It's Christmas Bitches - Diary 9
Santa Claus is coming to town!!!
Not sure why I'm so excited, but I love Christmas
I love the feeling of Christmas. I actually want to hug everyone but I refrain. I smile when I hear Christmas music and love watching the kids go nuts at the mall to see Santa. The Korean lady that does A. nails gave me this awesome cream as a gift. She said, because I like you, and gave me this Tangerine/Lemongrass cream that smells good enough to eat. I actually want to lick me. I know she probably said "I like you" to 50 other women, I just loved hearing it even if it's from a lady that I see since my daughter was 3.
Want to do a blog called Year in Review, and then I think on how much I just want 2009 to end and get a fresh start in 2010. I'll be 41 whoot whoot. I liked 40 and celebrating 40 with my friends was incredible. My brothers Patron contribution pretty much made the last 2 hours a blur but I'm sure it was a great blur. My son is walking around singing "Grandma got run over by a reindeer". I tell him that he should not sing that but then I laugh. That kid is just too funny. The older he gets the funnier and amazing he becomes. Sucks that I have to work so many hours lately; it will pay off one o f these days.
Any who, Cougar Town? Saw two episodes today while doing some work and writing this. Ms. Cox is pretty funny. Oh my! My Rolling with Homies girl died at 32!!! I was sad and the appropriate arm wave after singing…rolling with the homies. I'm sure I embarrassed L when I did this outside the cafeteria at work but if I think back, I think she did it too (behind me).
V brought me a chocolate tree and it's so good (but I can only have a little bit a day). I will enjoy it for a while and he got L some chocolate with bacon (insert shrug here). She loved it and I was afraid to try a piece. He also brought some champagne for us to celebrate, so good I would have chugged the bottle (so ghetto of me). Today I wanted to chug champagne and lick myself. Keep up people.
Here is a recipe I found and will make tomorrow. Don't thank me yet, it may suck.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1 large egg, beaten
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
3/4 cup orange juice
1 cup halved fresh cranberries or 1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter and flour one loaf pan.
Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the butter, egg, and orange zest and juice all at once, stirring just until the mixture is evenly moist. Fold in the cranberries and nuts. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan or pans.
Bake for 1 hour 10 minutes for the large loaf, or 50 to 55 minutes for the smaller loaves, or until a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
Inhale deep and say merry fucking christmas to me!
