Lunch time and the world is passing slow. I am not really planning to do much of anything for the holidays. Gas is expensive and so going and hanging with people is probably out. I am going to be real tight after paying rent anyway....real tight actually. So it looks like a weekend of sitting around the house and watching movies or playing games or reading books. A number of my friends and roommates will be doing the family thing so thats out. I am probaly going to try and get some projects out of the way. All in all it could be worse.
