Fangirl Friday-December 2

by Tee

Fangirl Friday is a feature hosted by my pal Evil Eva at Nancy Drew is My Homegirl.  You know what’s great about it? I get to talk about things that make me all giddy. Here are my current obsessions:

1. NanoWriMo is over! Yea. I can stop pretending to still be writing for it since technically I gave up about a week and a half ago. Side note: NanoWriMo, I say this every year but, I really hate you.

2.  Clockwork Prince  Holy mama it’s coming on December 6th. I purposely left this off my Christmas list because there is NO WAY I’m waiting to read it.

3. Partay– This weekend we will be celebrating the birthday of one of our very good friends. Do you know what that means? It means that I get to wear a dress (I should probably go buy one) instead of my jeans AND maybe, if I decide to get really crazy, maybe I’ll have a cocktail. Or two. Look out.

4. Disneyland at Christmastime– I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but I love Disneyland with a crazed intensity. Of course, being a native of So Cal, I loved it as a kid. Then I grew up and got all “Dland rides are lame because they aren’t scary.” Then I had kids and realized again that it truly is the happiest place on Earth. I’m not saying that to be a dweeb. I really, really love it.  If you’re not from here, you may not realize that the park gets all revamped for the holidays. They change The Haunted Mansion to a The Nightmare Before Christmas theme and they change It’s a Small World (they sing Jingle Bells instead) and there’s lights everywhere and there’s a ranch where Santa and his reindeer are. It’s all really cute, but the best part is the Christmas parade, followed by snow. Snow is a big deal here since, you know, we rarely see it and even then you have to trek up to the mountains.  And the snow is made of soap bubbles but whatevs.  We love it.

5. The Princess Present by Meg Cabot– I think it’s time for a re-read of one of the Princess Diaries novellas, The Princess Present. Oh, y’all know what that means. Thazz right, it’s time to talk about Michael Moscovitz Fake Man of My Dreams.  He and his sister, Lilly, visit Mia in Genovia for the holidays and there’s a big party, and of course, Lilly acts like a jerkhead, and Michael is all swoony in his tux.  And there’s kissing. AND presents, hello. I love it.
