Lord, I was born a ramblin' (wo)man

Warning: No coherence contained within this post

********************************

The holidays were very nice. I needed a break. I could use another one. My project just will not end. I say that even though the final phase is due to roll out this week. Because of course it's not the final final phase, because of course I still have about 30 open items that have to be addressed before we can call the thing done. There will be celebrating when it's done. Party at my house! Everyone's invited! I'm safe saying that, because this project will not end.

*********************************

It's the time of year when all the radio stations play Christmas music, which means it's the time of year when I complain about the Christmas music all the radio stations are playing. These are carols, people - no need or reason to rearrange them into something a third-rate Vegas lounge singer would be ashamed to sing. Thankfully, I'm now listening to Celtic Woman Christmas on PBS, or your eyes would be flattened with the force of my fierce rantiness.

*********************************

Speaking of television, my inner girly geek is brimming with happiness, because Chuck has been picked up for a full season. Which means nine more episodes of Geeky Chucky Goodness. Nine! As soon as the writer's strike is over, that is. It's OK - I'll wait.

*********************************

One thing I don't have to wait for is Waitress - because it's out on DVD tomorrow. Get it. Watch it. I love this movie. Not to oversell, but it's easily the best movie I saw this year. How good is it? Well, here's how good - I hate movies where people have affairs. Hate 'em. I have never, ever, in my entire movie watching history, seen any movie where the protagonists were involved in an affair that I didn't hate both of them and end up yelling at the screen, Hey! You! Grow up! Get over it! Until this one. Now, I'm not condoning affairs or nuthin', just saying that this movie actually made me sympathetic towards everyone in it. Made me wish the best for them, instead of wishing I could just knock their heads together. It didn't hurt that one of those heads belonged to Nathan Fillion. A word of caution, though: after you watch this movie, you will want pie. Best to have some on hand before you pop in the dvd.

********************************

Any ideas for evening snacks? I'm still not snacking after 9:00, but up until then anything is fair game. I just finished my jar of raspberry chipotle jelly (which I ate with cream cheese and crackers). I bought some white stilton with apricots, but it wasn't as exciting as I imagined. Then again, what is?

********************************

OK, bedtime for me. I have to be at work early tomorrow. Eeep! Wish me luck! And I just read on the cheese board that studies show people who eat stilton before going to bed have weird dreams. Sheesh. Like I needed any help in that department!
