Well, Christmas has come and gone. It was a good season, though busy, especially given that I work in retail. Anyway, here are a couple things my mom got me for Christmas.
No, my mom didn’t buy me beer. She got me and my dad matching steins. I provided the beer. (gotta take ’em for a test drive after all) Seriously, people I work with were like: What, she didn’t provide anything to put in it? I’m like: I’m 38, I think I can buy beer. 😛
She also got me this:
Now, this is wickedly awesome. I’m not much into comic collecting, but she knows I love reading comics and thought (correctly) that I’d like this vintage beauty. I’ve of course read it before, but it’s always worth a re-read, as this is the comic adaptation of my favorite Star Trek movie. Anyway, wickedly cool.
And, of course, ’tis better to give than to receive. My mom wanted a kitten, so we found her a free one. She’s adorable. When it comes time, I’m going to pitch in on the spaying when she’s big enough. For my dad, he wants some tool thing that’s about $100, so I’m going to order that for him. And, of course, I spent some time with family, when I wasn’t working, including my uncle that I only see ever few years because he lives in Colorado and I live in Ohio. He was visiting, which was nice, and my grandmothers and a couple of my aunts stopped by. Good times. And, on Christmas Eve, I went to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I absolutely loved it. I have three days off in a row at the end of next week, I may go again, and I’m looking forward to the Blu-Ray release, which I’ll get at work as usual.
Anyway, I hope everyone had a good Holiday season and I hope we’re all ready for a new year. 🙂
