Ho Ho Ho and a Bottle of , Wait, I mean Merry Christmas!...

For Christmas, I got two more seasons of one of my most favorite shows in the entire universe... Lost!!!!!! The more  I re-watch this series, the more obvious it becomes that they really did tell us the entire time those islanders were dead all along, but the creators just lied to us the whole time and said they weren't. But I'm not mad about it.

I spent two entire days watching seasons 3 and 4 in my pajamas, (with wine, opened by my new electric wine opener...you might have a problem when....) along with season one of American Horror Story which by now I can probably recite word for word, but at least my DVR can finally be cleared of this season once and for all!

I didn't miss much in the real world, as we were under a winter storm warning, no driving unless it was an emergency. A 4 mile trip to Starbucks for an emergency skinny peppermint mocha took me an hour and 10 minutes.

The downside to this hibernation is that my cheap 10 year old $20 walmart  DVD player was working overtime, and developed a horrible whirring noise, and wouldn't  play some of my DVD's that worked just fine on my laptop.

Now I am forced to move into the age of technology, and get a blue ray player. One with wifi of course, because if I'm going to spend the money on a new player, I want to also enjoy  netflix on the beautiful new TV as well! And, I deserve it!

But mark my words, I'm not buying blue ray discs! No way, no how! Not until DVD's are totally edged out like Beta was by VHS tapes. (remember beta? anyone?)

Mr. Magoo got a new toy which he is learning to like. The squeaker sounds different from his old toys, so he is pretty apprehensive about it.  He also got that handsome sweater from Santa.

What was your favorite gift this year?

Hold up - there was a driving ban?? Holy smokes! I didn't realize that. Thank goodness we were here in Kentucky and not in Ohio. Sounds awful. Except for the Starbucks part and the TV watching :)
