Look! More Christmas Photos!

Because that’s how we roll, Christmas morning.

Athena hard at work at Christmas 2010: The Unwrapination.

One of Athena’s gifts. Her gifts parted out between geekish and stylish, because, you know. Look at her parents.


“Put down that camera and unwrap your presents.” I got a very nice coat with hat and gloves, the Autobiography of Mark Twain (which I bought for myself, but which Krissy wrapped when I wasn’t looking) and a Belgian Waffle maker. His name is Hans.

And of course it wouldn’t be Christmas if one didn’t spoil one’s dog!

The cats were also spoiled, with catnip-filled mice. Here is Lopsided Cat, who is, dude, so very high right now.

Happy Christmas!

  1. Doug:

    Yes. But then I tell people not to get me things for Christmas, since I typically buy the things I want to have. The pets are not typically independent shoppers.

  2. “Put down that camera and unwrap your presents.”

    :-) My daughter was so pleased with her new camera,. she spent most of breakfast photographing her fried eggs.

    Merry Christmas, John and all the Scalzis.

  3. Excellent photo of a blissed-out cat doing his best impression of a small rug.

    I think I’ll put catnip down for the felines here when I get up to start the Christmas Day Drinkification shortly.

Mays is the Improbable Author of "The Mutineer's Daughter", "A Sword Into Darkness", "Demigod", "Lancers Into The Light", and numerous short stories here on the web, such as "Strategic Deployment", "Dreams for Sale -- Two Bits!", "The Rememberists", "Bumped", "Within This Horizon" and others. When he's not writing, he works on the east coast, Somewhere Unspecified, doing Something For The Navy. He plans not to dwell on it here, but they'll probably have to resurrect Robert Mitchum or Gregory Peck to play him in a movie, because Tom Cruise just doesn't have the gravitas. What he prefers to do with his time, however, is play with his three beautiful kids, his rambunctious mutt, or his too-good-for-him girlfriend.

    I ALSO received a Belgian waffle maker for Christmas, John. Along with that, got a new circular saw, a tool bag, screwdrivers, floor mats, and a beef stick. I’m not yet sure how these all combine into one comprehensive gift, but whatever they make together will be AWESOME.

  5. Whee! I think the instructions are all in Japanese, but she’ll figure it out. Also, upsidedownlopsidedcat rocks.

  6. Dude, your daughter is such a lucky girl! Athena is living one heck of a childhood! Thanks for brightening my day with memories of my own awesome childhood in Kingston, Ontario.

  7. While nominally a dog lover (daschunds, the organic electric blankets!) I think I can read your cat’s mind Right Now: “DUUUDE, THE COLORS…hey, make that dog stop licking me!” At least that seems to be the gist of it. Merry post Christmas to the Scalzi family.
