Just have to get through tomorrow night & I'll have 3 lovely days off. No idea what I'll be doing, but still...this weekend has been a mixed bag. Friday was just frustrating with personnel issues at work, Saturday was ridiculous with TECHNICAL issues at work, & today customers were just outright RUDE. Sigh. I hate the holidays.
I turn 25 tomorrow...scary. I remember being in middle school & thinking I'd NEVER be this old. But alas, time flies. I'm working, of course. I'm a grown-up, the days of partying & going out are so over. It's funny that I never really partied or went out for my birthday, other than to dinner. I've just never felt the need to go get hammered, I guess.
Jess & I will be married a year in April. It's crazy that it was that long ago that we got married!
We went to Fantastic Mr. Fox last week. It was the sweetest movie I'd seen in a while, very entertaining, like anything Wes Anderson does. I want to see it again, but I think this week we're going to An Education. Precious will arrive in December, so of course we'll go catch that one. It looks amazing.
Thanksgiving was okay. We made a yummy vegan dinner of chickpea cutlets, cheesy potatoes, green bean casserole & mac & cheese. We were originally planning to spend the holiday with Jess's family in Blair, but finances kept us away. The car needed new tires, we needed food...rent is due...it all prevents us from having fun, not that Nebraska is that fun.
Tegan & Sara in Minneapolis in March. I can't wait. We're going to stay at our hotel for like 4 to 6 nights depending on how much money we can save. & we're going to eat yummy vegan food at Galactic Pizza, Triple Rock and the like.
But until then I'll be working up a storm, paying bills, filing taxes early next year...you know, the usual. We'll see how far my dollars will stretch this next year. Hopefully the financial backslide will improve, people will go back to work, & start spending money & stimulating the economy. We'll see.
I've become enamored with Lady GaGa recently. She's theatrical...ridiculous sometimes...and awesome. Don't forget awesome.
