it's monday already????

feels like the weekend just started :(

what the fuck is this white shit on my sweater? i just got it back from the dry cleaners and the sleeve has this white shit on the end. looks like dried spunk. not that i would know what that looks like, i always wash it off really fast ;P muwahaha... anyway, it's fucking gross.

nothing too exciting this weekend...

friday night went to my cousin's... now, i'm sure this is going to make me sound like a freak and/or an idiot, but i didn't know that you're not supposed to put regular dishwashing liquid in the dishwasher. my mom almost never used the dishwasher and we never use it at home. i don't know. makes me feel like the dishes aren't really clean unless i handwash them.

i don't think it would be a good idea to even use ours now... the tubes are probably all dried and cracked...

at any rate, my cousin was almost out of cascade. so we just put in a TINY bit of dishsoap. i assumed it would bubble up a bit, so she only put in a LITTLE bit...

holy christ. it was pouring out of the dishwasher...



i know the picture is small, but... the one squatting is my cousin... i've got my jeans rolled up... and all of the white on the ground? those are suds. it was like a bubbly ass waterfall...

and steve very kindly came by and took a picture... while he was laughing at us.

jerk.

so yeah. that was... uhm. fun... sure.

watched elf. what a fun movie! i didn't think i wanted to watch it. i mean, i do like will ferrell and all, but i dunno. it hadn't really appealed to me. but i found it to be really cute.... i kept on cracking myself up on the ride to work this morning thinking about parts in the movie... i'm going to say it's a 4 outta 5...

had a listen to collision course, the linkin park/jay-z collaboration EP. it's less of a collaboration than it is just a mash of their songs. they did a good job combining their songs together... if you're looking for something original stay away from it. only good if you're a hardcore linkin park and jay-z fan. you can't be a fan of just one of them. i'm not exactly a hardcore fan of either so i was just kind of annoyed by the whole thing.

i baked a pie for the first time in my life. let's just say i'm going to buy pies from now on. look, no one told me i needed to put butter on the bottom of the pan. sheesh. i tried making the crust (which had a lot of butter in it) but i botched it up. so i bought one of those pillsbury refrigerated ready-made crusts... but i guess it didn't have much butter in it. so had i not botched up the crust, it probably wouldn't have needed the butter. oh, never mind. i've decided. i hate baking.

stupid fucking pies.

what else, what else.... steve made me breakfast on saturday morning :) yay! i slept in so late on saturday morning... oh and sunday, too. i almost never sleep in. i slept in until about 9 or so on saturday and until 11 on sunday. crazy. usually i'm up by at least 7 or 7:30 on weekends...

OH! and we put up our christmas tree. now it really feels like xmas. it didn't feel like it at all because it just seemed to be too early for xmas. it just crept up on me... so, we listened to ella fitzgerald sing the christmas songs and we decorated the tree... i started my xmas shopping... i'm almost done. woohoo!

already looking forward to the next weekend, even though i don't think we have anything planned...

I loved Elf too. I didn't think it'd be as funny as it was. I really love Will Ferrell, but I just figured it was another Christmas movie appealing only to kids.

I went Christmas shopping this weekend too, but somehow I only came home with stuff for me. I could've sworn I'd bought other gifts... I guess not. Oh well. :o) Maybe this weekend.

I loved Elf. But, then, I'm a sucker for any kid movie. We went and saw The Polar Express on Friday night for our date. God, how I love a man that goes to kid movies with me! I liked it, I kind of got irritated when they were riding the train there ... like, what's the point. Then I realized, the journey is the point. Ugh, am I getting all sentimental?

Hey Gracie!
What's up on the pies? I've used the ready made crust sans butter and it came out okay. Maybe cuz I'm using cheap-A aluminum pans or because I put so much butter in my fillings. NE-way hang in there. Cooking takes patience...

I heart Steve for taking pictures. That one was too funny. Did you guys manage to keep the suds on the tile? It's a bitch when it gets on your carpet.

Pie crust is difficult to make. There are a lot of elements that can go wrong. Don't give up on achieving pie superdom. I'll help ya. What kind of pie were you making anyway? I only ask because I still have a damn contact buzz from Vegas and apparently the munchies...

How did you decorate your tree? White lights? Popcorn? Where's the damn picture? :)

First, elf sucked. Second, post larger pictures! I clicked on that image expecting a larger version and it almost looked smaller!!!

jules: why didn't you tell me about not putting dishsoap in the dishwasher??? :P

jeanette: i love a man who'll watch kid movies with me, too... also, he'll hold me and hand me kleenexes as i sob my heart out. :D gotta love him :)

AS, apparently, i'm going to need to use your cheap ass aluminum pie pans, then. stupid, stupid pies. *grunt*

nina: yeah... we were really trying to keep it off the carpet... that's why we were scooping up sudes off the ground... we had these pans under the waterfall of sudes, but they were pretty shallow, so it was pretty hard work.

i dunno. some stupid caramelized apple pecan pie. damn stupid pie. stupid, stupid pie.

i'll have to put up a pic of the tree, but i think we're missing some ornaments... so when it's all done...

AB: oops. guess my phone's settings are screwed up. secondly... elf didn't suck. you suck! :P heh...

Oh, meant to say on the dishwasher experiment ... my X did that once. LOL .... LOL some more. OMG was he PISSED!! *snort*

My question is, the dishwasher is waterproof, right? Supposedly. Yet when regular dish soap is put in there, it bubbles out. How, if it's waterproof, does it do that?
