Last night, Daddy gave my brother the first volume of Jackass. (The rest of us were...somewhat surprised.)

This morning, Santa brought my youngest brother poker chips and a pack of trading cards. Mummy is a little afraid of what will happen when he tells his friends at school.

The country club buffet has excellent desserts. *___________________*

(I think we ate there because we aren't going on a trip this year due to lack of time. But I didn't like seafood, so some of the more expensive parts of the buffet didn't interest me. The cheeses were excellent.)

We went to a Chinese restraurant last night, where I realized, quite suddenly, that I really like duck. (I had insisted on ordering Peking Duck, which I've only had twice before, but remember liking.) It's a bit difficult to eat, but comes off the bone easily and is very tasty.

Of somewhat greater importance: mochi pounding at my dad's friend's house tomorrow. :D
rhyme: (obligatory Gaia icon)
Mom: So you bought a game cube, huh?
Val: I bought a PS2
Mom: What you mean, they told me you bought a game cube.
The Brain: Huh? We were just going shopping and-

*discussion ensues which establishes the fact that I was only buying games that weren't released stateside and that it is okay to get me US games because I can mooch of the boys and/or Sam...*

Val: As long as you didn't buy me Animal Crossing.
Mom: O___0;;; How did you know?

*some speculation about whether the fact that I look like I have lost weight correlates with the fact that I spent a couple of weeks being miserably sick*

The Brain: *leaving the room* Equivalent exchange.
Me: *yelling after him* Have you been watching FMA?
The Brain: No, I just like saying that
rhyme: (uninspired)
I've decided that I need an I am a consumer whore tag. I probably need an icon as well.

In explanation, I present the following anecdote: my high school Japanese teacher used to give participation points for voluntarily speaking to her in Japanese outside of the classroom. The result was a series of conversations that I still mentally refer to as "Micchan no Kaimono Nikki."

That said, I finally broke down and bought an ipod. (It's a blue ipod mini, hereby named "Raiel.") Blame the nano.

I've been spending a lot of time in the company of my mother these past few days. We've been shopping. A lot.

We've also watched "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" - twice. Once in the regular fashion and a second time with one of the commentary tracks. (The Terry track)

Tonight, we watched "My Big Fat Greek Wedding." Twice. We weren't expecting to, but the commentary was surprisingly decent.

I also saw a movie in theater two days in a row (Saturday and Sunday) but surprisingly, I was not accompanied by mother on either occasion.
