I celebrate Christmas myself and enjoyed a very special holiday (since I work today, I celebrated last night). My amazing roommates surprised me when I got home from the Grandparents' with my very own fiberoptic Christmas tree in my room. They made Christmas for me and thought of me even though they were so busy trying to get things set up for their little girl. I was touched. They had a little fountain going next to the tree with candles lit, it was quite romantic.
A surprise gift... I got the cat who came for Christmas. Not the book. An actual cat. He followed me home a little before midnight last night. Usually even friendly cats will wander off after following you ten paces. This guy trotted the whole block home like a little puppy and I just couldn't leave him out in the cold... So we're putting up posters, but if no one claims him (because though he looks like he was taken care of at least at some point, he looks as though he may have been abandoned), I think we're keeping him. I must be crazy, it's so impractical, BUT... he's SO sweet and he's already acting like he's at home. Gah... I'm such a softy. We're calling him London for now since he's all gray like fog. Merry Christmas... an accidental pet! ^_^
I hope everyone's holidays were as wonderful as mine turned out. It was lovely to see the Micechatters briefly yesterday afternoon as well! I've missed you all so much... *hugs all around*
