So You Can Get Caught Up

Could not be bothered to blog much lately, so let me get you up to speed on some of the highlights the last few weeks...

  1. Woke up on Christmas morning around 3am just in time to run to john and begin vomiting into the toilet (a ritual I repeated hourly through the morning). Yes, Santa gave me a flu bug for Xmas this year.
  2. Got beer from my parents for Xmas. Seriously. They bought me beer.
  3. Went to a Bulls game. This is significant because my whole life I'd never been to a Bulls game. Plus, I won some bottled water.
  4. Had to sign up for an unplanned Chemistry course, potentially knocking back my whole nursing school roadmap back a semester.
  5. Went ice skating in Millenium Park with Niner and LP. Although not a skater, I think I did OK.
  6. After all my bitching, I got an A in Bio.
  7. Went to London for New Years (a blog entry in itself).
  8. Celebrated part of New Year's Eve in a pub with that actress from Bridget Jones Diary and one of the Harry Potter movies. Also, I wore a pretty gold tiara. (Photos forthcoming.) It is OK to be jealous.
  9. Actually reversed a trend by losing weight over the holidays instead of gained (some thanks to #1 above). So at least I got that going for me.

I just watched something with Shirley Henderson on the tube last night... "The Way We Live Now", I'm always amazed at how short she is. Does she make up for it being being a big party animal?

Due to #1 I too lost weight over the holidays. Thanks a lot santa! Dick.

You got a bug from St. Nick?? Geez, don't you guys use protection?

Congrats on your A! Can't wait to hear about London! And chemistry? I don't envy you .. I sucked so bad at chem no matter how hard I tried.

beer is the perfect christmas gift. consumable, recyclable, hoppy goodness.

Sez she was in "Tristram Shandy" too -- that movie was a scream. I think all six of us who watched it all loved it.

I'd rank your gifts like this:

1. Trip to London
2. Beer
3. Bottled Water
4. Flu Bug

But then, #4 might be ranked higher because, it's special! It's from Santa!

Did you win the contest at the Bulls game where you dress up in an inflatable Benny the Bull outfit and run around the court? That is the sweetness.

Mr. Shain said...

you wore a pretty gold tiara on new year's eve? or you wore it the entire time in london...?

you're wearing it now aren't you. yes you are.

It could have been worse. Santa could have given you a case of the clap and a cold sore.

Dude! Screw Bridget Jones and HP! (Though I do quite like the former). How about "that actress from Trainspotting!" Very nice, I'm jealous.

Ms. Laaw-yuhr said...

I am 100% jealous of your tiara. When I was six I planned to marry royalty so I could wear one all the time.

Love you.
