Complete Randomness

* My laptop may or not be functional much longer, which I have mixed feelings about. Yes I would love a brand new shiny laptop but my bank account is sobbing at the thought, especially with Christmas right around the corner.

* This is my new favorite song today and I have listened to it 486 times since noon yesterday.


* I am kid wrangling after work today and I am seriously entertaining the idea of locking them in their rooms or making them play outside in the blustery cold so I can have their new Wii all to myself.

* My mom is a gingerbread house genius. She usually enters a competition here locally, but this year she is going big, well to Pittsburgh anyway. The houses get sold and all the proceeds go to Pittsburgh Childrens Hospital. This year, her house is a farm house with apple trees.







* Really, is Big T not an amazing gingerbread house maker? AND every single last thing is edible. I laid claim to the leftover red hots and may or may not have literally burned the inside of my mouth from their consumption.

* Its Wednesday and the work day is almost over, which means only two more days till the weekend!! Can I get a "Woot! Woot!" for that?

*Today I found out that one of local movie theaters will be having a midnight showing of Twilight, and yes, I will be going in the next day or two to get tickets for my friends and I (and I am keeping my fingers crossed that I wont be disappointed with the movie). Show of hands for those of you attending the midnight showing?

So tell me? How is your week going so far? No really, I want to know...

I LOVE the gingerbread house!!! Please tell your mom I said so! I hope she wins!
My week is dragging by. Are you sure it isn't Friday????
Good luck getting some solo Wii time!

OMG. I love that gigerbread house. When you Twitted about it, I didn't know you were talking about THIS kind of house...

Oh, and Twilight? I can't wait. They're supposedly bringing it just for Friday 21st and then it's gonna come back until January. It doesn't make any sense, but really, I CAN'T wait.

Very impressed with the gingerbread house. I wish I was creative like that. I would just end up eating all the ingredients that make the house.

My laptop is not cooperating right now either. That is why I can only blog at work, but hopefully the geek squad will be able to fix it for me this weekend.

Wow your mom is a gingerbread genius! I would love to have her make me one, although I'd be to scared to eat it because it's so nice.

That house is beautiful! I wish I could make something that pretty...

Kim said...

Love the house!!! I actually haven't read the Twilight books yet. I'm not sure why - I don't really like vampire stories - or maybe I'm holding out to try to show my independence? :)

As for my week - it sucked - but the good thing about working part time is my week is now over (at least the working outside of the home part - I guess I still need to take care of Alex) ;)

Nilsa said...

Sissy said...

Kick ass HOUSE! I want to eat a tree. Seriously.

PS...I FINALLY just bought some English muffins and my weekend will be kicked off by spreading a toasted one generously with APPLE BUTTER. Thank you sooooooo much!

I love love love Gingerbread houses! I can't believe your Mom did all that.

When I was little I had a friend who's Mom would get together with friends every year at Christmas time and make gingerbread houses. I loved looking at all the details. They even made a hannukah house once :-)

Katie said...
