Well I made it home in one piece. For a moment there I thought I was going to see the Big Guy in the sky. I had a very rough and turbulent ride home. Wind and rain appeared to be the problem, but I'm just lucky that my flight didn't get cancelled. It's very funny to watch people at the airport. My first encounter was this older fat woman on the rental car bus. She had her luggage in the isle and when we made our next stop, the bus driver told her to stow it in the bin, to which she snidely replied, "That's fine." Then when we reached the first stop, she wouldn't move her feet out of the isle. So as I was leaving I whispered, "Next time move your fucking feet."

There was no line for the airline counter nor security, however, Mr. Pimp Daddy took forever to get rid of all his bling-bling before he could walk through the screener. I'm not sure if it was all the stuff he had or how slow he was moving that irritated me. As I waited for him to grab all his stuff, my stuff came through, so I just shoved the bin forward, knocking his, and grabbed my backpack. If he said anything, I would have said, "Hey, I'm not the one who packs like a girl." I mean, what's he gonna do? He looks like a thug. I look like an Asian tourist. Security's got my back. I still can't believe all the crap people bring and wear, knowing that they have to take most of it off before proceeding through. And then, they either roll their eyes at the screener or whine and complain. I put everything in my backpack and the only thing I'm requested to do is take off my shoes.

On the plane, I usually don't mind a little turbulence because it feels like a rollercoaster ride. But the take off was very rough, and it seemed like a while before we reached altitude. Fear could be felt when the pilot said, "We had a rough ride coming up from San Diego, and it will be a little bumpy on the way down. Unfortunately, there will be no beverage service, and this will be the only announcement until we begin our descent." Then the flight attendant said, "Please remain seated with your seat belt fastened." He stayed seated as well. We descended fast and before we touched down, the plane was flying just above the runway. After we touched down, it seemed like we were still going too fast, but it was raining and I don't think the pilot could have braked any harder or we might have skid. At baggage claim, I could see how hard the wind was blowing, so it's no wonder why we had a rough descent and landing.

I spent the better part of yesterday doing laundry and catching up with mail.

It's after Xmas and I'm at the mall with my niece. people seem friendly, but then again it is early in the day. I'm not sure how cranky everyone will be later on. I'll be in Santa Cruz today, which will be fun except it might rain. However, it will be fun to check out all the changes that have happened. I didn't get to see a few friends on this trip out, maybe next time. Right now, I'm in the Apple store using their fast computers. It's cheaper than an internet cafe and nobody really bothers you. Will write more later.

Two more shopping days left. But what is the true meaning of Christmas? Can this meaning be bought, boxed, and wrapped? There were many shoppers out yesterday that were very cranky. Two words: SHOP EARLY! or better yet, shop online and stay at home because nobody wants to hear your complaining. Parking was relatively easy.

Took a weed whacker to my hair. Lorri, if you're reading this, I went the layered messed up look and I have some bangs. It's strange having short hair, well, not really short, shaggy? Think, David Spade meets Bruce Lee meets Jon Bon Jovi. I am going to brave the shopping waters once again today. It should be interesting. I can only make this little pathetic pony tail...LOL!

We've seen 2 different Santas so far, but my niece refuses to get a picture taken with them. We watched White Chicks again. As stupid as this movie may seem to some, it is funny to watch, especially since they make fun of stupid white rich girls. I'm not sure what holiday movie I'm going to see this weekend. I really want to see House of Flying Daggars, but no one in my family, at least from what I can tell, would appreciate it's style and beauty.

There's three more shopping days left. I'm in San Jose and it's cold, especially at night, and a little warm during the day. Although there are so many strange shoppers out right now. Is it too much to say "excuse me" when you bump into someone? San Jose has the sterotypical Asian I can blend right in if I'm driving stupidly. A new found favorite is King Eggroll. This place makes some of the best Chinese food in east San Jose and it's always crowded. The first time I went in there I thought I was on a crowded street in San Francisco's Chinatown. I will be braving the shopping waters tomorrow at one of the busiest shopping malls in San Jose. I hope I'll be able to embarrass my niece because a lot of her little friends will be there. I worked out for the first time while on vacation because I've been feeling rather fat. However, after my two and a half hour workout, I bought King Eggroll for dinner. I'll work it off tomorrow. I have a dentist appointment tomorrow. My old hygienist will be taking a chain saw to my plaque build-up. Call me "Bleeding Gums Murphy" tomorrow.

Forgot to add this one:
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (December 14). Your strong will creates success and happiness this year. You're able to knock down the barrier erected between you and what you want. Surround yourself with mentors and friends, especially wise ones, as you enter the new year.

And this one doesn't come out until Wednesday:
In 2005, I hope you seek out more demanding and rewarding alliances. I'd love you to align yourself with a network that spreads your highest values with maximum intensity. My heart will also sing with joy if you use better tools to express your generous urges and try more daring strategies to promote justice. To encourage these developments, consider getting yourself these holiday gifts: a device that enhances your ability to communicate, a pep talk from the most practical idealist you know, and a talisman that symbolizes a promise you make to your future self.

Happy Birthday: Don't let confusion or uncertainty hold you back this year. Don't think that everyone has a better idea or method than you. Take on a can-do attitude and you will be able to move ahead. -- Birthday Baby: You are a hard worker and will never mind rolling up your shirtsleeves and working alongside others. You have vision and will use your creative imagination in whatever you pursue.

If you have a talent for words, either written or spoken, you will get a chance to do something with it this year. You are as gifted as the next person, and more so than most, so write that book or compose that song or do something that allows you to express your ideas. Here's the clincher: it may even make you some extra money.

Start again with a clean slate. You can and you must for, if you hang on to the past, you will miss the wonderful opportunity that lies before you. Irrelevant issues are distracting you from an important matter. How are they managing to do this? By disguising themselves as vital factors! None of us would ever become confused or deluded if we lived in a world where everything was accurately and appropriately labelled at all times! See through a silly facade now. Trust what you feel, not what you think you ought to feel.
