Hodge Podge

I'm trying out a new system where I post here on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday, and over at B.E.'s Writerly Space on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  With Saturdays off.  Sure enough, I almost forgot today here.  (Which isn't surprising since I totally have no idea what day it is most days anyway.)

For some reason, despite the freakin' cold, I have a bunch of itty-bitty baby crickets in my house.  On the upside, they're keeping Kira amused.  She's under my legs as I type this trying to figure out where her latest toy went.  (If they don't move, she loses them in the carpet pattern.)

Hubs and I were talking yesterday about what either of us might want for Christmas, and he started listing all the clothing items he needs.  I was all like 'that's stuff we can get any time we want - we don't need to wait for Christmas'.  So yesterday we hopped in the car and did an impromptu shopping trip.  We still don't know what to get each other for the holiday, but hey, we have new socks and junk.

BTW, every day is special.  Don't wait for the BIG days to do nice stuff for the people you love.  K?

Another thing we did yesterday was buy all the stuff for Thanksgiving dinner.  Turkey, stuffing, rolls, cranberry sauce, the fixin's for pumpkin cheesecake.  (Crap, I forgot the whipped cream.)  It's just the two of us, so we don't really need all that much, but hey, leftovers are awesome, so we go for it.  As always, Hubs is the TGD cook.  I stay the hell out of the kitchen and he presents me with awesome eats.

I don't know if y'all know this, but I'm a big fan of Jeopardy!  Have been for years.  This week is the Tournament of Champions - and they're down to the last three.  I'm rooting for the tall guy.  I used to root for Arthur Chu - when he was on the first time - but then I followed him on Facebook and found out he's a twerp in real life.  I hate when I find out someone I like on TV is a twerp or a jerk or an ass.  Totally ruins them for me.  (Don't get me started on Brett Favre.)

Any hodge podge things going on with you right now? 


  1. I'm anticipating that we'll be doing our TGD usual--cinnamon rolls in the morning, turkey breast (roasted from scratch) for sandwiches, and a pie or two for the "main meal." I'm the only one in the family that likes the full event. Everyone else just wants to go to the eats payoff: turkey sandwiches! Makes for an easy day for me as chief cook and cleaner so s'all good. :)

    I'm down to "I want gift cards--iTunes, Amazon, Starbucks." I have all the material stuff I need but there's always a new book, new song, or coffee that I want. ;)

    1. Your TGD sounds good, Silver. I don't cook, but I've got clean-up duty. Yours sounds way easier. =o)

      I like your gift card idea, too. When you reach 'stable adult' stage, there really isn't anything to want or need that you can't get yourself without waiting for a holiday. Which is why we went shopping. LOL Besides, he's already given me what I really wanted - to have the ball rolling on self-publication. =o)

  2. No hodge. No podge. Just sitting here editing. Well, okay, reading blogs. Then I'll get back to editing. I will!!!

    1. I hope you got back to work yesterday, Stacy. Thanks for stopping to read the blog, though! =o)
