Every song is the same. The same two notes. How does that happen?

So, it's three days before Christmas, and I am sick of the Christmas commercials. I realize the best solution would be to stop watching television and go read a book or something. Especially since everything on right now is either junk or reruns of stuff I've already seen. But what else am I supposed to do while I knit? Plus, we lent all our Harry Potter DVDs to Ko, because he admitted he had only seen the first one, and I couldn't accept that. So I can't even put those on again.

I'm just tired of seeing the same four commercials over and over. Perfume, jewelry, cars, Target. Rinse and repeat. Blargh.

And just for fun, every now and then, they throw in an obnoxious snuggie commercial. The ones with the people singing stupid versions of songs with the word snuggie crowbarred in there. I especially can't stand that one girl that has the solo line. She's trying so hard, and I imagine she's some kid who's been trying to get ahead in musical theater her whole life, and she probably feels like this is a big break for her. Sorry, musical theater girl, but I can't stand you or your commercial.

Am I always this cynical, or do you think the holidays are bringing it out in me? It doesn't help knowing that you will already be off tomorrow, while I am at work, doing all the stuff I didn't get around to today. Boo.

I had the german measles in the 5th grade, I still had to show up to the Christmas party.

Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat!

Well, there's no goose, but Kara's home! That's close enough, right? I kid, I kid.

I am quite excited that Kara's home for Christmas, but for some reason, at least to me, it doesn't seem like Christmas yet. Maybe it's because I have a job, and only get the 23rd and 24th off. Part of me is still used to being a student and having weeks on end off for the holidays. Sometimes I wish I had that back. Hopefully today we will get our Christmas decorations out of storage, and that might help me get into the Christmas spirit.

Perhaps I should also watch some classic Christmas movies, such as Miracle on 34th Street, It's A Wonderful Life, and A Muppet Christmas Carol. (Yes, A Muppet Christmas Carol is a classic!)

Recently I got to have dinner a catch up with a friend of mine some high school, and that was a lot of fun. It's fun to be in on some of the post high school gossip. Nice to know my life isn't as cracked out as some peoples.

Jamie turned 1! He's so cute! Check it:

He really enjoyed the blue frosting. He looked like a smurf by the end of it.

Sometimes, having nephews makes everything better. :)

Just once I'd like to be able to say, "Yeah, I'm not feeling so good. My leg is haunted."

I don't really have anything to post about. I just couldn't pass up a perfectly good chance to use that quote. I bet you're jealous that I got a cold before you. Except that it means I have a cold. And that sucks.

Especially after three days. I wish I could just keep taking Nyquil until the whole thing is gone. Plus, I can't decide what I actually want. I spent two days in bed wishing I wasn't there, and then I made myself go to work today, and spent the whole day wishing I was back in bed. But I guess everybody does that when they're sick. It didn't help that everyone kept walking past my office making pitiful faces at me and saying, "Hey, sicky." And when my boss came in to my office to file stuff, she said, "I don't want to get your cooties!"


I wish you could have heard the sounds I was making after I took Dayquil this afternoon, though. It was a little bit hilarious. I almost forgot to take it, so I took some right as we were walking out the door after we ate lunch. Since I almost forgot, I didn't have anything else to eat or drink to get that taste out of my mouth, so I was making these weird, awful sounds. I probably sounded like I was speaking in tongues or something. If you had heard it, you would have made me make those sounds over and over again. It would have been funny, if it hadn't been for that taste in my mouth.

I hate being sick.

Ok, I'll stop complaining now.

Add one and divide by the Jew power


Hanukkah started earlier this week, and in celebration of that, my father bought The Spinagogue, so we've been playing a lot of dreidel at my house.

The Spinagogue!

Tomorrow in Veterans Park there's going to be a giant menorah lighting! I'm pretty excited about that!

And in the spirit of Hanukkah, here is a hilarious video!
