  • The MTA and my cell phone. Both are technology, and I live in NYC. You do the math.
  • music=sanity ^__^
  • It lets me buy all of my presents on ebay so I never have to deal with the crowds at stores and save money at the same time. I also like that I can pay my retail credit cards online and avoid the stores too.
  • --Giving me a chance to rest or take a break from the chaos --allow me to watch events taking place all around the world without having to leave my room
  • hahaha... one thing: psp makes family gatherings and long lines tolerable :P
  • I don't celebrate the holidays, so it isn't an issue for me.
  • They don't...I HIDE!!!!!!! I learned a long time ago holiday's are for making everyone else happy so I take this as my personal holiday and stay away from everyone. Technology only makes me easier to find so I turn everything off, HIDE, read magna, watch anime, and pretend I am still a kid!!!!
  • It doesn't it makes it harder. Crk. Fuck It!!!
  • It allows me to compare shop without having to physically do this, and fight not only the street traffic, but the people traffic in the stores.  It allows me to send gifts to another state without having to stand in line at the post office; oh yes, ladies and gentlemen, the post office will pick up your packages for you!  It also helps me find the hard to find gifts.  My bf is an artist and the items he wants are collectibles and hard to find.
  • Um...it doesn't? Well, maybe a little. Because one get always get Christmas presents online, which is handy. In fact, I found a few last night. And the stuff you get online, more often than not, you can't find anywhere else, sadly, sadly. Work has been LAME lately. I ended up somehow making $54 tonight, but only because of a couple tables. Every once in a while, I get this table of this old fogey white dude who comes in with two young, very attractive, dressed up black girls, like he's their sugar daddy, or something--or, actually, one of their sugar daddies. And they're a really annoying table, except the one NOT sugar daddy girl, because she's generally pretty nice. But daddy and baby are annoying and weird. And he's supposedly a nationally-renowned acupuncturist, but you wouldn't know it by the way he tips. He sucks. And they can't tell you what they want all at once; you have to make about fifty trips. Ugh. But here's a link to something cute. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/27786771/?GT1=43001 And something else: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25576785 And something not so cute: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/27706917/ And something intriguing: http://cosmiclog.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2008/11/18/1679514.aspx And those are my links for the day. And just in case you were wondering--yes, Bruce is VERY cute today.
