Don’t worry, I’m still alive and well despite the weather’s repeated attempts at freezing me to death. I’ve been MIA on account of Christmas, New Years and my own laziness. I haven’t been to work or school since before Christmas, which means I haven’t got the slightest idea of what day of the week it is, how many episodes of NCIS I’ve watched, how many books I’ve read, when was the last time I wore make up or got up before 8 in the morning. It’s probably a good thing I have to work tomorrow so I’ll get back on some sort of schedule again. I told myself on New Years Eve that this year I’ll be all kinds of productive. So far the only productive thing I’ve done is save the princess in the New Super Mario Bros Wii game. But that took a lot of work so I really shouldn’t be too hard on myself.
This is the first year M and I spent Christmas together and therefore the first year we had to battle it out over where to spend it. I thought spending Christmas at my parents’ place was a great idea while M thought that Christmas should be spent in bum freaking Egypt with his parents. After a duel almost to the death, using cunning dialogue and manipulative suggestions, I came out victorious. We spent Christmas with my parents. After Christmas we spent a few days with M’s parents and I thought for sure I would die of boredom. I love M, and his parents are really thoughtful and nice, but their idea of an exciting evening is sitting in the dark and reading the paper. By the third day of reading the paper in silence, I was ready to break my own finger for an excuse to get out of there.
I didn’t break my own finger, which I’m grateful for now. I’ll probably need all my fingers to operate my alarm clock again. I haven’t used it in a almost a month so I’ll need to relearn how to use it. Luckily I’ll only have to learn how to turn the darned thing on; I have a pretty good idea about how to shut it off. Mostly it’s just a question of how hard I can throw it at the wall.
Anyway, I’m back. You can look forward to a year of sarcasm and fun with the awesomeness I like to call Ziva’s Inferno. Bigger, better and now with 10 supplementary vitamins, 200 grams of fibre, no fat, no taste and no rat poison! *
