And boy is the weather outside frightful. o_o It's 43*F but we got lots of precipitation, and it's gray and icky.

Our family hosted the Christmas Eve party this year. It's the first time we've hosted a house party in a while. We used to be the go-to for the New Year's Eve party for our circle of South Side Filipino Faux Family, bu then someone else came along and her birthday is on NYE, so we've been going to her house for the past couple of years. Anyway, there's a lot of food at our house now. o_o We won't have to cook for the next week or so, lol. I spent part of the night watching the old Super Mario Brothers cartoon with my faux cousins (so bad it's good! I'm pissed that they took out the retro pop songs during the chase sequences, though), and then later on after midnight I watched John Woo's Hard Boiled, which I liked. I may track down his other gun fu films later. But if I'm awake for the rest of today (I am so frickin' tired, my sleep schedule is fucked up the wazoo), I may end up watching the second DVD of the SMB cartoon instead. So cracky.

Gifts so far include $40 in cash, a $50 check, $75 in Borders gift cards, a pair of black faux leather gloves,Gothic Charm School by Jillian Venters, volumes 2-5 of the Gintama manga, and a set of five plushies from the same series. My parents said they'll give out cash later because they were too busy/tired this entire holiday season to do much shopping, but whatever, I like what I got. Plus I have a good home with lots of food and a caring family and awesome friends, so that's plenty. Still, I'm not gonna turn down extra moniez. 8D I have my eye on a bunch of Emilie Autumn merch, including but not limited to an actual copy of the Opheliac CD and her book The Asylum For Wayward Victorian Girls.

Happy whatever-holiday-that-it-is-you-celebrate-in-winter! But remember, the axial tilt is the Real True Reason For the Season(tm).
