happyday

Belated Merry Christmas!

And happy Boxing Day!

One day, we started wondering what Boxing Day was, so we looked it up and found out (at least in some countries, originally) it was the day...see, because all the rich people would throw lavish parties on Christmas, they had a bunch of employees who worked a lot on that day, so they would get the day off after Christmas, and it was called Boxing Day. And I thought that was pretty neat, so I remembered it, and it's kind of appropriate in our situation, because we get our gifts on Christmas and then spend the day socializing and stuff, so we don't get to really play with our new toys until the day after, so...

Anyway, I was planning to type up a big entry about Christmas, but I'm feeling a little unwell right now (pretty sure it's circumstantial and not anything to do with germs), so I think that that will have to wait. But I will say that I have an adorable kitty on my lap, and that we saw the new Alvin and the Chipmunks movie. We loved it, and Kimee liked it, but Mom and Celeste didn't seem to care for it that much. Ah well. Is it just because we grew up watching cartoons about animals, so we don't need human stars? Eh, it's not really important, I guess.

Today I'm thankful for getting to see the awesome new chipmunk movie, getting some very lovely Christmas gifts, the song going well, having an adorable kitty, and toaster waffles.
