Eeeewwwww that ruins Christmas!!!!!!!!

Stupid cat trick, ends badly!!!!

Freaking Jelly!!!!!!



I have to tell you about this freaking Jelly!


My sister, just to be a "bitch"...... My birthday is in March.....but because I couldn't get to her house....because of the high price of gas, and the fact that I had to save every penny I had to drive my son back and forth to school...... I asked her to come to my house for my birthday.


But, Oh No, she just couldn't!!!! You see after going to Paris, and Egypt, and London, she didn't have the gas money to come down to my house!!!!


In other words, if I can't spend the money to come up to HER, She's not going down to see me!!!!

My birthday... MAKE THE FUCKING 30 MINUTE TRIP TO GIVE ME A GIFT!!!! WTF!


So, I didn't get my March birthday present till July!!!!! And part of it was this threesome of Jelly's. Now, I'm allergic to WINE, and she knows it...... so giving me 3 jars of jelly made with WINE..... well that just makes sense, and of course I should LOVE IT!!! (SARCASM INTENDED)


Being the kind of person I am, I don't feel right putting something unused and good, in the garbage...... so I've endeavored to GIVE IT AWAY!!!! No luck, no one wants the crap, and now I'm still stuck with it!!!!!


I have to either chuck it in the garbage (my thrifty side winces at that) or store it somewhere till SOMEONE will take it! Grrrrrrrrrr

All in all, this is someone that just went into her closet, and gave me stuff that others had given to her.... re-gifting what she didn't want......... and that's cool, but THINK about the person before you do that! Don't give them something they can't use!!!!

Well, I guess it doesn't make much difference anyway.... so maybe it's time I bit the bullet and chucked it away. I did keep the chipped spoon rest she gave me, thought it was chipped, it's still pretty. And I did love the Egyptian necklace with my name on it... she does have good taste, sometimes. But the Jelly has to go!!!! GIGGLE

Ellowyne




Thanks to Steph, I found this pretty lady on line!!!! She's the same size as Janu, wears the same clothing, is fully articulated...... but she has painted eyes, and is made of plastic.... not resin like Janu.

All in all, that means she's CHEAP!!!!! I CAN AFFORD HER!!!!! Those resin dolls go for around $400 just to start with, and this pretty lady is less then $100.

But I have to tell you in her words : "NOTES FROM THE COUCH

My therapist, Dr. Bantam, says I suffer from chronic ennui, with just a touch of melancholy – but I guess I’m just too tired to figure it all out. I’m supposed to write down my thoughts and feelings – but really, it’s not that I’m not happy, or even sad - just mostly bored.

I should tell you about my cat, Sybil. I’m not really sure if she has nine lives, but she definitely has nine personalities. Unfortunately my favorite personality is when she’s sleeping...

I guess that’s all I have to say for now. I do have an appointment with Dr. Bantam later today, but I just don’t think I’ll have the energy to go…maybe tomorrow.

(sigh)....

Love, Ellowyne

SEEMS LIKE A PERFECT MATCH FOR ME!!!!
It seems I will have my hands full keeping her even a little happy.....but it should be fum!!!!

gotta find something to do!!!!!




OK, I'm not going to tell you how bad it is to be me, and have nothing to do..... but I will tell you that I've got the measuring tape out.......

and that's NEVER a good thing with me!!!!!


That's how I wind up with all my "little" projects! And take the word "little" with a healthy dose of sarcasm!!!


I spend hours on the web, browsing. And find ALL KINDS of things. Like I found a good idea to spruce up my kitchen cabinets...... "Tatouage!"

Yep. they have a...... well, let that be a surprise for now, when I get money to buy it, and do it, I'll let you know.

But both my bedroom and Christmas closets are done, nice, neat, and clean...... now I'm looking around for something more to do this winter.... hence the measuring tape!

Monday, December 22, 2008

Does the wind EVER stop blowing here at the shore??????? Yep, as soon as summer hits, no winds to be found, but in the winter they blow, and blow, and blow, and blow...... Poor little froggy!!!!

Rain!!!! YUCK




Thanks to the absolutely ENDLESS DAYS OF RAIN, here at the shore. I actually got to some projects in the house.



I mean I feel bad for my friends being snowed on, but this is the rainy weather is something I thought we would be getting in October!!!!!


It's rained more days this December then days that we've had sun!!! SUN???? WHAT'S SUN????



But it did get me to clean out my closet in the main bedroom. Now you can actually walk into my walk in closet!!!! WHAT A CONCEPT!!!!!

Next is the closet in the back bedroom, the Christmas closet. I'm gonna clean that sucker out!!!!! Yippppppie!!!!!!!

Oh, by the way..... this picture was taken with my new camera TRIPOD!!!!!

Party's



I'm sitting here cleaning out my mail on my accounts on the web, and cleaning out the drawers in my desk......

And I've counted 6 party invites!!!!! Now, 3 of them are out of state. Two in PA, and one in MD. I DON'T LIKE DRIVING IN BAD WEATHER!!! So they are out!

And one is from someone I love, but it's in California!!!!! Santa didn't bring me a plane ticket, and I don't have the money to buy one..... though I'm sure If I said yes, he would send me a ticket, but It's too far for one party, so no..... take pic's and send me them. GIGGLE

One is Brenda and Alan. THEIR PARTY ROCKS!!!!! I always go to them.
A. they are sea food freaks like me. (last time he had like 50 lobsters!!!)
B. They are real close, so it's cool to drive. and
C. They know a lot of hot, rich, male friends. giggle.

The last one is from a group of Trekies that I have no fucking clue WHY they would invite me!!!!!! I HATE MOST OF THEM, and those I can stand, I'm not too fond of anyway. So that one's out.

It's nice to be wanted, but move closer, or have your party's at the beginning of the month! To close to Christmas and the weather turns bad.

I may try to attend one in PA, but that's only if the weather is good. The nice thing about that one is that it's a bit AFTER Christmas.... so the traffic won't be bad. Thank the Goddess!!!!

Deck the Halls

Holiday Rules





To have a successful holiday season the following eating rules must be adhered to.

1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the Christmas spirit. In fact, it you see carrots leave immediately. Go next door, where they are serving rum balls.

2. Drink as much eggnog as you can, and quickly. it is rare, You can't find it any other time of the year but now, so drink up. Who cares that is has 10,000 calories in every sip? It's not as if you are going to turn into an eggnog alcoholic or something. It's a treat. Enjoy it. Have one for me. Have two, it is later than you think. It's Christmas!

3. If something comes with gravy, use it. That's the whole point of gravy. Gravy doesn't stand alone, pour it on. Make a volcano out of your mashed potatoes. Fill it with gravy Eat the volcano. Repeat.

4. As for mashed potatoes, always ask if they're made with skim milk or whole milk. If it is skim, pass. Why bother? It's like buying a sports car with an automatic transmission.

5. Do not have a snack before going to a party in an effort to control your eating. The whole point of going to a Christmas party is to eat other people's food for free. Lots of it. Hello?

6. Under no circumstances should you exercise between now and New Years, you can do that in January when you have nothing else to do. This is the time for long naps, which you'll need after circling the buffet table while carrying a 10 pound plate of food and that vat of eggnog.

7. Same for pies. Apple, Pumpkin, Mincemeat. Have a slice of each. Or if you don't like mincemeat, have two apples and one pumpkin. Always have three. When else do you get to have more than one desert? Labor Day?

8. Did some one mention fruitcake? Granted it's loaded with the mandatory celebrity calories, but avoid it at all cost, I mean, have some standards.

9. One final tip, If you don't feel terrible when you leave the party or get up from the table, you haven't been paying attention. Reread the tips, start over, January is just around the corner.

Remember this motto to live buy.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

PS

Don't forget to break out the Champagne New Years Eve.

THERE COMING!



I saw this and couldn't resist. Of course it isn't Merlin, but the look on his face is the same one Merlin gets when the grandkids come! GIGGLE. I'm hoping they come down this weekend or next so we can exchange gifts!

GIFTS!!!!!!


I know he's ugly, but to me he's so ugly he's CUTE!!!!


This adorable cookie jar was from Barb.


So far I'm doing really good this Christmas.... gift wise that is.


Barb also gave me one of those herbal heating pads, but this one is the size of a baby's blanket. Covers's your whole back!!!! Fantastic for those achey days! Plus the cutie cookie jar above, and a wand that puts lotion on your back where you can't reach, nice!


And my Aunt Harriet sent me money, (money is the best gift... then you can get just what you want!!!!) and I went out and got a great warm blanket for my bed (I really needed that! I was getting cold these nights) and I got the big stand up tri-pod for my camera. So I can set up my camera like a professional! Soooooooooo COOL!!!!

I'm a happy camper! GIGGLE

Stewing away





Some thing Barb said a few weeks ago, has been stewing away in my brain. Yes, that's me, it takes me a while to think about something, and then comment on it, but that's what keeps my temper pretty even. giggle

She asked me if Eileen, my sister, had talked to me yet.

I said no, and I really didn't care if she ever did again.

Mainly because I did nothing to piss her off..... but she does stuff to piss me off every time I talk to her!!! Her nasty jibs and jabs that she considers being honest, are hurtful and spiteful, and just plain nasty!

She should learn to guard her jealous mouth, and she might have more friends.

But we were talking about hair, and Barb made a nasty comment about Eileen's long hair..... now I'm growing my hair long now too..... so of course you KNOW she was also making a jab at me!

I like Eileen's hair, long hair rocks!!!! And yes, her's is getting a bit dull. She needs to spice up the color a bit, or color with something that adds highlights, the color is right, but it's dull and drearily. She needs some sparkle!

But mine is getting long too..... why? Because most of my life it was short..... it looked cool short when I was younger, then the kids came along, and short hair was just easier to take care of. But now that I'm older, I'm having fun seeing how long I can grow it!!!

It's totally white now, but I'm happy to say it's the platinum white, not that gray white or yellow color.... so occasionally I use a color rinse to brighten it up and add some red highlights, but all in all, I leave it white. And it's way past my shoulders now, and getting longer by the day.

I love to braid it, or do a high ponytail.

Now Barb's hair is short, short, short, always has been. She's got that "butch" thing going on. She likes it, and I never comment, but if your going to have the Butch cut, you have to up it with makeup and stuff to add the fem touch to yourself, and she doesn't.

Barb is pretty even tempered, but she does have a tendency to snap at people if she's pissed off at others, or herself..... but she's cool if you call her on it. Hay, people are human!

Eileen finds something about you that your proud of, and makes nasty comments about it.... but in a seemingly off the shoulder way..... yeah, right. She's just nasty!!!


I mean when you consider last shore leave, she was nasty to anyone who stopped to talk to me, making them leave with her comments...... instead of joining in the conversation and having some fun. And even by our room, I was having a blast talking to a new friend, and she just sat there and snubbed them! Not nice. I'm a friendly person, open up a little and join in!!!!!

But Barb doesn't make nasty comment often, once in a blue moon, and then she apologises.... she was just being snippy. GIGGLE

But the hair thing bothered me, maybe because it reminded me of how Eileen snipes at me, but it doesn't matter. Like I said "LONG HAIR ROCKS" and I'm going to keep growing it, because I LIKE IT!!!!!

First of the year!



First snowfall of the year!!! I woke up this morning to see it gently falling, and my cat going nuts!!!!! He wanted to catch the flakes, thinking it's a game..... so I opened the front door, and he stepped out..... AND FROZE!!!

Pretty falling white things shouldn't be cold and wet!!!!! GIGGLE

After trying for a few seconds to walk without touching the ground...... he JUMPED back inside and ran to hid under the dinning room table. Looking at me with distain.... as if it was all MY fault!!!!! GIGGLE

It's an hour and a half later, and still falling.


Jamie and the kids were coming up today, I pushed them off because they were all sick, and so am I.... not a good idea to be exposed to sick kids, when I'm sick myself.... and I'm glad I did, because they would have been caught in the snow all the way down here!!!


And Jamie HATES driving, even in good weather, but doing it in the snow would just about kill her!!!!

But it's SUNDAY, I don't have to be anywhere, or drive in it, so I'm totally cool with it.


I'll drink my tea, eat my anchovies in cream cheese on rye toast, and enjoy watching the pretty white stuff!!!!

Visiting






Janu came to visit this weekend with Steph. Isn't she pretty!!!!

Another doll (sigh)





OK this is the new doll I'm drooling over!!!!


Not only is she an elf.... you can't see the ears in this picture, but believe me she has elf ears..... but she's a VAMPIRE!!!!!


Tiny white fangs, again hard to see in this picture....but soooooooo sweet!!!!!


This craving for these dolls is killing me!!!!!! I can't bring myself to spend 400 dollars on a doll, even if I had the money...... BUT I WANT ONE!!!!!!


(stamping my foot, and pouting!!!)

Steph has to STOP SHOWING THEM TO ME!!!!!!

In the case of these dolls, not seeing them is the only way to stop wanting them!!!! GIGGLE
