I meant to post the other day, but things were acting up. For whatever reason, my computer wouldn’t read my SD card, so I was trying to get that to work. I don’t know why. It’s the strangest thing because I turned my computer on this morning, and it came up like it usually does. Go figure.

Christmas was awesome. I got all kinds of fun goodies (yay, music and games!), plus a gift from the Bon Jovi online store (although, I was perplexed about receiving t-shirts and wrapping paper with no invoice on Christmas Eve). I even braved the stores the next day with G for after Christmas sales. I picked up the new Forever Red stuff from Bath and Body Works. I think it may be my replacement scent (of course, I pick the one that’s more expensive than the rest). It smells a bit like the Velvet Tuberose, which they only have available during the semi-annual sale but not always in every type of lotion and soap. The Forever Red, though, smells a bit sweeter and not as strong, so it’s a good replacement.

Two of the shirts are tank tops and probably too small for everyday wear, but I can wear them to bed. The pink shirt is awesome and says “Shot through the heart and you’re to blame” on the back. A bit snug, but I can wear it around the house or underneath something if I go out. I have the same problem with my Matt Nathanson “I’m nobody’s girlfriend” t-shirt. I’m not sure what to do with the wrapping paper since it isn’t really Christmas or birthday paper—it’s just black with the heart and dagger symbol on it. I was thinking, and G suggested too, that I could use it for a small decoupage piece. I had 45 square feet of paper, so I’d have to figure out if I have enough or not. I also have a t-shirt from the original t-shirt grab bags they sent me that I plan on turning into a pillow because even though it says it’s a medium, it looks like a child’s medium. It was a cute one too with the Have a Nice Day album cover in rhinestones.

Bath and Body Works goodies! I picked up the sugar scrub, triple moisture body cream, and the fragrance mist in the new Forever Red. G recommended the sugar scrub and the mist. Apparently the mist isn’t as strong as the perfume. It had some staying power, though. I put a little on my wrist in the store to test it, and that stayed for quite a while.

My brother got Fright Night for Christmas, so we watched that last night. The movie actually wasn’t too bad. I was a bit skeptical at first because so many horror movies are turning to blood and gore to get people to watch, but this one was more about figuring out the vampire. That said, it wasn’t too original (well, it was a remake in the first place) and nothing someone who knows about vampires wouldn’t have seen before, but the characters sort of make the movie. That said, I can’t really stand Colin Farrell, so he probably made the perfect vampire. And oh, how I love David Tennant. I’ll watch something he is in and fall in love all over again. Speaking of which, I’ve been trying to figure out which of his filmography I have yet to see (I’m not including the voiceover work) because I’ve already watched:

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Secret Smile
Doctor Who
The Catherine Tate Show (as Russell Brand and the Ghost of Christmas Present)
Fright Night

…a bit of a small list looking at it, but I can watch The Decoy Bride on Amazon. The problem is the T.V. mini series he always does. I can’t seem to find them anywhere except for on DVD, and they’re a bit expensive. I do wish Rex Is Not Your Lawyer had aired here and taken off, but it didn’t even get a chance. Really, all they did was the pilot, and NBC chose not to pick it up (because they’ve been doing so well with new shows lately, amirite?). I shouldn’t be bitter. After all, this was back in 2010.

I’m working on the 2012 end of the year playlist. Any suggestions on what to include this year? I try to grab a bunch of songs from different genres. I’d grab some from dubstep, but it isn’t a genre I’m familiar with, so any suggestions there would be a major help.

I really need to remember to just start crossposting.
