Also, the office Christmas lunch didn't suck. It was actually kind of fun. I got a nice little champagne buzz, some decent food, and there were no stupid long speeches. People's outfits were totally amusing, too, which I always love. Seriously. Fashion choices included:

This morning, since I actually woke up early, I decided to head to the mall to see about spending my bonus. I didn't find anything I really wanted, except a gigantic gingerbread latte. I almost bought a few things, but I decided that I really didn't need a semi-formal outfit, even though it fit really well and it was a really pretty color. I also decided I didn't need a shirt that requires ironing, a pair of jeans that cost $75, a sweater with a velvet collar, a boucle jacket, or any vanilla lotion from Bath & Body Works. They had some new good-smelling stuff (for a change...lately, all their new scents have smelled like fruit that went bad three weeks ago), but I decided that I really didn't want to smell like food. Because then I would be hungry for sugar cookies or something all the time. Why is it that when you have money, you can never find anything worth spending it on, but when you're poor, you find all kinds of cool shit that you want to buy?

However, so you won't miss me, here's a little quiz to see how well you've been paying attention:
