    Danes celebrate Christmas on the 24 so today is the big day. Kids are already running around like crazy and looking forward to the gift bonanza.

    Merry Christmas Eve, all you little elves! Don't forget to leave cookies out for Santa tonight!

    I am working a full day today. I already got in my 9 mile run though. Mom overdid on our Christmas gifts yesterday. *shakes head*

    I have one more small present to pick up this morning, gotta pick up some charcoal and brine the turkey. Should be an easy day. Snow predicted for tonight.


    Santa gets cookies and Scotch in our house.

    Lobster order placed with buddy, who's pulling traps this morning.
    Beer chilling, Yule logs rolled.
    Need to buy some charcoal on way to run dogs at beach.
    Some wrapping to be done but my biggest chore is maintaining a functional buzz throughout the day.
    Challenge accepted.

    Ugh. The joys of Christmas Eve were just sharted on when I learned that there is no second parking space available at our apartment complex after they promised one would be when we moved in. Given that the winter parking ban is now in effect, and the town does not make any accommodations in the public lots, I don't know WTF to do. Advice anyone?

    Woman child: "papa, it's almost christmas"
    Me: "yup"
    Woman child: "want to know what your presents are?"
    Me: "Su......."
    Woman child: "NOPE! Cant tell you! HAHAHAHAHAHA"

    TL;DR: Trolled by 4 year old.

    Morning.

    Day #3 of my five day weekend. So nice to not wake up to an alarm today. Need to start cleaning the house since we're having family over tonight and tomorrow morning.

    I get to hang out with the sober lame-oids. insanity will ensue, no doubt.

    girlfriends sister, her adult son/girlfriend, and various other folks.

    A certain FEAR song comes to mind....

    That will make me the asshole drunk uncle type. which I don't want to be.

    The girlfriend also wants to stay the night so we can wake up on christmas morning and do presents in the AM. Only, the 'kids' (20 something year olds) sleep in until noon. did I mention they live 20 minutes away? I'd rather sleep in my own bed, use my own bathroom and drink my own coffee on my own couch.

    Better than experiencing the insanity sober, IMO.

    Stand your ground, man...
