1. I just realized that in 2011, my youngest sister will get her driver’s license.
I am majorly offended and am considering retracting my previously pronounced love for The Stupid Sing Off.
I reacted by impulse-buying their latest CD on iTunes.
Which was probably not the best idea for my finances, and reinforced my indignation.
3. I finished reading a book yesterday that left me with that “No, no, no this CAN’T be the last page! Let me savor you a little longer!” feeling.
I’d forgotten about this book, and I’d forgotten about that feeling.
4. This morning, I ran out of money for Christmas shopping.
My bank account isn’t at zero, but 69 dollars will not go particularly far when I still have gifts to purchase for Dad, Best Friend, and Boy friend. Not to mention my weekly intake of caffeinated beverages, impulse purchases of mp3s, and the fact that payday is still a week away.
I started to brainstorm: baked goods, combined birthday/Christmas gifts, praying to the USPS gods to send me my replacement credit cards posthaste, an offer to Clean My Dad’s Car (he seems to like this better than presents).
My mind wandered. “Is there anyone who owes me money?” I thought. “Am I waiting on any checks that I’ve forgotten about?”
This was silly, obviously. There are Christmas checks from the Grandparents to look forward to, but no guarantee they’ll be here in time to shop, and what’s sadder than spending your own Christmas gift buying presents for other people?
And then three hours later, remembered that yes, somebody does owe me money. Somebody owes me A THOUSAND DOLLARS and if I don’t get it by the end of next week, shit’s going DOWN!
(Somebody = my school. I’m not a loan shark, people!)
When does that happen? Ever?
