Aaron's Holiday Home Video

Here are a few clips of video I took from my various holiday gatherings, from the most frightening drive home ever, to our theatre company's holiday party the Sunday after Christmas, when I was back in Chicago. Enjoy!

Wow! I'm amazed you made it down so quickly in all that snow!

Your family is lovely. And maybe I'm just dizzy, but is that Nora "SNL" Dunn at the Handbag party?!?

You go to all the good parties!!! :)

Happy New Year, sweetie!

I'm amazed I made it at ALL. It was dark by the time I got home (because, you know, it was so sunny and bright in the video!). But I did, and it was good. My family really IS lovely. There were a few more folks you didn't get to see in this one, because we're doing our Christmas in a few weeks (but they were in the Thanksgiving video).

And that is, indeed, Nora Dunn. She's fantastically cool and nice. She and her friend Jesse (the cute boy at the end who waves) came to see "Silent Night" Tuesday, too. David knows all the best folks, I'm tellin' ya!

Happy New Year to you, too! We should drink again soon...it's that time of year!

OMG! Nora Dunn you impressed the Hell out of me. I so enjoy watching the children open presents too. I remember opening presents and hoping for a GI Joe doll I mean Action Figure but only getting socks and underwear. It made me nervous to watch you drive in the snow with one hand. I mean the other hand was making the video of course. I thought Dirk said they had trains everywhere in Illnois. OMG! Nora Dunn...sweeeeeet. ed

Ed: It's fun to watch the kids open presents. I had fun watching the grown-ups open them too, though, especially the ones I got 'em! I actually was holding the wheel with both hands. The right hand was aiming the camera at the road, but it was on the wheel. All ten knuckles were white. There are trains throughout IL, but I discovered 8 years ago that none of them go from Chicago to Chillicothe or Peoria anymore. The closest train station now is Princeton.

Stephen: I'm thinking Sidetracks, maybe in the next week or two? I'll e-mail you and we'll see what works...

Richard and Serge from Sticky Crows are coming to Chicago this weekend. Wouldn't it be great if they could see the Joans? I don't know where they are staying. I mean it will be wicked cold this weekend but they are Canadians so will think it a heat wave. haha. ed
