the stockings were hung on the drywall with care

and of course, every 25-year-old boy needs a giant elephant figurine in his stocking. 
right? right.

in other christmas-themed news, last night robert & i went to the nutcracker for the 8th time together -- our annual christmas date. he first took me in seattle for our one year dating anniversary. and it's funny to remember that one, because the night before, i dropped a tv on my foot (i know) & broke a couple toes. before the show, he dropped me off in front of the theatre so i wouldn't have to walk far on crutches, and so there i was, waiting for him, in a miserably inadequate dress, in the rain. inside, the ushers insisted it would be easier if they put me in a wheelchair, so there was robbie, pushing me through the theatre with my wet, stringy hair, while i popped painkillers. it was pretty darn romantic and i mean that.

and speaking of seattle, we're going back tomorrow for christmas! hurrah, hurrah!
