Christmas music, I secretly love you!

leave a comment »

I am so tempted to flood my iPod with Christmas music. A total waste of money, I know. I’m hoping Starbucks will have some freebie Christmas music soon, doubtful though.

At one point in my life I hated Christmas music. Retail will do that to you. But then last year, because of my store’s location, we didn’t play Christmas music. My work is in a very Jewish neighborhood. I sort of missed Christmas music for the first time in my life.

Now that we are moving into a house, I’m all stoked for the season! I can go into my office and geek out over all of my magazines and reciepes and dream about all the awesome things I could do but won’t.

The one thing I love about iPods are I can have all the craptastic music I want on it and no one else really has to listen to it but me.  Yes me, I could listen to anything and you’d not notice… I’d just have to live with sore ears for a few hours after geeking out over things from NPR and The New Yorker.

I have to say…

Backing into a early 80s Volvo is pretty much like backing into a tank.


Civic=in need of a new bumper.

Sorry car… I’ll have to wait until after the first of the year to get you all fixed up. But, at least when I do, that old small scratch will finally be gone as well. After almost 5 years, you need a little TLC any way.

I love ending vacation with a cold. Who doesn’t? I gonna sit here with my Umcka cold sipping stuff and some Breath Deep tea. Um, I guess if I am fighting a cold I should be smart and put on socks.

Whistler was nice, as usual. My parents were my parents, as usual…. Going down the water slide in the family pool was more fun than I would have imagined. It snowed 2 days after we left and rained the whole time we were there. I like Canada. I wish I could take a week off every month.

Kevin’s sister and her husband are coming up this weekend. Her husband is going to help Kevin wire the whole house for cable and internets. Hopefully his sister and I can get a chance to go out and do some girly stuff like go window shopping. I’d be happy just to get out and drool over stores full of Christmas decorations.

I have 78 podcasts to listen to, I best get started on them!!

That Burt’s Bees lip balm than managed to get washed and dried… yeah it also managed not to ruin all of my clothes it was washed with!!! Score, we can’t afford to replace much of anything right about now.
