It's Christmas Day replacement holiday today.

As per my request, Bee and I stayed in for the whole day to unwind.

And did my favourite thing to do - absolutely nothing!

Though instead of couping up in the bedroom, I stayed in the lounge with him all day.

Overfed ourselves with leftover Christmas ham and turkey as lunch. The nutty stuffing of the turkey is so yummy that it almost inspired me to cook my own next year!

Almost, I said.

If we were to entertain and have people over for Christmas lunch next year, I'll most likely require catering service. Haha.

Watched a few movies in the afternoon.

We finally watched The American. It's not at all what we had expected, but it's beautifully shot. The storyline is quite a cliché, but I appreciate George Clooney's unusually subdued and restrained performance. It's, all in all, very European and so very non-Hollywood.

On a different note, I think I'm slowly beginning to appreciate Bee's Klipsch speakers. I used to complain about how much they cost when we could have easily gotten a complete set of Japanese home theater system for half the price, but now I'm starting to see his point of view.

His request to upgrade them was knocked back immediately though. Tsk tsk tsk. Greed is such a dangerous thing, isn't it? He just got those speakers less than 6 months ago.

Contemplated on whether or not to do a little gardening in the evening, but eventually decided against it. Maybe tomorrow.


I think I might go lie down and enjoy the afternoon sun in the backyard.

Oh don't you love holidays.
