crazy christmas madlibs!

Dear Santa,

I have been a good girl.

It really wasn't my fault what happened at carrie's Christmas party. It was katie who spiked the punch with too much cranberry juice. I can't help it if I drank 4 glasses. It was so good---smelled and tasted just like pine.

I thought it was funny when I put aaron's thong on my head and danced the cha cha on the lazyboy while singing `i hate myself for loving you'. I didn't mean to break carrie's jukebox and don't know why carrie would sue me for mail fraud.

I don't remember calling adrian's wife a supersonic chicken---even though she looked like one with green eye shadow and blue lipstick!

And when I threw up on jamie's husband's finger, it was only because I ate too much of that salsa.

After all that fun, I admit I was a little tired. So I fell asleep on my way home and drove my limo through my neighbor's garage. I don't think that was any reason for my neighbor to call me a shocking camel and have me arrested for assault and battery!

So, I sit in my jail cell on Christmas Eve, all rich and crazy. And I'm really not to blame for any of this weird stuff. Please bring me what I want the most---bail money!

Sincerely and hardly yours,
susan (Really a nice girl!)

P.S. It's only 8 bucks!

christmas comes early

since we're heading to maryland, aaron and i exchanged gifts yesterday. everything he got me was pretty much a surprise. all except the long johns i asked for. the shoes (see left) were completely unexpected and he also got us tickets to see the red hot chili peppers in march. a complete and welcome surprise! other misc. items: electronic sudoku, $30 starbucks giftcard, zoolander and a flashlight headlamp. i pretty much made out and it's not even christmas yet!

all hopped up on the "p"

we're officially trying to get preggers. just got back from my annual with prenatal vitamins in hand. we're not hardcore trying at the moment, mainly because we have the reception in january that i'd like to have a little fun at. we'll be sure to let you know if there's anything to report.

boy bonanza
yesterday i found out jennaya is having a boy. already have a named picked out. samuel jamison. cute name. i think the reign of our friends having girls has come to an end. baimas are having a boy. the bakers as well.

matt and kristin announced they were pregnant tuesday. they've opted not to find out the sex of the baby. more power to them, i don't think i could hold out. oh yeah, david also announced they were pregnant. pretty soon we'll be the minority.

we leave for the east coast tomorrow night. need to get a pet-friendly hotel room today. looking forward to spending 12 hours in a car with two squirrelly dogs. fun! we'll be out there til next saturday. then we're back in the patch for the new year's party at syam's. reception in january. academy in february. house-hunting in march. busy, busy, busy!

transfer of thought

a daily blogger i am not, but i have been pretty good using the myspace blog feature. 186 blogs to date. unfortunately i've been neglecting this blogger blog.

since friends and family are using it, i might as well get on board. i just transfered 25 blogs, think i'll stop there. it's a definite chore and most of my posts are not family friendly. we'll call this my g-rated blog.

i think i can type "blog" one more time without it completely dominating my post. too late.

setting the world on fire....

...or just myself

last week the power went out courtesy of the great snowstorm of 2006. went out thursday evening or i should say early friday morning. just about everything was closed, including aaron's clinic friday. we headed over to the langei's. they still had power. the stealeys met us there. a little "get warm, stay warm" party of sorts. no power all day friday. get home around 4 p.m. and it's already 57 degrees in the house. call up jamie and ask if we can crash at her pad for the night. no problem. next morning, head home, still now power. 45 degrees now. we turn on the gas fireplace and i proceed to hang out directly in front of it. a little while later i reach back and feel the melted nylon/polyester blend. "oh, he's not going to be happy." apparently i was sitting too close and proceeded to melt the sleeping bag and the ski jacket i had on. looks like a shark took a bite out of both. no persons were harmed during the incident. don't you worry.
