Well, gave me a chance to make a few phone calls. That's one of the minor bitches about being on the West Coast: when you have family in earlier time zones, they tend to forget that you are behind them, time-wise. Example:
*ring ring*You'd be surprised to know how often I have to deal with that. But, hey, Happy Xmas to ya all, anyway.
Me: Huh, whutda...Hello?
Mom: Good morning, hello! Are you awake? Did I wake you up?
Me: Mom, it's 6:30 in the morning. Of course I'm not awake.
Mom: Oh, yeah, I forgot, it's 9:30 here, hahaha...so anyway, blah blahblah...
Me: I'm hanging up. I'll call you back when I'm awake, conscious and no longer annoyed.
