Apparently I'm an Adult now  
My oven is shit. And honestly too big. I'll spend an hour heating it up just to cook a small meal for one (eight chicken nuggets), and even then it would take twice as long to cook as it should. Plus the timer on it doesn't work, and I had a horrible tendency to forget how long ago I put something in there. It was bad, and I've been grouching about it for a while. So when Christmas turns up, what do I end up getting?

It's just big enough to cook food for one person, which as it happens is how many people I am. Plus it's just the right size to use as an improvised weapon should some sort of kitchen battle break out and knives weren't an option. Oh and yes, it actually works. There is only one down side. Being pleased at getting it as a gift has done more than any other thing to make me feel old.

I remember when I used to get toys for Christmas.

I know what you mean. A few years ago, my Aunt sent me a bunch of my favorite socks for my birthday. Without any sort of sarcasm, I excitedly told H about it as I realized that I'd have been in tears if this same Aunt had gotten me socks for my birthday. But hey, socks are important, useful, and expensive if you want good ones.

Enjoy your new mini-oven, and being a grown-up. Before you know it, you'll be doing your own laundry and making your own doc appointments. Little itchy is growing up!

Hey now, I take exception to the laundry thing. I've been doing my own laundry since I was 16. Handwashing clothes in water so cold that my hands would go numb. Because I was too hardcore to use any hotwater.

That is hardcore. Like, Xtreme Laundry!
