Nerding Out: Hobbit Style

So a new Hobbit trailer just came out... and I love it! I'm super excited because The Hobbit is my favorite book and I can't wait to see it come to life!

So Emotional

I don't know why such simple things can make me cry. I never used to tear up as much as I do now. TV episodes or movies that never made me cry before make me cry now. What has happened to my hormones?

I blame my husband. Before we were together I was pretty solid. We met when I was 19 and you would figure that I would have gone through my emotional crazyness by then. It is supposed to be the worst when you're a teenager, right? So why, after we got together, did I soften up? I blame relationship hormones. I'm pretty sure that being in a long term relationship has caused me to change; my hormonal balance is off.

I'm still pretty close to a man emotionally though. I don't want to talk about my feelings and I usually don't want to talk on the phone for long. Tell me what's going on and then let's be done with it. Unless I'm talking to my cousin... then I can talk for an hour no problem. Not sure why that is (love you Stepf!) but I think she's the only person I've talked to over the phone since High School for longer than 15 minutes.

Collecting Freebies

I'm not sure what it is about free stuff that makes people feel the need to have it. Seriously, it's insane. Even if we don't need something, if it's free there is almost a need to have it. I went through the drive-thru of a restaurant (which shall remain nameless) and for only 50 cents more I got more food PLUS a free cup. I didn't need a cup or even really want one, but because I got a cup and more food for only 50 cents I figured "why not." So now I have a cup that I don't know if I will use.

So why do we have this urge to collect what we don't necessarily need?

Christmas Gift Anxiety

I had to laugh the other day when my sister-in-law said she didn't know what to get me for Christmas and that I was difficult to shop for. I answered this honestly...

Hard to shop for? I'm a 27 year old nerd who likes many things... books, movies, Doctor Who (and other awesome shows) and toys. Its like I'm still a kid. I have a toy collection on my desk at work. I'm happy with anything especially if its quirky or weird. I should be the easiest person to shop for.

 For example, I just bought this for myself the other day.
It dispenses candy. Awesome.

I will admit, however, that if you don't understand what is so great about things like that it can be difficult. I usually find it difficult to shop for others. I never really know what other people need or will like. Which is why I tend to wait as long as possible to buy gifts. Around mid December I start getting present buying anxiety. Thinking of that, I'd better look online now for stuff. I don't need to add anxiety to the season. Walking by all of the people ringing bells and wanting my spare change makes me nervous enough as it is. I feel like they judge me every time I hurry by them, even if I just gave some money to the people outside the last store. I can't just throw it out to everyone! Stop judging me! Breathe, just breathe.
UPDATE- My sister-in-law and her husband got me the coolest Christmas gift ever! TARDIS cookie jar!
