- Finished November's Expense Report
- Filled out Turnpike Violation Appeal
- Paid Bills
- Watched Queen of the Damned and it was not nearly as horrible as I had heard. preferred this Lestat to Tom Cruise. Felt a stirring in my utility belt toward Marius/Vincent Perez. I tumble for very few so this is quite a compliment.
- Drank plenty of fluids: coffee, tea, hot cocoa, tea, coffee, beer, beer, tea.
- Laundered dark clothes (is there any other kind?)
- Put together and decorated Gingerbread Chalet
- Took Lily for a walk
- Listened to a Patsy Cline CD and an Elvis Presley sings Christmas Carols CD
- Watched the very end of Death in Venice... Oh, I love Dirk Bogarde! Every movie he made is a favorite of mine! I tuned in just at the right moment to watch him die on the beach as he watched young nubile Tadzio wrestle with his equally young, nubile Italian friend. In the book, wasn't ole Gustav eating strawberries when he died? I think so.
- STILL TO DO
- Mail Expense Report and Turnpike Violation Appeal
- Take Winter quilt from attic
- Fold laundered clothes and put away... do not place on trunk and forget about them!
- Clean office desk and load CD burning driver
- Is it too early to start harping about Christmas Cards?

I have a distended belly from all the stuffing, sweet potato casserole, cranberries, pumpkin pie, and turkey! Ugh.
Today I raked the backyard and my lower back is feeling the pain. Also took Cocoa to the vet... he hasn't been eating. The vet said that he may just need his teeth cleaned... or it's feline leukimia! Let's pray it is just his gums. Direct TV is giving a preview of the HBO channels which means tonight I am watching Sex and the City!!! I just love that show.
Must put in a load of laundry.... must appeal Turnpike violation ticket. Last night I dreamt I was a Native American man fleeing in a Pickup truck from an evil warlord.

I have an appointment to get my hair cut this afternoon. The woman will wash my hair before she cuts it. Yet, I still took a shower and washed my hair. Double wash just so I don't go there with dirty hair! Silly.

Judy: The Gingerbread Chalet is a Gingerbread house but it looks like more like a cottage than a house. I found it at Target- it is a kit so I have to put it together. It should be fun. Hopefully it won't be impossible.

- Bought Gingerbread Chalet at Target
- Bought 2 Christmas Presents at TJMaxx
- Bought a Crosley 1930's Turntable for myself because I have so many records and no record player. Happened across it as TJMaxx and it was very very cheap.
- Borrowed a crochet hook from my mother and yarn from my sister
- Stored leftover Summer clothes and folded Winter clothes that have been lying on the floor since I retrieved them from the attic 2 weeks ago.
- Realized my sore neck is from laying in bed on my side with my hand supporting my head as I read stupid fashion magazines, last night.

Is it possible to have had too much to drink on Friday and suffer the hangover on Sunday? Damn 1.75 drafts and free Buffalo Chicken wings!!!
I am feeling crafty. I want to buy a gingerbread house kit. I want to knit a scarf. Yet, I don't want to move. Tomorrow I am going to tell MLS (my boss) that I am taking Wednesday off. Maybe I will devote the day to baking pies! Or I will stay in bed and wonder why I am destined for constant rejection by the male animal. Why does the back of my neck ache?!?!?! I hope it isn't meningitis.
Must clean room. Must stop staring vacantly at laptop. Must move body. Must do something!

I keep seeing nuns. Within the last week I have seen maybe 5. That is more than I have seen since I was in college (Rosemont...private, Catholic, all women). Do you think it may be a sign that I should have entered the convent? Maybe I would be happier in a habit?
Of course tomorrow, Audra and I (and hopefully Lisa if she gets over her cold) are going to Happy Hour at Kahunaville so we can drink $1.75 drafts and eat free Buffalo chicken wings. That isn't a very nun-like thing to do.
When I was younger I wanted to be a nun. Not because I was very religious, but rather because I liked the garb and also because I loved Rosalind Russell and she made that great film: The Trouble with Angels. Most girls probably identified with Hayley Mills... not me! I wanted to be Mother Superior. Did you know Rosalind Russell went to Rosemont?. So did Linda Fiorentino.
I think I am just feeling angry and want to be cloistered away. Regardless, it is odd that there are so many nuns running around.

Girl after my own heart! It is good to know I am not the only one interested in wearing Wonder Woman Underoos under my business suit. In fact, this Wonder Woman lover is much more proactive than me. She wrote to Fruit of the Loom asking for Adult-sized Underoos. Here is their response:

Dean Stockwell really has been on my mind! Last night I dreamt I was flipping through the TV channels and I came across Long Day's Journey into Night. I was overjoyed since I haven't seen this movie in years. The scene that was playing had Dean Stockwell and Lauren Bacall's second husband aka Max Dugan Returns sitting together. Suddenly Max Dugan starts singing and Dean Stockwell got up and did a Bohemian dance! "What the $#@!&... I don't remember this being a musical," I exclaimed angrily. Handy Andy from Changing Rooms then walked in and sat next to me. He smelled nice and I noticed he wore his hair in a mullet with blond highlights.
I am watching way too much TV.

Watched the very end of Sons and Lovers last night on TV. Dean Stockwell was so cute and tortured back then and he made such great movies: Compulsion, Long Day's Journey into Night, Rapture... then he grew his hair long and went into a weird hippy phase. It probably would have been best if he crashed his Porsche, although I am sure he wouldn't agree. There is no denying that it worked well for James Dean. If things went differently, it could have been James Dean on Quantum Leap and a poster of Dean Stockwell on the bedroom walls of 15 year-old girls everywhere.

Last night I dreamt that I uploaded brownies to this Web site! I was happy to share and I enjoyed getting emails from people all over the world telling me how delicious the brownies tasted. (And no, I was not dressed like Wonder Woman in the dream)

Had a wonderful time. Very very very happy I went. Especially happy that I had a date (hadn't realize how important that is). Confronted the bully that made my life a living hell for 4 years. Realized the inferiority I felt was unjustified. What an absolutely cathartic experience! Definitely worth the ticket price.
Tomorrow I go to Chicago. Will be back very soon. Most likely will post pictures once I get back. Stay tuned.

Last night Lisa and I went to see Punch Drunk Love. It was horrible. Half-hour into it we walked out and demanded our money back. I advise to avoid this movie unless you are the type of person who enjoys getting your teeth drilled.

Did not eat a single piece of candy. Will not eat a single piece of candy. Must be skinny and pimple free for tomorrow. And Lord know what a single piece of chocolate will do to a person! Of course, there is no such thing as a single piece of chocolate. The intention may be 1 piece and that is all but it is never that way. It starts with one piece, two pieces, then it is the whole bag.... next thing I'm on the floor watching the room spin in an incredible sugar high. (Know these lyrics? /sit back in glorious expectation of genuine junk food high!/)
