Random Saturday – Bah, Humbug!

  1. I kind of hate Christmas.

    Sorry to be a cliché.

  2. I definitely hate Christmas songs and commercials.

    If I have to suffer through this one more time, I swear I will kill Folgers until it dies.

  3. But I love Christmas movies. (But only the ones that don’t suck.) Thinking a marathon needs to happen soon…

    F(dash)(dash)(dash) yeah!

  4. Donated a dollar to the Salvation Army and signed a petition to end hydro-frakking all in the same week. You’re welcome, Humanity.

    After I'm canonized, I expect to become known as the Patron Saint of Frugality.

  5. Finally watched Carzy, Stupid, Love on Thursday night. Definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a good date/girls’ night movie. Romantic Comedies in general are rarely funny and never romantic; but I liked this one. It wasn’t what I’d call “romantic,” but it was very sweet. It also had me laughing out loud a lot. And you just can’t deny this wonderfulness:

    Hello again, Mr. Gosling and your eight (EIGHT) visible abdominal muscles.

  6. “It is so on that things have now become very much like Donkey Kong.” Oh, Community. Why is the TV-viewing public so blind to your utter brilliance that NBC had to bench you for the upcoming spring? SIX SEASONS AND A MOVIE!

    Pictured above: genius.

  7. So after two weeks of milking the surgery cow for all it’s worth and an additional week of half-assing it during the holiday, I’m fully back on the fitness wagon. It sucks to be so behind on the 90-day Metamorphosis regime, but the end is in sight! Only 18 more days, suckaz.

    I totally look like Gwyneth Paltrow now. Strangers keep stopping me for autographs, except they oddly mispronounce her name as "Roseanne Barr." Weird.

  8. I am not, however, completely back on the healthy eating wagon. At all. My fake-o-preggo belly is never going away.

    Maybe if I tied a festive bow around mine, I'd at least feel happier looking at it.

  9. Dear Crunchy Barney Butter; I love you. Sincerely, Courtney.

    So, you come around here often?

Random Saturday – Spanksgiving Edition

  1. THE MUPPETS! I saw the movie on Wednesday night with Becky, Ashley and Kristen and it was amazing. I laughed! I cried! I had other emotional reactions! It was awesome seeing all the characters I grew up with back in the game, and I instantly fell in love with Walter, the new Muppet! Everything about the movie was perfect – the jokes, the songs, the cameos, all of it was awesome! I’d love to see it nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards this year, and maybe – just maybe – win a statuette or two…

    One criticism: needs more Gonzo. Everything needs more Gonzo.

  2. That said, Hugo looks fucking fantastic, and I can’t wait to see it.

    Even though Kid Mordred kinda creeps me out.

  3. My jeans are tighter today than they’ve been in weeks.

    Not cool.

  4. But then, so’s my bra…

    Bring more brownies, stat!

  5. You guys watch Weirdo or listen to Camp yet? If not, do it now. Donald Glover’s pretty much my soulmate.

  6. The neighbors across the street have a bunch of those huge inflatable Christmas decorations on their lawn. One is a Nativity scene. I silently judge them. I’m a bad person.

    Your tackiness makes Baby Jesus sad.

  7. Most happy Christmas songs make me wanna tear my eyes out with the good silverware, but I love a lot of the sad ones, like “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” and “I’ll Be Home For Christmas.” Does that say anything about me as a person?

    I do know what liking this song says about someone. It's not good.

  8. I decided I’m gonna start following college basketball. I’m gonna be a North Carolina fan, because they have argyle on their uniforms and I totally dig it. That seems like a solid reason to root for a team.

    Lookin' sharp, Tarheels.

  9. Delaney met Santa at the mall today. Adorable quota for the year: met.

    If this doesn't make you smile, I don't want to know you.

Thanksgiving 2011

This Thanksgiving, I wanted to make some substantial contributions to dinner. I’m not much of a domestic, but since I’ve been so interested in food recently, I thought the holiday was a great opportunity to try out a couple of recipes. These are the recipes I tried:

  1. Apricot Cinnamon Almond Hummus from Peas and Thank You
  2. Applesauce Nut Bread from Skinnytaste
  3. Cranberry Pear Sauce from Skinnytaste
