So Xmas was typical and annoying. I didn't get anything I wanted; but I didn't really want anything, so it worked out zero-sum. I enjoy most of all opening presents at my grandparents' in Slidell: they are the most animated and eccentric people of their age I know and will miss this tradition when they are gone. I got a call from a friend who had blew us all off for a few years the other day, and perhaps I'll see him later on; I haven't decided how to behave around him yet, but I have a day to think about it. I saw Cold mountain today, and despite the two female lead actresses (whose careers I am displeased about spending money on furthering), I thought it was okay. Still have not seen Lord of the rings, and have pretty much lost the will to see it, or do much of anything until i go back home.
All said and done, though, I'd have preferred to have slept through the entire goddamn holiday season.
