12 Days of Christmas: Day 8

This weekend was packed with Christmas cheer. Friday night was spent flitting between stores in SoHo doing a little Christmas shopping. New Yorkers: notice I said flitting, not pushing and shoving. SoHo stores are miraculously deserted at 9 p.m. on a Friday night, just fyi. Shopping was followed by making candy boxes while watching Jude Law do his best Mr. Napkinhead.

Saturday started with a quick breakfast gathering at our apartment before heading out to go Christmas caroling with some kiddos from the neighborhood. Feliz Navidad was the biggest hit, followed closely by Jingle Bells, Batman Smells (which was more of an improv performance on the part of a few pre-teen boys than part of the caroling). That night roommate Kaylie and I went to see our friend Penny sing her little heart out in a lovely Christmas choir concert. To top off the Christmas-y weekend, we strolled through some lights at Columbia, got a milkshake at the Seinfeld diner (not Christmas-y, but still worth mentioning), and darted through traffic to hear the organ at St. John the Divine, only to be kicked out - not exactly the Christmas spirit, Mr. Security Guard.

Anyway, let the Christmas continue with the eighth day of Christmas! On the eighth day of Christmas, my roommate gave to me...

pretty pens, to make my scribbles about cat food and frozen fish a little bit prettier. Well, the experience of the writing. I don't know that a pen will improve the content of my work. Thanks, Megan!
