On Christmas Eve, after I published my Journal Entry #37, at 10p I called my sister on Facebook Video. Did you guys know they have that available for free? I never knew. It worked pretty well but of course, a little laggy as all video chats seems to be.
We opened our gifts together. I bought her Vegan “Ugg-Style” Boots and a nice comfy robe. She seemed to love them both except I think I should have gotten a different color for her boots…I got chocolate brown and she said she has been wearing all brown colors lately and I asked if she would have preferred beige and she said “yes”. She video chatted me again on Christmas day when she was with the whole family (it was nice to say Merry Christmas to all of my family members face-to-face) and she showed me that my dad’s wife also bought her boots! >:-( She got her black ones, though, so I bet she’ll wear those more than the pair I got her even though mine were much cuter! I wanted to get black or beige for her but I thought beige would get dirty too quickly and black was sold out. I’ll make a separate post about what she got me soon!
After, I chatted with my sister for a little over 30m, boyfriend and I decided we wanted to go to Albertson’s and get some snacks. We ended up getting milkshake supplies, cookies, 2 bags of chips, and a bag of jerky. I didn’t use dairy-free ice cream but I still used almond milk for milkshakes, lol. I paid for it later but hey, it was Christmas Eve!
We popped the cookies in the oven and boyfriend made us two milkshakes. I had a plain vanilla and Oreo. Boyfriend used the delicious strawberry cheesecake ice cream and added Oreos, YUM. (Pictured below: two different shots of my milkshake, lol.)
We burned our cookies again. I made a chipwich out of it to try to drown out the burnt taste but it wasn’t that good. We ended up throwing out the rest of the cookies. 😦
I don’t know how we keep burning them…we put them in for the shortest amount of time on the package and exactly the temp. it tells us to?
After we stuffed our faces with the snacks we bought, it was about time for boyfriend to open his gifts!!! I waited until exactly midnight and then shouted for him to open them.
I bought him socks, a mini-drone, and the full box set of Two Broke Girls. He loves that show and we searched for it on every streaming service and couldn’t find it so I bought the whole thing for him. He’s watching it now and always since he opened it, lol. I’m starting to love the show, too. It’s actually really funny!!
He loved the drone and it was working perfectly at first but when it was time to charge it, the charger USB thingy melted!!!! We are so upset. We might return the whole thing and ask for a new one or maybe just buy a new charger? I don’t know. I saw on some reviews for other drones that this happened but there were none about it on the one I chose…they said it could start fires so we have to be really careful and keep an eye on it while we charge it.
On Christmas day, we woke up and just hung out at home. Boyfriend made us the perfect dinner and we had to go to a casino to get our coffee because the nearest drive-thru Starbucks was closed for the holiday. We got our coffee and we came home, I made my Christmas Memories post, and then I got ready for work. Before work, we stopped for one drink together.
It was kind of busy at work but I got there around 11p and I decided to leave at not even 1a. I wanted sushi, you guys. I had gotten a few dances and one margarita at work, I probably shouldn’t have left but I wanted to make it to sushi on time.
The only place that was open their regular hours was Sushi Kaya. We got there around 1:30a and we finished eating at a little past 2a. They stop seating at 2:15a but stay open until 3a. We had been here once before but not to have AYCE. We stopped for a snack and ordered only two rolls. It was a long time ago, too, so we couldn’t even remember which ones we tried before. We ate so much, I thought I was going to explode. If you’re wondering if I have a sushi addiction…the answer is: DUH.
When we got home, we fell right asleep after smoking a blunt. Which probably isn’t so good for my stomach. I probably gained 5lbs from my two-day AYCE sushi binge. All that sticky rice is going to be hard to work off.
Today, we woke up a little past 1p…boyfriend left for work but he was scheduled as a host when he’s a server so he drove all the way there and decided to come home instead. I keep telling him to look for a new job since he just hates his and the manager treats him like shit. I don’t blame him for not wanting to go.
It’s easier on me when he stays home, too…we have no food in the kitchen so we had to get some. If he was at work; I would’ve had to walk somewhere for food and also I get to work a little earlier when he’s home…sometimes.
He came home…we watched a few episodes of Two Broke Girls then we went to get coffee, food, and weed. We came home and ate. I started typing this…now I should go get ready and get to work asap.
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!!! ❤
