I think *I* am the only one here. And it's cold!

We are the only ones here together! I am not cold, but I am baking, so the apartment is kinda warm.

Will you bake me something? I would like some chocolate chip cookies. Hot ones.

I am making these orange chocolate cookies:

But they have to be in the fridge until 7:30 until I can continue making them. Boo.

Wanna play keyquest or something?

I haven't been able to get keyquest to work in a long time and firefox randomly closes out on me.

oh, boo. That is annoying. Maybe because of your internet speed?

That might be the keyquest problem, but I don't know what the firefox problem is about. That one is new.

The cookies look yummy!

Did you upgrade Firefox 3? I have no idea if that would be good or bad, though - I'm still using FF2.

Also, I hope the cookies turn out as good as they look. Usually I like to eat the dough as I go, but this dough was not very yummy without being cooked. Hm.

3.0.5 it says.

They sound REALLY yummy. I bet they are good cooked. Orange zest wouldn't be that good on its own, I wouldn't think.

I have no idea if that's the problem or not.

I am hoping they are yummy. Or I am going to be making chocolate covered oranges. Actually, that sounds good, I might do that anyway. YUM.

How come orange?

I am still cold.

Why not?

Blankets and hot chocolate are normally my warming-up tools.

It's not just the internet, EVERYTHING is quiet... I think aliens are about to invade

The only thing on TV is a mythbusters that I've seen before. grrrrrr. Maybe we should be preparing for the alien invasion. Do you think it's the nice aliens or the scary ones?
lordxyyndragon
Dec. 20th, 2008 10:41 pm (UTC)
I think it's the scary ones. War of the Worlds creeped me out man I don't want to go up into one of those big nets :( Please don't come out of the ground, alien tripods!!!

I would download some TV or movies today but damnit I've already received two notifications from Optimum Online telling me to stop downloading copyrighted stuff. Go rent a season of something? Tell Mike to come over and give you a foot massage?
tenthz
Dec. 20th, 2008 10:44 pm (UTC)
Mike has an anti-foot thing, sadly. Also he is at work. Also, I am still mad at him. But I think if he showed up and massaged my feet volunteeraly, that might make me not mad at him anymore.

I'm thinking that even if there was something good on, I wouldn't be interested. That's just the kind of mood I'm in.

So how are things with you? You've been busy with work lately?

I must have missed why you were mad at him though I did assume "I'm just calling to get yelled at" was about someone important to you...
Yeah TV doesn't do anything for ya if you're not in a TV mood. I watched some of the Extras DVD I got Pete for Christmas (it stars Ricky Gervais from the British 'The Office') and that was good but now it's like, eh, no more.
Pete left at noon and he will be in Buffalo until the 29th :( I feel really left out and sad and lonely, even though I was invited, but this is my parents' first year alone without their sons around and the guilt would have killed me. He saw how upset I was and told me he'd come home earlier but I asked him not to and he said "I will anyway". We'll see.
Work has been okay, really busy. Just finished writing my review! Hopefully after the holiday I will sit down with my boss and we will hash it out. I'm feeling pretty confident because I know he really appreciates me and he realizes I work hard, but there are some things I just never got around to finishing. This economy stinks but I'd really, really like a raise. I work an average of about 50 hours a week (I counted) and I think I should get compensated for that :(

How are things with you lately? I know your job stresses you out sometimes too. I guess that's why they call it "going to work" and not "going to ice cream cake"

Yeah, Mike had been remiss in letting me know he's not dead and "forgets" to call me when he says he will. I feel.... taken for granted. It took me too long to figure that out. Gotta talk to him about it, but -haha- that means he has to call me back. :-P

Work is pretty good and we've been strangely not effected by the economy-stuff going on. We've got 2 new projects and hired 2 new employees as well. I'm feeling secure, so I guess that's good. And hopefully I'll get to work on some more exciting new stuff soon.

I figured you were talking about Pete in your post earlier.. :-( You had a hard decision to make, but I think it's probably the right one even if you are lonely now :-/ Good luck at your review and such - 50 hours a week is crazy! That's one reason I'm glad that I'm still a contractor - I get paid hourly + overtime over 40 hours.

I think the most stressful thing right now is KBToys officially closing all their stores and Mike's future of work is pretty much up in the air. :-/

I think guys have a tough time with the concept of "worry" (until they have daughters LOL) because they're taught to look after themselves and take care of their own problems. So are you just in waiting mode right now for a phone call from him? That stinks. I sympathize.

Yeah it was a really hard decision and I have to remember that next year will be our first Christmas together. We will probably be engaged by then, though unlikely married (unless we have a shorter engagement because we both want a fall wedding). So that is a nice thought to look forward to.

I am really envious that you get to do contract work, your hours are all accounted for and you get paid for what you work!! That's awesome. Job security is nice isn't it?? We're not heavily affected by the economy even though I do work for a luxury real estate investments company, thankfully we have some security and aside from having a scaled-down Christmas party this year to save face in front of our investors, we've all still got jobs and that isn't going to change.

I heard about KB, has Mike started to look anywhere else? I know it's not a great time to be looking for a job but maybe a pre-emptive strike is in order no?

Those cookies
I hope they turn out OK. We've had a few raves, I haven't made them myself, so I can't tell you if so-so-ish dough is normal or not.
Good luck,

Re: Those cookies
Heather, I finished making them tonight and they did turn out pretty good! They aren't really strong, but they are mighty tasty. And some how, I yielded more than 13 dozen! But then, I tend to make smaller cookies.

I'm here now! Just got back from shopping.

Had to make sure Santa bought the right stuff. Apparently Santa didn't know he was supposed to buy the Beedlebard book!

You missed me didn't you? ;-p

I talked to Josh for over 2 hours today. :-O Then I went to the gym and in search of a digital photo frame, which I didn't get, in the snow. And I bought bananas.

I was out shopping earlier. Got Destiny her first gifts: a My Little Pony (of course LOL), and an adorable Dora cellphone since she's always playing with CJ's phone. Also got some gifts for my friends, and very happily visited the recently opened Baskin Robbins. I'm going to post a picture soon...working on finishing painting my kitchen so I can post pictures of that too :)
