The phone has rung like, 5 times in the past 45 minutes. And not once has it been my Indian food that I ordered. I am HUNGRY and I WANT MY FUCKING FOOOOOOOD!!!

EDIT: LOL, apparently the Universe needed me to bitch on LJ, not 2 minutes after posting the food arrived. Huzzah! I will have korma sauce and samosa coming out of my ears!

Went to my little nephew J's pre-K "graduation" today. OMG, a bunch of 4 year olds singing and dancing brings on the LULZ. My parents, my SIL and her mother were there as well. My brother couldn't take time off from work, he feels bad. But we took a shitload of pictures and I took a few little videos, so that's something. Have to see about getting it all uploaded on a cd for them. Little J. was so proud of himself, and he totally dug getting to show off for his family. I love him bunches.

Had lunch with [personal profile] fings in Hoboken. Ate forbidden fruit from Johnny Rockets which made me have to high tail it to the bathroom a short while later (sorry, TMI). But that shit was *good* so there.

Had a really great swim on campus. My goal is to go swimming 5 days a week, but I'll be happy to get up to 3 days a week consistently.

Started a project in the basement, I'm going to paint and clean out the utility room. But first, three of the walls need priming. Primed the 1st coat on the 1st wall. Felt good to at least get that started.

Ate delicious turkey lasagna leftovers. It's always nice to have a good dinner without having to cook that night!

Well, our apartment is clean, roast pork, arroz con gandules, and macaroni & cheese are ready to be eaten; chicken is roasting in the oven. My family should be trickling in soon, with their crazy Puerto Rican ways :P. Hopefully the drama will be low. Oh, and a Christmas miracle! My borderline agoraphobic mother will be coming. Wow. Tomorrow, [personal profile] fings and I have to haul ass to the train station in Hoboken to take the train to Raritan so we can spend tomorrow with his side of the family. Christmas craziness :). But in a good way! A Very Merry Christmas Eve & Christmas Day/Yule to all who celebrate!!

I received a new camera for Christmas! I got it about a week and a half ago, and I finally had fings set it up for me; a Canon A720IS. YAY, 8 megapixels!!!

I will report more Christmas loot tomorrow :).

This year for Halloween, we are doing jack shit! Eh, that's ok.

I got to the day care center later on in the day, so I missed most of the babies that were in their costumes. There was a 14 month old dressed as a tiger, and a 2 1/2 year old dressed as Robin Hood. On the walk home from work I saw a lot of people in their costumes. Among the little ones were: a Peter Pan, a witch, a fairy, a hobo. Among the adults a Mike Myers from "Halloween" and a couple dressed as Wayne and Garth from "Wayne's World" (they were across the street from me when I saw them. at first I just noticed a young woman wearing a baseball cap, then I noticed the guy next to her was wearing this terrible blond wig and black glasses, ha. I looked back at her, and sure enough her hat said "Wayne's World. I thought that was pretty neat).

My older brother called me earlier just as I was heading out the door for the center, he wanted to pick me up so I could go Trick or Treating with him and my nephew little J. Dang! It sucked having to say that I couldn't. I haven't seen little J. since his birthday party almost 2 months ago :(. Things have just been kinda crazy on their end of things, and I have class on Saturdays which hasn't helped. Anyway, little J. had been talking for weeks about being Darth Vader and I'm very glad they were able to rustle that up for him. My dad was able to go with them to the mall so little J. could beg for candy, then my brother and the kid headed off for the main drag in Bayonne. I called earlier to see how it was going, my brother said they were about to head into a party that one of the businesses had organized. He told me that he'd been concerned just a few minutes before that a guy in a particularly scary mask would scare little J. and he started to tell him not to be afraid, it was only a mask only to be told "That's ok dad, I can get him with my light saber if he bothers me!". Heh.

Oh, [personal profile] fings just looked this over and said "Hey! We're not doing jack shit! We ordered chinese food!". Ok, so, we are going to stuff ourselves with chinese food and then watch a movie while cuddled up on the sofa ^_^.

I had my CDA Workshop class on Saturday and for once I didn't leave dragging my ass and grumbling curses under my breath ;). Class was dismissed a little early and that was a nice surprise. After some loafing about at home we took the bus to the Port Authority and bought tickets for "The Darjeeling Limited". Then we took a walk around Times Square for a bit and poked around Virgin Megastore (there were some plush "Nightmare Before Christmas" dolls I was DYING to buy, but I was good) and then headed over to Dallas BBQ for some dinner. Mmmmmm :); though I had rotiserrie chicken and fried shrimp (that was effing delicious). After dinner we hopped across the street for the movie. We really enjoyed it, I think I enjoyed it a bit more than [personal profile] fings, but I'm a bigger sucker than he is for Wes Anderson movies. We hadn't had a nice date night like that in a while.

Yesterday was a good day, got lots of chores done and then loafed comfortably later on in the day.
