After our mission was completed, chichi and I went to the grocery store to acquire groceries for today's festivities. And then, to home.
Once home, I sat and giggled and bounced about what I had done, and then had a chat with a friend who was frumple because she didn't have a Christmas tree. She was supposed to have one. Her husband promised he'd get her one before he went out of town for the holidays, but didn't manage to do it, and the person he asked to do it on his behalf was sick. This was sad, as it was making her unhappy, and I didn't want her to be unhappy. So, at 8:00 on Christmas Eve, I ventured out into the world to find a tree for Nyarla.
I did manage to find one, without having to resort to larceny (I had found one lot which was closed, but had the trees laid out on the ground; I had pondered leaving money and a note in a Ziplock back taped to the door of their booth, but they didn't have any trees suitable to my needs, so I didn't have to make this decision). I went and fetched Nyarla at the office, and we went back to her place, where moyet appeared shortly after our arrival.
The three of us played with puppies (Pan and Biscuit, Zeus having gone to Detroit with huey), and then it was decided that food was in order. But where are three crazy geek chicks gonna go for food at 10PM on Christmas Eve? Why, the 24-hour Korean BBQ joint, of course!
Mmm. Good food, good fun, getting home just in time to meet the cleaning friend from last night who had forgotten her backpack here. Of course, falling asleep on the couch with the TV on landed me some weird dreams, but this is nothing new. :)
