Happy Holidays! -- December 27th

I’m not much of a holiday guy, but this week was pretty cool. I got to see lemur_lady while she was in to visit her family, and I actually had a nice time with my mom and sister over Christmas. I got to meet new members of my family, and spend some quiet time curled up watching Dexter Season 3 with icespark. What could be better for the holiday season? *grin*

Sunday I picked up Lemur_lady at the airport and we went downtown to have dinner and warm up at Steak n’ Shake. After eating we braved the freakin’ cold! to run over to Borders. Lemur_lady sneaky bought me a holiday gift (a Stephen Colbert desk calendar!) and then we headed back to my apartment to nest and de-thaw. We watched two episodes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer (“Once More with Feeling” and “Restless”) and then cuddled up to sleep. It was fantastic to have Lemur_lady cuddled up in my bed again! B)

Monday Lemur_lady and I slept for about twelve hours before finally emerging from my apartment for sushi. We then headed down to Bloomington, stopping into a knit shop and then hanging out at the Runcible Spoon until it was time to go meet her parents. They made us dinner, and I had an enjoyable time with them. After excellent food and conversation, I headed back to Indy to snuggle with Icespark and watch Dexter for as long as we could stay awake.

Tuesday I had to go back to work, but I started a 9:45 AM schedule which was much better than having to be at work at 8. I wound up leaving work two hours early thanks to E-time (Saca isn’t such a Grinch after all!), and spent the night alone, hiding out and storing up social energy before having to deal with my mom and family. I did some journaling and laundry, and stayed up way too late since I had the opportunity.

Wednesday I got up relatively early and met Icespark for lunch before driving down to Bloomington to meet up with cmhusted and her boyfriend Semo. Cmhusted drove us to Mt. Vernon to my half-brothers’ dad’s place, where Mom made us a huge yummy dinner, with homemade New York-style cheesecake for dessert. Mom got me a lot of crap for Christmas – Cmhusted was smart and asked for just money. B)

Thursday (Christmas itself) wasn’t quite as fun. I was cranky and didn’t sleep well, and Mom was too sick to join us for the yummy dinner she’d prepared. When we left I drove part of the way back, and then Cmhusted took over since she was getting car sick and feels better if she’s driving. I made it back to Icespark’s late, and spent the night snuggling and watching Dexter.

Friday night I wanted to go back down to Bloomington for Dadypi’s birthday. However, I am poor and my gas tank was on empty, and Icespark, who I was hoping would come with, was feeling sickly. Add thick fog and a hour drive to that, and we decided to stay home and just watch more Dexter. I’ll take Dadypi out later when the financial and meteorological forecast is better.

Today I worked, and then hung out with Icespark until lildomino returned from visiting her family. We’re hanging out watching House M.D. while Lildomino enjoys access once more to fast Internets. The rest of the weekend should be peaceful and relaxing – Bodies exhibit and maybe a game night tomorrow!

Hope everyone is having a happy holiday!

I've been meaning to go to the Bodies exhibit. I should endeavor to do so soon.

Sounds like a fun day. I get to work until 5:30 and my mom told me she was actually coming to Indy today, although I fear she's going to flake on me. She also told me she would call to set things up yesterday and never did :P

Will it be an open game night? In case mom flakes ? >_>

It will be an open game night, and drakefenwick wants to meet at my place at 7 PM. I don't have the community room reserved, but assuming its not in use I can probably get them to let me use it. B)

Is it just me or is Dexter fun to watch for you over and over again? Are you seeing different episodes or the same ones again?

It's definitely very re-watchable. I'm reading the first Dexter book (which corresponds to first season), watching second season again with cassiopia, and watching third season for the first time with icespark.
