When I'm tired, stuff comes out.

I really have nothing important to say. Just wanted to enjoy the keyboard I got for Christmas.. it lights up in three different colors (red, blue, purple), and it has a gaming pad on the side, so I can stop moving my hands all over my desk when I need to do things with my WoW character. Super wonderful present from my super wonderful hubby :) He also got me Guitar Hero 3, hopefully after I get out of work tomorrow I'll be able to get a few songs in. It looks like there are quite a few good ones! The interface is a bit different from GH2, which is in turn a bit different from Rock Band.. but I'm sure I'll adjust. Hubby's making dinner.. and it smells REALLY good. I think we're having chicken parmesan, or at least garlic bread. I love the way he makes chicken parmesan. He uses breaded chicken patties, and bakes them in the oven, then he puts lots and lots of cheese on 'em and marinara sauce. Sometimes we don't even bother with pasta. And they're sooooo delicious. yum!! I am getting hungry just sitting here thinking about it. Of course, the last time I ate was like at noon or something, so that's not too much of a surprise, I suppose.

Sigh. One more long day at work, then I get three days off. I am going to need them! Tonight hubby and I were going to go out for a bit, but I didn't get out of work until after 6pm, and since I have to get up tomorrow at 2am, I'm pushing things just staying up right now. Usually if I get at least 6 hours of sleep I'm ok. 8pm is 6 hours, but I really want dinner. After that I'm going to bed though, and hopefully a full tummy will help me sleep. Or give me weird dreams, but either way, I'm looking forward to hitting my pillow.

I forgot about doing a Flashback Friday this week. Well, honestly I did remember for a second at work, but I wasn't near a computer to put one up. And really, it IS still Friday, so I suppose I can end this lovely little ramble with a half-hearted attempt at one. Yesterday I spent about an hour staring at YouTube, going through old cartoons that I used to watch when I was a kid. I still had the theme songs from a couple of them stuck in my head for part of the day today. Jem was one, and Thundercats, and Voltron, and of course the New Kids on the Block cartoon.. that hit just before I started getting interested in them as a group, as I do recall. There were so many fun cartoons out when I was a kid.. it's hard to find ones that are anything like that today. There are still good cartoons, but nothing like Jem. For those who never watched it, or even heard of it, I'll post the opening credit thing here. Nothing says 80's like this cartoon, lol!!!

Gawd, I haven't heard that song in years! The make-up is the best too. I almost hate to admit it, but I used to watch this faithfully.

Now that we've got an XBox 360 of our very own (thanks to my Mom!) I've been spending quite a bit of time playing both GH II and III as well as Rock Band. I've actually gotten pretty good at medium but doubt I will ever be able to make the transition to hard. I figure once I'm done fooling around with the guitar on medium then I'm going to sit down and figure those darned drums out!

Hope you got some much-needed sleep. Enjoy those days off of yours!

Felicia got me the coolest gadget. It is a cam corder the size of a cigarette pack. It's called Flip Video and it is really neat. It runs on regular batteries, no need for fancy chargers and will take up to one hour of video. You can hook it up to your T.V. and watch your videos or upload them to the internet!

I'm going to get a new keyboard with a U.S.B. port tomorrow.

My dad died Christmas day. He was born on Christmas Day. What are the odds?

Glad you had a good holiday.

Your dinner made me hungry! I hope it was as good as it sounded. :)
