Ho Ho Ho...

Today I made it to work in about 15 minutes. Normally about a 30 minute drive. I also got to park about 1 mile vs. 2 miles from the building. That just means everyone in the free world is off but me. Bah Humbug. I can't express how tired I am. And...how much it will suck working 2 jobs again. I only had 7 months break from it. Hi ho, hi ho, it's back to work I go. I drove to the town hall which is near the police station I'll work at, and it took me 45 minutes. How's that for a fun trip. It's only 15 min from my house. I'm just hoping I don't have to work many days after work like I did before. But not having weekends off will also suck. Let's face it, work sucks no matter how you look at it.

Speaking of looking, I was thinking the stupidest thing. Have you ever thought about how animals go their whole lives without seeing themselves? I mean sure, some of them look in the mirror, but most don't. Does that mean they think they look like whatever is around them? Do the cat's think their like me? Or the dog? It might seem like a silly thought, but if you really think about it, you could ponder it for a long while. Like Steve Martin in "The Jerk" "I'm not black??!!"

So I got all the pictures off my camera, but CP did something to the photo editing program I used on the computer. I no findie. So, I have to use stupid microsoft editor which blows. Hopefully I'll have some pics posted over the weekend. I love to make you wait. Like I think you are on pins and needles. Humor me. Some day...I'll have the internet, like real people do. Won't that be fun? I'll have no life, but by dandy I'll have a computer. I miss myspace. Is that sick or what?

So at work I've been officially let go on answering the phones. Not like it's that big a deal, we all answer them, and I ran the damn switchboard at that shithole I worked at for 7 years. But you get the stupidest questions. Not knowing where to send them sucks, but I know it comes with time. We're only suppose to deal with district managers, and vice presidents but we get many a disgruntled store employee, or customer. Have I mentioned how helpful I am?

What's for Christmas dinner? I usually make a turkey, or some sort of chicken bake. I think I'm making crock pot chicken, and homeade au gratin potatos. Hopefully get my brother to make a salad or lasagna or something from work. He also better bring the cookies. I might have opened a present the other night from my mom and sister, but I can't say for sure or they'll be mad at me. But if I did open a gift, it would be one of those nifty rubber baking dishes that you plop cake out of when you bake it. Since that is what it might be, I might make a cake.

Merry Christmas Everyone!! Hope santa brings you lots of goodies!!

Hope you have a Merry Christmas too. I am pretty much shot after shopping and geting all the food I am required to make. So between food and gifts I'm broke again. Now I have to pay some bills.

Let me know how things go with the silicone cake pan you may or may not have opened--I've been thinking of buying some of those for other people!
Oh, and that was a funny thought about the animals and what they think they look like. Honestly, that's what I like about animals--they're NOT concerned with their looks (or mine)! :)

Mm...au gratin potatoes. Mmm....Mmm..

I know I'm stuffed from our ham and potato dinner, but those sound awfully tasty! LOL
