I wanted to post this not only to share, but out of fear that Facebook has a tendency to make things disappear. Max wrote the most beautiful, heartfelt post right after we exchanged Christmas gifts this year. He really knocked it out of the park gift wise, but getting to read this was just as special as getting the painting itself. (click below to continue)

Well, it was another successful Christmas where those close to me showered me with love and fabulous material possessions. Worthy sacrifices were made at the altar of consumerism. A few of the highlights: I got lots of Twilight shwag (nerd alert, i know i know), a Ninja blender (!!!), a fancy crock pot, custom cupcake converse, a beautiful necklace, a fancy digital camera, a cupcake cake pan and a luxe terry robe with my name embroidered on it.

We did gifts for the youngsters at MF’s house on Christmas eve, then skyped my folks from my house on Christmas morning. It was a bummer we couldn’t have mom and dad come down for the holidays, but I’m thankful for rad technology which made it feel like they were right there with us.

Now if I could only tear MF away from his new copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops to let me watch my new Twilight Trilogy.

People bites freak me out. I’ve never been one to enjoy sexy little nibbles on the neck, play biting or any sort of related foolishness. I can only attribute this to when I came in the room when my parents were watching “Cape Fear” and Robert DeNiro took a bite out of some lady’s cheek. At the tender age of 10, this likely scarred me for life.

While calmly doing the dishes this weekend, MF came up behind me and kissed my neck. Sweet right? Totes… Until he went “RAWWWR” and proceed to play-bite me in the neck.

My first instinct was to screech in terror and instantly crumple up on the floor of the kitchen.

He walks away laughing, but frustrated. I’m still laying flat on my back on the floor of the kitchen. Laughing hysterically, of course.

“How can I have any fun with you when you just play dead like a goddamn possum?!”


I was also accused of such “possum-esque” behavior when we went to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios for my birthday last month. After I got over the initial desire to piss myself in fear at the first haunted house we went to (in broad daylight) I was comforted by the fact that the actors (read: terrifying zombie monsters) couldn’t actually touch me.

My solution? Freeze in my tracks. If I’m not moving, they can’t chase me. If I’m not being chased, I’m less terrified. My brain said “maybe if I don’t move, they wont see me”… because zombies are totally like a t-rex.

Happy Thanksgiving, friends! I only have a few minutes before MF and I head to his mom’s place for a big fancy dinner, sure to be filled with food, wine, laughs, inappropriate comments and awkward moments. But what’s a family gathering without all that? I just wanted to take a second before we leave to give a quick list of things I’m thankful for. Keeping in mind it will not include the things that I’m ALWAYS thankful for- friends, family, health etc.

  1. My cooking ability. I’m thankful that I can whip together something impressive and tasty at a moment’s notice.
  2. Latisse. I’m loving my super long eyelashes which will continue to get longer until like January.
  3. Dr. Kupanoff at First Regional Animal Hospital. Ruca is doing great, and she totally excised that mass on her mammary gland.
  4. My two jobs. I do complain about working so much, but deep down I am thankful that I have the option of working more hours whenever I want a little extra cash. Many people don’t have this luxury.
  5. The Limited. Their pants fit my big ass perfectly, and that’s really hard to come by.
  6. Speaking of my big ass, I’m thankful for my hourglass figure. I could stand to lose a few LB’s… but overall I’m mostly content with my bod.
  7. My car. I’ve been shopping around for something different, but I’m thankful that my car really hasn’t given me any trouble since I bought it back in ’06. Plus, it takes it in stride when I refer to it as the “PT Loser”
  8. Swedish Fish
  9. Red Cup season at Starbucks
  10. Last, but definitely not least, I’m thankful for MF :) He can be grumpy sometimes, but deep in the cockles of his little heart, he is a sweet, generous, honest and kind person. Plus, he’s hot… and I’m thankful for his hotness.
