Christmas was fun. I drove down to Natchez a week ago. Mother had a ton of food cooked and it was great. Then Brumfield, David, and I went to New Orleans for Wed/Thur to go shopping and stuff. It was a blast. Got to go back to Abita Springs so I am happy. On Friday I got new tires for my car. Turned out that my spare was totally shot so I am glad I never had a flat. For lunch my parents, David, and I went to the Castle and it was pretty good. Later we all went and watched Meet the Fockers. It was funny in a goofy way. I got everything I asked for for Christmas and a few surprises. Some of the stuff I got is the Wizard of Oz on DVD, a retro iron, cufflinks, a pump for my bike, and Paper Mario 2. Paper Mario is like crack, I have played it almost six hours so far and am just in chapter two. Sunday at church was strange because everybody my age is getting married, already married, or popping out kids. My Dad and I spent the afternoon under David's car replacing his leaky gas tank. It was all pretty much straightforward until we started putting stuff back together and the hardened nuts/bolts tack welded to the muffler would not come off. A little chiseling and it was all good. I got up pretty early Monday to drive back up to Starkvegas. My Mom had to cook me pancakes and bacon before I could leave and it was good. I made pretty good time coming back and avoided the perils of Lakeland Drive by going up to Canton and over on 16. When I stopped to get gas at the identity confused BP/Kangaroo gas station, the pump stopped by itself on exactly $17.00 and the tank was full. When I got back in the car my odometer was on 151000 and the trip odo was on 170.0. Something else that was nice, my 15 y/o car made 30mpg back from Canton even loaded down with all of my stuff.

Minnesota elector casts vote for John Edwards who was not even running for president. That is for all of the people who are certain that the "smart" states voted for Kerry!

So the face book is the wiki board on crack as according to Muncie. Anyway, best quote ever, from the group description of "Who Else Thinks Hotty Toddy Is the Gayest Chant In History?":

"Yeah...Hotty Toddy definitely sucks. Any school that has "flim-flam bim-bam, Ole Miss by D@mn," man they suck. Find a chant with some real words you homos. Ole Miss....what a gay school."

Had the best birthday ever. Up there with like the fourth grade where I got to have a bowling party. I played with my bike a good bit of the afternoon. It has been out in the rain far too long and was needing a good greasing. Emily came over and brought Mexican cheese dip and presents. She got me some Nivea stuff I had wanted and a neato shirt from Bannana Republic. My surprise was reservations to the Japanese place. We got our own room and I got to eat all kinds of raw stuff so it was wonderful. After a while we went to Old Venice to get something to quench our thirst. We went to watch Ocean's Twelve and it was freaking sold out more than 20 minutes before the show. So we sprung for I (heart) Huckabees. It started out with a nice Tourette Syndrom inspired monologue from Jason Schwartzman and went uphill from there. This movie had the hottest 50y/o redheaded French woman ever. I can say that because I am 23. After the movie we went to Kroger's for some stuff for Emily's mom. The most surreal place in the universe is a Kroger's at a quarter to midnight when you and your girlfriend are the only two customers in the store. You get to ponder why the red line on the floor is unbroken in front of the meat coolers, but its twin in front of the aisles randomly ends under a display across from the bacon...

Right now I have figured out that in all five years I have been doing these silly entries, I have never done one on December 10 which just happens to be the day on which I was born. So here it is. I have been the mighty 23 for less than an hour as of now and it feels just like 19 did, woo woo. Best thing is that I am one year closer to 25 and the almighty lowering of insurance rates that happens then. Even though my current insurance rates are like less than 40% of Emily's...

Yeah I was mean and got what my birthday surprise is out of Emily. It is awesome and completely unexpected so I think I will have fun. Way better than a freaking mint chocolate ice cream cake.

Turducken '04 was great Saturday night. I could not believe how much food was there and how little of it was left when we got done.

David is so lucky. He turned 21. On a Sunday. In a dry county. In Arkansas. Oh how we all feel envy for the mighty legal David!

Watched Christmas With the Kranks for free for WMSV's movie night. The jokes were way better than I expected so I recommend taking the lady out and watching it once for brownie points. Anything to avoid Bridget Jones. Emily and I rented Love Me If You Dare otherwise known as Jeux d'enfants. It was the first foreign language film that I have ever watched all of the way through. It had sweet visuals, but I feel like I missed a lot because I cannot speak French and had to spend the whole time reading. We rented 21 Grams too. Here is a summary: take a twisted murder mystery, divide it into 60 2-minute chunks, order them by a random number generator, and you are done. Anyway it is a pretty good story and it is neat to figure out little things as it goes along. The great thing is that even that this film is in English with mostly American actors, it was written and directed by two different Mexican men.
