The coffee table is almost complete. Throughout this process, I have learned three very important and crucial life-lessons.

In other news, we have Michael's company Christmas party tonight at 6. I found an awesome dress for it that looks really good, so I'm excited about that. However, I've been a pretty awkward penguin recently, so I'm hoping that I don't trip on my heels and faceplant into the cheese tray or something. Weirder things have happened.
Oh...I have. Hopefully tonight won't give me another thing to add to my queue.
