Last One For Holidailies Posted on Dec 31, 2:12 am
I am so ready for this year to be over except Im afraid well be looking back on this within oh, the end of January thinking that 2016 was the last good year and the word dumpster fire will look quaint next to something like nukes.


The Last Same New Year's Meme? Posted on Dec 31, 2:12 am
Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

YOU FLOCKED MY NOBLE?!


Bleah, Money Posted on Dec 29, 12:12 pm
I am kind of sick of shopping at this point, especially giving the impending bill thing.


RIP Carrie Fisher Posted on Dec 28, 1:12 am
Thats it. Next years ugly Christmas sweater is gonna be a Princess Leia one.


The Price Of 12 Gifts Posted on Dec 27, 12:12 pm
Moral of the story: KIDS, THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR ENTIRE INHERITANCE.


Christmas Day White Elephant Posted on Dec 26, 3:12 pm
then had it stolen from me by a 4-year-old girl and that was adorable), I did feel sorry for who ended up with my pig shooter, and the people who were grumbly about the movies they ended up with, because it was pretty obvious they were all DO NOT LIKEY SOMEONE STEAL IT FROM ME PLEEEEEASE in their souls


Christmas Eve Hallmark Posted on Dec 25, 10:12 am
I managed to talk her into buying like $99 worth of mostly booze at BevMo, I still dont know how I did that.


Festivus Eve Posted on Dec 25, 1:12 am
This years theme was a gingerbread factory, done very well. I showed Deacon Dave a picture of my light up Christmas apron (had I but known we were going there, I would have worn it over) and he said that would have added to the light count this year.


Some Slight Job Movement Posted on Dec 23, 12:12 pm
I also got called for a job interview in January (time TBD), which I was certainly not expecting at this point!


Yule Bonfire Posted on Dec 22, 5:12 pm
We had some interesting discussions on power and leadership (words that make me shudder, basically), taking risks, fear, etc.


Bridget Walk Posted on Dec 22, 5:12 pm
She has a pathway in her backyard with an arch in it and had us walk around this path seven times while contemplating. In my case, contemplating life purpose and job angst, etc.


First Day in Santa Cruz Posted on Dec 21, 2:12 am
We went to the beach in Davenport with her dog and let the dog run around and have some fun, picked up some seashells, sea glass, and rocks with natural holes in them.


Dickens Fair, Year Three Posted on Dec 19, 3:12 pm
after arriving at the fair, I went into a bonnet store, and of all things, fell in love with a bonnet. Yeah, I know. Seriously, a bonnet?


Musical Improv Performance: I Have To Have Some Kind Of Oral Fixation. Posted on Dec 19, 3:12 pm
The dude was all, let me finish, she lost all her clothes WORTH LOOKING AT.


Placeholder Packing Entry Posted on Dec 17, 12:12 pm
Packing for 2+ weeks of being gone, and I have to pack bulky warm sweaters that fill up the suitcase instantly and all my bags are beyond FULL, and that's going to be an issue if I try to take public transport.


Musical Improv Week 5: She Said Sausage, Let's Do It! Posted on Dec 17, 12:12 am
It ended with Lincoln saying, I dont know how to heighten after eating placenta. You dont want to know.


The Verdict Posted on Dec 15, 11:12 pm
I am seriously considering putting up an ad on Craigslist along the lines of "Eliza Doolittle seeks Henry Higgins to rehab voice,"


Verdict Tomorrow Posted on Dec 14, 10:12 pm
Would that it was always like this, because days like this make me reconsider a lot of things. Until the next snake bite, that is.


Those Gift Swapping Games Posted on Dec 13, 8:12 pm
However, when the last guy to go opened the last gift and it was THE HAMILTON MIXTAPE...STEAL!


Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer: The TV Review Posted on Dec 13, 10:12 am
Do we have to, Your Honor? Good question, do we have to? In the name of justice, we eat fruitcake.


December Thanksgiving Posted on Dec 13, 12:12 am
I just wanted to put it out there that sometimes people can really, really come through for you in the event of disaster.


Watching Hamilton Posted on Dec 12, 8:12 am
Im not used to hearing laughing during certain lines, such as You punched the bursar?


Musical Improv Week 4: Traffic and Glitter Posted on Dec 11, 11:12 pm
thats why Saving Private Ryan was all about Doritos.


Opera and Hooters Posted on Dec 11, 5:12 pm
if you were really mad, I wouldn't tell you, we'd just all be complaining behind your back. That was my favorite part of the show right there.


Reunited With Meg Posted on Dec 10, 2:12 am
If this is going to be my last Christmas in this office (probably), might as well go out in a bling, eh?


So, That Happened.... Posted on Dec 9, 9:12 am
Anyway, I finally found out what I did on Thursday and heres the kicker, folks: for once I didnt do it.


Tour de Craft Posted on Dec 5, 12:12 am
I hit the library for (a) the $5/bag booksale, and (b) actually getting 14 library books, followed by (c) hitting the town bookstore BECAUSE CLEARLY I JUST DONT HAVE ENOUGH BOOKS OR ANYTHING.


Strange Magic Posted on Dec 4, 12:12 am
Dear cloak: I love you, please be my friend forever.


Craft Exchange Party Posted on Dec 3, 1:12 am
Because no sooner do I clear my schedule then I start cramming it up again, yall.


Musical Improv Week 3: We Had A Really Good Moment When I Poked You! Posted on Dec 2, 10:12 am
Ohhhhh crap, this means Im gonna have to play Bruce Willis.

I AM FINALLY OUT OF PUBLIC SERVICE AND ANSWERING PHONES FOREVER AND EVER as of October THANK GAWD ALMIGHTY AMEN HUZZAH.


Two Extra Days Of Vacation Posted on Jan 3, 11:01 pm
I just love that New Year's was on a Thursday/Friday so that I had the weekend. It was glorious to have a whopping eleven days.


Joy Posted on Jan 1, 10:01 pm
"If you had to shoot a business rival, would you?" (Whaaaat?)


Half These Answers Are All The Same Posted on Dec 31, 8:12 pm
Quote a song lyric that sums up your year: “Geniuses, lower your voices. You keep out of trouble and you double your choices.”


Three Light Shows Posted on Dec 31, 2:12 am
A snowman that periodically goes off making noise about keeping you company...in the bathroom. I asked him about this later and he said, “BLASPHEMY!” One of the volunteers brought it in and kept moving it around... like in the fridge....


Hallmark Movie Reviews: 12 Days Of Crafts Edition Posted on Dec 29, 11:12 pm
Maggie’s article, “Confessions of a Secret Admirer” in which she explains the whole story, breaks every journalistic rule in the book. But hey, subscriptions are up and so is Twitter!


Hallmark Movie Reviews: Royalty Edition Posted on Dec 29, 1:12 am
“I’m more likely to marry Santa Claus than your father.”


Hallmark Movie Reviews: Merry Pre-Matrimony Movies Posted on Dec 27, 11:12 pm
Dylan drinks Bloody Mary’s behind them and cheerfully watches storm coverage. “How come you’re the only guy in here watching the weather report with a big smile on your face?” Dylan considers this weather a “get out of Christmas free card,” that’s why.


Winchester Mystery House Christmas Tour Posted on Dec 27, 2:12 am
They had lights and drinks, an amazing balloon artist, and on the hour they have actual snow machines going for a few minutes. Fun stuff for Californians--also the tour guide got to be all, "I can bet it's going to snow right...about... now..." come 8 p.m.


Housesitting Christmas Posted on Dec 25, 8:12 pm
As for Christmas Day, we stayed up till 1 a.m. watching the Hallmark Channel, and then when we woke up, we continued to watch the Hallmark Channel.


The Lion In Winter Posted on Dec 24, 4:12 pm
On the other hand, there’s a lot of eavesdropping behind curtains, scheming with the king of France, declarations of treason, attempted murders, people getting thrown into the basement jail and romantic betrayal. Happy holidays, y’all!


A Star Wars For The Rest Of Us Posted on Dec 24, 1:12 am
I wore my Festivus shirt today, but wore it over my humping reindeer sweater...and then went around pulling up the shirt and flashing humping reindeer at my coworkers.


Humping Reindeer Sweater Posted on Dec 23, 12:12 am
And yet wearing a sweater with a dead woman on it is acceptable at work, Jennifer? Well, odds are people can’t figure out she’s dead, but everyone can figure out humping reindeer…


Dreich Day Posted on Dec 21, 10:12 pm
Anyway, it’s the darkest day of the year and soaking wet to boot and I am cranky pants and I was all excited that my Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer sweater got here in time...and they sent me the wrong one. WHINEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.


The Nutcracker Posted on Dec 20, 11:12 pm
“Huh, I didn’t remember that that Tammy’s kids have the same name as my cousin Tammy’s kids....that’s a weird coincidence...” You get where this was going, right?


Dickens Fair 2 Posted on Dec 20, 11:12 pm
Have you heard of a jackalope circus? No. Why not? Turned out to be a terrible idea--the jackalopes ran each other through with their horns on the trapeze and in the clown car, and during the lion taming act, caused the lion to vomit.


Hallmark Movie Review: Ice Sculpture Christmas Posted on Dec 18, 6:12 pm
AND THEN THEY BREAK THE SCULPTURE BY DOING A HIGH FIVE OVER IT. Participant trophies for all! “If it had been a Venus de Milo contest, we would have had a shot.”


Oops! I Made A Mistake! Posted on Dec 17, 11:12 pm
Let's say that oh, 12 to 50 to 100 times in a day, someone comes over, throws up in my bed, goes, "Oops! I made a mistake! Can you fix it?" and skips away.


Hallmark Movie Review: Let It Snow Posted on Dec 16, 11:12 pm
FIRED AT CHRISTMAS AGAIN. BY YOUR OWN FATHER. THAT IS OFFICIALLY THE COLDEST FIRING IN HALLMARK.


Angry Bird Posted on Dec 15, 11:12 pm
Really, the best moves in this game are stealing something you want from someone who doesn’t want it, and hopefully nobody else wants it either! Plus you don't feel like an asshole!


Holiday Bling Season Posted on Dec 15, 1:12 am
And finally, I have been eyeing this Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer sweater (THIS EXISTS!!!!!!!)...


Reduced Shakespeare Company Christmas Show Posted on Dec 13, 5:12 pm
They are not kidding when they say “commercialization saved Christmas.”


Last Minute Gift Making Posted on Dec 13, 1:12 am
While looking through my jewelry stash, I found the supplies I’d bought for this cross stitch and then was all LAST MINUTE PRESENT MAKING TIIIIIIIIIIIIIIME.


Daddy Long Legs Posted on Dec 11, 11:12 pm
Anyway, I couldn’t help but wonder how the hell this was going to work as a musical. It’s a one-sided epistolary novel, so how would you do it?


Get Aboard The Hamiltrain Posted on Dec 10, 7:12 pm
Seriously, I kinda can't think about anything else other than Hamilton, and a lot of other people are having the same problem. (P.S. http://www.daddylonglegsmusical.com streams live tonight!)


Making The Wrong Choices Posted on Dec 10, 12:12 am
I made my decisions in the best way I could at the time with VERY partial information, and yet they all turned out to be wrong.


The Idiot Tax Posted on Dec 8, 9:12 pm
I told my apartment manager that given how the day’s going, I am just going to stay in my apartment, not do anything, and DRINK.


Mouse-Con and Sarah Vowell Posted on Dec 8, 12:12 am
“If you’re ever gonna write a Garfield chapter, you’re gonna have to pump up some flava.”


The Chasm of Doubt Posted on Dec 6, 10:12 pm
This is probably all because plots boil down to “problem, solve it! or fail at it and problem gets worse! repeat until finally solved!” and I suck at problem solving in real life.


Craft Fair Report Roundup Posted on Dec 5, 11:12 pm
But seriously, Goodwill. OMG. Literally, these are THE ugliest, genuinely ugliest, sweaters I’ve ever seen. As in, “I just sewed a random bow and some holly twig onto a sweater” level of amazing crap.


To Apply Or Not To Apply Posted on Dec 4, 11:12 pm
I'm going to regret not applying for it, but I think I'll end up regretting applying for it when I don't get it even more.


December 2015 FAQ Posted on Dec 4, 1:12 am
My life is as it is and probably isn't going to drastically change.


Newfangled Teapot Making Posted on Dec 2, 10:12 pm
A Daveed Diggs-style "whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat" just went through my head at that.


Memorial Service Posted on Dec 1, 12:12 am
I don't even know what to make of cheerful people dying right now.
