Merry Christmas to those that celebrate, just plain wishes of joy to those that don’t. I got lots of books and cool pajamas and the all usual stuff from my family. We had a lovely dinner last night, which I made and will probably put pictures up of because it’s so rare I make something like that. Now I’m going for a walk along the river with my mom and then off to my aunts’ for more food and awkward conversations (I’m pretty sure that whole part of my family thinks I’m just plain weird, but they try v.v. hard anyway, bless them for that). After dinner, then James Bond movie, then tomorrow is all out shopping extravaganza with my sister. Then much more socializing. I should be ready for complete hermitude when I get home to Tennessee.
