Tonight I had Heidi over (she brought Winnie too) and I played Matisyahu's Happy Hanukkah and we danced to that. Then we lit the menorah while playing the prayers on my computer (b/c I'm not Jewish and don't know how to read or speak Hebrew), then I read the prayers in English. After that we made latkes and watched The Holiday.
Put up my Christmas tree today. This is an ornament I bought this year, all my other ornaments are old. It's the first new ornament for my first tree in my new apartment. Other than loving Disney it has significance because my first dog was named Gus after the mouse.
While working on my papers I ate pizza rolls for almost every meal b/c they were quick and easy and wouldn't take much time from my work. This meal was special though because I found 2 taquitos in the freezer too! :)
I spent about 2 weeks straight working on research papers for the end of the semester. Pickles would bark at me a lot while I was working and I thought she wanted my attention to play with her, but whenever I would give in and take a break for her, she really just wanted to curl up in my lap!
