I'm beginning to rethink this whole holiday job thing. At first we were all pumped: yea! we'll stay at home and rake in the holiday dough! Well Chris can't really get a job with his measly little Christmas break, and even though I'm so thankful I have a job, I'm so exhausted from my semester that it's taking every ounce of mental determination to move my aching and tired body down to Banana Republic. And now I'm getting sick on top of it. blah.
On the positive side, we got Harry Potter 5 and began reading it last night. I really like the beginning episodes with the Dursleys have more meat than like a slapstick pre-show show. What I don't like about Rowling's writing style is how she write in all caps when people's voices are raised. Is that really necessary? Can't she deliver the force of the words through prose instead of typeset? It also makes it rather difficult to read-aloud, because it's almost impossible to avoid the urge to shout when reading all-caps, and then you get hoarse.
Well, gotta go drink my tea to fortify my soul for another stint at Banana.
