we're going to skip along

Current tune: "In the Waiting" by: Zero 7

Despite the consistently depressing mood of my holiday stay at home, I began wrapping holidays gifts for friends and family today. The day was spent doing monstrous loads of laundry from my suitcases (that I had yet to unpack), tracking down gifts I had bought overseas for people and chocolate, and making more cute gift tags.

I had a late night last night and am going through a mood that will probably last awhile while I am home. The depression that is beginning to sweep our nation has been less than kind to me, and I have a personal vendetta against it.

I do, however, have full faith in our newly elected president. I do not know, honestly, why I have so much faith, hope, and confidence in his ability. I read more articles about his wife than Obama. But I do. Unfortunately I also believe things will get worse before they do get better.

But! Listening to "In the Waiting" makes me feel better. Every time I listen to it all I can picture is one of my favorite movies, Garden State. Those who have not seen it, go rent it at your local video store (preferable on privately owned).

This is one of my favorite scenes.

The good news of staying up late...I created these little do-jiggies:

They're cute, small....and kinda pointless. I enjoyed making them and enjoy looking at them. They just kind of put a smile on your face.

I hope I can get very inspired while I am in my personal economic drought to make some very cool things!
