the final stretch of gift-giving @ 05:05 pm
cash is running tight, but i have some ideas for easy, cheap presents to give to the kids in my family. that shouldn’t be hard to do.
i’m still seeking ideas for gifts for those hard-to-buy folks like my uncle. i know he’d appreciate any sort of sports gifts he could get, though, so i’m looking into that. he loves the georgia bulldogs, that’s for sure…anything georgia is game!
i put my guitar and a necklace on craigslist today for sale. here’s hoping someone’s interested. i’m having a christmas get-together this saturday and won’t provide any refreshments, since they all pretty much went to waste at my birthday party…it’s strictly BYOB this time! my next check won’t be deposited until december 23rd, so i’ve got to make the most out of my moolah until then!

who cares that oprah gained weight? @ 06:01 pm
she freaking apologized for her 40+ pound weight gain over 2 years. what’s there to apologize about? she’s just like anybody else who struggles with their weight. i’ve gained about 20 of my lost pounds back since the beginning of the year. it sucks, but i’m not apologizing to anybody for it. it’s my own fault that i let food control me, and it’s my own selfishness that allows me to keep eating stuff that’s not good for me. don’t apologize to anyone, oprah. shit. you just like to eat, honey; ain’t nothin’ wrong with that. come live in georgia; we WORSHIP greasy food here.
anyway, i worked for awhile today and then went to the mall to pick up my new glasses. i broke my other pair when i was in atlanta…i took them off to polish on my shirt and they literally broke in half. i had to superglue them back together until today. suckage! these new ones are super cute and remind me of the ones bethany has…they’re brown outside with pale blue on the inside. of course, they still fit the standard “librarian” look i’ve been sporting for nearly 5 years now…but i don’t mind; i think they suit me.
in other news, my dad got laid off again. first he was laid off from mclendon, now he’s laid off from this new job he’s got in savannah. they say it’s only for 3 weeks, and he hasn’t had to give his linc, truck, etc. back, but i’m still worried about money. i hate so much how it affects him to be unemployed. my daddy’s not someone who likes to sit around all day; he HAS to be doing something…so this period of time really, really sucks for him. keep your fingers crossed that these 3 weeks will bring the company more work so my daddy can regain his job.
tonight’s practice night for my last reference presentation. i’ll be really excited to get this over with tomorrow. i’m ready for a month-long break!

it’s all about the hamiltons, baby @ 05:19 pm
i took care of some holiday shopping in atlanta, so beka’s presents are all taken care of. i’m really excited about what i’ve gotten her. i can’t ever wait till christmas for people to open their presents from me! i’ve still got several people to buy for, and fortunately, i made a bit of extra money during my class in macon when i sold my management book to a classmate, so i’m going to use that to pay for my dad’s present.
i’m working on extra ways lately to find money, which also means entering a contest where you come clean and confess about any impulse shopping sprees you may have had. you can win up to $33,000 in prizes just by confessing! i think i’ll talk about that on-a-whim ipod i bought nearly 3 years ago…i don’t regret my purchase, though. if you sign up and use my blog’s URL as the referral, i can win $500, which would be totally awesome. i have credit card bills to pay off, but who’m i kidding? that money would more than likely be spent on something i don’t need but want! story of my life, eh. even if you don’t want to confess about your shopping spree(s), check out the site; the stories are really funny.
here’s more information about the contest:

eventful weekend @ 10:44 pm
come tomorrow, the fam is starting back on weight watchers. we haven’t paid a lot of attention to what we’ve been eating, so it’s back to the healthy cooking and the incorporating of exercise into daily activity.
atlanta was fun this weekend. saturday evening, annie, matt, jacob, jamey and i ate at doc chey’s and then went to cafe intermezzo, where my glasses broke in half when i tried to polish the lenses with my shirt. ugh! i have to get new ones today. i stayed at annie’s newly-built townhouse…it was gorgeous! sunday, we all went to junkman’s daughter in little five points, where i finished christmas shopping for beeka. and wandered around for awhile. then we drove back to valdosta, and here we are, watching orange county on tbs.
as for class, the end is finally in sight. i’m hoping to have all A’s this semester. we’ll see how it goes!

the final countdown @ 12:01 am
4.5 hours till i have to be up. i’m not looking forward to the drive to macon, but i’m certainly excited about atlanta. i’ve missed mark and annie something awful.
well, i’m all set for tomorrow. i’ve got my gay man, cash, gas, affordable auto insurance, coffee, and lots of exciting plans. i hope i get a lot of christmas shopping done while i’m up there. i’m stoked!
and some random thoughts before bedtime:
jackie from roseanne is on one of those “help feed a child” commercials. ridiculous.
the circle scene i just saw from the last ever christmas episode of that 70’s show was really funny.

the plan @ 10:39 am
jacob and i decided last night that since this biological warfare is set to occur in 4 years and since the aztec calendar’s been purporting 2012 as the end of the world for thousands of years now, we might as well piss away whatever money we’ve got and just travel. and if the world doesn’t end in 2012 or 2013, then we’ll get a little crew together and make a porno (thanks, zack & miri, for the idea) for money. regardless of how this turns out, we’ve decided we should make a youtube channel and become famous that way. i mean, look at half the people who are famous because of youtube. they do something weird and dumb and bam, they’re famous. why can’t we do that, too? i mean, we could dress jacob and andy up in tuxedos and do some ridiculously lame james bond thing and maybe it’d take off. iiii dunno.
i say all this in jest, of course, but really, when you think about it, who knows if we’ll live or die tomorrow? why SHOULDN’T i just pack up my stuff and GO somewhere? because of money, that’s why. because we’re all worried about money and finances. what if i die tomorrow and i’ve still got money that i could’ve used to travel? that would suck. i’d at least like to leave this country one time before i die. sometimes i think it might be beneficial to know the future just so we could put together plans to enjoy life to its fullest before we kick the bucket.
anyway. um, bibliography time? yes? sigh.
another quote @ 12:05 am
“y’know, it’s so cold outside, we could get a pet penguin. ya know how cool that would be?” -jacob
“that thing is ugly. it’s as ugly as your heart.” -not to jacob
well, there’s supposed to be a biological attack in 2013 or by 2013 or whatever the news said. maybe those aztecs were onto something.
the economy is now officially in a recession, but britney spears is yet again the star of the news. okay, so yeah, i’m guilty of watching her “documentary” on MTV when it premiered, but really now, does our country REALLY think her life is more important than the economy?
in other news, carli sue is a BITCH. we put a muzzle on her the other night. pictures of the event are on facebook.

it’s 39 degrees @ 07:45 pm
and jacob and i are sitting in his studio outside, singing along to the killers while he paints and i type up this bibliography. it’s surprisingly cozy in here. yes, you should be jealous. soon, we’re going to buy stuff for soup, make it, and then take some to beeka in the printshop. i love our little family so much.
