the pastime of eternity  
All I got for Christmas was ... A CHOCOLATE SHOE! It is beyond amazing: a milk chocolate stiletto with white chocolate polka dots. The saddest thing about this reality is the fact that I cannot wear my chocolate polka dot shoe (at least, not without it melting). I doubt I will ever eat it. It is far too pretty to die.

(Obviously I got many other things, most of them delightfully purple and sparkly, but they pale in comparison to my CHOCOLATE SHOE.)

We always spend Christmas Day with my extended family, as an exercise in purgatory. It tells you everything you would need or want to know about these people that we watched Breakfast on Pluto and the only one who laughed at 'If I weren't a transvestite terrorist, would you marry me?' was, in fact, me.

One day I shall tell you the tale of the neonatology professor and the Happy Birthday song and why I will in the goodness of time strangle him with his kidsize stethoscope. Suffice it to say for now that he used to make us draw mind maps - mind maps; oh, the inanity - to demonstrate when we knew we were 'thinking like doctors'. I left it blank every single time. He'd laugh now if he knew that it happened to me just yesterday, when my cousin got a nosebleed and my mind instantly clicked on to how I'd evaluate her clinically, while pinching her nose and trying not to contract frostbite from the ice pack. WHICH IS WHY I'LL NEVER TELL HIM.

But the point is, I think I'm going to be okay.

Hee, yes! I would never have expected it of my aunt.

I can see that coming in handy (unless that was sarcasm?). I often long for one of those little book stands for reading at meals.

And to you! Happy New Year, at this stage. :D

It seems I must, once I'm back on a connection made for humans and not, like, really slow ape creatures.

Or, or, I could get a really sharp knife and make it into a strappy sandal! (Yeah, I have not the technical skills, really.)

You too, hon!

It pretty much is! Although, I cannot vouch for the taste. :D
