Happy Halloween and which of Santa's reindeer am I?

This is perfect for posting on Halloween! Wow, gotta get my holidays straight.

You Are Blitzen

Always in good spirits, you're the reindeer who loves to party down with Santa.

Why You're Naughty: You're always blitzed on Christmas Eve, while flying!

Why You're Nice: You mix up a mean eggnog martini.

Oh yeah, again, Happy Halloween!

Which scary movie are you?

Really? I like this movie.

You Are Jaws

You're scared of what you can't see right in front of you. Your imagination tends to get the better of you.

And for you, something like the deep, dark ocean is obviously pretty terrifying. Who knows what's lurking right next to you?

The idea of trying to get away from something that's after you really gets your heart pumping. Being chased horrifies you.

You're also quite scared of big, hungry animals with no sense of right or wrong. You know a shark will stop at nothing to make you its lunch.

Any day is sex day

Except at my house. How can you have sex with someone you despise? Yes, it's that time of the year, I mean season, I mean month, I mean week. Yeah week. Hubby is an asshole.

If you are tired of reading about this just stop now and go google plain old sex. You will probably get much better hits (though if you are at work, you might not be able to visit those sites - be careful).

Or I could just stop.

Ok. I did.

So today is my Friday. The only bad thing about being off tomorrow is that I have a doctor's appointment to get an EMG. Another test to try and figure out what is wrong with my numbness.

Happy early TGIF!

Straight from the book's pages

I have a recipe for you.....

This came right out of a book that I was reading: Chloe Zhivago's Recipe for Marriage and Mischief. Have you read this book?

It was a little slow at times, but I guess I would give it a B-.

Anyhow, here is the recipe for "Kitty's Vengeful Chocolate Cake". I will have to make this.

For the cake

7 1/2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1/2 pound butter
1 cup superfine granulated sugar
7 eggs, separated
1 scant cup ground almonds

Melt chocolate slowly. Cream butter and sugar. Add egg yolks and ground almonds. Add melted chocolate. Whisk egg whites until quite stiff, then fold into the chocolate mixture. Pour into buttered tin and back for about 45 minutes in the middle of the oven at 350 degrees F.

Now you have to make the chocolate icing.

For the icing

5 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup heavy cream

Melt the chocolate in the top of the double boiler over medium heat. When chocolate is melted and smooth, stir in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and the cream. Whisk until well blended and silky. Pour the icing over the cooled cake, letting it drip down the sides.

Lick the bowl. Yum.

I think I am dying

Or at least my insides are. I have had the most horrific heartburn for the last 30 hours or so. So bad, belching, burping, hurting heartburn in the world.

I have no idea what is causing it. Maybe its the Chantix along with the Dexatrim? I don't think so, I only started the Dexatrim yesterday afternoon.

Seriously, yesterday I chugged Immodium and took Pepto Bismal tablets. Nothing is working.

What is going on here?

I know!

Maybe its part of the smoking withdrawal? Could that possibly be it? (I did slip up and have one cigarette on Friday night)(but that's it, honest).

So what can it be? Help me here!

My son put this up

Left brain or right brain

You Are Right Brained in Love

When it comes to love, you go with your gut not with your head.

You have an open heart. You fall in love easily and get hurt just as easily.

You are spontaneous with relationships. You go with the flow and don't worry about the future.

You are romantic, empathetic, and caring. More than most people, you really love being in love.

Still not doing it

That's right. Pat me on the back. Give me a high five. Congratulate me. Better yet, I do accept charity.

I have not smoked in 9 days. And yes, I am even fighting with my hubby which has always been a trigger to smoke.

I rock!

Anyone else trying to quit?

National Pizza Month

It's October and supposedly, it's National Pizza Month. Why the hell wasn't I told? I love Pizza!

What the heck? Why am I only finding out on the 20th of October? The month is 2/3 over. Seriously, I had to find out through the little ole Express paper.

How rude! You would think something this important would have been broadcast on WTOP, News 4, Fox 5, etc. AND it would've been broadcast at the beginning of the month.

Just for that, I am arbitrarily extending it. So there.

6 days clean!

Yes, clean. From cigarettes. That's pretty damn good, don't you think?

Yes, I am taking Chantix, and it is working. The funny thing is that I haven't told anyone. Not the hubby, not the kids, not the friends, not the co-workers. And no one has noticed?

Not a single person has said anything about it to me. They just aren't noticing that I'm not going outside every hour. That I don't have an ashtray sitting in front of me at the bar. That I am not rolling down my window in the 40 degree temps to smoke in the car.

What the hell!? They are supposed to notice and be proud of me. What the hell?!

Fine, I'll just pat myself on the back. Doing good.

Sydney, Australie

I'll have to go there someday.

Your City is Sydney

You are straightforward, honest, and real. You believe it's important to be yourself, even if you shock people.

You are worldly and well traveled. You have seen a lot in your life, and it's hard to rattle your cage.

You tend to embrace a laid back, "anything goes" attitude. You wouldn't ever think to judge someone.

You believe that it's important to seize the day and live like there's no tomorrow. You can get along with anyone who agrees.

It's lunchtime!

Happy TGIF

Happy, Rainy, Happy, Rainy

I think you got the point. I'm in a good mood and it's raining.

That's okay. I am leaving early from work today (10 mins) because I have a doctor's appointment AND today is my Friday.

What a great combination.

So what do you want to do tonight? My hubby, with whom I've not been getting along as of late, asked me if I wanted to go to dollar bottles with him and his friend. He never thinks to ask anything like that. I think he remembers me laying into him 2 weeks ago for never thinking of me.

And me the bitch, my immediate thought is No, I don't want to go. But he is sticking his neck out for a change and it would probably be in my best interest to accept this olive branch.

Should I go?

F My Life (again) (recurring)

Here we go again, thanks to F My Life"

"Today, I got a text message from a number I didn't know telling me, "Fine. It's over, have a wonderful life." I've never had a girlfriend and now I get broken up with by girls I don't even know. FML."

Have a great Wednesday!

I'm part Witch

You Are 60% Witch

You've got some pretty witchy stuff going on.

Even if you're not a witch, you've got to admit that you're a little freaky.

You have a strong independent streak - social norms be damned. More power to you.

Luckily, the time when you would have been burned at the stake has passed!

I am an Ice Cream Cake

You Are an Ice Cream Cake

Surprising, unique, and high maintenance.

You're one of a kind, and you don't want anyone to forget it.

You're fun in small doses, but it's easy for people to overdose on you!

Eggs for everyone!

Did you know that today is "World Egg Day"? How cool is that? How come an egg gets it's own day?

Does every food item have a day of it's own? Really? Think about that.

Make mine an omelet with ham and extra cheddar cheese. Oh yeah, a side of toast also.

Really random Thursday

I don't know this is going to play out in the long run so I am assuming we will just have to wait and see.

I am good at what I do, when I actually have something to do.

I love the fall temperatures, the fall colors, and the fall clothes.

I hung up on my hubby last night after he started bitching about something stupid. He didn't try to call back. Or couldn't because the first thing he said when I answered the phone was "I'm about to lose all signal." There is no signal on the mountain at hunting camp. So, how nice. A sweet little fight and who knows when I will actually talk to him again. I am supposed to go down to hunting camp on Saturday. If I don't hear from him before that, he is shit-out-of-luck. Boy, will he be pissed.

Random thought: those footsteps are really loud out in the hallway.

It's a 7-11 Diet Pepsi day.

What are you thinking right now?

cheeburger cheeburger

This place has a fantastic reputation and I was told that I absolutely had to eat here. So I did. It was pretty good, nothing to die for, but good.

I think I still like Johnny Rockets and Roy Rogers better. Definitely like the prices better.

How did you know? That's my favorite color!

Your Blog Should Be Purple

You're an expressive, offbeat blogger who tends to write about anything and everything.

You tend to set blogging trends, and you're the most likely to write your own meme or survey.

You are a bit distant though. Your blog is all about you - not what anyone else has to say.

What kind of Writer am I?

You Should Be a Film Writer

You don't just create compelling stories, you see them as clearly as a movie in your mind.

You have a knack for details and dialogue. You can really make a character come to life.

Chances are, you enjoy creating all types of stories. The joy is in the storytelling.

And nothing would please you more than millions of people seeing your story on the big screen!

Really? I think you are full of shit, but maybe I'll try this out one day.

Yeah, right.

Crisp and cool

That's awesome weather and that's what we have today in the metro DC area (technically at the moment I am in NW DC but I am sure at home, Northern Virginia is getting the same weather).

I love this weather. My hair doesn't curl or frizz out, I get to wear my Mickey Mouse sweatshirt, I sleep like a baby, it refreshes me, and my hair doesn't curl or frizz out (that bears repeating because I absolutely hate humidity when I can't do anything with my hair).

Hockey starts tonight, of course, the best team doesn't start their season until tomorrow. Yes, of course, my beloved Pittsburgh Penguins.

Don't be jealous. We can't all be born and raised in the best (real capital) city in Pennsylvania, yes, "the burgh".
