Christmas Carols

There’s something about the radio stations that normally play music I like (ex. 80s) playing Christmas Carols really really gets on my nerves. I’ll turn on the radio expecting Journey and instead I get a butchered version of Silent Night! Even if it’s not a bad version of the song it’s still not what I thought I was getting into. It’s like with food. It’s like Fritos are good, but if you’re expecting fine cuisine it is just frustrating.

And now for the bomb-shell. I don’t really like most Christmas Carols. *gasp* They have weird lyrics and disturbingly long held notes. It’s just not pleasing to the ears. I’m not saying all are bad. Just the vast majority of them.
98.5 I give you clearance you do it every year, but everyone else: PLAY THE STUFF I WANT…

No matter how much I’ve been trying to persuade myself that I’m not, I just have to accept the fact that I’m spending my college fund on books. The first minute I scrounge up just enough money to buy a book I’m already scouring amazon or trying to convince my mother to drive me to one of the few remaining book stores in town. It isn’t like I’m deluding myself or anything. I know I’m doing it and I just can’t stop. I’ll walk into the book store and that’ll be the end of that. I’m leaving with a book if it kills me. One does not simply leave the bookstore without a fresh book in hand.

Books are like a drug to me. The old book smell, oh yeah. You can seriously get high off that stuff. I’m sure if you waited long enough you would see me walking furtively over to my bookshelf, pulling one out, flipping through its pages, and inhaling like there is no tomorrow.

It worries me that once I’m out of the house, can drive, and have a steady income I’ll still be living out a pathetically meager existence because I’ll be spending all my dough on the precious pulp. And what’s more you won’t be able to move around in my house! I’ll have my own A&E special: Confessions of a Book Hoarder. Ohh… I can see it know…

I need to spend more time at the library.

Disease and Holiday Cheer

So for about 4 days I've been sick with something that is causing my tonsils to swell to unimaginable sizes and my nose to just stop functioning. Sooo... I've been doing a whole lot of nothing. Mostly I've been lying around going on Youtube and Memebase, watching cheesy romantic comedies, hacking/ nose-blowing, and staring at myself in the mirror wondering how come my hair only looks that good when I'm about to take a shower or not going to see anyone for days. So far it hasn't been enjoyable.

My Girl Scout buddies came over yesterday and I was so desperate for company I was hopping up and down even in my state of disease. And because I love them dearly I had to print out pictures of skulls and crossbones and label everything I came into contact with.

So right now I'm living for those moments when I haven't already heard that hilarious Stephen Wright quote on Youtube and the anticipation of many presents in my near future.

Happy Holidays!
