Blogmas 2014 – Bah Humbug

Bah Humbug

Good evening readers.  I’m pretty sure the title says it all so this post will not drag on.  I have been in a blah mood today.  I could not fall asleep all day, and my mind refused to focus on an activity (e.g. reading).  On the positive side of things, candles are $8 at Bath & Body Works tomorrow, and I am finally leaving this apartment after one week of illness.  No cough or sneeze will stop me!!  Perhaps my post tomorrow will be all about my new candles.  Wont that be fragrant!  Sorry.  My brain is crazy from the boredom.  What else did I do today that was interesting…  I watched the finale of Gracepoint.  Did anyone else follow Gracepoint from the beginning?  Crazy ending.  I wont give it away, but I finally predicted something on a TV show.  I’ve basically won at life.  Not really.  I also watched Elf.  I love that movie!  My favorite part is when Buddy the Elf hears Jovie singing in the shower, innocently joins in, and scares her.  That scene tickles my funny bone every time.  Well, that is pretty much the extent of my day.  Sorry I wasn’t in a holly jolly mood today; I did my best.  Good night and stay merry readers!

Grinch: WHAT?

Cindy Lou Who: Don’t forget the Grinch. I know he’s mean and hairy and smelly. His hands might be cold and clammy, but I think he’s actually kinda… sweet.

Grinch: SWEET? You think he’s sweet?

Cindy Lou Who: Merry Christmas, Santa.

Grinch: Nice kid… baaad judge of character.”  – How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)

Blogmas 2014 – Sleep in Heavenly Peace

Sleep in Heavenly Peace

Good evening readers.  I am feeling especially rested today after my NyQuil-induced sleep last night.  That stuff should be illegal!!  Though I am not yet 100%, I am feeling well enough to listen to Christmas music and write a Blogmas post.  I am not sure if you remember this, but I tried out life as a Youtuber earlier this year.  After my college graduation, I decided to take a break because I was not feeling as excited about it as I was when I started.  Today, out of the blue, someone commented on one of my videos and requested a makeup tutorial.  I know it is only ONE comment, but as a small Youtuber, it is both an accomplishment and motivation.  Sooo… I am thinking about going back to Youtube and filming the requested makeup tutorial as well one or two special Christmas videos.  I will let you know when that happens so that you can tune in if the videos interest you.  Perhaps this time around my perfectionist ways will not alter my personality.  :P

I hope all of you are having a very merry Christmas thus far.  Surprisingly I am having a very difficult time getting into the Christmas spirit.  I am currently dealing with a lot of changes and emotions so that could be the cause.  I also blame the “Sunny all the time” California weather.  Not Christmasy at all!!  I need to remedy this problem because time is running out.  I started my Christmas festivities way back in October, and I still feel like time went by too fast.  I might have to start in September next year!!

That is all for now.  Stay merry readers!

“Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there

The children were nestled all snug in their beds

And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap

Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.”

– “Twas the Night Before Christmas”, Clement Clarke Moore

Blogmas 2014 – Pumpkin Pie, M.D.

Pumpkin Pie M.D

Well, well, well.  What do you know?  I am behind on my Blogmas posts.  Deja vu!  I do have two excuses, the latter being much better than the first.  On December 4th, I kept procrastinating and ultimately forgot.  On December 4th, I was out and about for the first half of the day and ended up back at home sick (Very unexpected considering I was just sick for three weeks).  I decided that instead of pushing myself to write three Blogmas posts whilst sick, I would just post one and hope for the best.  I apologize for the unexpected circumstances and promise to try much harder in the coming days.  Moving on to the title.  I LOVE pumpkin pie.  Actually, that is an understatement, but, for the sake of sparing you from a pumpkin pie lovefest, I digress.  I was not able to have pumpkin pie with my Thanksgiving meal so today was the day to make up for that.  As I mentioned before, I am really sick, and since I love pumpkin pie so much, I was hoping that it would miraculously heal me.  I don’t feel better, but the pie was delicious so it wasn’t a total waste of time.  Side note: I had to bake the pie in a toaster oven.  That was interesting.  I was freaked out that I would blow up the apartment, but all went well.  Fun fact: It is possible to bake an entire pie in a toaster oven.  Perhaps you already knew that, but I did not so this is a fascinating discovery.  I am in desperate need of sleep so I will end my rambling here.  I hope my pumpkin pie story was entertaining enough for December 6th.  I will try my very best to post tomorrow.

Stay merry readers!  Only 19 days until Christmas…
