Christmas was tons of fun! My family and I always open our presents on Christmas morning. My dad made us sweet rolls which we ate with coffee before tearing into our presents.

I don’t know how excited other people would be about this, but my parents bought me new knives and a cutting board! We don’t have either at my apartment. Thus, I’ve been eating a lot of Lean Cuisines and canned soup instead of home-cooked meals. I can’t wait to actually cook again! 14. When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris. I love him! 15. (not pictured) I got a goddamn camera!!!!! Couldn’t you tell? It’s Nikon, and I think it’s pretty nice, even though I haven’t read all of the user’s manual yet. After we opened our gifts, we ate bagels with cream cheese, onion, tomato, and smoked salmon while watching DVDs of our home movies. They were very embarrassing…and it was really strange to see our poor dead doggies and all these people I was friends with in high school and haven’t really thought about since. Last night I had some freaky ass high school dreams, no doubt influenced by those videos. After lunch, we showered and headed over to my grandma’s house to hang out with my mom’s side of the family.
