Ugh. So tired. Have worked 27 hours in the past two days with two more to go. Working the week of Christmas blows, not only because we are short-handed and ridiculously busy, but our new hardware refuses to work right so guess who gets to stay and wait for the programmers? I'll give you a hint - it's not my boss. Add to this grocery shopping (violent urge meter: murder), preparing for annual family-filled Christmas party at my parent's house (violent urge meter: maim), and various other undone errands (violent urge meter: mischief/mayhem) and you have one grouchy chica.
I hate to say it, but I am so ready for Christmas to be over!
Okay, that was the crap. Here is the good stuff:
- birthday/anniversary party at my parent's house was good. I got money, a gift card (Old Navy!), and a purse I had picked out from Fossil. JP got me Pride & Prejudice on blu-ray, which rocks ass! All in all, a good day.
- the next day I headed up to Austin to hang with Nay-nay. Her and Danny took me to County Line on the Lake
for lots of barbeque and a beautiful view. Later, we went shopping and then to her brother's house where her sister-in-law had made me a cake. Aw! That night, we went to Applebees to watch the Dallas game and break the law (we smuggled a few airline liquor bottles in to make mixed drinks, ghetto-style). Afterwards, we retired to her house, I drank a whole bottle of Rosa Regale
, and was mildly sick the next morning. Lovely, lovely weekend.
- JP and I made our reservations to go to San Francisco in February. We are staying at the Hotel Bijou
, which is quaint and has a mini-theater that plays a double-feature every night and is apparently right around the corner from the local crack den. Sweet. We got a screaming good deal: two round trip airline tickets and 4 nights at the hotel for $650. Rock on.
Finally, I got off track with my meme, but allow me to er, re-track itDay 08 → A photo that makes you angry/sad
I don't like seeing animals being made to perform. Especially large ones. It makes me sad, even though I know a lot of them probably have better lives among humans than in the wild. That doesn't make it right. : (
