went to dinner and rented a movie ... michael takes very good care of me when i get like this. he had to leave, since he has a final tomorrow, so i've been here by myself since about 3:30.
it's always the punishment ... i get a few days of energy, of waking up in the mornings and bouncing around all night ... then i am punished for it with some time of lethargy, of sadness and apathy.
finding a middle would be okay.
I think I'm going to be traditional this year, as a cover-up for my cheapness. My family will get their gifts as brown paper packages tied up with string. Hopefully no one will mind the trader joe's logos on the insides ...
