Christmas eve with the family and friends

One of the few days that all of us get together, and anyone is welcome at my parent's house. I just left around 2 am, but the party is still going on. It was fun seeing a lot of people, most of whom I haven't seen since the last party. I wish Sarah had been here with me, though.

Maggi, Pierce, and E.J. showed up around 12:30, which was nice. They are a band that my family likes, and E.J. is the brother of a close family friend that happens to have performed the wedding for my brother and Julia last September. Our whole family voted for M, P, & EJ on WXPN's list of the top 50 albums of the year.

Christmas movies galore!

I bought some movies at Blockbuster yesterday, and also got five DVDs as gifts today! Yay!

Yesterday's purchases:
Boys Don't Cry
Romeo + Juliet
Ever After
Shadow of the Vampire
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Sleepy Hollow

Today's Gifts:
The Princess Bride
LA Story
Big Trouble in Little China
(those are my three favorite movies - thanks, Dad!)
Bruce Campbell vs Army of Darkness (the director's cut)


I didn't get up when my alarm went off around 11:30 am. I woke up around 12:15 and called my parents to tell them I would be missing lunch. Then I went back to bed.

Well, Kyle starting calling nonstop around 2:20, and I was forced to head over to the house for gift-giving before Sean and Julia had to leave. Afterwards, we watched Best in Show, and had a wonderful dinner. Now I am back home, wondering why I am not in bed yet.
