Last night I went out to this neighborhood that makes a tradition of super, uber decorating their houses. So there were hundreds of people roaming around looking at all the pretty Christmas lights and decorations. Someone even made a "Harry Christmas" house with Harry Potter characters. My super favorite part was the Kettle corn. I'm not supposed to eat Kettlecorn on account of my braces, but man, sometimes life is just too short for silly little rules like that. By the end of the night my hands were so cold that I could barely text. I should really invest in some mittens.

This week was supposed to be the week I got my bottom braces on too, but that didn't happen because of my new job. Actually I didn't show up without warning, but it's really hard to try and notify people when their boss lets them take an uber long Thanksgiving holiday. Good for them though, seriously. So now they want me to make the appointment at like 8 or 9, but I start work at 7. Then they said they couldn't do it after 3:30p. Why? I have no idea; I think it's silly. So basically I know I'll get them on at some point, but no idea when I actually will. Better late then never though right?

I still have not finished unpacking the apartment. I feel like a lazy fool. I've been here almost a full month now and I still have boxes and clutter around specific corners and walls. I always hang my pictures last though so I can choose the best spots for things. I know I have the excuse that I've been working and I'm tired when I get home, but it's still just and excuse. And if I could use excuses to finish putting my home together, believe me, I would. But unfortunately I am the only one who can actually get anything done around here haha.

Ever since I was a kid, I've gotten nauseous from the smell of leather. I can sniff a leather coat and be fine, but as soon as I sit in a car with leather seats for more than thirty minutes, my stomach is in shambles. It makes me wonder why I have such a reaction to it. I mean, I like cows. They are my favorite animal...but it doesn't stop me from eating them. So the only thing I can think is that I'm having a reaction to something that the leather is treated with before it's made into a seat or whatever. Either way, it makes me sick, I don't like it.
I never really played too many old Nintendo games. But I really enjoy watching the Angry Video Game Nerd review them. He's sarcastic, vulgar, and amazingly hilarious. He doesn't review them to be mean, it's all in good fun. The guy is such a huge Nintendo buff, that honestly he's the only one who should be doing reviews on them. His basement is literally just walls of Nintendo stuff and grey cartridges. Anyways, if you need a laugh and want a few in a couple of minutes check out the Angry Video Game Nerd. He even has his own theme song.

I bought The Sims 3 Late Night and it's really fun. It's kind of like an improved version of the GameCube version of The Sims called "Urbs." Remember that one? It was kind of a superficial game because you had to go around to different neighborhoods and buy special clothes of each neighborhood in order for the people there to want to have anything to do with you. Then when you became like number one super popular you moved on to the next one...but I digress. Sims 3 Late Night is similar, except without all the superficiality. And you can become a vampire. A cool one though, not a stupid Twilight one.
Tequila is very, very bad...stuff. I drank it once with a mixer and regretted it severely later. Everything was fine until the middle of the night, or I suppose sometime in the early morning. I felt like I had to burp and yet I could not. I kept swallowing more and more saliva to try and quell the burning in my throat, but was unsuccessful. Unbeknownst to me, I was experiencing acid reflux. It is wicked uncomfortable...so know when I drink, I stick to vodka. But I never drink and drive because I don't want to accidently kill anyone OR myself!
