Busy Bee Sue

Warning: this may be a slightly boring/less interesting post than normal, just a couple of life updates and random musings.
  • Last week, my job took me to Williamsburg, Virginia. When I tell others about my trip, I always hear, "Ohhh, Williamsburg. I love Williamsburg or I've always wanted to go there." While I do think it's a nice place, I don't understand the fascination. It feels a bit like an adult Disneyland. Because we always go to this event around Christmas, I always feel like I've been dropped into one of those petite Christmas village scenes you see in Hallmark stores. I suppose it's pretty in a historic kind of way, but I feel weird seeing people walk around in colonial garb, saying "Welcome to Ye Olde Tavern," especially when you can see their Honda Accord parked two blocks away.   
  • I'm hosting my first Christmas soiree/Dirty Santa/Tacky Christmas sweater party. I felt that the addition of themes boosted the fun factor. I'm super super stoked. I feel like this lady.I almost pee my pants watching this video.
  • The annual Holiday art show at my art teacher's house is here! It's Friday December 10. I'll be posting some pics of my submitted paintings! Wish me luck on sales.
