I finished reading Hogfather last night. While checking my email this morning, I discovered that Terry Pratchett has been knighted.

It brought tears to my eyes. But good tears. :)

In deference to anyone who might be chemically sensitive and is coming over tomorrow evening, I've just finished cleaning the bathroom. This way, any scent (chemical, perfume, or otherwise) has a chance to dissipate.

I made something for dinner tonight that was very much a cross between a pasty and a Russian cabbage pie, but vegetarian. When I put two on a plate with a chicken breast, it was all very bland looking, but the pasty was quite tasty. :)

[livejournal.com profile] quingawaga and [livejournal.com profile] zanate popped round to drop off some soap. Yay! Free soap. Now I just have to figure out which one I'll try first. Orange, I think, since it's the Christmas season and all, and I'll always associate oranges with Christmas. :)

I'm also going back and making the attempt to tag all of my previous posts. And yes, I know how batshit insane that makes me sound. It's going to take me some time because it's quite the undertaking, but I never intended to do something of this magnitude in one sitting. This is definitely going to be a long term project, and I fully expect it to take months, if not a year, to finish. Huh...that seems to be a New Year's resolution, ready-made just for me. ;)
Today is the first day of winter and at least it looks like it. In November, because of the early onslaught of snow that was staying on the ground, I had predicted that we wouldn't have a white Christmas. With the exception of Wednesday (which is forecasted to go to a balmy plus 5), it looks like I'll be wrong.

So, earlier today, [livejournal.com profile] fuzzpsych and I went to Bo-De Foods to stock up on a few things. If you've never been, you should go at least once, as it's quite the experience. :)

Bo-De is the land of cheap crap. Most of this cheap crap comes from Dare seconds of the "Thrift" label. Which means that instead of paying $3.29 for a package of Breton crackers, you're only paying 50ยข for what amounts to packaging that might be less than perfect or a few extra broken crackers.

And for less than $16 (including all relevant taxes), we walked out with 6 packages of Simple Pleasures cookies, 2 of Breton crackers, a pack of fig newtons, pfeffernuesse, 10 squares of roman nougat, 6 bags of assorted candy and 12 packs of toaster pastries (with 2 in each).

Walking out, it felt a little like this commercial. But if you ever need cookies or crackers for a crowd (they even have boxes of 12-24 packs for $6!), that's definitely the place to go. :D

I am so cold right now. I think I caught a chill coming home from work and even after a hearty dinner and being in a very warm kitchen, I'm still shivering. Tonight, I think, is going to consist of some baking (coconut sugar cookies) and maybe a movie under a blanket with a hot cup of cocoa.

Without thinking, I poured milk into my tea. Yuck.

Now I have to boil the kettle and make another cup.

And yeah, I know it's likely to be crap. But I'm really not expecting much. :D

I don't normally follow Canadian politics. Aside from elections and scandals, I find it all a bit dull. This past week, I've become more of a news junkie than usual. I have stopped short of a comfy chair and a big bowl of popcorn, but I suspect the best is yet to come and there will still be time for it. ;)

Oh, and another bit about politics, this time regarding the aftermath of the US election, specifically, the marginalizing Proposition 8. Well, Hollywood isn't too pleased with the results, so group of them got together and came up with a 3 minute musical (video is SFW but will require sound).

Aside from the broken heart bit (I've never had one. Yes, I know that's weird), this is pretty accurate. )
Before Grain Cat Food, Chicken.

It's most of a bag, minus the bag (the dry food goes into a bin and the bag goes out for recycling). Franklin just won't eat it, and he'll eat just about any kind of dry. But, our cats are dumb and don't like fancypants meat-based dry food. Or, at least this one. *shrug*

If you want it, respond and it's yours.

Pixlr is an online image editor with a lot of bells and whistles, so there's no download and no software to install.

However, if you can't get online, you can't edit photos. And it does take some time to upload images to be edited.

But it's free.

My cat, Franklin, has a tendency to demand the pettins by any means necessary (head butts, paw pokes, lotsa noise), usually at a time and place where it's inappropriate to do so (I've just crawled into bed and want to sleep, I'm drinking tea, etc). It's very frustrating to try to decide what to wear when the same cat is bumping against your arm, being very insistent that he touch you NOW. And no matter how many times you put him on the bed, he keeps jumping up on the dresser that's beside the closet and demanding the love.

*sigh*

At least dogs are trainable. :P

Going to see Nine Inch Nails tonight at Copps in Hamiltonia.

What an awesome way to end the week!

*bounce*

And a NIN funny with some naughty language.
