Sharif and I went to the mall yesterday to redeem the gift certificate he gave me for Christmas for the Build-A-Bear Worshop. I've been talking about that place since it opened up, and now I've finally done it. My bear's name is C. E. Flufferton III. Perhaps incongruously, he wears a leather jacket and aviator sunglasses. He's pretty cool.
We went to the movie after the Building of the Bear, using another Christmas gift certificate. Once we got home, we decided that it was a pretty nice evening to have someone bring us a pizza. And half an hour later, someone did. It was a good day.
