Happy holidays everyone :)

I say "happy holidays" cuz it's politically correct, as opposed to Merry Christmas. Hehe.

I'll keep this journal brief. My biggest Christmas gift was a Kindle. Yup. As an avid, old-fashioned reader I swore I would never touch one of those, and it wasn't even on my list, but Mom got it anyway. I was irked at first, but I'm reluctantly beginning to like this thing. I also got a ton of money from my dad, because he was too lazy to actually go out and buy shit for my sister and I. Guess who's gonna spend it all in one fell swoop? Me! I barely got anything that was on my list, but I'm not complaining.

My dad and I argued a lot last night and today, and he was a dick, but that's not news. His girlfriend's family came over and turned half of my Christmas into an awkward, obnoxious affair, but whatevs. I told him how I felt about spending Christmas with strangers and I said I had no interest in getting to know any of them. Then he called me a selfish brat and some other things. The guy NEVER listens to a word I say. He refuses to see anything from my perspective. He thinks he's always right because he's the adult, which drives me CRAZY.

Okay. Gotta stop before I rant too long about my dad. After the awkwardness things went better. I spent the other half of Christmas at my grandma's house, which is always nice. No homophobic comments. Lots of laughter with my cousins. My gifts were pretty lame though.

It's around this time of year that I always wish I was a little kid again. Christmas used to be so magical to me. Now it's just some holiday that comes and goes every year.

Kindles are great! You can

Kindles are great! You can get tons of classics for FREE (which is okay because the authors are dead anyway)

I know! I downloaded a bunch

I know! I downloaded a bunch of the classics. This Kindle is making me very happy. I wonder if Kindles make authors lose money. If that's the case, then I, as a future author, should hate these things.

I was at L's aunt's and this

I was at L's aunt's and this lady stopped by to exchange gifts and she goes "I hate it when people say happy holidays! It's the birth of our lord and savior jesus christ and it aught to be celebrated as such! She gave me a dirty look when I laughed at her.

I got a psp which is a lot of fun. And a mini fridge! Haha. I got a Nook at the beginning of the semester, and I was worried about it too, but it turns out it's actually pretty cool!

People like that lady make me chuckle because of their ignorance. Christmas isn't the ONLY holiday that happens this time of year.

I also have a PSP! But I hardly ever play it anymore. I'm not much of a gamer nowadays.

There seems to be this competition between Nooks and Kindles. Many people have told me that Kindles are better. I wonder what the difference is...?

I'm not really much of a gamer, but every once in a while is fun!

I really don't know what the difference is. I got a Nook because I got a discount on it through my college because we use Barnes and Noble. Otherwise I probably would have just gotten a Kindle.

Ugh...

You should remind them that the Christians actually didn't know when Jesus was born, but they stuck it on the same date as the rivalling pagan holiday of the winter solstice. :P It was never a Christian holiday to begin with...

They actually think he was born in like, March or something. Silly, eh?
