So we FINALLY got the evite for Christmas Eve at Nick's aunt's house.(We had been wondering who would host -- her or her daughter.) In it, she dictates that for the "nice" gift exchange (as opposed to white elephant), NO GIFT CARDS. Um, too late. The gift is supposed to be $15-$20, I spent $25 and did the same thing last year (gift card to Caribou, a Starbucks-like Minnesota coffee chain), and people fought over it (nicely). What else am I supposed to get for a group gift grab where I don't know who wants what?
She also added to bring housewarming gifts/essentials for Nick's brother's new home (she listed stuff like kleenex, aluminum foil, etc.).
I told NIck that I'll choose my own gift, tyvm, and he'll get it when he finally moves out of his parents' basement (he's been there for over 3 years now, and has bought a house, but we've seen no signs of him actually MOVING).
I've gotten movie tickets with dinner gift card for that type of grab bag, a really nice electric blanket, and a host of other things but our limit is $80. So much easier to work with, especially since you don't want to get a "female" or a "male" gift. It's in place of giving a gift to all the adults. We play a game and can steal from each other, etc.

I think you did good.

That's exactly what he was doing.

I'm glad I never told him about my huge crush on Drew Carey.

I googled to check the date, and it said the ceremony is in LA this time.

"Scheduled for Thursday, April 18, 2013, the 28th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles. This marks the first time since 1993 that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held on the West Coast. The ceremony will again be open to the public, as it was in 2009 and 2012 in Cleveland."

Aw, I would have liked to have gone to Cleveland to see the hall of fame!

As much as I like Heart, I am on an unofficial boycott of the R&R Hall of Fame and everything associated with it until they see the (major) error of their ways and induct RUSH, as they should have done a LONG TIME AGO!

Last night, a grandfather woke up when he heard a noise. It wasn't even 11 p.m. He went downstairs with his gun, looked out the window and saw a figure outside by his back door. He shot twice, critically wounding the person.

It was the 16yo granddaughter who lives with them. She was home when they went to bed.

Dude, you have a teenager living in your house who snuck out after you and grandma went to bed at 8 p.m. WTF were you thinking?

***

As to the case I told you guys about where the guy laid inwait for the thieves: One guy at work today pointed out that since the guy had guns and ammo stolen the previous month, it's reasonable that he would expect the thieves to return... armed. Granted, he went overboard and he'll die in prison, but even my anti-gun-culture coworker figured, when you force your way illegally into someone else's home, you've signed your own death warrant, especially in a state with such a high rate of gun ownership and guns in the home.

Lovely. The mall I worked at for over a decade had a nut job shoot the place up a couple hours ago.
They've closed the mall and are looking for people who might still be hiding out. Shooter is dead, one injured and two dead aside from the shooter.
Happened just a few doors away from where I worked, all three stores are/were grouped around that one.
SO glad I wasn't working there tonight!

That's exactly how I feel.

And contrary to how Sam feels, it doesn't make you a pussay to not make it a fair fight, when someone breaks into your home. You don't get extra points for making it a duel ... standing back to back, walking ten paces ... turning and shooting ... to see who wins ... with a burglar who breaks into your home. Making it a fair fight or taking unnecessary risks just makes one dumb, IMO.
