My Day Was Arbitrary

Today was Matching for Arbitrary Day on Reddit Gifts Secret Santa Exchanges.  Arbitrary Day is like the regular Secret Santa, but mid-year.  I am really excited at who I got this time, as, she was super easy to buy for!  She is 19, studying to become a teacher, likes Hello Kitty and has 5 cats.  Plus, she and her boyfriend are going to be getting married and moving, soon.  I found some really cool stuff from Hot Topic that I think she will love!  My info was also pulled, already!  Over 8,000 people signed up for this one… probably because it is the last year… and most seem really excited about following through!

I am feeling a bit better, today, although I am still a little hoarse and at one point, my ear rang…No, I didn’t answer it! I pretty much took it easy and didn’t clean, either.

We had like 2 minutes of rain, here; which sounded and smelled nice, but really didn’t help our water shortage.

Weather Drop

Mother Nature is off her meds again!  A cold wind hit last night and the weather dropped like 10+ degree’s.  I didn’t even go anywhere, today.  Just watched the wind, turned on the heater and drank lots of coffee.  Sudden weather changes can be very annoying for Migraine sufferers like me. 

Had a conversations with my BFF.   She is excited for Arbitrary Day next month on Reddit Secret Santa.  It’s a lot like the big exchange in November except less people participate so they put more effort…well, most do… into the gift giving.  Since my BFF is completely obsessed, she is really hoping to get stuff  Brendan Fraser related.  Which reminds me, I wrote the other day to his PR Department to see if I can get her an autographed picture of him to add with a Christmas thing I am putting together for her.  It’s never to early to start planning.

Sleeping Life Away

Not really. I could just as well have titled it. ‘Trying To Be A Cat’. I slept from 5:30 or 6 last night, woke up around 2 then back to sleep, reawoke at 5:30,with a Migraine..took an Imatrex, then back to sleep until 9:30 a.m.

Got some Mobile Home Insurance today, since mine has lapsed and its best to have it…just in case.

Also, my Book Santa on Reddit came through in a big way and got me the entire ‘Chronicles Of Narnia’ set from my Wishlist. They have other exchanges coming up throughout the year which also sound fun. I highly recomend joining

Figured I would share a laugh since grammar is so important.

Lots Of Reading

It’s been a quiet day with lots of reading. I’ve finished reading Daniel, so I can lead the study tomorrow; plus, am in the process of reading Ann Rule..You Belong To Me;  and like, 5 other stories.

I joined the Book Exchange-Secret Santa on Reddit, and it was a bit difficult, again. The girl I got likes Fantasy Fiction and books with LGBT characters and Crystals..none of which I know anything about. Luckily, she likes to go to the Library, so I got creative. I got her:

$15.00 Gift Card to Barnes &Noble
Fantasy Fiction book that sounded interesting.
A Tote Bag with a Library theme
And a Library themed Facemask.

She is in California, so I am sure they still have to wear them.

Thanks for the comments/compliments on my haircut.  It’s fun and bouncy.  I am waiting to color it until it gets warmer, here.

Yesterday

Yesterday was quiet and a Migraine Day. Later on, I read a book until one in the morning. Today is more lazy, I think. I need to go to the laundromat which I keep putting off; so, instead I just don’t get dressed.

The new list of exchanges are listed on Reddit Secret Santa. They have different exchanges throughout the year. Same rules, but the exchanges are themed. I have signed up for Books and Bookmarks. The Bookmarks one is no minimum, but to receive $20 worth of books would be totally cool!

Santa Delivered

Last year was my first year doing Reddit Secret Santa and I was a bit disappointed because the gift I received was completely random and nothing I was into or wanted. It was like the person just looked at the website for Uncommon Goods and picked the first $20. item.

Fast forward to this year:

Once again, I gave my Santa quite a few options of my interests. They sent me a message that something was coming and apologized for not finding it in Purple. After waiting impatiently for two days, it arrived!

Sushi Cookbook & Sushi Kit

So excited to learn how to make Sushi!

And so thankful to the stranger who followed the Secret Santa rules and sent a thoughtful gift.

Will definitely be taking part and encouraging others to take part in the Reddit Secret Santa Exchange for years to come!

*Reddit has other exchanges throughout the year, but, this is the main event.

Obsessed

I know I haven’t blogged every day minus Sunday like I should but right now I am seriously Obsessed over Reddit Secret Santa and I hate to drive you all crazy.

My guy got the first part of his gift the other day and I received a message last night that mine is in the mail! They actually tried this time and read my form even apologizing for whatever it is not being Purple.

I am living vicariously through the Gallery as people post the gifts received. It’s amazing what strangers are sending other strangers!

Plus, I have two friends involved this time so we’ve been on the phone for hours comparing and helping each other with our Matches and sharing gifts received. My BFF received expensive Chocolate for her, gluten-free and healthy dog treats for her dog, and a shirt is on the way! We did some research and the guy who had her is in Michigan.

Anyway, will try to post more often and discuss other topics.

Please pass if I go on and on. I won’t cry…to much.

Let’s Talk About…

Birthdays, since mine was yesterday. I think as we get older, we get more introspective and it isn’t as much about us. I mean, it’s great when you are spoiled and your Birthday is acknowledged, but I was more excited for my Secret Santa Match on Reddit.

The man I got is a bit difficult to buy for so I really have to get creative. He is the DIY type. He doesn’t have many likes except for Poker. What’s amazing is gifts are already being received and posted when matching was yesterday! It’s just been so fun to see or share about the people my friends got as well and what they are getting them!

I did receive an Amazon Gift Card from my brother for my Birthday so had fun ordering things for myself, yesterday. I also spent the day with C. and J. since C. had to take J. to the hospital. We watched Achmed sing a song about 2020 while waiting in the car.
