Sorry for the light posting as of late, but the combination of being out-of-town for a couple of weeks during the Christmas season plus being in a food coma for most of December has made it really difficult for me to put on my humor hat.
And then after I got home from my trip, I was hit with the huge responsibility of saving the land of Hyrule from an attempted coup by some dude named Ganon; a so-called “gift” from my brother and his family. The politics are a little bit murky, but somehow Donald Trump, the Bilderbergers and a magical sword are involved.
So yeah–I’ve been busy.
Anyway, I’m back-ish for the time being and I’m going to do my best to update on a more regular basis, but as Hyrule is still in peril and I didn’t make a resolution to be less lazy, I can’t promise anything.
My trip to Indiana was pretty good although it was too long by half. I forgot that even though I took 10 days off for Christmas it doesn’t mean that anybody else did.
Because of this, the first half of my vacation involved a lot of sitting around watching Netflix on my laptop and knitting Christmas gifts (in an extremely masculine manner) while waiting for my friends to get off work so we could go do stuff.
There was a Christmas party or two to attend:
My aunt saw this pic and immediately jumped to the conclusion that I was seeing somebody. I had to explain to her that my friend was married and that standing next to a female in a picture in no way constituted a dating relationship.
Hunting with my little brother, AKA Getting up at the butt crack of dawn for the privilege of freezing your ass off in the woods for 3 hours looking at trees:
And karaoke night with a few of my friends:
After a busy Christmas day that started off at my brother’s house and ended playing Rummikub for a couple of hours with one of my grandmothers I was finally able to drive home the next day.
New Year’s Eve was a low-key, but fun affair spent at Smith Manor with some of my most favorite people. I wanted to go into 2012 looking awesome so I bought a pink tie.

I once again went kissless at midnight (34 years and counting!!!), but I DID manage to knock the mirror off my car while backing out of the driveway later that night so that was exciting. And no, I wasn’t impaired in the least. I just suck at driving in reverse; especially at night.
So that’s been my last couple of weeks.
Did you miss me?
