As I've said before here, I believe I am one of the only people who thoroughly enjoy the bitterness of this season. I pulled out one of my favorite heavy coats for this 20 degree day, which has the most memories behind it, and started off this Monday with warm coffee and sorting through my re-organizing of my apartment. My uncle, who is an avid skull/taxidermy collector, is having me store his collection while he moves to a different state for awhile. My project until school starts again will be to display these around my apartment, which means a lot of rearranging.
My boyfriend, who is a lover of pawn shops, showed me Mission Pawn this afternoon. While he browsed acoustic guitars, I swooned over long fur coats and Dior rings. Later in the evening, I walked through the holiday-lit Country Club Plaza and had a wonderful dinner at Houston's. I am currently ending my night with red velvet cheesecake, wine at a friend's house while my router is broken, and awaiting the last final day of 2013.
