So, I’m Back!… Again.

Bath and Body Works store in Ohio

This one's in Ohio. Where we do not reside. It's so pretty, though!

So, after months of being ‘back’, because I stupidly thought the wordpress app would be useful in any way, shape, or form, I am actually back, because our new house’s neighbor’s have unrestricted internet! So… Hi! I have no idea what I am supposed to say, though. Oh, I applied for a job at Bath and Body Works yesterday. I’m actually supposed to be looking for a job right now, but the temptation to blog was too strong!

People already have Christmas decorations up, can you believe that??? And I thought I was obsessed! After this post I have to check out my sister’s blog. It should be spectacular. And by ‘spectacular’, I mean not so much.

My sister is watching How to Train Your Dragon for the fourth time in three days. It’s a good thing  it’s a good movie, or she’d be ever so dead!

Ooh! After this I’m, so going to change my theme! I imagine seeing the same black theme for seven months got a tad boring.

We’re getting snow in two days, HERE!!!!! Finally! And I got a bunch of snow- appropriate clothes for Christmas, too! Even boots, and a scarf with hand pockets!!! Yay!!!!!! Snow in Arizona… The news says not to stop in the road and play in the snow, but since we’re going into town to go to the movies, I can bet that that’s what we’ll end up doing. Screw road safety, it’s snow in the most un-snowy place in America!!!

Well, Here Goes!

Good morning, and welcome to the first annual Blogathon, please take you’re seats, and remember, no flash photography, smoking, or sexual relations while the post is in progress. Thank you!

I have discovered something. Sweet potatoes, are disgusting. No matter how you cook them, the best result you seem to be able to get is a tasteless crust, filled with icky mush. So I now have two random sweet potatoes sitting around, to go unused, uneaten. Now I know why on Thanksgiving you’re s’posed to cover them in brown sugar and marshmallows! If it’s not gonna taste like anything, go crazy with your combinations, I guess.

Apparently this Christmas our decorations are going to have a theme. Not our tree, or stockings, those are the same every year, barring any new family members and ornaments, but the outside ones, the table decorations… those are all Charlie Brown. Even the Nativity scene. It’s really cute.

My cat just tackled his mother. I loled, and then choked on my spit. Coolness.

Holy jesus, it’s cold! I don’t know how all you higher elevation states can handle it! New Jersey‘s already getting snow! According to various weather sites, AZ isn’t getting much snow this year, especially not Southern AZ, but I still have high hopes. Our average high for this time of year is like, 72 degrees. This year, highs have stayed around 69, 70 degrees, so I’m ever hopeful.

Trici, you really need to change the link to your blog, because I can’t remember what it is now, and every time I click on your name, it says that the blog has been deleted. If I have to, I’ll do it for you on Monday. But it must be done. It must!

I’m hungry, and I don’t feel like cooking. This is a conundrum I come in contact with almost daily, yet I still haven’t found the solution. Eating copious amounts of chocolate doesn’t help, tea doesn’t help… Eventually I’ll have to leave my room to find a suitable alternative to cooking. Oh, the horror!

Darren Criss. I have listened to ‘Teenage Dream’ a zillion times this week. Literally. Even in the shower, when I can barely hear it, because I can’t bring my laptop in the shower with me, or it’ll break. That’s what they should work on next. Not making laptops thinner, or smaller, or touchscreen, but water proof. It’s like ‘really? You can fit everything that makes a laptop a laptop onto a seven inch long tablet, but you can’t cover the thing in waterproof plastic or whatever?’

Glee has a Christmas cd coming out this month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t wait… It’s going to be so good, and I may never listen to another Christmas cd ever again. Mostly because all of my Christmas music is already on my computer, or iPod.

I love having a phone that gets the internet, have I mentioned that? Because, if my computer’s being a bitch, i can still do things. And i have access to YouTube, which means I have access to Darren Criss, and Glee, and AVPM/AVPS, and a bunch of other things I wouldn’t be able to watch, even if my computer was working!

Winter Toes- I hate them. When your feet dry out, and no matter how much lotion you put on them, all you achieve is an awesome pepperminty smell? I guess it’s fate’s way of making sure people wear the right kind of shoes during the winter. No one wants anyone to see their dried out toes, you know!

My internet’s not working. If I had had to reload the page, and lost all the progress I’ve made, i would be SUPER pissed. Thank god for drafts, right?

Supercalifragilistic Expialidocious.

My name is Amber…

Yeah?

And I like Glee…

Yeah?

And I’ll like Glee…

Yeah?

For the rest of my life!

For the rest of her life!

Is it worse to be called a slut or a whore, do you think? I mean, if you’re called a slut, you have sex with pretty much anyone. If you’re called a whore, you have sex with anyone who can afford it. So when you’re called a slut, you’re being told that you aren’t prejudiced, and everyone has an equal opportunity to have sex with you. But if you’re being called a whore, you’re being told that you have standards, and are a good business person. So, using this information, I think I’d rather be called a slut then a whore.

Men of Glee Ratings-

Finn: 7.2- He’s cute, I guess, but he’s also an idiot, and has a blank look on his face all the time.

Puck: 8.6- Hot (No matter what you say, Willow!), but mean. But he’s trying to be better, hence the point 6.

Sam: 5.9- Not very cute, in my opinion, but seems like a pretty good person on the insides.

Kurt: 8.2- Adorable, but kind of martyr-y, you know? Not exactly the right word for it, but he seems to be a wee bit self centered. Which isn’t a bad thing, but isn’t a good thing, either.

Mike: 6.5- Cute, but don’t know much about him. Love that he has an actual character, though!

Matt: 6- Cute, but missing, without explanation.

Blaine: 10000000.7- Yeah… If i need to explain, you’re on the wrong blog.

Glee Girl Ratings-

Rachel: 4- I hate her. A LOT. Annoys me to no end. But she can sing, damn her.

Quinn: 6- Her and Sam is so cute, it’s sickening. And she too, can sing.

Santana: 8- So frickin’ funny, it’s insane. Even if she is a whore.

Brittany: 100000- The best Glee character ever. E. Ver.

Mercedes: 5- I don’t really like her much. They all have that stereotype they fit, but they all break away from it a little bit. Except for her. And that bugs me. But she’s no Rachel, hence the 5.

The ‘I Love Darren Criss’ Song-

I love Darren Criss, yes I do!

I would like to steal his shoe.

Left one, right one, doesn’t matter,

Both of them would be much better!

I like his hair, his cool eyebrows,

But I wouldn’t break into his house!

He wrote the songs for A Very Potter Sequel,

When he sings I start to squeallllllllll!!!!

Okay, so maybe I’m not the best song writer, but you get the gist.

My aunt and uncle bought a boat. A frickin’ BOAT!! Why does no one in my family get that they only modes of transportation acceptable to me are: walking, driving, and flying??? The last two only when I’m not the one in control! Ugh!

I’m gonna end this now, because we had to go to the store, and it broke the flow. Guess what I did, though? I got my picture taken with Santa, who was visiting!! Yes, I am that cool.

Moody Headphones, Neil Patrick Harris, Christmas

Rent: Filmed Live on Broadway

Image via Wikipedia

What do these things have to do with each other? Seemingly, nothing, but they do actually all tie together, in an only slightly ruffled package.

My headphones PMS, I swear. Some days, only the right bud works, other days, only the left. I stopped using them for a week once, because I thought they were broken. They were not. It’s really hard to find good quality headphones that don’t go into your ear. I hate those kinds of headphones. They’re too big for my ears, and they give me a headache, on the off chance i can squeeze them in.

Neil Patrick Harris is perfect. Truly. And where any self respecting woman would only pine slightly once realizing his cruelly decided sexuality (Damn you, God!) but me? I seem to only love him more. Like, I was listening to the Rent soundtrack on YouTube, via my phone, and I found a video of him singing, which was nice, but I knew he could do that. Then, I look a little deeper, and I find a clip of him -wait for it- serenading his boy toy. Yup. And I think I should probably stop calling him his ‘Boy Toy’ some might find it offensive, I guess.

Would you say Rent is a Christmas movie? Because it’s based around that time of year, and there’s even a song, but it doesn’t really scream ‘holiday movie’, you know? Then again, neither does While You Were Sleeping, but I watch it every year, so…

Did you see how they all tie into each other? If you did, you get a virtual cookie.

Summary Photo of a Shepherd's Pie

Image via Wikipedia

Tonight I am making my first Fall/Winter meal of the year! A kind of Shepherd’s pie thing, but with beef. It’s perfect for cold weather, because it’s made with potatoes, and corn, and meat, and it fills you up nicely. I’ve also started my Christmas Cleaning Spree, where i clean and clean and clean, until the house looks just like the ones in commercials, and movies. I love the holidays, and will do anything to create the perfect one. Including clean. And you all know how I feel about cleaning. I hate it. I would rather die a trillion deaths, then clean. But i do it voluntarily every year, for Christmas. There are families that don’t ever see each other all at once until around Thanksgiving. My family is lucky in that we all live by each other, so every birthday, every minor holiday is turned into this big thing. But we go all out for Christmas. We all meet at my aunt and uncle’s Christmas Eve, and the house is always perfect. Cookies, and candy and good food lie around on every available surface, and the tree. Oh, the tree. We all bring our own decorations the week after Thanksgiving, and decorate it together, which means a lot to me, because then I can hang the ornaments that me and my birth mom made when i was little, and no one really likes them. They remind us of her, and I’m the only one who has any good memories of her, that are fairly recent. (We were kind of cut off from the rest of the family from the time my middle sister was born, until my 8th birthday.) And we all eat our Christmas dinner- Green chicken. It’s actually chicken pesto, but my sister called it the green chicken the first Christmas my uncle made it, and it stuck. After dinner, we sit by the fireplace and read Christmas stories. Always the same ones- The Polar Express, The Nativity Story, A Night before Christmas- plus a few random ones dug out of garages, and old bookcases. Then the kids each get to open one present. Almost always, it’s new jammies, so we all match for Christmas morning. Then the wee ones- anyone under 10- go to bed, and then it’s time to break out the peppermint schnapps and poker set. No, not really. We each get a special kind of hot cocoa, and starts setting out Santa gifts, and stuffing stockings. it sucks, being the youngest one up, because you’re then one who’s sent back and forth, relaying messages, like where a gift goes, who a gift goes to, “how many candy canes per stocking”, “do you want this wrapped”… it’s fun. But this year i won’t be the youngest, nor the second youngest. My cousin Chloe, who is nine, might be joining us this year, depending on whether my sister, who is ten, can handle going to sleep alone.

The Perfect Blanket

blanket

Image via Wikipedia

I did it, people. I have found the perfect, year round blanket. It’s light, but thick, and it’s not too flumfy, or too stiff, either. And the colors! It has warmish yellows in it, which are perfect for summer and fall, an icy blue, for winter, and I bright green for spring! Wanna know where I purchased this goldmine? Not Wal-Mart, or Target. Not Bed, Bath and Beyond. Fry’s. Yes, Fry’s, the grocery store. *sigh* In honor of this amazing find, I am watching a christmas movie. And I made my christmas list. The family friendly one, anyways. TeeHee…

Ugh! I Hate Weather!

Sweat It Out

Image via Wikipedia

The sun should die. Just flat out die. And so should sweat. Sweat is gross, and sticky, and… just ugh. Summer can NOT end soon enough. Once summer’s over, you get new tv shows, cooler weather, and holidays!! Nothing wrong there. I can’t wait for summer to be over, though, heat aside. Winter is always so much more uplifting to me. You get to watch such happy movies, and eat the best, worst food ever… And you get presents! Yeah yeah, I know. I’m shallow. But who doesn’t like receiving and giving gifts? This Christmas, instead of just giving out cookie brownies like last year (and no, that’s not a typo. they were cookie brownies.) I am going to be designing a T-shirt for all my friends. Like today i wore a shirt I made last night, that has the word “bloompa” painted on it in orange paint and glitter. Bloompa is shorthand for Black Oompa Loompa.
