Last night, we had our first annual Friendmas. It wasn't planned... nor did anybody call it "Friendmas" aside from me. But, still, I'm officially making it an annual thing because it was so great and it actually put me in the holiday spirit. I love my friends.

Mary, Shalyn and I drove out to Brookline with bags of groceries and holiday-flavored beer. We all sat around a yule log on the TV and listened to Christmas music on Bryan's iPod (which feautured one terrible song that randomly had a techno beat start halfway through... that sounded like farts) and we ate kielbasa covered in brown sugar, brie with red pepper jelly in puff pastry (my favorite thing in the world) and A CHRISTMAS HAM with caesar salad, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole and crescent rolls (thank you, Marty and Trevor.) We had never, ever done anything like that. And by that I mean, we never, ever act like adults.

After hearing some terrible news that our good friend's mother passed away, we were in a pretty somber mood. So, it was nice to be with each other and appreciate each other's company... and good things in life. Like ham. And Trevor in a captain's hat. And fartmas music. And Don Rickle's memoir.
