12-Step Saturday

1. Woke up. Complete awakening only accomplished with coffee and donuts. Yay donuts.
2.Wandered around Best Buy. Emerged having spent no money. Took temperature. Am fine.
3. Went to local music store. Checked out $2000 Gibson Les Paul. All I needed were strings. Left with nothing. Took temperature again. Still fine.
4. Got Christmas tree. Liked first one we saw and bought it. Odd. Usually takes longer.
5. Brought said tree into house. No hernia. No tree-related deaths or injuries.
6. Went shopping at Borders. Bought books. Hello, my name is Chris and I have a problem.
7. Saw The Incredibles. Verdict? Incredible. Go see, please. You'll like it. Really.
8. Called my mom. Said "uh-huh" alot without paying attention. Hope I didn't agree to, well, anything.
9. Played guitar really loud. Made cool, strange sounds. Sure neighbors wonder "who stepped on a cat?"
10. Took shower. Smell better now.
11. Cut myself shaving...ouch. Will live.
12. Booted up laptop. Typed entry. You're caught up.

I hate to admit how many similar "conversations" I've had with my mother over the phone. Does everyone do that?

Also, The Incredibles? It really was awesome.

1. Yay for donuts!
2. Drove to Best Buy today. Took one look at parking lot and became afraid. Kept on driving.
3. I've been looking at really expensive guitars lately too, although I don't play. Am retarded. 4. Comtemplated getting Christmas tree up today before heading to work Holiday Party. Tree will need to wait until Sunday.
5. No tree so no hernia.
6. Was walking to Walden's thinking of the 10% coupon in my wallet. But was distracted by sale sign in front of toy store.
7. Have not seen Incredibles dut to the fact that wee one is going through an "Am-Afraid-of-Movie-Theatres-Stage" right now.
8. Called Mom but she wasn't home. Left message and ended with I Love You Mom!
9. Sang in the shower real loud. Scared the cats.
10. See #9. I smell better too!
11. Didn't cut myself shaving. Am very good at leg shaving skills.
12. Booted up pc. Read your entry. Now I'm all caught up.

Happy Saturday! :)

i have purposefully stayed away from Borders for the past couple of weeks because I know I wouldn't walk out empty-handed. EVERY freaking time I go shopping though I think, "I should stop by Borders." It's instinctual. I then have to remind myself that I.can.not and must.not spend any money on books this month. Thankfully, I'll get a fix at Christmas time and it will be guilt free! Yay for gifts and for people who know that you -- okay, I -- can't ever have too many books.

Days rarely fit that well into a list, but, well, maybe they should.

Also, what books? You really should use the Christopher Reeve Paralasys Foundation coupon if you're buying books there on Dec. 11-13. And you should wait until then if you have anything to buy.

Yes, I know: I'm bossy.

Now that sounds like a 12 step program I could live with!

I think the REAL reason you didn't buy anything at Best Buy was because you missed Mizz Freak!
