Fun, Actually

Today I got together with some friends and actually had fun for a change. We bought Xmassy things and a tree and cafeinnated sugary goodness and then made the tree and their apartment all shiny and holidayified.

Jim was uber-nice to me and bought me peppermint hot chocolate and then gave me an early Christmas prezzie of fancy shampoo and conditioner because he knows I wouldn't buy stuff like that for myself usually. It's aromatherapy stuff and so now I feel all cool and minty fresh, kinda like gum but not sticky, which is a good thing cos I wouldn't want to be stuck in anyone's stomach for seven years. (Ew.) Anyhow it was kind of embarrassing because it took me a while to actually figure out how to open it and stuff. It is sad to realize that despite the fact that I have evolved thumbs that I am barely smarter than a recyclable plastic item.

Anyhow, I feel good and may even try to live dangerously and not take a pill so that I can sleep. I took half an Ambien last night and actually got an uninterrupted seven hours which was beautiful. Many thanks to Andrew for the envelope of stuff (even if as I've said before it's kinda sad I gotta get pills that work wrapped up in tissue in an envelope. As he says, this is why people cross the border to Canada).

I checked in with my Mom and my uncle's funeral is tomorrow. Anna was already there and David was driving up tomorrow. She says she is doing okay but she's tired of the funeralizing and wants it over already and she feels old. I'm just kind of bummed that this year she was thinking of maybe putting up Xmassy stuff (we haven't since my Dad died when I was 13, and he went into the hospital a couple weeks before Christmas and we'd everything out for him for when he came back, only he never did. The main thing I remember about that was me and my siblings unwrapping his gifts in January and wondering what to do with them.) and well I guess she's probably won't now. I'll get home on the 21st and plan to do my best to perk things up there, particularly if by doing so I can piss off The Cow.

Yup, so there's the now for ya. I'm trying to live in it. Oy. I'll do my best, keptin.
