That’s totally how I feel right now.
I normally love the holidays but I’m feeling like a total Scrooge this year. I’m just not looking forward to the family festivities. Like for Christmas Eve, we always go to my cousin’s house where we have dinner, hang out, open presents at midnight, then end the night with a late night snack. I look forward to this! But in the past few years, our gatherings have felt less intimate and more routine. Maybe it’s just me. I do have a tendency to “read into” things too much.
Also, you know that sinking feeling you get when you realize someone probably doesn’t like you but can’t openly show it because you have mutual friends? I hate that feeling…
Anyway, I was tagged by Ceci for this meme so here we go…
Who sleeps in bed next to you?
My little Diesel! Really. He sandwiches himself right between Rob and me.
What did you last eat?
A piece of white chocolate with peppermint bits. Yum!
What kind of books do you read?
Mostly chick-lit and YA. I also go through phases of reading romance. Sadly, I haven’t read a book since August. Reading more is definitely going to be one of my New Year’s resolutions.
What are you reading right now?
I started reading In the Merde For Love by Stephen Clarke back in March but I must have kicked it under the bed and totally forgot about it (this is what happens when you don’t have a nightstand). I found it recently and should probably start over. I also received the first 3 Sookie Stackhouse books for my birthday and I really want to dig into that series.
If you could be anywhere right now, where would it be?
Disneyland! Like that’s a surprise. Or Paris. *sigh* I love traveling.
What’s really creepy?
All Horror movies. I get scared easily.
What’s your current fandom/obsession/addiction?
This season… Gossip Girl, Glee, So You Think You Can Dance.
What did you really want to do today that you didn’t?
I wanted to finish wrapping all the Christmas presents and clean up a little… I worked late and got lazy.
What are you most excited for?
My holiday break. I have a half day on Wed and then I’m off until Jan 3rd! YES. The love/hate relationship I have with my job is leaning towards the “hate” side right now so I’m excited for the time away.
What websites do you always visit when you go online?
I always check out Twitter, LATimes, LJ, and GMail…
What was the last thing you bought?
Bought some Christmas presents at Crate and Barrel last night. Thank goodness the mall was open late on Sunday. We took advantage and finished up our shopping and it wasn’t even crowded.
What do you want right this minute, off the top of your head?
Dinner! I’m hungry. But I’m waiting for the hubs to wake up…
What’s your biggest procrastination method?
Like Ceci, it’s the internet. I can read blogs and window shop online all day.
Are there any bits of childhood that you miss?
Just having my mom around. ๐
Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter?
Winter! Even though California’s winters are nothing compared to the rest of the country, lol. i just like the cooler weather because I love cool weather clothes, like sweaters, coats, scarves, and boots.
Say something to the person who tagged you.
Have a wonderful holiday Ceci! Hope that 2010 is a better year for you. *hugs* ๐
