1 more sleep till KFC day!


It's been a week of ups and Downs and this and that but I finally finished off my Christmas shopping Christmas eve at 5:30 PM. Yup, right down to the wire.

We spent a very lazy day, just doing nothing. Gord never does 'nothing', but today I think he even enjoyed hanging around the house, having naps, playing with the dog, and watching "Orange County Choppers," unending Christmas edition. Hey, he likes it, so let him. I, however was doing this:

Gord got me a brand new Samsung SPH-a900 Cell phone. I HAVE A CELL PHONE!..Balonie has finally ventured into 2000. It has Internet access, email, voice mail, assmail, any kind of mail you want to send without a postman being present. It has a camera, which will come in handy for those unexpected pictures, you know the kind, when your friend goes to the can, and you pop that baby under the door and get a picture of her cootie. It doesn't get any better than that. Actually, my main aim is to use it at Safeway. I will saddle up to an annoying cell phone user in the store, who is calling to see if they need organic carrots. Then, I will call Gord, and very loudly ask, "are we out of condoms"!... "I'm in Safeway luv", doing some shopping, and you know, better safe than sorry." Then, wait for his reply, and be so amazed that he has heard of a new brand that was "organic." "It's made of carrots and lettuce with just a tad of organic Glad Wrap in it," "I will exclaim very loudly". Hey, I'm all for Glad Wrap..heh. It's pay back time. Every time someone is on the phone beside me, I will do them one better!! I might not phone Gord each time, because that could be annoying, but I think I will phone home and let my answering machine pick up my nuisance calls.

I also got and very nice bag for my Laptop. Gord had a bit of a time finding one big enough for a 17", but he managed.

I am so lucky. I got my toys and boy.

We spent a very relaxing evening in front of the fireplace, sipping some wine and rum, along with some Christmas goodies. Later I made deep fried shrimp, along with a beef and broccoli stir fry with rice. It was very good. And of course Maple Walnut Ice Cream for dessert.

I took Penny Loafer out for a walk this afternoon, because Christmas day is the only day of the year there are no other dogs out walking. So, that means no one gets hurt. I put on her little black coat, and her Santa Cap. was funny, all the people on the street were just laughing, she was soooo cute. She kept the hat on throughout the entire walk, I thought she was going to try to take it off, but, no...she was so excited about the walk she kept it on. But, by the time we got home, she was pissed off at it, and I couldn't get her to come back up the stairs to the family room.

"I hate you"

I'm not coming back up..I'm going to shrink into a tiny ball, unless you take this fucking crap off of me!

I told you, I'm not coming up!!

Geez, finally I had to go down and undress her. I bought her a new puppy bed for Christmas and she wouldn't use it all day, but now I see she is sprawled out on it.

So, tomorrow is "KFC" day here at Casa Martinque. I haven't done shit all day, so I'll have to get into family mode tomorrow. I hope they like dog hair in the mix, because my vac belt went "kaping" this afternoon.

I got all the appetizers etc. ready, and after that it's all up to Cornal Saunders.

Bring it on.

A scary picture of my tree, before I burnt the house down while we were have organic sex in front of the fireplace.

I hope everyone has the best Christmas, and I would like to thank you for commenting on my blog (and for some who have even given me a ring)and being such good friends. It means a lot to me.

And to Brian, who I really admire. Man, you are a good shit. Especially putting up with me. And that's as good as it gets with this cynical soul.

Merry Christmas...balonie..over and out.

Penny looks so cute. My dog Jinx was so good-natured, but boy, she hated her Santa hat. I think the chin strap was too tight, which would make me cranky, too.

I cannot spell cournol. Spell check didn't get it, and I can't find it in dictionary, because...well I can't spell the damn thing. I should have just written Kernel..heh.

JUST A MOM said...

Hey you way over there Merry Christmas to ya I know I am a day late.... sorry.

Joan said...

Elllen, Penny was so cute, and she couldn't shake the hat because it fit around her ears and her chin!

Andie, yes it was a very peaceful evening.

Brenda, glad I made ya laugh.. and you are welcome.


I'll keep that in mind the next time I have to type THAT word.

And Merry Christmas and a Happy New year to you too sweetie.

Colonel, Kernel, wtf! I hate that shit! Some one was obviously too ghetto to be able to spell out a word the way it sounds!! Why do they spell it like that??? urg... By the way, the ghetto mamma has quit smoking, so don't mind my bitchiness!
Merry Xmas Joan! Now me wants some KFC!
