So in "sort of" enjoying the Christmas blog posts on my Google Reader, I had to try hard not to feel like the Grinch. Or pathetic. Take your pick.

And that's not to mention the wonderful company -- my dad-in-law put a bug in my ear about a horror script writing contest, and I had a good time playing "photo shoot" with my niece and her Polly Pocket dolls.

Pathetic Christmas? Not on your life! It was plain and quiet and exceedingly nice.
