showered with gifts
Hello internet! I didn't know what to get you for Christmas, but then I found the perfect thing; a photo of a baby smoking a pipe:
That baby is Francisco and the pipe was apparently his dad's (per Francisco's sister)--I found that picture yesterday when going through Francisco's family pictures and scanning them. That family album is a gold mine, let me tell you, and I have only just begun to scan.
Our holiday was pretty good. The only thing not good about it was that Esther ended up requiring medication; Francisco picked it up from the vet on Friday morning, and it was a once-a-day thing, so he and I couldn't stay overnight at my sister's place on Saturday night, since we needed to be home on Sunday morning to give Esther her pill. Really only one of us needed to be there, but I didn't want him driving alone, since it was a lot of driving for just one person to do, hence the both of us driving around. We left Sharky at Minired's place, though, so he could entertain his grandparents and dazzle them with his tallness and his hair.
Things we did at Minired's:
1) Play games (dominoes, cards, Taboo)
And speaking of Missy, here is a bonus gift, Internet. I like to call it 'Missy and the Ham: A Love Story'
Gifts I received [please note--I was terribly spoiled and did not need so many things]:
1) Pink plastic bling-bling ring (it's at least 70 karats)
I've found my new dream job, though I'm pretty sure it would only be very part-time and might not actually pay. I want to serve on the Dubious Goals Panel. First of all, I love the word 'dubious' in that context, and also, it would be fun. This is absolutely neither here nor there, except yesterday morning we watched the Liverpool/Newcastle game, which Liverpool won 2-0, and once again one of Peter Crouch's goals is pending credit to him until the Dubious Goals Panel can review the footage. I'm positive they'll award it to him, because we saw the footage over and over again during the game, and it's clear it was his and not a keeper own-goal, though it Was a weird goal.
Song of the Day: Sleater Kinney -- Rollercoaster, at No Frontin'.
I'll post more songs tomorrow--I know I've been terribly lax about that recently. I'm turning over a new leaf, Internet! You'll see.
