Martini 'n You

I hope everyone has a safe and prosperous New Year!
Maneuver the roads with care.

Attention Cub shoppers: Unlike previously suspected, you are not really interested in purchasing those live lobsters for $6.99/lb. Silly you, you don't even like lobsters! So move on along so there will be some left on New Year's Eve! Bought 2 today but they won't last until New Year's. Bummer, will have to eat lobsters tonight. Let's just hope they have some left on Sunday so we can have them on New Year's Eve at Rob & Heather's!

Hate Shopping

Went to Rosedale - they didn't have the sweater at all but they found a smaller size in Chicago - they're sending it to me no charge! Customer service still exists!!

Tips for you people on the freeways: The left lane is for passing, not for 10 MPH under the speed limit. It's better to get out of the way and not hold up traffic than to have 5 cars up your a$$. And if it really is such a hard thing for you to move into the right lane, please resist the urge to speed up when someone is about to finally get around your slowness on your right! UGH!

Don't Like Shopping

Went to Ridgedale last night to make 2 exchanges and spend my $25 gift certificate to Marshall Fields from Rob & Heather. I found this sweater for $50 that I liked but talked myself out of it. We walked about 20 ft and I decided that I did want it (was 30% off). Went back to the display and this other lady was looking at it! It was like knowing that someone else was interested in that sweater made her want it more and she wouldn't put it down! She kept asking her daughter if she wanted it but she said no and in the end I bought the sweater. As luck would have it - it's too big and I have to try to exchange it lol. I'll be going to Ridgedale tonight. Ugh - these DALES! :)

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone (belated as it is)! I hope Santa was good to everyone - according to us, he outdid himself again!
Hope everyone has some great New Year's plans! We're going to be getting live lobsters (that much we know for sure) - otherwise it's all up in the air.

One more run to Target

One more run to Target today and then I really should be done Christmas shopping! Am going to try to finish wrapping tonight. Kelly received 2 Christmas packages yesterday! One from his parents and one from his Grandma in NY. We dug into the cookies (and awesome fudge), but will wait until Christmas to open the gifts.

Real Realtor

My cousin Heather is closing on her 3rd house today! Congratulations!

OK, so I'm working with the 3rd different kind of counter now. The first kind (www.digits.com) just stopped counting one day. Hopefully this bravenet service will prove to be better. What's getting to me is that now I have 0 visitors again and can't help thinking that the number of visitors is somehow related to my self-worth. Actually, forget it, I'm just hungry.

Mind Clutter

I think I've collected most of the fragments of my brain and pieced them back together. I went shopping at lunchtime. I found a few sweaters for myself.
Carnac the Magificent says: Marshall Field's 13-hour Sale.
Inside the envelope: Makes me think I have more money than I have.
OK, so that wasn't funny. I'll have to work on this.
Today is my Dad's birthday - Happy Birthday Dad!
4 more days to wait for Santa!

Amy Irene Pease
She's moving away
Moving away
to a place called Green Bay

She will be missed
I hope that she knows
We'll think of her lots
like every time that it snows

Also in the summer
When we go to Lone Tree
Or to the Fine Line
to butt-wiggle to Boogie

Us Vikings fans
We don't mind
Her favor for Favre
and the green and yellow kind

And so I will close
now that everyone knows
how much we'll miss Amy
and her cute little nose :)

Good Luck Amy!
We will be tailgating in Green Bay!
Thank you for being a good friend.

I registered my own domain and I'm an idiot. I pick the one service that does not include url forwarding or e-mail forwarding. This means that I have a domain but I can't forward it to my site which exists on the mindspring server. Mindspring doesn't allow the use of your own domain unless I sign up for their web hosting service which costs $50/month. Had I known this was going to be similar to buying a car which can only be serviced overseas and only takes Canadian gasoline, well I wouldn't have done it!! Oh and I can transfer my domain to another registrar but I'd have to basically pay for another year! I'm afraid to do that even because I'll probably choose the world's worst hosting company! I've asked Kari for help (because she truly is the Internet queen) and a fellow allpro (fantasy footballer). Although we were just head-to-head this week and I won so I wonder if I can trust his advice if he will even offer any!!!! Woe is me. I am not a homeowner because I own webspace I cannot access.

Mmm... Cookies

Added the Neiman Marcus cookie recipe.
Vikes lost to Detroit on Sunday - they had a win coming. Vegas odds for a team going 0-14 is 5,000 to 1! At least Moss scored twice - my fantasy team put up some serious numbers. Rhodes 2 TDs, Moss 2 TDs, Holmes 1 TD, Pollard 1 TD. Fiedler got NEGATIVE points!!!! Only 149 passing yds and 3, yes 3, interceptions! I would have been better off starting Culpepper who sat the whole game!! I've got 72.7 points as of now. If I win (and I should), I've beaten both of my division leaders in the past 2 weeks. I'm not in the playoffs because I lost to the 3rd sead by LESS than ONE point! Yes, I'm a little frustrated. But at least I'm collecting some money - we get $10 if we are the top scorer of the week (which I have been the past 2 weeks darn it!) Yeah yeah, enough crabbing about football!
Thought for the day: The early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

The Next Walter Ray

I bowled a 126, 169 and a 141. Pretty good considering my thumb hurts pretty bad. We lost 2 of our games by 2 points. We're in last place. :) At least we have fun before we go to the bar and get drunk and fight. :) Sometimes I'm not sure who's my worst enemy, him or myself. Either way I have heartache tonight. Ugh it's 2:27am, how could I not!?!?!?!?

Bigger Bowl

I'm making those "neiman marcus" cookies. I've only made them once before and that was a 1/2 batch... I will never make a full batch again!!!!! 4 c flour, 2 c sugar, 2 c butter, 5 c oatmeal, 2 bags choc chips, 8 oz grated hersheys, etc. etc. etc. I don't have a bowl big enough to mix it in! I had to wax paper the kitchen table and... well, let's just say it took some muscle! I'm not saying it's not worth it or anything, just recommend making half batches :). Tonight we have bowling and tomorrow I have a Christmas party (what the cookies are for).

Games Are Fun

Added a game to the fun page! Hope you enjoy! Christmas shopping is done (finally!) Tonights project is preparing and mailing all of the Christmas greetings (I know I know, I'm running late). The Post Office is our friend!

No Cup for You

Added a fun page. Only has tic-tac-toe on it for now but I'm working on a few java apps and games. Also trying to figure out forms so I can put some instant surveys up. Anyone have any tips for me? I'm new at this stuff...!

All Shopped Out!

Got most of the Christmas shopping done on Saturday. Braved the Mall of America. Parking was crazy but the crowds inside weren't bad surprisingly.

Went to the Vikings game today vs. Tennessee (Thanks Rob!). Vikes scored 6 TDs!!! Unreal. Bouman 348 yds and 4 TDs! A good day to be a VIkings fan!! Moss' 73 yd TD gave my fantasy team hope! And Priest Holmes has 151 yds and 2 TDs at the half! See, miracles DO happen!! :)

Three's Company

3 new albums on the photos page!


I have been playing solitaire forever and finally won a game. Still haven't had a cigarette. Haven't really *wanted* one but have often thought about the fact that I have no idea why I stopped. It's not like I really wanted to quit. Maybe it's a test, maybe it's the right thing to do? Who knows, but I'll bet Frank wishes I would have quit a few weeks earlier! I'm not counting my chickens, however, I still haven't been through the true test... the bar. And Sunday we're going to the Vikings game, so that's when the truth will come out. Wish me luck! And wish my boys luck - the better they play, the less likely I am to want to smoke! ;)

Say Something!

The comments aren't working properly yet... and now they are :) Woo hoo!

Wal-Mart Kills

I got this from another blogpage you've got to check this out! and this scares me (Sheryl, have they been to your Wal-mart??).
Oh and it's been over 24 hours since I've had a cigarette! I think I'm even over the initial crabbiness although the people around me may beg to differ.

Go Bare

Posted the Christmas letter on the homepage. Starting to get into the Christmas spirit although it's challenging when you have a topless tree. Bought Jazmine an Eeyore stocking yesterday. Eeyore is her favorite toy - she hides it!

We're preparing to put lights

We're preparing to put lights on our topless Christmas tree. Actually, Kelly's preparing to put lights on the tree, I'm typing. Again. Could this be an addiction?

The Two Hour Tour

I've been working on this for about 2 hours and finally have this thing set up the way I want (I think). Why is it that I cannot ever seem to make things simple? So demanding! Must go home to eat, shop and watch Law & Order!
