I have a lot to say so I'm going to break it down so that I don't have one long entry that no one is going to read except for Karkota ;)
First thing: Monday at work I was sick again. When I walked in, I told Curtis that if I died today at work I was going to go home. He gave me a "yeah right" look and said if I die I would probably not be going home. I said that actually if I died I would definitely be going home. I don't think he got it.
I know no one really went into everything they got for Christmas but just mentioned a few things. Well, I want to mention more than a few, and it may be boring but you don't have to read if you don't want to.
I got a ICHTHYS ring from Anna and Katie (it was something small enough to take with me to Australia, and it means a lot, also cause I wanted a Fish ring for a long time anyway).
I got Where the Sidewalk Ends, Falling Up, and A Light in the Attic from Troy and I love them soooooo much.
A red white and blue scooby doo watch from Michele so that I know what time it is Down Under while feeling homesick at the same time.
My dear father...imagine this: a shoebox for people with big feet (like me) filled two thirds of the way full with...quarters. And a hundred one dollar bills. I really was so worried about money before but I think I'm gonna be alright now...my church gave me 55 bucks and the woman's missionary league also gave me 25 bucks. That was a nice surprise. I love God. He provides for me even for fun frivolous things.
Alright, that's all for this one.
Except, you know, I rerealized (that's not a typo...it's also not a word, but it's not a typo either) that putting things in here means that I have nothing to talk about when I see anyone in person. Aw, well. I still want to tell you about my Christmas Day, so read on.
I spent most of today with...yeah, I would say they're my second family. They (Troy's family if you didn't know) treat me like one of their own anyway. So anyway, first Troy and I exchanged gifts. Then I got travel scrabble from his parents, which was really really awesome. The tiles snap into place so they don't get lost and the game can also be saved for later. It's way cool...and Troy beat me somehow we're still not sure how that happened.... Then we ate. Then we watched: "This is my family. I found it all on my own. It's small, and broken, but still good. Yeah, still good." I cry everytime I watch that movie, it's soooo good. (Lilo and Stitch for those who haven't seen it.) Then we played Apples to Apples...three times. I think they liked it. I'm glad...although I lost miserably. I want to play with my CURF friends again...at least then I win occassionally. I would play with my friends down here but with the exception of Troy no one down here seems to like it very much. Bah on them I say.
Anyway after that I came down here and took over Troy's computer and I've been doing that ever since.
And that's all I'm writing about. I might still have some things left to make conversation about, maybe.
