December Fun

Wow. December already?
It's already time to go shopping for other people? I guess that's a good thing. I'm a big fan of holiday cheer. What bothers me is that it doesn't last all year...
I wanted to talk about a book series written by Scott Westerfeld. It's called the Uglies Series. I'm not going to talk about the story line, because I want everyone to read it. I just want to talk about how it makes me feel. It's my favorite series EVER. Trust me, that's saying a lot. I basically live at the library. I'm always looking for a good book to read. But this series makes me feel great about myself when I read it. It's the kind of feeling you get when you where a new perfume/ cologne, or when you wear a new dress, sweater, (nude) nylons or some sweet ballet flats. It's the feeling that makes you want to take pictures of yourself on your own camera with a sweet mini tripod so that everyone can see how great you look. It's the feeling that makes you wish you had some drawing paper and pencils or paint so that you could try to capture that feeling and have it forever. Anyway, i recommend that series. :)
You know what else I love? Music. Yeah, i know everyone else in the world does, too.. but that doesn't stop me from loving the feeling I get when I find a new artist or when Dan shows me a new band on his sweet new iPod (wishful thinking?).. Yeah. Music is a major part of my life. Not only cd's or mp3's.. but playing music on the piano is fun, too. I wouldn't mind having a few more piano books of my favorite artists.. like Mae, Regina Spektor, The Hush Sound, The Format.. etc.
I also like projects. I've been obsessed with photoshop lately, because it gives me something to do. I've been thinking about checking out some DIY books from the library for ideas on new projects i could do.
I like Winter. I don't like being cold, though, so I have to wear socks almost constantly, preferably some ankle socks or those socks that are the same on the toe and the heel.. those are cool. I do like the interesting designs on some socks, though. They're kind of fun to show off. The only problem with them is that you have to wear pants.
Skinny Jeans are weird and not flattering, especially the ones that look like blue butter you've spread thin over your legs. Gross. The ones that are just a little loose are cute, though.. as long as they don't hug your ankles to the point of cutting off your circulation. I still prefer comfortable skirts over pants, though.
Anyway, this has been a good rambling letter, don't you think? It's always a good feeling to get your thoughts out onto something you can see. Do you think that's why I've always kept a journal? Drawing is kind of the same thing, but not as convienient or straightforward as a journal.
Thanks for reading!

The whole time while reading this I was trying to find some subliminal message econcoded in the random bolding on some letters. I was disapointed not to find anyway. Nice post, but the ocd in me is very confused.
