yuletide greetings

Hey look, I finally brought up our tree from our locker today! It was a bit wrinkled-looking so I had to straighten the branches and reorganize the decorations. Then I added a few new ones I've accumulated recently and ta-daaa...good as new! And just in time...

Also, I forgot I still have Allison's Randolph-the-Edible-Reindeer replacement in my office! Last year, Allison gave me a candy cane reindeer with pipe cleaner antlers. Having Randolph staring at me all day was just too much, and I began eating him, a bit at a time. Allison and others were horrified at my cannibalism, and Allison gave me a NON-EDIBLE reindeer replacement, which I've kept in my office the year 'round. I'm going to hang him on our tree.

Went wandering through the underground mall for some extra stocking stuffers, and was surprised at how deserted the stores seemed.

Jeff and I are having dinner at home tonight (salmon and asparagus, yum), then it's off to start the familyvisitstuff beginning tomorrow. Not sure how much I'll be online between now and Sunday, so just in case...
