Where the hell......

I know you've been wondering where the hell I've been...I just know it. Don't ask me how...I just know these things. Well...I've been.....around. What I don't know is where I've been, what I've been doing & why I didn't get off my lazy ass & post something here. Call me what you will, but ya' know ya' missed me! I'll be posting more regularly here & at my artsy journal because I'm feelin' artsy & also anxious to post here. Can ya' handle it?

The holidays were pretty busy at the store, although not as busy as last year. Yeah...I know....the economy sucks canal water. We did inventory over the New Year's weekend & I must pat Skip & myself on the back for doing it much more quickly & efficiently than my Dad & his bitchy partner ever did in the 11 years prior. Our Christmas festivities were quiet...we went to my M.I.L.'s house on Christmas Eve & exchanged presents with her, my S.I.L. & B.I.L., & my 22 year old niece & 18 year old nephew. As for Christmas Day...Skip & I exchanged presents in the morning, relaxed, & went for Chinese food for dinner. My big present this year nearly blew me to the floor.....a GPS for my car that I've named Priscilla!!!! All I can say is OMFG! Never can I get lost again! It also means that if I have your address, I may just end up at your front door 1 day! :::grin::: My mom & her hubby came over the following Sunday to exchange presents & go out to dinner. New Year's Eve was also quiet...just me & Skip & the fuzzy ones & Dick Clark (who should retire ~ I feel so bad for him).

I've been in a lot of swaps at swap~bot (everything from ATCs to postcards) which I MUST catch up on (lazy, lazy, lazy). I've joined an online class with Kelly Kilmer (love her!). I've hostessed yet another book club meeting ~ we're reading Look Me in the Eye by John Elder Robison this month ~ & had quite an interesting conversation about what 3 famous people would be on your list of "fantasy must haves." Mine are: 1) Jason Hawes (from "Ghost Hunters"); 2) Mike Piazza (former catcher for the NY Mets); 3) Vincent D'Onofrio (Law & Order: Criminal Intent). There are some runners up such as Hugh Jackman (among others), but none top those 3. All I can say is you ladies have some interesting choices! For the 3 ladies who weren't there that night, be prepared to answer the same question at the end of the month. For the rest of you out there.....who are your 3 choices???? Of course, I had to put my boyfriend's delish picture up here for all to see, especially you, Anabel, who couldn't think of what he looked like. Drooooooool! Oops...sorry! Finally able to post the above picture ~ YAY!
That's all for now....gotta go catch up on other online & offline things! If it gets too long before my next post, come kick my butt a little, would ya'?

It's good to hear from you, love. :)

Sounds like you had a lovely holiday season, if it was quiet. Sometimes quiet is a good thing. LOL

My Christmas was anything but! It was so nice though...Parker finally 'GETS' it. And Autumn is old enough now to really be into Santa. We had a fun time with them. They even sat on Santa's lap!

Okay, my top 3? Hmmmm....

1. Robert Pattison (from Twilight)
2. Adam Sandler
3. Michael Vartan (he was in Monster-In-Law and Never Been Kissed)

Honorable Mentions:

John Cusack
Patrick Dempsey
Paul Bettany
