Last night, I went to get my Christmas shopping done in one fell swoop, hoping to jostle myself into the Christmas spirit. Well, my little Grinch soul was not to be budged. I did manage to get everyone's presents bought and wrapped, but I still feel about as cheery as a piece of DEAD HOLLY.


May everyone from Whoville wither up and die.

    It would seem you are resisting the Holiday Spirit with all your might. If you can't master the emotional bit, try the physical bit!

    /me hands you two shots of whiskey.. (holiday spirit, haha!)

    I was thinking I need to have some rum with a bit of eggnog?

This odd narrative is my life. I ended up in Pittsburgh, of all places--from the beach. I have no hobbies, other than cooking excessively and eating microwave popcorn. I enjoy shopping, the Food network, hiding the remote so the Food network cannot be turned off, find ethnic food stores and restaurants and reading voraciously. My life is decidedly pedestrian.


I worked in the car business where I was required to be ruthless and soul-less wench, which is when I started this project. Since then, I've kept it up because secretly, I've always wanted to join the military. Every male in my mother's family has joined and I quietly entertain thoughts of joining. I haven't yet and don't know if I ever will, but sending the troops cookies keeps me sane. it makes me think I still have a shred of human kindness left in my withering soul. it's a small way for me to salute the men and women who are brave enough to fight for freedom. And makes me feel like I'm contributing toward troop morale--even if I'm not. So if you want to help, send me addresses of troops you know stationed overseas. you may also contribute toward the cost of chocolate chips, but don't feel obligated, that link is here only by request.
