a man and his dog


murph and i had an excellent Christmas. woke up at noon and had breakfast with the family: scrambled eggs, sausage, and gramma jean's famous coffee cake. it was so good and i ate so much so quickly that i had my famous tummy ache. after that we opened presents, which turned out to be a more stellar experience than i had expected. i got two books, one of which i already owned. i also got a dish towel, camo sheets, a gift certificate to Wendy's, and a trip to the netherlands. A TRIP. TO THE NETHERLANDS. I LOVE. WHEN. PEOPLE. TYPE. LIKE. THIS. SO. I. AM. GOING. TO. DO. IT. TOO.

after presents, i countered terror on my xbox with my little brother Andy™, and then we piled into the car and went to the theater to see Invictus. it was good, though a little long (that's what she said), and upon returning home i played outside with murphy. it turns out that his lack of intelligence combined with his willingness to try new things and his inability to sense danger allowed us to have a good time in the 20 inches of snow that is currently sitting on top of my parents' mountainous backyard.

I had no idea that Andy was trademarked. I'm glad you noted that that is in fact what she said. And, a trip to the Netherlands? That is a stellar experience.
