Okay I rushed the end of that entry because I want to talk about NOW!

Now is great too! Sure I haven't unpacked as much as I should have by now, but who cares? It will get done eventually! I will get a lot done tonight. It's been hard because work has been such a bitch. But as of yesterday morning, that's done for a while! Yay! No more crazy hours for at least a few weeks. And I got a Thank You message on my voice mail this morning from the client, in which he reiterated his desire to help me towards my goal of owning a Vespa. He wants to take me up on his offer to see about the down payment or something. Um, what?? All this from an offhand remark last summer about how all the overtime was going to get me a Vespa. It is weird! And maybe awesome, but maybe not because what? I mean it's not like Bruce isn't paying me. I don't know, it's crazy, let's forget about that for now.

Last night I started to get a little bit upset about how I wasn't going to have a tree this year, because the living room is filled with boxes and Oh will I be able to have a Little Christmas/Housewarming party on the seventh but man WHATEVER! Who cares! I don't have to have a Little Christmas party this year! I'll have one next year! And I've decided to just get a tinyster live tree, and that will be fine! And less stressful! I am easily mollified.

And sure, it's cold in my condo in the places I loiter in -- like the couch, and my bed -- when it's warm and toasty everyplace else. But whatever! I can deal! I might even move the living room furniture around, even though I just got the bookcases nailed to the wall a few days ago. It's all right, man! Nothing is permanent!

I got all my Christmas shopping done last night. I think I did all right, for the most part, despite the fact that I (as I have come to realize this year) not a particularly inspired gift-giver. That's okay! I still love to do it, and Christmas is Christmas and I can't wait to see my family this weekend. Particularly my brother.

And on Tuesday Jeff and I went to see Spamalot! MTA strike be damned! And it was still really really funny! I think the song about the Jews is my favorite. And man, it was great to see Hank Azaria! BOY do I want to hump that man! Ha, you want to hear something funny, though? In June I saw the show with Mitch, and it was the FIRST performance of Hank's sabbatical. (It should have been Alan Tudyk, who subbed for him all summer and fall, but it wasn't for some reason. Which in retrospect was disappointing, but at that point I had seen one (1) episode of Firefly and wasn't yet enamoured with Wash, so I wouldn't have appreciated it as much as I would have today.) So no Hank. And then for THIS performance, we saw the dude who isn't Tim Curry. He was good anyway, but still, isn't that crazy? I just missed them both. And I was hoping that Niles had worked on his Cockney accent in the meantime, but no such luck. Keep tryin', El Niles! Or, you know, don't! I guess your vanilla English accent is fine! Haha I kid, I kid, he's fine.

Christmas is here! It's going to rain! Oh well! But Christmas is here and Jeff and I saw the Santaland Diaries last weekend (which was AWESOME) and also last weekend I traveled north to New York in an attempt to see mordicai in his theater debut. I and New Jersey Transit failed! But I DID get to see iphisol, and later M and Jenny at the afterparty, and meet kromelizard and kingtycoon. And we had drinks and M performed a bit of the play that I had missed and we all had a good time and then kingtycoon and I shared a futon. And then M showed me Ico.

These thoughts are jumbled.

But I was so miserable and angry earlier this week! And now I am not! Also I keep thinking we're a day later than we are. Yesterday felt like Thursday, and today feels like Friday. But tomorrow I'm totally going to fool around all day at work I bet! So who cares.

Life is good! I should get out of here soon.

i'd rather see a wet christmas than a white christmas anyday. any christmas day. well, no, any day at all, i guess. the point is, rain stops & snow lasts for like 6 weeks on this Godforsaken street.

Ico the PS2 puzzle game? the kid with the horns? that game is awesome. chris's roommate was playing this game by the same people called "something of the collossus" that also looked pretty cool. you are a little tiny guy running all over these gigantic enemies. it's weird...

Yes, it is! I think that other game is called Shadow of the Colossus, and that Ico is a sequel of sorts to that game. M and kingtycoon were discussing it that morning.

Man, this morning it occurred to me that in addition to seeing my family this weekend, I also get to play as much Katamari Damacy as I want! HOORAY!

Did you get the new Katamari game yet?
Dec. 23rd, 2005 05:56 pm (UTC)
I don't have a PS2, dogg!

My brother has both games, though. I played We ♥ Katamari over Thanksgiving weekend.

I can't get my days straight this week, either.
Dec. 23rd, 2005 05:46 pm (UTC)
One day you'll hang out in NYC with me... maybe.
Dec. 23rd, 2005 05:59 pm (UTC)
Haha, of course I will, Kate! I look forward to seeing your new place!

I had just made plans to see Imogen and Mordicai's play and besides, I heard you were sans phone AND possibly meeting up with my stupid ex-boyfriend so there!

But seriously, we should try to make certain plans, even if they're way in advance. Some weekend in January or February?

Congratulations on your new place! I am so happy that 2005 was so good to you on so many fronts.
