Many years back there was this one Christmas song about the "pains" of Christmas and one of them was writing and sending Christmas cards. If I added how much time and the writing that I put into making my Christmas cards along with the other writing that I did today, wow would I have gotten a lot accomplished. It's amazing how getting up early makes the day longer, and at least for me more productive. So yes I got quite a bit writing done today, and I actually finished the project that I have been working on for weeks, which I am very, very excited about. As depressing as it sounds, now I just have to read through it and then I move on with the next step. That was essentially my day, although it was fun texting people and trying to get their mailing addresses; I ended up speaking to a good friend of mine in Pennsylvania that I haven't chatted with in a long time which was cool. What's really annoying is when you forget how to spell someone's name and you can't really get a hold of that person or someone who knows just to verify that you aren't spelling it wrong and making yourself look like an idiot, especially when those people are family. There we are then; that was my day, although I am certain that I am forgetting something like I usually do. After today though we are done with November and into the last month of the year: December. During this month I'm going to share a gift that I have received every day from a past Christmas. If I could remember at least one present each year that I have received from Christmas throughout my life then I could chronologically go from baby to now and cover all Christmases since I am 25 years old. However, I don't think my memory, or my mother's memory is that good so it will have to be whatever I remember, which hopefully I can remember significant/memorable gifts instead of Batman pajamas. Also I would like to delve into the holiday that became Christmas tradition and how it ties to the winter solstice; should be interesting. Okay, well goodnight everyone and remember that you only have 24 days to finish your Christmas shopping. No pressure.
Trailer for the film Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and it looks fantastic with a fantastic cast. Hopefully it is as good as it looks.
