the one where i show some pictures and then admit a quirk

as we speak, benjamin is sitting in the middle of my floor, playing mario.
he's under the illusion that i'm working on my last (!) paper of the semester, but obviously i am not.
obviously blogging is way better.
and as long as he hears the keys tip tip tappin away, i won't get scolded.
that'll come later tonight or tomorrow when he reads this.

i'm sorry i've neglected you guys for so long.
finals week is a pain in my bootay.
lucky for us all, i have a dandy little iphone that takes fabulous pictures for me.
here is an update, in picture form.
plus some words, cause we all know i can't keep my mouth shut.
[also, my instagram/twitter buds may have seen some of these already. whoops.
follow me and you'll get real time wildchild action. such an incentive, right? #bribesthatdontwork ]

there's been lots of Words with Friends (i'm addicted. let's play), some creepin on the ground like a little squirrel by my roommate, lots of papers, and a perfect christmas gift found for a catlady friend.
friday night i went home to get the christmas tree with the fam. ma made dinner, and we hung out, and then we finally made it to the tree farm and picked out a tree within the first minute of being there. i don't understand. that never happens. also, i'm not sure what that reindeer is doing to santa up there.

benny had drill this weekend, so i went up there for date night on saturday. that was the last beard pic for a few days. RIP. there's the pretty patriotic christmas tree and an outfit shot to send my sister, and then i may or may not have worn the same shirt again the next day...
...when we went back to my house to decorate said tree. everyone struggled figuring out the lights while ben and i just sat and watched. we're so kind. also, there's my mother who every time i tell her to smile for a picture, she decides to wave. what  a cutie. then there's my brother and his girlfriend, and my sister and her camera shy boyfriend.
our fat dog, agape, just hanging out, a decorated tree with some models, and a pretty, lit up final product, made even more beautiful on instagram.
and last but not leastie, a final that involved christmas partying at our awesome professor's house, taking the forklift for a ride at church, doing some "research" for my friend chelsea, who just got engaged (!), and a plate sized chocolate chip panacake. 
and yes, i said panacake.
that's how i say it. it sounds more correct to me that way.
 everyone makes fun of me, so don't you start too.
[and as i've mentioned earlier, ben hates pictures.
 he's making that face on purpose, just to ruin it. dang kid.]

so there ya have it. 
it's been a really really good week.
i'm off to actually do my paper now.
