Randomivity


Today my horoscope says:


Try not to get weighed down by your own emotions today, Mags, but make sure you give them the opportunity to have their time in the spotlight. You may find that there is a strong force working to cover up the truth of what you really feel. Make sure you express yourself openly and honestly.
Um...yes. This is pretty much 100% on point...today I will not be weighed down. I will let my negative thoughts be fluid and to drip right away.

Sometimes I wish I could be a stand up comic for just an hour-so that I could tell you about all of the un-ladylike things that happen without you really judging me. Like when certain parts of your body twitch when you are in public and you have to touch them.

Being told that you are the prettiest girlfriend someone's had (by someone other than your boyfriend) is a pretty great feeling. Even if it is indirectly.

Cheap glasses make my day. (I'll blog about this soon!)

Sometimes Tupperware does work as a mousetrap.

When you find a mouse that is not yet dead, by all means, let it go. But please, let it go OUTSIDE! ;)

Kissing in front of your very first Christmas tree is amazing.

I don't like being bought. Even though I love presents, I don't love it when people use them to buy my affection. It's troublesome. And now I feel obligated to reciprocate.

Is it weird that a guest of ours is finding an alternate "date" for our dinner party on Friday? His partner (who we are friends with) can't make it, so he's looking for someone else to bring. I don't actually really mind, but I would never think to do that. Am I weird?

Don't answer that. I already know the answer. :)

I have the bestest boyfriend in the whole entire world.

Fluid...I Like That

Toosdae ?'s

Good morning! Actually, as of right now, it's not been a good morning. My hair dryer is on the fritz and that threw my morning off (for the 2nd day in a row!). When I got to work, the coffee machine was broken. :( Luckily though, the morning is turning around because I didn't get into an accident on the way to work (I worry about that when I have mornings like this!) and the coffee is now brewing somehow. *sigh* Moving on to sunshine and happiness...

1. What is your least favorite holiday song? (I thought of this question last night while listening to Christmas music and ironing our drapes-it has NO reflection on my sour mood earlier! LOL!)

2. What is your favorite food to order from a street vendor?


1. To be honest, I'm not a fan of "Oh Christmas Tree". I wouldn't say I hate it, but it's not favorite.

2. Hot dogs! (Did you think it would be anything else?!)

There are only 2 questions...my brain is too foggy right now!

Up on the Rooftop

This weekend B1 and I picked out and decorated our very first Christmas tree. We walked to the park a few blocks away and bought the tree then walked back and put it in the living room to settle overnight. Saturday we did errands and met back at the house to decorate and to watch Christmas movies.

It was, needless to say, awesome.

Here is our tree:

I think I mentioned to you all that I used to collect ornaments that had to do with the year that just passed. I threw most of them out (on purpose and by accident) so most of my ornaments are generic. This year I wanted to find a pool themed ornament for B1 and I since we met while playing pool. I found this:

I wrote the date on the back and had B1 write our names on the cues. *sigh* Even though it's a little hokey, I love it.

And here are our stockings, hung with care by B1. (I swear, I did stuff too!)

Of course, my little elf stocking holder from when I was little sits in our office. Maybe one day I'll have a mantle to put him on.

We also have garland on the railing leading upstairs and various other little decorations sprinkled throughout the apartment. It's very homey. :)
