there is a god

Today there was a short and sweet meeting at work, with the boss informing us that we would have from 1pm on Wednesday, December 24th, through Monday, January 5th off... with pay. That's like a week-and-a-half of extra vacation pay. Awe-some!

Anyways, this weekend was nice and quiet for me, I spent most of it huddled in bed, fighting off the cooler temperatures, watching Christmas specials on DVD. Yesterday I became more acquainted with my new Medal of Honor: Rising Sun game. I had been a bit disillusioned, because I couldn't figure how to get out of the Guadalcanal level, but, by chance, I figured it out and was able to move on to the next.... it only took me three hours or so.

I only played my new copy of Tony Hawk's Underground a wee bit. The most fun part about it so far was the whole create-a-skater bit at the top. After that, and I'm sure it gets cooler, I was just a little bored... or maybe it was because I wasn't into learning new tricks right away (what with the whole run-jump-50/50 thingee).

Oh, and I got a chance to watch my new DVD copy of Mommie Dearest. Hallelujah, that movie rocks so hard. A favorite bit:

Mommie Dearest: Why can't you give me the RESPECT that I would get from any STRANGER on the STREET?!?

Christine: Because I am NOT... one of your FANS!!!

Mommie Dearest: [proceeds to strangle Christina]

Anyway, I know at this point I'm just blabbing just typing to hear myself type, so I will shut up now.

Hope all is well with everyone.
