Christmas was nice and drama-free, for once. I got up early to take care of a couple of friends' animals, and got the yams baked before I went over to my brother's house.
To my surprise, the turkey was almost done, other dishes were finished, and the tree was up. Nephew showed up and told us he had gotten a job at the local BMW dealership as one of their valets (it's a high-end place), and he'd signed up for spring classes at the local community college. I was boggled and very glad.
We got everything done for late lunch, including my turkey gravy. Opening presents was fun; my brother bought everyone halon fire extinguishers for their cars. The World's Best Niece gave me her old Olympus digital SLR, so now I need to get a macro lens to use shooting my jewelry.
I won the Weirdest Present Received award, since my sister-in-law's dad bought me a nice package of chocolates...and a UT Snuggie. I'm going to try to return it to Walgreens today. :-D
The WBN and I saw Sherlock Holmes, and we both give it an enthusiastic thumb's up!
I'm still having trouble with my sinuses and now I've developed a cough, but I can't get sick, since I have to work at IkkiCon next weekend. Think healthy thoughts at me, OK?
