Guessing Game!

My friend snapped this "Things I See" photo on her iPhone. She spotted this dude in a CVS in San Fran. He was in front of her in line. I am usually nosy and look to see what people have in their carts. The question of the moment is: what is this man buying?

Could it be Cheetos? What about socks? WRONG! He was buying condoms. Yes, I italicized the word "condom". And they were NOT magnums. Just sayin'.

Tale of an Open Flame and a Scarf.

I should know better. But I don't use my noggin sometimes. (Sometimes you ask? How about OFTEN!). I was trying to be helpful in the kitchen at Thanksgiving, doing whatever the queen of the kitchen needed. My sister asked me to toast almonds- which I burned, is anyone surprised? As I was toasting them, I leaned over an open flame with a scarf on that had a fringed edge. S-M-R-T! Right?

I immediately smelled something burning and noticed my scarf was ablaze. Ok, I am being a teeny bit dramatic. But still. It happened. Stuck it under water and we were good to go. Think I can blame the burned almonds on the scarf? Let's go with that.

What a great Thanksgiving it was, though. YUMMY food and lots of kisses from the kiddos. Happy heart.

I'm in a Fight with the Airlines.

And there is absolutely nothing that can be done about it. Except stay put. Which is not going to happen. I used to bawk at my holiday flights that crept just north of the 5 hundo mark. Ahem, welcome to holiday travel rape-a-thon 2010. My head is spinning that my flights for both holidays before checked bag fees are just a few doll hairs shy of FIFTEEN hundo. I'm not going to Tahiti, people! I am going to the Midwest! In the words of my Grandpa Joe, "Jesus, Mary and Joseph!".

BUT, all complaining aside, I am over the moon that I get to spend so much time with the peanuts and a very abbreviated trip to the Geebz. Happy ALMOST December! And I'll be back just in time to smell these:

It's so nice to come out on TOP of Ohio State in the BCS. It just is.

This WOULD Happen to Me.

I was just packing for Thanksgiving with the fam, and I bought a new sweater (you know because all of mine were moth bait) and was planning on wearing it for Thanksgiving and I went to pack it and...wait for it...

...had this on it. Yes, that's right. The sensor is still on. Free gift with purchase! Kill.

Disclaimer: said sweater with bonus sensor doesn't look cute in the photo, but I swear it is.

New Look for Tay Tay.

I know you've done this before. You know, straightened your hair. Taylor Swift, I am talking to you. I appreciate the consistency with your barrel curls, but it gets old. So when you switch it up, it's like a breath of fresh air. And you kind of look like Brooklyn Dekker when you do. And that is FAR from a bad thing.

And you decided to throw us a curve ball at the AMAs tonight with your straight locks and short dress. I approve. Let's keep the style transformation train chugging along, ok? Thanks. Because I like you. You're a peanut. And you used to make out with Finn Hudson.

I'm A Gryffindor.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 was released today. I am a Potter fan. I've read all the books and have seen all the flicks. BUT there are Potter fans out there who get really into it. I was running errands this morning and was behind this car at Fairfax and Melrose.

They read: "Avada Kadavra (if only)" and "I'd rather be playing Quidditch". Wow. That is some serious HP fan if they're sticking those on their car! I honestly want to go see the movie today just so I can see all the people who dress up like wizards! I miss Dobby!

If You Have To Sneeze, Sneeze Into This.

Last weekend was a beautiful weekend here in Hell-Ay. But for some reason, my (what I think were) allergies were acting up. Dana was here visiting from San Fran and we sauntered on down to Manhattan Beach for some lunch. As we were waiting for a table, I had my hands full and I felt a monster sneeze sneaking up on me. It came so fast I BARELY got my hand up to my mouth, but alas, I did. Phew.

I panicked, looked at Dana and made sure I didn't give her a second shower, and she looked dry. Why did she look dry? Because apparently I SNEEZED IN HER MOUTH. Yup. Couldn't have even aimed for her if I tried. I still am cracking up thinking about it. I know it's SO gross.

Mujer- I am terribly sorry. I promise to never sneeze in your mouth again.

This Is How I Feel Right Now.

Hello? Anyone home?

I've been completely off the grid and MIA. I've been a terrible friend. Averaging about 5 days to return calls and emails. And I feel like the picture above. Except not as put together. :)

Wouldn't it be pretty sweet if steam actually shot out of our ears when we felt insane? Out to celebrate a bestie's birthday this eve and then things will calm down for 2 days. Whew! Happy, HAPPY birthday BTG! xo

Being from Green Bay means you lurrrve yourself some Packers. I started keeping tabs on this dude after a most impressive season last year.

Clay Matthews III. What's not to love? That hair! He WALKED ON at USC (which was a powerhouse when he was there). He worked (and still works) his tail off. He is a third generation NFL Legacy- his dad, grandfather and uncle all played in the NFL. His little brother is currently playing with the #1 Ducks in college and killing it. Clay leads the NFL in sacks so far this season with 10 1/2. Defensive MVP in the league at the end of the year? Time will tell. Pantene deal on the horizon? If Polamalu can get a Head & Shoulders deal, then Pantene is a shoe in for Matthews.

He just might be my favorite. Officially a Claymate. And this post is after I had a dream about the Packers last night and Siri said to me: "Ing, you might need to take a break from football." After that dream, Siri, I think you might be right. Just can't help myself!

Double Ohmygoodnessheishot Seven

Collective sigh of relief. Daniel Craig will be returning as James Bond.

I loved Casino Royale so much that I saw it in the theater twice. Swoon. Wasn't nuts about the follow up, but I can't wait for Bond 23 come November 2012.

I Scream, You Scream!

Have you tried this ice cream yet? It's cake batter ice cream with ribbons of frosting and sprinkly goodness.

If not, do it. You won't be sorry. It's not always in grocery stores, and much to my combined emotions of joy and dismay, it's back on the shelves. Joy because it's delicious. Dismay because, like Lay's, you can't have just one (bite).
