Those of you who know me might argue that I've had a heart shaped scab for quite some time now, but this one is not located in the cavity of my chest, but on my ring finger! Hilarious!
So, as the title suggests, I'm home for the holidays. More specifically, at my parent's home. Here's what's been happening so far:
There are a boat load of birds in the backyard, because my parents put out bird feed a lot.
We went grocery shopping. This was not purchased.
My mom and I went to bingo. I won 25 buckaroos! Whoo!
Next up: Shopping for my dad, making a gingerbread house, making shortbread cookies, thinking about Judah Friedlander for a bit, followed by laughing my ass off, probably followed by a nap.
Also! Remember that donkey from a few posts back? I believe this is his website with commercial. He's anti-drunk driving. Unlike drunk drivers. Although, I think when I saw him, he was only doing pick up shots.
So Webkinz kind of scams you because when you get a toy and activate the account it only lasts for one year. So you have to buy another toy to keep all your fun times going. But, I have a super awesome discount card for Lawton's so Mr. Chomps was pretty cheap. And here he is!
This is his exclusive King of the Jungle throne. Here's his jungle:
Right now he's Christmasing it up.
But he's also Hanukkahing it up:
All of which is just for fun, because he's an Atheist. And my backyard has turned into a winter wonderland again. There are two seasons in Webkinz: summer and winter.
And what of Rizzo, you may ask? What is he up to? Being dressed as a bee.
Aw, they're the best of friends:
This makes the likelihood of my becoming a crazy cat lady seem really not all that bad.
For some reason a group of people decided to hula hoop in front of the library. This is the best Churchy has looked in a while. Usually it's like "Hey, why are you looking so mad and leaning forward like that?" and "Did you know there's bird shit on your head?" I think this brings a level of dignity to Mr. Churchill that may have been missing before.
Remember the Great Ladybug Caper of Spring 2006? Well, I know that some more are hiding out in my patio door frame this season, but it seems that some have worked their way inside. I've seen one or two flit around, then disappear. I thought: "They either worked their way back into the door frame, or died in the halogen lamp." It was number two.
And they got super bleached out! There were actually seven or eight in there but the others were just charred. These two have paled out. Yarg.
St. Matthew's United Church, November 17, 2007.
Here's a video of performance of "Many Lives 49 MP". Sorry there's a big head in the video, although it's not that the dude's head is so big, just unfortunately placed for this shot and I didn't want to hold my camera any higher and obstruct the view for others. This is one of my favourite Final Fantasy songs so I was jazzed to hear it. In concert, his music can be very overwhelming, in a good way, so this video doesn't really accurately represent just how amazing this performance was. My friend D and I almost cried during this song, so that should give you some idea of how great it was. But watching him build up a song is pretty fascinating. Enjoy!
So, it's getting to that time of year when I give the SPCA ten big buckaroonies. I guess that means it's time to send me pre-emptive junk in the mail.
I'm all "Sigh" because this was the only mail I got today. It's kind of bulky, because this was inside:
What is it, you may ask?
A new grocery bag! At least, that's likely what it will end up carrying. That, or abandoned puppies.
Aww. You know what else is a four-legged word? Scam. Just like how the "Canadian SPCA" is really just the Montreal SPCA hogging and then wasting all your well intentioned ten dollars. Well this year my ten clams are going to a local SPCA. Because I am sick of cleaning out the tank.
Here's some more stuff to look at!
This is what I painted on my balcony door this year:
Mixing icing for pumpkin shaped shortbread cookies.
Icing which turned out to be very pastel. Note some pumpkins have moustaches!
Did you know Rizzo is celebrating Halloween as well? He is! He's dressed up as a lion! And sitting next to the gates of hell!
He also splashed out on a new room with a spooky theme!
Up next: Probably pumpkin pictures. And alliteration.
So nothing has really been happening lately, and therefore I've had nothing to post. So, I took some pictures from around my apartment to help get you hyped for Halloween.
Here's the dollar store hat I've been wearing all week (in my apartment, not outside) and will continue to wear for the next 11 - 30 days.
Whee! Halloween!!! It's the most wonderful time of the year (contrary to popular belief and written songs)! Although, I went to a local candy and toy store yesterday and they already had the Halloween stuff stuck in the back of the store (although NOT on sale) and the Christmas stuff was taking prominence. This has happened in many stores already. Note to stores: It is disrespectful to Halloween to push it aside for Christmas. Just bust it all out on November 1, mkay? Jerks.
More Halloween junk to come later!
