Brad and I got engaged on Christmas Eve! Brad drew a comic about it for all to enjoy:

50 Most Loathsome People

The BEAST 50 Most Loathsome People in America, 2007

The best one:

9. You

Charges: You believe in freedom of speech, until someone says something that offends you. You suddenly give a damn about border integrity, because the automated voice system at your pharmacy asked you to press 9 for Spanish. You cling to every scrap of bullshit you can find to support your ludicrous belief system, and reject all empirical evidence to the contrary. You know the difference between patriotism and nationalism -- it's nationalism when foreigners do it. You hate anyone who seems smarter than you. You care more about zygotes than actual people. You love to blame people for their misfortunes, even if it means screwing yourself over. You still think Republicans favor limited government. Your knowledge of politics and government are dwarfed by your concern for Britney Spears' children. You think buying Chinese goods stimulates our economy. You think you're going to get universal health care. You tolerate the phrase "enhanced interrogation techniques." You think the government is actually trying to improve education. You think watching CNN makes you smarter. You think two parties is enough. You can't spell. You think $9 trillion in debt is manageable. You believe in an afterlife for the sole reason that you don't want to die. You think lowering taxes raises revenue. You think the economy's doing well. You're an idiot.

Exhibit A: You couldn't get enough Anna Nicole Smith coverage.

Sentence: A gradual decline into abject poverty as you continue to vote against your own self-interest. Death by an easily treated disorder that your health insurance doesn't cover. You deserve it, chump.

This has been the longest week ever! Since school is out, I have had to work a forty hour week instead of my usual twenty. I know I shouldn't complain because most everyone works a forty hour week, but it really sucks. By 3:30 my back aches and I am ready for a nap. I'm not even looking forward to this weekend much, I just want it to be Monday.

I do have to work on Monday, but it shouldn't be too busy. Then Christmas Eve we will spend the night at my Mom's house and have early Christmas morning there, then drive to my Dad's. Then straight from there we are driving to Taos, NM to visit Brad's Mom. We are staying there until the 30th. I am really excited for this trip. I have been in snow after it is packed, but I really don't think I have been in snow while it is falling. I remember in first grade it snowed here in phoenix, but melted right when it touched the ground.

On New Years it will be Brad and I's three year anniversary. I am so happy with him!


It disgusts me that the government lets things like this go unpunished.

New Babies!

Well, there are two new babies in my life.

My roommate had her baby boy two months early on the morning of November 27. He is doing really well, but will probably be in the hospital for the next month or so while he gains weight. I can't wait for him to come home!

My other closest girlfriend had her second baby boy on Monday (only five days early). This is the first birth I have ever seen, and I thought it was amazing. I cried of course. Her family was home by the next day, and the new big brother is still trying to adjust, but he is doing a great job.

I love both of these families and I can't wait to start my own!
