Randomsity on Fridays

December is rushing by really fast. Christmas is coming up fast, and I'm still trying to figure out what presents to get people.

I also realized it's been a long time since I did a goals/resolutions progress report. Oops? This will be remedied before year end! I'm afraid of how many resolutions I broke, but on the other hand, I did keep some up!

Let's get to it. Friday 5.

1. We did the White Elephant thing at work this week. While it is fun, it always stresses me out a little, what with the stealing of other people's things and/or getting something you want stolen. I mean, it's a little against the Christmas spirit, isn't it? What are your opinions on this?

2. Speaking of the holiday spirit, have you heard about this? Google's Chrome for a Cause extension keeps track of how many tabs you open when you're browsing, and each tab you open helps raise money for a charity. Pretty cool, right? Easy too! Plus, I'm a huge fan of tabs and tab a lot, so it's nice to know it all adds up to something!

3. While I was weirded out by the 80 degree weather we had last weekend, I'm starting to kind of miss it. I know, I have no right to talk, considering the snow storm that hit the Midwest, but it's cold again here and mostly I hate getting up in the mornings when it's cold.

4. Season 3 of Avatar: The Last Airbender is probably my favorite. It's hilarious. I'm watching it again with my friends since they haven't seen it. The sister's favorite episode is episode 2 because she loves Aang's "crazy dance" during music class. I thought it was just something she found particularly funny, but no, my friends think so too.

5. There are a bunch of movies I want to see: Dawn Treader, TRON, The King's Speech, and Black Swan. Has anyone seen any of these? Recs?

That's it for me, friends! Good luck with last weekend shopping! That's what I'll be doing.

I still haven't seen Harry Potter. Sniff. Me and my crazy schedule!

I've never done the White Elephant thing, but I think I'd be totally stressed by it too. I'd end up picking something not great so as not to hurt anyone's feelings.

Watching the Black Swan tomorrow! I'm so excited. SO EXCITED YOU HAVE NO IDEA.

We did Secret Santa at work. I will write something about how awesome I am at gifting random things sometime in the future. I don't actually remember how White Elephant gift exchanges work because I haven't done them in a while.
