Doll head planter.

He doesn’t want another dog licking his penis. (Or, a Bromann Family Christmas)

I hope all y’all had a very Merry Christmas/Hanukkah/Goat Day/Whatever it is you celebrate this time of year.

As Bromann Family tradition dictates, we went to see a movie this afternoon: Sweeney Todd. It was an enjoyable movie, good, but not fantastic. It also felt entirely too long when it started at 11 and we weren’t going to open presents until after the movie. I also didn’t like the ending even though it was appropriate but sometimes you just want everything to be happy and smiley and it’s so completely not.

So once the movie was over we headed back home. Jen and Dale brought their pug Sampson. Surprisingly our dog Luke was well behaved and didn’t try to kill him, except he spent the whole night trying to lick Sampson’s private areas.

Then we opened presents. My mom was thrilled with the postcards and CD I got her of the Bellagio fountains and my dad liked the presents I got for him at Pottery Barn Kids and my sisters liked their books and kitchen gadgets (hand blender for Nat, tomato press for Jen) and my dog completely ignored the stuffed sushi I got him because he was too busy licking dog penis.

Presents I got included a couple of Lonely Planet guides, some Martha Stewart kitchenware (because it comes in my shade of blue), and a kickass Illini sweatshirt.

Oddest gift goes to this one that Jen gave me:

Doll head planter.

Best gift will surely be blogged about tomorrow once I get a chance to start using it.

Then my aunt came by and we ate dinner of roast beast, mashed potatoes, green beans and bacon, rolls, macaroni, and salad. Sorry, I did not take pictures. Then we ate my buche de Noel. Then that was about it.

Two hours later and my aunt is still downstairs, but I came back up to my room to play with my toys and talk to Joshua who iss in Korea right now where it is morning. He is not eating bugs. 🙁

I hope everyone had a wonderful day! Merry Christmas everyone!

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.
