Bowling League Thursday

We had our Christmas celebration at the bowling alley tonight and we got to bring in snacks and gifts. I forgot (again) to take a picture while I was at the bowling alley, but my dear friend Lisa brought me a huge tin of homemade candy so when I got home I did snap a picture of it. She is so awesome.

Night Out With Friends

I was lucky enough to get a chance to hang out with my great friends DJ & Jordi tonight. We went to eat at Galloway Station and then did some shopping at Barnes & Noble before topping off the evening with ice cream at Braums. It's always so relaxing to spend time with these two, they are the greatest.

Over the weekend, Charlie and Jessica gave me a copy of their school pictures so today I carried them to work and proudly displayed them on my cubicle walls. I can't believe how big they are getting.

Lunar Eclipse

This technically happened on Tuesday Dec. 21st, since it happened after midnight, but I haven't gone to bed yet so it's still Monday to me. I was at work so I didn't get to come outside and get as many phases as I wanted, but I'm pretty happy with what I did get.

My Favorite

I hadn't been down to Sunday dinner at Grandma's in a few weeks because I'm a slacker and because my schedule is just really screwed up right now. It's hard to make myself get up early and be there around noon when I know I've got to be at work at midnight that night and stay awake and functional until 8:00am on Monday morning. But every time I'm not there I get several calls and messages about how much they missed me and will I be there next week. How can you ignore that? I had to go see everyone. So I made it there just a few minutes before lunch was served and then hung out afterwards to play Boggle and watch football. Suddenly, several hours after lunch was over with, I got a craving for chocolate chip cookies. They are my favorite cookie in the world and for some reason, the people I hang out with never make them. No bakes are being made constantly and peanut butter cookies show up now and again. But never chocolate chip. When I mentioned they sounded good, Grandma said she had a bag of chocolate chips I could use to make some if I wanted. So I whipped up a batch real quick. They were good and they hit the spot... although my cousins have about a bazillion children between them so I only got 2 cookies. But it was fun making them and it did help with my craving. And I have to give a big shout-out to Kyle and Emma who did most of the work mixing them up.

How The Hell Do You Wear This Thing?

Yesterday my cousin Sabrina came up to Springfield to do some Christmas shopping and she stopped by to pick me up so we could spend some time together. We had a good day and I think she got a lot of shopping accomplished. I do feel bad that I started getting pretty tired (she picked me up after I got off work so I was getting loopy from lack of sleep) but I hung in there and hopefully didn't ramble too much. At one of the stores we stopped at I found a cute winter hat for only $5. I see lots of people wearing this type of hat and I was excited I found one that I liked.

This morning I got a chance to cut the tags off of it and model it for myself to make sure I didn't look like a dork before I wore it out in public. Unfortunately, I do look like a dork. How the hell do you wear this thing? Is my head just a funny shape or what? If I wear it where it feels comfortable, I'm a conehead. Did I just waste $5.

I used to be on my way to work during sunrise, now I'm smoking a cigarette on my last break before going home. Either way, it's still pretty.
