It was a rotten day. I would whine more but I've had worse. Novelty: I have never had to take over #16 because the cashier running it locked herself out of the car while on lunch.

At the Famous Amos. Several miles away. She still hadn't got back by the time our shift was over.

Also I took advantage of things going to 75% off, and I have some candy gift-sets in mint and dark chocolate and coffee flavors. Didn't even pay as much for all 3 as I would have for 1 at the original price. And! *drumrolls and sparkly lights*

A Foot-Spa. A beautiful heat/bubbles/massaging thing that will make my achy feet happy. ..And possibly make me squeal, because I can be a bit ticklish in the feet, but that's okay. I've wanted one of these for years, but always they're gone by the time I have any money for it, or they're too expensive in the first place, but! Not this time.

Oh! And the gingerbread house kit, which will be something I've never done yet, and bits and pieces of necessaries. I have Loot!

Meanwhile, Yuletide has not revealed yet. :( I am all ready to glomp my writer and bounce around singingly and possibly scare her/him to bits! Unless crazy suspicions prove true. But I don't knooow, and while I was content before, now I am aware of Waiting. Wild irritation and speculations ensue.

Now to get things settled and put away and commence the using of the Foot Spa. Which so deserves capitalization.

Back from the bookstore and some looking at Christmas lights. I had thought about going to a movie, but I just didn't feel like it. Yuletide's got me craving Troopers, and Chrono Trigger/Cross. So!

One playing on the computer while I play the other and have an early lunch. <3

Also found the cutest little thing for my late Christmas packages, which I'll finally be able to think about since I'm not flattened under other thing

Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year!

Yesterday being Christmas Eve, I ended up across town at Dad's house, with Val and her kids. Well, the girls were out there, Kyle was off hiding. I sat and talked with everyone awhile, joking but slightly uncomfortable. And I got loved on by their dog, ack!

Me: o.o Um. Hello doggie why are you so energetic?
Doggie by the name of Bear (as voiced by Dad): New person! I don't know you, I've never seen you before, but you're my new best friend! Play with me!

XD It was not so bad after they got him to calm down some? Although Dusky went nuts sniffing at me when I got home. He climbed all over me and licked my face and I smelled like dog. :P

Of course I got presents too. From Dad and Mom, who got Dad to pick things up in her name. ...I did not expect so many presents! Really, I made this little list that I figured no matter what, Dad could find something on it. Well, between him and Mom I have:

Dad:
Yami no Matsuei #7
the Riddle of the Wren by Charles de Lint ( I have been drooling over the Charles de Lint books every time I go to the bookstore after my manga, but keeping up with my Yu-Gi-Oh comes first. And I still need to catch up with the squee over how good it's getting, but an idea? Picture YnMalik holding his own severed head while talking to Mai. Isn't it Christmasy?! ;p )
Ferngully
Cars (I saw this while stuck in electronics the other night, and it is a silly power-of-suggestion thing? But it made me feel more confident driving. And I'll take that anywhere I can get it. ^^ )
The Goonies
my Christmas coffee! Santa's White Christmas. *sips the coconutty goodness*
and a Starbucks gift card

Mom:
Final Fantasy X (I can finally catch up!)
Final Fantasy VIII (which my brother 'borrowed' once upon a time. >:p )
Parasite Eve II (disc got damaged :/ same for the first one, which I'll probably hunt down myself sometime soon - I miss the eerieness)
Breath of Fire II for the Gameboy! :D I will play the whole series - now I'm only missing I and V.

Dude. I think there were two things on that list I didn't get. A bit stunned here. @.@ I called Mom in the middle of making this entry, and spent a good half hour on the phone with her. I've been invited to drive up there and spend part of my vacation with her and Grandma, once I put in for it? I actually might.

She offered to fix Sunalarm for me, which means more than amount of Christmas presents. Made me want to cry.

After I left, I went driving around light-looking. Didn't see anything special, but I actually enjoyed myself driving for once. I went to the neighborhood near the Cummer museum? There is something magical about driving past all the lighted houses in the quiet and knowing all those people are together for Christmas. ^_^

You know, there have been things bothering me, and I was going to try and put them into words here. But now is not the time. Now is for enjoying myself and dreaming, and maybe re-reading my NaNo so I can get back to work on it - for all the strain it was putting me through, it felt good too. It's probably the single oldest story I have in me, and I kept feeling surprised by how much resonance it has with the rest of the stories. Even though the two main characters don't run into any of the others much.

Never mind noticing my own imagery and personal patterns more, and how eerie and bleak it feels that there is no Tree of any significance in there. Though there shouldn't be, since that's at the opposite end of the spectrum.

I've just generally been feeling fey and aggravated, clutching at imagery and thoughts that go by too fast to be caught. I started reading the Dark is Rising Sequence after my Yuletide was done? And didn't even notice that I actually started Will's book on his birthday until I was sitting on the porch Christmas Eve morning and reading it - and noticed some birds mobbing another one across the road. It just popped into my head that was when I had started.

Yuletide: Requiem at Reichenbach Moriarty and Sherlock Holmes, and believe me, the Professor belongs at the beginning of that. This is the beautiful, wonderful fic that was written for me for Yuletide, and while I've been told it has been rec'd already? There is no way I am going to fail to do so myself, be it the thousandth time. ^_^

Because it is the night the world begins again, no matter how much I enjoy New Year's Day. ;p
