Still in the midst of Christmas cheer, but pretty much everyone else has passed out. Mrs. R has been baking most of the day, and the other two are just wiped from our typical holiday excesses (sleeping off the salt ‘n’ sugar high of last night’s convenience store run). Whiny pooped out a couple of hours ago, and Pepperkat is zonked in front of “A Christmas Story.” I’ll be rousing them in a little while so we can head down to my brother’s place for dinner.
We didn’t get up extremely early, since the little kids are little no more. However, by 7:30 or so we had the Christmas music in the CD changer (except for the Rasputina CD someone forgot to pull out) and were sipping on coffee and opening gifts.
I know you’re dying to find out what us fashionable folk got for prezzies, so I won’t keep you in suspense any longer.
I got 4 new harmonicas, a copy of the Robert Plant/Alison Krause CD “Raising Sand”, a copy of David Halberstam’s book on the Vietnam War “The Best and the Brightest” (I loved the latest one on Korea, “The Coldest Winter”), and Medieval II: Total War.
Mrs. R got Simpsons “Hit and Run”, and CD’s by the B-52’s, Etta James and Michael Buble. Whiny got a couple of games for his DS, and Pepperkat got the hardest game in the world to find: a copy of Guitar Hero III for the Wii.
To top it all off, we cranked up the credit cards to 11 and got tickets for the lot of us to see “Spamalot” in March.
So, what did Santa bring you?
