Yesterday was a day for finishing things. Our internet was down, so I was really productive.

In the morning I worked out and then went to get one tire put on my car. I know, I should do them in pairs. But I just put tires on my car a year ago, and I wasn't about to pay for two when I only needed one. tire. I have sneaking suspicion that Farm & Fleet fleeced me. I think maybe the seal was just broken, but they just replaced the tire without checking. Blah.

I came home and finished the new Zelda game for DS. The Spirit Tracks? Way fun! Who knew driving a train could be so intense?! But it's done. Over. Finito. Kaput.

Then I sat and finished a book I'd been reading called The Calling: A Year in the Life of an Order of Nuns. Let me tell you a secret. I love nuns. Love them! The book was pretty good, although her choices about how the book was arranged really made little sense to me. But it was still interesting.

And after that? I finished a book of poetry I'd been reading by Billy Collins. I love that man's poetry. He's my poetic idol.

I took down the Christmas tree and all the decorations, boxed them, put them away. Fed the fish and the cat.

Did I tell you we got a Betta fish? Robb's nephew gave it to him. The cat loves it! That's why we keep it WAAAAY up high.

So yeah...then I threw out the rest of the Christmas stuff...old cookies, old cake, etc. etc. etc. It was time.

Hooray for New Year's purge.

And today? I'm doing nothing but looking hot in my tank top and bed head. But seriously? I'm in the best shape of my life right now. In the middle of winter. After the holidays. How does that happen?!

And my Lady Gaga CD came today. Hooray for Amazon!

And now this random post is over. I'll stop boring you.

Pics of said tank top and bed head? ;-)

Never thought I would say this about a pop artist, but I thoroughly enjoy LG and her music. Who else writes lyrics like "I want your ugly, I want your disease"? That, and I don't think she's entirely serious, which makes it all the better.

Welcome back :)

Sounds like you had a lovely, lovely day. I want one of those!

Oh, and glad to hear you liked Spirit Tracks. Maybe I'll pick it up. Full disclosure: I haven't finished a Zelda since OOT. I played through some of WW, got lost and gave up, and I've played TP for about 10 minutes. I've never played PH. I guess the bloom is off the rose for me.

Anyway, hope you continue to enjoy your day of bed head, tank top and overall hotness :)

Phantom Hourglass is crap. It's fun for the first two times you have to repeat the same dungeon, and then it's a chore...

But Spirit Tracks is great.

And...I didn't take a photo. I should have. Dang.

Wow, that's more then what I've done all day, bravo for you! And for some reason that nun book is sounding really interesting to me.

It really is very interesting. Did you know they're only allowed 2 habits? And if one gets ruined...well, then they only have one left.

And honestly, that's usually more than I get done in a week.
