mellicious: pink manicure (Xmas excess)
I have been feeling kind of crappy this afternoon - I don't know what that's about. I hope to hell I'm not coming down with something. That would be very bad timing. (But par for the course, really.) Rob was watching the MST3K Santa Claus Conquers the Martians earlier and I couldn't really get into it (imagine that) and I went in the bedroom to read for a minute and fell asleep, which I never do this time of day. Of course, that could be why I feel groggy, couldn't it? We'll see, I guess - if I'm really getting sick I'll know it soon enough.

We went in Wal-Mart last night and it was oddly empty. I mean, not actually empty, just not crazily full like you would think. My only theory is that it's sort of the deep breath between the early shoppers, who are done now, and the late shoppers, who will start their shopping this weekend. (Hey, they have all the way til the end of the day Monday, after all!)

(Oh, looking for a last-minute gift? How about a Segway? Seriously, I got a "last-minute gifts" e-mail that had this listed in it. Only $4700!!)

Anyway, I went in Target after I got off work this afternoon - it was not terribly busy either. I don't know what's up with that, but oh well, it was nice. The only gift I bought there was Letters from Iwo Jima for my dad. (Let's see if he has any wisecracks about it being in Japanese.) I went in the quilt store after that, to buy something for my aunt, but nothing appealed to me too much. Also, one of the employees did say hello to me when I came in but they proceeded to ignore me after that. I probably would have bought something if somebody had been helping me but I wandered around for a while and then walked out, instead, giftless. I hope I get inspired about what to do about that gift because I'm running out of time. We may be looking at a gift certificate. (Or a Segway, who knows?)

I also went in Marshall's but by that time I was thoroughly disgruntled and didn't buy anything there, either. Then I came home, hungry and thinking I was going to have a hamburger for lunch, only to find that someone (hint: not me) had stuck all the hamburger in the house in the freezer. I gave up at that point and ordered a pizza. Forget any semblance of the diet... although the diet pretty much went out the window this morning when not one but two of my co-workers came in with donuts, anyway. So I played GuildWars and waited for the pizza guy to come. A highly productive afternoon, this one.

Oh, I got several more e-mails from my sister, one of which contained the information that she's not coming to Houston after all. I can't say I'm really surprised, but anyway, we are off the hook on trying to meet her on Sunday. At this point, I think that's probably for the best.
