how i can’t wait to not leave the house


iTunes and I aren’t getting along this week. Fortunately it’s not stopping iSaac from giving me my awesome tunes, but I can’t burn any CDs and I’m a quest–no… a mission to fix this problem so I can share in my musical joy with others who’d like a copy of one of a kind mixes apparently only I know how to mix. But let that not stop me from continuing my trek of trailers I adore. Even though it’s the holiday season, you’d think I’d do something festive for my friPod iPick. HA! I probably would, but no.

I’d also lament about my job’s recent layoffs and I’d like to thank God for sparing my job when a few people I know were let go. Yeah, this bad economy is hitting close to home for everyone. It also gave me yet another boost, or a push, or an increase of motivation to complete a script or two ASAP. With that, I began the script for “The Writing Retreat” (working title until I find the symbols I’m looking for). So you can believe I do count, appreciate and cherish each and every blessing I have in my life. The holiday season has nothing to do with it, I’ve always been like that.

How about an honorable mention? Fall Out Boy’s newest album is indeed pretty enjoyable. I also recently acquired The Roots latest effort but I haven’t listened to it. It takes about 48 hours for me to move on from something new that I like. Sometimes longer. Speaking of newness, I now have Seinfeld season 5. Yes yes y’all! Oh, and to accompany it, Scene It: Seinfeld Edition. I don’t want to play it yet because I only have 4 seasons of supreme knowledge. I also don’t have many people to play with me. :o( Nevertheless, it’d be a game well enjoyed soon enough.

Lastly, New England is finally getting REAL snow. A good ole’ fashioned snow storm. It just started as I type. I’ll brush up on my photography skills and post a few “Christmassy” photos later. And by later I mean hopefully by or before Monday.

But so far, my vacation has been everything I dreamed. Falling asleep in the living room at 10pm and waking up to this a few hours later…

To help put you in the frame of mind I was in, I woke up around 2:30-2:45 and remained severely puzzled for the next minute as I recovered from groggy confusion and waked-upness. Really, it was a massive “what… the… stank!?” moment for me and I was a little too nervous about going back to sleep at that point. But I eventually came to my senses and changed the channel to something familiar, then went to bed… only I couldn’t fall asleep so I watched a movie while I ate a bowl of Cocoa Pepples, ground beef and a bag popcorn (not all together… but yes, those were consumed in the span of 3 hours).

And today I ventured to the Mart and my local DVD rental chain and encountered disgustingly long lines everywhere. I do not like it. These lines were preparations for a deadly last minute Christmas gifts, Christmas dinner and looks-like-we’ll-be-snowed-in food and movies. I think it’s a New England thing, but I could be wrong.

Well, I’m off to work on other written works, and eventually take a long winter’s nap until I’m called to shovel out the driveway like we’re about to go somewhere (we aren’t). We go in shifts just to keep up with the snow. It’s better to shovel less snow by shovelling more frequently, no? I better charge up iSaac.

    I’m glad you’re enjoying your holiday vacation. I have to go for one more shopping excursion and although I only need to make one or two stops, I know the stores get more crowded every day so I’m sort of dreading it. Ugh…
