I love how everyone else right now has pictures of beautiful Christmas decorations, and I'm once again like, "Look at my messy room!" And introducing my beautiful 80s burnt orange carpet.
Man, ducklings, my cup overfloweth!
Actually, that probably wasn't the correct usage of that phrase, since I'm really going to talk about the things I have to do instead of my blessings. Not that I don't have blessings, I have tons. I just don't want to talk about them. I mean, it's good to talk about blessings and everything, just not terribly interesting. Yeah, you're right. Stopping.
Also, I very much welcome female ducklings as well.
Why don't I just give you a list? I'm pretty good with lists.
Things I have to do:
-practice that song for church I've irresponsibly neglected. it's kinda dull. sshhhh.
-finish unpacking that suitcase above which has sat open on my floor since I arrived (days ago)
-write the essay for my Peruvian Social Reality class for which I interviewed a Hasidic rabbi (weeks ago)
-file those insurance papers for camera and cell phone which were stolen (months ago)
Things I want to do:
-read the books I got from the library yesterday. Are you shocked that I've never before read a whole Virginia Woolf novel?
-learn how to make Pisco sours. National booze of Peru. Or is that Chile? Let's all settle this over a nice Pisco sour.
-learn how to make oboe reeds without a teacher. Is there an app for that? Just kidding of course. I'm way too cheap to have a phone that can download apps.
So anyway, that's what I'm up to...and I've made a firm resolution not to spend much time on the internet/TV today. I'm not even going to make a sarcastic comment about that, because I'm getting in the mindset where I know I can do it. Si se puede. As if I'm a boxer before the big match.
There has gotta be a better metaphor here. Suggestions?
Also, I'm playing around with the design. It's not there yet. Be patient.
