Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

A very happy Christmas to all of you, where ever you are! We are back at work after taking Friday off in celebration of a lovely holiday. I have to say, as much as I've always hated the commercialism of the Christmas season in America, there has been a small piece of me that's craved a big line to see Santa in a crowded sweaty mall, emails begging me to remember the "true" meaning of Christmas, and cheesy dress-up parties and vintage grandma Christmas sweaters. Don't get me wrong, Taiwan definitely makes an attempt at gaining a hold of the commercialized spirit, but it just isn't quite up to the standards of the grandiose US of A.

Alright, I'll get off my little soapbox. We celebrated Christmas by celebrating America by making our favorite American food for breakfast: burritos. Mmmm...nothing says, I love my country like a big burrito filled with Costco salsa. I attempted to make cinnamon rolls but their mood like mine and went a little flat on Christmas day, but everyone still graciously ate them. We watched the Survivor finale and fought like family about whether Russell should have won or if Natalie really did woo people with her subtle social efforts.

And then we went to Ikea. I don't really want to talk about this. Let's just say, my curtains didn't quite fit, and Aaron and I aren't allowed to shop together at Ikea anymore. Our dinner was delicious. And now I have earned myself another trip to Ikea to take the curtains back. I'll say it, just for you Aaron-you were right, I should have measured first. Savor those words, man!

Happy Holidays to you all!


Rika and Aaron
