Where I've Been

In one word: Crazytown.

Actually, I've been insanely busy with many activities ranging from buying Christmas gifts to spending this weekend in Las Vegas.

I got all of my gifts wrapped, packaged and mailed by the 12th. (Had all my Christmas cards mailed by the 11th!) A HUGE change from last year, which found me not celebrating Christmas at all. This year I made sure to be done early to make time for some fun traveling.

First there was Las Vegas. Spent Thursday evening through Sunday there. It was a girl's trip in celebration of Jenny's 22nd. I remember back in the day when I was 22 and in Vegas. Looooooong ago. ;-) We drank, we ate, we danced, we laughed, and experienced the ever-pleasant travel constipation.

Next I head to Texas to spend Christmas with Mom and Dad. I'm psyched....we're going to see the Nutcracker! I haven't gone to see that in years, so I'm very much looking forward to it. We also get to catch up on the latest DVD releases and hanging out. Yippee.

Then I head to Mexico. I'm pretty sure it will not suck at all. :-) I can't wait for the beach and warm weather.

Mostly, it means I'm approaching two weeks off from work, which is so what I need right about now!

Friday Fiver

Person, not sure, but I'm sure it was in jest. Otherwise, most likely Lucy and Hudson.

2. Do you drink wine?
Oh yes. White, red, sparkling...

3. Ever fly on a plane?
Yes. Many times.

4. Do you yell at your friends?
Almost never.

5. What have you quit?
When I was little I quit karate because I was afraid of the Sensei.
I've quit gymnastics, clarinet, crew (rowing team), Aegis, and putting up with unnecessary crap.
