December is in full swing. I am having trouble typing because my nails are long. I’ve been avoiding typing on anything including my phone – just ends up with a lot of backspacing and who wants to be doing that?
These nails were supposed to last a day. Well, it’s been five days.
Anywho, yesterday was my birthday.
Party was on Saturday – no one wants a party on a Monday. The usual annoyances of this time of year kicked in … it’s fucking December so people have work parties and whatnot. Annoying! 🙂
Was a fun night though.
Got to spend time with some awesome people while drinking tequila. No stories though! Unusual!
We did almost die on Friday night on our way to the airport to pick up Chrissy – that was way too exciting. We’re all okay. Car is okay. Amazingly the guy behind us didn’t go through us. My Knight cleverly avoided crashing into the cars in front of us and prevented the guy behind us from crashing into us. It was close. Way too close. We were shaken.
I’m currently reading a book that has me baffled. I can’t quite understand why it’s a novel and not a short story. I’m almost finished, and I think the story could’ve been told in three pages. The weak premise and screwed timeline are making it tricky going.
It’s confusing but not in an “oh, clever” way. Honestly, if the characters all died at the end I wouldn’t care. Gimme a rifle, I’ll even help.
I didn’t do a birthday giveaway this year. I was going to but I did one not that long ago. I’ll probably do one in Feb.
