I can't believe Christmas is Saturday. December has passed faster than ever this year. I have one more day of work before the holidays and I am flying to Tallahassee tomorrow night. So far packing for the trip has only consisted of throwing a few Christmas presents in my (extremely ugly) suitcase. I guess I'll need some clothes too. I need to do laundry before I leave or I won't have any clean clothes to take with me. That'll have to be done tomorrow after work because Dan and I are exchanging gifts tonight. I love giving presents.

This is an enormous tin of those little shortbread cookies just outside my cubicle. I've eaten three already and it's hard to resist the urge to go get more. But my mom told me she is making a chocolate cake for Christmas so I had better save my dessert allocation for something delicious rather than ordinary cookies. My mom makes the best chocolate cake in the world.

ďThus, indirect thanks are due to British author J. K. Rowling (nope, donít know her personally), whose wild success with Harry Potter books has convinced American publishers that perhaps their authors could manage to sell longer books too.Ē

I have now pre-ordered Half-Blood Prince. And the waiting begins.

On July 16, 2005 I will be reading the new Harry Potter book! Now if only Amazon would start the pre-ordering process. I won't rest easy until I know I have reserved a copy of Half-Blood Prince for myself. Until then I had better get to work.

The release date of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be announced within the next 24 hours. This means we should be able to expect the book sometime this summer. There are no words to describe how excited I am!

My second step aerobics class was much easier than the first and it helped me remember why I love going to the gym.

Yesterday I went to my first aerobics class in more than two years. It wasnít nearly as bad as I thought it would be, but I still suffered. My arms and legs, which felt like jelly last night after the class, are now sore and getting worse as the day progresses. The step aerobics class at the Boeing fitness center in Seal Beach has the same format as when I first attended in June 2000. This being the case I thought the choreography would come back to me, but I was wrong. I shuffled around for a good bit of the class trying to remember how to do the steps. I looked like a beginner. But since its December the gym was almost empty so very few people watched me humiliate myself. Iím planning to go to the same class tomorrow so maybe Iíll do better the second time around.

An hour later things aren't looking much better for Ged. Or Sparrowhawk. Or whatever the filmmakers are calling him right now. I'm going to read a book and try to forget what a disappointment this movie is.

"Legend of Earthsea" just started on the Sci-Fi Channel and I'm already fed up with it. This can't be good.

Earlier today I was worried about something. After awhile I looked to the sky and said, "I'm counting on you to take care of this" and decided to stop worrying. And everything turned out just the way I hoped it would. Perfectly. I need no more proof of God's existance that what I've seen in the past few years. It's very comforting.

One of these days Iíll sit down and put into words all of the things Iíve been thinking about in the past week or so. Even before Thanksgiving I had several topics to elaborate on, but I have yet to write about those. Maybe Iíll have some time this weekend. Hereís hoping.
