I got Smackdown vs. Raw '08 from Abbra, by far my favourite gift this year :)
Tomorrow the family and I are going shopping for Boxing Day. I'm going to try if I can get Metalocolypes season one. Free up some space on my hard drive. lol.
I miss my family, but not for the obvious reasons. Christmas, like most holidays, has become just another day. I don't feel the same joy I did when I was younger, yet another step towards turning toward my dad.
There is only one reason I want to be "home for the holidays" and that is straight up, food. No, not Christmas dinner. That seems to be the same everywhere you go. I'm talking breakfast. Eggs (fried, with runny yoke), Hash browns, toast, and bacon. As far as the motherfucking eye can see... That is what I missed. Mind you, the sausage here was good, but everything else was a little lack lustre. Not a big fan of pancakes.
As normal I have an unusual sense of dread about my house getting broken into, and having my shit stolen. It has been a fear of mine ever since I can remember. Maybe my bike getting stolen at a young age did it... Yeah.... check this out. It was in the carport, with my mom's AND my sisters bike over top of it. Only mine was stolen. What a bitch eh? Oh well. Live and learn.
I have recently acquired a taste for ginger bread. I use to hate it, now I can't get enough. It would go really good with a nice hot cup of coffee. Double, double, with a hint of French vanilla, or better yet, hazel nut. Shit... I sound like Maine. lol.
I got the kithkin starter deck, and its pretty bad ass. I cannibalized it into my deck. It was my second favourite gift. Still have my family's gifts too, haven't gotten them yet, but I will on the 27th.
The kids got us all up just after seven, did the present thing, then I went to sleep when it was all said and done about 10. Then woke up at 1. For some reason I couldn't get much sleep last night. I don't understand why. But, I don't understand have the shit I do anyways.
5 reasons Christmas in Kelowna was awesome:
5: I like hanging out with James. Abbra's step dad is a lot like myself. It’s a shame he lives so far away. He would get along with all my friends. I hope I hold onto my geekness like he did when I have kids.
4: More cookies then anyone persona could eat. I mean DAMN! It’s like living in a goddamn gingerbread house!
3: Read my lips HOME. MADE. RUM. BALLS. Yeah, that’s right! They burn going down. It’s like someone rolled up best things in the world so I can consume them!
2: They have a Wii. I brought my game with me. I can play it. :)
1: It's nice to see Abbra happy. And in the end, that’s really the only thing that matters.
5 reasons Christmas in Kelowna was balls:
5: Very little time alone. The Kids keep us busy. All the time
4: Christmas morning breakfast. I'm sorry... I miss my hash browns... but I will have to ask where they got the sausage.
3: Realizing that, as a kid, I also struggled way too hard to be cool in the eyes of those older then me.
2: Been stuck in the house most of the time we've been here. I wouldn't mind going for a walk or exploring Kelowna, even if there is nothing amazing to see.
1: Alex's whistling. He can't actually whistle. But what he can do is this ear piercing hiss that has been driving me FUCKING NUTS for the past 4 days. I've asked him to stop and he does for a little bit, but then forgets and we're right back to the pain.
But all and all, I'm glad I came up here with Abbra. The true Christmas is being with those you love. So, I have had a very fulfilling Christmas.

You Are A:
Lawful Good Human Sorcerer (3rd Level)
Lawful Good- A lawful good character acts as a good person is expected or required to act. He combines a commitment to oppose evil with the discipline to fight relentlessly. He tells the truth, keeps his word, helps those in need, and speaks out against injustice. A lawful good character hates to see the guilty go unpunished. Lawful good is the best alignment you can be because it combines honor and compassion. However, lawful good can be a dangerous alignment because it restricts freedom and criminalizes self-interest.
Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.
Sorcerers- Sorcerers are arcane spellcasters who manipulate magic energy with imagination and talent rather than studious discipline. They have no books, no mentors, no theories just raw power that they direct at will. Sorcerers know fewer spells than wizards do and acquire them more slowly, but they can cast individual spells more often and have no need to prepare their incantations ahead of time. Also unlike wizards, sorcerers cannot specialize in a school of magic. Since sorcerers gain their powers without undergoing the years of rigorous study that wizards go through, they have more time to learn fighting skills and are proficient with simple weapons. Charisma is very important for sorcerers; the higher their value in this ability, the higher the spell level they can cast.
WTF?!?!?!?!?!?! I'm fucking Bunson Burner?! And Lawful?! There is something seriously wrong.... mind you, They got the stats pretty well.
Well, I'm attempting to download WoW again... I hope I don't come upon that fucken error again. Its starting to annoy the shit out of me. Anyways, I'm downloading some patches, then I'm going to load the expansion, then I'm going to load yet more patches... I hope it’s worth it.
I built a few new decks Black Goblin, White Kithkin, and Red Elemental. They are balls/decent/untested respectively. I wish I knew more people who played. And I mean at all. None of my friends play. I miss Ridge for this reason. At least I could have gone to the store (Let the Games Begin) and get a game or two. Oh well.
Abbra is still out with her friend, and hasn't been answering her phone. I'm a little worried, but I really shouldn't be. Abbra's a big girl and can take care of herself. She is strong and independent; I would just like to know she was ok.
I work a 12 hour tomorrow... I fucking hate work.
I'm almost done "With a Tangled Skein" by Piers Anthony. Good book. I suggest the Incarnation of Immortality series. I can't wait until the next book. War is bad ass.
I'm listening to the Canucks playing
I watched the Jack Black/Kyle Gas commentary for The Pick of Destiny. I blame

When I was at Ages 3 and up, I found, to my shagrim, that they had no boosters from the latest set. Which made me sad. But, they did have singles, so I got some staples for a Kithkin deck. It worked pretty well. It went 2-1 against Abbra's Cats, which for some reason I can't beat on a consistent level.
I should be catching the 7:03 bus, but since no one shows up 15 minutes early, and I'll be thrown into station anyways because my boss dosn't like me, I'm not going to bother showing up early. They can all suck my ass. Well... management can anyways.
Friday night is Christmas for Abbra and I. I hope she likes what I got her, and I'm sure she will. She'll have to wait until we get back for her big gift, as it is at my parents, and too big to take on the bus.
Well, thats it for now.

My Christmas shopping it largely over. I got everything for Abbra, but have learned others are getting me stuff. Hmm.... what to get a guy who owns a store based on this he likes....
I'm at my parents at the moment. The talk with my dad went well. And I had/currently having the most succulent roast beef I have ever had. I just have one more stop and I'll be heading home to Abbra.
Speaking of which, I am very proud of Abbra. In today’s working environment, the little guy always gets shit on. "Want a raise?! No! Time off? Sure... wait No! HAHAHAHAHA! EVIL!" And most people sigh, and continue on in there crappy lives. It takes a dedicated person to stand up for their rights, and not simply except the shit others try to dump on them. The fact Abbra was strong enough to give the finger to the establishment is on of the many reason I love and respect her. She is her own person, not a mindless automaton.
I work an 11-7 shift today, so that kinda sucks, buts its alright. I'm going to my moms after work to talk to my dad/possible employer about my position. And My mom is helping me with getting a christmas gift for Abbra.
I got 2 glorious days off (tomorrow and the next day) so if anyone is doing anything, and they need some Greatness, let me know. I'm more then happy to add a sprinkling of Pimp to the mix.
I'm requesting..... no, I'm telling work I'm taking sat Dec 22 to wed Dec 26 off. If they don't like it they can fire and suck my ass. besides, I can use a few extra days off.
I know there are spelling mistakes, but I'm in a hurry so they can stay.
