An iPod From Laura

For Christmas, my sister bought me an iPod. The 80GB iPod that I was hoping she wouldn’t buy, but did. She told me it was because I supported her so much while she was studying for the BAR. I was just being the nice older sister. The nice older messy sister. ^^; Anyways, I’m like, yeay! I won’t be able to use it that much until I start working again, or go to the gym. I’ll have to buy something to keep the iPod safe while working out.

Yeay!! New Nikkor Lens

Dave surprised me this year. He really did! In a very happy way. ^_^ Normally, he’s not much for presents and stuff like that, so he really doesn’t try. Me on the other hand, I try. Sometimes my attempts fall flat, but it’s the thought that counts, right? ^^; So this year, he got me a lens for my SLR camera. Nikkor 70-300mm f4-f5.6 G AF lens for my Nikon D50. I can be a stalker now! ^o^ Tomorrow, I’m going to stalk Shinta, heheh. I know he won’t mind. I think I must have looked a bit unhappy, because I was completely dumbfounded. Did Dave actually put thought into it this year? NO WAY!! He asked about my camera a while back, and I didn’t really think about it. I’m just happy. Heheheh. The closest the lens will focus on is about little under 5 feet away. Perfect for stalking. And landscape photos. Hm, I think I’ll have to make a trip to… Palos Verdes or San Pedro. ^_^.v

My best friend back in high school is pregnant, due in May. She sent me an IM earlier in the week to let me know. I’m like, wow! Congratulations! I’ll have to go buy some yarn for some baby blankets and such. I know I need to make something for Varuni, her baby shower is next month! Yikes!!

Treyarch Holiday Party

Yesterday was the company holiday party. There was a dradel (sp?) man and a Santa with a slight Irish accent. Oh, and a visit to Rose’s office will yield lots of tequila. SM3 had a office decorating contest along with a tree ornament contest. I made an ornament, but I dunno if I’ll win anything. My mom and my sister came, they got there right when I had my 3rd tequila shot (4th and last drink overall) and not quite drunk yet. Yes, I became really drunk and had to get my mom to drive my car home.

My mom was very happy that she got to see my place of employment. She always thought that the company I work for was shady for making their employees work for 12 hours a day, 5 days a week. Now she knows it’s a good place, with lots of junk food. Speaking of which, I need to go to work!

Holiday Party Time

So Saturday was the annual holiday party that my friends throw. I was going to bake a pumpkin pie, but I ended up working instead. Dave bought a pie for me, but no one touched it. T_T As for the gift, I bought a Totoro tissue box holder (I thought it was a plushie) and a banana shaped bath sponge. Dave bought a humidifier. What I got in return was an iTunes music card from Bung. Bung got my gift, so that worked out. I was kinda surprised that people fought for my gift actually. I didn’t think people would want a Totoro plushie, but I think they were more interested in it for the banana sponge. >.>; Dave got DVDs of comedy movies, Naked Gun, Airplane, and something else that I’ve never heard of before.

Oh, pictures of the party are on my Flickr account.

So Tired…

I’m so tired right now. The long work hours are starting to wear me down. My eyes have been red for the past few days because of either the dry air or the fatigue. I don’t know. I think I’ll just blow dry my hair and hit the sack.

… And re-read a volume of Vampire Knight… Pufufufu… >.>;;
