In Lansing. There is fuzzy cuteness all over the place (my sister has two cats in addition to my mom's two). Lina and I are up stupidly early to go to Grand Rapids and have brunch with Grandma.

After that, I realized I have to read an anthro chapter and write a 400 word essay on something about subcultures and the Amish, I forget the exact prompt off the top of my head, but it's due today.

Whee :)

... for kings will give thee gold,
and princes bring thee gems from distant lands.
The only wealth that I may ever hold
are these fair flowers for thy maiden hands -
yet fragrant they'll remain, and richly green,
if they are remembered by a golden Queen.

Damn, I'm just chatty all over the place today. Heh.

Me: Holy CRAP my baby sister's hair is long.
Dan: Eh?
Dan: Considering I think I've met your sister...once....maybe? Actually....have I ever met your sister? [Ed: This cracked me up SO HARD.]
Me: Nope.
Dan: And I haven't really even seen any photos of her, at least nothing from the past 10 years or so. I honestly don't really know what she looks like.
Me: But I've never seen her hair any longer than just below shoulder-length.
Dan: ....which one of the two is she? laughs
Me: Oh dear :) she's the blonde.
Dan: I was assuming the one on the right.
Me: Yes.
Dan: Wow. I never really thought about that fact.
Me: I haven't seen her since before you and I started dating.
Dan: You have a family immediate she is your sister family member...that I've never even met nor could really even recognize in a photo.
Dan: That's....kinda insane.
Dan: For me and my family at least.
Me: And NOW you see why it baffles me so much that you're on the phone with your sister every two or three days? :)
ginger: (method to the madness)
Crafting: In the last couple of weeks, I've finished my DreamRogue (pictures, yes, as soon as I find the camera), and a hat-and-scarf set for my sister for christmas. (Speaking of Rogues, Em, yours is about half-done. I need to email you momentarily about the colors.)

Family: We missed the local-relatives holiday gathering coz I had to work. I talked to my little sister for the first time in a good....oh, year or so? 2 out of our 3 Christmas boxes from various family members did not arrive before Christmas, and I am (as usual) horribly behind in sending out our boxes to said various family members.

Gaming: In WoW, my druid has at this point supplanted my hunter as my main character. I've been toodling around with a couple of alts, all of whom are currently between L8 and L16, and a baby Dranei on the beta BC server (but not much, because I don't want to play her way up just in time to start her over). In D&D, Nephari's sword is now positively terrifying, and she is still well-decorated. And last weekend, I kicked some serious butt at a 5-person game of Monopoly, almost entirely thanks to a deal that Ari made with me early on. :)

Health: I'm fallin' apart. :P My hip has been acting up, though not bad enough to require the Staff of Moose. I'm currently just over a bacterial eye infection, and my feet would Very Much like for me to get another pair of Danskos. (Which will happen, as soon as I get to Nordstrom's so that I can try the style I want on to confirm the size and then find someplace far cheaper to order them online.)

New Years' Goal: Crappy. Well, sorta. On the one hand, I started completely disregarding the entire thing back in June and went back to bad habits. On the other, I lost 18 pounds and 2 pants sizes (and one bra size, dammit) between January and June, and even having gone back to overdosing on soda and fast food and not enough water and vegetables, I've stayed within a 4-pound weight range and in the same size clothing between June and now. So at this point, I'm inclined to call it a more-or-less success.

Reading: [ profile] pyran and [ profile] fishsupreme foisted the Riftwar Saga on me, and I'm currently most of the way through the second (original) book. Very much enjoying. I also read yesterday a book on smallpox eradication (Demon in the Freezer, I think?). I'm currently on the library waitlist for John Grisham's and Stephen King's latest books as well, and I'm going to go add Eragon and Eldest to my hold list too, while I'm thinking about it.

School: Currently between quarters. Winter 2007 starts on January 2nd, and right now, my class list tentatively includes Medical Billing (2 credits), Transcription 2 (barf), Credentials, Accounting, and Medical Office Management. This is still up in the air, a bit, as I've just discovered one major hitch in my carefully laid-out plan: the only non-medical course requirement in my program is a specific interpersonal communications course through the business department. Up through Summer 2006, it was offered in either a 3- or 5-credit variant, and up through Fall 2006, offered either in-class or online. For Winter 2007, at least, it's offered as a 5-credit course ONLY, and the only class session is 11am-11:50am every weekday. Not exactly workable, due to my day job. Hopefully it's offered online during Spring quarter - otherwise, it'll require some serious hoop-jumping to get my certifications done in June 2007 as I had planned. =/ However, my GPA is currently 3.88 :) And my goal is to get my application submitted to UW by the end of the year. (Deadline is in February.)

Watching: Movie recommendation - Night at the Museum. Ben Stiller has finally managed another non-crappy movie. We're halfway through season 4 of Babylon-5, and I bought myself The 10th Kingdom for my birthday. Also, M. Night Shya-whatsis has finally redeemed himself after all the crap movies he put out since The Sixth Sense - Lady in the Water was a very good movie, I thought.

Wedding: Big Seattle Wedding Show is the 6th. Time is omgzorz flying. o.O
