...Just want to say Pi Day!

*such a dork*
Dear pharmaceutical industry: I love you. I love you so very, very much. You are my new friend.
I am not the stoic type. I realized that fully today, when I whimpered my way through a wisdom tooth extraction. Seriously, I sounded like a kicked puppy.
Christmas! I love Christmas. I like decorations, and candy, and yes, I unironically love Christmas music. But the best part is watching kids open presents and seeing their reactions.
I only get to see my niece and nephew around the holidays, so I don't really know what their interests are. (Though they are only three and two respectively, so it's not quite as bad--the best part for them is the wrapping paper.) This year, some of their gifts were: for her, a baby doll, one of those little barking and walking dogs, and a MobiGo; and for him, a toy dump truck and backhoe, and a dancing piano thing with Mega Bloks inside.
He ended up playing with the fuzzy little dog with the pink bow; she wanted the dump truck. (They both fought over the MobiGo. Apparently, they really love playing with my sister's tablet.)
Anyone who thinks gender roles are inherent and not taught, well, Dogbert would have something to say to them.
So, today is Black Friday. You'd think that, as I work at Walmart, I'd have a horror story about how crazy people were today.
Not so much.
Actually, my store was so slow in sales this morning that about half of the associates got to go home early (me included). Sucks for my bonus, but great for my blood pressure.
...Ended up crying like a baby. AGAIN. Curse you, Pixar, and your ridiculously sentimental films!
Though I must say, I kinda adore Merida. So far from the early, eternally passive Disney princesses.
Oh! And in my headcanon, Queen Elinor (Merida's mother) is totally Rapunzel's mom's sister.
I had to work Tuesday night, so I could watch the news on TV. Instead, as soon as my midnight break rolled around, I grabbed my cell phone and hit up the CNN site.
I totally didn't leap out of my chair, shout "YES!" and fistpump when I saw that CNN had called the election in favor of Obama. Not at all.
Except that I really, really did.
