Aside from the Wii, We had a really nice Christmas together (with the exception of Mr. Dinosaur Toes wanting to sleep in on Christmas morning) and a fun day of playing with our new toys! How was your Christmas, and what sorts of goodies did you get?

Also, have you tried the Pillsbury Cinnabon cookies? Mmmmm, I made them last night and my mouth is watering just thinking about them. But I have to remember, "a second on the lips, forever on the hips!"
I bundled up and headed out to play, but I couldn't find the nice, waterproof wellies, so I had to wear my snowboarding boots which are too big and super stiff. The 12+ inches of snow, plus my stiff boots, plus my short legs, combined with little physical strength made for one heck of a workout! I don't see a treadmill in my future today as my legs did enough fat burning already!
I have two or three more Christmas presents to buy, and then it's time for a little treat all for myself...prints! Last, I'm doing something new, a weekly series if you will, "Wish List Wednesday." Check back tomorrow!
Me: Tell us your name and three things about yourself.
Him: Yes, ma'am (sarcasm). My name is Chris. One, I've always enjoyed helping others no matter what the task; helping others is the drive behind altruismed. Two, motorcycles are another passion of mine, I prefer two wheels to four. Three, I live on a farm and wish farming were my full time job.
Me: How long have you been thinking about bringing this idea to fruition?
Him: Since December of 2007.
Me: Where do you hope altruismed will be in three years?
Him: A continually growing worldwide effort in kindness.
Me: If time, money and safety were not issues, what would be the one altruism you'd like to do?
Him: I have thought long and hard about "huge" altruisms, and while it would be amazing to think that someone might altruism another with a house or a car, I would prefer to pass on smaller altruisms such as treating someone to lunch, or simple things like assisting someone with their yardwork, even a quarter for a parking meter. Smaller altruisms would be more apt to continually be passed from one person to another.
Me: You wanna cook dinner for me tonight, and then brush my hair until I fall asleep?
(Well, it never hurts to ask!)

Maybe it's a bit juvenile of me to continually get giddy when I find a package in my mailbox or on my doorstep, but I just can't help it! It's like Christmas all through the year!
On another note, I'm a complete fashion disaster (which maybe helps to explain my addiction to fashion blogs), so I think, or at least I tell myself, that scarves can add a bit more interest to my rather dull and boring wardrobe. Either way, I'm hoping it's cold tomorrow so I can wear one of my new favorite accessories!
Next, I plan to get, "Dinosaur Toes" on the inside of my arm between my pitter and my elbow. It's not the lowest form of shameless self-promotion, I can assure you, but Dinosaur Toes is a little nickname I have for my feathered friends, and what better way to say I love them than to wear it?!?
