073: I hate sundays

No, really.

I don’t own a car.  Nothing is open, except the grocers.  Not even the gym.

Sundays are the bane of my existence, here.

Here’s two things entirely lacking in creativity:

Day Zero Zero Five: Merry Christmas!

I’ve decided to do a fun little thing for Christmas this year.  I’ve taken a photo an hour (approximately) as a way to document my first Christmas in Canada away from my family.  We woke up at 7:00, and started opening gifts, and then we made breakfast and started prepping for the day.  For dinner, we headed over to my roommate’s parents house for a bit of a shindig.  With Turducken!

…and 22:30 and 23:30 are missing due to the blood:wine ratio in my body.  A Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
