Yesterday was fun. We hosted Christmas dinner for about 15 people. I made mashed potatoes and used my newly purchased BACONSALT and it was awesome. We had ham and turkey and beef brisket and roast beef and mashed potatoes (with BACONSALT) and stuffing and green beans and cranberry sauce and Amy made a shitload of desserts (I made the fudge).
We didn’t do much gift exchanging this year, but I still got a few books I wanted (Dean Koontz’s newest, the last two Stephenie Meyers’s books in the vampire trilogy), some movies (Bourne Ultimatum, The Simpsons), and a video game (Super Mario Galaxy for the Wii). I got some random geeky things, a few gift certificates, eggnog- and gingerbread-flavored hot cocoa, and a new wallet, which was desperately needed, yet something I’d never go buy for myself.
I bought Amy some pajamas from Victoria’s Secret (flannel ones with puppies and kitties on them), a GPS unit, a heated blanket that only heats one side so that she can stay warm but I don’t have to sweat my balls off, and a digital picture frame/travel alarm clock for all of her business trips.
Jigsaw got a few new bones, a new toy, and a new outfit (thanks liquid!):
All in all, it was a hectic day, and I’m glad it’s over, but it was nice to see everyone, too.
Now, everybody back to fucking work!
