Can you believe that it’s finally Christmas? Neither can I, I mean, it seems like it was just summer like a week ago, and now it’s Christmas, and it will be a whole new year in a week.
We didn’t go out of town like we usually do because Darrin thought he was going to work on Monday, and he didn’t want to drive for 6 hours just to have to drive back home tonight. So instead, we stayed home to enjoy the peace and quiet.
Presents… Darrin has the job, so he makes the money and buys everything. I can’t even afford to buy underwear, which by the way I asked for and got lol.
He really needed good cell phone service instead of his crappy Net10 service, so we went to Verizon and he bought himself an iPhone 4S. He wanted to buy the iPhone 4 because it was $99, and at first he did, but then they added $45 tax and sold him a package of accessories and it all came to $199. I told him to buy the 4S because I knew he would kick himself in the ass if he didn’t, but he didn’t think he could afford it. When he realized that the 4 didn’t do what the 4S did (Siri and voice recognition instead of typing), he changed his mind and switched a couple of days later. He had to pay the tax on the first one, plus the $35 restocking fee, but he’s really happy with it and that’s all that matters.
He asked me what I wanted, and he bought me the underwear that I mentioned before. 2 packages of boxer briefs which had 4 pairs per package for $32 each, but it was buy 1, get 1 half off, so it was $48 total before tax. See why I can’t afford to buy underwear? It’s expensive as hell lol.
We went to Kmart yesterday to buy presents for other people and he decided that he wanted to buy me something else, so he bought me a lava lamp. I’ve always wanted one, but could never afford one. It looks cool when it is working, but it’s mostly a blob on the bottom. I don’t know why it isn’t doing what it’s supposed to, but then again isn’t that just my luck? I finally get a lava lamp and it doesn’t go up and down. But I still love it and I’m sure it will eventually get the hang of it.
Chips high school girlfriend gave him a tetris game, no not the video game, this is a physical game with plastic pieces. It’s called Tetris Link. I think that I love it more than he does because I’m a gamer and he isn’t. He said he wanted to give it a try, but if he doesn’t like it then the only way I will be able to play it is if I can get people to play it with me via Google+ Hangouts.
I made some pumpkin pies yesterday and gave one of them with a container of Cool Whip to our tenant. I don’t know if they really wanted one or not, but I made it for them so I hope they like it. I love pumpkin pie, I don’t think you can have a Christmas without pumpkin pie, but that’s just me.
My final present will be the Christmas episode of Doctor Who. If we had gone to San Diego today, I would have missed it because I don’t have a DVR. I would have had to wait until it repeated, which I’m not sure when it will. So I’m very happy that we didn’t go for that reason.
We had lunch at China Town Buffet. We were going to go to either the Golden Corral or Hometown Buffet, but neither of them were open, so we ate Chinese food instead. It was good, I mostly ate all chicken, which is all I ever eat there, but it was very good and filling.
Well, I hope you all have a great Christmas and get lots of presents that you were hoping for. Happy Holidays.
