Think My Thoughts

One thing I love about my job is that they're good to us with holidays. We get half days before holiday weekends, and we get Friday after Thanksgiving off, and we get out at 1 on Fridays in the summer. So, that's exciting. And today I used the (gorgeous) day wonderfully.

I decided to start Christmas shopping. And I left work and I got on the T - and I realized I had no idea what I was going to get people. I asked my sister yesterday what she wanted (after sending her a list of 10 or so things I wanted - talk about selfish!) and she said

Betsy: I would love anything you got me
EVen if you made it
Esp if you made it
Because you are my sister and i love you
not for material goods

That's gross.

So, I ventured to the mall with Christmas music playing on my iPod and I just didn't know what to get people. So I got myself some eyeshadow, a kit-kat with a snowman on it who looks afraid I am going to eat him, and a coffee and walked away from the mall. I thought "how long does it take to walk to the T?" and I learned that it takes the entire length of the song "Bombs Over Baghdad" to walk from the CambridgeSide Galleria to the Community College T stop.

Then I started thinking about Thanksgiving. The other day Evan and I were talking and he said, "What are you thankful for?" and our conversation went like this:

Evan: I'm thankful for sharks! and Jet packs! and bricks of coke!
me: and lord voldemort
i am thankful for ... tylenol
Evan: Herion balls and acid tablaturew
turkey prostitutes
me: kittens and puppies
Evan: and awesomeness!
4:02 PM me: the sweet smell of honey dew
Evan: Mountain DEW!

A couple of years ago there was a snowstorm close to Thanksgiving. Betsy and I had to walk down to Hollywood Video over snow banks and through ice slides and now.. it's like 50 degrees out and it has barely snowed yet in Boston.

So now I'm thinking about the end of the world...
