There's nothing better than the week of Thanksgiving. I think I like the holiday more because it's so close to my birth date. I get to celebrate getting old and then be thankful for getting old. How great is that?

I am very excited about this Thanksgiving. My cousin and his family are going to be at my house this year and I am cooking a turkey for maybe the second time in my entire life. I'm planning on making a turkey recipe that I saw on the food network -- done by Sandra Lee (who quite frankly annoys the heck out of me for no other reason than she's the queen of overdone tables).

I'm also making green-bean casserole, cranberry salad (from a recipe passed down from my grandmother to my mother), mashed potatoes, and ham. I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but my brain is shot. I spent all of yesterday evening cleaning my over-cluttered house. I am completely and utterly exhausted.
Not that rest is anywhere in my near future... as baking, cooking, peeling, cleaning etc. are on the list of things to do tomorrow. Plus I will have to get up early to get the turkey started 4-6 hours to cook/bake something in the oven good lord, I hope I have enough time and do not over sleep.

I'm not stressed. :)


*collapses in a heap*

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

oh joy...

it's finally Wednesday. Woot! I actually remembered and, golly gee, had time to sit and write something. I wonder sometimes why I bother to keep an online journal/blog of any sort. It's not really like there is much that is of interest about me. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job, and overall I'm nothing to be commended. That being said... on to the lists.

There will be no venting today... instead I shall list the things that make me happy.

~happy things~
>this adorable octopus necklace
>the best t-shirt place evah
>online literature such as Discourse of Method by Descartes

~songs that make me smile~

>Død mann tango - Kaizers Orchestra
sha la la laaaa sha la la
>Black and Gold - Sam Sparro
>Cheater Cheater - Joey & Rory
>Run - Amy Macdonald
>The Stoop - Little Jackie

~other things that make me smile~
even though I am terrible at doing any projects
>fingerless gloves
I'm not really sure why
>I love this shirt I am sure the explanation is in order... but I don't have one really.

>Tuesdays & Thursdays at work
every other day is fair and well... but there is something special about Tuesdays and Thursdays.
>hahhahahaha Niiiiiice

~countries I want to visit~
I really want to go back to Moscow. I miss it.
>New Zealand
>Czech Republic & Slovakia

and thus ends my ramblings for today.

once again

it's not Wednesday. I have to be honest I've had a rather busy last couple of days. I mean with the whole day off and a short Wednesday because of Spanish class in the evening... well, I just can't keep up with the blogging. Plus,I do not have anything to say. so. there.

um... yeah. I have just been so busy.

I've had two songs stuck in my brain for the last two days.

If you'd like to hear them it's possible to go on this awesome website.

Dear Chicago - Ryan Adams
Dear Chicago,
You'll never guess.
You know the girl you said I'd meet someday?
Well, I've got something to confess.
She picked me up on Friday.
Asked me if she reminded me of you.
I just laughed and lit a cigarette,
Said "that's impossible to do."
My life's gotten simple since.
And it fluctuates so much.
Happy and sad and back again.
I'm not crying out to much.
Think about you all the time.
It's strange and hard to deal.
Think about you lying there.
And those blankets lie so still.
Nothing breathes here in the cold.
Nothing moves or even smiles.
I've been thinking some of suicide.
But there's bars out here for miles.
Sorry about the every kiss.
Every kiss you wasted (bad / back)
I think the thing you said was true,
I'm going to die alone and sad.

The wind's feeling real these days.
Yeah, baby, it hurt's me some.
Never thought I'd feel so blue.
New York City, you're almost gone.
I think that I've fallen out of love,
I think I've fallen out of love . . . with you.

~~ I think I'm in a very melancholy mood as of late. I'm tired. I even feel alone most of the time and I'm pretty much always with someone. Is it possible that once you've decided not to dream anymore that you start dieing? If so then that is how I feel right now. dead.

Absolute Zero - Jason Mraz

You. You were a friend. You were a friend of mine I let you spend the night
You see how it was my fault. Of course it was mine.
I'm too hard at work. Have you ever heard of anything so absurd ever in your life.
I'm sorry for wasting your time.

Who am I to say this situation isn't great? It's my job to make the most of it
Of course I didn't know that it would happen to me. Not that easy.

Hey what's that you say? You're not blaming me for anything that's great
But I don't break that easy. Does it fade away?
So that's why I'm apologizing now for telling you I thought that we could make it
I just don't get enough to believe that we've both changed.

Who am I to say this situation isn't great? It's my time to make the most of it
How could I ever know that this would happen to me, not that easy, no
All along the fault is up for grabs why don't you have it
Well it's for sale go make your offer, I'll sell it for no less than what I bought it for
Pay no more than absolutely zero.

Well neither one of us deserves the blame because opportunities moved us away
And it's not an easy thing to learn to play a game that's made for two that's you and me
The rules remain a mystery. See it can be easy.

Who am I to say this situation isn't great? It's our time to make the most of it
How could we ever know that this would happen to me, not that easy, no
All along the fault is up for grabs and there you have it
Well it's for sale go make your offer, I'll sell it for no less than what I bought it for
Pay no more than absolutely zero.

Pet Peev

So, based on my love of Bunny I decided for Halloween to make a pet peeve and possibly (if I had actually gone out) dress like pink bunny. NOT PLAYBOY BUNNY! PINK BUNNY. there is a big friggin' difference people... like seriously... geez.

any whoozz I have made a pet peev. He is not perfect, but rather very flawed and he is mine. all mine. My very own pet peev. I wuvs him. :) heh.

I'm sure you are all wondering "What is a pet peev?"

Well, the only way to actually explain a peeve is to have you read bunny.

A peev is for life, not just for christmas

Its name was Alber

Bunny Island read until 848.
