I love Christmas. I love people opening presents that I've given them, I love opening Christmas, I love that no one in the family goes to work or attempts to do anything productive at all. I love the traditional lasagna and ribs for dinner.

Also, a note on family gatherings on Christmas Eve: Starting out present opening by everyone under 22 opening a nerf gun is a good way to go. This leads to a 20 minute Nerf gun fight and repeated Nerf gun volleys throughout the night. It's really quiet something.

I am home. Praise be to God.


I am very tired. If I were a super hero, my fatal flaw would be the need to sleep 8 hours a day to be functional. As it is, this is simply one of many flaws.

I'm excited about Christmas. I'm excited to see my family, and I'm excited to give everyone their gifts, and I'm excited to not have to go to work for a week and a half, and I'm excited to sleep in, and I'm even excited to see snow, from the warm comfort of the house.

I am currently bored of reading the news, which is what I'm using the (blessed) free internet for. SLEEP.


Have been at airport for full three hours now. Flight scheduled to leave in 38 minutes. Flight predicted to leave in 80 minutes. Updated time to get from one plane to the other in Minneapolis: 32 minutes. Doable? Maybe. Helpful airline person has booked me on two flights, however, so if I miss the first one, i get on the second, 50 minutes later. Am very pleased about this. Very much preferable to the time Jeremy CANCELED my flight and rescheduled me on a flight 7 hours later. It's been awhile since that happened. I'm considering forgiving him.

Oh. And happy Christmas Eve.
