Merry Christmas everyone. It’s been a busy but good one for me, despite the whole crippling illness and all that. As I wrote on Tuesday, I went to bed Monday night just throwing up like crazy, and that continued all of Tuesday. I ended up being up till about 6am on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning just sick as a dog. Then on Wednesday we went out to my dads for Christmas dinner and for presents. That was wonderful – all this awesome food, and I couldn’t eat a fucking thing. I ended up having a little bit of salad, vomiting it up about oh 10 minutes later, and spent the rest of the time away from everyone just wishing I would die. Or that everyone else would die, because I’m selfish that way.
We came home and put the kids to bed, then Janise wrapped up all the remaining presents she needed to do. We watched How I Met Your Mother while doing that, and are two episodes away from being done Season 2. The moment where we found out Barney travelled to San Francisco to tell Lily to come home actually brought tears to my eyes. I’d like to say it’s a credit to how great this show and the characters are, but really it’s because I am just a fucking pussy. The episode with Barney on the Price is Right was also fantastic. Seriously just one of the best fucking shows I’ve ever seen, and I am so glad Vin managed to turn me onto it. You are the man, as always, Vin.
We ended up being up till about 3am, but thankfully Mason didn’t get too excited about Santa until 8:30am. It was a great time, and he was fucking SCREAMING in joy at his presents. I got the wife a bunch of stuff, including Stephen King books, a GPS, a new cellphone and some clothes. Then I was all “Huh, did you not get your carpet steam cleaner? Oops, I musta forgot it” and went to the back room to retrieve it…getting her Nintendo Wii instead, and having her scream in joy too. I got a bunch of Affliction & Xtreme Couture shirts which I was well chuffed about.
My illness got the better of me though, and with fever, chills and vomiting I headed back up to bed and slept all day pretty much. I couldn’t even go to Janises familys dinner. Oh, shucks. So I slept till about 5pm, posted #4 Christmas movie, went back up to to bed to finish up Mary, Mary by James Patterson(I’ve been going through the whole Alex Cross series again), then came down to post #3 on the NPP Christmas Movies list and do some much-needed work while I have the house to myself. Also posted my latest achievement article. Now I’m going to post the #2 Christmas movie, head back up to bed for a bit to read Cross then return just in time for the #1 Christmas Movie, and finally it is all done.
And thank fuck for that.
