Stuff & Things  
~ I am officially on break from school...whoo-hoo! Writing time? I am a little afraid, which is dumb, but also excited. Space pirates, oh how I have missed you!

~ Christmas, I am SO ready for you! Except for the wrapping part. and the cooking part. Okay, maybe I am not as ready as I thought. Oh, and I still have to sew the cloth napkins for my mom's present box. But I'm mostly ready.

~ HDTV is SO FREAKING AWESOME! Is it silly how much I love watching my shows in beautiful high definition? I'm watching a Criminal Minds repeat right now, and marveling at the detailing of Garcia's necklace. Once Upon a Time is beautiful in HD, although the horrible black wig Snow wears in Fairytale-land is even more horrible. I mean, really. They couldn't have found a decent wig?? Anyway, the rest of the show is very pretty. The Tivo still stands as best Xmas present this year. Even the husband thinks so, and he is not the TV fan I am.

~ The mid-season finale to Terra Nova was actually kind of awesome. I think the show is starting to hit its stride...I almost have the urge to write fic!

~ Funny husband story: he and his brother, who is visiting for the holidays, stayed up ALL NIGHT last night, just so they could finish Gears of War 3 on insane, and get some kind of special ghost protocol skin for their weapons....which, after they got it at 6:30 this morning, after an entire night of playing, they admitted looked pretty awful. But they're using it anyway, because, you know...15 straight hours on insane! Poor boys. Mark even had me make him coffee, and he hates coffee. Silly man.

~ I am drinking the champagne my Mom got us last year for Xmas, because Mark doesn't like champagne, and I happen to like those drinks I can't remember the name of, that mix peach puree and champagne together...so I am happily buzzed, with no homework to do, and no jewelry to make. Well, I am making earrings for Mark's Aunts for Xmas, but I'm waiting on an order of settings to get here. Which is also why I haven't done the drawing for the pairs I'm giving away yet. Should be in the next couple of days.

~ Mmmm. I'm off for more champagne. Night everyone! Happy Christmas.

Current Mood: tipsy

What?? So...no more Terra Nova this year? :( *sad face*

I hope it was popular enough to warrant a full second season.
