Christmas

Well, Merry Christmas Everyone!!



Everyone here is all off at church, I'm here on my own. I'm supposed to put the turkey in the oven at 11:30, and peel potatoes while they're gone. We did my fabulous French Toast for breakfast, and it was very yummy, but my mom didn't cook it while everyone else was getting dressed, so we couldn't open gifts before church. We'll have to do that later. Stephan got to open one of his presents just after we finished eating and he seemed to like it. It was one of those Lego Bionicle things. He's 10 and likes to build things so my mom and I were basically clueless as to what to get him. But he seemed to like it a lot. It's funny because I already know what a lot of my gifts are. I had to wrap a couple of them. I don't like that: knowing what I'm getting before I'm allowed to have it. It takes all the fun out of things. It's one thing to try and guess, but it's another thing to know and to see it and then to actually have to wrap it yourself and put it under the tree! I feel really bad for my mom because she grew up doing that. She was the oldest of 5 kids and had to wrap everyone's gifts including her own. I wouldn't want to put someone through that.



At any rate, I was playing Uroulette while I was waiting to be able to put things in the oven and whatnot, and I found probably the most beautiful dedication to the AIDS virus that I've ever seen. It's called Looking for the Light and it's all photography and stories of people over the course of 10 years. It's really beautiful and well done. I had tears in my eyes....



Question of the Day: What are you doing today for Christmas, Hannukah, or whatever other holiday you're celebrating? (Ramadam, Kwanza, Winter Solstice...)
