Christmas has come and gone, and tomorrow I get to go into the office and celebrate peace on earth. I’ll be pretty much the only one there, as everyone uses up their vacation time for the year. I like this week especially. I get stuff done, and there’s no pressure if I don’t. We had a great Christmas Eve doing the traditional after-church activities: driving around looking at lights, singing off key and in funny voices, and eating our 7-11 supper. Christmas Day was nice and relaxed, and the next day Whiny and I went to see Avatar, then I made spaghetti sauce and we feasted before Whiny, Pepperkat, the as-yet-unnicknamed boyfriend of Pepperkat and I shredded some plastic on Rock Band 2.
Then, of course, there was Doctor Who! (I can’t wait for next week…)
The Nook is the Barnes & Noble answer to Amazon’s Kindle. I like it a lot, so far, even though I couldn’t download anything on Christmas day. I’m assuming their servers were slammed. It’s got a nifty touch screen at the bottom for navigation (including the ability to flip pages by swiping your finger across it like thumbing through a real book), and it came with a few free books (Dracula, Pride and Prejudice, and Little Women), a funny essay on the Nook by Dave Barry, and the Merriam-Webster Pocket Dictionary. It also plays mp3’s.
So to recap the weekend: Church, junk food, singing, prezzies, movies, eating, games and relaxation.
