Work was super crazy busy awful stressful last week. Why do people think that the closer it gets to Christmas the faster we can print their shit? Just because you need it OMG Right Now doesn't mean that's when you're going to get it! Luckily I also have a lot of awesome customers who don't bring Christmas stress into my life. And one of my regulars brought me a nummy jar of Raspberry preserves!
Rex is still awesome. We really need to get him into obedience school soon though. We also just got a couple books about Shiba Inus from Amazon.
We just acquired a couple house guests earlier today. Our old roommate from Fargo, Becca, decided that her & her "nephew" Thatcher (actually first cousin once removed) should get out of town for a few days so they're here now. He seems like a decent enough kid. He's 11 or 12 and is a geek who loves comics and stuff but doesn't really have any geek friends so he sees me & Rick's house as a kind of geek/nerd nirvana. He's playing the Batman game on our PS3 right now.
I'd planned to try to catch up on my LJ reading tonight but it didn't happen. I've got a ton of tabs open with my friends page entries back to about the 19th. I'll catch up, right? LOL.
But it's almost 1 and I have to work tomorrow so it's off to bed with me!
