It's all over...
Although there was not even a hint of snow here in the great white north, xmas spirit ran amok at the in-laws and friends. Much food was eaten, many, many, many sweets were looked upon, drooled over, then left for someone else to enjoy...and of course more than a few beers, bloody Ceasars, martinis, Moose Milk, Marguerittas, Pina Coladas, Rum/pineapple cocktails, tequila shots etc were inbibed.
Pamer's Wife and I spent Xmas eve drinking marguerittas and eating burittos and nachos while watching "Tokyo Drift" and "Lucky Number Slevin". So much for the traditional holiday movies, but to be fair I'd already watched "Scrooge" with Alastair Sim, "Christmas Vacation" and "A Christmas Story" in the days prior.
Last year it was Indian food and The Lord of the Rings triology so I guess we are starting a tradition of eating different foods and curling up to some movies. I think next year we'll try Sushi and Die Hard or something.
Pamer's Wife made a simply excellent gormet meal for Christmas Day with the parents. Atlantic Halibut with spinach, served with a creamy Shrimp Risotto and squash and rutabaga. She also made a cream puff bread with leak and asiago cheese...i couldn't eat enough of it...crispy on th outside and fluffy in the middle. So Good!!
Presents were within reason this year too (even though I protest each year that we don't need anything). I got my socks and underpants, chockies and DVD's (South Park Season 8 and Venture Brothers Season 1).
In-Laws also did something unexpected. They sprang for a Disney Holiday for the entire family in Feburary. They keep saying that we don't get together enough so this should solve it for a while at least, and really, who can say no to Mickey and Donald?
Well that's it i guess...I see this morning that we finally got some snow, only a little. The dogs will love that...you've never seen dogs act like complete kids until you see mine whinng to go out and then roll around and slide in the snow...comical.
I look forward to seeing you all in the new year. Thanks for reading and commenting
