today was pretty fantabulous! : ) made it to the mall to pick up the toppers for some christmas presents, saw an old co-worker of mine from the insurance company. i hadn't seen her since i left, so that would have been about 6 years ago or so. i recognized her voice. heh. and she recognized me back, which always makes me feel good! : ) we had a little chat & merry christmas & then i had to check out & get to brunch!
the inn we (me, amy, trish, al & marcie) went to for brunch had a lovely buffet!! all sorts of goodies, and my particular favorites were the biscuit & gravy, crab stuffed mushrooms, and some sort of white fish w/ spinach & a yummy tarter sauce! i also had a waffle triangle & some not-crispy-enough bacon, which were both tasty. it was a really good visit & i love my friends! : ) we exchanged gifts & all oohed & ahhed over everything - trish was inspired by our trip to the christmas store last month & made us lighted jars. neato!!! al left us to our conversations after he ate, and then marcie's friend terry showed up later. he seems like a nice guy & all, but i find it a little creepy how he shows up unexpectedly every time we're out to lunch w/ marcie. it'd be different if A) they were dating/married and B) she knew he was coming, but as it is... of course, that could just be my own projections because ppl make me nervous & unexpected ppl at meals make me REALLY nervous, so it might just be me! ya know?
after we left, trish & i stayed outside & chatted for awhile. she's off on an adventure this week, and having lots of fun, i hope!! : )
then i came home & watched Holiday Inn, since i still can't find White Christmas, and i really enjoyed it! i love bing crosby. : ) i have heard he wasn't a very nice man IRL, but he could sing like a dream and i like his movies, so there. i got my christmas cups put together for my work team - and decided i'm just going to bring in the rest of the cups & candy separately & let ppl take them if they want them, rather than delivering to each desk. the delivery part causes me anxiety, especially after another co-worker made a comment about how i do too much for ppl who don't really care anyway. maybe she knows something i don't & ppl don't really like the cups. so, whatever, they can stop by my desk for one if they want it. and if not, well, i'll sell them on ebay. LOL
i watched i'll be home for christmas and a random episode of smallville that i found in my movie bin. then i headed to mom's for SURVIVOR! w/o giving anything away i will just say it was pretty exciting, and next season (starting in february) looks AMAZINGLY INTERESTING! : )
and now i didn't get home til 11 & it's midnight, so i must get to bed. this is a short week! oh, and i asked leyton to spend the night thursday, so looking forward to that! : ) then friday after i take him home, i'll be hanging out w/ erin, yay!! saturday is christmas eve & then christmas in a week & then mom & i will be off to DC!!! : ) excited!
what're you up to this week?
