{November 23, 2008}   I’ve done 22 days!!!

It’s Sunday morning and I have a great chance to do a NaBloPoMo post, what great luck!

Wait, I have nothing to say.  Seriously.  Nothing.  I’m actually still mainly asleep.

I hope to edit this later today.

{November 22, 2008}   ouch

Type the words “baby wrist” into google and before you get to a plethora of baby wrist rattles you get three references to a Grand Rounds paper on maternal overuse of wrists.  Guess which one of those I care about?

Was feeling grouchy last night and went on the hunt to buy some pants that fit.  I found a completely cute and over the top baby Christmas dress along with them.  I think it is a good thing that I have a friend who has a baby girl or else JC would have a tough time explaining some of his baby photos!!!  I took it to my friends house and the little girl wanted to put it on right away … at which point I noticed that some of the ribbons look a lot like … well… stripper t!tty tassles.  Oops.

{November 20, 2008}   From James Bond Weekend

The new James Bondwas awful.  Amazingly, head-shakingly bad.  Less nauseating than the Borne movies, but no story and no skin just 3 minutes of talking and then another action sequence.  Daniel Craig‘s stunt guy is good at running on ledges so he did that a lot.  The characters all had color names Mr. White, Mr. Green which could have been like Reservoir Dogsbut instead felt like Clue.  I was just waiting for Miss Scarlet to show up in the library with a candlestick.  ARGH.  I’ve been looking forward to this movie since they rolled the credits on the last one, but I kept in mind that Bond is not normally a good piece of film making but a fun way to kill a couple of hours.  Alas.  Not this time.

{November 20, 2008}   Should have …

What I should have told you about on Monday was my kick-butt cooking moment.  I got home with 50 minutes before Mister and JC would get home.  So I got down to business:

Cut/chop 2 zucchini, a package of mushrooms, and an onion.  Get out 2 pie crusts, 2 cans of garbanzo bean, a can of black beans, a can of refried black beans, 2 bags of frozen veggies, some fresh spinach, flour, veggie stock, tortillas, and a couple secret ingredients.  In 50 minutes I had 2 vegan pot pies and enough vegan burritos to make a couple of meals.


Heck, I even cleaned up some.  :)

{November 18, 2008}   Phooey

I really did post that last {useless} post on the 17th, but I have never bothered to fix the time stamp on this blog so it showed up on the 18th.  I am dissapointed, but I know that I am sticking to my NaBloPoMo commitment to myself {even if I did it this time by waking up just before midnight}.

{November 18, 2008}   just in time

It doesn’t say anything, but at least I posted.
