Haiku almost done Friday

I'm kinda brain dead.
Been working on stupid school
but am nearly done.

It's Christmas weekend!
May you have safe travels and
good food and presents.

Just to be clear, the
reason for the season is
delicious cookies.

Christmas Windows

This is really cool, you guys.

If you live here and haven't seen the various Christmas window displays, as I can't imagine you have, or if you don't live here and wish you could see the various Christmas window displays, check out this link:

Christmas Windows in NYC

Step 1.

I have a new niece!! And her name is Coodence, too!!! Well, not really, but sort of. I'll post a picture just as soon as I get it!!!

Last night I dreamt I was being held hostage in a school. I might need a dream reader to analyze that one, what do you think it means?

Everyone I know watched this yesterday.:

1. Cut a hole in a box.
2. Put your junk in that box.
3. Make her open the box.



You can't watch this hilarious video on YouTube anymore, but you can watch it on NBC.
If you are the only person in America who hasn't seen this yet - warning! It's pretty crude!!

Strange

I think the coffee guy is mad at me. I mean, I'm sure he's not mad at me, in particular, because what could I possibly have done to him, but he definitely doesn't greet me with HELLO DESI! anymore. Hmmm...

Good thing I'm going away soon. Once the coffee guy is mad at you, you've been around for a little too long.

Life has done and gone haywire.

Hope yours is fantastic.

*update. The coffee guy IS mad at me. Vacation, please!

So, I made myself an elf.

Tis the season!

Yesterday, Babe made Toffee Bars for my co-workers. Cuz he loves me. I would have made them, but being that I had a cold, I think thats too weird. Here, I stayed home from work to make you these infected bars.

Would you like to make some? If so, here! Try this:

Toffee bars

1 cup Butter (Shhhhh, don't tell!)
1 cup Brown sugar
1 Egg
1 tablespoon Vanilla
2 cup Flour
½ teaspoon Salt
5 Hershey's bars
Chopped up Walnuts
Cream butter; add sugar; cream until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, flour and salt. Mix well. Spread in 10 x 15-inch pan (greased and floured). Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and place broken up Hershey's bars on top. When bars are melted, spread. Sprinkle with nuts. Cut into bars.

YUM.

SicknTired

I'm a little sickie. Sucks. Stayed home today so I don't infect my coworkers or get any worse. Nothing brings out the worst in me more than stupid people and stupid situations. I was so dutiful this year with purchasing gifts very early on so that I wouldn't have to pay exorbitant shipping charges and just for general merriment - I was excited to get certain gifts and looking forward to sending them on their way. Well, wouldn't you know it, that hasn't panned out. My stupid order from the stupid KodakGallery was returned to sender and I've spent a stupid hour on the stupid phone with stupid Kodak only to find out that they have to send me a new set of stupid presents and that I'll receive them in 10 days. Furious? Yes I am. Sickntired? Yes, yes I am. In other news, I'm almost done with Christmas cards and those are going well and are really fun.

Amazing Race

Amazing Race - this time the model, former drug addicts won. Nice work, boys. Next time, maybe some women will step up to the task?

Fortune Cookie Philosophy

  • You are one of the people who "goes places in life"
    • Question: With the "quotes" is my fortune cookie mocking me? Is it like, You are one of the people who goes places in life, wink wink?
Happy Monday, Kids.

  • Work + school = tired cod.
  • Christmas trees are Christmas trees no matter what you call them.
  • Did I mention I'm kind of tired?
  • There are only 18 days until Christmas. That means all your plans to do stuff early this year and null and void.
  • Its so quiet in my office right now. That, my friends, is a gift from the Baby JC. Shhhhhhh.
  • I've got to meet with my professor today to convince him that what I want to turn in is in fact what he wants me to turn in and not at all a cop-out.

    • Baby Jesus Haystacks

      Make haystacks to represent baby Jesus lying in the hay in the manger.

      ½ cup peanut butter,
      4 cups chow mein noodles,
      mini marshmallows.

      Melt choc chips and peanut butter together for 1 min in microwave, stir and microwave for additional 1 ½ min until melted. Add chow mein noodles and stir with 2 spoons/forks as tossing a salad.

      Drop onto waxed paper.

Why?



Why try to explode the whale? Seriously? Don't watch it if exploding carcasses of whales bothers you. And if it does, you're not alone.

The Post about...Not Paris!

So, I think I milked the Paris trip for about as many blog postings as a I could. Babe's nickname used to be Milk, because one time I mispelled his real name (which isn't Babe, by the way). The other day, Scooter, Babe and I drank a beer called Mother's Milk. Oh Scooter. I did take this picture in paris for Scooter, they were all over the place. Scooters, that is.

Would you look at that, I snuck in another Paris picture.

Work is going well but is what you might call "super hard." School is putting me near, but not yet at, the end of my rope. Christmas parties this weekend - and I'm so excited!! I'm nearly fasting in anticipation of the black dress.

Go Bears - we won on Saturday, of course! Then I watched Predator. What a nail-biter, man. Dug it.

The Post about Paris, Part III

Neat, huh? I like it, too. Means New York Avenue for those of you who don't speak French.
The inside of the Pantheon was full of this crazy modern art exhibit.
From below.
Going into the Crypt of the Pantheon where all the peeps are buried.
Little Car!
Our hotel key - neat, huh?
The ladies of the Moulin Rouge!
The greatest thing you'll ever learn is to love and be loved in return.

This is really hell.

The week was so long!
Jet lagged, some, and work and school -

TV sounds like fun
