Black Friday

So Thurs was Thanksgiving which is probably one of the greatest holidays of the year. I love the food, time with family, not having to work all that good stuff.

This year, right after leaving my parents house Jason and I hustled down to Target to wait in line for some crazy deals. I've never participated in the whole black friday insanity (except for working on black friday, being an employee) and it was definitely something I will never forget. I wish my phone hadn't died because I would have taken pictures of us all bundled up and freezing our toes off! It was so cold that night, and I definitely learned a lesson in preparedness; if we go again next year we will be bringing a tent, heater, extra hot chocolate as many blankets that we can fit in the tent and a lappy to watch a movie on.

Needless to say, since we arrived at 11 pm (store opened at 4 am) we were pretty close to the front of the line and we were able to get all that we came for! yay! This year Target had a 40" tv for under $300! crazy! I thought that people would be slightly civilized but the people behind us in line were ridiculous. They were pushing people's carts out of the way trying to get ahead (mind you the people behind us were only maybe 12 in line, maybe? like i said, we were pretty close to the front). Oh well.
So, we picked up two of the tvs, an awesome fuzzy, really fuzzy, soft blanket (king size for $20! I almost didn't get it, but I don't have a blanket that's larger than a twin size, and now when jason and I snuggle watching a movie we can both fit under the blanket!) I also picked up some computer speakers for 12! it was pretty sweet.

What was not so sweet? going to bed at 5:15 am, waking up 3 hours later for a 10 hour work day, and then staying up the next night (last night, friday) till 1:30ish, and waking up early for another long work day. So basically I'm exhausted and could fall asleep any minute, truly.

I'll be posting pics of the blankie later. I so love it!

I just heard some awful news. Fringe is being moved to Friday nights!! And you of course all know why this is awful, I mean can it last on Friday nights?

This is so sad to me because I'm just barely really getting into the show and I hate it when a series I love is over, whether it be tv shows, movies or books. After it's over and I've reached the end I definitely feel a small hole that it has left in my heart/life.

I really do love the show though, and all the characters, even Joshua Jackson! (which, if you didn't know, was on the awful dawsons creek, and was such a lame-a, but now he's cool - good turn around J.J.). I love Walter, he's so funny, and truly lovable. Seriously, whenever he is sad I could cry right then and there. Then I love Olivia because she's smart, and I think she's so beautiful. If I had to be a blonde I would want to be her. Also, the plot lines are so fascinating, and I always catch myself thinking about the show at some random time. It's got that X-files-y feel to it, but I kind of like it better. My problem with X-files was that it seemed like a lot of times Mulder(sp?) and Scully were chasing after something that, when they finally got the answer, couldn't be proved to anyone but themselves or something. Like, there wasn't a good resolution to the issue of the episode, and it just added to the big question(s). Whereas with Fringe there are some resolutions, they do save people, and all of that, while still adding and building up to something bigger. I just like it, and I hope that Friday doesn't kill it!

Time for Hot C

Well, it's definitely time to be breaking out the Hot C every night (especially when you're radiators aren't on when you'd like them to be). It has been hot c weather for quite some time now but I'm just now starting to realize how much I want some every night and day. I'm also constantly craving steamed eggnog. They have it at starbucks, but it's just milk and eggnog so why not just make it at home instead of spending $3 every time I want some? I tried to make it the other day stove top and while it warmed it up nicely it wasn't all frothy like when you get it from starbucks.

The conclusion I've come to is that I desperately need a cocoa latte machine, or a cocomotion. I found this (Back to Basics® Cocoa Latte™ Hot Drink Maker - Brushed Chrome)
at Bed Bath and Beyond, and I thought about just telling my mom that I wanted it for christmas, or hoping that boyf would pick up on hints but i'm considering just getting one myself. I'm not sure that I want to wait till christmas. And although I can't really afford to be buying things for myself that aren't groceries maybe I can justify it somehow.

I'm Gross

I'm so gross lately. Really. Just about every day when I'm thinking about what I'm going to have for dinner I get this craving for cheeseburgers and fries. It's this weird salty craving that I just can't get rid of. I really try to not give in, but sometimes it just doesn't work. I feel so gross though that all I want are cheeseburgers and fries. Why is this?

By the way, I'm totally not adverse to the occasional burger when you're with friends or the boyf. and are starving and need a quick bite, or if you have a gift card to a place (like carls jr.). I think that's tots fine! But when I'm thinking about making dinner tonight (while I'm at work supposed to be doing work) and all I can think of that sounds good is burgers and fries I think that means I have a problem.

I think what really bothers me is worrying that if I give in then I'll turn into one of those gross people who eat out at McDonald's all the time and has to start wearing sweat pants around and inevitably they've just let it all go and they hardly wash their hair and it has nasty comb-like marks in it from the grease. And THEN when I'm 35 (and people think I'm in my late 40s) I'll have nasty long hair with feathered bangs that I only wash once a week and I've ended up with fast food smelling B.O.

man, am I just terrible or what?

i am the new black

just checked this gem out from the library. i heart tracy morgan so much. and i thought that maybe i just liked his character on 30 rock, but i did some research and it turns out that a lot of the characters plot lines are inspired by his real life. so, like, that diabetes episode, yeah something like that actually happened. and no, someone didn't dress up as a witch and try to scare him into eating veggies but you get the idea.

baby vizsla

Saw this on lol dogs today. this is exactly what little csucsie (choochie) looked like as a puppy. soooo cute. i miss those days so much. I've really been having goggie/puppy withdrawals lately and can't wait till i'm able to have one of my own!
