Happy Christmas

The low point of my Christmas weekend was working 10 hours on Saturday. But the highlights were many:

  • Getting to wear hair band t-shirts to my office
  • Reading up on the weird origins and weird traditions of Christmas, courtesy of Cracked
  • Good hair
  • Catching people making out in the front of the Volkswagen parked behind mine
  • Sweeney Todd
  • Ratatouille
  • Juno
  • The episode of Entourage with U2
  • Watching part of a marathon of The Hills
  • Double-Chocolate muffins
  • Good vodka
  • Having someone understand that I say I'm grumpy when I'm really just hungry
  • Winning the PH4H fantasy football league
  • A fast and furious text message exchange to wish my sister a happy birthday
  • Getting to tell a boy drinking light beer that "Real men drink vodka."
  • In response, being told that I "look like trouble"
  • Responding that such an assessment usually takes years -- and years of therapy
  • Talking about crappy American beer with a Scottish guy
  • Dancing
  • 80's music
  • Being inadvertently wished a Happy Christmas, and being aware enough to say, "That's awfully British of you."
  • Telling my friends, "I may be drunk, but I'm not that drunk."

All in all, the positives outweighted the negatives - which I guess is the point.

I'm jealous you met a Scottish guy.

He was nothing to be jealous about. Other than the accent, of course.
