Well last week I was off for vacation, and I took another staycation, and lived like a hermit in my house. My enjoyment was lessened though, my roommate having training all week, so he was at home doing a class on-line. I am getting a bit stir crazy though being in Dallas all of the time. Next year I definitely want to get out of here. I haven't left the D/FW metroplex in 2 1/2 years, and I haven't left the state of Texas in 5 1/2 years. I already have tentative plans to attend STAPLE in Austin, TX in March. It is a one day comic book convention, but I hope to make a weekend of it down there, as I love Austin.
For Christmas, my step-brother is arriving tomorrow, and it should be just a small gathering at my dad's house with just four of us. My brother and his girlfriend aren't able to make it this year. I hope I can make time to visit some of my friends from the old neighborhood.
I hope everyone else has a good Christmas. Eat all ya want, you only live once.
