Christmas Dinner - Chicken

Christmas…or how many movies can you watch in two days

Christmas was kind of OK and went much better than I expected. I did get enough gift certificates to pay for 1/3 of the lens I want! Oh, and Guitar Hero World Tour! And I think everyone liked what I got them. I think my fav was the Superman/Bears shirt I got for my dad, because those are two of his favorite things.

On Christmas Eve we went to see Yes Man. Which was pretty good. I mean, for the kind of movie it was. I kind of want to start a band like the one Zooey Deschanel is in in the movie. Then we came home and watched the copy of University of Illinois Vs. a Mummy that Brian gave me and Hamlet 2. Then I watched some of A Christmas Story and stayed awake tracking Santa until he got to Chicago.

On Christmas we went to see Benjamin Button. It was good but reminded me of Forrest Gump. And I didn’t quite get how the whole aging thing worked. Because

In Benjamin Button he was born as a baby but old but died as a babybaby, which didn’t make sense, and I was kind of expecting to see a big Brad Pitt with a baby head, like this:

My sister’s pug Samson came to visit. Him and Luke played.

I cooked Christmas dinner and it came out OK despite burning the carrots and them shriveling to nothing and despite accidentally dumping half a bottle of pepper into the chicken.

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
