First off, thank you to everyone who responded to the last entry. I appreciate it, and everything is okay for me now. And Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. :|b

I really needed that RP love meme boost. It's been a slow, arrhythmic month RP-wise because of all the holiday shopping and other stresses, so I was really starting to close up in terms of RPing and interacting. I'm hopeful things'll be good once we get started with the next year.

Let's see... Lots of gifts this year.

Cut for gift haul )

And now I'll be spending the weekend watching Hell's Kitchen. For the most part.

Merry Christmas, everyone. Understandably, I haven't been around to say these things in-person, and I probably won't be around much (or possibly at all) Christmas Day, either. It was our family's turn host the annual Christmas party, so we've had our big family in the house all night.

Everyone enjoyed the white elephant game that we hosted this year; no one else has done it before, and I think everyone will want to continue it for future Christmas parties. Everyone was laughing really hard once people started stealing stuff. We then did the annual Secret Santa reveals, and then family gifts. When you've got a family of 30+ attending, it gets pretty hectic, so it took us about five hours to get through everything (including dinner).

It'll only get more hectic next year, with my cousins expecting twins in January. Whew. Crazy to think about.

Thank you to everyone who has sent out Christmas and holiday greetings, thank you [livejournal.com profile] nata_de_coco for whatever it is you needed my address for :P, and thank you [livejournal.com profile] fuckyeahfish for the very thoughtful Christmas message. I'm happy and blessed to know all of you.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

I was running around most of yesterday getting things ready for our annual family Christmas party. I like how the parties have slowly become less of a glamorous affair each year; no Chinese-dressed theme or anything silly like that this year.

I'll make a list of things I received this Christmas and add it to this entry later on. I've just got a few things, but I'm happy with them. ♥

For our secret Santa gift exchange, I got my cousin Nintendo T-shirts and a Prinny. You know you got them something good when they're already joking about scenarios where they can show off the T-shirt (it's a black shirt with a purple poison mushroom and the words Game Over on it).

I'm worried about the weather, though. We've thankfully had clear weather for the last three days, but it's currently snowing outside. And my parents and sister have to head home today, since my mom has to work on Friday. I hope they'll figure something out...

And now I'm going back to bed. Need more sleep.

The list of presents )

Merry Christmas to everyone that celebrates it.

Just got back from a cousin's house. Have been playing Rock Band all night. (We've owned the game for over a month now, but I never found reason to mention it...) "Enter the Sandman" and "Paranoid" own my soul.

I received some nice things this Christmas, the most notable being an electric keyboard so I can play piano again. Now I just need to get my video game music folder from home and bring it back to the apartment... Maybe I can finally spend time perfecting "Kuja's Theme." ... Again. I'm so out of practice. -_-;

And thank you for the cute card, Adri. I'm sorry I haven't been able to send out a card for you. =\ I hope I can make it up to you somehow.

Oh, and I want to kill DHL right now. My Christmas presents for my siblings have yet to come in.

In case you'd rather not read 'bout presents )

Hmm... Don't feel like writing. Don't feel like being on computer much longer, either. Think I'll just go play piano or something.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone. Hope everyone's having a good time.

I will be going to Seattle (yet again) for a family Christmas party. Here's hoping that I don't get anymore perfumed lotion; I've got bottles of that already...


Edit: Hum... Second present for the season opened. Kathryn (brother's girlfriend) gave me Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. Shall play it when we come back. Jen gave me some anime DVD ... forgot the name of it already. It wasn't exactly my type of thing, but she just knew that I watched anime, so... *amused*

Will list all my gifts afterwards. It's nice to remember what I get each year.
everlastingsoul: (Moment)
I think it goes without saying that I won't be around (not that I'm "around" a lot anyway). Gonna have the annual family Christmas party over in Seattle, so ... chances are I won't be online until Christmas morning. Maybe. I dunno what's gonna happen yet.

In the mean time... Merry Christmas to everyone that celebrates. And if you don't ... you probably take part in some commercialized version of the holiday, so Merry Christmas all the same. XP

*sighs and kicks her Caesar and Albert muses away* Why do you have to be so bloody active when I have to do Secret Santa fics? It's very, very upsetting, because I can't get distracted by other projects right now. *glances at other Silverberg muses and slowly shakes head*
