listening to: jill sobule, i kissed a girl

snow update: it's like.. the thick fluffy, glittery kind! ooooh... aaaah.

anywho. family christmas party. i always remember these as being worse than they actually are. i mean, they tend to have a lot of awkward pauses. but the stuff in between tends to be pretty entertaining. like. my uncle scott.. is insanely funny. and i don't even know why. like. yeah. his answering machine message right now.. it's some guy with a crazy redneck accent, and he's saying like... "this is a terrible time to call! my wife, she's busy with social functions and keeping up appearances and all.. and this is just an awful time! it would have been better if you would have never called at all! leave a message, and maybe i'll get back to you, and maybe i won't..." ... it's longer than that, but i don't remember it. yeah. anywho. so. on with the main point of my story.

i completely realize that this will not be funny, as scott is not doing it. but i want to type it for posterity anyway. so like. you know those little wooden animals? and you press on the bottom and they collapse? well, my mom brought a couple and gave them to people... and he was SO amused by them. craaazy amused. like a 3 year old amused. so he picks one up, and makes it fall over, and says in this voice.. "i can't work, i'm too tired". (yeah, i know, it sounds stupid.) but no... it was THE funniest thing EVER. we all laughed for.. at least 5 minutes straight, i swear.

oh yeah. and our family, on this side, we do a grab bag gift thing, so that each person only has to buy one thing, right? so i ended up with: some monogrammed handkerchiefs (S), a cat-angel christmas ornament, aand some peppermint patties. mmm.. chocolate.

but seriously.. handkerchiefs?! whoooooo in the world wants handkerchiefs? ever? for anything?! meh well.

merry christmas, all ^_^ hopefully santa won't bring you handkerchiefs. unless you really want some.
