MIA

I've been MIA lately. Sorry. I've just got lots on my mind and little time to jot any humorous anecdotes down. Here's a taste of the crap flying through my head these days:
  • Oh my God, I have a completely new job. Where do I start?
  • Oh my God, I'm so behind on Christmas shopping.
  • I'm so clueless on world events these days. How do I catch up?
  • Which Presidential candidate will screw me the least?
  • I can't wait to see Sweeney Todd.
  • Why does Sexyback still make me shake my tail feather at the office Holiday party?
  • Damn! 3 hours of dancing and my knees still ache.
  • I'm getting old.
  • I think I like Alicia Keys now... what changed?
  • I wanna crochet.
  • I wanna read.
  • How can I avoid going to a mall?
  • I saved 2 cents per gallon today by filling up my tank this morning.
  • How will I find time to get to the post office tomorrow?
  • Only one week 'til vacation! YEA!!
  • When will my favorite boss get promoted so I can work for her again?
  • Why am I so tired?
  • Oprah officially annoys me.
  • I miss The Daily Show
  • Where should I put all of the new wrapping paper?
  • I'm relieved that 9-5 meeting on Tuesday was cancelled but I'm pissed that I did all of that prep work for nothing.
  • He should have listened to us last week when we told him Tuesday was no good.
  • When will he go away so we can go back to being an efficient, decisive organization with direction and decent communication?
  • Am I becoming sexist because I prefer to work the women in my division?
  • Do I really prefer working with women or is it just a coincidence that the only people who bug me at work happen to be men?
  • Who was the weird guy at the Holiday party last night dancing all over the place?
  • Who was the tramp doing back bends on the dance floor?
  • I'm glad he said "Sorry, I'm out of dollar bills."
  • Was it inappropriate to mention all of the workplace theft to the big boss?
  • Did my hair get caught in that chair or did the big boss seriously pull my hair during the update?
  • Is it possible for a friend to be even too gay for me?
  • What should I get for mom, dad, bro, SIL for Christmas?
  • I'm so bummed that the CD case she gave me was empty. It's possible I might actually like Mary J. Blige.
  • Sweet Jesus, am I becoming an R&B/Hip Hop fan? *shudder*
  • I'm cold.
  • How late can I sleep in tomorrow?
  • How much can I pack into Sunday so the rest of the week is easier?
  • I have to figure out what I'm getting and when those stores open so I can be finished as early as possible.
  • Should I go to work on the 24th so I don't have to count it as a vacation day?
  • I really don't want to see my dumb Grandfather at Christmas. Maybe his sight is finally going and he won't notice me avoiding him.
  • What was with that weird Christmas card?
  • Should I keep the grey throw or exchange it for another color?
  • Are the Packers on TV this weekend?
  • I'm so disappointed in those moronic baseball players.
  • I have GOT to get my Christmas cards out this weekend.
  • Was it rude to mention what a great idea I thought it was to send gifts from Restoration Hardware to somebody who has finished his shopping for us?
  • What the hell am I supposed to buy for co-workers? Which ones do I buy for? Why didn't I mention the "no gifts" rule earlier?
  • When will I find time to pick up my newly framed stuff?
  • Why did I spend so much on them?
  • The tree smells nice.
  • I have to return those Netflix movies.
  • Why don't I have Showtime on Demand so I can watch Dexter?
  • What should I wear tomorrow?
  • I like this song.
  • I need to pick out a new calendar. It's probably too late to get one I like.
  • This Writer's Strike needs to settle. It's going to effect my '08. :(

  • Should I book the January trip now?
  • How can I help her calm down?
  • It's too much.
  • I'm lucky to have such easy "problems".
  • I shouldn't complain.
  • This post is too long and boring for anyone to actually read through.
  • Oh well...
That's why I haven't been able to focus and come up with an interesting post. These thoughts won't leave me alone. Sorry to drag you into it.

Not too long or boring for me. I read every single thing you wrote. I told you that card was a bit off! And, I agree, we should all take the time to enjoy the pretty things. Sometimes they are the most important things!
