Christmas cheer!

December 21, 2008

OK, so living in DC can be both a curse and a blessing. Sometimes I’m two seconds away from throwing in the towel and moving, then you see things like this. The Australian Embassy is right around the corner from our apartment, and while walking past it the other night Melissa and I saw the best light display I’ve seen in a while. It’s not massive, just clever. Hope you can see the red nose.

Merry Christmas Mate!

Meanwhile, back at the TARDIS, Melissa and I exchanged gifts early as we’re traveling to Nashvegas to spend Christmas with my mom. We decided to open pressies from her family and I have to point out the clever little bit from Mel’s mom. I’m a big Christmas Story fan, saw it in the theater as a kid, and have been trying to con Mel into getting a leg lamp for years- not gonna happen. Anyway, Mel’s mom knows I love hitting the mom-n-pop coffee shop around the corner and since they don’t do gift cards like Charbucks, she opted for the direct route. Cash. The delivery was my fave bit, as it had a little card that simply said “Coffee Cash”- sorry for the blurry photos, the caffeine has kicked in, besides I only draw in focus.

I cant put my arms down!

I can't put my arms down!

Hot damn! Im a coffee man!

Hot damn! I'm a coffee man!

Sah-weet!
