JEEVES! How I love Jeeves and Wooster. I read 3 Jeeves books last year (well, listened to--they are GREAT recordings) and watched plentiful amounts of the show. Good times.

  7. Wow, I am DISGUSTINGLY behind in reading your blog. Would you rather I read your blog or post on my own? You can only have one!!!!
