Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all of my friends. The past 5 years, I've spend Christmas Eve with Jon and his family in church. I always felt a little awkward being Jewish and being in church but had fun watching Jon's parents sing in the choir. And, when you are in a relationship, you support your partner's traditions full heartedly. This year, last night, my friend Nick came over.... we had a few drinks and ordered pizza... and watched Anastasia on TV and then watched an episode of Office that he had on DVD. It was a very different Christmas eve.

Today, I'm sitting on my bed, here in my new apartment... coffee brewing, tv on with cartoons playing, listening to my friend Dena's music, and hearing the rain fall outside. Again, very different from the last five years. For the last five years, I woke up at Jon's parent's house.... smelled a fire burning in the living room... and Jon's dad would be taking orders for big ole egg scrambles with everything you could imagine in it. Yum. We'd all sit there in our PJ's and chow down.

I miss that.

I miss them.

Later, I'm going to make my way down to Long Beach... in the rain. My brother Jon and his wife, Laura, are having a dinner that I've been invited to. It should be fun. Hopefully this rain will stop... it's kind of depressing.

Happy Chanukah, Jenn! There should be at least some Chinese food in your Christmas Day, it's a Jewish tradition!
