After a lot of stressing out [no money, no time, everything sux!] we had a lovely Christmas eve with my mom, brother, and family. That's what it's about, right? Came home to midnight church bells ringing. I broke off the giant icicle hanging off our roof - quite possibly the most satisfying *snap* of my life. Lori and I wielded it like a mighty Elvin blade. I smashed it against the rusty metal clothes line pipe. *Smack!* Sounded like a baseball. Lori dancing to the Chemical Brothers in her red xxxmas bra. Lori makes everything allright.

We're packing up for some well-deserved R&R in Virginia, then driving up to Dean HQ in Vermont. A documentary classmate is lending me a second camera. Lori is in charge of that one. Blogumentary continues, life journey continues.

P.S. - Stan Brakhage DVD! Schizopolis DVD! Interactive narrative book! And... Sony PS2!

Hey Chuck,

Happy Holidays to you and Lori. I'm sure Santa is a blogumentary fan. Enjoy your trip to Vermont(you won't be that far from where I live in upstate NY). Can't wait to see the footage.

Ah, spacewaitress, that is most excellent news :-)

Posted by: Sharyn at Dec 26, 2003 6:45:05 AM

Yeah... I got them DDR for a housewarming present, and then I got them Karaoke Revolution for Christmas. Our friends Jonathan and Kelly also bought them a pile of PS2 games. We were pretty sad when we went to their house on Sunday and they didn't have a PS2 yet. "Look! We got you all these presents you can't play with!"

I posted yesterday but it didn't take for some reason. Glad to hear that you and Lori had a good Christmas. Enjoy your trip to Vermont. Barrett and I are now headed to a bad sweater party. I have obtained a ungodly large floral print sweater from the landlady and Barrett has one with large stripes of blue and orange suns and snowflakes. Life is good. Hope to see you all soon.

Ca-chee and Barrett

Aww yeah, thanks y'all!
Bad sweater party, that's ingenious.
Not at all disingenuous.
We're headed up to Dean country tomorrow morning. Still don't really have confirmation that I'm actually talking to anyone, but we're showing up hey.

Lori bought a PS2 on sale at Target the nite before we left. I stayed up WAAYYYYY too late playing Grand Theft Auto - Vice City. The first thing I did was accidentally kill a hooker, and from then on I was..err... hooked! DDR and kara-oke parties coming soon.

Happy Decemberween, one and all.

OMG - we didn't bring our still camera (only video). Stupid much? Went to the Smithsonian Museum of American History today and saw THE FRIGGING APPLE I COMPUTER, yes the sacred wood box. holy craaaaaaaap. Not to mention, like, ENIAC. Never thought I'd see my old Commie 64 in the Smithsonian.

Grand Theft Auto- VC is fun.
I like running over the pedestrians....
