Friday random list thing

1. I am making cookies for my nearest and dearest for the holidays this year. To that end, I went to Costco today to get certain supplies in bulk. A 72-oz bag of chocolate chips is a very sexy thing. I have a list of about 15 different things I’m planning to make – we’ll see how many I get through before I am thoroughly sick of baking.

2. The sun seems to have gone on vacation. I am not amused.

3. WTF, HBO? You have the rights and releases to so many movies, yet you persist in showing the absolutely sub-par ones OVER AND OVER. Why not some mediocre movies once in a while? And what the hell is up with your On-Demand? It sucks almost as much as the regular channels do.

4. I am in the mood for sushi.

5. I have finally figured out knitting with double-pointed needles. Yeah, I know it’s not exactly a professional-level skill, but it was frustrating me to the point that I was perfectly happy making other stuff. Until I discovered mittens. Oh, the mittens. I am in love with knitting mittens. I am told they are the gateway project to socks, an addiction to which has affected many a knitter before me. I am reluctant to hit the socks, but… I do have some self-striping sock yarn in the stash, so maybe I’ll give them a try.

6. I need another bookcase. We rearranged the living room furniture when we re-acquired a second small bookcase, but now there is a giant pile of books that need a home and the remaining large bookcase just can’t hold them all. I suppose I could get rid of some books, but I did that when we moved and I just don’t think I can cull the herd any more.

7. I could really use a beer or seven.

8. Facebook cracks me up on a near-hourly basis. People from my past turn up in the most unexpected of places.

9. NaNoWriMo is a no-go again this year. Who picked November for this, anyway? The one month out of the year when I have crap to do – why not January when the weather is extra-shitty and nobody goes anywhere or does anything because they’re paying off their holiday debt (or not, as the case may be)?

10. Did you know that the producers of “The Brady Bunch” originally considered Gene Hackman for the role of Mr. Brady? Can you imagine what our world would be like if that had happened?

11. We haven’t talked about my boobs in awhile, have we? I had a whole post planned out about that very subject but I haven’t gotten around to writing it yet. It’s thrilling stuff, I tell you. But then again, it’s about my boobs, so why wouldn’t it be?

12. I have to start researching types of dogs since we’re thinking about getting one next spring.

  1. Out of all those things you’ve listed, I’m fixated on the notion of you getting a dog. I’m so jealous. No fair, no fair, no fair.

    Also (I could have emailed you about this), am I right in remembering that you wanted One Man Clapping? I found two of my three One Man Clapping disks. Only thing is, I don’t know what kind of shape they’re in. Did you want me to upload them or something?
