Well it was pretty cold while I was back in MN and I can’t figure out why anyone would want to live there year round. But I was glad there was snow, I think the last time I came home for Christmas everything was brown & gross which I hate. If the weather is going to be shitty at least let there be white fluffy snow.
Our Christmas is always pretty pathetic but it’s even worse now that Grandpa is gone & Grandma doesn’t know who I am, which just leaves me & mom. Sad I know. So I went out with my BFF to all her big family Christmas parties on xmas eve. The majority of her family knows me so it’s not that weird and it meant I got to spend time with her and my other 2 siblings (her brother & sister) I never see anymore. Her little brother brought his boyfriend too so I finally got to meet him for the first time. Her little sister gave us all adderall and we got pretty baked before we went which was fun. haha. I did feel bad though that mom was at home alone but she told me to go, so I did.
We went to Benihana for Christmas dinner the next day which was fun, dinner & a show. 🙂
We don’t do much in the way of gifts anymore & my mom never really gets me what I ask for but I did get a new electric toothbrush, a ipod nano & new eyeglasses. My mom gave me a gift card from Grandma for $50 at walmart but I do still miss my $100 cash grandpa always gave.
The rest of my trip was just trying to meet up with people and catch up. I did go to a nice alumni meetup at my old college & we shut the bars down which was fun.
There were like 40 of us but my friends pic is creepy in BW.
I also got to drive a snowmobile for the first time. This seems strange that it took so long since I grew up MN but snowmobiles were a luxury we could never afford. It was fun & scary & a lot of hard work.
We also had quite the little party at a friends empty townhouse on New Years eve. 6 bottles of champagne, a couple cases of beer, lots of shots, 2 Ts & shenanigans.
Our friend who is a serious alcoholic was the first to pass out which has never happened before. she was fucked up, so I took a picture.
There was a lot of drinking & eating going on the entire time I was back but it was a lot of fun & I wish I could see them all more often. I just don’t understand why none of them are jumping at the bit to get out of MN and come visit CA.
