Random Stuff Friday

Okay, hi. It's Friday already. I am writing this post and it is 12:14 AM and I have not yet gone to sleep nor have I done any creative writing. I don't like this feeling.

What have I been doing instead of working to finish my almost-finished wip? Day job stuff. It involves lots of spreadsheets with a bazillion lines. My eyes hurt. I might just type up the rest of this post with my eyes closed and see if that helps.

1) We had our family pictures done about a month ago and I just finally figured out which prints to order and which images to get on the CD. Anyway, I love Joanna Taylor. She knows exactly how to catch our family's whole personality on film. Plus, she's one of my oldest friends. By that I mean I've known her for forever, not that she's old. (Just making it clear, Jo.) If you want to see why I am gushing so much about how talented and wonderful and superawesometastic she is, check her out HERE I am so excited to get the pics and get our Christmas cards done!

2) Yes. I did mention Christmas already and it is not even Thanksgiving yet. Can't help it. The ads are already talking about Christmas lists and the stores have decorations out. The radio is playing Christmas songs and, well, it is what it is. The sad thing, Thanksgiving is my FAVORITE holiday. Why? The food. What can I say, I'm an easy girl to please. So you spend all that time in the morning cooking and stuff but then, the rest of the day is eating. Hanging out. Eating. Watching TV. Eating. And if you pay any attention to my Twitter feed, you'll notice, I tweet about food. A lot.

3) Speaking of Twitter, I love it. I know some people don't get it, others don't care for it and others still hate it, but I think it's because you have not learned how to appreciate it yet. So it has been suggested *ahem* to me by a few peeps (or tweeps in Twitterese), that I do a Twitter series on the blog. I'm working on it. Give me a couple weeks. Thinks have been super crazy at the day job and that's sucked up most of my brain power.

4) I use Excel. A lot. Like, a bajillion lines on a gazillion worksheets that link to a zillion other workbooks. After a few days staring at this stuff, you forget which way is up. Sorry if I sound more rambly than usual. That's been my life lately.

5) Thank you to Arctic Circle and the $.99 rootbeer float you made for me tonight to help me make it through Thursday evening all the way to Friday morning. I couldn't have done it without you. It's the little things, I tell you. The little things.

Happy Harry Potter Weekend Everybody! In the words of my 2yo waving her magic chopstick: Expecto Patronum!
P.S. I typed most of this post with my eyes closed and that helped a bit. But then, I had to open them to put in the links. But anyway. Wingardium Leviosa and what have you. Night. Er... Morning. Well, oh, nevermind. Let's just go with Peace Out.

Love your pictures! You're right Joanna did a great job. It's crazy how Christmas has taken things over all ready. I like Thanksgiving too - it's less stressful than Christmas.
Thank you for your comment and advice on my blog post yesterday.

I was supposed to get family pictures done last year. Still haven't done that yet. Ooops! At least we have the school pictures. They were pretty good. ;)

Our Thanksgiving was last month, so we're just focused on Christmas. And with all the snow we've got, it's hard not to get into the spirit (when we're not grumbling how cold it is). :D

I still don't get twitter, but I'm going to conquer it this next year! I plan on it! Maybe. Hopefully.

I'm gaining an appreciation for Twitter. I don't have a lot of time to do it, but it's fun to jump on that ride when I do. It's a crazy wave especially when you're in the middle of something like yalitchat. All the different comments coming in so fast. Whew.

Wow, such alot to say while your eyes are trying to tell you is sleepy time. Sounds like you're just as busy as I am though :)

Hopefully you got some rest by now.

I do like twitter, but I think I need to get one of those programs (or whatever they are) that everyone uses to help me organize it better. (Like tweetdeck, or hootsuite) But since I have no clue what those are, I have yet to do anything about it. ;)

Love famiy pictures! And I LOVED HP7-- I was up until almost 4 because we saw the 12:35 showing at a theaeter twenty minutes away from our house. #wearecrazy
