Yet another "Help Me Guess My Gift" update

I didn't get to go home for Christmas so Mom told me what 2 of my 3 gifts are:

1. gift certificate to Victoria's Secret. (for pajamas, not lingerie you sickos)
2. Bose iPod station thingy. I've really been wanting one and somehow Mom always knows without asking. We must have a psychic connection.
3. I still don't know. But she did give me another hint. She's keeping half so when I need replacements she'll have them. I'm now thinking it's a box of tampons.

Update: Help me guess my gift

Mom says she read everyone guesses and we have great ideas, but none of them are correct. Also, she says we will all be disappointed when I receive the gift. hmmm, Maybe she was lying when she said it was awesome.

Damn, I can't believe it's not a Cambodian orphan. I had a name picked out and all.

Don't hate me because I'm beautiful

I have found the secret to getting lots compliments. You ready to know what it is???

My new secret beauty weapon is red lipstick.

I swear people will tell you that you look beautiful, glamorous, and fantastic if you simply wear red lipstick. I bet that if you just put on red lipstick and didn't do anything else you would still get compliments. Yeah, I think that's what I'll do from now on. Roll outta bed with my hair all standing up straight, and the last remnants of mascara that I couldn't wipe off last night smeared under my eyes and stuck in the crusty bit in the corner and slap on some red lipstick.

I'll be one of People's 50 sexiest people in no time!

Help me guess my gift

My mom bought me a Christmas present and these are the clues I was given about it:

1. It can't be mailed
2. She's keeping half because...
3. ...It's awesome
4. It's going to make me feel like a grown up.

I don't know whether to be excited or scared. Any guesses as to what it is?

My new BFF

Yesterday I rang up Sarah Michelle Gellar while I was working the register at B&N. I was not overly excited about seeing her but the truth is I'm so celebrity obsessed that seeing any one in real life is like walking into the pages of Entertainment Weekly. Oh the glamour of touching Sarah Michelle Gellar's gold Amex card! Can you imagine the expensive things that card has bought. Damn, I'm jealous.

When I told Jason that I saw SMG and that she was shorter than me, he disagreed. This prompted me to look up her bio on imdb.com to try and prove that indeed I AM taller than her. Well, her bio obviously lies about her height which is listed as 5'3" but really must be 5 feet even. But there were some other interesting facts listed there that lead me to believe that SMG and I could be really good friends if she gave me the chance to prove I'm more than a lowly B&N peon.

SMG: Big fan of Dr. Seuss. Hobbies: collects rare books, especially editions of classic children's literature
me: Big fan of Dr. Seuss. I love rare books, especially editions of classic children's literature

SMG: She studied Tae Kwon Do for five years, and now she's taking kickboxing, boxing, street fighting and gymnastics.
me: I really want to start kickboxing.

SMG: One of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People. [1998]
me: Someday, yes Someday

SMG:Tattoos: Celtic symbol on her left hip, Chinese symbol for integrity on her lower back and a heart with a dagger hanging over it tattooed on the inside of her right ankle.
me: I have tattoos, but not those

SMG: Her high school classmates include: Tara Reid, Jerry O'Connell, and Macaulay Culkin.
me: I went to high school.

SMG: Her favorite movie is Heathers
me: I have a favorite movie.

SMG: Her favourite food is sushi
me: me too! I love sushi!

SMG: Has said that if she wasn't an actress she'd want to be a journalist or a writer of childrens books
me: If I weren't lazy I would be a children's book writer and my journalism professor told me I would make a great journalist.

SMG: She beat out Rebecca Gayheart for the role of Cici in Scream 2
me: I could beat up Rebecca Gayheart.

SMG: Is an only child
me: I am an only child, kinda, depending on which side of the family you are looking at.

See, Sarah and I could be the bestest of friends.

Get Your Tivos Ready!

Project Runway Season 2 has started tonight!

All hail Banana Republic and Bravo for creating the best reality show ever!

Frozen Alive!

Austin has hit it's record high AND it's record low for December all in one week.

Tonight it dropped to about 28 degrees and everything is freezing. I've also learned a very important lesson: My car is not capable of handling cold. The mirrors are frozen with a layer of ice, the windshield squirty things won't squirt, and doors were stuck closed.

I also learned people in Austin don't know how to drive on icy roads. There were accidents all over the place and even though you skid across the road when you get to about 20 miles an hour people were still going 35 to 40. Genius!

The good news is that the final I had scheduled for tomorrow morning is now cancelled and rescheduled for next week. Extra study time!

You won't like me when I'm angry

Said to jparks while in the waiting room of the doctor's office:
"They gave me a steroid shot for my allergies, so you better not be a bastard or else I'll go into a 'roid rage and beat your ass"

I'm the incredible disappearing friend

How many people have I been avoiding for the last month or so? 4 or 5? Or was it 5 or 6?

1. Jennifer
2. Bonnie
3. Holly
4. Emma
5. please feel free to insert your name here

so 5. It could be worse, I could be avoiding my blog too. Oh hell, I have even been doing that.

So what's with the avoiding people? This whole "where is my life going, what am I planning on doing, where am I planning on living?" has really been getting me down. Am I staying here in Austin or moving to California? Am I going to find a better job or will I continue to quietly loath every customer I help at Barnes and Noble? "Yes, we do have the newest Oprah book club title and no I don't really care that Oprah says it's the best book she's read since last week when some other publishing company sucked her huge Hollywood owning balls to recommend one of their books" See, I'm not bitter at all.

I'm just terrified of not knowing where my life is currently headed and it feels like as long as I keep that to myself I'll be okay. But the second that I have to say out loud that I don't have a plan I think I might fall apart.

So please don't take my silence as I'm ignoring you. And no, I don't deserve to have friends that try tediously to contact me only to be seemingly snubbed with no return calls or emails. But I do love you all and hope that you can stand about another week of me being horrible and not contacting the outside world.

Not a deal you're willing to make? Okay, how about another week and I'll start emailing everyone but until then I'll make some more posts on my blog. No more big gaps of laziness and taking the fact that I have a public arena to bitch on for granted.

I promise, I'll be a much better friend soon.
