Christmas Music
 

I drove home to Virginia today for Christmas. On the way I heard a lot of Christmas music on the radio. I don’t know what is worse the “Red Christmas Shoes” song or “I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas”

Alanis Up For Narnia Golden Globe!
 

I just found out that one of my favorite singers, Alanis Morissette, is nominated for a Golden Globe for her song Wunderkind on the Chronicles of Narnia soundtrack. Way to go Alanis!

Meanwhile, if you haven’t gone to see Narnia yet, what are you waiting for? It’s a great movie! It only deviates from the book ever so slightly, so I recommend reading the book too. You won’t find out who the heck the White Witch is in the movie, but you do in the book!

Tis The Season
 

I’ve been preoccupied a lot lately, which is why I haven’t posted on here much. With only 12 shopping days left (well 11), I still am not finished with my Christmas shopping. I still have a major gift to buy, and I don’t know what the hell to get! I’d give you the list of possibilities, but there is a chance it might be read by the wrong person.

Finally got the tree up last night, yeah! I’ve also been playing Animal Crossing whenever I get a chance. It’s so addicting! I told all my friends with kids to buy it for their kids, but I bet they will want to play it too.

Still no news on the puppy %$@#$#%! I was so looking forward to some photos this weekend!

Tonight looks to be a good line-up on ABC Family Channel in regards to the Christmas Specials. The old Rankin Bass specials are back, after they subjected us to so many of their horrid made for TV movies.

Also don’t forget to tune into the Cartoon Network on Christmas Eve, they have a marathon too. It’s the only place you’ll get to see rarities like “Casper’s Christmas, Pac Man’s Christmas, The Smurfs Christmas and The Littlest Troll’s Christmas.”

Woah Oh Oh Ohhhhh Maria!
 

For the past 2 days the songs from the movie “Sister Act” have been stuck in my head. Why I don’t know, I haven’t seen the movie in awhile (since I was home at Thanksgiving). Hopefully now they will be stuck in your head and get out of mine!

All I Want To Do Is Decorate The Christmas Tree
 

Arg, I still don’t have my tree up! I want to put it up, but last week I was told it was only the 1st week in December. Once I get my tree up here, I have 3 more trees in Virginia. My mom will wait until I get home to do them. When I get to go home depends on if I can get the puppy before Christmas or not though.

Brr! Kitty Is Cold!
 

While we so didn’t get the huge snowstorm we were expecting (this makes the 2nd storm of the season the news has blown), the wind outside is fierce and it is damn cold. Even the poor Kitty is cold!

Some short updates
 

Yesterday I took the day off to go shopping, hang with friends, etc. Almost all of my Christmas shopping is done, yeah! The rest will be done on Amazon.com, and the final thing I’ll probably have to go to Best Buy for.

Today I’m baking Christmas cookies, thumbprints! I’m not sure what jam to use, so I’m trying grape, strawberry and apricot. I’ll decide which one I like best after they are done. I have sugar cookies to make too, but they are from a mix and not scratch.

I should have puppy pictures this weekend! The breeder is in the process of weaning the pups now and is going to try and send me some photos. I’m pretty sure the pup is going to be named TW Oz (The Wizard of Oz).

We are expecting more snow tonight. Hopefully it will be more than we got with the last storm.

I did pick up Animal Crossing for my Nintendo DS. It’s so cute! If anyone has it email me and we can exchange friend codes!

Snow and Animals
 

First up, I forgot how fun Animal Crossing was. My village was overgrown with weeds, and all my little animal friends had to point out that it had been 35 months said they had seen me, where had I been? Gosh, I didn’t realize I hadn’t played the game in so long!

Meanwhile, our snowstorm fizzled. We got about an inch on the ground and that was it. It was pretty when it was coming down last night though.

Nintendo DS: Wireless
 

The Nintendo DS has gone online with games like Mario Kart DS (I’m getting this for Xmas), Tony Hawk and the recently released Animal Crossing.

I had Animal Crossing on the Gamecube, it was fun and cute. I haven’t played in over a year, so I bet my village is dead. I am going to check in tonight, I think they probably abandoned me and I’ll have to start over in the game.

The game is like a simplified version of The Sims, but featuring animals. Anyone have it? Anyone getting the DS version? It might be fun to play online via the DS with others out there.
