Monday, November 26, 2007 hours in a car alone will make anyone crazy

This morning I got up (read: my parents woke me up) at 7 am and made me drive back to school. Okay, they didn't make me (I had to return to school!) but they.. shuffled me out the door (read: my dad packed my car - 2 suitcases, 3 misc bags full of clothes/junk, a new desk unit (thank you ikea!), and a few other items).... and then I proceeded to drive back to Virginia. I passed 4 accidents on I-81, was delayed multiple times, but thanks to my quick driving during open streches and 10 minute gas pumping adventure (okay its REALLY hard to pump gas, I don't care what anyone says - it gets me everytime), I was able to arrive in approximately 7 hours. Upon arrival, I picked Tyler up and he and Robbie carried the aforementioned suitcasesbagsjunkdeskthingyandotheritems up to my room. Ah, lucky.

So, I took a three hour nap, had some chili, and now I'm looking at all the clothes that are still in my now open suitcases and I think I'll go back to bed. I did however START to reorganize my closet (which means I refolded my sweats, moved them over on their shelf, and then put the shorts up a shelf so that eventually I can put sweaters there). Seriously productive, I know.

Alright, enough of me rambling. Breakfast club tomorrow at 8am, though I think I'll sleep in.... I hope its cold so I can wear one of my new jackets (seriously who am I?!). Side note, the shopping addiction has fully continued as Kristen and Robert (my brother) and I went to Blockbuster to RENT a movie and managed to spend 17 dollars (actually 23 because we got a $5 gift card at one point during the transaction fiasco) and returned home with candy, a movie (um, yeah...), soda, and 4 glass "Coca Cola" glasses. No one else could turn Blockbuster into a shopping opprotunity. You know, it just occured to me, my strategic thinker of a father (so his business card says), once told me that there are no problems- merely opprotunities. So, this isn't a shopping problem - - it's a shopping opprotunity -- which means, clearly, I should shop more.

OH, remind me to tell you about my spring break plans. I was thinking about how I'm a bad person for shopping so much, and then I remembered I'm not really a bad person... you'll see what I mean...

...some holidays are just better than others.

So, Kristen and I have realized that some holidays are just better than others. Below, I provide you with the list of holidays that are definately better than Thanksgiving:

your birthday (mine namely), christmas, hanukkah, new years eve, easter, sinter klaus, 4th of july, valentine's day, halloween, st patricks day, all days that you might have off (ie. labor day, etc.)... and THEN thanksgiving.

therefore, please reference and realize that his entry is completely pointless, despite some of these not being actual holidays, they are clearly better then thanksgiving.

although, today, on thanksgiving i provide you with the list of things i am thankful for: my family, my little brother (yeah he's so cool he's seperate), kristen harris, shopping in the city, little cafes, my friends (erin kara chriscalle etc), pumpkin pie, my bed, my room at school, people who talk to me from banks, and being healthy, happy and smart.
