The day after Christmas (think some refer to it as Boxing Day) has always been depressing. That was until last year. Last December, my cousin Jennifer and I began our very own tradition of participating in day-after-Christmas retail madness alongside the rest of America's bored-and-pathetic. Delirious due to lack of sleep (girls like to gab in bed), we took advantange of the early-bird specials at Southcoast Plaza. We had to wake up at 5am in order to pay to save, but boy was it worth it! Unfortunately, this year, Jennifer absent-mindedly scheduled a residency interview with the good folks at Cedar Sinai at 7:30am on the day after Christmas. Fortunately, the hospital is located directly across the street from the Beverly Center (a huge mall for those unfamiliar with Los Angeles), sandwiched between Robertson Boulevard and Third Street (streets filled with boutiques oft featured in the eyecandy publications, USWeekly and People). Unwilling to break our nouveau tradition, we decided it'd be best if I were to tag along with her in the morning. Seeing that a final vacation day spent in the suburbs of LA would have been a bit of a buzz-kill, I did as Jen suggested and tagged along. I kept busy while she interviewed by working on my final business school application at a Coffeebean situated across from the mall; and with the help of two grandes-sized Moroccan Mint tea lattes, I was surprisingly productive. The rest of the afternoon would be spent roaming down Third Street with Jen. Whipping out our credit cards with much glee and little thought, we continued to relish in "tradition." Wishing you a safe trip back to Duke, Jen.

For giving and receiving gifts!!!Best gift I've ever given/received is still Beans. He brings such warmth to my life! (Literally. He is, at the moment, sleeping with his head on my lap. Even his head emits heat! Lovely, as my loft has been awfully chilly this past week.) P.S. I recently got a haircut. This explains my character's new hair-do!

Anyone who tells me that they don't want a present or presents for Christmas is a LIAR! Who doesn't want a present? Pammy (my best friend) and I LIIIIIIIVE for presents. There's no such thing as a bad present either. So long that there's wrapping paper involved, yay!

Sike! Still working on the b-school application. It's due on the 11th, and I'm in pain! Luckily I've got Beans to keep me company while self-reflecting. See photo above. It's Beans! My cousin Jen took him out for glamour shots with Santa. Hehe. Beans didn't like Santa very much and he conveyed his feelings towards Santa to the camera. (Will post his "who-are-you-what-do-you-want-from-me" photos as Christmas nears.) But look how angelic he is sporting a borrowed holiday-print bandanna. He's a supermodel! Note: Unlike most supermodels, Beans works for food. The intense gaze? Directed at a cookie :)
