So after all that wonderful feedback about the cons of sharing your blog with real-life friends, my best friend D_ was over for the New Year and I totally directed him to my posting about not wanting to share with friends. So I now have one friend IRL who knows about my blog, though I don't know if he'll actually read it. Seeing as how we haven't gone to the same school since 8th grade, most of our interaction is on the phone or online. So...he's not all that IRL anyway. But he's the best support a girl could have. And adorable! And he's a straight male! (Who is no longer single! Yay! Love you D_!)
Since I got a surprise holiday bonus at work today, I went wild and spent it. I got my first digital camera. (I am so terribly behind the times.) I also bought A_ a new ipod nano. I had gotten him an ipod radio and then realized it wouldn't work with his old ipod. C*mpU$a is going out of business and everything is on sale. Not huge but decent enough. So goodbye holiday bonus, goodbye.
I am excited about my camera. My cat Thomas, not so much.
His sister Katie was so unimpressed that I couldn't even get her picture. I will post more of my furry children after I figure out how to not take completely crappy pictures.
