The Haul

The holidays are coming to a close and the new year is quickly approaching.

Here’s the holiday haul:

  • Battlestar Gallactica Season 1
  • Battlestar Gallactica Season 2.0
  • Firefly: The Complete Series
  • $50 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble
  • 1 GB Flash Drive
  • 2006 Marvel Superheroes Calendar
  • Business Card Holder
  • Creative Zen Vision
  • Fullmetal Alchemist Manga Volume 4 w/ Alphonse Elric figurine
  • More to be added.

I was quite happy. I made my family sit down and watch the Battlestar Gallactica mini-series right after the ridiculously filling meal my mom made.

We had toasted ravioli for an appetizer with alfredo and red sauce for dipping. I ate too many before the meal but it was really good. Apparently they had clam dip as an appetizer to the appetizer before I got there, so when it came time for the meal, only my dad and I got seconds… and thirds. The main meal was a Chicken Buffet, which is basically just chicken and stuffing. Tasty.

For dessert my mom, set out this little dish with a flame under it. It turned out that it was a chocolate fondue for dipping. Set out next to the dish was all sorts of stuff to dip in the fondue; strawberries, banana, ‘Nilla wafers, biscuits, pretzel rods, and more. I took this as a personal challenge to envelope anything and everything I had to dip in the chocolate. I almost had a fallen soldier, but I was able to save the Nilla wafer from the dish with a weird dipping fork we were supposed to be using. Oops.

My dad maintains that we should combine the appetizers next year and make Clam Dip-oli.

…Yeah. Don’t ask me.

Happy Holidays and a safe new year!
