  • I didn't end up going to the mall yesterday, go me! I did go to Frog and Toad and picked up a couple of pretty presents. I still have a few more little things to pick up. I'll wrap most of what I have tonight. Yes, I know it's two days before Christmas. I work well under pressure, or something. I have to be on a plane to Block Island at 10:00 Christmas Day, which means I have to leave here at eight, so I'm going to have to have everything wrapped and ready to go by tomorrow night AND I have to work this weekend. Procrastination sucks. I'd say I should be more like patchfire and get everything done in plenty of time, but then she'd gloat and wouldn't be pretty, not pretty at all, so I won't.

  • I've actually managed to go the entire Holiday season so far without setting foot inside the mall. I don't mind going there once in a while (hey, the closest Newbury Comics is at the mall), but bleh. It's just so in-your-face marketing, especially at Christmas. I pretty much hate all marketing at Christmas. It's all Abraham Lincoln's fault for sticking Thanksgiving where it is (and anyway, isn't Thanksgiving a harvest festival? oops, wrong rant) so that Americans can have an encapsulated two-month-long Holiday Season with, yay, plenty of time for lots of shopping? RickafrakkaLincoln.

  • I just had Burger King apple pie. For breakfast lunch, which reminds me yet again that there is no food in the house. This is the way it's going to be until after Christmas, unfortunately. I might have time to go grocery shopping, but no inclination whatsoever. There's a myriad of places to pick up good, cheap food around here, and no, Burger King isn't one of them. That's a place to pick up bad, cheap food (and I use the term loosely here). The pie was just in the refrigerator, so, um. Yeah.

  • I'm going to do the picture meme thing piecemeal, so keep suggesting things. So far only peacey has asked me a question, so do that one, too.

  • Dear Paul Gross,

    Congratulations on winning the 2006 W00bie of the Year award. Don't even try to deny it, because you can't.

    Love and warm cocoa with marshmallows by a cozy fire,

    Me

    bjohan57 is also a w00bie for giving me the link. *g*

  • patchfire and peacey, you'll be getting your presents after Christmas because I suck I have excellent procrastination skillz. Which is why I'm making a practically pointless LJ post instead of wrapping presents.

Ick! You made me read the Toronto Sun! *bleaches self*

Still a lovely article, despite the usual insane ramblings of Sun reporters. And Paul Gross is truly the best. man. ever. Can he do NOTHING wrong?

I feel your procrastination pain - I often find myself at the final hour, realizing there's no way I can get everything done.

And confession time: despite the smug post I wrote last night - I have just realized I never bought anything for my husband OMG!

I dunno why he's always telling me I take him for granted...
geez.

The Toronto Sun looks an awful lot like the British Sun. I wonder, are they the same publisher?

And Paul Gross is truly the best. man. ever. Can he do NOTHING wrong?

He can't make music videos. Trust me on this one. I was going give you a YouTube link, but I can't bring myself to do that to you.

geez.


It's okay, just show him this article.

The article - it's wonderful! I have saved the link, as well as sending it to my best friend. She's been struggling with her ADD partner who is in complete denial. He won't get treatment and she finds herself constantly nagging him. I can see all the trouble this is going to cause, but she is a controlling type and his inattention drives her batty.

So you may have just saved a marriage! Gold star to primrose!!

And the Toronto Sun, I don't think it's the same owners, but based on the same premise, for sure. Page 3 bimbo, etc. Except in Toronto of course, they don't show teh boobies like they do in the Brit papers.

There's a chain of 'em. They do especially well in redneck Alberta. Calgary Sun and Edmonton Sun. They wouldn't last a week in Vancouver, thank Bog.

OK, enough about me. Now you talk about me! (j/k)

Good luck with the shopping, working, cleaning, decorating, packing, and travelling. ;D Hope I didn't forget something.

I don't gloat. I merely enjoy my free time.

Okay, so in reality, it just means more time to entertain MIL. :P Happy now?

That said... you going to be around tonight? Must gush birth stuff at you.

I lost internet last night thanks to my t00by son. I got it back this afternoon thanks to my other, not-so-t00by son. Which is why I wasn't online after work.

I have to work tonight and then wrap presents, so I dunno what'll be up when I get home.

Tonight, I hope I'll be asleep when you get home. I've been up late (for me) the past three nights and busy busy busy during the day. MIL yesterday, blah blah blah.

*hugs* Merry Christmas, dear one.

I have no idea what a w00bie is, but if Paul is one and I am one, then it can't be too bad...can it????????? It sounds like one of those furry creatures in a George Lucas film.

Apparently the term is specific to the Harry Potter fandom, but it's high time it spread its wings and got more use elsewhere.

There are a few definitions, but I define it as someone who does something so incredibly sweet and does it so adorably that you want to hug the stuffing out of them and bake them cookies. In my experience, they tend to be men.

Stephen King is a good example (he usually gets my w00bie of the Year vote *g). So is the Dalai Lama and Sir Paul McCartney.

In our next installment of Fandom Slang 101, we'll discuss the varying definitions of the word "t00b". Paul is often one of these, too. Golf!Callum absolutely is, yessiree.
