Christmas time is here!

Time for joy and cheer…check out our Holiday Party pics and see how happy everyone was!

My girlfriend got me this gorgeous amethyst, diamond and platinum necklace . . . I am floored, it’s so incredibly beautiful. I’ve never gotten such an incredible piece of jewelry before as a present except when my grandmother died, and that doesn’t count. I just hope she liked the bedside water pitcher I got her too. If not, at least the big trip to the U.S., the New Year’s bash in Vegas, and the clothing shopping trip will help too. I also gave her some hardly-worn clothing I can’t fit into anymore as well, to which she’s already taken a great liking. The leather mini-skirt looks far better on her than it ever did on me. (She’ll get the other leather items over my dead body. :P)

One cup of cocoa, Grand Marnier and Amaretto later, I’m full of warm toasty Christmas cheer. I just can’t believe I have to work today!

At least there are three things that make it wonderful: (1) I’m taking my GF out for an incredible dinner tonight, replete with caviar and all the finishing touches. She’ll light up like a Christmas tree! (2) Work is bound to be slow, since most people are gone and I’ve finished all my deliverables for the year. (3) Christmas in Japan is known as a holiday for lovers, not for religious reverence (for obvious reasons.) At first I was a bit shocked that it wasn’t a family holiday, but the more I think about it, the more it feels like a more “true” modern Christmas spirit. At least everyone is in love, happy, and spreading the right cheer (and presents!) I keep finding reasons to be happy living here.

GF just said purple looks good on me, and she’s right. I’m off to prove to her how purple I can look in the dark in bed. =) Have a great holiday!
