Kaano-ano ni Marco Sison at Joma Sison si Christmas Sison?
and I, over Y!M the other day:Lynn:
"How was yer christmas?"Me:
"Better than usual. I was happy."Lynn:
"I guess it's because I didn't want to be sad."
And it's true. There was a lot of drama everywhere, and I just didn't want to get myself caught up in any of it. I was lucky enough to be able to spend some time with the people closest to me. I was even able to get all of them presents, and I got a bunch of really wonderful things as well.
Oh, and the office annual office Christmas costume party was loads of fun:

(The theme was Disney characters. In fairness, I actually won a thousand-peso consolation prize for my costume, which I only made on the day itself, using a car seat cover for my breastplate.)
The whole family was in Laguna on Christmas Day, and I had this idea of taking all my cousins out for a movie. I don't know what I was thinking, as there were eight of us, with seven guys (my little sister, the youngest, is the only girl in the generation).
I ended up babysitting them for most of the rest of the afternoon, navigating through the jam-packed mall, trying not to get anyone lost, running around Time Zone, etc. I was so fricking exhausted at the end of the day. Sabi ko nga sa nanay ko pag-uwi, dinudugo ako sa kanila.
At least Icay
was really well-behaved. She just clung on to my hand the whole time, and quietly enjoyed the movie when we finally got to the theatre.
Just before the film started, she told me that she was cold. I put my arm around her, and I guess that's everything a boy needs to be happy on Christmas.
