Guess why I'm about to go work out?

Well, since everything we do is for the men, don't you think these ads would go without saying? A bit redundant, Men's Health.

There is a small spot on the back of my right calf, right in the middle, where a charlie horse has been hanging out for the past two days.

Last night, a cut appeared on the tip of my left middle finger (my best theory is from when I was scraping ice off the car) that just happens to occupy the exact part of my finger that makes contact with the keyboard when I type.

Since I woke up from my nap half and hour ago, I have found that if I tilt my head to a particular degree or twitch my eye in just the right way, there is a stabbing pain just behind my left eyebrow.

I imagine that if I just keep writing final papers for long enough, these concentrated areas would slowly build up across my body until finally cracks appeared between them and I fall into pieces. It shouldn't take too much longer, I think it's based on an exponential equation...but I only have one more ten-page paper to go and I'm not sure if it will be enough. So, my question is, would it be worth it to keep writing something after I finish my finals in order to see where this is going? Will someone be able to put me back together at the end so I can finish and publish my study? Oh my god it is so far from mattering because I never want to have to write anything again. It confuses me that I'm doing this.

Finale Rack

I was going to say I can't believe I've completed the month, but more shocking to me is the fact that tomorrow is December 1. That doesn't seem right, even though I've been expecting the advent of the December for some time now. It's a rather sad prospect, because December 1 was an excellent day for me last year, and this time around I know it's not going to be the same. It, like most (if not all) of my days until December 12, will find me tired and worried about (or blocking from my mind the impending nature of) writing all my final papers. I really hope Gossip Girl is on, it will be a bright spot in my day.

Overall, I'm really glad I did this, because now I know I want to post in my blog everyday! Except, not. I think I'll be more likely to continue updating on a regular basis, which is good. But since I don't have to post everyday, I can just say something when I have something to say. Which is also good. Most of all, completing NaBloPoMo gives me something to feel accomplished about in a month full of...well, I'll just say non-accomplishments. So yay! I did something! I will use that feeling to get me through the week.

I almost missed posting today because of this fine musical ensemble.

I also got to eat Leo's!

Seeking Justification

I love these boots.

And these ones.

I already have four pairs of boots, but no green ones or tall ones (as in height on leg, not height of heel). The green ones will stand out more, but will match less. The grey ones will stand out in their tall buttoned glory. They are also the right color for getting dirty in the snow. The grey ones cost $30 more, $20 when I use my coupon code. I just convinced myself that the grey ones are the better buy; however, I'm still not sure if I'm allowed to buy any boots at all. Hm.

Still Eating, Somehow.

Oh my god, Thanksgiving almost ended it.

I'm about to go to bed, I will be babysitting my favorite twins in the morning while their parents go shopping, and, fortunately for me, I remembered my blogging obligation just in time. I don't really have anything to say, but here I am! At the end of a wholly satisfying family and neighbor holiday. Cheers!

Imagine what would have happened if they had criticized Oprah.

Since Obama won, I have been continuously impressed by the number of Republicans saying, "Okay, I voted for McCain, but Obama won and I respect that, and I think he can do good things for our country." If McCain had won, I don't think Democrats would have responded that way at all. Especially when I consider what my own response would have been.

The impression I get from this guy, though is that he is completely removed from anything that isn't money in his pockets. Which is just so typical of an advertising tycoon that it kind of surprised me.
