On December 1, 1955 Rosa Parks was arrested in Montgomery, Alabama, for refusing to give up her seat on a public bus to a white man.
Let's see. What did I do today? I got up early. I fed the cat and guinea pigs for the last time. I went to Giant and to Eckerd. Then I went to my mom's and put up her Christmas tree and decorations. She made turkey sandwiches for lunch. That was good. Then I came home and chatted on the computer. I actually talked with a few guys who sounded interesting. Not sure if anything will come of it but it was nice conversation none the less. I finished my laundry. I watched “To Kill A Mockingbird” on TCM. That is one great movie. The best part is when Scout gives her little speech on the steps of the jail when her father is watching the man in jail. It turns the crowd away when they realize how innocent she is. It's a great scene. If you haven't watched that movie, you should. Gregory Peck was brilliant. I highly recommend this movie. Well, the four day weekend comes to an end today. It's back to work tomorrow. But I can look forward to the next break from work. In three weeks I'll have two weeks off. Yeah! And now, just for your information, Mark Twain was born today in 1835. Sometime in the future I should go to see his home in Hartford Connecticut. I saw it on the CBS Morning Show this morning. It looked interesting.
What a boring day. I got up early and went and fed Michael's cat and his neighbor's guinea pigs. Then I stopped off and picked up my shirts and lottery tickets. After that I came home. I chatted on the computer for what seemed like hours. I watched a lot of TV (all boring). I've done a lot of thinking today but mostly it was just wasting time. If there was a way to record my thoughts without actually having to write them down, life would be so much easier. I'm sure sometime in the future such a device will be created. For the time being I will have to remember what I was thinking about and simple write it down. Most of my thoughts revolve around my most recent X. I think it started when my brother called on my cell phone. I have his ringer set to the “Sex and the City” theme. I also had the X's number set to the same ringer. When I heard that go off, I thought he was calling. Of course it wasn't him. I've asked not to speak to him for the time being so I know it wouldn't be him. After talking to my brother and solving his simple problem, I changed his ringer to the normal phone call ringer. Since hearing that ringer though, I've been thinking too much about the X. Not a good thing to do when you are trying to get over someone. I know as time goes on I will think of him less and less. It always goes that way. When I have a breakup it takes awhile to stop thinking about them and wondering what they are thinking or doing. It does pass. It just takes time. Enough about THAT. Tomorrow is Sunday. I've got things to do in the morning but in the afternoon I'm sure I'll have another boring day. Nature is beautiful!
Today I put up my Christmas tree. Is there anything wrong with putting up your tree the day after Thanksgiving? I had the day off and had plenty of time to do it so I thought I would get one more thing done by doing it today. A good friend of mine commented on how early it was to put up my Christmas tree. I told him I wanted to do it while I felt in the mood. If you know me at all, you know I'll take it down the day after Christmas. What sucks about having a tree in the first place is that there won't be any presents under it. Years ago my family decided to only get gifts for the grand children. Well, I don't have any children (and won't) so there won't be any presents under my tree. And since I was recently let go by my most recent boyfriend, I won't be getting any presents from him either. I'll have to tell you about him sometime. He's got some problems that he's dealing with and doesn't feel as if being in a relationship is something he can deal with at this time. Besides the fact that he's 1300 miles away doesn't help. He says that's what is breaking us up but I have my doubts. In any case, I will respect his decision and move on. Anyway, I put up my tree today and I think it looks pretty good. I will enjoy the warm feelings I get when looking at the tree all lit up while listening to Christmas music.
Fed the cat. Fed the guinea pigs. Cleaned the litter box. What are friends for. Now I'm ready for dinner with some family. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
