Good Days, Bad Days.

Sunday, November 30th, 2003

Happy last day of November, everyone. 31 more short, tiny miniscule days and we will be leaving the jolly year of 2003 behind us. In honor of the passing of another year, I thought I might post every day until the end but that seemed rather ambitious. It’s 6:30 pm and I still haven’t taken a shower or really gotten dressed yet so that should tell you about ambition and the state of it at the Q house. However, for those of you playing at home, you may have noticed the long string of continual posting. Two weeks, in fact, if I keep it up through Thursday. I’m not saying I will, I’m just saying I might. The same goes for the whole December thing. We shall see.

Warm Fuzzies

Tuesday, November 25th, 2003

So now that I know it’s getting cold I am dressed for the weather. I’m back in jeans again today AND leggings. Comfy Cozy. I may spontaneously combust later if it gets warmer but for now I’m clam happy in the warm.

Arctic Blast

Monday, November 24th, 2003

Yesterday at this exact time I was out tooling about in a T-Shirt and jeans. Today I’m freezing my whooo-hah (courtesy of the leggings with the GIANT hole in the crotch. I need to do some mending) and other parts of my body that I’d really rather not get that cold. I can’t find my mittens either because it has been so balmy lately and they were just getting in the way when I folded them into my purse. “Oh, I’ll just toss them there for when the weather gets cold.” Hey, guess what? Now where the heck was ‘there’ anyway? Hmmmm.

Wine, Wedding and Whooo, am I Tired!

Sunday, November 23rd, 2003

Hey ho! Yeah, I post dated the snack food review so if you came here yesterday looking for your JSFR fix and didn’t get it and now are all upset that it says it was posted yesterday and it was not well…Tough. My blog and I felt like sticking with the snack food review Saturdays. Ha! The good news is that I may write up the Boton rice candy for timely (in the actual timely) posting this coming Saturday. PLUS! I went shopping and got much more Japanese tasty goodness to review. There is a third flavor of Yan Yan, a matching flavor of Pocky and something that I can’t even begin to describe but it has some great engrish on it. Stay Tuned!

Happy Blog-a-versary to TheMan and Other Nifty Things

Friday, November 21st, 2003

TheMan states that tomorrow he will have been (I love the English language, past and present verb tenses to indicate a future happening all in one serving) blogging for a year but in fact last November 21st was his first entry. Ergo, I declare today the official TheMan Blog-a-versary. At least it is so in the booniverse.

The Friday Five (11/21)!

Friday, November 21st, 2003

OK, up front? Sorry about the lame ass quality of the Friday Fives. List, list, list…snooze, snooze, snooze. I went to town for you guys last week when this stupid “Name X number of useless things to bore your audience!” trend reared it’s ugly head but today I just don’t have it in me to expound waxfully on five things I want to stuff into a watermelon. OK, it’s still not as bad as “How do I have my eggs” but man. Learn to ask the questions folks. Ask any (good) Journalism major and they will tell you all about open ended questions. Nothing more boring than “Yes. No. Toledo. Mel Gibson…”. Tell me why Toledo (please! I’ve been trying to figure that one out for a while now). I could care less about the bare bones fact of Toledo. Hell, anyone could answer Toledo without a thought. I have no idea even what’s with Toledo but I’m never going to know with these kind of questions am I? And look! The intro is now longer than the damn Friday Five, questions and all. That is so not right.
