Winter Break!!



It's winter break!! WOOHOO! I was in much need of a break, and mine got sort of extended a week, since I was sick most of the last week of school. I swear, I've been sick more in the last three months than  in the last three years! I'm still sick, with what I don't know (my friends are all set on me having bronchitis) but now I've got these two weeks to rest!!! MWHAHAHAHHAH.
Our family decided that for Christmas, they wanted to do a cruise. On a boat. joy... I have a slight aversion to watercraft, no matter what the size really.  So this Christmas should be... interesting? Today, I must finish my Christmas shopping, and then REST.
Two weeks is a long time, and I think I'll get down to some writing in this period because I have barely written anything at all in the last like 3 months. Maybe I can post some of the creative pieces or something from my English journal. =D
Anyways, we have our Christmas tree, and according to tradition, we have named it. Last year it was Colonel Blimp, after the main character in one of my dad's favorite movies, The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp. I can't really remember what the year before was, but usually, they are after characters in movies or books or something like that.  This year, our beautiful tree (really, it is quite lovely) is named Mel a.k.a D.S Amelia Silver, one of the characters from the AMAZING, SENSATIONAL, SPECTACULAR, WONDERFUL, EXTRAORDINARY series from BBC, Waking the Dead. I love that show and I have wasted over 30 hours of my life watching it. What can I say, it's an obsession...
We only added one new ornament to our tree this year, a surfing Santa from Hotel Del Coronado.  None from India.
OH speaking of India, we are trying to figure out where to go with all the miles we earned from going to India. My vote goes to Spain, and then going to Morocco for a bit, to add two countries, and a continent.  But, like the little caption on our Christmas card (made by me, AHEM) who knows where we'll end up?

Sorry you're a bit sick. (I fought off a cold until the first day of Winter Break. Just an annoying bit of a head cold.) Enjoy the cruise. We're heading to Palm Springs area (and Joshua Tree) for a few days in the middle of our two weeks off.

Looking forward to seeing some of your writings hit this site.

Happy Holidays!

(Spain is nice, especially the very South. Travel on!)

Hey Molly. Merry Christmas. I have never, ever heard of a family going on a cruise for Christmas. Curious how that turns out. Post away, by the way.

Cheers,

SLC
