christmas / new years update, finally!

i can’t believe i haven’t done a christmas/new years update yet…
anyway, since that was somewhat a while ago, i’ll try and remember as best i can.
i flew in to atlanta on christmas eve. as much as i wanted to go, it was hard to leave LA. it was 80* here when i left. yeah, 80* on december 24. this place is perfect. anyway.
so i landed at hartsfield-jackson, all gross and tired from hauling luggage (i don’t trust checked baggage after what happened last time i flew to atlanta, grr) and i’m walking out of the terminal and i look up and erik is standing there with flowers πŸ˜€ pretty blue irises. awww. he’s awesome.
so then we drove over to his dennis and chang’s place for christmas dinner, i almost died from the dogs, we left, went home, cuddled, slept. woke up christmas morning (er, christmas afternoon, ha) and opened presents. he got me some very lovely, very sentimental gifts. slept some more.
then, like all good jews on christmas, we went to go see a movie and have chinese food. except my chicken wasn’t fully cooked, and i wound up
spending the entire night hugging the toilet thinking i was going to die. lovely.
the rest of the week was just us hanging out and going on “dates” and spending time together. it was wonderful. he surprised me one morning (i think maybe monday after christmas, don’t remember) i thought he had work and had slept through his alarm, and i woke up at 6am and was like omg you’re late for work! and he smiles and said that he didn’t have work, he took the day off so we could spend it together. he wound up fooling me twice with this little trick. sneaky monkey. + 2 brownie points!
new years was fun as hell. somehow i had convinced him a while back that we should throw a party, so we spent new years eve day running errands (yay for target after-christmas discount stuff!) and getting ready. i even baked cookies. AND i DIDN’T burn them! ha! we got all fancy dressed up and had some people over, nothing major just like 25, but it was pretty crazy. tons of food and alcohol. at one point eugene put on one of my thongs (over his jeans, thank god) and ran around with a cocktail weiner hanging out. uh. yeah. i’ll refrain from posting pics πŸ˜‰
needless to say, i had a very nice new years kiss.
so erik runs this online parts store, <–go buy stuff! that had gotten screwed up, and he asked me if i would basically redo all of the products and whatnot. he offered to pay me and i was like wtf you can’t pay me, i’m your girlfriend, you don’t *pay* girlfriends, you buy them pretty sparkly things instead! so he did πŸ™‚

that’s my “payment”. isn’t it gorgeous? diamonds and sapphire πŸ˜€
i came back to CA on the 3rd, trip from freakin hell. united’s computers were down system-wide… i was supposed to fly to chicago, then fly to LA, and land at midnight. well, after a three hour delay, i didn’t get home and asleep until 430am. then i had to wake up and go to work the next day. ouch.
other than that, things here have been good lately. my car is still running (shockingly enough). work is good. j is good. charles is coming to visit tonight. LA auto show sunday. things are somewhat slow but i definitly can’t complain.
