Yes, I’m alive.
And extremely apologetic for taking so long to post ANYTHING.
Truth is, settling in has taken longer than expected. So has getting my behind to the computer store to buy a new laptop (which I just purchased on Monday). So please forgive me.
But I’m (periodically) back in time for the last month – and busiest holiday season – of the year.
Now on top of normal everyday adult shizz, I have to now balance Christmas duties – presents, parties, good cheer, etc.
I know – first world problems. But, still.
I’ll try to be more consistent with the posting – when I’m not tired or drying out, that is.
I can’t really think of anything to pontificate on (mainly because I’m in a location other than in my apartment in front of my laptop). So for now, I’ll kick off this month with my first random holiday tally of the month.
2: Number of times I’ve seen snow this week (and lamented the end of fall)
0: Number of decorations hung for Christmas
4 (possibly more): Number of mandatory gifts to buy
0: Number of gifts bought
3: Maximum number of hours I hope to spend shopping at the mall for Christmas
0: Number of Christmas cards written, stuffed and mailed
30: Number of stamps I’ll probably need for aforementioned stamps
300: (Probable) Number of address labels with my old address on them
1: Number of Christmas CDs purchased*
7: Number of holiday parties I have already been invited to**
0: Number of ugly Christmas sweaters worn
3-4: Number of drinks I told my doctor I consume on average, per week (at my recent physical)
4: Number of drinks I’ve already consumed this week
0: Number of those drinks being of a holiday nature (ie. egg nog)
0.5 : Number of Christmas specials watched**
TOO MANY: Number of times I’ve heard Christmas music in stores of any kind since mid-November
That’s all, y’all. I’ll post again soon.
* Hey! It was a Putamayo World Music CD … AND I got it for $1. This is probably the ONLY time this year I’m voluntarily buying Christmas music.
**I might be crashing a party (with a friend of the host’s blessing), which would bring the unofficial number to 8.
