yesterday we went to my cousin’s wife’s parents’ house for soup and snacks. logan and caleb are so cute! they were wearing matching (but diff. colored) sweaters that also matched matt’s (their dad). we had to leave before the brandy alexander, but the chili was sure good and so were the snacks and cookies.

upon return home, i immediately ate more cheese ball, some pickles & dried fruit, not because i was hungry but because…well…it was there. and free. and yummy. and i was feeling a little depressed (as i always do this time of year) so i decided to stuff my face. are you happy?

…you rapscallion! how naughty! none of your business sir!

so i just got home from my annual christmas get together with my lady friends from high school. maria, nicole, katie, and tiffany (and brian) are all doing ok – everyone basically has no idea what they are doing right now, etc, but no one is sick or in a terribly desperate situation, so that’s good. mostly we all just realize that somehow we can all pick up again even though we haven’t seen each other for a year…and how many people can you say that about?

what is the difference between ketchup and catsup? besides, i mean, the fact that i happen to think that ‘ketchup’ is the correct spelling, and ‘catsup’ just looks weird and sort of reminds me of cat puke. is one the british spelling or something?

anyone?

hello?

…HELLO???

addendum: not true, but funny and had me going for awhile until the cornchoppy story. what a tease.

check out typeflake*, an egreeting card composer that adds the bonus of font-fun. hooray!

cool paper models

AUGH! whenever i copy into this thing that’s supposed to predict your gender it predicts the author…ME…is male!!

i think soon (read: w/in next month) i will repost my first website, the ever popular Men & Women of Collegiate Film, which is linked to on the Studio22 links page, but doesn’t exist as such since my NU account no longer exists. i’m sure you’re all drooling in anticipation for the hot pics of your favorite rtvf cuties, circa 2000. wipe your mouth, kids, it’s coming back soon.

update: look here.

whoa! look at all the stuff google can do! i mean really do! i knew it was glorious (in an odd way), but not this glorious.

these are great, you should really take a look.

but i don’t understand what’s going on in this one. i can’t just drive around and enjoy the scenery or something if i want to like, get out of the house or something? i don’t get it.

addendum: a permission slip?!?

hey, i want a cookie bouquet too!

well, the trivial pursuit tournament was awesome – but we didn’t win…or place. it was HARD! tv themes that no one at our table had ever heard before, bizarro sports questions, airport abbreviations?? we did have a pretty high score though, and it was a lot of fun. i’ll definately be back to do it again.

besides that, i went to the dentist, the eye doctor, the orthodontist (twice!), decorated the christmas tree, finished the gingerbread bird house, put together the gingerbread house, and ate a lot of really good food. mm. the train ride was good too – i’ll probably take it back down for christmas, too.

tomorrow i get on the train to go home for the second visit out of 3 within 6 weeks. yay! plus – an added bonus: trivial pursuit tournament! (as if getting to ride the train weren’t exciting enough)

also, oddly, a copy of jane magazine got delivered to the office, and inside was, oddly, a zoloft ad. but you know what that means!! zoloft bubble!!

i feel awful. can feel my pulse in my brain. eyes exploding. might pass out. argh

so the other morning at 6am the electrics (memphis belle? anyone? anyone?) in our ceiling fan shorted out, scaring the crap out of kate, who was sleeping on the couch, with it’s loudness and burning smell-ness, etc. she left for the gym, so when i got up i didn’t know what was going on – i was just like, hm. this light doesn’t appear to be working. maybe it’s the breaker! so i go to the breaker box and start to flip the ‘off’ one and….HORRIBLE LOUD GRINDING NOISE FLICKERING ORANGE LIGHT BURNING SMELL OH SWEET JESUS NO

needless to say, building maintentance was called in. and we got a BRAND NEW nice dark wood & gold fan! woo hoo!

now if we can just get that pilot light fixed…and get our name in the directory at the front door…hm…
