Crimmas Eve 2006

Friday, my friend/sista (haha) David came into town on his way through to Nashville. We went out to Amsterdam (a bar here in ATL) and got a little bit lit up (this is an awful picture):

 My best friend Larry joined us later in the evening and it was nice to see him before he left for his Mom's up in North Carolina.

But yesterday was an errand day and I ran around getting groceries and wine (the most important part of a holiday party...the alcohol!) A hundred dollars later I had a trunkful:

 After THAT, I got a wild hair up my butt and decided to go buy some paint and start in on painting my "upstairs den". It's going to be kind of a monochromatic theme (black/white/grey) with some red accents. It's about time I put some energy into that room. I spend a good bit of time in it.

 I woke up at 8:30AM this morning, decided to chill with some Final Fantasy XII, and then started cooking at 10:30AM. I'm making these things called "chicken yummies" for about 4 guests which are kind of a dumpling style thing. They always get rave reviews. I just finished prepping them so now all I have to do is stick them in the oven later today. Got three bottles of wine, a chardonnay, a zinfindel, and a merlot. Figure that should cover the tastes. Chilling the vodka in case anyone wants to do some flavor shots. Doubtful, but I might want some LOL :)

Christmas tomorrow I think will be a very quiet day for me. My big plans are to wake up, open a few presents from my family, bake the traditional cinnamon rolls (and make a pig of myself and eat all eight of them), play some Final Fantasy XII, and later meet up with some friends for a movie and possibly some Chinese food. I have been a BAD boy with eating and I can feel a bit bloaty, but it's all good. I'll just spend a few hours at the gym after the holidays and knock it back off (thank goodness for a high metabolism).

I have all this coming week off so I am going to finish up painting this room and try and do some outstanding home repairs. Looking forward to trying out my new miter saw that Mom bought me for my Christmas present. I bought some OH so fashionable (not) safety first when dealing with flying bits of wood you know!

I hope everyone has an amazing holiday (whichever you decide to celebrate): Christmas, Winter Solstice, Hanukkah, Quanza, or my personal favorite...Festivus...the holiday for the "Rest of Us" :)
