Christmas Gifts, 2003
It's been another busy week: family in town, Christmas Eve concert & midnight mass, Christmas, work, a bachelor party last night, etc, etc, and I don't really have much to say. But, since I haven't posted in a week, I feel a sort of obligation to do so. So I guess I'll just have to boast about what I got for Christmas.
Our parents and Hollie's grandparents went together to get a Sony Digital8 video camera for us; it takes still shots, too, so maybe we'll finally get around to updating our Yahoo! photo album, linked on the side. Hollie gave me a drill, a Glenfiddich gift set (with two nice Old Fashioned glasses), a small, black Book of Common Prayer (1979), and AUDIOSLAVE; my parents, in addition to the camera and help with recent car repairs*, gave a couple of N.T. Wright books: The New Testament and the People of God and The Lord and His Prayer; Hollie's parents, in addition to the camera, are giving us an upcoming, all-expenses-paid, family shopping trip to the Dallas area, and they also gave me a casual dress shirt and a pair of lounging pants; my sister, Jordan, gave me a big bottle of Bombay Sapphire in a cool wooden box; and my sisters-in-law gave me Jackie Brown on VHS.
So, yeah, I racked up, thanks to everyone above and to the incarnation and church tradition - Christ & His bride - to all of whom I'm most grateful.
* My motor mounts broke, and the loose engine punched a hole in the oil filter, causing a good leak; plus, we needed rotors & brakes.
