I can write short posts, too.

I was feeling a bit gray today, so I decided to do the following:

-Treat myself to a French toast brunch/dinner.

-Buy something to make me smile.  I gave myself one rule:  the thing I was buying in question had to make me happy.  It didn't have to make sense or necessarily be useful.

So after eating said comforting French toast, I bought the following things:

-A purple pig lamp
-A sinister Hello Kitty pin.  (I believe this is the REAL Hello Kitty.  Why else would she have taken over East Asia if she didn't have an agenda of world domination?  My theory: she's stocking up a pile of pink missiles somewhere.  Guantanamo?)
-A Snoopy-themed hanging organizer.  I'm going to add it to the pile of crap on my bed and hope it all sorts itself out.
-A New Year's card that I am going to give to myself.  IT IS PRETTY AND HAS A GOLD FAN ON IT.
-A pair of shiny new headphones that has removable colors that I can mix and match.  Seriously, who wants to wear headphones that are the same color?  (Currently wearing silver and blue.)

It's New Year's next week (they don't call it Chinese New Year here, just New Year) and it's the Year of the Rabbit.  I'm hoping to go to the south of the island if all the train and bus tickets aren't booked (they most likely totally are) and the hotels aren't reserved up the wazoo.  I have a sneaking suspicion I'm going to hear a lot of mei you ban fa, but I'll see what I can come up with.

Happy Rabbit Year, everyone!


  1. There IS something nefarious about Hello Kitty, isn't there?

  2. Just came over from Grab a Pen.

    But Happy New Year!


  3. @Cacy: I don't buy that sweet pink kitty act FOR ONE MINUTE. Have you seen what goes on over at LOLCats? *shakes head*

    @Misha: Hey there! Glad you made it over! Happy Rabbit Year.

  4. I hadn't seen LOLCats.

    Until now.

    My oh my. The cuteness will overtake the world one day, and we won't know what hit us until we're bowing in submission to our kitty overlords.

  5. Cacy--

    There is Hello Kitty wine available at the nearby 7-11. I'm afraid that day has already come.
