I keep waiting for new info on the Gulf of Aden Vortex. But with the Wikileaks founder in custody I don't think he will have the time or interest in confirming/debunking this one. Darn! I'm needing some 90's style escapism here. Christmas is looming like a big old black cloud on the horizon. All the neighbors have gone full on Griswolds on me. I cant sleep at night for all the twinkly lights beaming good cheer through the cracks in the blinds of the bedroom window. Anybody know where I can get some classic WWII black out blinds? The nappy homemade dog/cat hair filled cookies and candy should begin coming through the door anytime now. Crap!... Guess I'll have to fight back and make some cookies of my own to hand out.. In the true spirit of the holiday I'm gonna make sugar cookies with purposely overdone edges and waaaaaaay to much frosting.....maybe I will add a little chicken broth to them..... Hmmmmm there's an idea...I'll make them gross on purpose and stand there with a childlike expectant look on my face while they eat one. Or maybe I will just make cookies so I don't have to hear it for the next 11 months. I AM looking forward to putting the giant holly wreath on the door. I figure if I make the front door all poke-y and dangerous then people will be too afraid to knock.
Yes... I am CRANKY today! I tried for about the first 10 minutes to fight it and then decided to embrace it. So..... BAH! HUMBUG!!!!!! and in the immoral words of my childhood hero 'The Grinch (the real one, not lame-ass Jim Carey one).... "I must stop christmas from coming"
