Whew. I guess the last few days caught up with me, because I fell RIGHT asleep from 7 to 9. So much for gaming. Also, yay! They kept me on as a permnanent associate, but I have realllllllllllllllllllly scant hours. New Year's week I work THREE HOURS (although I may work the sunday, they do our schedules Sun-Sat. when almost everyone makes the week go Mon-Sun).

If it's mulled wine it doesn't count.

Dinner was nice at Brando's aunt but he's been real sick again this evening. His sister seemed to really like the earrings I gave her (and presumably the chocolates..)so that was a load off. Brando's mother drew my name and gave me this super cute sweater and sparkly winter socks. Brando's dad drew his name and gave him new jeans and a warm thermal sweater.

Both of them also gave us $50 in a card and his Grandmother gave everyone in the family $100. I feel a bit uncomfortable accepting money from his family but I know that they would never accept me trying to give it back and might take offense to me pushing the subject, that's just their family tradition and I want to respect that. Maybe in more time I'll feel less strange with accepting money from them since I know that it's important to his family.

Can't wait to open up my Xmas presents tomorrow morning. I'm just opening the one from my boyfriend at midnight, since I think it's a canister of fancy hot chocolate and I'm both out of cocoa and want a nice cup Xmas morning. And then I still have Mom and Ron's presents to open up on the 27th/28th, since I can't see them til then and wouldn't open anything early. AND the present from my Aunt/Uncle/cousins in the evening, since we're going there for Xmas dinner.

We almost had a white Christmas....and then the snow turned to rain.

My baby half-brother (okay fine he's 2) got a tent and sleeping bag set! He's adorable. But not so much when he's cranky and it's late, and then takes my phone ("mine!") and proceeds to cry about me taking it back when I need to go back home. XD

...My dad gave me ears. (elf ears for Zelda, Yui, Asuna, etc.) :'D

I got footie-pajamas from my in-laws. They're soft and warm.

1 pair of pants=made! 1 (smaller) pair to go!

And then two more patterns to draft (hopefully not too difficult) and then I'm done. But I only need those on Friday.

Oh no! I'm sorry to hear that. (The universe will definitely never forget its Galactic Pretty Fish.)

Haha, thanks. Usually though I'm just stupidly ambitious about what I can make, and ballgowns are always ridiculously pretty and elaborate. I just lure myself in with all those ruffles and shiny trims. *grabby hands*

These are both awesome presents, seriously.
(Also augh I am stuck just sitting here until my sister gets up. >.> We always start Christmas present stuff around 5 AM and sleep again later, but at this rate I'm probably just going to have to sit here until 7. Sigh.)

EDIT: Hey, ocarina players!
Just got an e-mail from STL Ocarinas, and they're having a 15% off sale on their online store! Coupon is "endof2012". They've got a lot of sheet music for ocarina too, like Zelda and Final Fantasy stuff, if you're interested. Thought I'd share!

Merry Christmas and everything else you might be doing!

And here's a friendly reminder that Scrooge was the original Snape.

We could. I got clothes. Clothes. More clothes. Tongs. A teapot. Clothes. A can opener
