I'm excited to actually get gifts. I opened my Nintendo DS the other night so my nephew and I could swap colors (I originally had red and he had teal...so we switched). I've been playing nearly non-stop because the lack of car makes it difficult to go anywhere, and my alternative is to play with the children (who are either playing their DS's or PS2, which is two player). So...Mario Kart and I have shared many intimate hours.
Late tonight, Fayanne and Brad are driving up from Central Illinois and tomorrow we'll have a big, nice dinner and gift-exchange and drinking and possible game-ing. Sweet.
Tonight, I'll be going to Nikki's for a tofu dinner (last I heard) and then at midnight, Allie and I will take her to a bar (possibly the Ram in Lincolnshire/Wheeling) for her 21st birthday drinks...I won't be able to help her celebrate tomorrow.
Saturday night, for those of you reading who are interested, Allie is having a New Year's shindig. It will most likely be low-key and mellow, with a bunch of alcohol. Let me know if you are interested. We want to get a good idea what the guest list will look like.
And to finish, a meme.
