I didn't get any material stuff, but I did get to spend some time with Diana awhile ago. That's kind of rare nowadays because she's so busy and not around much anymore.


But I don't mind not getting anything. There really isn't much that I want or need anyway.

The best gift was from my good friends Paris and Raymond who got married this spring. They gave me a dual-sided picture of Ray and I, proudly wearing our kilts (I was his best man), along with other various wedding photos. That picture, along with the kilt pin they gave me at the time, are both on display in the living room. What a wonderful reminder of one of the biggest honors of my life.


I couldn't ask for better.

My roommates got me something, but I doubt it's the wireless keyboard for my computer that I wanted. I think it's clothes... hope they included the receipt because they always buy something I never wear and eventually give away because they never get the size right. How hard is it to just give me a gift card like I asked for if they can't get the original request? A $30 visa gift card is better than a $50 shirt that's too big.


I'm going to L.A. next year and avoiding the gift exchange.


Just to update, the gift my roommates gave me was actually the wireless keyboard I asked for. That Apple keyboard is TINY! I need to set it up before going to work. I also got some homemade spiced bread and a $25 Itunes gift card.


Still going to L.A. next year though.


I played a prank on my roommate with his gift; he likes his gift to be a wrapped surprise and got b@tchy when I wanted to give him the gift without wrapping it (you know, save the environment and my nerves since I do some of the worst wrap jobs on the face of the earth). So I wrapped a dead hard drive in a box and put then the envelope containing the actual gift on top. Inside the envelope (with a Visa gift card) I wrote:


"I know you like surprises, so here it is: don't bother opening the gift box. Ain't sh@t in it." SURPRISE!!"


I found the unwrapped box by the door last night when I got home from the guy I'm seeing new "family".

Really good Christmas this year!

-Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell

-Soundtrack to the new Gypsy revival (starring Patti LuPone)

-Four bottles of vanilla Frappuccino

-"Her Sacred Spirit Soars" (beautiful song by Eric Whitacre)

-SPORE (the best game in the history of all games)

^The thank you note:


Dear ,


Thank you for the picture. I really appreciate it. I found the perfect place for it:


The bathroom.


It really helps me out for the proper motivation when I got to go.


I figure I'll keep it there until we run out of starter paper for the fireplace.


Thanks again!
