Oh what fun it is to have family over! 12/23

Ah Christmas, where I can belt out certain songs off the top of my lungs and…well…maybe get looked oddly at, where the Japanese worry about who’s dating who, and family come to visit! I have been dealing with my relatives since…Thanksgiving it seems like. However, I will only bore you with the events of the 23rd (intermediate family X-mas) and 24th (Extended family X-mas)

8:00 am: Stirring

8:15 am: Hears kids eating breakfast. Stays in bed to avoid them.

8:30 am: Breakfast is cereal. The company is step-brothers, brother and a slow step-nephew.

9:00 am: Breakfast dishes are finished. (Though dishes are not to bad with family around. One of the perks) Getting ready for a shower.

9:15 am: Done with shower. Everyone’s gone expect for Mom who promptly complains of the wet hair…

9:30 am: …again…

9:40 am: …and again…

10:00 am: Decides to hang out in room.

10:50 am: …expect to get mail.

11:13 am: Mail arrives. Wall Street Journal, Christmas Cards and text books for me and my brother.

11:35 am: When reading the Review section, family returns. Retreats to room with text-book.

12:40 pm: Lunch is served. Chili. After waiting for step-necies and nephews, takes a bowl.

12:55 pm: The only dish I have to wash is my own and the chili pot. YAY!

1:00 pm: Retreats to room to finish reading book.

1:40 pm: Decides to daydream.

2:30 pm: Very grateful no one goes into my room for anything.

3:30 pm: Hears necies and nephews starting up the Wii. Since I’m the game master around this household, I decide to help set things up.

3:35 pm: But is forced to watch.

4: 30 pm: Realizes if I acted like “yancey”, I would be kicked off.

4:35 pm: “carter” loses so I play as him. (With “yancey” ignoring my wish to change Mii’s)

4:40 pm: The real Carter is now very happy that I, the most experienced gamer, is playing as him.

5:00 pm: “Don’t pick ‘carter’! You”ll lose against her!” True. NO QUARTER TO CHILDREN WHO DARE TO FACE ME!

5:15 pm: “Jazzibell” (who faced and lost against me) goes onto win the game!

5:16 pm: Grandma’s over so Wii time’s over but food is just around the corner…

5:40 pm: Three plates. Beginning, middle and desert!

5:50 pm: Exchange time! My first gift is…a shirt. -_-

6:05 pm: Gift from Mom. The Book of Confidence. Genuinely is touched, since I’ve had a bad year.

6:30 pm: Gift card from step-sister. Presumes it’s for the car radio she asked for. (But I’m now making other plans for it)

6:50 pm: Bored now. Necies and nephews getting presents is getting old.

7:20 pm: …so much that the humorous incident of a nephew getting the same gift twice isn’t funny.

7:35 pm: Worse off, I gave my present, a gift card with a sound greeting card, myself.

7:50 pm: The last gift gets fanfare, a 3D target wolf.

8:00 pm: Retreats to bed.
