It’s that time again, kiddies. Time to bake ALL the cookies. 138 of them, to be exact (although it’s 137 now – we ate one). Not as many as last year, somehow. Did I bake bigger cookies? Or did John eat more batter? Anyway, the cookies are cooling, and two more sweet potato pies are in the oven. The toffee bark and peppermint bark get made tomorrow (they’re way easier – melt, mix, freeze, break into pieces).
We’ve determined that we are NOT going to the mall tomorrow. It would have been just for fun, anyway, since we’re done with the shopping, but why make the trip if we really don’t have to? No open house tomorrow (we’re taking the next couple of weeks off, although we’re available for showings, of course), so we don’t have to scramble to clean up or disappear. It’ll be great. We can sleep in, wrap some presents, leave the house if we feel like it… That works for me.
We watched Knights of Badassdom last night. Mom, you’ll hate it. Don’t bother. Same goes for you, Margaret. Everyone else who hangs out around here would probably enjoy it (if you haven’t already seen it – I’m looking at you, Randy. You’ve seen it, haven’t you?), silly as it is. Full disclosure – it’s about LARPing. And there go Mom and Margaret. Bye, guys! We still love you!
It was fun, and we liked it. Great review, right? That’s what they pay me for. Except for the paying part. And the “they” part. There’s no “they”.
