Christmas Eve and holiday preparations required a visit to Costco, for the official Christmas Eve pizza. Not to be confused with the official Christmas Day Pizza, which will come later.
I'm turning so Japanese, I can't eat pizza without hot sauce these days.
But Christmas Eve is mostly just laying about watching Christmas-y cartoons and videos. Thanks DVD! Thanks Internet!
Selected watchings included - Frosty the Snowman, Mickey's Christmas Carol, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Simpson's Christmas Special, Twas the Night Before Christmas, Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, The Grinch, Charlie Brown, and of course the Greatest Xmas Special of All Time - South Park's Jesus Versus Santa. Not to mention The Princess Bride, Bridget Jones Diary and When Harry Met Sally.
Man, that was a lot of TV.
And our Christmas-y soundtrack for our trip to and from Costco was a CD I threw together for myself and some English teachers at school. As I'm a man of class and distinction, it included a lot of Alvin and the Chipmunks. And Dean Martin, of course.
