HAPPY 2008 EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!
I really can’t believe it’s 2008. Really. It’s crazy. But I won’t go on and on.
I’m compiling my best/worst 2007 list, but for now I’m just going to recap Xmas, because I’m getting so behind. Did everyone have a great holiday season?
My family and I had a wonderful time. It was my first Christmas with my husband (as opposed to the past few years when he was just my boyfriend—soooo different, haha). The whole day just pretty much ROCKED!! We brought the cats over to my sisters, and I think they had a really fun time, although they are REALLY good at being mischievous and knocking stuff over, which my sister didn’t really appreciate–sorry Ind!
Christmas highlights: I got those square hoop Kenneth Jay Lane earrings. Awesome. And they look fantastic, if I do say so myself.
Keeping in the vein of glittery sparkleness, my sister got me the most incredible placemats from Vivre that you’ve ever seen. When I took them out of the package I just stared at them for about 10 minutes. I think they’ll be really good for dieting—food becomes 2nd banana when resting atop this glittery extravaganza. I can’t wait to have a dinner party!
Thanks to my mom, we ate fantastic food all day long, and played tons of games. If you’re looking for a new game to keep you and your friends highly entertained, try QUELF. We played at Thanksgiving, so it’s quite possible I’ve already mentioned this quirky game of charades, Q&A, dares, and all around weirdness.
Someone gave us the most fantastic chocolates from Jacques Torres—he makes tons of fancy fillings that melt in your mouth. I ate way too many, and I’m paying for it now.
We saw JUNO over Xmas, which I very highly recommend. It was completely hilarious, well written, clever, not too sappy, with lovable characters, and a great soundtrack. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I’m a sucker for quirky dialog and offbeat characters. I’d love to write a movie like that one day. And Michael Sera is in it (the kid from Arrested Development and Superbad) and I think he is awesome. I want him to be my best friend. Is that so much to ask?
Gotta go. But, one last horrifying note before I say buh-bye. Andy and I went to Rite Aid the day after Christmas: All the xmas decorations were gone and the store was filled with heart shaped boxes, fake roses, and other Valentines Day paraphernalia. Valentines Day in December? I mean, seriously. SERIOUSLY! I couldn’t believe it.
