JJ needs a break. He deserves a good time... a small getaway.


I need to come up with something quick... Something low-maintenance, but fun.

I think I got it. Just gotta do my research :)

Christmas shopping

Friday, November 28, 2008
So here I am, listening to music, burning CDs onto my laptop, while JJ tries to reassemble an airsoft that he disassembled (fail baby. fail.)... and I've decided I'm doing most of my Christmas shopping online. :)

Except tomorrow.

In only 5 hours, I'll be at the local used book store, which is having a 20% off sale, plus the first 100 customers get a free bag + a chance to win a $100 gift card... and I know I'm lame, and I'll probably one of only 40 people to show up, but I'm super stoked...


Because if I could get a single amazing gift this Christmas, I'd be happy with a new amazing book.

Currently, I'm reading a book called Super Flat Times, by Matthew Derby (click the link for the google preview)...

[* quick side note... HE ASSEMBLED THE GUN!! good job baby. i'll buy you breakfast on my way home :) *]

The book is pretty interesting so far... I may wrap it up and hand it down to someone by Christmas time... We'll see. :)

I need to buy more gift wrap too.. Meh. Dollar store purchase for sure.

I'm so not focusing... I felt the urge to blog, but now my mind is just jumping and wandering. I'm gonna go back to online shopping. :)

I hate fluorescent lights. I prefer lamps.
Flourescent lights expose the ugly side of people, while lamps create a soft, warm glow.
Flourescent lights hurt my eyes when I'm just waking up, while lamps help my eyes gradually adjust.
Flourescent lights make me think of working (in a stressful atmosphere), while lamps make me think of reading (in a cozy atmosphere).
"Flourescent lights" is probably not even how you SPELL it properly; "lamps" is something I learned how to spell in 1st grade.

[I definitely just broke my parallel prose.]

I hate flourescent lights. I prefer lamps.
We have both in our bedroom... and he always turns on those fluorescent lights!!!

By the start of summer, I really wanna achieve my goals... These have been put off for so many months, due to several "excuses":
1) Pure lazy attitude
2) Re-organization of priorities -- family issues. "moving". family issues.
3) No time for relaxation - every time I DO find time to do these things, I end up sleeping now. haha

So.. without further ado, my early resolutions:

[1] Read more books!
[2] Advance my art skills (in the form of 'word art' that is haha)
[3] Go back to working out regularly.
[4] Maintain a proper diet (this time, without all the anorexic behaviors haha)
[5] Save money -- pay off those BILLS!
[6] Race JJ's car ;)

Yep... someday folks... someday. Hopefully by the start of summer I'll get myself [committed.

Archos 605 WiFi

Thursday, November 06, 2008
This is going to be my next big purchase. =)
Add the $30 for WiFi and $75 for a DVR Recorder, and I'll be good to go! =D

never satisfied.

People are never satisfied. We come up with new things to complain about every single day.

Whether it's being stuck in traffic, crappy weather, crying babies in a waiting room, (preteens), politics, or cold food, there are always negative comments.

The past few days was beautiful weather. Yesterday I had a customer who still found a reason to complain:

"What is going on with this weather? It's November. It should be cold already! [Darn] global warming."

Smile. It's nice out, you got your drugs, and you can enjoy the rest of your night NOT dealing with people like yourself.

Shut up already.
