I got my first Hanukah present of the year! It was in a giant box from my pals in Portland (that's Oregon not Maine). I sifted through a butt load of styrofoam peanuts which were not very "green" although these friends will probably receive them back (Recycle! Reuse!). In the giant box was a star-shaped box. It had 8 compartments where presents can be stashed. Oh my gosh. It's an advent Hanukah box!
Now, I know I'm supposed to wait for each day but of course I opened them up. What did I find? Mostly little bottles of liquor and cat toys. What a statement on my life, nu? If it wasn't so funny, I'd cry. No, no. I am very appreciative and I know these friends will probably not read this blog so I don't have to watch my words. It was a fun present (and there were other non-alcohol non-cat-related items).
Hanukah starts next Sunday. Get out your candles for the yearly fear of burning down the house -- by the over excited cats and the drunk owner.
