Jesus had a beard.

Yesterday we were all finally home and together for the first time in a month. Katrina called us downstairs to break and eat the New Year's bread. We each got a piece, even Jesus! But, the piece of bread that was cut for the house got the lucky coin. Score! (It's a good thing Jesus doesn't really respect lucky coins, otherwise he might feel a little jipped.)

Then it was time to exchange our Secret Santa gifts.

"Um, it's going to be a scarf. Someday."

Brie was my Secret Santa and gave me a kit for making cocoa. I've been joking for weeks about how that is the best pick-up line ever in the middle of winter. "Hey, do you want to come back to my place for some hot chocolate?" If some guy ever said this to me, I'd go to his place in a second. That pick-up line ranks right up there along with, "Do you want to see my kittens?"

I suspect guys with beards would really like hot chocolate. Maybe the smell of the chocolate would get caught in his facial hair, and it would make our later make-out (and my subsequent rash) all that more delicious. If not, maybe bits of the marshmallows would get caught in his beard and make for a tasty snack later. Here's to hoping!

Later in the evening, I modelled the ultra-feminine bathrobe my mom got me for Christmas for my housemates. They pointed and laughed.

    Hey Jess, it's Julia here.
    I just have to say that I got a wicked two piece floral pajama set that would go wonderfully with the bath rob! Gotta love parents (and Grandparents!)

    its me julia again..I just have to correct a little spelling error. I recieved a robe.. not a floral rob!

  3. Jess, it's Mon. I just thought I should point out that hot chocolate smells rank when it goes bad. I can only imagine how gross it would be molding in some guys beard! Good thing you made a hygene requirement for your bearded lover. But you should be careful about beard food, and remember what happens when things are left out in the " danger zone" Can't wait to see you in Toronto this weekend!
    Love ya

  4. Your title reminded me of a Kris Kristofferson tune:

    "Jesus was a capricorn
    He ate organic food
    He believed in love and peace
    And never wore no shoes

    Long hair, beard and sandles
    And a funky bunch of friends
    Reckon we’d just nail him up
    If he came down again"
