Pardon me while I vibrate with glee.
Momswag got.
Consisted of:
  • 120GB Red Zune with art and inscription engraving on the back. It is such an awesome little device! It does so much crap AND the headphones are comfortable!
  • Super Stitches Knitting, aka a stitch dictionary! YES. I needed one of these SO BAD. I've been wanting to try my hand at designing and this is exactly what I needed!
  • Rachel Ray's Big Orange Book. Shut up. I like her food. And I mean, the idea of getting a meal done in 30 minutes is infinitely appealing.
  • That TY teddy bear from Borders named Chaucer. I am actually gonna leave that as his name because it's awesome. :D
Mom got a set of books from a series she reaaaaally likes, and Dave got her The Truth by Terry Pratchett. It is her favorite Discworld book. (I'm the one who actually owns most of the Discworld books, she just borrows them.)

Tomorrow I make fudge in the morning to take over to his parents' in the evening. Then then next day is Christmas with MY family (a whole damn crowd, which should be nice, if exhausting) and then the next day I fall over and don't move till the evening. :D

Have finally figured out where a dining table would go if we got one. :D Hooray! Now I need a cheap table and some chairs. Though to start off with we could just use the chairs we have and just get a table. Mostly we need one so people can come over and play board games without having to sit on the floor. Plus maybe it would be nice to cook for people sometimes. And so I don't have to set up my sewing machine on the floor, oh my poor back.

Christmas is coming! With all the resultant busyness. Dave and I are looking forward to the 26th and after wards, where the most pressing thing we have to do is spend our gift cards. We have not had much time to ourselves lately and it is sad.

Happy holiday wishes to all and enjoy whatever holiday you are celebrating!

Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to everybody! :D Hope your holidays are going well. One of these years I suspect my drive to enjoy CHristmas to the hilt will return, but until then Christmas just sneaks up on me. Just seems like any other day, and then I remember it's not. Ah well. So things go. Also I am totally hooked on Mass Effect. Anything that has THAT much worldbuilding is awesome. Anyway, on to the goods!

Swag:
  • Harmony Options needle set from Knitpicks
  • Toaster oven
  • 50 minute massage
  • Mineral-makeup
  • exciting tea
  • soap
  • bath-spa set, orchid scented
  • hoodie (lightweight)
  • handmade pillow from the middle east
  • JoAnn gift card. ($30)
  • Dell 1110 Laser Printer
  • tomorrow we go to buy me a PSP.

Woo! Now I'm off to contemplate making something with the toaster oven, though I know not what. It's all shiny and new and begs to be used. I rather like the idea in the manual book of english-muffin-pizzas. :D

well, that's it. I call it quits. Those presents which require hand dexterity and wrist movement will not be finished by Christmas. Why? Because not only have my hands been aching, but last night my wrist hurt so badly I was reduced to whimpering in bed, unable to move or even really think. I have a couple of mostly done rice-warmers that I will try and get sewn up, but beyond that I am done. It's frustrating and upsetting, but there's nothing I can do about it. I'm not going to hurt myself further to get things done, and hopefully people will understand.

now I'm gonna get away from the computer since this hurts and I'm gonna read until the mail comes and hope Mass Effect comes today.

Knee is doing better today. I still have it wrapped so I'm stumping about with a mostly-non-bendy knee, but when I do bend it, there is less pain. Week to Christmas and I still have unfinished presents. I think I can get things done without hurting myself. We shall see. I am in an absolutely FOUL mood. Haven't had an appetite since yesterday afternoon, and I have that deep-down urge to just sit down and wail. I want, more than anything, to sit and watch my comfort movies, which consists of the extended LOTR trilogy and I gave those back to Mom. *cry*

Due to sudden financial bonus (aka my aunt insists on paying me per hour when I come over to help with computer stuff) I managed to both hide money away for christmas presents and have enough left over to get me a couple neato thingies.

The question of the moment is whether or not I buy refills for my tea stocks. It's getting low over there in the drawer. More of the earl grey, I think, and maybe I should try some of the other greens? I just love the sensha so much.

Finally making headway through the inner pocket of Percy. So close!

Status of christmas presents - except for the soap I haven't made yet, which will be made tomorrow, everything is boughtten or gotten. Wrapping has begun. HOORAY.

I am using this icon to purposfully terrify my friends. I am becoming sickish, and I am still wired from "OH GOD STILL NEED TO BUY PRESENTS!" Now it's just "OH GOD I RAN OUT OF WRAPPING PAPER!"
