I'm keeping it simple this year.
- Fingerless gloves
- Leg warmers / boot cuffs
- Winter hats with big pom poms
- Space stuff
- Moon stuff
- Local coffee (whenever I go to a new city, I find a local coffee brand I haven't tried yet, and take it home to drink)
My favorite colors are:
cobalt, emerald green, dark purple
any shade of blue, blue-green, blue-grey, grey
any jewel-tone colors (except maybe orange or yellow)

I'm taking Astronomy this quarter and I'm in love. I may need to switch majors.
Last night, we took a field trip to the MRO and played with telescopes and software and stuffs. And it was ridiculous fun. (We also played board games and listened to records when the sky wasn't clear enough to do any observing.)
BUT ANYWAY PICTURES
So... this is the Dumbbell Nebula.
When you use a telescope to take pictures, you get a black and white image. You have to apply different colored filters and take multiple pictures. And then you layer the pictures and make a composite image, like the one above. (Which is pretty much how every camera works ever. But you have to physically/manually do it with telescopes, each one separately. Or use programming/coding or specific software to do it for you.)

I will spend over an hour and a half fighting you every step of the way.
I know you only need to print a single document consisting of only a single page. And I know that after you sign it, you only need to scan in that single document consisting of a single page and email it somewhere.
It won't matter how many times you unplug me, reset me, or disable and enable wireless, I need at least 30 minutes to get ready and be online, and then I will only print your document in color, with no black. And you will spend another 20 minutes converting your PDF to a Word document so you can print in navy.
Then, when you finally get your document printed and signed, you will want to scan it. But I will disconnect and need another 30 minutes to be ready again. I am, after all, high maintenance. You can't expect this perfection in only a minute like other printers, you silly person. A minute, ha!
You will scream in frustration. You will throw your mouse down on your desk (though I noticed you were careful to throw it on your cushy mousepad). I will laugh though, because you're kind of cute when you're mad.
You can't rush me though, no matter how angry you get. But eventually, I will finally scan, and you will have to convert the document to grayscale. (And you can only do grayscale, because trying to change it to black & white makes everything go weird and squiggly.)
And then you will cross your fingers and email it, hoping they will accept this new document, in grayscale, instead of their original black with their blue and green logos.
But they accepted it right? So, I did my job just fine after all, aren't you a lucky gal?
Love and kisses,
p.s. Too bad you're not that handsome man with the beard though. I would work for him in a flash, like I always do.

So hey, I survived. It really wasn't that bad, and aside from being snowed in and losing power for the majority of the time, it was pretty fun. A pain in the ass, but fun.
Also, tons of trees were murderlated.
I love seeing this view every day.
Our new beer chest.
And look at these cuties:

Journals from previous years:
2009 - Skip the house bit, derp.
Obviously, I've said a lot of the same things in previous years.
This year, I'll add:
Caffeinated hot chocolate - Especially the mint. Though, I'd probably enjoy any of Thinkgeek's caffeinated products. Also, if you search my name, my Wishlist should come up... but, there are a bunch of random shit on there because I'm way too lazy to streamline it.
Seeds or seed bombs to grow shit.
Candle holders -- Until we get a generator, we've been a little fucked when the power goes out... we've been using cups and shit to put candles into and it's annoying. Would love some thrifted candle holders.
Bonus points? Owl candle holders. Jabberhubby thinks this sort of thing is creepy. Score!
Any DIY kits for the kitchen.
Favorite colors: Teal, turquoise, blues, greens,dark purples
XL in Girls
M in Mens
I'm braindead. If this isn't enough leads for you to go on, you're shit out of luck.

Since I have received no real RSVPs on Thanksgiving, we're not going to plan a big dinner. Especially since it looks like it will only be the 2 of us this year.
If any of you still want to show up, let me know. We'll be doing beer-can chicken, gumbo, sweet potatoes, and whatever desserts I feel like making at the time. (Angel food cake and snickerdoodle cupcakes? And pumpkin pie? Haven't decided yet.)
This year is so MEH for the holidays here. BUT WE HAVE A PUPPY.
So there's that.
I'm always happy to make an idiot of myself as long as it brings a smile to someone's face. So I have no problem looking like a complete doofus or acting like a dork. If you find something weird here, it's probably because I'm cheering someone up.
