The 12 Days of Christmas....

Because Jay and I are impatient, sometimes slightly excitable people, we decided to break from the "normal" Christmas tradition that is held by most people (that is, opening gifts on Christmas Day) and instead, we're giving each other one gift a day. This so far is working out very well, and I think in the long run it will make us appreciate each gift more, rather then getting overwhelmed with lots of new stuff all on Christmas Day!

To date, I've given him this nifty little Static Electricity Eliminator, (since he is ALWAYS getting shocked. It was by far the coolest thing I've ever seen, and useful.), and a "gamer" iron-on patch. Tomorrow he's getting a Ninja Tips For Healthy Living Poster that he was ogling at the store today.

He's given me a pink cushy case for my cell phone, a new power cord for my laptop (it's technically his old cord, but he doesn't use it and it is SO AMAZING to be back on my laptop again!) and today, a new nose ring. It's 14 k gold and I'm PRETTY sure there's a real diamond in it. (The front of the package says "diamond" and the back says .0225 CT. Any jewelers out there familiar with that terminology?) Either way, it's cute and it's in my nose :D

Had a pretty good day today... it started with coffee and muffins (I need to remember how good it feels just to get out of the house early in the morning when I'm NOT going to work. Lack of money leaves me cooped up during the weekends and even something as simple as walking to get coffee in the early morning sunlight can make me appreciative of a day off), included some wandering around Northampton (in the freezing cold, unfortunately) and awesome Mexican food. Sold back some DVDs and VHS tapes at Turn It Up! and made almost $40, which was supposed to assist in my monthly car payment but instead went mostly to Christmas presents and food.

Came home and there was an Elle magazine waiting for me in my mailbox... I had won a free subscription MONTHS ago and it seemed like it was never going to come, but finally it is here!

Tomorrow I need to finish up some studying for my Mass Communication and Audio Production finals, and hopefully get some sewing done. After Monday, I am finished with this semester! Huzzah!

All for now.
