Brief Hodge Lodge Update
Busy, busy couple of days so no time to post in the ol' blog. No gall bladder attacks since Wednesday, which was good because I had a buttload of stuff to get done.
Since I did feel better Wednesday I was able to go over to mom's and help make our infamous cream cheese cookies. Actually I ended up making a bunch of them for about two hours while Mom made a chocolate pie and more fudge. Cal wandered around and generally got in the way but we managed to get everything done before dinner and Christmas Eve present opening.
As usual, my mom bought a ton of stuff for everyone. She adores Christmas and loves buying gifts. The funny thing is every year she says something like "I feel like I didn't get you very much this year." And, it's not true. She has gone overboard once again but I guess I shouldn't complain because we benefit from her largesse. I will save the list o' loot for later. Maybe.
So now we're home after a long day of Christmas fun at my mom's. Cal is all wound up and is in his bed crying because he just doesn't want to sleep even though it's 11:00. Duncan is playing with some actual toys. He's had a videogame day today what with playing new Gamecube games and the Sega Dreamcast that arrived from the Ebay seller on Christmas Eve.
The original Soul Calibur game is mighty interesting. A lot of the moves are the same and the character designs are almost unchanged. And it's in Japanese with English subtitles, which is just too cool.
