Merry Christmas Eve!

As predicted, I can't say I've done anything that screams "I HAVE TOTALLY GOT TO BLOG ABOUT THIS" since I've been home, but regardless, the past week has been a pretty fabulous start to my month-long Christmas Vacation. In summary:

-I watched all 13 episodes of Glee via an assorted collection of media streaming websites, and experienced 13 kinds of my own personal glee in the process. Maybe it's because I, too, was a complete theatre nerd in high school, or because I now have a whole new repertoire of shower songs, or because that guy who plays Finn is seriously dreamy, but Glee is some quality TV.

-I spent an afternoon with BT gallivanting through SoHo. After lunch at a hole-in-the-wall cafe, we zigged and we zagged through each block of Manhattan's chicest neighborhood, window shopping, people-watching, and trend-spotting. Speaking of trends, I made an impulse purchase of Madewell's "Ex-Boyfriend Jean." Ripped, rugged, and ready to hear Dad's "Why-the-heck-did-you-pay-for-jeans-that-are-ripped" commentary, they're awesome in the "these-are-so-not-me-but-I-still-love-them" kind of way.

-AC hosted her traditional Christmas bash, complete with baked brie, red velvet cake, Veuve Cliquot (compliments of ML), and a music mix of Mariah, Britney, Kelly, and all the other gals we've grown up with. The highlight of the evening was, by far, was the C family tree: fresh from a forest chop-down, it filled two-thirds of her living room.

Have a WONDERFUL Christmas! =)
