A Blurb About My New Paper Shredder

This Christmas my Dad bought me a paper shredder (which I have been asking for for about 3 years now.)

It shreds magnificently. Its all I can do not to scour my entire apartment and shred Every. Spare. Scrap. Or perhaps the box FULL of sensitive documents to be destroyed. The only thing stopping me is that it would probably annoy the crap out of my neighbors.

Teehee. What fun.

This morning I was sitting in my car, minding my own business, patiently waiting for the barista to GIMME my freakin' latte when suddenly CRASH the lady behind me takes her foot off the break (mistakenly thinking it was in park) and rear-ends me. Assessing that the damage isn't of epic proportions and no one is hurt I proceeded to calm the lady down [She was freaking out a little. I was strangely zen about it all], collect my latte [lets not underestimate the healing powers of white coffee with a splash of white chocolate and vanilla], and pull out of the way so we could exchange our insurance info and all that fabulousness. 

Aside from my latte stand adventure there's all kinds of stuffs going on in the world of Amanda. I'm being promoted as of January which is scary and exciting in equal measures. 

I've been preparing for Christmas with lots of shopping. I'd take pictures of the mountain of presents except my camera battery is d-e-a-d and I seem to have completely lost my battery charger for it. I suspect I left it somewhere in my travels this year. Time for a new one, oh darn. 

Oh, AND I'm getting a Wii for Christmas. 

Does it get any better? I feel like a little kid. Normally I have a serious case of the Bah-Humbugs but I'm feelin' the whole holiday season this year.

Things have been a little crazy lately.

Thanksgiving was awesome, we [my mother's family, my boyfriend, and I] ate lots of delectable holiday goodness and then tried to play Apples to Apples...but the food-coma we were all in made it difficult to go on. Eventually we gave up and waddled/rolled our separate ways.

Meanwhile, there have been all kinds of crazy things going on at work. I'm interviewing for a promotion this coming friday. Yikes.

I'm thinking 2011 could be a big year for me. It will certainly be a year for change. I can only hope that all the change is for the better.
