Well hello dear friends. It’s been a lonnnnge minute hasn’t it? I feel like a big nerd saying this but, I missed you guys! I hadn’t realized what large part my blog family plays in my life. Being away this long has made me appreciate you guys that much more:-).

So, here’s the situation. I have a new cord now, but still limited internet access. My computer is a desktop so, even though we have wireless in the house, I can’t use it. I could use my mom’s laptop once again but, as fate would have it, she found my blog. Yep, it finally happened guys. She clicked the lovely orange “B” in her dropdown menu and found her way to the most derogatory post I’ve ever made on Love is a Minefield. I won’t go into details though for the sake of time. Let’s just say the word “fuckery” is the latest addition to her vocabulary. She’s been using the word daily (in the wrong context) but I won’t even go there. Safe to say that I’m going to be pulling up Blogger as rarely as possible on her computer. So, what I’m doing now is typing my entry in Word on my own computer and then saving it on a disk to publish it on her computer. Cause that’s how much I love yall.

What’s the happy-haps? How was everybody’s Christmas? I know I’m late as ever and you’re blogs probably tell that story. Don’t worry, I’ll be doing rounds a little later. Christmas in these parts was wonderful. Not so much on the gifting end because the majority of my family has been laid off in the past six months (including my mom). I told everyone not to get me anything, and they didn’t. Times are too tough to worry about buying presents for people, and I know that. Although I had a couple of uncles who slipped me a few dollars, so I ended up with more than I expected to get. But enough about the material things. What I enjoyed most about Christmas was just being around family.

We have our celebration on Christmas Eve so I slept in and lazed around on Christmas day. The day after Christmas, I went to the movies with my sister and her ex/boyfriend. I’ve been wanting to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button ever since the summer when I saw the teaser, so that’s what we decided on. The movie was simply amazing. It’s been a long time since a film has touched me like that one did. It made me laugh, it made me cry. It was aesthetically pleasing thanks to the lovely and brilliant direction of David Fincher. He directed Fight Club as well. All of his films are awesome. Anyway, I loved every minute of it and there was never a dull moment even though the running time was almost three hours. I can’t even begin to review the movie here because I’d end up on tangents out of this world and it’s already late (3:42am lol). Hit up Karrie B.’s blog for her take on it. I’ll just say see the movie. I’m sure you’ll appreciate it.

Today I was supposed to see my father but that fell through as usual. He’s the most notorious flake in the world. I knew when he said that he wanted to see my sisters and I, that it wasn’t going to happen. But I’m used it by now.

Hmmm, what else is new? Absolutely nothing on the boy/man front lol. I somehow expected things to be different once I got home but nope. Still single as ever. I do have a “date” on Tuesday, if you wanna call it that. It’s with my very first boyfriend. He and I dated for about three months before I dumped him for Ex. Anyway, we’ve stayed on friendly terms since the break up. He’s been abroad in France for the past semester and he’s only home for a two weeks until he goes to Switzerland for second semester. We hung quite a bit during the summer, but I was determined not to get too close to him because I wasn't up to a long distance situation like that. How ever the date goes down, it won't mean anything because he's leaving again so soon.

I generally hate making the What I Did Today posts, but I figured one was in order since I’ve been away so long. I probably won’t be on my daily writing schedule until school is back in session, but I’ll make sure I post at least three times a week until then.

= ) It's been too long! LOL - I've been coming on every-other-day to see if you made a new post. Glad to see that you're back.

LOL @ your mom discovering your blogpost. Of course, she has to read the most hair-raising entry.

I can't wait until you're able to post regularly again. Enjoy the rest of your holidays and your family.

Welcome back, chica!!

Moms and blogs? Don't mix. My mom's read some of my posts about sex and was instantly grossed out. She's not ready to hear her "baby" talking so grown, so she stays away! Lol.

A date! Fun! Maybe it's just me, but I love dating. Nice, carefree male company.

We didn't have Christmas tree this year. (BOO!) Yours looks really nice though. Glad you had a good holiday!
