Ah Christmas-time. This week I did all those traditional things that make you feel all twinkly and filled with cheer. You know, attended a party where Die Hard was playing in the background, attended a menorah lighting ceremony, ate waay too many cookies, wrapped presents poorly, drank wassail, went to the liquor store, stayed up late watching movies with old friends, and of course made a gingerbread Tardis. Here are a few photos of those happenings.
My dad is super classy, picking his nose in my firetruck mittens.
Nick doesn't dress warmly enough
The humble beginnings of a Type G Tardis
Tardis Blue icing
These York Peppermint Patty pieces were perfect!
Made some stars to be the Time Vortex
These were lighthouses originally, but I shortened them and made them Daleks

Very proud (also, these are my 'Woodland Creature Eyes'
See, my mom does it too!
Tomorrow and Sunday will bring more fun traditions, food and lots of BBCAmerica on the television. But I don’t know what could top making my Gingerbread House and making the Tardis! Oh wait, my sister comes home tomorrow! 🙂 Hope your Christmas is as wonderful as mine!
This weekend it’s more of the same, mod podge and Wonder Woman and book pages! Why mess with success?
I can wear them!
Candleholder, yes it is about Batman..
Watching Leap Year. It’s so odd seeing actors who play some some of my favorite tv characters acting very unlike those characters. Sweet Dee not swearing? Ben Wyatt being super slick? Weird. Also, I was worried it wouldn’t pass the Bechdel test, but then Anna and an Irish woman talk about chicken. Before moving onto talking about men and marriage again…so whew! Still it’s a stinking cute movie.
Today it rained and Bonnie and I went to Michael’s. I found some neat boxes in the Impulse Buy Section and I’ve been cutting up old graphic novels/comics books sooooo…..
Classic Wonder Woman
Newer Wonder Woman
Not pictured, Yellow Ws on sides of case..
Bartlet got a bath today, he was not happy
But he *does* like to hang out under the Christmas tree with a treat, so I think he forgave us.
Like I mentioned earlier, I asked my mom to make me a Venn Pieagram instead of a birthday cake this year. And she did not disappoint! It was so much more amazing then I even expected. Below are a few pictures of the pie itself and the pie pan my parents modified to hold the pie(s)!
Cherry and Blueberry!
So, basically, it was an awesome Birthukkah!
