Stuff & Things 12/3

:: I thought about doing a vlog for this entry, but then I looked at myself in the mirror last night and decided against it.  I am interested in doing a vlog entry at some point.  But what should I talk about? I could never be as awesome as Matt Bellassai (see exhibit A below).

:: Yesterday was kind of a downer day. Even before the bad news about that horrific shooting in California hit, I was in a terrible mood. It just kind of built all day and then hit all at once. I hate days like that.  Some malbec, a manicure, and a good cry courtesy of "The Family Stone" helped a little.

:: I've finished two days of my Christmas movie advent calendar. I have to say, I look forward to getting home each day to see what my selection is.  This is pretty fun.

:: Somehow I've been roped into helping plan the holiday parties at both of my part-time jobs. Either I come across as a party animal or a good planner. Or maybe they just know I'm a sucker who can't say "no."

:: I'm so obsessed with the Demi Lovato album right now. "Father" is one of the most heart-wrenching, raw, and emotional songs I've heard in a long time. And I'm also really loving this track:

What's up with you this week?


  1. Saying no is a very important tool that has been wonderful for me in my adult life, especially my 30s. That's when I truly grasped it.

    A manicure always makes me feel better too. Sorry you had a crap day.

  2. Oh yes--I'm with you on the getting roped into stuff thing. I've started declining when something gives me that panicky "but I don't want to" feeling. The few moments of discomfort that I feel during the exchange are much easier for me to cope with than weeks and weeks of dread. And I totally agree--a glass of wine and a manicure definitely cure my bad days!

  3. Eh, I've been in a mood this week too. A good movie can usually help though!
    Good luck with party planning. I avoid that stuff :)

  4. I love your Christmas movie advent calendar! Demi is so amazing.

  5. Good luck with the Christmas party planning! And your advent calendar sounds so fun. I'm going to have to break out the xmas movies soon!
