Festivus for the rest of us.
Posted on December 27th, 2006 in Uncategorized

I wasn’t looking forward to Christmas this year. Most of my relatives went out of town, taking with them the traditional family party I’ve attended for nearly twenty-five years… but it actually ended up being okay. I got $30 worth of Starbucks cards from work (even a gift card from one of the few customers I love helping with her seemingly endless number of transactions)… and even though I suffered a mild stroke when I heard that Starbucks discontinued its Valencia syrup (I used to put eight pumps of it in my Passion Tea Lemonade), I still appreciate the gifts. The white elephant gift I got from our office Christmas party ended up being this twenty questions game that took me back to a happier summer last year (and a Target gift card… who wouldn’t use that?). Pammie got me something from my wish list (that will remain up for my birthday, people!) and I’m so excited to use my new headphones at the gym (and in my car since my radio is still broken). Chel made me this lovely painting and Shi got me a DIY book (SO me!). You can all thank Shi when I give you handmade soap for your birthdays. I hope you all had as good of a Christmas as I did and thanks to everyone who called or sent me a text even though I haven’t been around much. See you next year…
