Fa La La… Whatever

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2003 • No Comments on Fa La La… Whatever

Highlights of the past week, in no particular order:

—Thanksgiving dinner turned out fabulous, thanks to my brand new stove.  I heart my Maytag appliances.
—I finally found an apple crumb pie recipe that is incredible.  Oh.  My.  God.  Incredible.


kind of incredible.
—I ate my weight in turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing.  Oh, and pie.  Yummy cinnamony apple pie.
—Christmas shopping is underway.  Finally.  Thankfully.
—The Highly Selective Book Club With Only Two Members(TM) chose a book for December.
—Bruch at the Jefferson Hotel is a decadent experience best reserved for a once-a-year event.
—I made pizza, Steve. 
—I lost about four inches of my hair.  If found, please do


—I found the most amazing hand cream.
NaNoWriMo finished without me.  Sad, sad.  Maybe next year.
—I braved the crowd on Black Friday and lived to tell about it.  I did not brave the crowd at 6 a.m., however.  I am not that insane.
—Christmas lights were hung from the roof with care.
—I now own a very cool train set that will soon be beneath my Christmas tree (when I get it, hopefully tomorrow). 
—Finding the perfect Nativity scene, however, remains an elusive goal.
—Sheri came and went and I want her back.  Sad me.
—I realized my to-do list for the month of December will require all of December and the first half of January to complete.

It’s been a nice little break from reality, but I guess it’s time to get back to work.  Somehow, I will survive December.  I suspect chocolate will be involved in my survival.  Lots o’ chocolate.  Donations welcome.

I’m Thankful Tofurkey Isn’t on the Menu

Wednesday, November 26th, 2003 • No Comments on I’m Thankful Tofurkey Isn’t on the Menu

We have this little tradition at my house.  On Thanksgiving, while we’re gorging on turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce from a can, we go around the table and say what we’re thankful for.  Despite a few rough spots, I have much to be thankful for this year.  Most of all, I am incredibly thankful (and very lucky) that the people closest to me seem to love me as much as I love them.  Awwww….

I am thankful we only have one more year of George Bush as president.  Please, please, please.

I’m also thankful for the luxuries, the necessities, the wild nights, the cute guys (not to mention the cute girls), an incredible trip and my work.

Now, what are


thankful for?
