A Very Caliente Christmas

Tonight Ray and I are going to Nada to celebrate a few days off the Christmas spirit, because nothing says Merry Christmas like salsa and chips.

Feliz Navidad!

We also plan to look wintry but cozy, bundled up in colorful scarves and holiday sweaters while we stroll hand-in-hand and watch ice skaters and stare wishfully at the sparkling lights on the giant Macy's Christmas tree. I plan to live-tweet our adorableness.

Just kidding. I rarely tweet.

Then it's time to pounce into all that papery goodness. I'm excited to go out and buy myself whatever I didn't get, like this gorgeous necklace.

Merry Christmas, everyone.

Sugar Plums, It's Almost Christmas!

It's almost Christmas, you guys, which means something very exciting is coming up - an end to xmas music on the radio. Hooray! Merry Christmas, y'all!

Forced happiness. Unholy music. Inflatable lawn ornaments.* High calorie, low taste snacks. What's not to love?!

In spite of all that is reasonable and holy and sane, I am looking forward to the festivities this year. Ok, mostly I'm looking forward to the sides - stuffing, noodles, mashed potatoes, cooked carrots, sugar plums, wine.

Plus, I've been really good this year, so I'm sure that Santa's plan is to bury me in awesome gifts and holiday cheer.

Six days, people!

* I DO love inflatable lawn penguins. And this snowman. Is there an app that will map all of these things or something?

Party Like A Rock Star

The squared bottom red cups I brought to the lab holiday party today were a HUGE success. Everyone drank from them.

Initially I signed up to bring water from the bathroom to go along with all the snacks and treats other people were bringing, but these cups were pure holiday joy.

If you're having a party - holiday, dinner, birthday, what have you - consider inviting me. I bring my a-game.

Jack, Call Me

I can't get this song out of my head. So now you all have to deal with it. And by deal with it I mean scoop up the goo of your melted off face cause it's so awesome.

I could have also posted Iesha. (On the MONKEYBAAARS!) So, yeah.
