Alive & Kicking

Thursday, December 27th, 2007

Just a quick note to say that we’re still here.  We are heading out to DC tomorrow morning for a quickie overnight trip.  We really want to catch the Edward Hopper exhibit at the Nat’l Gallery. Back Saturday night, will try to post something after our return.

Yuletidings

Friday, December 21st, 2007

Hail, Day! Hail, Day’s sons! hail to Night and her daughter! With loving eyes look you upon us, and victory give to those standing here! Hail to the gods! Hail the goddesses, Hail the all-giving Earth! Fair speech and wit to famed ones here grant, and healing hands, while we live. –Norse Voluspa Things will […]

Symphony of Destruction

Wednesday, December 19th, 2007

Last night I got to see a free sneak preview screening of Sweeny Todd, and now I find myself in the impossible position of having to try to review it. How does one review a musical?  The nuanced, realistic acting? No.  The plot? Not really.  I guess all you can say whether you enjoyed watching […]

What the heck was that?

Monday, December 17th, 2007

Had the weirdest weekend….there were no errands to run and no studying to be done.  Just sat around, watched DVDs, evaded the snow, cooked brunch, went out to dinner.  It was like *scratches head*…uhmm…what’s that thing called again? Re…reflex?..no…uh…re-somethin… Oh!  Relaxation!! Yeah!  I almost forgot. We were supposed to see I Am Legend in IMAX […]

Drive-By Hotting: For a Good Cause

Friday, December 14th, 2007

(P.S. SO happy that PETA finally got a genuinely hot women for this cause, instead of that fugly two-bit hooker Pam Anderson! )

It’s the Final Countdown!

BW’s last final for the semester is this afternoon! After that, no more classes till January! W000000T!

Peepermints

Tuesday, December 11th, 2007

You know I have a sick fascination with Peeps, and am usually enthused about all the new Peeps permutations that come down the Peep pike.  That’s why I was pretty excited to see new Peppermint Peeps…they’re star-shaped with red sprinkles and in a red wrapper for Xmess. I’m really not the biggest fan of peppermint; […]

Turn Your Crank to Frank

Monday, December 10th, 2007

Time once again to hoist a glass to the Chairman on his birthday!  We loves ya, Frankie! (And now I don’t have to worry about the Genovese coming over to bash in my kneecaps for another whole year!)

Drive-By Hotting

Friday, December 7th, 2007

Maybe call this the “Where did you come from?” edition. Actor Josh Brolin (yes, son of James Brolin) is 39 years old but has been flying completely under the radar, not having any real success or appearing in anything noteworthy until this year. THIS year, he hit the jackpot. He had a strong supporting role […]

Oh Thin Man Tree, Oh Thin Man Tree

Thursday, December 6th, 2007

How potent are your cocktails… Oh such a rare and swanky sight, Clad in your tux, and tie so white! A few pictures below of some of this year’s Yule decor. Some time ago, we got the idea to hang a picture of William Powell and Myrna Loy on our tree. Because they are our […]

Welcome

Wednesday, December 5th, 2007

…to the first real (i.e. accumulating) snow of the year!  May it bode well for more to come. Apart from enjoying the snow, all’s quiet.  I finished up my Yule shopping for BW yesterday (praise to E!)  I think the only person we have left on our list is BW’s mother, who is always kind […]

2 Much 2 Do

Monday, December 3rd, 2007

Another overly-busy weekend, but at least half of it was fun stuff. Saturday morning we met up with Tim the Enchanter and Donna for tree-shopping.  Stood around and froze on the tree lot for a long time while our indecisive selves mused over which ones to pick.  BW and I did eventually get our tree […]
