I'm slowly but surely getting everything done for these steenkin' holidays. Can you tell I'm ready for it all to be over? I am. How sad, huh?
My orgy of cookie making is over. My mom helped, which was great because alone I probably would have taken twice as long. Calvin is not the best helper. He likes cookies. A lot. In fact it's probably the word he says the best, next to "bubbles" and of course "mommy" and "daddy". So when the cookies are cooling on the table he likes to get right up there and grab a few. Unfortunately he's not discriminating and grabs them even when he really isn't hungry and the hot ones get dropped really quick.
But I'm done with that and cookies have been doled out. I've resigned myself to the fact that out-of-state friends are going to get their presents late. And the final few people on my presents list are going to have an Amazon.com Christmas. Yep, I'm going the easy route and giving gift certificates. I love getting gift certificates but I know most people see that as a cop-out. Well, I'm copping out this year, baby, and I'm proud of it. I'll be done and that's all that concerns me at this point in the game. Next year I will be more organized but this year is a total wash.
Okay, on to less gripey subjects.... Ooh, I saw a good movie yesterday. It's called Bubba Ho-tep. It stars Bruce Campbell as a geriatric Elvis Presley and Ossie Davis as a fellow nursing home resident who also thinks he's John F. Kennedy. The two must work together to defeat an evil soul-sucking mummy who's knocking off denizens of the nursing home where they reside. If you get a chance, go see this movie. Bruce Campbell is hilarious and it's just good old-fashioned fun.
