Work: Heh...My Secret Santa recipient is here today, so now I actually have to get creative about sneaking my gift for her onto her desk. The way we're working it is that we give small gifts Monday-Thursday, and then give a more substantive gift on Friday.

My recipient this year works longer hours than I do because she is on a 4-day workweek. Plus, she rarely leaves her desk during the day, except for lunch. So it'll be a fun challenge getting today's gift to her. (g)

Weather: The weather today is gorgeous! Completely clear blue sky. I'm astounded. I wonder if Braes Bayou is still as full as it was yesterday evening?

Writing: I haven't done a lick of work on Avriet all week because I've felt brain-dead by the time I got home. I hope to work on it some today. I want to experiment some on the first chapter--write it from Allistaire's point of view when he is being released from the dungeon. Since I've decided that he will be the protagonist, I want to introduce him first, and I want to introduce him in such a way that readers can feel as if they are in the dungeon cell with him and feeling what he feels. The Chapter 1 of the NaNo drafts is too distanced.

Heard in WalMart: A little girl and her mother were in the clothing department. The little girl walked over to look at some skirts hanging on the end of an aisle. Suddenly, she burst out with:

"Mama! This is a hoochie-mama skirt! Mama, can I have this when I'm nine?"

I couldn't see the expression on her mother's face but I'm sure it was priceless. (g)

I got myself a new and much-needed pair of tennis shoes. They are blinding white. I also bought myself a new white blouse.

Feet: I didn't get the ingrown toenail removed today. When I arrived at the doctor's office, he told me that I needed to still be on an antibiotic before he would do an invasive procedure. So the appointment has been rescheduled to next Monday at 1:30pm. Since I get off work at 4pm, I'm just going to take the rest of the day off after the appointment.

Mark and I had lunch at Quizno's today, and I indulged in a slightly larger chicken carbonara sandwich than I did last time. Naughty me!

I'm also taking the antibiotic with egg-nog. Yum!

Tom: "Should egg-nog be considered a food or a beverage?"
Me: "Does it matter? It's just GOOD."

Movie: Tomorrow night, Mark, Tom, and I are going to see King Kong. I am not a fan. I've never seen the movie and was very dubious about seeing this one. But something in a trailer of it that I saw on TV got me interested.

Music: Hey, Rich! Today, I heard "Kiss from a Rose." I had heard it before and liked it very much, but I never knew what it was called. It made me smile, thinking of Rose Lathander. :)
