There is this family of asparagus - and they are self conscious cause their pee stinks...
We saw ELF yesterday. True I am partial cause I love Will Ferrell. Figgy and I wrote him a fan letter once - hello - how retarded. and he wrote back and enclosed and autograph picture. more retarded. Damn I need to find that thing.

Anyway- the movie was really sweet and hilarious. I laughed out loud only cause the part was perfect for Will Ferrell. He is crazy.

Oh I forgot - how could I??? We saw the Matrix Revolutions two weeks ago - can you believe I didn't go see it on the first day? Something told me I wouldn't like it - it was ok - not great. I still love Keanu but there wasn't much of him in there anyway.

Every other movie coming out looks like crap. There is nothing I want to see.

Oh - something else - we rented Boat Trip - don't ask why. Anyway, when you put the dvd in the player - and you're waiting for the features - hello - there are boobs galore. I looked at the screen and told Kyle - I think we got porn by mistake. Kyle was like - "What are you talking about Blockbuster doesn't have porn." I had no idea. I guess no place has porn anymore. When I worked at the Wherehouse in the 90's we had a big porn section and I always thought it was so disgusting to touch those tapes when those freaks returned them. Huh. I guess I never really thought about it - but yeah - there is no porn section at Blockbuster or Hollywood Video. That's good.

Shop til you drop
Here's my shopping tip of the day - need to buy Christmas gifts but don't wanna stand in line?

is the best place for dvds - they are cheap and offer free shipping AND if you enter the coupon code: USATODAY - you get an extra 20% off. Free shipping and 20% off and you never have to leave your house - how cool is that?

Music to my ears
Day after Thanksgiving sale - is it worth it? I'd say so. Depending on what you're looking for. Kyle and I woke up at 4:30 and headed to the Best Buy - it didn't have the greatest stuff but I did manage to run around and gather up a dvd player for $20 and a few cds for him priced at $7.99, Ludicrous, No Doubt and P.O.D. Pretty good. Worth getting up early? Hmm - not really.

Later in the day I went to Circuit City where every cd was $9.99 I bought Fountains of Wayne, John Mayer and BT. Now that's a good deal. And luck was with me today since I didn't have to stand in line at all. That's the best way of all to shop.

All these cds are being burned to my IPOD as we speak. And I still have the $50 gift certificate for Amoeba that sTIVO gave me for my birfday! But since I bought everything, whatever will I spend it on...

Drinkable turkey?
Jones soda - if you didn't know - is an innovative soda company with odd flavors. I love their pacakaging (of course) due to it's simple design. I hear you can even send them your own picture and they'll put it on a bottle.

To celebrate Thanksgiving they came out with a Turkey and Gravy Flavored Soda. Now that is nasty. Just the description: The first sips bring a mix of sweet caramel and savory lard...

If you're adventurous - you can bid on some on ebay...

Walmart doesn't sell walls...
So the L.A. Times has this series of articles on Walmart and how it's great at slashing prices but it's killing the rest of the world as far as labor laws and running companies out of business right here in America. Just so people can buy a pair of pants for $5. No wonder the rest of the world hates us.

It's a great series of articles - very in depth. The funny thing is I just got this email list of "store specials" - check this out - for day after Thanksgiving - and no wonder people shop at Walmart - damn everything's under $5.

I have never been to a Walmart, there aren't too many in L.A. - if there are they are far away. I don't know if I'd shop there anyway - seems like hicksville - but the rest of the country seems to love it, so who knows. I hear they are going to start expanding into California anyday now with their new giant stores that sell groceries - thus the reason for this whole California grocery strike. My brother has always praised the BIG Kmart cause one day he went and bought a pair of pants and a birthday cake - both at the same time. He thought that was the bomb. Maybe now he'll shop at Walmart.

Chicken & Waffles
Sunday is a great day to eat Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles. Fried chicken and waffles is the best combo ever, you'd never know it! Fighting the church crowd on a Sunday morning can be a hassle - but if you get there early enough you can get a table with a short wait.

Mmm... fried chicken, golden waffle, syrup - delish!

Granted - this review is from the Daily Bruin - usually I am against anything UCLA - but you have to give them some consessions considering the beating they took by SC football this weekend - GO TROJANS!

Bite me
Holy crap do I love root beer. And after drinking a ton of it I suddenly thought - hey - maybe this isn't good for the baby. I drank a bottle of Barq's root beer today - and seeing as how their catch phrase is "Barq's has bite" I thought, oh damn, I wonder if it has caffeine in it.

Come to find they have this new drink called Barq's Floatz!! Awesome. Where can I buy this, I need one now!!!!

Big Head

I just ate a king size bag of Skittles. I think I really may just "taste the rainbow" in the toilet if you know what I mean.

In other news. I went to Urban Outfitters with 30 cent today. Normally I don't shop there since their clothes are made for mostly the "heroin chic" but I was looking around and lo and behold I found a gorgeous black wool fedora. And it fit my giant head! If I ever run across a good looking hat I usually buy it cause it's rare that it will fit.

Course being the "Queen of Returns" as 30 Cent said, I think I'm going to return the hat today. Hats rarely look good on fat preggo women. I'm wavering between keeping it til after but - oh just forget it. I'm over it already.

It's times like these....

I wish I lived in New York. Kate Spade is having their sample sale next week. Bags, bags and more bags for wholesale prices! I would be in heaven.

Course then it would be cold, and my nose would be running, but it would all be worth it. Winter in New York feels so cozy. I especially loved eating the warm nuts from the carts on the street. Not very sanitary I'm sure - but darn good. Ha - I said warm nuts. Suddenly I'm Beavis and Butthead.

Bright lights city, gonna set my soul on fire

Vegas baby. We went this weekend, and for some reason we saw everyone we knew there. That is just the gathering place I guess.

Three card poker was very good to me. I think the baby brought me lots of luck. I got FOUR, I said FOUR, straight flushes. Two of them came back to back!! That paid 40 to 1 - oh yeah.

Money for Christmas, it's a good thing...

Beware the fat man
Ok I think I figured out who's stealing sh*t at work. First of all there is this tiny space at the end of our driveway at work - it's probably only 10'x15' - it's almost like a storage space except I noticed there's a mailbox and a cable dish on the side of it.

First ofa ll - there is this fat man who walks out of there every morn in his janky old pajamas and throws away a bag of trash in the dumpster. Hello?? I hear there's no running water in there so what the heck? And our boss doesn't talk about it. I know the fat man rents that space from us - but what the hell. Our company is retarded.

What if that little storage space actually leads to a secret underground lair a la Dr. Evil in Austin Powers?? That would be funny. Like you go in there and it actually leads down to a huge ass palace with a jacuzzi and sh*t.

Ok -maybe he's not the one stealing stuff, maybe he's actually protecting us? Yeah right....go on with your bad self, fat man.

At work, I always bake for people's birthdays. Usually they ask for something in particular, but for SkoG's bday I wanted to surprise him and make something special. I was going to go for these Ice Cream Brownie bars. The recipe is easy enough, but what the f*ck - it's not working. Sure it's supposed to take 3 days - but I'm a busy woman, I don't have time for that nonsense. So I am trying to do it all in one night. I guess the brownies really do need to set cause they are a bit goopy.

Poop. So I guess I'll just slather on the ice cream and pray for the best. Damn.

steal away

So someone at work is stealing shit - we are missing 3 laptops. First of all why don't they get the keys back from employees who quit, hmmm? That may be the first step towards loss prevention. Hello - idiots

So they call a meeting and make all of us go outside to hear a speech about "being aware". I'm thinking, while we're all out here I bet someone's inside stealing our purses and wallets. Haaaaaaaaaa

These boots were made for walkin'
Due to my ever expanding feet. All my beautiful shoes no longer fit. And my feet are getting tired. Time for some good old fashioned comfort shoes. We went to the "Walking Company" and I tried on some shoes that were comfy - but good lord were they ugly. The salesperson said, "well they aren't for looks." Quite obvious.

Instead I stopped by the Nordstrom anniversary sale and they had a pretty good pair of ECCO's on sale. They were super comfy and I think will do well in the winter weather despite being mules.

The thing is they were a size 8! Yikes - I wear 7 normally - I wonder if my feet will go back to 7's by the time this baby is out? I hope so - or else my whole closet full of shoes will be up on ebay next year....

Have yourself - a Merry little Christmas....
I am a shopping fool. I went to Macy's this weekend and for once Kyle actually agreed to go shopping with me - so I thought I should take advantage of it. They were having a 40% off sale - plus I had a card for an extra 20% all day long - plus I donated $20 - which gives me another 10% on all my purchases from now til January. I know how to pile on the discounts, man.

So we found tons of stuff - tons - at very good prices. I got most of my Christmas shopping done - whohoo!

I can't wait til Christmas, yes it's still early - seeing as we haven't even had turkey yet - but this cold air makes me feel all warm and Christmas-y. I can't wait!

baby, baby
So we started these birthing classes - and the first one kind of freaked me out - but now I'm getting used to them. At least there's only 4 more classes to go.

At the end of every class they show a video of a woman giving birth - that is some nasty sh*t. The women in the class are kind of watching it like, "ugh" - but the men are the funniest cause either they are staring at the ceiling or cringing. It's hilarious.

Honestly - it's so gross, I really don't need to see a woman shove a 10 pound baby out of her a$$. I get it. Really I do.

Heavy weather traffic again
Two things irritate me while I'm in my car - traffic, and having to listen to Sugar Ray. Lately only traffic has been my problem. It's been taking me over 45 minutes to get to work and I only live 10 miles away. Only lately has traffic been this bad. Is it the MTA strike? The rain? Who knows - but I am pissed.

I especially hate those drivers that go like 2 miles an hour down the street - slow enough just so they make it through the yellow light til it turns red and I am stuck there. F*ers. I have to get to work!!!! You notice - this just happened to me this morning.

I also hate looky loos - hello - why do you need to stare at the broken down ford escort on the side of the 405? Who cares - there's nothing to see.

But now I've won. I leave exactly 7 minutes earlier than usual for work and through a series of twists and turns I have managed to cut my drive time to work down from 40 minutes to 20 minutes. It's a sick gratification considering how much I hate being at work anyway - but I feel like I've beaten the system for some reason....

I know kung fu

It's raining. I love it.

The Matrix Revolutions opens in two days. The BEST place to see it is Mann's Chinese - they ahve the best sound system and seating. I can't wait.

If only I could see it at the premiere at the Disney Concert Hall. That would be the bomb.

and in sports....
We spent the evening at a very nice Quinceanera, food fun, and lots of mariachi music. Thereby missing all the Saturday sports on tv.

Although I hate UCLA - how could they lose to a team with a hideous TREE as it's mascot? That's just sad. That tree is pathetic.

USC moves on up - Rose Bowl here we come...

Most importantly we missed the Laker game - you know why they're winning - Derek Fisher's rockin' the headband again. Headband. That's all I'm saying.
