So I have been taking the approach of my tweets counting as my end of day blogging now that the auto digest is working. There are, of course, things that don’t make it into tweets that I could blog about though.

Let’s see. Christmas is here and upon us now. It is Christmas eve and I have spent this one in the utmost capacity to go against Christmas by sitting around by myself and watching a movie. I did actually enjoy the movie, The Invasion. It kept my interest the entire time and had a good story line. I would recommend it.

I left work around one this afternoon and have pretty much already gone crazy with not knowing what to do. I really don’t think I can handle essentially a six-day weekend. There are four days left and I have a feeling they could be kind of long. My parents asked if I was coming down to open presents in the morning and I pretty much said no. One, if I do get up that early in the morning, I’m not planning on being in Fallbrook and two, what would I possibly do if I was there all day long? I suppose I would find something to do, but lounging around my own home sounds good to me. I guess I’ve really captured the spirit of the season now – I really want to be alone!

I had a craving for hot chocolate this morning and we had none in the office, so I took a road trip to the store and got some. I got all the fixings as well: whipped cream, cinnamon, peppermint syrup. If I may say so, we made some dang good hot chocolate this morning. Starbucks has nothing on us! We can leave out the part where I knocked over the DVD display at the checkout with my basket.

Batch surprised me this morning with the car charger for my iPhone that I had been eyeing. It has two USB ports so you can charge two things simultaneously and it comes with both an iPod cable and a standard mini USB, which will charge both of my phones. I can then also use it for headsets, my centro and whatever else charges through USB which seems to be more and more everyday.

I spent some time shopping after the temple on Tuesday, but really only got Susan taken care of. I don’t know what to get most of my close friends as I just don’t know what they could practically use. I think it is kind of sad when we get to that point in life where we either don’t know people well enough to think of something they could actually use or when they already have everything imaginable that doesn’t cost hundreds of dollars or more.

I ended up sending a package to Tara with a box of note-cards, cookies and a Target gift card. It looks like FedEx failed in their job on this mission, so on the bright side, I won’t have to pay for the overnight shipping costs. I am a bit frustrated that I worked so hard to rush and get the goodies to FedEx by the cutoff Tuesday though. If I wanted it to show up Friday, I could have taken my time and finished everything I wanted to do. Oh well. It is in Jacksonville, FL as of 1:15 this afternoon, they just didn’t get it to her. I hope she doesn’t think I forgot her tomorrow.

I just realized that if I had Christmas cards, I could work on sending those out tomorrow. But yeah, I haven’t even purchased those for this year yet! I have a feeling I’ll be hitting up a lot of sales on Friday, for both myself and for gifts!

I guess that’s about it for tonight. We’ll see what fun tomorrow brings.

Carino’s with Alison

Today was fairly quiet at the office. It was just Tara and I. I think we did a good job handling everything that kept coming in and got the stuff we needed to get done done. I got payroll done way before the deadline which is odd for me especially since I got a late start after going to the GT this morning to hook up an iPod and make iTunes happy.

So much for my quiet evening at home: Alison and I went out to Johnny Carino’s tonight. I was getting ready to leave the office when she called and I wasn’t sure what I was going to do since there were no dinner plans at home, so I was happy to hear from her. I had to spend some more time waiting at the office, but I got to clean some things up and go through some pictures to order prints from Costco. The prints won’t be ready till the morning, but at least I’m a step closer than I have been. I couldn’t believe the wait we found at Macaroni Grill, so I decided to call Olive Garden and Carino’s. The wait was about half the time it was at Mac, so we went there. I didn’t have lunch so i was stating and seriously ready for some food. The M&M’s could only take me so far.

Now I think I’m off to bed. I’m hoping to get up early enough for President Hinckley’s funeral in the morning and then am thinking about a trip to the temple. Maybe I’ll go early enough to enjoy an evening at home tomorrow… Maybe if I had the BYU channel I could watch the funeral from home instead of going to the stake center, but I don’t think I can justify $50/month for Dish or DirecTV just to get the BYU channel which I would probably watch about as much as I watch the other 200 TV channels I already have.
