TBS is in the midst of 24 hours of A Christmas Story.

If you have never seen this movie, see it now. If you have seen it, see it again... :)


Xmas eve at the parent's house. Loki was mostly good - mostly. She did go after the cookie tray.

We got a bonzai tree. It's some sort of tea tree. But I don't think it'll make more than a couple cups...

I got a shirt that I don't understand. It's very soft (brand is "Velvetmen"). First bit of weirdness is that the sleeves go way too far - they cover half my fingers. Second bit of weirdness is that it's multilayered. I'm not entirely sure I understand it.

Linda got a bottle of Rakija. What is Rakija, you ask? It's a Balkan brandy, similar to grappa. My dad brought it back from Macedonia earlier this year. It's somewhat fierce, a drink that slaps you upside the head from the inside, then burns all the way down. I'm sure it is a cure for frostbite.

Tomorrow, more presents, then a massive cleaning and food prep, and then we shall Drink and be Merry.

But we shall avoid being Pippin.
