Merry Christmas!

And what a Christmas it was. Saturday night, after a wild day of kung fu and present buying, I returned to Massachusetts where I attended my sister’s hip dessert party. I met some wonderful people and was entertained by hilarious videos and equally hilarious British people.

Sunday I finished up my shopping (procrastination all around!) and spent some time with the family eating Chinese food, watching Spinal Tap, and going to midnight mass.

Christmas day was a surplus of merriment (and gifts!)

let’s talk gifts. There were definitely some highlights this year.

The Lunch Box of Legends
This thing is imposing. It instills fear into all who witness its storage capacity. In the words of an astute friend “Good God. You could feed yourself AND sander from that lunch box.” I have no doubts that I will be able to fit my entire lunch into this box every day. Even on fat days. Especially on fat days.

Rock Climbing Equipment
Mainly, a rope and a rope bag. These won’t arrive for a couple weeks, so the pictures are delayed.

I shall swing my mighty hammer

Asian Cookbook
Recipes from this book will likely be highlighted over the coming months in any “Mike D Eats” features.
Essentially delicious

Monogrammed Towels!
no description needed.

Other highlights included beautifully warm thick socks, oatmeals of many types, foodstuffs from everywhere, a few key tools, starbucks gift certificates, and much more!

Also, my dad got a new cappuccino machine that makes the most glorious coffee beverages you could ever taste. It’s making me wonder if I should consider it as a potential for kitchen appliance 2007.

Overall, Christmas was a great success. It was awesome to spend time with the family and exchange presents and joy.

    I think Tyler needs one of these gigantic lunchboxes…

    he’s like some sort of food black hole though, so i don’t think that even the legendary size of this one would suit him.

    Tyler should get this one.

    Interestingly, my legendary lunch box is the smallest in the series. Mine is the “Louie’s lunch box” the Karl and the one above (Tiny’s lunch box) are both considerably larger than mine.

    Congratulations. You cleaned up. My Christmas sucked comparatively. No nifty lunch boxes for me. I did get the Keith Urban CD I wanted but I actually got that before Christmas. Now that that’s over I get to dread my birthday and New Years.
