Merry Christmas 2005

Tuesday, December 27th, 2005 · No Comments

This Christmas weekend was relaxing, long, and fun. We packed tons of stuff into the three-day weekend. On Christmas Eve we had a quiet dinner at home with my Dad, and watched March of the Penguins, which was an incredible documentary about the migrating, mating, and child rearing of the empire penguin in Antarctica.

On Christmas Day we headed to Poughquag for a family gathering and tons of good food. That night we played Scrabble and watched the Ben Affleck, James Gandolfini, and Christina Applegate classic Surviving Christmas. Jen got her first seven-letter, 50-point bonus word (BLUDGEON), and later, when I also ended up with both blanks, I repeated the feat with ZEALOTS. My Dad came close to a 50-point bonus with SQUEEZE. It was one of the most well-used boards with the highest number of long words I’ve seen in all my Scrabble days, so we took a picture (see last photo of Christmas album).

Yesterday we enjoyed the last of the three-day weekend with a bit of house cleaning, followed by a late lunch with Justin at Forno Toscano before a stop at Clancy’s and an evening of shooting the shit at Joe’s place.

Two years ago yesterday we were in the middle of our cross-country drive and staying the night in Amarillo, Texas, then in Little Rock two years ago today.
