Homer's Travels: Santa Was Good

Santa Was Good

[Update: I have fixed the video issues. It should work now. Enjoy!]

This turned out to be another weird Christmas for us. The dinner we had Saturday with the "J" and family felt like the real Christmas Dinner. When we got back from seeing "Juno", we decided to skip the "real" Christmas Dinner. The Wife cooked the Ham and we made some very satisfying ham sandwiches. Christmas is a holiday that should be shared with family and we haven't done that for the past three Christmases. No More! Next year we will be with family and we will celebrate it the right way.

The only thing that felt normal this year was the opening of the presents. This year we opened them on Christmas Eve.
The Wife got me a Tilley LT6B Breathable Nylon Hat, a Petzl Tikka XP Headlamp, a cool In-And-Out T-Shirt, a Dilbert calendar, and a gift card from Amazon.

From those chuckleheads, the Matron Of Honor and Best Man, I received a reindeer that poops candy and a butt bank that breaks wind when you put a coin in the butt's ... slot. What is their fixation with behinds? HA! Homer just barked at the noise and sniffed the slot.

Video has sound that may cause giggles, chortles, and perhaps a guffaw.

The parentals supplied both of us with cash which we will enjoy immensely (the list is forming in my head as I type).

Thank you to everyone for their gifts. We can't wait to do it in person next year.


  1. I give a little snicker every time I see a pooping reindeer. Tis silly fun.

  2. Hey, I can't see the video. Boohoo. I know, we sent you the gift, but would like to see the video. A big hehehehe to the post. Thanks for the presents. Love the bracelet! We love you guys.

  3. MoH: Hmmm I'm at work and they block youtube so I'll have to look at it when I get home. (Yes, I am posting to my blog from work - shame on me)

    We love you too! Can't wait to see you folks in February!

    JaG: I take it you can see the video. I'm glad I gave you a snicker. I hope it didn't hurt with your bad tooth and all.

  4. The video is dead but the step dad has a pooping reindeer so I've enjoyed it live. :)

    The darned tooth makes me have to be careful about how I laugh.

  5. JaG: Thanks. I'll have to check out the post when I get home.

  6. Heh. You're quite the film-maker!

    If we pass each other on the trails, we shall nod at each other knowingly and exchange Tilly Brag-Tags. :)

    Merry belated Christmas!

  7. GH: Yeah, I'm a veritable Francis Ford Crap-pola. Maybe I'll get an Oscar for best use of a finger.

    A tip of the chapeau to fellow hiker.

    Welcome home and Happy New Year!
