I'm just sitting here listening to my scanner. I love these things. I'm such a voyeur. It has something to do with my creativity. I like to hear the way people talk when they're being relatively natural. I'm not entirely certain how to work this thing. I have a AR8000 if that means anything to anyone. Oh man this woman is handing out her credit card over the phone, eeeee, now that makes me uncomfortable. I don't know how to make it stop scanning and stay on one spot when I find something I'm interested in. Maybe I'm supposed to just hand enter that frequency. People are all talking about shopping right now. I am so stressed about shopping. I want so badly to have a love filled, mellow, joyous Christmas, but I always manage to get so caught up in the stress of it. I swear no matter how early I start, no matter how earnest my efforts, it's always a man commercial shopping frenzied rush at the end. Don't get me wrong, there's a part of me that enjoys the shopping, and the communal effort of it all, but I know that the very best moments happen in between all of that. You know, the little accidental happenings, like last year when I was at the nail salon and the women's children came in and sung classic carols. It was so beautiful it made me cry. Here we all were getting our nails done, and these beautiful hard working Vietnamese people, who do all of this so that their children can get ahead, had a better sense of Christmas or Holiday Spirit than any of us.
Beau had his friend Steven over yesterday, and today he has his first official girlfriend, Juliet, over. They are so cute. I took a picture to show you but I can't find the cable for the cybershot, boo.
Okay well, I have a mountain of ebay stuff to slog through so I'll catch up with you guys later.
Kisses this time, big French ones,
