Travel & Gifts
Hollie's parents generously gave us plane tickets for Christmas. So tomorrow we fly from Spokane to Seattle, where we spend Christmas Eve and wake up the next morning to fly to the good ole South. I've never flown on Christmas day. I'm curious to see whether the airports are busy.
We've already exchanged gifts with one another and my parents. Hollie gave me David Gray's A New Day at Midnight album, a Roget's International Thesaurus, and three (yes, three) nice coats. My sister, Jordan, gave me The Big Lebowski video - a film that I count as one my three vices - and the Allman Brothers' Eat a Peach (because the last couple times I had this album, I loaned it out, never to see it again). Among the gifts from my parents were a Liddell & Scott Greek-English Lexicon, The Tolkien Reader, and a wool cardigan sweater-vest. (I've been known for wearing cardigans and sweater-vests; now I have the super-duper combo.) Oh! and my family gave Ethan the Playskool Star Wars X-Wing set with Luke, R2, and Vader, so now we're sure to win our epic space battle with Duane and Bailey!
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
