That being said, I still managed to cram in some fun. I did the traditional (for me) visit to Vivian's parents house.
Viv says "I don't care how tired you are, you can't use my lap for a pillow, you, um, drool."
They put these out for snacking, I think they are the larva of giant fruit flies.
Using the Strengths Finder quiz, Viv found out one of her strengths was "Includer". Here she is trying unsuccessfully to include herself in this picture.
After dinner and gifts we played Cut Throat Solitaire, and amazingly I did not win, however there may have been some confusion about the rules by the winner of the game, so it could have been a tainted win.
We also did the "stocking" thing that is a tradition in Viv's family. I think it is growing on me, I enjoyed it this year. The meal was wonderful, as was the company, much thanks to Viv and her parents for having me over.
