It's All About the Money

How much money is in your wallet?

Cash-wise, I think I've got some loose change in there. I really don't carry cash on me. Cards are so much more convenient! (And really, they are safe. You're backed by your bank AND VISA, so I don't know why people have such an aversion to them). But I have to say, I kinda miss having cash. Remember when having a $20 bill was a big deal. Now it's just money. I guess that's what working at a bank does to you. It's funny when people ask me questions like how it feels to handle so much money during the day. I honestly don't even think about it. It's just paper. Kind of strange to think that that paper is what people work for...a lousy piece of paper. Just crazy.

Okay, kind of got off topic there. I love my job.


'Tis the Season!

What are you most looking forward to this Christmas season?

I love Christmas. I have ALWAYS loved Christmas, though I feel like I've become a bit of a Scrooge in the past few years. I don't know what my deal is, but I just am not in the mood to ever put up Christmas lights, but I know once we do, I'll be glad. Because I love turning on just the Christmas lights and watching a movie, or cuddling up on the couch. I also love the snow (not necessarily the cold), and I love watching it fall. I love the spirit of Christmas, the music, the joy, the happiness. I wish it could last all year, for reals!


In real life news, it's been 6 months since our last 'major' car catastrophe, so it was time. Don't worry, we survived this one too. Can't wait until May for our next one!


I feel most self-conscious when...

...when I have to talk about myself, or when people ask me questions about myself. I really don't like it. I don't know why. I just get all sorts of self-conscious, and I kind of shut down and don't like to talk. Or if I have to do something in front of lots of people (or even a few people, really). Just don't like it. So....yeah...quit asking me questions...I'm all sorts of self-conscious even answering these daily post questions.


I really wish....

....that our cars wouldn't break down like they do.
....that I could just quit my job (and be a millionaire! I'd even take half a million. I'm not selfish!)
....that I had the guts to say what I was thinking (though it may be a good thing I don't. I could be pretty mean!)
....that the school would just fire one of the counselors so we could get a job. (like right now would be nice)
....that we just knew what we were doing already! (I need to quit praying for patience!)
....that my body would be normal again (with my current weight of course)
....that people would just do their jobs and not tick me off (though I'm beginning to wonder if they think that that is their job, and that's why they do it!)
....that facebook would not allow status updates that are nothing but stupid complaints
(man, I'm on one tonight! Sorry!!)



Today's prompt is to list five words that make me giggle.
Well, I can't think of five. But a few quotes/ phrases we currently are quoting...

"Well, good for you. You're probably going to get a belly ache!"
(From a Jimmy Kimmel video challenge thing, where he told parents to film themselves telling their kids that they ate all their Halloween candy)

"Butt Fumble"
(In regards to Mark Sanchez running into his own player and fumbling the ball. Quite funny.

"I am the guy on the standee!"
(Hottie Tom Brady Funny or Die video)

If I can think of more, I'll add them. Put me on the spot and my mind goes blank!
