I'm doing laundry so I'll have clean clothes to wear for the holiday. And of course I put a new load in the washer and totally forgot to push start. I remembered the soap, and setting it. Just didn't actually start it. FAIL.

I am now the proud renter of an apartment in Cotati. I'm super excited. I move on the ninth (OMG only like, 2 weeks to pack! Eep!) but since I'm just moving out of my dad's then I can take my time about getting all my stuff. I signed up for Comcast today and why the fuck does cable and the internets cost so fucking much? Anyway. Yay! Merry Christmas to me.

And now I have 5 whole days off of work.

Fuck you Mattel. Everyone else might already know this, but they are totally discontinuing the American Girl doll Samantha. To make room for a modern one. Great. So instead of a cool historical doll with awesome outfits and stuff, there's going to be yet another doll in slutty clothes? Yeah, that's cool for little girls. Now I'm feeling all nostalgic and wondering what I did with my American Girl dolls. Crap. I hope I didn't get rid of them. Grrrrrr.

Between this, and the 12-year old girl who was accosted outside of her home by unidentified plainclothes detectives and accused of being a prostitute and then had assault charges filed against her and her father because they fought against her being carted off by total strangers, I'm not in a very good mood. Deep breath. That was kind of a really long sentence.

Hit Bush in the face with a shoe. Best game ever? Possibly so.

And, I found out that we're going to be closed all day on Christmas Eve and the day after, so now I have a 5 day weekend. Whoo-hoo! I don't get paid for it, because I haven't accrued enough vacation time yet, but so what? Plus, if New Years is just as slow, I'll get another 5 day weekend that week. Awesome.

Everyone should go here. Hysterical.

And the most disturbing news of the day award goes to - Drew Peterson. He's a former police officer from Chicago whose wife disappeared like a year ago and is a suspect in her disappearance. It was his fourth wife in fact. The first two divorced him, after multiple abuse charges and restraining orders, and his third wife died in the bathtub under suspicious circumstances. AND HE'S NEWLY ENGAGED. To some 23-year old moron, obviously. Even if you didn't think he killed anyone, who could get past all the abuse charges and restraining orders? Is this really the type of person that one MARRIES?!? Apparently so. Christ.

On a lighter note, we had a potluck today at work and it was like, the best work potluck ever. Someone made a sweet potato casserole that was maybe the best thing I've ever put in my mouth. I had waaaaaay too much food and wanted to explode.

When you see this, quote Leo McGarry:

Leo: [on the phone with the New York Times] 17 across. Yes, 17 across is wrong... You're spelling his name wrong... What's my name? My name doesn't matter. I am just an ordinary citizen who relies on the Times crossword for stimulation. And I'm telling you that I met the man twice. And I recommended a pre-emptive Exocet missile strike against his air force, so I think I know how...
C.J.: Leo!
Leo: They hang up on me every time.
C.J: That's almost hard to believe.

Man, I starting looking for quotes and there was so many that I was like, oh I love that one! And so I just picked one of the first and I'm going back now to read them all and be happy. Oh show, you were so good.

Somehow I totally missed three packages from Amazon on the porch today when I came home from work. Ooops. But let's hear it for online Christmas shopping! Now I'm....still not half-way done. Sigh.

I think I might be spending more money this year on total strangers. Seriously. I picked an ornament off a tree for a C.O.T.S. kid and spent like 100 bucks on him. And I picked like 3 1/2 people off a tree at work and am spending about the same on each person. And I donated 100 bucks to a family the OR adopted. Jesus. I've got to get some self control before I run out of money. Although next year I won't be living at home anymore *crosses fingers* (and if I am, will someone please smack me?) so I won't be able to throw money around like this. I guess it's better than buying useless shit for myself, right? Right.

Also, it's freezing here. I know there's people on my flist that live in like, actual cold places, but it's cold for here okay! It hailed today. And right now from my mid-calves up, I'm freezing. Thank god for my Uggs.

I know I shouldn't be, but I can't stop laughing at this.

This might be the cutest thing I've ever read. A little French girl has written a letter to Santa:

Père Noël,Collapse )

Seriously. I'm dead from the cute. And the exploded ovaries.

Also, my concert last night was amazing. It's always great to hear people live and have them sound exactly the same as they do on an album. And you haven't really lived until you've heard a sixty-something year old, Scottish, folk-rock singer covering 'Oops, I Did It Again'. It was hysterical. Sadly, it brought me to the conclusion that I actually like Britney Spears songs, as long as someone else is singing them. Which I guess doesn't mean too much, since I'm pretty sure she doesn't write her songs. So that's something. But still.
I Am At: work. again.

Everyone should read this about people getting into a fucking brawls at Chuck E. Cheese - The 'E' stands for eviserate. Seriously? I find this hysterical. Although I'm never going to a children's birthday party again, just in case something like this happens.

Being bored doesn't usually make me spammy, but I'm in a good mood today.
