Like You Care

Thursday, December 30th, 2004

I just got TWO pairs of my favorite jeans AND a t-shirt at the Gap for the price of what ONE of those jeans normally costs! Score!! Now Loupy is gonna be calling me Fashion Geek Barbie.

Feliz Cumpleaños

…a mi chico Diego! Awww! Lil’ cutie is 25 today, which I find hard to believe since he can still play 17 year-olds and get away with it. I guess that just means he’ll have a longer career, then, since he probably won’t start playing adult parts until he’s 35. Anyway, coming up in 2005 […]

Let’s Have A Patrick Swayze Xmas

Monday, December 27th, 2004

You know, BW and I are really getting good at making Xmess painless. Ever since we started celebrating Yule on our own a few years back, “that other holiday” isn’t nearly so miserable. We go up to the hellhol…hometown…get in, get out, all in 24 hours and without any trauma or lingering psychological scars. This […]

Hollywood is Stupid

Friday, December 24th, 2004

Here for no apparent reason, I give you a movie rant. Not long ago, Boy Wonder and I watched The Terminal, a flick I’d kinda-sorta wanted to see for a while, and then I learned that cutie Diego was in it, so I wanted to see it more. It was a decent movie, somewhat funny, […]

Santa Would Fire Legolas

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2004

The ‘Yule With the King’ viewing/Yule party was pretty fun! I don’t know if anybody enjoyed the extra footage, so we basically sat and yakked and MSTied throughout. It was better that way (though I did think the new Mouth of Sauron scene was good. And Christopher Lee was God, as usual, in his restored […]

Happy Yule!

From all of us to all of you!

Well, You Asked

Monday, December 20th, 2004

Lucky for me, nobody reads this blog. The only questions I got from Friday’s post were from Loup. The bad thing is, the questions she asked were hard enough for 10 people! Here they are, along with the answers. “Let me replace 1) with that one … If you could be a fly on the […]

Baked Goods Bitchin’

Just who do I have to kill to get a properly-made scone in this fucking gawdsforsaken country?!? That is all.

Answer Me These Questions Three

Thursday, December 16th, 2004

This is one of those blog chain-letter type thingies that I got from Loup. I want everyone who reads this to ask me 3 questions apiece, no more no less. You may ask me anything. Then to go to your journal or weblog, and copy and paste this allowing others (including myself) to ask you […]

Sucka MCs Should Call Him “Sire”

Tuesday, December 14th, 2004

Y’all down wit da king? Yeah, at long last I got my ROTK:EE in the mail yesterday. That means it’s time for the traditional viewing party.

Success!

The barista chick at Starbucks thought that my Boromug was an Officially Licensed Product. “Where did you get this? When did this mug come out?” she asked. Heh heh heh heh heh. Hail to Gondor!

Gettin’ (Irish) Jiggy With It

Sunday, December 12th, 2004

So, how’s everybody’s weekend so far? Mine is going pretty well, at least yesterday was pretty good. Good Thing #1: Finally, some proper winter weather has arrived. About freakin’ time. Good Thing #2: I have been craving some British-style pub food for a long time, and last night we went out to Piper’s Pub to […]

Another accurate quiz, brought to you by Quizilla: What Literary Classic Are You? George Orwell: Nineteen Eighty-Four. You are the classic warning against the threat of totalitarianism. To you, politics and philosophy are inseparable, authorities suckand the reality might not exist outside our imaginations. Which literature classic are you? brought to you by Quizilla

Have Some Ice Cream, Christian

Thursday, December 9th, 2004

Last night we went out to see The Machinist, a new artsy-fartsy flick starring Christian Bale. It looked like it was gonna be bleak, head-trippy, and Kafkaesque…all things I like in a movie. But before the movie we stopped at Ben & Jerry’s for some frozen goodness. They have a new, temporary seasonal flavor called […]

Trixie Twin Powers, Activate!

Tuesday, December 7th, 2004

BW’s guess was right, they have indeed arrived! *cue ‘Village of the Damned’ music* On Friday we headed out for a walk and spied Frat Boy and his parents hauling toys, gift baskets, and other freebie kinderspullen literally by the cartload into their house. So we talked to him and found out that the little […]

We *Heart* Loupy!

Monday, December 6th, 2004

Today my homegirl LOUP is having major surgery, so I want to wish her well and I want everybody out there to go over to her blog and send her a message or an email, or think good thoughts, or send vibes, or light a candle (but make sure it smells good!!) or whatever you […]

It’s That Time Again…

Saturday, December 4th, 2004

To say Happy Birthday to my dad. My dad doesn’t like a fuss made over his birthday, or care for lots of gifts or cards or parties. So you can leave a greeting if you want, but I think the one thing anyone could do that would make him happiest is if everyone reading this […]

Meet My Office Manager

Friday, December 3rd, 2004

“Gandalf Greyhame! Wisest of counsellors!” Being as how winter is kinda-sorta here, Gandalf has taken to spending every morning with me as I do my work, write my blog, and IM with you people. This is my daily view. Does he do it because he takes a great personal interest in and concern for my […]

Theeey’reeee Heeeeeeeeereee…?

Thursday, December 2nd, 2004

*cue favorite horror film music here* Last night, BW pointed out to me that we hadn’t seen Trixie or Frat Boy for a couple of days. There’s been no signs of life at their house, their new Honda CR-V breeder-mobile has been gone, and all the same lights have been left on inside the house. […]
