mellicious: pink manicure (Xmas excess)
Rob's parents sent us some money, so with my portion I ordered a sleeve for my Kindle (this one) and the "Ultimate Edition" of Prisoner of Azkaban. (I have the Sorcerer's Stone one so I'd like to have the whole set, theoretically - at least for the movies I don't already have.) I doubt that this was really the best use of my money but oh well. I went to Sam's earlier; I should really stay out of there because it makes me want to buy videos, every time. I looked at that Harry Potter box and didn't buy it, but then when I got home and found the check, I caved. (Rob is a big enabler on video purchases, too, I have to say. Why does he encourage me?)

I also bought some Christmas cards because I can't find the ones I know I already have, and I know I won't get around to making many, if any. But I only bought one box, which won't be enough, anyway, even if I pare down my list. (Also, I just looked at the TUS list and, whoops, I wonder if the one to Ireland can make it in, what, 6 working days? Be interesting to see.)

I am feeling... well, not exactly Grinchy about the holidays, exactly, but I don't seem to be interested in doing much. I have wreaths on the balcony and the front door, and one of my mom's big nutcrackers sitting on the TV, but that's about it. No tree, no lights, none of that junk so far. Rob was making noises about getting a real tree, which I don't think we've done since the first year we were married. I saw some good-sized Norfolk pines in pots ("good-sized" = four feet or so) at the grocery store, I wonder if those are big enough to suit him? I think he just wants something with a tree smell, though, and I don't think Norfolk pines have that kind of smell to them, do they? Not that I can recall, anyway. (I guess I'll have to go and smell them and see.)


Oh, I forgot to say before that we finally went to see Easy A at the dollar movie on Sunday. (We've talked about going every weekend for a month or more.) I liked it more than I expected to, which is fairly high praise because I expected to like it. As usual, I can't really figure out how to describe why. For one thing, I thought it would stick to the whole "Scarlet Letter" theme a lot longer than it really did. Which is a good thing as far as I'm concerned.

I haven't done a silly meme thing in ages. So here you go:



You Are a Caramel Brulée Latte



You are sophisticated and classy. You tend to be more of a simple pleasures type of person.
You understand how important quality is, and you're not fooled by cheap knockoffs or imitations.
You are understated and elegant. You have a lot of natural grace, and it takes you far.
Your tastes and influences are a blend of new and traditional, high brow and low brow. You mix it all together beautifully!




Ha, sophisticated and classy, understated and elegant. Not really so much, but okay. Also I'm pretty sure I've never had a caramel brulee latte in my life. (Unless that was what that thing was that I got at Christmas a couple of years ago and then threw away. I remember that I didn't like it but I don't remember exactly what it was.) I drink lattes all the time, and actually there's one sitting next to the computer right now, but I like my lattes unadorned by syrups and cremes and such.

Also, the local Starbucks has a huge sign in front that says "OPEN CHRISTMAS DAY." Poor baristas.
