Merry Christmas!

Here are some cookies I made this year:

And here is a really BIG cookie.. or gingerbread house, to be specific. We went to see some Christmas lights, and these people decorated their house like this. Complete with plastic over the front lawn, for icing.

Wishing you a holiday that is happy and relaxing! :)

Fa la la la la la!

I popped into the eBay Christmas party at the Pan Pacific tonight, as it was wrapping up because a friend of a friend had an unused ticket. It was GREAT seeing the expression on people's faces, as it was two years ago I worked there.. saw about 20-30 happy faces I knew. Half of them no longer work there either.. I wonder what percentage of the attendees tonight actually work there now!

Got about 3/5ths of my Christmas shopping done today.

Holy crap.. the wind is so strong outside, I hear the beams of the house creaking and groaning.. I hope it doesn't topple over. :(

Mochi the Maltese

Today, my friend's gf and I took my friend's friend's dog Mochi, and went hiking at Lighthouse Park in West Van. It was a perfect length hike, with a bit of rain, which I prefer! We went with a local hiking group. Mochi, the dog, is this tiny white Maltese that looks like these:

It was the friendliest, most energetic dog out of all of them. Its legs were like three inches long and yet it jumped up stairs three times its height and tumbled down cliffs along with the big dogs. The only two times I heard it yelp was once, when someone stepped on its foot, and another time, when the biggest dog was playing too rough with it. Add the fact that the dog is hypo-allergenic and doesn't shed, and the result is that I really want a Maltese now!

In slightly related news, I also decided to jump back into soccer this weekend, at a local indoor sports arena. I played on one team that was incredibly good, almost a professional level, and then stuck around to play on another friend's team, which was not quite as good but still a higher level of play than I'm at right now. Needless to say, I'm sore but it feels soooo good.

"Pimp my Walnut"

"Oh my! Tis cold outside!"

"Guess I should hop in my roadster and crank the heat!"
