1. …and yet here I am. Good evening, readers. Or should I say good mornin’? (We’ve talked the whole night through…)
2. Actual conversation:
thelivingroom76: i have the oddest combination of songs stuck in my head.
thelivingroom76: bob’s “boots of spanish leather” (lovely, lovely song)
thelivingroom76: (wait for it)
cynderella2004: ohhhhhhh dear.
thelivingroom76: take me to the chorus, indeed.
cynderella2004: i’m not holding out for a “boots of spanish leather (timbaland remix)” anytime soon. anytime at all, actually.
thelivingroom76: someone probably has, somewhere.
thelivingroom76: it might be kind of difficult
thelivingroom76: “BoSL” not having a chorus and all
thelivingroom76: does that mean bob won’t be taking timbaland anywhere?
cynderella2004: most likely. 🙂
thelivingroom76: “i’m bringin’ leather back…”
thelivingroom76: (that almost sounds wrong, doesn’t it)
cynderella2004: i smell a hit…
cynderella2004: oh man, uncontrollable giggles
thelivingroom76: take me to the non-existent chorus!
3. So, in a weird twist of fortune (due to my own stupidity, per the usual–long story ;)), I’m working at Target, not The Container Store. It’s not so bad. At least I actually get to be awake during the day, I know what I’m doing, I know a lot of the people…not so bad at all. Or something. 🙂
4. Shout-out to the inimitable Rachel E.–my break is pretty good, relatively slow. Hope yours is good, too.
5. I can’t believe Christmas is on Monday–I feel like I’m not really prepared for it, in any sense of the word. Mentally, emotionally, materially (I still don’t have all my shopping done…), or spiritually, for that matter. I don’t feel like I’m dwelling on the Incarnation as much as I should be. I mean, it’s all grace, anyway, but much of the time it just doesn’t feel real. But thank God, it’s not contingent about how I feel. And that’s fine. He’s near to me even if I don’t feel like it.
6. Umm. Reader survey:
a) What’s the best Christmas memory you have?
b) What’s the oddest Christmas present you’ve ever received?
c) What’s your least favorite Christmas song?
d) Mulled apple cider, hot chocolate, or eggnog?
