Buzz Kill Numero Dos

Ok so the majority of the cooking got put off until tomorrow which majorly sucked. My dad, out of nowhere, decided it was imperative for us to go to my Grandma's apartment and finish packing things up. I chickened out. I honestly dont think I could've handled it. I am fully aware that sometime very soon I will have to sort through her things, but I can't do it in her old house. I'd feel like a burglar.

So then! I made peanut butter bon-bons. They're ridiculously delicious. I made a ginormous mess while making them though, it was glorious. My mom and I went to the grocery store to get the supplies because we were out of flour... Well, when we got it home, there was definite plunging of the arm up to the elbow into the massive container of flour, just 'cause we could. Now there's a sensation, I tell you what.

But other than that I have been so. bored. I went through all of facebook and looked at everyone's pictures. I have concluded that I need a digital camera pronto... and donations are definitely accepted.


Still, SO BORED. Thus, Holidaze meme!

1. What was the best present you ever recieved?
2. What was the lamest present you ever recieved?
3. Have you ever really gotten what you asked for?




1. The best present I ever recieved was a pair of brand-spankin' new parabolic K2 skis. They're gorgeous.
2. The lamest present I've ever been given was definitely an ass ugly sweater that I never, ever wore. I *may* have burned it...
3. I rarely, if ever, get what I ask for. I really don't know why my family bothers with Christmas wish-lists because everyone just wings it anyway, or buys their present for themself and then just informs the respective giver. :) It works out.

1. What was the best present you ever recieved? Moonchild from my parents. I almost cried xDDDD (I'm sad ¬¬)
2. What was the lamest present you ever recieved? Hm... I don't think presents are lame, really. Every present is good to me, because, you know, they tried xDD
3. Have you ever really gotten what you asked for? I think I do every year. I never know what to ask for, so I ask for stupid little things that are easy to get xDD

That's a good policy.

I'm pretty easy to please, but there are some things that I just wont tolerate and I always feel like if someone gets me a present that I won't use, then I'm an asshole. =/

Ohh I know what you mean! I feel bad not using it too. Like my aunt got me this really gross smelling perfume once, and I didn't ever use it and she came over and was like "Oh you didn't like your perfume?" so I had to make up a lame excuse about how I liked it so much I used it all and bought another one. xDDD So I guess that could count as a lame present, but, you know, it's the thought that counts xD ^_^;

Yah, it totally is. I think that's why my favorite stuff to get is handmade somethin or others. That seems like extra thought to me. :)

1. the best present i think would have to be this year, my shiny happy new grown up bed. it's amazing how much just a simple BED can change your entire mentallity. up until this point i had been dorm bedding or futoning it up.

2. lamelamelame? a friend once gave me a huge stuffed duck that dubbed as a back massager. it was just...strange and slightly disturbing.

3. yes. i'm a lucky bitch like that. just this morning i opened up the record player that i had been pining for. but when it comes asking for pressies i tend to be pretty small scale (except for the bed)

OH MY GOD. I DIDNT EVEN REMEMBER MY NEW BED. Yes, total agreement. Grown-up bed that belongs to YOU is remarkable!

I also just inherited my Grandmother's Turntable. ♥ at LPs.

i don't know what it is about lp's (besides my urge to get a really ghetto one and attempt a bit of scratching, which we all know would in fact torture our ears)

maybe it's the fact on older albums, you feel a bit more like you're hearing it in it's original form. regardless i heart them.

Word. I am amazed at how it works, with the needle and the specific speed and the the grooves that illicit forth music?

I love the specific sound quality you get, especially from old records. I've got swing records with Glenn Miller and Ella Fitzgerald and whatnot, and the songs don't sound the same on CD but on LP they're just rich and beautiful. It's like goin' into history a bit and hearing it. *snuggles them*

Then again, I also have Jimmy Luxury and Portishead on LP and though you don't get the same bass WOMP that you do on my other stereos, it's still ridiculously awesome.

I know artists that still record initially onto vinyl. AS WELL as on CD form, but they do the vinyl so you get that original sound. And yes, it is fantastic. And yes, I do have some dixie records that have never, and I mean never been opened.

I also has my dad's LP of him and his band. It's just a 7 inch, and it's definitely polka music, but it's interesting to have music that your father WROTE and recorded, so I feel you there.

Also, my massively awesome record player totally has a tape record function... BOOYA mothafuckaaas!
