Craft skillzzzzz

You guys, normally I am so not crafty. I am crafty with words, yes. However, if you were to give me a few popsicle sticks, some feathers and some glue, I would do the following: – Chew on the popsicle stick on account of I sucked my thumb for a while when I was aContinue reading “Craft skillzzzzz”

Merry Christmas, boys and girls

My gift to you – an amazing version of the famous story “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Seriously. Ryan Gosling’s in it, need I say more? drunk-history-christmas-with-ryan-gosling-jim-carrey-and-eva-mendes?playlist=featured_videos And now that you’re done with that, go watch the rest of the Drunk History videos. You won’t be sorry. Oh yeah, and merry Christmas and all that.

In case you needed another reason

Newsflash. I cannot find the charger for my camera battery. I found A camera charger, but it’s the wrong one, leading me to think mine might be somewhere I can’t go back to (cougholdjobcoughcough) or somewhere in the abyss that is my room/closet/car.. The best thing to do at this juncture would probably be toContinue reading “In case you needed another reason”

Go shawty, it’s your birthday

Yesterday I turned 26. I don’t feel all that old all the time, but it kind of comes in spurts. Like when I chaperoned a lock in for middle and high schoolers at my church and the DJ played Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” and NONE OF THEM HAD EVER HEARD OF IT. Except of course, BabyContinue reading “Go shawty, it’s your birthday”

25. CHRISTMAS

In 13 minutes, Christmas will be over. No more presents, no more Christmas music. I’m watching Christmas Vacation (third time in the past two weeks) on TV right now, taking full advantage of these last few minutes of this holiday. I’m unpacking my presents and thinking back on what an awesome day it was today.Continue reading “25. CHRISTMAS”

23. Anticipation

The whole month of December is one big build-up to a one-day(ish) payoff. Starting the day after Thanksgiving – earlier than that even, for some – all people are concerned with are getting ready for Christmas, which is the reason I’m going to shop online next year. Think about it though. All people are worriedContinue reading “23. Anticipation”

20. Family

Today, as is tradition every year on the weekend before Christmas, my family had their annual Christmas party. There’s always a TON of food – and by ton I mean RIDICULOUS AMOUNTS – and we do a white elephant gift exchange. This year there were 30 people that had to steal presents from each otherContinue reading “20. Family”

17. Online shopping

Yesterday in the mail I got a Christmas present I ordered for someone this year. And that, my friends, is why I like online shopping. I have never taken advantage of Cyber Monday – and I’ve only tried Black Friday once, no thank you – but can see why people do it. In fact, IContinue reading “17. Online shopping”

14. White elephant gift exchanges

I’m sitting in my living room staring at the back of a life-size cut out of Adam Sandler from “You Don’t Mess With the Zohan.” It was a gift someone brought to our Christmas party as part of our gift exchange – we did a white elephant swap. If you live under a rock andContinue reading “14. White elephant gift exchanges”
