Oh, christ. Sorry I haven't updated in so long. So many things going on.
For Christmas, or at least a semblance of it, we went to Florida where it was cold, wet, windy, and generally gross. When I went outside (almost never) we practically had to walk sideways. It was AWFUL. However, Christmas day was okay. We woke up early and my parents got me some gift cards and CDs, some clothes, and five manga books (Let Dai 2, Loveless 2, and 4, 5, and 6 of Ouran High School Host Club) even though my father absolutely loathes them because he thinks all mangas are gay- literally. Anyway, the crowning gift was an 80 GB iPod WOOYAY! Except I can only download about 1/3 of my music because my computer's a disgusting little hybrid cockroach worm baby. Nasty thing.
Since I had to spend the Christ-celebratory week with the evil side of my family- my father's side- I tried to avoid them as much as possible, only spending time with my non-senile, understanding uncle. He's gay, he's hiding it from the family (including me but he doesn't know that, obviously), and he's extremely Italian. Not such good things to be and do all at once but whatever. We played a lot of air hockey together. It was rawther fun. And since the rest of my family (mother and father's sides) both gave me lots of cash, we went on a shopping trip. I got several more mangas and Lullaby by Chuck Palahniuk. I also bought myself a pinstripe suit, some baggy pants, and two t-shirts. Uncle also got me two sets of footwear- a pair of slippers and these lovely skateboarding shoes that I'm wearing right now (so comfortable!) And tomorrow we're shopping MORE! Yay shopping week!
Last night- New Year's Eve- I stayed over at Seline's house. We watched the ball drop at Time's Square, set off fireworks, and did the famous Midnight Kiss. We did it very convincingly, apparently, because afterwards her parents wouldn't look at either of us straight in the eye. Bah! Homophobic crabs, the lot of them! By the way, my New Year's Resolutions were to:
1. Survive the new play I'm doing without my head exploding.
2. Sex up T.
3. Write the first gay epic.
4. Read The Picture of Dorian Gray without falling asleep.
5. Try to not get expelled (ie, do better with grades, don't hit people, etc.)
and 6. Discover thousands more new bands.
Today a bunch of my friends and I went to go see The Pursuit of Happyness. Which was so fucking depressing I could barely stand it but it had a smiley ending. We also rented Little Miss Sunshine, coached a man through getting a tattoo for the first time, and nearly got mauled by Evie's ex's mom (remember? bondage!time? We actually put the box on her door. Very amusing.) Good times, good times.
