Merry Various Non-Denominational Holiday Season's greetings gentle readers!
     I've reclused into knitting while watching Studio Ghibli movies mode for the last few days when I haven't been at work.  School is all wrapped up now, all my packages have come in the mail, and all loose upsetting ends have been re-consolidated as blurred memories.  The only real cheer-stealer now is that LMFAO is on February 9th as opposed to last night.  Oh well, at least I have Fridays off next semester.
     To make life even sweeter, The Prince of Egypt is on Teletoon.  Scantily clad, singing animated Jewish men?  Happy holidays to us all!  They are God's chosen people for a reason.
     My mum works till 5 tonight so we can't go out and enjoy Norwegian Christmas Eve with my Dad's side of the family.  Next year, we're going without her.  I love doing Christmas the night before.  Scandinavian traditions are the first family gatherings I look forward to, but we haven't gone for the last few years because of one of us working too late.  The only good thing to come out of not going this year is that we are having steak for dinner tonight.  I can live with that.
     Anyway, I sincerely hope everyone has a restful and enjoyable holiday.  If that isn't enough, so many family events give us perfectly legitimate reasons to get buck wild with our friends to celebrate the end of the holidays!

Fine Entertainment

     My brother and I love Beavis and Butthead.  Pants were nearly soiled when we learned of the show's triumphant return to MTV this fall.  We watch it religiously together every Thursday.  It is my brother's burfday today, so I made him a super nice picture as a supplementary gift to show my sibling appreciation on his special day.
      So many people are celebrating birthdays this month.  I'm concerned by all this juggling partying with finals and finance.  I am getting very close to broke, but feeling oh so joyful.  I'll keep doing mini posts until I'm free on Winter break.

     I've been formulating posts for the last...practically...month, but between finals and being too broke to afford paper Thing of Stuff has taken an uncomfortable seat on the back burner.  Honestly, I would be drawing all the time if I had the choice, or at least scribbling down quirky anecdotes.  Sadly, this is not the life of a broke-ass student trying not to get C's in all her courses.
     I had a dream once, that I had a pet hamster in an aquarium.  I forgot to feed it for a month because I didn't know I had it because I don't own a hamster.  When I finally realized a small animal depended on me, I was ready to get my maternal instinct on to sustain a small rodent's life.
     To my horror, the hamster was so thin that its skin was desiccated around  its spinal column.  BUT HOW WAS IT STILL ALIVE?!?!?!?
     The inspiration for this monstrosity must have come from an episode of Spongebob eons back, before the show bombed.  Scarred for life, for sure.  Doesn't the voice sound like Mrs. Bighead from Rocko's Modern Life?

    Obviously, you can all see my mega art skillllz in Paint.  I am so sorry you had to become that hamster.
