Is There Anybody Out There?

Hi there! I thought I’d drop a quick note to let you know I am still alive. Cause y’all are beside yourselves with worry over my whereabouts, right? RIGHT?!?!

I hate teenage girls. Except my own. The rest of them are hateful little drama queen’s intent on absorbing all of the attention in a kilometre radius like a black fucking hole. Casualties be damned.

My head is apparently attempting to mutiny. I would happily oblige by decapitating myself to end the pain but I’m afraid that may be detrimental to the health of my body and mind. They seem to be terribly co-dependent. Who am I to separate them? Though my head is threatening what seems an infinite migraine.

I am nearly done my Christmas shopping but for the boy. It’s the same thing every year. I have the wickedest time buying for him. Is it because he’s easy to please or because he already has so much? A little of both really. Other than that? Stocking stuffers; which are a cake walk. Buy 10 lbs of chocolate and divide it between 4 stockings and by December 31st we have all gained 10 lbs. Do not question the math, you know it to be accurate, you have witnessed this phenomenon personally. The question of stuffers becomes a smidgen more difficult if I am required to put anymore thought into them.

I read Coraline this weekend between bouts of debilitating pain. It’s a book! Whodda thunk it? Review to follow.

I watched Inglorious Basterds on the weekend. Brace yourself because I am about to make a very bold statement I know many of you will not agree with. Are you ready? Quentin Tarantino is a genius. I adore him. Yes, it was that good. A tad gory for my tastes (not constant, but definitely copious when it was), but the dialogue was fantastic. I would have watched The Hangover as well but (and this will come as no surprise to many of you), I fell asleep. Oh yes! A party animal am I. I find myself hard pressed to stay awake past Midnight these days.


  1. Oooohhh, a quickie! Ha! Can't wait to see Basterds, just watched The Hangover last night, and actually laughed out loud several times.

    Keep on keepin' on, we're all still here, just preoccupied with holiday stuffs, so don't stress the late/absent post peoples, we're just lazy (i.e. to drunk to type).

  2. Eyvi Sprite!!! We have missed you so! Glad to have you back..
    Teenage girls...ugh...throw them a cell phone with unlimited text and watch your migraine disappear... :)
    Loved the Hangover (pleasantly surprised) and cannot wait to see Basterds...I too LOVE the Tarantino!! Rest assured, you are not the only one who has turned into a one movie a night kinda gal....

  3. Coraline, a book? I've neither read nor seen. Look forward to the review.
    Merry Christmas.
