I don't think I've mentioned lately how glad I am that we have free trans-Pacific videophone, which lets you have your partner attend the annual winter holiday party remotely.|
(Well, once you remember to run back home and grab the laptop, anyway.)
I didn't cook anything this year; instead I took the boring support role and brought plates & napkins & cups. This involved me standing in the paper products aisle at the grocery store for far too long dithering over how many and what kind of plates to get. I have no idea why ti took me a full five minutes to decide. Tyranny of choice, I suppose.
Had a lovely time catching up with friends I don't get to see often enough. I was a bit low-key, probably because we stayed up really late last night watching Iron Man on DVD.
In less than a week, I will be in Japan. WOW!
