let it snow!

Call me crazy, but I like my winters cold and with lots of snow. St. Louis weather, I will not miss you when we go.
This note was during the 59 degree cold freeze in our house last week.
Chris described this note as "Brady being you". Ha ha ha. Truth is I am a very courteous driver who now has massive road rage due to my 45 min. each way commute to work. I swear I only use expletives with drivers who deserve it!

Did I mention how much I want it to snow here?

A problem with our furnace kept it about 59 degrees in our house earlier this week. Brrr! That combined with the flat (like, super duper flat) tire I got last week means that for christmas this year I got a working furnace and a new tire. Yay for being a grownup! Don't feel too sorry for me though, I have it on good authority that there will still be some treats under the tree for me next week.

Speaking of, I am just not feeling anything holiday or christmas this year. I can usually get excited about this time of year (shopping+ baking + gift giving + food + gift receiving = awesomeness) but this year . . . nothin'. I couldn't even feel all christmassy watching my favorite xmas movies Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Love Actually. Help!

This note was inspired by commericals during ABC "news" (Using news in quotes, because they like to cover things like who won dancing with the stars - this is not news people! Please quit "reporting" shit that happened on your own network's reality tv shows. But I digress . . .) the other morning while I was getting ready for work. It was like Clapper commerical, Chia pet commerical, Clapper commerical, Chia pet commerical. Thinking that we might have actually been transported back to 1987 in our sleep, I did my best mall bangs and left the house with my jeans tight rolled.

young at heart

I'll let this note speak for itself. But clearly, we are in no danger of being grown-ups anytime soon.

lazy present hiders

Recently, I bought some presents for Chris, put the bag in my office and threw a blanket over it and said "Don't Look". Stealthy, indeed.

In regards to school, got news yesterday that made it very easy to scale back my classes next semester. Which now puts graduation at 2010, which is awesome 'cause I will be able to take my flying car and/or jet pack to the ceremony.

cloak and dagger

Chris and I are slowing working our way through the glut of DVDs we've purchased recently, which actually means that I've watched almost all of a bunch of movies lately. I feel like old age is impending when I can't stay up until 10 p.m. to finish a movie.

My semester officially ended just a few moments ago when I submitted my final project for my web design class. Yay for that! This semester has been wonderfully laid back compared to semesters past. Now I can't decide if I should scale back on my classes for next semester and take another year to finish my degree or if I should just make myself miserable for a short time and get my degree done faster.

wake-up call

This lovely little scene plays out every night between about 3 and 4 am. I have no idea why Scout chooses to wake me up, since Chris is the one that feeds her. I'd like to think it's because she loves me more.
