Christmas 2009

Sunday, December 27th, 2009 No comments

I really enjoy these 2-week Christmas breaks we get every year.  I know the dog likes having me around more.  I spent the first few days working on a few projects but since then I’ve been in full enjoyment mode.

I went to Jackson for Christmas, but stayed for only a day.  Once again I just wanted to be in my own home and the dog was unhappy being cooped up.  I didn’t have a lot of Christmas spirit this year until Christmas Eve.  I’ve enjoyed having a low-key year in terms of holidays and not doing much to celebrate.  Next year I think I want to start some of my own traditions.  Maybe I’ll do that traveling thing I keep telling myself I’m going to do.  One of these years I want to spend Christmas in my home even if I have to buy tickets for everyone.

Once again there weren’t a lot of gifts because people didn’t have money to spend.  I know Christmas isn’t all about getting presents, but I do miss getting presents.  I like being surprised.  Maybe things will be better next year.  What did I get?

  • Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Season 1 on blu-ray
  • A new wallet to replace the one I accidentally washed a while back
  • Dexter coasters (early present that I got a few months ago)

I did buy myself some CDs, clothes, video games, and blu-rays.  Every time I tried shopping for others, I found good deals on stuff that I wanted for myself.  I’m going to get good use out of everything.

Dexter: The First SeasonLately we’ve been watching season 1 of Dexter. Oh wow! What an incredible show this is! Dexter is about a forensics blood splatter analyst who lives a secret life as a serial killer. The twist is that he only kills bad people. I guess I really get into the dark shows these days. So far we’ve always been eating when watching it, which is weird considering some of the stuff seen onscreen. Dexter is such an interesting character. Almost everyone on that show is at least a little crazy. Looks like I might be ordering Showtime before the next season starts.
