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!
