Giant Stuffed Cthulhu
Me with the present Jessica got me: A giant stuffed Cthulhu.
New Hemp Hat
I received a hemp hat from Fred for my birthday.
I received a cool Invader Zim bag as part of my birthday present. This was taken on my birthday, January 17, 2009, when I turned 31.
Benny and Katie were wrestling on my living room floor. It was so cute!
This is me with the gifts I received from Mikey.
Mikey and I ate my homemade cake on Christmas Day.
Tofu Fighting Shirt
I received this shirt as an early birthday present from Laura. I love it!
Holiday Gifts from Fred
It’s a crème brûlée kit!
I made the crème brûlée, and this is me caramelizing the sugar on the top.
Don’t they look yum-yum? Fred thought so!
This is Corey. He lived with my parents at the time, so of course he was there for the festivities.
My dad’s parents came to our house for a visit.
Dad was happy to see his folks.
Here we all are! On the left side, that’s Yuichi (the guy sister P was dating), my grandmother, me, sister Lindsay, sister Patricia, Dad, and my grandfather.
Later that night, there was a dinner. There’s Corey, Lindsay, Patricia, Yuichi, and Dad helping themselves.
We had Heather (who used to live with my parents) and her younger sister Sam there too, and on my other side is my mom’s ‘Net friend Bill.
Gotta get the whole table! There’s the backs of Yuichi’s and Dad’s heads, and then you see Heather, Sam, and me (with my mouth full embarrassingly).
Rare shot! Mom almost never sits down, but there she is!
Yuichi plays piano, you know. Nice pose, guys.
After the dinner, we all played a group game. Kind of a tradition in our house.
Here’s the first of many gift-opening shots. Mom and me.
