Merry Christmas, from Geeky Chiquitas!
We hope you guys are having a wonderful holiday. As I (Kimi) write this, I am sitting on my bed at home, snuggled under a blanket, and listening to the Under the Mistletoe playlist on Spotify, as occasionally a firework goes off (which is pretty weird since it's morning here). Meanwhile, Audrey and Beryl are off at Osaka, Japan, doing who knows what (I haven't had an update from them yet) but probably having fun, taking lots of selfies, slurping ramen, and building snowmen (is there snow in Japan right now??? I'm not sure).
Last night for Christmas Eve, we had dinner at my grandparents' place with some relatives. I've been complaining for the past few days that I can't seem to feel the Christmas vibes, no matter what I do or how hard I try. And now that it's finally Christmas, meh, still no holiday vibes. A few years back, Christmas was such a fun holiday and I remember all my cousins would be around at my grandparents' house, since it's our tradition to spend it there. This year, a lot of them have other plans with their family (ehem Beryl and Audrey are gone) so I'm stuck spending the Christmas with my own immediate family, plus a few of my cousins, who are all unfortunately toddlers - and while toddlers are cute, they are no use making conversation with and usually sleep early, so you get stuck doing nothing as you wait for the clock to strike midnight for Christmas day, which is basically what I did last night.
One bright spot of the night was that I got to eat good food (which was also pretty much a downer compared to the previous years of Christmas eve dinners, but meh oh well), spend time with family (as if I haven't had enough bonding with them already), and oh did I mention that I received presents? I didn't really expect to receive anything this year because I'm getting old, and the more you get older the less presents you get, but surprisingly I did get something last night! So to my relatives, thank you very much for indulging me with presents to open on Christmas eve because you know how much I like gifts and opening them. Here are the presents that I received this year:
Sweatpants from H&M
Not bad, huh?
Now, although I'm not really that Christmasy this year (I normally am huhu), I don't like to sound like a Grinch, so I'll just share with you guys my mental list of things I'm thankful for this holiday season, of which I spend most days going over them in my head to make myself feel good about the holidays (and by that it's no longer a mental list, since I'm writing them down on this blog post).
3. Christmas-y books
4. Doctor Who Christmas Special
5. My bed
I'll keep this list to 6, just because my favorite number is 6. LOL How about you? What are you thankful for this Christmas? No matter where you are or who you're with, I hope you're having an awesome Christmas Day!
Seasons greetings from Geeky Chiquitas! :)
