Can you tell?
Guess I'm putting this under "rantings & whinings," although I'd have to add "ramblings" to be accurate. I've had a million ideas for focused blog posts in the last few days - none of which are this post.
Got the Christmas tree up with my roommate last night; that was cool. She wanted to flock it a bit, and we got a Douglas. Two new things for me, and I'm really happy with both. I was having a difficult time getting Christmasy, but as usual, the tree saves the spirit day!
Tonight I'm making Challah for my bosses for Hanukkah, and I find that I'm actually a little nervous about giving it to them. It's dark on top - damn my crap apartment oven - but a bit stuck in one of the loaf pans and it tastes good. Nervous about giving Challah - I am absurdly far from South Florida tonight, where I would give Challah with abandon! Like I'm suddenly worried that my Challah won't measure up in L.A. Or will strike them as odd.
Dude. I'm from South Florida; I'm a pagan that bakes Challah. (And makes charoset, but that's a whole 'nother season.)
Why didn't I buy that bag of blue bows? I don't have any bows. Ah well, at least I have Hannukah cards.
Becca, we are SO having Latkas on Christmas Eve. Holy crap, I wish I had some Latkas RIGHT NOW. I might actually kill for a noodle kugel like Amy makes.
December is a little insane, but I guess I'm having fun. Kinda looking forward to buckling down in January, truth be told, but with Hunky Actor Boyfriend working through every party I've got and leaving for a big hunk of time over Christmas proper (AND the solstice, bah!), there's just nothing to do but have fun with my friends, I guess.
Dude, every time I make bread I think, why don't I do this more often? Like, I'd love to make fabulous whole-grain loaves. The kneading is awesome, and holy crap, I can not believe I have four bosses now, so no extra loaf of (clearly so *not* whole grain) Challah. I'm totally going to have to make more so I can have some.
But not tonight.
I have to admit that the seasonal beer I'm drinking a second bottle of right now is simply not my type of beer. And I cannot believe that I didn't cook my damn pizza when I got home! Loser. And said not tasty beer is giving me quite a buzz. Hence, this fabulous, rambling post.
OK, seriously? SERIOUSLY. How many games of Carcassonne do I have to join on Yucata to actually get to take a turn like EVER. Peeps from around the world - please - holy crap - take your damn turn, dudes!
In other gaming news, I have just started gaming with strangers online due to my desire to level on Yucata. What a nerd I am, seriously. Anyway, Carc is one thing, but I just joined a game of my most favoritest game, In the Shadow of the Emperor on MaBi Web, and I am psyched because Shadow is a fabulously vicious game.
OK, enough rambles. DEAR GOD, SOMEBODY TAKE THEIR DAMN TURN.
