(no subject)

Russian saying is, "how you meet the New Year, that's what it will be like". My parents and I were watching a movie and I screamed that it's 11:59 and we almost missed the New Year. Dad still managed to pour in champagne before it hit midnight, though. So it will be fast-paced and full of surprises, it looks like...

HOwever, gifts didn't turn out that well. The earrings I got are gorgeous (Swarovski crystal), and my dad found a perfume my mom loved back in the 1980s that was taken off the market and just returned this year, but the watch I got for my mom was too small for her hand so they will have to exchange it, and the massaging chair we got for my dad doesn't function and so will also have to be exchanged. Oh well, compared to how 2005 started, it's not bad at all.
