My one drawback from this fabulous plan came when I didn't get a calendar like I usually do from my sister. So yesterday I ventured forth into the shopping-crazy world to see what I could get.
I ended up with a calendar of one of my favorite artists, Alfons Mucha. You've seen his work. You can't miss it. It defined Art Nouveau. Check it out:
I wish I could draw like that! Absolutely gorgeous! As an added bonus, the calendar was 50% off. Yay, me!
Other holiday presents that I bought myself:
- new knee and elbow pads for the roller derby
- sportsbras. Lots of them
- a PRISTINE vanity case from the 1960's
- pants from the Gap. On sale for cheep
Hooray for commercialism!
I've also been eating like crazy. Four pounds have been gained just this week. Hooray for gluttony!
TCM has been showing a lot of cool movies the past week or so. My favorite so far is The Man Who Came to Dinner. GENIUS! Hooray for Monty Woolley! Not the funniest clip, but a fun clip nontheless:
