    So the thing about this salon is...I have come to the conclusion that it's an alien landing place.

    Hope everyone had a great Christmas! It was a nice relaxing day for me. We didn't do a huge thing, just a small family event. Like I said on Thanksgiving, I only have two family members living here, and Brett has..none, so we usually do things low-key. For Thanksgiving a family friend spent the day with us, but she wasn't feeling well for Christmas and was unable to join us this time. Nonetheless, we enjoyed our Christmas hamburgers, opened gifts, and got to see my dad's side of the family on Yahoo Messenger's video chat. My sister and I drank entirely too much wine, I think, and giggled incessantly at everything...

    A few months ago I blogged about my new quest to read all 100 of the best novels ever written, and now I have an know, like the title says.

    So, I'm sitting here watching Maury..why, I don't know. Well, yeah, I do. Because I accidentally missed the "4" in "34" when trying to switch to CNN, and it landed on "3" instead and I didn't feel like changing it. Anyway, Maury is pretty good for when you feel like watching something that requires no intelligence, and when you want to know "Who IS this baby's father?" A far cry from the CNN I was really intending to watch! Anyway, my shopping is done today!...

    I work at a pretty fancy restaurant. You know, the kind that has a drive-thru and a funny mascot that scares many small children. Crazy stuff happens, and often I think of writing a book of short nonfictional stories about my adventures. This isn't a crazy story, but it could have been.

    Dear Internet, I am warning you now that this post is probably going to make me sound like some bitter, horrible person, but I'm going to do it anyway because I just realized that OMG CHRISTMAS IS LESS THAN TWO WEEKS AWAY.

    Yes, it is still a week before Thanksgiving and yes, it might be premature of me to be promoting this as the last entry before then, but I'm going to assume that I'm probably not going to be posting again within the week...because I haven't quite gotten myself into the habit of blogging on a regular basis.

    I tend to stay away from most issues like this, just because my opinion is so strong, but I couldn't help myself.
