Christmas time is here…

Good afternoon, my fine readers. I’m writing this on my couch in my babyless house. Yes my friends, I’m on vacation. Of course, the gods of comedy thought “Wouldn’t it be HILARIOUS if the one time Jenna took time off work to just relax…SHE GOT A COLD? Muah-ah-AHHHH!1!!11!”

And so it was. Granted, I knew it was only a matter of time before I got sick. The hubs has had a cold since a couple weeks ago. But…it had been so long that I kind of thought “HECK YES. IMMUNE SYSTEM!” and then we fist bump. But, after our Christmas party Saturday night (which included a 4:30am bedtime) – my immunity had left the building.

Anyway, ZOMG CHRISTMAS!! I’m so excited. I mean, I’ll be more excited after we have the five hour drive to my parents house under our belts, but excited none the less. We’ll be gone for five days, which is pretty sweet. All my gifts are wrapped, I have one left to purchase and I am READY for Santa to visit Abbers. In fact, for your viewing pleasure, here’s a cell phone picture (of the picture) of Abbers and the big man.

Okay, this is going to be one of those posts where I have no attention span because I TOTALLY FORGOT. It was discovered during our Christmas party that we suddenly have a ton of HD channels we didn’t know we had, like Comedy Central, VH1, MTV, TruTV, FX, THE WEATHER CHANNEL (!!) , E! and The Travel Channel. Can I tell you how my life is now complete? I don’t want to do anything anymore. In fact, since I woke up this morning, I’ve been watching “Most Shocking: High Speed Pursuits” on TruTV. Yep. Aside from my cold? BEST VACATION EVER.

Alright, that’s all I have right now. I still have a bunch of unpublished posts in the hopper, so keep your eyes peeled.  In case I don’t get back before then, Merry Xmas to your and yours, happy belated Hanukkah, and happy solstice!

We’re all gonna die a snowy death. And…SANTA!

The storm arriving tonight has the potential to be the biggest winter storm for much of Minnesota since the 1991 Halloween blizzard. Possible white-out conditions south and west of the Twin Cities, and wind chills of -20 to -35. (source)

So, I started writing a post about how Abbers will be seeing the man from the North Pole this afternoon, but all I am hearing since yesterday afternoon is SNOWMAGEDDON and that we’re going to be buried under 1-2 FEET of snow. I’m having a hard time focusing on anything else.

Again, why do I live here?

Anyway, this afternoon the hubs (who is sick as a dog right now with a cold I’m sure I’ll be suffering from momentarily) will be bringing Abby downtown and we’re heading the Macy’s to walk through the Christmas display on 8th floor, and then see the man himself. Secretly, I’m kind of hoping we get one of those pictures with the big ugly tears. I would love to add something to this collection.

I’ll post some pictures later. Of both our house covered in snow and Abbers with Santa.

Meat in a can. Part deux.

Lately I’ve had some sweet spam comments. I thought I’d share them with you. Please to enjoy:

Hello, I think your blog is epic. Congrats.
-This came from someone whose “name” is Virtual Online Games

Why is it that humans can move their eyes in opposite directions toward the nose, but not away from the nose?
-This comment was on Abby’s birthday post. Honestly? A good question, Mr. Watch Movies.

Congratulations on your second pregnancy, So you are going to be a mother again! Motherhood is really a fantastic feeling indeed. You need to be wondering, in what ways your experience is going to differ from your 1st 1. Also, since your body is older than the 1st time around, you may possibly also be anxious about achievable complications. Here are a couple of things to expect throughout your second pregnancy period, and some cautions that you should take, to ensure that every thing is smooth sailing.
-First…WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA. I’m not pregnant. No, I am not going to be a mother again. Thanks for pointing out that one is older the second time around.

Keep ’em coming, spambots. I love them.


She’s BAAAAAACCKKKKKK….

Ladies and (if any) germs, she’s back.

My bestie, known on the interwebs as Martini, is back in the blogosphere once again.

You should read her blog. She’s funnier than I am. (I know you’re thinking HOW IS THAT EFFING POSSIBLE? It’s true. Just read her first post.) DO IT.

Can it be? A Holiday Giveaway!
