Christmas Oddities

Merry Christmas (or insert appropriate holiday here) to all you crazy kids out there. Hopefully everyone got what they wanted, whether it be material, spiritual, or emotional.

This Christmas certainly was an unusual one, even if you're only speaking about the temperature. I mean, 14 degrees (at the peak), what's up with that? I happen to have some photos for comparison taken three years apart of the same scene out my front door. One of them, you'll notice, is covered in snow. The other is being bathed in rain.

On top of that weirdness, my dad displayed a fantastic rejection of his conservative roots by giving me a book written by a lesbian muslim. I may be giving him too much credit; he didn't know she was a lesbian. I've read the first chapter and it's pretty good so far. Maybe I'll bookcross it after I'm finished.

I received a generous helping of the standard cookies, candies, and some leftover turkey to take home, but the gift I'm looking most forward to using is my Futureshop gift card ;)
