So, yeah, hopefully my last Christmassness for another 363 days ... Final total swag:

  • A total of USD$100
  • (book) House of Leaves
  • (book) Witches Abroad
  • (book) The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents
  • (book) Color of Magic x2 (I gave the second copy to my mom, who will reimburse me)
  • (book) Odd and the Ice Giants
  • A datebook
  • A couple of shirts
  • Miscellaneous snacks and stocking-stuffers
  • A silly hat
  • A moose-head doorknob-hanger I've been passively trying to get rid of

Also, I forgot to mention, we (that is, my dad, my stepmom, my sister, and I) went for chinese food last night. The chopsticks came in a little packet with instructions written on them (with a diagram after each step), which I am not making up:

Learn how to use your chopsticks
  1. Tuk under       tnurnb
    and held firmly
  2. Add second chcostick
    hold it as you hold
    a pencil
  3. Hold tirst chopstick
    in originai   position
    move the second
    one up and down
    Now you can pick
    up anything:

On the front it says:

Welcome to Chinese Restaurant.
Please try your Nice Chinese Food WIth Chopsticks
the traditional and typical of Chinese glonous history
and cultual.

The waitress called me "darlin'" at one point, which caused Hilarious Teasing from the others, who instructed me to get her number. However, before the evening was out, she had called each of us "darlin'." Naturally, when we got our fortune cookies, we each added "... in bed" to the end when reading them; I was the obvious winner, because my fortune was "The great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do."

well, everything in life becomes awesomer by adding "in bed". One of the true facts of life and all

Chinese food you say? Any sign of one Miss Hong Meiling, who is totally a dragon?

Or is she too busy (a) keeping the SDM gate, (b) sleeping, (c) and/or getting pwnt by Sakuya?

Heh, you seem to have gotten the zen-advice cookie instead of the future-advice cookie. But, I agree with that... The satisfaction of accomplishing something is much higher when you were told you couldn't.

Just remember, some of these are better improved with "except in bed" instead of plain "in bed"...
