OLDER:

I’m older than I’ve ever been.
And now I’m even older.
And now I’m even older.
And now I’m even older.

I’m older than I’ve ever been.
And now I’m even older.
And now I’m older still.

TIME! Is marching on.
And time.. is still marching on.
This day will soon be at an end and now it’s even sooner.
And now it’s even sooner.
And now it’s even sooner.
This day will soon be at an end and now it’s even sooner.
And now it’s even sooner.
And now it’s sooner still.

You’re older than you’ve ever been.
And now you’re even older.
And now you’re even older.
And now you’re even older.

I’m older than I’ve ever been.
And now I’m even older.
And now I’m even older.
And now I’m even older.

I’m older than I’ve ever been.
And now I’m even older.
And now I’m older still.

Fedex attempted to deliver my birthday present today, but a signature was required and no one was home to receive it. My class let out early, so I decided to go to the Fedex shipping center to pick it up. The customer counter closed at 8; I left the campus at 7:15.
On the highway, someone decided to go 45 in the left lane (speed limit 60) until the moment I moved into the right lane to pass them. Then they went 75 (I was going 67 the whole time) and got way ahead of me, then moved into the center lane. I caught up to them again, as they had once again decided to go 45. I passed them in the left lane, then moved all the way to the right to make my exit.

Off the highway, I followed my GPS directions to the proper road to get to Fedex. Once I arrived, I was faced with a temporary “ONE WAY” sign pointing the opposite direction I needed to go. There’s construction down the entire stretch of roadway. The time was 7:50. I had 10 minutes to turn around and follow the detour. Thankfully, the detour only took 7.

Inside the Fedex shipping center, I provide the CSR my tracking number. They inform me that the driver is not in yet, and has not given them an ETA.

I had one more errand, I needed to sign some papers to finish filing my taxes with HR Block. The tax agent spent more time on the phone for a personal call than she did with me, but I can forgive her. She got screwed by a vehicle rental company. They told her previously they’d have a 12 person van delivered to her door before she got home from work. The phone call she received at 8:30 (her shift ended at 9) was to tell her they didn’t actually have a 12 person van at all, and could offer her NOTHING to rectify the situation, not even give her two smaller vans.

The good news for today is that I got someone hooked up with contacts to get them the training they need to keep their clients.

Today we finally spent a Best Buy gift card from my parents. It was originally for a USB turntable, but I could never find a decent deal for one from Best Buy so we bought games and music instead.
Games:
Pikmin for Wii
Spirit Tracks for DS

Music:
White Stripes – Icky Thump
White Stripes – Elephant
Ratatat – Classics
Mika – Life in Cartoon Motion
The Raconteurs – Broken Boy Soldiers
Lady Gaga – The Fame Monster [Deluxe Edition]
Phoenix – Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix

And now the music we forgot to post from Christmas:
Lily Allen – It’s Not Me, It’s You
Cake – Prolonging The Magic
ZZ Top – Rancho Texicano
Muse – The Resistance
The Prodigy – Invaders Must Die
Mika – The Boy Who Knew Too Much

And more music that we got and didn’t post about between today and Christmas:
Weezer – Raditude [Deluxe Edition]
OK Go – Of the Blue Colour of the Sky
OK Go – OK Go

Some day I’m going to post a huge list of all our legally purchased music that we keep mp3s of with links to go buy it yourself. Of course, if you’re a friend, you can always borrow our CDs.

Thankfully, there is something good about my credit card. The ThankYou network. For each dollar spent using my AmEx, I get 1 point. A point is about a half a penny to two cents when compared to retail prices of items (it depends on popularity and inventory) trading them in. So, now we have:
Silversun Pickups – Swoon
Green Day – 21st Century Breakdown

Christmas Haul

Since a person’s identity is willfully purged from the earth when one decides to bring a child to the world, many gifts received this holiday were for the baby I haven’t given birth to yet. The selection of baby clothing is perfectly acceptable: greens, blues, and browns with cute sayings and the like; also with a fair range of sizes so that the gifts aren’t completely useless after 8 weeks. One relative put together a diaper changing starter kit with newborn diapers, all the goos, creams and wipes required, all in a nifty basket.

Two folks decided that we needed a camcorder, so one was returned and we purchased a KitchenAid stand mixer and some music with store credit. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s my husband’s birthday on Monday, and I got him some music.

Dragonforce – The Valley of the Damned

Dropkick Murphys – Singles Collection, Vol. 2

Flogging Molly – Within a Mile of Home

Flogging Molly – Swagger

Flogging Molly – Whiskey on a Sunday

When I picked up the CDs, they  had Flogging Molly listed under the heading “Molly Flogging” as if it was a name rather than a group.
