I am cooking a turkey dinner today for Ayla and 4 of her friends prior to their New Years Eve festivities...I have just burned the shit out of my finger and it is sure to be a blistered gross mess by the end of the affair.
My turkey is half cooked....potatoes/gravy are done....will heat later...im making the stuffing shortly as well....I like to do what I can ahead of time b/c I am a stress case and I cant stand every thing being done at once and something going cold doing the fucking gravy....
there is even PIE and whipped cream for dessert....this is my attempt at being Betty Crocker for a day.
Tonight I will just watch a movie...and putter....or sleep....ha!
830 PM - mmm slave all day and dinner eaten in 10 mins.
Gotta say that was the best dinner ive ever made and im no longer scared to cook a turkey dinner......Ayla had 2 friends over instead of 4 so theres lotsa leftovers for us...SWEET!

so i get these cool things from aunty pam: CLICK HERE
i neglected to read the packaging fully so as I was using them for the 1st time im looking at them trying to figure out how the magnetic part of it works...im examining it as it is in use....and i cant see how a magnet has anything to do with the mechanics of the mill....so im staring at it for a long while...using it...NOT GETTING IT....i figure maybe its something like the spring action bunny ear squeezers??? No idea really.... Then im talking on the phone to Tracey, stupidly mentioned the mystery of the magnetic salt n pepper mill and she laughssssssss.....and tells me im over thinking the shit out of it....and that its magnetic bc there are magnets on the side so they can be mounted on any metal surface.
My odd xmas discontent was stifled by my urge to rearrange every room in the house....I gave Ayla my bed headboard and by the time we fixed up her room with her new desk/PC the bug had me and i started tearing apart the living room, the kitchen and my bedroom all at once..NOT RECOMMENDED!!!!!! cuz half way u get tired of it and dont wanna finish but u have to cuz u cant get from one room to another bc all the boxes and shit are everywhere!
I can not believe the Scorpions do a version of Ave Maria....my gawd.
Today Ayla is on her way to Vancouver for Boxing Day consumerism (some poor dad got roped into driving a bunch of girl over for a full day of shopping! arg!) ...I am meeting Donna and maybe Arika too for a movie at noon downtown....Benjamin Button here I come. Then dinner at T & A's...

It is the Friday b4xmas so this is my managers last day before she's on vacation for a month…I can not describe to you the blissful vibrations zipping through this unit currently over the prospect of a month long spell of bosslessness….it will make next week tolerable…and the rest of January.
You will all be happy to know thescaratch on my face is healing nicely but the one in my mouth is not…I am thinking gargling with gasoline may be in order. Mmmmmmm tastey. Ayla & I were gunna watch LARS & THE REAL GIRL last night but we got in a fight b4 hand and she skulked off to her room. OMFG
You can all thank Kelly the Fireman for bringing this to my attention.
Can u imagine?!?!?! I want 4 copies to give away as gifts this year…and then ill never eat at their house againhaha
Mygawd…that cracks me up….
"Honey! Can you come here…I am baking and I need more semen!!!!!"

instantly blood starts flowing and i waddle to the bathroom mirror wondering how stupid this is going to look and sound when i try to explain it to ppl...its not all that deep on my face but the scratch in my mouth seems to be the worst.
Now don't u think for one moment i was not instantly considering the GERM/COOTIE factor of this event...that's ALL ive been thinking about actually...i basically had a litter box in my mouth...and ppl wonder why im single...?
My upper lip is just a little swollen (u cant really notice the scratch coming down from my nose) but the scratch in my mouth is a lot more swollen and irritated...
So there is my xmas tragedy....not so bad...just stupid. The cat hid for 4 hrs afterwards....which is funny to me...lol
Its friggin snowing...I bought gloves though so im all good. I went to find a jacket today with xmas $ but...nothing was calling out to me so ill stick with the layering technique.
GONZO MAGAZINE is out finally.... check me out on page 30/31... CLICK HERE
Sometimes i read what is in the magazines (my own stuff) and as I read im thinking "THAT FUCKER REWROTE THIS!!!!" and i go check my submitted copy and I actually wrote it. ha ha ha Sometimes I use words and phrases that sounds smarter than me haha
Xmas Eve we will be popping over to where some friends are housesitting for some food and visiting...I think that will be my xmas visiting done all in one sitting.
A movie xmas day possibly (maybe I can convince Ayla to actually come with me to one???)
Still debating the xmas dinner thing....I will buy the crap and just cook it whenever we feel like it.
<--- hahahaha Kaitlin, Connie's wee toddler grrl...ready 4 xmas!!!!!

one thick sweater
one fleece jacket
2 pairs of socks
like i need to make myself look larger....but thankfully reason prevails and layers win over my aversion to looking rounder and larger...i look like a fucking giant blob of black wearing blue jeans.
i cant let myself get cold like i was yesterday...if there's no heat at work im turning around and coming home.
must buy mittens......asap
good bye cruel world.....

The we went home and watched the Big Lewbowski which was funny as hell...definitely a classic!
Sunday they took off to Washington and I hit the craft fair circuit with Donna & Cynthia cuz im cool like that....saw Arika's booth and her fabulous wares...then proceeded to sleep the rest of the afternoon until about 530 pm...
By the way...IGNORANCE IS BLISS...even if u cant in good conscience remain ignorant.

My name is Jennifer Reznor...has a nice ring to it doesn't it? Yes...yes it does. Okay, so he didn't marry me last night...did any one really think he would go through with it as planned....?
Great show though...my 1st time seeing NIN and while I have heard for years their live shows are kick ass now I can say with undeniable certainty that it is so!
Our seats were not too terrible at all aside from a few cables impeding my camera-whoring. We could see well and the stage show was pretty trippy. Tara did not care for the *screen* that would periodically come between her and the band but I liked it...the lighting and visual/technical goodies were pretty cool. NOTHING LIKE TOOL AT ALL but cool in its own right.
The opening band from the UK, "BUG"...omfg...liked the music a lot but the rasta
singer/rapper/screaming bitch was grating and completely fucking annoying. We even had to watch her air hump and show off her ass crack. PASSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!
More pics on Flickr HERE
I woke up to the sound of the cat yanking the whole friggin xmas twig over.....that gawd damn animal is really testing me these days...
I really really find myself annoyed with its stupid cat behaviour more and more.
I think its the power struggle...the cat knows to stay off all counters and tables yet it will jump up on the counter, sproviding u are a safe distance away, while looking right at you....waiting for you to chase it off...like a game...over and over and over....ive tried NOT taking the bait either and ignoring it...itll just stay sitting there...it doesnt tire of the game like I do.
