I do feel that i served my punishment this morning, by finishing my christmas shopping in a crowded Target, listening to wailing children (the one stomping through the electronics department, screaming "but i want it! i want it! i want it!" was particularly notable), and christmas songs. trying to find age-appropriate gifts for children i barely know was fun too. I got lost looking for the tiny section with books. Wrapping paper was $4, and barely was enough to cover four gifts. The total cost was shocking, but i put it all on my target card so i can defer christmas over a few months. All of this was accomplished with a raging hangover - the kind where the sun is painful and noise echos inside my skull.
It was also unseasonably hot - it's december 17, and it shouldn't be hot at all, right? it's bad enough that it's so hot in the summer out here, but i thought we got a break for the winter ...
Speaking of breaks for the winter ... i wish i got one. Both Michael and I are working five days next week, and i'm supervisor for three of the shifts that i'm on. With my favorite tech, who i'm sure will be in a great mood, since i do know that i wasn't all that nice to her at the party last night. I'm still trying to put a monterey trip together for michael and i, but we still don't know if he has the time off.
I've planned to do nothing tonight. i may take a nap, work on some knitting, make myself a nice dinner. Kelly taught me to crochet the other night, so i've been doing a bit of that as well. There are two new pregnancies in my extended family, so i think i'm going to start on baby blankets.
So one of the doctors has this dog, Koji. He's a super cool dog with very funny hair. The doctor wanted to make his mohawk purple, and i had some extra hair dye, so ...
it's been a mostly positive reaction, and the dog seems to like it.
oh, and this ...
You are a Maine Coon! You are larger than life, a
gentle giant. You are independent, but very
affectionate with your friends and family.
What breed of cat are you?
