What a week.|
Gifts: For Christmas this year I decided to make my parents a DVD of our trip to South Padre Island in 1991. That means transferring the Hi-8 tapes to AVI, converting the AVI to DVD, designing menus and marking the chapters, and finally designing and printing DVD cover art. It's been hell, but I finally finished it this afternoon.
As for my siblings, I got my brother the rare "Reflections" by Iceberg Slim. It's a CD of spoken poems of 40s-pimp-turned-author Iceberg Slim, set to 70's quiet storm backing tracks. Right up Andrews alley. I didn't know what to get my sister, so I just got her a Tim and Eric DVD. My brother and I also went in together to buy a pair of cute Super Mario slippers for her girlfriend Jill, who has no family and has been annexed by ours.
Girls: I am seeing someone new and I'm very excited. She's so smart and pretty! I've been kind of slumming the past year (LOL) and was thinking "Is she out of my league?" She's really shy and hasn't ever had sex. It's been one of the weirdest courtships ever; I met her because she was semi-dating one of my friends, and was a little worried about stepping on his toes. He gave me his blessing and said he was no longer interested, but you know how that is.
We've been hanging out as friends since October, so it was little awkward trying to get closer. A couple nights she stayed at my apartment, drinking and watching youtube with me... waiting for me to make a move! Eventually we talked about it and admitted to really liking each other, so I finally made a move earlier tonight. Very positive reaction!
As she was leaving, I said "You've stayed the night at my apartment a few times, and I finally managed to get most of your clothes off. Do you think we're ready for our first date yet?"
I was going to write more, but it's 4am and I haven't slept much the past few days. Stress + diet piils = boxing websites and livejournal at 6am. Everyone have a happy and safe Christmas!
