Miscellaneous Blog Entry

First of all — let me say, in regards to my most recent post, that my sister had her baby on Sunday and merely seeing pictures of mini-Anna-Laura on FB practically makes me want my own.  My friend Cathy and I talked about kids last week, and she said what I basically knew – that it’s not normally a logical, metered decision to have a child.  And I said as much in my rant from last week, too, but the way I phrased it sounded much more bitter than the way Cathy did.

Anyway.  So other stuff that’s been going on includes getting my Christmas tree a couple of days ago (obligatory picture…..)

christmas tree

Stephen came over and helped me put it up (we’re doing his tree tonight), and we drank White Russians while watching the Big Lebowski after getting it set up and decorated.  OH – and he found this recipe for baked brie which was AMMMAAAAZING.


Try it.  It was phenomenal.

Also I need to buckle down and get to working on all your Christmas presents, for crying outloud!!  I DID finally mail Liesl’s on Monday, and I hope it gets there before the 25th.  If not, oh well.  Late Christmas presents can be fun, too.  I’m 89% finished with Anna Laura & Marshall & Mary’s gift (how odd to include another person in that!) but then I need to start on the rest, heh.  I’ve been obviously very organized this year…..guh.  And last night, instead of being productive at all, I watched American Horror Story (recommend the 3rd season so far – features Kathy Bates who has been one of my favorites ever since Misery) and went to bed early.  Er, got in bed early.  Heh.  Hey, even if it wasn’t a productive evening, I sure the hell enjoyed it.

I guess that’s all I have to say at the moment.  So.
