Monday random thoughts...

So how was everyone’s weekend? Mine was extremely uneventful, so I really don’t have much to say. (Well THIS doesn’t make for an interesting blog post… :)) Oh, except for the heartbreaking UT/Tech game on Saturday. If UT had just managed to move the ball a little more slowly in those last couple minutes, Tech wouldn’t have had time to score that last touchdown. And there’s one thing that annoys me more than ungracious losers – and that’s ungracious winners. Storming the field and pulling down goal posts is NOT a classy move…

And speaking of ungracious winners and losers – tomorrow is Election Day… and I fully expect to see examples of each, no matter the outcome. To be honest, I’m so glad this election is almost over. I’m seriously getting tired of hearing about it day after day after day after day. Although I don’t know – I suppose it was a refreshing change from the usual Bush Bashing the media pours out on a regular basis…

I’m listening to Christmas music on my iPod. Yeah, that’s right. Christmas music. I figure if my television is already bombarding me with holiday commercials, I might as well succumb to this particular seasonal diversion. I just made my list of Christmas gift recipients last night, so I can start to peruse online stores. As usual, I plan on doing the bulk of my Christmas shopping online. It’s much less hectic that way (unless your packages get lost in the mail or the item you wanted has suddenly gone on backorder until February… then it can be a bit of a pain…).

I’m drinking my usual morning cappuccino… and as I mentioned in my last post, I can’t wait for the holiday drinks and the red and white cups at Starbucks. Our store has a few of the new drinks written on their “coming soon!” board – they’re coming out with something called an “espresso truffle,” which just sounds like something too wonderful for words. My guess is that this drink will include a generous infusion of chocolate. And of course they’ll be serving peppermint mochas and gingersnap lattes (which I’m assuming is similar to the gingerBREAD latte they’ve served in the past). I’m so excited… is it silly to be excited about coffee??? Yeah, it probably is. But I’m DRINKING coffee, so I’m sure half my excitement is related to the copious amounts of caffeine now racing through my veins…

Well, I guess that’s all I’ve got for today… I now go to await the unveiling of Starbucks’ new holiday drinks… (do you think I’m addicted to coffee?? Nah, I just LIKE it… there’s a difference… right???)

Funny, I was thinking abut people today who run 26.2 miles in a stretch and I know I'll never be one of them, in fact I've known that for quite a while now.

Starbucks holiday cups, yeah soon we'll see those. Hope we see some cooler weather her in Austin too. Soon.

Don't think I'll even watch the election returns tonight.

Too tired.

I have a feeling there will be a "winner" whether I watch or not.

I do wish we could have some cooler weather here! But I'll be moving to Chicago sometime this year (or however long it takes my house to sell), so I'm trying to be happy with the warm weather while it lasts. :)
