what I got for Christmas

Oh, right, as if you care!

Actually, I realized it's been a while since I've visitied the bloggie. Well, it IS the holidays, but then again I have practically NO social life...

That class is keeping me just busy enough, and I'm having fun with it. It's a large class, so there are actually 4 of us teachers. I've only ever done a class with 2 teachers, so while 2 is company, 3's a crowd, 4's a party! (According to Andy Warhol I think).

In the midst of that, the kids and Magnum are all off from school/work this week. Christmas was fun and now, I think we've sorted through all the stuff that we plan to keep and all the stuff that will be happily chucked out the door donated.

On Christmas eve, a guy answered a craigslist ad I had out there to sell Wolfgang's Guitar Hero II PS2 game and guitar. He showed up at the agreed upon time, and I went out to meet him in the driveway. Little did I know, it was a gift for his kids, who were in the car. The buyer pounced upon me and swiftly stuck the contraband in his hoodie while handing me a twenty. We've had good luck selling stuff on craigslist despite some of the bad press it gets. The pouncing didn't even come close to anything juicy.

Aside from video games, Magnum and I often get games for the family at Christmas. This year we got Scattergories per Wolfgang's favorable review. It's a good time. (A word of caution, however: If your required letter turns out to be a "P", the word "*enis" will probably come to mind for every category for that round, it happened, just sayin').

And now, we count down to the new year. We're planning on running our annual midnight mile once again despite a weather forecast of temperatures in the single digits - or maybe even negatives! Wolfgang was totally determined to do it topless this year, and I was actually going to join him in that (within reason).

Forget about it!

Guess I should keep my 82 degree weather here today to myself, huh?


I heart Craigslist, too - always had good results with it!

I really need to get on the Craig's List bandwagon. I got stuff to sell! I've just been too lazy to do anything about it thus far.

Scattergories is one of my FAVORITE games. Haven't played it in a long time. Apparently there's not enough noise or action for my family.

We love Scattergories! Happy new year :)

Who brings their kids along on the Christmas shopping expedition? Duh. Okay, maybe he didn't have a choice.

We got Scattergories, too! I wish I could think of some of the "imaginative" stuff my conniving 10 year old comes up with to give you an example.

My girls haven't thought of p-enis yet. Maybe I'll bring it up next time and gross them out. lol
