it is still Christmas! Merry Christmas
And I have packed up the tree.
As usual, Laurent and I followed our ‘worse than kids’ Christmas tradition (as mentioned in 2007 and 2008), we got up not long after midnight, and we opened all our presents. We went back to bed after the most important thing on the Christmas day - presents opening.
Some good news to report. We picked up the car yesterday afternoon from the repairer. According to the repairer, the cost was around $1500 (charge to the insurance company, AAMI). Although it is not a BMW, but it is insured, and we don't have to pay anything for it. AAMI even covered the taxi cost to the repairer.
Finally, we have access to a car.
As mentioned earlier, we did follow the Christmas tradition - opening the presents on Christmas after everybody gets up, as well as our own tradition - opening them at the earliest time possible. This means when we got up again today, there was a pile of packaging materials. After some cleaning of the packing material, I went ahead and started vacuum the floor, followed by removing the LED Christmas lights and disassambled the tree. Except a few presents laying on top of the coffee table, the living room is back to normal.
Laurent commented: “It is still Christmas, and you have put the tree away?”
At the time when I disassembled the tree, it never occurred to my head that Christmas is not over yet.
Well, just a bit information for Don, at tonight's Christmas party (in a friend's place) with 25-30 people, there were about 11 iPhones, I roughly counted. And as a matter of fact, iPhone was one of the topics. This proves that owning an iPhone does not mean 'rich' or anything.
Still, happy holidays to all, and drive carefully.
