Wow. I can't believe I haven't written in so long. My bad. I was overwhelmed by the holiday spirit, apparently.
Christmas was awesome, and Bonnie dutifully attended many, many family parties. I threw a couple myself, while here at Judy's, and had a marvelous time. I'm also constantly playing with my new digital camera, a gift from Santa. I know that my new camera is actually from Santa, because on Christmas Eve, my father left out milk and cookies, and of course, carrots for the reindeer. On Christmas morning, half the milk was gone, and big bites were taken out of the cookies and carrots. Amazing.
Last night was a Christmas Party with my cousins that started off horribly boring, and ended in several heated games of PIT, the greatest card game of all time. They made me shift out because I kept winning. What's that? It's like, that Michael Jordan keeps making those baskets. Let's take him out and put in a shitty player to lower the skill level in the game. Whatever.
Alex won the last game of PIT, practically jumping up and down on his chair, screaming , "PIT Motherfucker! PIT!"
Merry Christmas to you, too.
Tomorrow we leave for Italy, and I'm quite excited. I haven't been since I was 15 or 16, and I've been itching to go back. I have no idea how we'll entertain ourselves on New Year's, although I don't think that'll really be a problem. I'd be happy drunkenly dancing through the cobblestone streets of Florence, toasting my good fortune and thanking God for my wonderful family of friends.
With that, Spots has once again left the country...
