So it seems everyone is posting pictures of their Christmas trees online this year...
Well, before you judge my tree, let's paint a little picture.
I'll be Bob Ross... you be, the awestruck PBS Saturday afternoon viewer.
Some people say I'm hyper - I prefer energized.
Others might call me A.D.D.
Maybe it's just that I can think outside the box, and bun, the bag....look squirrel!
I suppose it's true...when I wake up in the morning, my mouth usually opens the same time my eyes do.
That being said, every once in a while I need a little pick me up.
Coffee is ok, in a pinch but it can make my stomach feel ill.
And most energy drinks just have that weird aftertaste.
Most... energy drinks.
I've become rather enamored with an energy drink I tried a few years ago.
One night I was desperate... I had to go out to the clubs.
It sounds awkward just remembering it, and I'm sure my face echoed the sentiment.
You see, normally, when the sun goes down... I go down. As in, asleep.
I am not... a big 'clubber'
Part of my "job" is to keep the dance party going on the finish line at our big races... and I have found one energy drink never lets me down.
It's pumped full of B Vitamins, it doesn't have a weird aftertaste and no weird jittery feelings either.
So... you're probably wondering where I'm going with this....
What do you do when you've vowed not to buy anything new for a year, but you don't really have cool ornaments, and your'e a little impatient
(maybe because you've already made a load of crappy homemade ornaments for the poor souls who are friends with someone who can't buy you a sweet, new, real gift?).
.. you rummage through the recycling.
My recycling happens to have a LOT of shiny Xenergy cans....
I'm hoping since they're the official energy drink of the UFC... it doubles as a security system for any peeping toms. ha
