I think every week should have a holiday. One night, besides Friday, where I can stay up as late as I want because I don't have to worry about getting up the next morning. One morning, besides Saturday, where I can sleep in as late as I want and then lay in bed for another hour watching Farscape.

Yep. That's what I did yesterday morning, and it was lovely. In general, I had a semi-productive lazy day. I laid around a lot, but I also did some laundry, picked out several outfits from my closet to take with me on vacation, went to the grocery store with the roomie, and grilled some hamburgers for dinner.

We had what I consider a truly American dinner. Hamburgers, tater tots, corn on the cob and some Mike's hard limeade. It was full of starch, and just about my favorite meal ever! Then, I was fortunate enough to have a perfect view of Lincoln's fireworks from my apartment balcony last night. Gorgeous fireworks with none of the up-close noise! Nor did I have to deal with the traffic. It was great, and the fireworks made me so excited. Apparently, I am 12 when it comes to fireworks. I kept saying "fantastic!" to no one but myself.

So that was my 4th. What I did not love were the ever-so-kind (that's sarcasm, by the way) folks who were shooting off fireworks right outside our building until nearly 1 am. Hence, Heather is a sleepy girl today. And now that I only have three working days until vacation, you can imagine how low my motivation to work is. Bleh.

Speaking of work, I better go try to do some...
Tonight, I did it. I finally sat down and watched an entire episode of The Office. Congrats, flist! Your love and adoration for this show has rubbed off on me. Granted, I've only seen one episode - I meant to watch both episodes that were on tonight, but I got confused as to the times - but I think I loved it. The roomie and I laughed hysterically throughout the entire episode. Or at least, I laughed hysterically. [profile] enigmaticblues laughed, but I'm not sure if she would classify it as 'hysterically' or not. ;-) Anyway, not only did I laugh, but I could definitely see glimmers of character storylines that are sure to pull me in if I let them. Of course, I'm going into it biased towards loving it. I know my flist, and I know that you guys like good TV. So, I definitely want to watch more. Next Thursday, here I come!

(FYI for those who care, the episode I watched was The Injury.)

In other news, things at work have been looking up lately. Because I have an obsession with bulleted lists, I will now use one to discuss some of the stuff that's been going on this week:

Work Stuff - Cut For A Bit Of Length )

Other than that, only one week to vacation! Six days with my parents and four with [profile] shannigansx. I'm so excited!!!

Well, it's vacation time for me (finally!), and I'm off to my grandma's in Kansas tomorrow morning for Christmas. The rest of my family is already there. This will be the first time I've seen my mom in about three months, my dad in about six months, and my brother in a year. I'm very much looking forward to seeing them.

Anyway, since grandma has dial-up and since there will be five of us in my grandma's tiny townhouse for the next six days, I'm thinking that my LJ access will be limited. So I wanted to wish everyone on my f-list a Merry Christmas! I'll miss you while I'm gone.
