Oh Christmas summary…

leave a comment »

Oh Christmas, I’m glad you are over.

Oh Mom and Dad, thank you for the camera.

Oh Kevin, thank you for the Dr. Martens.

Oh aunt, I think your opinion of Seattle is a little off considering you don’t live in the same county… I have no sympathy for people living on steep hills… I am also one of them. I got rides to work. I have blisters on my palms from digging out my driveway and car. I don’t have chains for my car. And I admit I have no one to blame but myself. Most times, you are a bit much. And yes, we feed our dog.

Oh new running shoes, I can’t wait to use you!

Oh mom, you really need to learn to cook pork better.

Oh Napa, I can’t wait to visit you.

Oh snow. I’m glad you are melting

Oh 2008, I’m glad you are over next week!

And finally, oh Weight Watchers… man I’ve fucked about for the past 2 months. I’m done with the excuses.

Christmas music, I secretly love you!

leave a comment »

I am so tempted to flood my iPod with Christmas music. A total waste of money, I know. I’m hoping Starbucks will have some freebie Christmas music soon, doubtful though.

At one point in my life I hated Christmas music. Retail will do that to you. But then last year, because of my store’s location, we didn’t play Christmas music. My work is in a very Jewish neighborhood. I sort of missed Christmas music for the first time in my life.

Now that we are moving into a house, I’m all stoked for the season! I can go into my office and geek out over all of my magazines and reciepes and dream about all the awesome things I could do but won’t.

The one thing I love about iPods are I can have all the craptastic music I want on it and no one else really has to listen to it but me.  Yes me, I could listen to anything and you’d not notice… I’d just have to live with sore ears for a few hours after geeking out over things from NPR and The New Yorker.

Update Dump

leave a comment »

This week:
Made a calorimetry from Knitty. Um, the patter is great but to big and after looking at a few forums there seems to plenty of discrepancies with the one shown in the picture, the one the chick is wearing and the pattern.. I mean I have a huge head and plenty of hair and I had to modify it and ad an extra button. But, I will make another one binding on less stitches to start with. I think this might be something I could use for running and walking in the upcoming cold season.

I found my long lost Pumpkin Ale!!! PCC @ Seward Park doesn’t have it, but PCC in Issaquah sure does! Sweet! Anyway, it is made by Buffalo Bill’s Brewery in Hayward, CA.

I’m all registered to do the Pumpkin Push 5k! My mom and I are doing are second 5k this month because I think it is a great idea and we are crazies. Um, I don’t think we’ll be dressing up though.

Martha Stewart’s new Holiday is now out in stores. I love buying her holiday magazines to get great ideas, maybe this year I’ll actually use some of them. Can I just let anyone know I’m usually pretty retarded about Christmas. Some years not as much as others, but indeed I love it. And this year I’ll have a house to decorate! I can have a tree and stuffs.

And on a super really happy notes:
I am no longer in the 210s. I have been really slow at losing weight these past few months but, I’ve lost something like 27 pounds since April and I’m happy with it. I could do better but I could do worse.

We go on vacation in 21 days. Yes, I’m counting. There is snow on the top of Whistler and Blackcomb! (yeah, not a lot but so what.) Yea bitches! I like snow. Yes, we are 30 and going on a fairly cheap vacation with my folks… and I am quite happy to do so.

We’ll be out of our craptastic apartment in a month and a half. Thank god. Any kitchen will be better than the one we currently have. According to the maintenance people there is nothing wrong with our fridge and dishwasher, they are just old. Oh, and how many times can you people try to level our stove and not get it right? Fuck.
