My sister and I made a GingerBauHaus this year.

This is the first year that I made presents for my whole family, which is nice. Mom gets a bunch of new pillows, brother gets a vest, sister gets a skirt/blouse, dad gets a shirt.

In about twelve hours, I'm going to be fairly drunk with my brother, watching Muppets' Christmas Carol.

My gift to you all: I used to make a Christmas CD for my friends every year, here's the cover and track list for the best one I ever made, check it out for some lovely christmas tunes, which I'll add here as I find them.

1. A Very Lo-Fi Christmas

2. Santa Steinberg - Bacio

3. Harsh the Herald Angels Sing - CFTPA

4. Last Christmas - goto80

2. Comparing Ugly Sweaters

5. Lumberjack Christmas - Sufjan Stevens

6. Snowed in on Christmas - The New Anxiety

7. Undone, the Christmas Song - Windsor Park Walkers.

8. Carol of St. Benjamin the Bearded One - Sufjan Stevens

9. Christmas in July in December - The New Anxiety

10. Somewhere in my Memory, Home Alone Theme - Famikiller

3. Hennessy in my Egg Nog

11. Santa Baby - Run DMC feat. Snoop, Diddy, Salt & Pepa

12. Ghostface Christmas - Ghostface Killa

13. Grinch - Busta Rhymes / Jim Carrey

Bonus: Christmas in Harlem, Kanye etc.

Unfortunately, most of the Jazz part of this comes from "Christmas from the Blue Note", which isn't available to stream anywhere.

16. Medley - Bela Fleck and the Flecktones

18. Christmas Time is Here - Woods

19. Christmas in Oakland - Advance Base

20. Barcarola, You Must be a Christmas Tree - Sufjan Stevens

EDIT: AHH my parents just found the first "clothing" I ever made: A santa suit for my stuffed animal, "Lamby" when I was 8.

I'm such a sucker for gingerbread houses.

Dang. Buckminster Fuller inspired gingerbread housing. Very forward-thinking.
