We exchanged gifts.

I got some good clothes, a new cat calendar ('Bad Cats' calendar for 2007, to go with a book I gave my mother a couple of years ago, which my sister has now given back as a memento), some more Chardonnay (by 'Three Blind Moose', but according to the label it's 'fruity' - ugh!), a $25US American Express giftcard (these things are a pain in the ass to use, btw, but if I tell my sister this I'll pay the price - plus, it's really only a $20 giftcard because there's a $5 fee to use it at the register), an interesting hardback book about the 'lost art of diagramming sentences' - which in fact is a topic of great interest to me. I think that was it. My godmother's family couldn't come because of her dementia. I'll leave my three gifts for them here with my sister and she'll get them to them.

I gave out my gifts, which were well-received. I gave my sister's man a boxed set of DVD's about combat jet fighter pilot show squadrons, ala the Blue Angels. His son is a combat pilot in the Navy. I gave my dad the World at War series DVD's. I gave my sister a folkie CD, a stuffed toy cat/panther (very well received, and of great interest to her own fuzzy cat who is using it as combat practice), that Australain Reisling, and a Dead Sea salts/manicure kit (one of three I bought as gifts for people, the other two are for 'godsisters'). I got two bottled/scented candles for my godmother. That's it, I think.

They ate ham, I ate Nutrisystem turkey dogs on wheat bread with lots of mustard. I hate ham/pork. Nasty stuff.

I'm in one of those murky, dark moods and I want to do darkness.

I ordered two of Amethystium's other CD's on eBay. I managed to get them for a much better price than on Amazon, including the shipping, brand new. I highly recommend them if you're looking for contemplative, epic yet mellow electronica that you can simply relax or space out with.

I miss my fuzzy baby cat. I want my Roisindubh. I know she misses me. I know she\'s going to be very excited when she sees me through the window as I come to the door. She'll cry out at me, she'll come to the door as I open it and she'll be fuzzy. I love my cuddly tiger.

Once everyone went to bed I'll get on the writing and thinking. I'll grabbed my sister's computer (which I'm on now, it's a laptop), and to do some surfing. I've been coming up with ideas. Kolecki said he'd take a look at some of my ideas from the perspective of a sci-fi fan. He's generally avoided reading my work in the past because, as he's said, "I know it's there, I know it's evil and I keep it away." He's afraid it'll scar his mind. Well, it will, but that's beside the point...
