So today is my first ever December 25th not spent with my family! For the mundane reason that we're celebrating tomorrow (and celebrating Hannukah not Christmas) but it's still been really strange.

This hasn't stopped me getting presents: I got some games off my steam wishlist from Cam, a "Taunting Frenchman from Monty Python and the Holy Grail" Funkopop doll and some caped Robin socks from my friend who always sends weird presents, my Steam keys from the GaymerX kickstarter (good timing on the rewards there :D) and a new chapter from the very fun Pride and Prejudice soulmate fic I'm following, with the satisfyingly accurate chapter title "In Which Mr Wickham Gets Punched In The Face".

I've enjoyed how restful it has been but also felt a little melancholy as night fell so have been watching the most Christmas-y thing on my Netflix queue: Rise of the Guardians. It's an irritatingly generic kids film so far so I'm not getting through it very quickly but I guess that just adds to the Christmas-y-ness.

Also I got inspired to make meat pies for some reason. They turned out really nice, and it's always good to make something conventional I don't normally get to eat. Even with the lowest fat ingredients I could manage it was still fatty enough to make me feel a bit gross but sometimes you gotta have fun.

Anyway, hope you are all having a fun December 25th, whatever that entails for you!
