Okay, fine, I'm doing Holidailies again.
Er... I was seriously pondering not doing so. Honestly, because of this reddit thing, which I am not feeling warm and fuzzy about. I keep thinking stuff like, "Great, everyone who has pictures of a cute 3-year-old will get tons of votes, and comments on journal entries and voting them down just sounds like drama..." That, combined with the currently-vague possibility of going to Oregon towards the end of the month and presumably having no net access there, made me seriously consider not doing it.
But okay, fine. I've done this for umpteen years, I would feel weird not doing it, I already do 750words.com so here I am at the last minute. Sigh. Anyhoo...
Hi, I'm Jennifer, I'm too old to be a kid and yet somehow still not old enough to pull off being an adult quite yet. Awkward!
For all intents and purposes, my immediate family boils down to my mom, who has been nutters for quite a few years now and I'm sure you'll get to hear stories because it is the season of Extra Emotional Nuttery. Currently she is insisting that she wants a Kindle because carrying around Debbie Macomber paperbacks in her purse is too heavy any more, despite having never used any other electronic device (2 PDA's and a Wii) that she's bought in her life. The logic fairy has, alas, never existed around here.
I have no pictures of cute 3-year-olds to provide here, I'm sorry to say, but uh... I'll try to come up with something periodically. Hopefully it's funny.
Oh, and I finally got my driver's license. The first step to REAL adulthood, I say. Yes, so folks tell me that holding down a job and paying rent does that-- and compared to some folks I used to know, yeah, that's true-- but I don't think you're really an adult until you can totally take care of yourself without help, and depending on the vagarities of public transport does not cut that mustard in California. So, huzzah! I'll probably talk more about this when the inevitable New Year's Resolution stuff comes up.
