I Have No Freaking Idea

Where this week went to. It seems like I got to work, came home, did a few things, and BANG, it was time for bed again.

I last posted on Monday; Tuesday was much better, the gym was open and I got in, did my workout, and had a good, solid day at work. Tuesday night was busy doing SOMETHING, but I cannot now remember what that could have been. I don't think I even watched NCIS live, but I honestly can't remember. Wednesday we had Barb's mom over for dinner, so I made Turken noodle soup (turkey and chicken stock & meat mixed, 'cause I had a little of both left).

Thursday they had a hot dog cookout for us at work ("Employee Appreciation Non-Denominational Winter Celebration"), then Barb's company holiday party at Dave & Buster's later that night, so two free meals! No gift exchange at work this year (too many people now), and Barb took home her own White Elephant present since no one else selected it and everything she had selected was stolen from her and she's too nice to steal from someone else.

Friday was busy at work, and when I got home we went out and got this:



Saturday we got it inside and set up, watching to see how Churro would handle it. He was fine, so in the evening when everyone came over, we baked yams and potatoes with chicken thighs, then decorated while watching Charlie Brown Christmas, How the Grinch, and Wish for Wings That Work, and now it looks like this:



Also started the holiday baking, made two batches of fudge and Barb made up the dough for some cookies, which were finished this morning, along with another batch of fudge; I've made some pistachio cookies which are really delicate, so I have to see if they can be wrapped tightly enough for mailing.

And then spent the afternoon watching Investigation: Discovery, which is a very addictive channel, and saw an ad for a new episode of "Stalker" coming up tomorrow, where an artist named "Colleen" is being stalked -- they showed a page of her art, and it's Colleen Doran. Looked like a page from the first issue of "Distant Soil." I'll have to watch it. Like, wow, I met her! (Stalker, not. :D )

Had frozen pizza for dinner. Not bad, but not as good as the thin-crust stuff they usually have (bought at CostCo).

Now watching the most recent Pysch. Yet another show where they got the main characters together and didn't lose anything. There is no Moonlighting curse, Castle writers.

Love your tree! And I hate those Santa grab bags where people can steal from other people. Hate. Barb is just too nice.

I've had fun at those things, but yeah, they can be annoying when something you really liked is taken. (Although 90% of the gifts were some kind of wine, none of which really interested Barb in the first place...)

Your tree looks lovely. We put ours up today too. I should take pictures.

Is that a stained glass window I see behind the tree to the right? It looks very cool.

Yep, Barb's Aunt Elizabeth made it!

Colleen has a stalker (I've met her too and have like three different versions of a Distant Soil)

I was SO glad when Psych put the main characters together. (and I maintain that is not why Eureka got canceled) I get tired of the will they won't they?

that is one big tree. It came out nice

I have the first run, but I don't think I followed her through all the re-writes. Amazingly beautiful art.

Me, too. The will-they-won't-they is annoying as hell more of the time than not, and it's getting to be that way on Castle.

It's not as tall as we could have gotten, but nice and full!

i did follow thru the rewrites but honestly it was much like Machiavelli Moon retreading the first 5 chapters and never getting beyond it

no argument it annoys me too

it is

If the pistachio cookies are too fragile to ship, I volunteer to help eat them. ;-P

Chuck is another good example of a show that managed not only to get the main characters together, but have them grow emotionally. It can be done! I have the same feeling about Castle--either get them together, or have them decide they should just be friends.

I'm not worried about them not getting EATEN... :D

Yeah. I had another example in my head, too, but can't think of what it was.

What about Farscape? John and Aeryn Sun.

Awesome tree!

I used the Ferris Wheel you gave me as musical accompaniment while I was working on the part of the tree I decorated myself.

I have been trying desperately to come up with a present that would come close to that ferris wheel for you... :)

LOVE the tree! SO pretty!

Also. I second your last statement. Castle writers should indeed listen up! :)

Thanks! Of course, it seems to now be leaning alarmingly, probably due to a CERTAIN CAT using it as a fort to hide in and dragging things off of it... (twenty-five years and ten different cats, and we've never had this problem before...)
