Ah~ Christmas this year. All I can say is, it was not as interesting as last year's.
I had to work the whole day again, but unlike last year, there weren't that many customers. The day practically crawled by. I blame the recession.
The only exciting thing that happened was the presents I received from my aunt and cousins.
My aunt gave me this cute Target gift card.
#1. Really cute! Its beard and hair are made out of velvet!!
No idea how much the gift card has (forgot to ask), but I really appreciate it! Thanks Aunty Tracy!
My cousins' gift was a little amusing at my expense.
#2. Angry Bird's pig
Yup. I got the pig from that famous Angry Bird game. They were trying to 'subtly' indicate something about my character in real life by giving me this pig instead of the Angry Bird. An insult to my character I tell you! *bangs fist on table
But since it is so adorable, I will let this thinly-veiled insult slide. *folds arm with nose in the air Lol!! Thanks Jamie & Haru!
Right now I'm trying to come up with a name for my alter ego, a.k.a. the pig.
For the past few days, my Spanish co-workers and I have been putting our heads together and this was what we came up with:
#3. List of potential names.
In Spanish, 'Feo' means ugly, and 'Gordo' means fat. I was told that 'Paco' is like an endearing name for little boys.
I really like Milo and Feo. But I don't want to be calling my pig ugly. So, I'm deciding between Milo and Gordo.
If you come up with any cuter or nicer names, let me know. I will put your suggestions into consideration.
Merry Christmas, everybody and a happy new year!
p/s: It has been decided that my pig is a male, so no female names please.
