Happy Thanksgiving! I'm jealous of everyone who gets today (and tomorrow!) off of work, and I'm missing my US family today.

Re: Michael Jackson RIP

The reporting of these things has just gotten weird. When Blue came home from work, he told me that he'd heard Michael Jackson had had a heart attack. We didn't think a whole lot more of it, until when sitting in our backyard I checked my twitter feed on my iPhone - someone had updated he died. I di...

Re: Relay For Life 2009

I just wanted to send a heartfelt thank you to all of you for donating to this year's Relay For Life. The event was a great success - and each donation helped in a big way. The event as a whole absolutely shattered our fundraising goals. Not only did my team have a personal best this year (over $160...

Relay For Life 2009

It's been awhile since I've been on here asking for support, and I hope you don't mind me starting a new thread on this topic once again. I've set my goals higher than ever this year, and I'm looking for your support. I'm aiming to raise $750 before event day - which is a mere 10 days away. Sadly we...

Re: Happy Birthday, Blue Chair

I've already wished him a happy birthday several times in person, on twitter, on facebook, and via email... oh and he got his gift over a week ago (cash to spend at Amoeba in LA), but I may as well say it again: Happy Birthday! :)

Tonight we go for some (hopefully) yummy Mexican food!

Re: New Year's Eve - Plans and Resolutions

I'd like 2009 to be a year of responsibility. I'd like to take better care of myself, my house, and my finances. I'm pretty happy that 2009 has begun with more money in savings than 2008 did (by $50!), but I'm hoping to see it grow quite a bit more this year and ideally see debts vanish, or at least...

Re: All I want for <insert appropriate seasonal holiday here> is

So there is one more gift exchange with Blue's family, but I'd say I did pretty well for myself: - A yogurt maker. Blue and I like making stuff from scratch - and we buy so much yogurt I think we'd make good use out of it. Check! My dad got us a really nice one. Hopefully we can make the first batch...

Other than that, let's see - I've got a few categories: Because I'm domestic: - A yogurt maker.

We've made jam a few times with our breadmaker - so dam...

Very adorable. After having a few beers and being surrounded by a crowd of pro-Obama Canadians in our basement glued to the TV for a few hours, he goes from being all level-headed and tempered in his posts ("I'm a Canadian, so..."), to being a CAPSLOCKED ASSHOLE WHO NEEDS TO MAKE HIS POINT...

Oh, hubby. Getting cocky and overly excited. It's adorable :)

I'm far away from home tonight, in Vegas, and am damn near tears. Shed a few earlier during the two speeches (McCain's was great).

Still waiting for/anxious about Indiana. I want it to go blue!

Re: Random Thoughts

Don't ever convince your boss to hire a friend, no matter how desperate that friend may be for a job.

It's just not a good idea.
