Oh damn.. I'm REALLY a slacker.

Oh well.. it was the holidays. And to wish you a Happy New Year, here you go...

Yep.. you're welcome.

Yet another good reason why I've been a blogging delinquent...

This is Brewski. My sister found him in our basement on Veteran's Day, and we haven't let him go ever since! Adorable right? So you can imagine that when I come home from work, I'd rather play with him as opposed to blogging!

So, here's the story: Tre heard meowing in our basement that week, but couldn't find anything. She was home on Veteran's Day and in the basement, when Brewski made his appearance. She managed to coax him out of the hole in the wall he was living in (he's so tiny he must have burrowed in from outside) and he ate his weight in chicken. We took him to the vet who said he couldn't be more than five weeks old, which is pretty early to be away from the mother. He goes in for shots this coming week. We initially thought he was a girl and named him Gracie, but apparently we were wrong (in our defense, the vet said it's tough to tell at such a young age). Tre wanted to name him Reggie, but I refused. He doesn't look like a Reggie! Mom suggested Brewski and it's the only one we could agree on (Tre's list - Apollo, Quentin and Colton.. apparently the cat went to boarding school or something).

So.. yeah.. now we're cat people.. which is a little tough since i'm a little allergic to him, but we'll work it out... Benadryl is a god-send!

Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! I made my first ever Amaretto Cheesecake. My grandpa used to make them and they were my absolute favorite. The mixer broke halfway through, but thankfully it didn't matter. The cheesecake came out great, so much so that i had to have 3 slices myself!

The only disappointing thing about Thanksgiving was that somehow, our Wii went missing. Our front room has been un-usable since June, when the ceiling fell in. We took everything out of the room and put it in the dining room until it was slightly cleaned up. Thankfully, we put all the stuff back in the front room a while ago, but didn't notice if anything was missing. We went looking for some Wii games yesterday and couldn't find them,. The more we looked, we realized that not only were the games gone, so is the actual Wii console, 2 controllers and charger. We're completely baffled. We didn't let anyone borrow it. It's absolutly random and all we can think is that some of hte workers that were here stole it, although that'd be pretty ballsy and obvious... if we had noticed it 5 months ago lol..Now.. we've got nothing, which really sucks as I spent half of Thankgiving playing Donkey Kong Country Returns at my parent's house and was looking forward to more of the same today.

What else? While I'm disappointed that Jennifer Grey won DWTS (not because of her, but because of my loathsome attitude toward her partner, Derek Hough), I know she deserved it. I don't know if I've ever seen anyone do that well on the show. However, I don't necessarily think it's fair. She did star in one of the most iconic dancing movies ever made. I was pushing for Lacey Schwimmer and Kyle Massey! They were way more entertaining! Although I have to say, all things considered, I didn't think Bristol Palin did too bad in the final. Did she deserve to be there?! I wouldn't go that far, but she could have done a lot worse.

I started reading The Hunger Games trilogy last week and I'm completely breezing through the books. I know they're considered YA (Young Adult) but so is Twilight and me and half the world enjoyed those as well! I highly recommend and i'm only halfway through the second one!

As always, I'll try to be good, but I can't make any promises! Hope you have great holidays!

First they CLOSE the Wendy's in Hudson and now this!? Wendy's... You were always my favorite.. why do you always hurt the ones you love? It's fast food people.. you want nonprocessed food, don't go through a drive-thru!!

I saw Jackass 3D (not in 3D, which I think is overrated) on Friday night and when I didn't want to throw up in my mouth, I laughed my ass off. I also saw The Social Network this past week, which I found to be extremely interesting. Who knew facebook had such a bitter, twisted backstory!?

Yesterday, I learned the allure of a $.10 superfecta, which I missed by one god damn horse in the Breeder's Cup. I don't know where that #6 horse came from but he sure did lose me approximately $100. Bastard....

If I don't get caught at work late on Wednesday (which will now happen since I have something I'm excited about to do), I'm going to my first Zumba class! I've never taken one but I've heard lots of great things about it and I think I'd really like it! I admit, I miss dance quite a bit, so maybe this will be a good substitute. I'll let you know how it works out (IF it works out).

I've been really busy with fall softball, so I haven't had the opportunity to go to the gym I shell out cash for every month. However, tomorrow should change that and I just hope it doesn't fall down when I walk in. My friend wants me to run this "Diva" Half Marathon with her in Long Island next October. As much as I hate running, it is my body's best way to lose weight (of which I need to do.. in spades) and it'll give me something to work towards.. Again.. we'll see how that goes.. Even my ill-fitting clothes haven't been able to motivate me, so we'll see what happens!

I'm excited to see Kathy Griffin tonight at the Palace. If I'm not mistaken, this will be my third time and she cracks me up every single time. Looking forward to that AND dinner at Bombers Burrito Bar.. Disco Fries, here I come!!!

I know I'm a little late, but did we even DISCUSS Project Runway? Hippy Gretchen over Mondo? Really!? Oh Nina and Michael.. what were you thinking? You just KNOW they bullied Simpson into it. Michael probably told her that she DIDN'T look like she as wearing a shiny trash bag that added 20 pounds to her frame... Bad choice.. that outfit did nothing for her body, which is much better than most!

So... you get drunk and give someone your number, yet you have no interest in them whatsoever (maybe it was an ego boost.. who's judging?) Which is worse?

1 - Not responding to any of their attempts to contact you OR

2 - Making up some elaborate, yet semi-believable story as to why you can't date them and apologize profusely for being an idiot.

I went with #2. I'm sorry! I know it might be wrong, but I would hate it if I had met someone and talked to them and then they never responded! For someone people believe may be an ice-cold bitch at times, I really do have feelings and I don't want to necessarily hurt anyone else's (unless they deserve it.. and PLENTY of people deserve it). So yeah.. I hope it works.. My "man" is really pissed that he found texts in my phone and I figured making a new facebook friend wouldn't help our already slightly volatile relationship... Hate me if you want, but I'm not good under pressure!

Congratulations to that "other" orange and black team, the San Francisco Giants, for putting on a great show of athletic ability and in turn, winning the World Series.. I knew I should have busted out Tim Lincecum as my Halloween costume.. if they keep it up, maybe I can concoct an outfit next year.. I'll need stilts... a wig.. and anorexia...

And thanks to Aubrey Huff for.. well.. the rally thong.. I'm a boxers/boxer briefs gal myself.. but I surely wouldn't kick Aubrey out of bed for wearing the rally thong.. While I was bitter when he left, I did always like him as a player and I'm glad that he could contribute so significantly to their win (HR wise.. not thong wise)...

Halloween 2010

I won for scariest costume as Carrie... My sister was a very convincing Lil Wayne, and our friend Kelly was Toad from Mario Kart. It was a fun and entertaining night, in which I was told many times I should have long, blonde hair... I disagree.. I think the blood was clouding their thoughts ;)

Happy Halloween!!!
