So This is Christmas  

Merry Belated Christmas! I planned on posting on Christmas Day, but it didn't exactly go as planned...

Anywho, Christmas was great! I love Christmas. I'm still such a little kid when this day comes around and apparently, that's in my genes. My dad woke me up at 7am to tell me that Santa had come and he wanted to open his presents. He was bored waiting for me. Oh, Dad. I got a ton of great stuff from the parental units, including Twin Peaks (which I can't wait to dive into), and a pair of Uggs (which I never though I would like, but my gosh, they are warm!). My dad got a little creative this year and bought my mom and me a Chia pet and a Clapper. Oh, Dad. 

Then, the rest of the family came over for our Christmas soup lunch and more presents opening. Team Soup (consisting of myself, Gracie, and Nae) reformulated for the third year in a row to eat a bowl of every single soup. So, we ate four bowls of soup (skipping the bread, of course). Holy moly, I was full after that. We also inducted new members into Team Soup: my mom and Lindz. We decided that next year we are going to have hazing for any new members and put a scoop of each soup into a bowl, mix it up, and make them eat it. We're still working out the logistics. 

Presents were great. I got the Gilmore Girls: Complete Series that I wanted from my Grandpa and his wife, so that was exciting! It's so pretty. I also finally got a Hello Kitty waffle iron that I have been wanting since I bought one for Lindz. Mom made a ton of waffles last night, so she has basically fed me for about a month when I take them back to Tucson with me. 

Oh, the most entertaining part of our Christmas was my grandpa's wife's "son." He's ten, and someone came up with the brilliant idea to buy him a cell phone. I mean, seriously, the kid is ten, what the hell is he going to do with a cell phone? Who the heck is he going to call? Anywho, I was outside helping my grandpa unload the presents from his car and the kid wanted to "subtely" let me know what he got for Christmas. This is his exact quote, I literally cannot make this up, folks; "Oh, my pants are soooo heavy...because of my new cell phone!" It was sad (because I'm not gonna lie, he's a bratty little sucker) and funny at the same time. We had a blast listening to his cell phone comments littered throughout the day. 

Then, my Christmas took a bit of a bad turn. We decided to go check out some Christmas lights around town in my dad's new truck (the fact that the truck is new is important for the end of this story). I was feeling fine all day, even though I didn't want to look at food for a week after lunch. So, once I got in the car, I started feeling really woozy. I never get car sick. Never. I was starting to think that something was wrong at this point. Then, when we started heading home, bam, it hit me. And, you guessed it, projectile vomiting all over my dad's car. Yep, that was a very lovely moment. Especially the 30 minute drive home. It was a real blast, lemme tell you. Extremely embarrassing, especially since I had felt great all day. Well, we finally figured out that I caught a bug. At first, Mom thought that maybe I drank too much sangria (which I  knew wasn't true. I only drank half of my glass and that was hours before we left to look at lights). Then, we heard that a ton of my neighbors were sick over Christmas too. We were all at a surprise party Sunday night for one of my neighbors, so that's where I picked it up. I was down all day yesterday, but I felt much better today. I am a little bummed about blowing my 5 year vomit streak, though.

So, other than the projectile vomiting, my Christmas was pretty tame.

Today, we were watching the Funniest Commercials on TBS and there was one for the Canadian hearing foundation, or something like that (that made the audiologist in me very happy). Anyway, funny parental dialogue that had me in stitches the rest of the night. The premise was the guy couldn't hear and was yelling a ton of personal stuff to his coworker while pouring his morning coffee. 

Mom (to my father, obviously not paying that much attention) Hey, that kind of sounds like us.
cue my father shooting me a bewildered look, and me giggling, attempting to picture one of my parents saying "I totally wrecked that chick"

Maybe you just had to be there.

We leave on Sunday for Disneyland. I literally can't wait (are you excited,

haha I saw your entry on my f0list and I was like OMG ELYSIA POSTED! But then I clicked on the LJ-CUT and I was like.. uhh NO I'm not reading that, but Danae told me all about it anyways and I have to say that that quite sucks. She was going into some details and although I never get sick, I was like OKAY THATS ENOUGH.

and of course I'm excited!!!!!! We're going to have a blast.

Heeeeeeeeeeee! I was totally mad last year because I got food poisoning and broke my streak. It's a funny thing to be proud of, huh?
