Ah am very tired today. More so than usual, but I can’t figure out why. Maybe I’ve cracked finally after all the cloudy rainy mornings.
I’ve only one more gift to shop for and that is for my cousin, BJ. Each year my family gets together on Thanksgiving and draws names for who gets who a gift on Christmas. It’s tradition. I’m always happy to draw one of my female cousin’s names because sometimes I think it’s easier shopping for women. But I know exactly what to get BJ! All my gifts for penpals and friends not close to me have been mailed out already and everything I need for everyone else is either on it’s way from an online store or already with me and wrapped. I feel very accomplished. I got another of C’s gifts yesterday and I had to check it out again and again before I wrapped it. Gasp. It’s so amazing. I really hope she likes it more than any of the others… :3
What’s dangerous to me about shopping online for other people is I sometimes find things (usually included in a holiday discount of some sort) and I think, if I get it now, I can get the discount whereas if I wait until after the holidays… I’ll have to pay full price. Sounds reasonable, right? Well after shopping and getting a few things for myself, I figure it needs to stop at some point. Merrymerry to me. I’ve already gotten such amazing things this year: my MBP, the Kobayashi Maru earlier this year, Hesher, my racecar! I love him, I can tear it up on the road. The tablet.. all in all I like the tablet, but I sometimes find myself wishing I had gotten the Cintiq 12WX or 21UX. Maybe something in the future. I could start saving for one now.
I’ve been getting a lot of requests in the past few weeks for becoming new penpals with people from all around the world. I’m pretty excited about it! I love making new friends. Trouble is, some of them can leave you with a :| on your face. I recently got aquatinted with a younger boy on Facebook and we hit it off really well and really fast. I don’t have a problem with homosexuals, I myself am currently in such a relationship, but gay boys always seem to leave me with a :| on my face and this boy was no exception. After being friends for about 5 minutes I come to find out he was only nice to me because he thought I was a gay boy and single to boot. :| How that is possible, I don’t know. It’s not the first time that has happened, so I know the turnout is always the same: not available? Goodbye! Stupid fucking gay boys. Sigh. I’m sad I don’t hear from him anymore, tho. He was funny. Oh well. Such is life. People come, people go. Who sticks around is what really matters most. c:
