Christmustache Hangover

Posted By on December 27, 2009

Oh, hello there internet. I really didn’t plan to have such a long break in posting to this fine blog here, but well, life just got busy, as it is wont to do around this time of year. The good thing is everyone else is busy, so it isn’t like we’re missing out on much happening in each other’s lives. Plus, I am still a Twitteraholic and after watching 17 episodes of Intervention this weekend, I’m waiting to see the one on the intervention for the internet addict. Because that could be awesome!

Anyway, did you all have a nice Christmas holiday? Or for those of you who don’t celebrate, did you have a nice Friday? I had quite a busy weekend. On top of getting a nasty ice/sleet storm on Wednesday, I also spent the entire day on Christmas Eve baking. And I’m not talking about slice and bake cookies. I’m talking I made bread. HOME. MADE. BREAD. That you have to let rise and knead and roll and braid! And it was fantastic, if I do say so myself. (Even if braiding is one skill I NEVER GOT.)



Since most of you reading weren’t at our Christmas celebration, I’ll basically fill you in on the gist of it (and I’m sure my mom and aunt will back me up) – I got there early because my sister was only stopping by and I wanted to see her. So I started drinking way earlier than most people. I got wasted, told everyone how wasted I was, talked REALLY LOUD, patted myself on the back repeatedly for my awesome challah (HOLLA!) and then kept telling everyone how drunk I was. IT WAS THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER!

Seriously, though, it was actually really nice. There was no drama, the food was awesome (CHALLAH!) and the booze was plentiful. So it was a really nice day. Even better since I didn’t have to drive my mom and grandma anywhere (it was at their house) so I could afford to get wasted and just stay over night. That doesn’t usually happen.

I spent the rest of the weekend with my brother and his family, helping Noah and Skyler break in all their new toys. Since Auntie was too drunk to play with them on Christmas. I got to see all their new toys, their stocking stuffers and have Skyler pretty me up by putting hair glitter gel in my hair. Which I promptly forgot about until I was going to bed and wondered why my hair was crusty.

And we played plenty of Band Hero. Check out the video below. I think my niece is going to be a star! She already knows so many of the words to songs and she’s only four! Takes after her Auntie!

Here is Skyler singing some of the words to Taylor Swift’s Love Story, with my brother rocking out on drums. (And the dog barking like a crazy person in the background. Because she probably saw a piece of fuzz on the carpet.)

So tell me, fair readers, what have you been up to? How was your long weekend? What have I missed in your exciting lives? Since clearly NOTHING has been going on in mine.

  1. Skyler is so precious!

    Noah looks less than impressed with his sister’s performance. I was almost expecting him to Kanye her.

    The bread was awesome…you do not exaggerate. Even tasted great the next day.

    If you hadn’t kept saying how drunk you were, I don’t think people would have noticed it. Well, maybe if they looked in the garbage and saw the empty bottle of wine quite early in the day. Good times. I was soooo glad you stayed overnight.

    The Skyler video is adorable!!!!!

    Skyler is AWESOME. i wonder where she gets it from? And I had a totally boring week off of work and yes- I am blogging from work this morning. Unashamedly. And I’m glad you had such a wonderful Christmas. And i hope the hangover wasn’t TOO bad.

    Yes I can confirm that you were tipsy but I don’t think you were drunk drunk. Well maybe just a little. The bread was delicious! I wish I would have taken some home. You’ll have to make it again.
    This damn old computer of mine won’t play the video. Can you send it to me somehow?

    That bread looks absolutely amazing. And I don’t like twenty-ten either. It grates on my ears.
