So, it’s Christmas day!  I didn’t get the moped I was hoping for (my parents tried, but the one they got for free from a friend just could have cost too much to fix up)  but I did get a new boombox, since mine had burned up in an unfortunate kitchen fire.  And, I got a really cool ephraim shirt that I wanted really bad.  It has a little pirate looking ship with an iceburg  on it and it says “formula for disaster” next to it.  I now have at least 4 things I actually like wearing in the winter.  Hooray.  I also got the equivelant of a half dollar (100 dollar bill that is) in a card from my aunt.  Plus a gift card to Target.  I know what I want!  It’s no fun to buy things that you need, instead of want, but you know, I guess that’s part of growing up!
