Christmas wishes

I keep thinking about what I want for Christmas. Every year there is one big thing that I want, and then some little stuff. This year, I have yet to decide on a special gift that I want. I just went to Amnesty International's website and went through there online store. I found some really awesome books and other things that I liked. So, I will suggest to anyone who knows about AI or who is involved with activisms to check it out. I think we all could learn something from this organization. I have participated in a great many things that they do, mostly letter writing.
So here is what I found on there that I want: (books)Torture Worldwide: An Affront to Human Dignity, A Map of Hope(womens stories), Crimes of Hate (hate crimes), Abuse of Women in Custody (female prisoners), Sex Love and Homophobia, 2003 Annual Report (the report on 155 countries human rights issues), word magnets, and an AI hooded sweatshirt.
I might get all of my Xmas shopping from Amnesty. LOL. They have some good clearance items. Yea, I am a pathetic internet shopper. It's just so much easier than going to the store. HAHA
Lastnight we went to eat at Bubba O'Malley's on Belsay Road. It wasn't that bad. I wasn't sure what I was expecting from it considering it's more of a sports bar type of place. It was nice, though. We also rented Saved and Stepford Wifes. We watched Saved, it was halarious. Let me tell you, it was amusing to think of people being that fanatical for real. Tonight we will watch the other one when she gets out of work. I have the whole evening to myself, I get out of work at 3pm. So, I get to go grocery shopping and meander around. Maybe I will do some Xmas shopping.
I got some really awesome news at work yesterday and it made me smile. I dont want to say anything to detailed because it might jinks everything. Wish me luck!!
Oh, and I think that I am going to go through the LDIR training. How intense is that?
