It's nothing...It's so normal... -or- Can you help me I'm bent?

I think I'm broken. It's 7 o'clock in the frickin' morning, and I'm up. And I'm not tired. Last week, we were up most mornings by 7 or 8, so I think I just got used to that.

But I was up until 1 last night! And yesterday I woke up at 5am! Stop the insanity, and let me sleep. It wasn't even a restful night, I had too much on my mind. Grrr.... Perhaps I'll take a nap later today, if I have time.

*sigh*

Late arrival at school tomorrow. Class doesn't start until 10. Thank fucking God!

In other news...I hate homework. I hate physics. I wish I didn't have to go to boring school anymore with sucky classes. Yuck.

EDIT: (11:09am) Also, where the hell is everyone? Am I the only one in the world who had been up for the past 4 hours? How come no one is updating? SOMEONE SAVE ME!!!!!!!

    Just entered the NSYNC Secret Santa Contest. For the "What present and from who" I wrote (and this is a direct quote):

    Oh, I think you know what I want...from JC. *laughs*

    God, I hope someone reads that and finds it funny. I don't care if I win or not, I just hope I amused somebody, cus I sure as hell amused myself.

    The catergory was optional anyway, so I don't think it would effect my chances of winning...either way. *shrugs*

    Just call me *dun dun dun DUN!* The Queen of Spam!!!!

    Yes, I'm addicted to Journal.

    *hugs computer* How did I live without you last week? *pets monitor* I'll never leave you again.

    Well, once I finish with my Calculus homework, I'm going over to Ci's apartment. Because we are both bored. And misery loves company. And I really don't want to be home anymore.

    Yeah. So. That's it for now. I will *definitely* be back later. Fear not, kids.

    Well....My *intention* was...

    To say how stupid I am, and that I had lost my Beloved book twice in one week (the first time was totally not my fault!).

    But then I found it.

    I was going to say how absent-minded I was, and that I had looked every logical place, and searching the illogical places could take forever...

    But then I found it.

    Okay. I'm going to Ci's now. I apologize for the Spam. But I'd rather have Spam than really long involved entries. Think about it.

    *sings* "Hurry Christmas, don't be late"....ya gotta love the Chipmunks

    I love Christmas, so courtesy of Dacey *drum roll*..... The Christmas Survey!!


    1. When do you put your Christmas/Hanukah decorations up?
    The day after Thanksgiving, traditionally. Out with the old, in with the new!

    2. Do you prefer to use Christmas lights that are all one color, or do you go for the multicolor effect?
    Both. Solid white for the Tree (since the ornaments are color enough) and Multi-colored for the house.

    . Real tree or fake?
    We've always had an artificial tree. Less work, and you can have them up longer.

    4. Where do you get your tree?
    Umm...the garage?

    5. Perfectly shaped tree, or one with character?
    Perfectly shaped. I love Charlie Brown, but I want a pretty tree, perfect for a perfect holiday.

    6. Where do you put your tree?
    Living room, right in front of our big picture windows so you can see it from the street.

    7. Tinsel or garland?
    Garland. Tinsel is far too messy, and a hazard for kitty. But garland is fun.

    8. Blinking lights or solid lights on the tree?
    Solid. Blinking too crazy.

    9. What sits on the very top of your tree?
    A fabric angel, that I think my mom made.

    10. Eggnog or hot chocolate?
    I love hot cocoa.

    11. What does your family Christmas/Hanukah feast consist of?
    Turkey, ham, mashed potatos, corn, stuffing, bread, pumpkin pie. The norm.

    12. What day do you typically hold your Christmas celebrations?
    We read 'Twas the Night Before Christmas on Christmas Eve, and open presents Christmas day.

    13. When do you open your presents?
    Christmas morning. Bright and early, before breakfast.

    14. Do you open them all at once, or one by one?
    One by one. Savor each and every gift. Besides, it takes longer, and we all know it's not how much you spend, it's how many presents you get. *laughs*

    15. Favorite Christmas movie?
    I have a ton. It's a Wonderful Life, White Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Carol (any version, Mickey's, Muppet's, the one with Patrick Stewart). The list goes on and on.

    17. Do you have any family holiday traditions that you partake in each year?
    Well, decorating the house the day after Thanksgiving, watching movies, reading The Night Before Christmas on Christmas Eve, then wrapping presents once any children go to bed, leaving out cookies and milk with the kids, then eating some of the cookies and drinking part of the milk to make it seem like Santa came.

    18. For New Year's Eve, do you go out, or stay in?
    I usually stay in with a few friends (about 5-8). Never anything to big, just fun. We drink Cherry 7-Up, watch Psycho on mute, throw confetti, read out of the If Books, and watch marathons of Cirque de Soleil...you know, the norm. *laughs*

    Another day done, and I'm left with only fond memories...

    Sometimes I think I should be a poet. Or just one of those people who always say the really cool things and get quoted in movies, books, speeches, etc.

    My kitty is awesome. I missed her in the past week. *frowns* But now I'm happy to see her again. Yay!

    Apparently school doesn't start until 11 tomorrow. Boo-yah! And we are testing block scheduling, so I only have half my classes. Boo-yah again! It's amazing. I have 10 hours before I have to wake up. And I think I will take advantage of all 10.

    Went to Ci's today to...um...do homework? Mom called at 7 and asked if I had gotten a lot done. "Yeah, I have." Um...I had watched the Puppies Atlantis special with my sister. Does that count? Hahaha. For the record: Watching Puppies footage is sooooooo much better with another fan like yourself. We had a good laugh. Lance has situated himself firmly in 2nd, and Justin is struggling to regain his position. (The collapsing in "Gone" is definitely helping.) So much fun. Lots of laughing, even more squeeing.

    I actually did get a majority of my homework done. A lot of it is just studying, and you can only stare at the pages of a Calculus book for so long before realizing it's hopeless, and not so totally worth it. Guess it just sucks to be me.

    Need sleep. Damn, need shower. I'll have time in the morning, I think. I'll have to be out of bed -right- at 10 though. Blah. So...very...tired. Night kids!
