Let's Kick It Up A Notch...Bam!

Here comes Christmas...

Your Christmas is Most Like: A Very Brady Christmas

For you, it's all about sharing times with family.
Even if you all get a bit cheesy at times.

I'm grateful for tear ducts that are so willing to kick it into high gear at any show of emotion.
For decisions, and decision making. My family.

Deep Breathing

And now for something really different. OK so maybe it's not that different. Maybe I just wanted to get my research assistant off the top of the screen. Since he was creeping out all the children.

I find myself getting more easily stressed out these days, as daylight decreases, workload increases, and being faced with ever expanding social obligations I rarely seem to find a free minute let alone twenty. This afternoon though I am dedicating at least twenty minutes to destressing through the use of deep breathing and visualizations.

Don't call me I won't answer.

Would you if this was where you saw yourself? I didn't think so. Feel free to join me if you want, but if you do don't talk. This is a private beach where that is the only rule, no words.

I know it sounds hokey, but honestly it works. A cheap cd from the bullseye with those random mixes of music right by the card know which one I'm talking about. That, a mostly dark room, no interruptions, and slow steady deep breathing. Let's wash that stress away in the ocean tide you hear in the back ground. My rock hard knots in my shoulders are already melting away.

Back in twenty an hour.

The Day That Christmas Came To Town

OK so I know Thanksgiving hasn't even passed, but I love Christmas music. With that in mind I am slapping up a new playlist of holiday influence. Some are silly, some are poignant, and some are just plain weird. If you're already sick of it then keep the negativity to yourself. I might change out the list a couple times before Christmas season is official, but there are no promises. I hope you will at least peruse the list. If you have any positive suggestions for playlist additions please let me know. If not then you can just go ahead and...

like a stocking.

So You Think You Can Dance?

Does anyone remember Big Sexy? I'm pretty sure this video was based off of his audish on the show. The main character in the video even looks like this guy.

Heaven or Hell? I'm about to find out! Tonight I, along with my five roommates, are hosting a house warming party. I put myself first which is rude and improper English, but most of the people in attendance will be there by my invitation, so I figured it's ok this once.

Turns out the idea was that L who's parents own the house, was thinking somewhere around 20-25 guests. Turns out it will probably be somewhere around 50-60. People love me. What can I say? OK so it's probably less about me and more about the promise of free food. As almost all parties are...What's in it for me? hehe

So the problem is we were going to BBQ. One minor problem. No grill. Hot dog buffet! We've got boiled, baked, and fried take your pick! OK scratch boiled. Fried would take waaay too long to cook for that many people. Anyone have any good suggestions as to how to cook the dogs? I'm open to most anything that's not too nasty or doesn't require more $$

True To My Word

After reading GM's blog this morning, I felt compelled to add a BWO. Consider this my "tramp stamp" if you will....only not so permanent, and a lot less trampy than stampy ;)

Here's some food for thought while you ponder:

Why would someone who has the goal for temple marriage and is fully capable of having one, opt to elope to Vegas for a secular marriage?

OK allow me to expound on this...Soooo my friend is retarded! She eloped to Vegas about two weeks ago and didn't get married in the temple. She said it was because they had a lot going on and it was the best for now. My thoughts were "Best for who? & From what or who's perspective?"

My impression is that there are other underlying reasons like perhaps she didn't hold strong to her convictions. No not saying sex before marriage or anything like that, but I know this is not a choice she would have made if it were really up to her. I feel like she's probably gonna end up divorced.

I know it's such a pessimistic view, but I really will be surprised if they stay together. I don't know how long it will last and I hope it lasts forever and that they do make it to the temple, but I can't deny the impression that I get is that's probably not the best way to start a keeping it secret from your family for a week after the fact. Now that I think about it a lot of their relationship has been riddled with deceptions of sorts.

I know not everyone has family they feel close to, but honestly that's what marriage is about is family so why wouldn't you want yours to be there?
