1. christmas break is over. matt goes back to school tomorrow. do you know what that means? it means i have to watch family feud by myself now. watching it alone makes me feel slightly pathetic, and i'm hoping even my closest of friends won't judge me for this admission, but i guess i have no shame; i love the feud. matt and i watched it nearly every day during the break. we got so into it that we've decided to start taking detailed statistical data on whether or not it is in your family's best interest to "pass or play." matt even got mad at the television set right along with me when the 100 randomly surveyed individuals who were asked, "what things would you find in a manger scene" did not yield a "mary" or "star of bethlehem," yet a "christmas tree," according to the dopes who answered, would surely be included. where is family feud finding these goobers? i'm a little worried about our nation.
2. it's cold here. no, seriously though. and i don't care if you live in utah and it's cold there too... do you own a car? a car with heating capability? and are you able to drive this car to the grocery store? that's what i thought.
3. last week i think i saw two B- or maybe even D-list stars. one was the guy who played maggie gyllenhal's hippie husband in the movie, away we go, and the other was the guy who played 'elliot' on that 80s show my parents would never let me watch, thirtysomething. i don't know these dudes' real names, therefore i don't think these two sightings combined would even warrant a "close encounters with famous people" post. but i thought i'd just throw that out there for all you 'elliot' fans.
4. i'm very ready to meet baby sister, but she's obviously got some reservations about meeting me. the more i try to coax her out, the quieter she gets. i get the strongest contractions while sitting on the couch, staring into space. i have a feeling i'll be doing a whole lot of nothing this week, except for the feud. who's with me?
