My Christmas Wishlist...

You know what? I cannot justify spending any money on myself, but if I could, this is what I would get:



That's right, cushy slippers. Big rediculous-looking cushy slippers. And they would be as comfortable as I would imagine them. And why is it that things are never as we imagine them? I see people wearing things and think, "Man, I think I could look good in something like that." And then I go try an outfit just like it on and uh, nope, I don't. Or I think of something witty to say and think, "That would be so funny for me to say it." Then I say it and wish that I could just grab those words and stick them back in my mouth and swallow. Cause I got a lot of blank stares the minute I said my witty bit. Or, I schedule my day out just so, and imagine that it will all run smoothly and everything can get done just like I think it will and nope, that doesn't happen either.

So, I have gone to taking the "safe road". I don't have slippers (cause come on it isn't like they are expensive or anything) because I am afraid if I do they won't be what I imagine them to be. And I haven't decorated my house yet because I am afraid I can't do my imagination justice. Yet, the one thing I am hoping that I am right about is my kids. Cause I imagine them doing some amazing things. I'm just sayin'.

Have you ever seen that Brain Regan bit where he says something stupid and start grasping in the air, trying to grab the words to put them back in his mouth? yeah. That me. I feel ya!
And now, I think I know what Motherboard and I will be giving you for Christmas!

I am constantly dying inside because I've actually opened my mouth and said something that ended up stupid and rediculously embarrasing. But, have you ever tried to grab someone else's words and put them back in THEIR mouth for them?

That has happened with me with email more than once. I think I'm being witty... and then I f ind out that no one thought it was, or I have read it later and I can see that it could have come off as rude or unkind and it totally wasn't meant that way, and what's worse it's written down to be read and re-read!

I think the slippers are cute...where are they from? And, I remeber teachers and professors constantly telling us to be careful with email. Other people have a hard time reading tone in emails, so there are always misunderstandings. That and it's too easy to send it to the wrong place by mistake. There was this one girl in our spouses association that meant to send an email just to the girl who is president, but sent it to ALL 250 of us, instead. The email was very detailed and all about how she thought that the other girl could be doing a better job as president. oops!
