So, I'm flying to Virginia to be with my family for the anticipated end of the world (according to the Mayans). "Desert Girl, do you really believe in that?" Perhapsee I do, perhapsee I don't, but hey - it is a great excuse to get on the plane a little earlier than usual and hang with the fam (also known as "being annoying and getting on their nerves").
I am rather melancholy about leaving a certain individual behind, Desert Guy (because he literally lives in the desert during camping season). Not a Bedu - definitely hather, but loves the desert. I have been having so much fun lately (Mashallah, hot eyes people) that I kind of don't want to miss the fun here (shut uuuuup - I am too serious!). I met DGy about 6 years ago under strange circumstances (he was getting beaten up by his then-girlfriend, accusing him of cheating.... 'nother story). Amusing, but not. Next time I saw him, he revealed that "most women I meet are just after me for my money." He seemed sincere enough and kind of down because of the realization. I told him, 'I'm not after you for your money. I have my own. I just think you're f-ing HOT.' and then walked away. I guess I made an impression because we kept in touch (although he was still married at the time and I think I might have still been pining over The Man - bad timing.) Times have changed... happy sigh. SweartoGod, if I was independently wealthy (and DGy could put up with me...), I would be living out there in the desert with them for the next few months (they have a jacuzzi in the camp - it isn't exactly like we'd be roughing it).
... But I'm happy about going to Virginia. I hope that my older sister will be up from Texas with her family. She's such a positive person and I try to learn from her. She's Texan and you know how they are: they can make anything sound sweet. She's always giggling and bubbly and an all-around good drinking partner. When the 3 of us sisters get together, it's a lot of fun.
I've been Christmas shopping online this year and thank God Amazon keeps track of my purchases, because I sure as Hell can't.
