I know, I know, I haven't updated since Friday. I have a good excuse -- I haven't been online since Friday.

Sunday, Patty dropped off my birthday present -- a Ripley's Believe It Or Not book.

Sunday night, Mom, Dad, Linds, and I went to Midnight Mass. Before Mass started, the choir's pianist played a few Christmas carols. Then, for some unknown reason, she played Pachelbel's "Canon." While that is my favorite classical piece, I do not see it as being a Christmas tune. Unless you're talking about Trans-Siberian Orchestra's "Christmas Canon," but since this was instrumental, it was just "Canon." Now, if I were going to play a classical piece for Christmas Eve Mass, I would've practiced, and practiced, and practiced beforehand. For the most part, the pianist got it right, but I heard enough mistakes to convince me that she needed to practice more.

I might add that finally, everyone who bought me DVDs this year remembered to get me widescreen.

Christmas dinner last night was ... average for my family -- one major fight, some snipping, some laughs, and piles of torn wrapping paper.
