These Bad Boys

Not much to say today. Christmas was okay. Mostly spent it with friends. Didn't see my family this yea, too many mixed feelings.

Had at least 5 Christmas dinners or something like that! Also cooked a bit myself (nothing like a Christmas dinner - just some lamb, ham, pasta).

I feel a little spoiled by all my friends (and I did my best to spoil them)! I took most out for a sushi dinner, which I paid for (including any beverages they got). That ended up being about $234 and I threw in $20 or $30 for a tip and a few tossed in some change at the table for a tip too. Surprising only one person didn't make an appearance and I'd booked a table to 10 so we had 9 that evening. It was good because everyone got to see everyone and talk and catch up and it was a good time.

I did get some candles this year, 2 are bee's wax candles and I've never had those before but it reminds me of Lang Pioneer Village, a place I used to go to a couple times a year as a kid. All the houses you went into smelled of candles and then there were the ones that smelled like yummy fresh baked cookies! I still remember the general store where you could buy candies they made and those cool little rag dolls. Sadly as I got older and newer people starting working there it just lost it's touch... I feel like the people who worked there when I was young were hard core into re-enacting stuff like that. I remember some women used to make yarn and they worked some spinners, then others knit the sweaters, scarves and other clothing they made.

Anyways, I also got a couple puzzles, one is the old Hyrule map Very Happy Now if I had a place I could put these together and not have to chase cats away! They're steal the pieces or just run over the puzzle!

I also got these awesome little dudes!

Garrus is one of the characters from Mass Effect. I always liked him and part of that was because of his voice and he made some funny jokes Smile

The other is Altair, from the original Assassin's Creed. I liked him the most. My friend who gave him to me called my other friend (who got me Garrus) and asked him which one I'd like.


"You sure"

"Oh yea, definitely. Altair"
