I'm a little behind on a few things (I hope that's been understandable), so I didn't get a chance to post much here at Plan D around the end of 2011/beginning of 2012. It's time to play a little catch up.
I had an awesome Christmas.
Brenda and I have a Christmas tradition - we stay at home and enjoy spending time together. That's it. It's nothing big. No huge production. It's nice and quiet and, while I can't speak for Bren, it's a holiday I get to spend with my favorite person (and the cats and this year, we got to hang out with great friends via XBOX kinect, too).
Gift-wise, I found that I am truly lucky to have such caring friends and family. And while I appreciate things like the awesome movies, the "Grave Robbers from Outer Space" card game, the books and fun monster stuff, I was definitely touched by the sentiment behind the giving of these gifts more than anything else.
(Also, since Amazon failed to include any kind of note in the package including the Sugar Hill DVD, I just assumed it came from my mother . . . who was genuinely confused when I thanked her for the "blaxploitation zombie flick" she sent. We all realized later it came from my old friend Mike, and it makes a LOT more sense that he sent me that movie instead!)
I hope everyone out there had a safe and warm holiday season, received more than you deserved and saw the end of 2011 treating you well.
