erm…things have been a bit on the crazy side, as they’re wont to do during the holidaze. today i went to brunch with kate and jenn (per usual for sunday) at melt. this is the second sunday that i’ve been back since i returned to the states, and also the second sunday that i’ve had my brunch at melt. i have to tell you, i really really missed it. a lot. i think it’s very possible that they put some sort of addictive drug in their food. like chipotle. i mean, not that melt puts chipotle in their food, but that…ahh fuck it.
after that, and then doing some christmas shopping down in the gateway quarter of downtown cincinnati (buy local!) for christmas pressies, kate and jenn and i headed over to the know theatre to see “a very merry unauthorized children’s scientology pageant,” which was pretty much amazing. i learned a lot about l. ron and xenu at that little musical. plus, i laughed a lot. always a plus.
when i got home, my sister had plans for us to make christmas cookies. FBIL (future bro-in-law) had plans to make some mixed adult beverages. there are a few possible outcomes for mixing christmas cookie-making with alcohol. i don’t think that any of them turn out well. i may or may not have had a drink (or two) (or three):
and of course, when you’ve had a few, you have a tendency to think that you are THE BEST at whatever it is you happen to be doing at the time. in my case, it was decorating cookies:
this was my wonderful (heh) flamenco dancer. her icing at the top of her flamenco pants is a little flat….it’s entirely possible that i was holding her up to show my sister and FBIL and her right hand broke off and she fell on my lap, icing down, of course. also, she has evil eyes. and cleaveage. as flamenco dancers do.
OH! and i also managed to make some gay pride gingerbread christmas cookies for my friends (whom i am cat/house-sitting for over christmas):
sirrusly, who ever gets gay pride gingerbread christmas cookies??? my friends, that’s who!!!
in other news, i will (most likely) officially be an employee of…someone…tomorrow. i filled out an application. i’m still not quite sure if i’m working for FBIL, or FBIL’s employer. but i’m pretty sure that i’ll be working for FBIL’s employer. trying to get some sort of schedule worked out after not having one for almost 5 months will be interesting, to say the least. but it will definitely be nice to have some sort of income again. you know, to keep the people from coming and breaking my kneecaps and stuff.
ooh! food’s ready! gotta jet. foooooodddd…..
