UPDATED - Video. Or Not.

I tried to upload a video, because we got a webcam for Christmas.

It didn't work, obviously.

So I shall attempt again tomorrow.

All of you will be amazed at how charming I am.

UPDATE: Obviously I haven't posted a video yet. It's a process.

Give Me a Puppy, Please. Look, I Even Asked Nicely.

Well, I'm baking cookies today and they are fantastic. Now the only problem rests with trying to decide what other types to make - I've got snickerdoodles and the classic sugar cookies, but I think I need something else. Not gingerbread. I learned that lesson a couple years ago. So what to make? This is going to take some heavy thought.

In other news, I've got some random guy falling for me via Facebook. He's never met me, and I've never met him, and yet he's being all gooey over me. His name is Matt, and he keeps trying to get me to say I'm interested in him too, but I have standards. I have to have at least MET a person before I like them. Matt seems decent enough, but there are several factors working against him.

Anyway. Christmas is nigh, and that's the reason I'm baking all those cookies. (I should have about nine dozen with just the two batches I've already done, so who knows how many I could have if I decide to make more.) I've only got one person a present, but I do have some books for another person. That counts, right? I'm not very good at present giving.

There really isn't much more to say. I've cleaned my room, I'm trying to find a new bookshelf, and I desperately want a Rottweiler puppy.

Get Me a Present. Now.

Christmas approaches! If you don't celebrate Christmas, then whatever holiday you DO celebrate this December approaches! Yay!

In unrelated news, I've begun training for Warrior Dash in May. Thankfully the training fits in perfectly with my Survivor training, so it's not even like I have to change anything!

But back to Christmas. I've actually started getting presents for people this year, beyond just baking cookies. I'm still baking cookies, but now there are actual GIFTS involved! All of my friends are going to be so surprised. Of course, I've only gotten one thus far, but that's beside the point.

I've created a list of things I want, so any of you who want to get me a present, here you go. Maybe you could all collaborate so that I don't get the same thing twice. That can get pretty awkward.

1) Injinji toe socks

2) A laptop

3) Silver nailpolish

4) iTunes giftcards

5) Tracphone minutes

6) A jaguar cub

7) A male rottweiler puppy

8) A blanket

9) A million dollars

10) Something awesome

It's a pretty easy list. If you feel the need to get me two things off it, go right on ahead. I won't think you're being silly.

November is Over! Let's Celebrate with Cake.

November is over! I succeeded at NaNo, although the story itself isn't finished. The ending has to wait until I edit all the rest of it, because I feel like this year's was far too rushed, and nothing turned out right at the end. Hopefully everything can be rectified soon.

But now that December is upon us, we must prepare for Christmas. This is going to be the first year I actually give real presents along with cookies, so we shall see how that goes. I'm not one for remembering to buy things, even things I myself need or want, so it should be interesting. I've already got one (thanks to a little shopping with my mother), so I think I might actually manage it.

In other news, I think I might be getting a cold. This is unfortunate, because I hate sneezing. Mostly because my sneezes are ridiculous. For whatever reason, I squeak after I sneeze. Not during the sneeze. After. People either find them cute or disturbing. I find them annoying.
