That magical scooter thing seems really appealing. The idea of not having to find parking at school, or along Grand, or downtown... On the other hand although they say it works great on snow (I sorta believe them about regular snow but Minnesota snow?) I'm dubious about anything that's open air in a state where it gets below zero half the year. But what a great alternative for the energy-conscious who are always complaining about cars. And old people- the balance thing looks very cool. Imagine cruising the mall of america.

I cannot believe it's december already. We were talking about getting a tree the other night and I was having real difficulty visualizing decorating for christmas already, but its less than 25 days away. Surreal. Most of our shopping is done at least. We sat down and wrote out a list on saturday. I can't help but notice that all 4 of the 'impossible to buy for' people on it are guys. Guys should like more things. Oh there's also Benno's christmas-name-swap person his aunt Carol. (who he had last year by the way) Now he's done the gift certificate thing already, two years in a row would be tacky, so he has to get her a real gift and he doesn't know her very well. !Exasperating! I remember being younger and feeling apalled that adults complained about how stressful christmas was. One year my mom didn't want to bother with a tree and I was so disgusted I went out and bought one and decorated it myself. I am so much more sympathetic now. I also have finals coming up. (All of you who are done with school take a moment and be glad.) And I have to complete a piece of original research on human subjects in the next 2 weeks. I hate the institutional review board. I hate school. I think I might have to take a year off before grad school just to thaw my brain.
