What I should have spent Friday (Christmas Eve Eve) doing: Making out already late Christmas cards
What I actually spent Friday doing: Going on a run followed by a trip downtown with Mike while drinking far more decaf soy capaccinos than I would like to admit. I actually can’t remember how many times we stopped for coffee throughout the course of the day. I lost count once the number got larger than I could count on one hand. Just kidding. Maybe. 😉
Oh well… Christmas only comes once a year, right?
I don’t even really remember what we did downtown, because we didn’t buy anything. We browsed through a bunch of stores and checked on the fish in the big fishtank at Nordstroms to make sure they were still ok. Yup, they were. 🙂 The puffer fish is my favorite. He looks so friendly. 🙂
I was on the yahoo homepage yesterday and saw a link to an article about Seattle police pepper spraying some people at the Southcenter Mall. Apparently there were over 1,000 people waiting in line at the mall because a new type of Air Jordan shoe was supposed to come out on Friday, and the crowd started pushing and shoving. I read the article out of interest, mostly because Mike and I have been to that mall multiple times. No one was hurt, only 20 people were pepper-sprayed, and all but 50 people got their air Jordans. Apparently you should not mess with people in search of a remake of a classic Air Jordan. There’s more info about the incident here.
Yesterday was spent reading, relaxing, and (for Mike) working on his latest music track. See below. If he looks hard-core, that’s because he is. 🙂
I convinced him to stop long enough to take a couple pictures (Christmas seems like an appropriate time to take pictures).
Here’s round 1:
Last night Mike and I watched a Woody Allen film called Midnight in Paris. We thought it was a comedy (it was produced by Woody Allen and was starring Owen Wilson, after all), but despite a few dry comedic moments, it wasn’t a comedy at all. It was actually more of an introspective movie. I feel like there were definitely parts of it both Mike and I could relate to and of course I loved that it took place in France. 🙂
Today is our last day off of work before we head back tomorrow, but it’s been a very relaxing Christmas! We’re thinking about watching The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo tonight. It’s in Swedish with English subtitles. Has anyone else seen it and/or read the book? Is it worth seeing?
I hope everyone else had a relaxing and blessed Christmas! 🙂
