My Christmas.
California

I had a really great Christmas. Christmas Eve, my sister Kristine was in the mood to finish this video we had been working on for over 12 months. We only had to do five seconds. We started around one o'clock in the morning, and we really didn't get finished until around five o'clock. The finished product is totally worth it, though. The project: Buffy meets Kim Possible. It is going to be incredibly exciting once I make it available for download.

We watched our video for a longtime over and over again until about six o'clock when we decided to wake up the family members and make them open presents. Good times for everyone, except for my brother Kevin who started missing his girlfriend (currently in Marines boot camp) and started crying halfway through opening presents.

For me, the real meaning of Christmas is just enjoying the company of the people you love. The presents are also good, but not what I look forward to the most.

Anyway, my loot consisted of the following:

  • 13 Going on 30 from Kevin
  • Around the World In 80 Days (twice) from Santa and Kellie (which I later returned and got Alias season three)
  • Buffy season seven from KeriAnn and Kristine.
  • Care Bears: Tender Heart Tales from Katelynne.
  • Down with Love from Santa
  • Mean Girls from Kristine (I think)
  • Water Boy from Kurtis.
  • Where the Red Fern Grows from Katelynne.
  • You Got Served from Santa.
  • I got three karaoke CDs which I returned and used the money to buy Alias with.
  • Tru Calling on DVD from the grandparents.
  • An awesome backpack and some sheet protectors from the parents.
  • $65 gift certificate for the movies from Santa/parents.
  • Flaming hot cheetos, gummy worms, and mint kisses from Dawn and Jessica.

    After everyone finished unwrapping the presents, we all ended up watching Napoleon Dynamite, which I gave my brother Kurtis for Christmas. I was so tired that I slept through most of it. We also watched a lot of other movies including You Got Served, which is a great movie.

    I forget what happened the day after Christmas, but on the 27th, I went to Best Buy with my sister KeriAnn to return a DVD and exchange my VCR/DVD player which was pooping out. We had to park really close to this pickup truck (because he was parked really close to us) and also because if we didn't park close, I would not have been able to get out of the van because my ramp is on the side. As we went into the store, I was thinking to myself, "we should probably get his license plate number in case he tries to molest my car." But, we didn't. As we were standing in line for exchanges/returns, this nice couple approached us and asked us if we had a van parked outside, and if, when we had parked it, it had a broken mirror. Well, it didn't have a broken mirror before, but they told us they thought they knew who did it, and they wrote down the license plate number for us.

    We called the police to get a police report, and inspected the mirror after I exchanged by DVD player. It turns out that it wasn't even an accident. He didn't "accidentally" run into our mirror because we were parked too close. He got pissed at us, and yanked the mirror back. We know because his fingerprints were on the mirror and all smudged back with the yanking motion.

    We went to the police station, to do whatever because our city police guys are too busy solving other crimes to actually come and visit us. The police officer we talked with told us that it would be "really hard to prove who actually broke our mirror." Then, we were like, "Hello? Fingerprints?" And he was like, "Yeah, real police work isn't what you see on TV." The heck? Someone deliberately destroyed our property, which is a crime, last time I checked. But, recording the fingerprints is out of the question. I feel safe!

    Anyhow, it was really mean of that guy to wreck my van. Other than that, I have been really good. Except for I was really sad to hear about that tsunami. Those poor people! I'm donating money, but I wish I could do more.
