YES, yes, yes.

Um, I may have a little bit of state pride.

Happy Boxing Day!

Hope that you all had a fantastic day yesterday, whether you celebrate Christmas or not. I live in the shady area of the Venn diagram of 25 December- one circle, Christmas; one circle, Jewish; shady area: movie and Chinese food. Seven Pounds- SAD. Mamma Mia! (which I've watched 3 times in the past day)- HAPPY.

I'll be back with more substantial posts when I'm back in my own apt and away from the warm bosom of my family.

Last Minute

If anyone out there is looking for a last minute gift for me, I wouldn't be upset to see this under the tree. Etymology and reference materials- two of my favs.

Do you feel my heart beating?

For it is beating with a love for Pushing Daisies. I know I talk of how I love most television, but honestly, PD is a fav for forever. Unfortunately, it falls on Wednesday night which is a big TV night in my house and I often don't catch up for weeks.

Which means that I didn't see this until last night.

Why don't they have Olive sing all the time? Maybe they do it only once a season. Here's her take on Grease from last year.

God, SO GOOD. She dances with a golden retriever.

Perfect late fall day

I can complain a lot. Yes, yes, I'll wait for the snickering to die down. But it is true- I often complaining comically but the complaining is still there.

But not today.

Today was the perfect fall day. I slept in, I showered, I walked to Georgetown to see a friend at work and have some quiche and Christmas cookies. I had two cups of tea and bought edamame. I exchanged Christmas gifts with my lovely roommates. I cooked chicken and rice for dinner. We watched funny TV. A roommate looked over a cover letter to a job I'm OBSESSED with getting. I'm now sitting, snuggled in my bed, watching TV online and thinking of all the lovely sleep I'll be getting when I go to bed early.

Today was a good day. And there isn't too much funny about it, but I'll get humor out of frustration some other time.

Hurry! Hurry!

Until midnight tonight, you can get 15% off any purchase at Mod Cloth with the coupon code FINAL 15. In most cases, it is like getting free shipping, but without having to rack up $75 in the process. Not that I couldn't find $75 worth of things that I want, but that I really can't justify that kind of purchase on myself right now.

Or ever really.

But these shoes, no matter how much Karel hates them, just called to me.
And they will soon be mine.

Because I like to occupy my mind with worries suitable to several months in the future, I've been thinking about where I'll be living after graduation and my lease is up. It is pretty clear that I will be moving- probably to the city proper, though I'm not 100% sure- and I was thinking that it might be time for me to live alone. I never have- always roommates, parents, a boyfriend- and perhaps a 26 year old woman should learn some independence. Also, I like to hang out in my underwear.

But then I have fantastic giggly nights with my roommates, laughing over stupid slips of tounge, ridiculous television, just life. And I wonder- do I really want to live alone? Do I want to give up all these random good times?

Should I perhaps first tackle taking a shower today?

First snow of the year :) Remind me how happy I am now when I complain about shitty weather in February.

I did it! 30 posts in 30 days. Go me. I'll let you know if I win anything.

I'm probably going to take it easy for a bit. The last month was long- Thanksgiving being so late kinda threw things off- and I know December is going to fly, with finals, making Christmas gifts, holiday parties. So hard, being popular, right? But I like the trend that I've gotten into here, with the more frequent posting. So, for your sake and mine, I will do my best to be a bit more regular!

Happy December!
