2012 It Wasn't A Very Good Year

I wish I could say a lot about 2012 that is favorable.

~ The Presidental election drove me insane and caused a huge rift in my family.

~ My father spent several weeks in the hospital throughout the course of the year, and my mother tried to play catchup with him, spending 2 weeks there this summer.

~ I didn't get any further than Bethel Park to Barnes and Noble...and I only did that one time.

~ My original Nook went splat on the floor of the YMCA about a month after its warranty was up.

However I am alive and there are some good things that happened in 2012

~ Miss Itchy came into our lives, and with her Mucker, Blinky and 'Mokey my adorable little kittens.

~  I got a new laptop.

~ Doctor Who was pretty amazing as is The Neighbors.

~ Discovered a lot of great independent authors thanks to my book blog.

~ Really came to love cooking and baking...and sadly my waistline shows it.

Christmas Presents

Here's a picture of some of the things that Santa brought me for Christmas this year.

That's because those tins are filled with lots and lots of Christmas cookies.

What did I make?

Easy Chewy Macaroons, Chocolate Cherry Slice Cookies, Chocolate Krinkles, Mini Chocolate Chip Balls, Fruited Nut Chippers, Florentines, Chocolate Shortbread, Chocolate Cherry Cordial Cookies.

I'm Santa's best buddy now!

So, after looking at this pile of goodies, do you think I have enough Starbucks and mugs?

Merry Christmas

Happy Christmas to all! And to all a holiday earworm!

I Need A Break

I think I'll be taking a blogging break for the next few days, so that I can get ready for the holiday.

Lots of baking to do.

Lots of stuff to do.

Not much to say that everyone else isn't saying a 100 times better.

So if I'm absent until Tuesday or Wednesday, just know I'm going crazy...

Thursday, December 20, 2012

Things I Need To Do

Thank God for the long weekend before the holiday!

I need to clean.

Make many more cookies.

Do some more grocery shopping

Somehow find some Christmas spirit.

And maybe, just maybe read a book?

I'm not really asking for much, especially since I'm not doing the whole presents thing for the holiday.



And if I can't have the time to read, I'd like to put that time to good use, SLEEPING!

I've Got Problems

~ The roof in Grandma's house, that would be my house, is leaking, and I don't have money to fix it.

~ I can't afford presents this year.

~ Dad is not doing well, as much as I don't want to sound pessimistic, this may be our last Christmas together and that scares me.

~ Right now I'm hoping the Mayans are right.

The Great Gun Debate

Ah the 2nd Amendment. That right to keep and bare...bear...arms.

Here's something to think about.

If you say criminals will get guns anyway..

When it comes to these mass shootings, these people aren't criminals,  yet. They are mentally unstable.

Plus, why do civilians need assault rifles?

I have no problems with hand guns, though I have to say, having family that was murdered in their beds, the guns that were sitting in the nightstand did nothing to protect them. But again, I have no problem with those.

I also have a huge problem with turning our schools into high security prisons and having principals armed.

How long before a kid gets hold of a faculty member's weapon.

There has to be a better way to keep people and our children safe.

I think it has to come from tougher screening and keeping weapons out of the hands of people with mental illness and even their family. If not that, tougher regulation on the amount of ammunition.

Then, the media needs to shut up.

These children and adults are gone. Let the families pick up their pieces in silence. Let them grieve and get the cameras out of their faces.

If you want to do something for them, pray for them. Their loss won't be forgotten.

Big Sigh

Laundry and cookie making

That's what I did this weekend, along with sitting at the hospital with my dad.

This time it was his heart acting up.

If it isn't one thing it is another.

I just don't have it in me to do much anymore.

Nothing To Say

After watching the news today, I have to say, I have no words for the tragedy that occurred in CT this morning.

Nothing I say will be of any use, except that this was just senseless and cruel and horrible.

But we already no that.

Anyone with two brain cells to rub together knows that.

The world weeps for the parents of those children lost today..for the families of the adults that were lost today, as they were doing their jobs...helping to educate those children.

It is a sad sad day.....

I'm cold.

I don't feel good

I want to go to bed and sleep for like forever.

This teenage rant...brought to you by someone that's closing in on 40....

And yes, my friends, I would like some cheese with my whine

O Christmas Tree

Well, I finally got the tree up.

One of them.

The question now, is how long will it stay up.

The little grey kitten has been living in its branches for a few days.

Today I finally put ornaments on it, and said a prayer that the thing will last til Christmas.

One more tree to go!

I'm going to go for bows and dollar store ornaments to be on the safe side!

Look At What I've Got

This is today's shirt over at RIPT apparel!

I'm such a fangirl and this shirt combines my two favorite fandoms, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Doctor Who!


I'm so excited.

And yes, I'm easily amused by T-shirts that mash up my favorite things.

I'm pretty easily amused all the way around!

Monday Monday Go Away

I'm not ready for Monday.

I didn't get any time to myself.

It is 10:30 and I'm still doing laundry.

I haven't started the holiday mix CD.

I've just about finished buying the baking stuff for all my cookies.

Still unsure of what's going to happen with the trees, since I now have a kitty climber. No joke, I've had a cat since I was in college, and I've had multiple cats just as long and none of them bothered the tree until now. ARGH!

I'm tired, I'm cranky and I get no time to myself.

No one helps me.

No one does anything.

I really can't take it anymore.

I haven't been to a concert in 2 years. I have't been to a mall in over a year. I haven't even been to a flipping don't know how long.

This is not right!!!!

I demand a do over on my life.

Saturday, December 08, 2012

Weekends Suck

I'm not saying I didn't get anything accomplished so far, because that would be a lie. I got a lot of my baking stuff bought. I even put the tree up. I didn't decorate it yet, I just assembled it. I'm giving the cats time to get used to the idea of a tree standing in the room. So far only one cat has decided to climb it. That's a first actually. Smokey thought the tree was a fun place to be though. Such fun! Now I'm going through cooking magazines. I'm trying to get rid of some because, well, I'm just sick of everything. I just want someone to send me a garbage dumpster and have it parked right below a window so I can just start tossing stuff. I don't care whose stuff it is, I want to toss it all. I would just like this house to look semi-decent once in my life. I think that is an impossibility. Unless of course I won the lottery.

Friday, December 07, 2012

I'm Making A List

I'm sitting at my computer typing up all the Christmas Cookies I plan to make and the ingredients each needs, so that I can do my shopping in one swoop. That's pretty smart of me, isn't it? Aren't you proud. So far I'm up to about 5 different kinds of cookies. No, make that 6, I've added Christmas biscotti to the list. I might do Florentine's again and the Oreo Cream Cheese Cookies too. What are your favorite holiday cookies?

I Want This!

A freaking Tardis purse.

The cost is insane, because its hand made and just crazy gorgeous.

Would you believe $180?


So, yeah, I want it, but no I'm not getting it.

But isn't it so darn cute?'

The leather one is $249!

The Big News Of The Week

Duchess Catherine (note I don't call her Kate Middleton) is pregnant. Big whoop tee do. Sure she's going to produce the heir to the throne of England, but geeze that kid is actually 4th in line to the throne..after Grandpap Charles and his daddy. It doesn't seem much to get excited about. Plus poor mom to be is puking her guts (and mind you, Catherine doesn't have much in that area) up with an extreme case of morning sickness. Such sickness sending her to the hospital, and giving the media cause to speculate she may have twins! GAH! What a way to produce the sibling rivalry from hell. Cos the kid that comes out second is not going to be happy about that. However, I'd rather hear about Kate's pregnancy woos over the Fiscal Cliff that our inept Congress is about to send us over. How about we push all of them off the cliff and start over?

BBC America Sucks

I love British TV, but BBC America doesn't really like to play much of it.

I'm sick of Top Gear and anything with Gordon Ramsey.

Oh and why do they play Star Trek? Having Patrick Stewart in the cast does not make it something that should be on BBC America.

I want Britcoms!

I want something interesting.

I don't want more crap reality shows.

Don't we have enough of those already?

Miranda is starting back on the 26th of December, and it sucks that getting to watch it is next to impossible, because god forbid BBC America play any comedies anymore.

I think the last comedies they aired where The Catherine Tate Show and Little Britain, and that was back when Catherine was the companion on Doctor Who...and that was uh...a few years ago!!!!

Not A Good Day

Dad's been to the hospital twice today.

Once at midnight, and he was released at 2:30 and then a few hours later.

He's going to have a short stay.

Here's hoping we can keep all our sanity until he comes home.

For all the time I spend at Mon Valley Hospital, I should work there.

So Much To Do

I have reviews to write...

Decorations to sort out

Lists to make when it comes to cookies...this year I have to decide which ones I'm making so I don't overspend on ingredients.

Can you believe it?

I can go overboard on making cookies?

Can you ever have too many cookies?

Then there is the cleaning.

I will accept help from anyone willing to drive to Goodwill with stuff or bring garbage bags. I want the house to look decent for the holiday.

Now all I need are more hours in the day...

Oh No Snow

I'm going to make like a bird and fly south for the winter!

Another Sunday Night

My feelings for Sunday night, as summed up by a picture found on Facebook

It is sad, when these things really reflect your life.

Now could someone please tell Monday not to show up this week?

Saturday, November 24, 2012

This Is What I've Done With My Holiday Weekend

1. Stuffed my face with too much food.

2. Watched Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and Arthur Christmas

3. Did a whole lot of nothing and slept in very strange patterns.

4. Actually got to the Y a few times, but that did nothing to cancel out all the food I consumed in the last 4 days.

5. Slept in the damn chair and gave myself back pain.

5. Played with the kittens

Yup I lead such an exciting life!

Black Friday Is Just Wrong

I think I was raised right. We never did any shopping on Black Friday, except maybe if we needed groceries.

Every time I see people out on Black Friday, I can't help but think about how greedy we've all become. Sure the toy shoppers are out there getting gifts for their kids. I'm still pretty sure that it is status stuff too, that makes mom and dad look good and not trying to get something because your child really really wants it.

When I was little it was Cabbage Patch Dolls.

Guess what?

I never got one for Christmas, and I'm still here.

I did eventually get one..but it was long past the insanity of it all.

When it comes to electronics on Black Friday that is all about greed. Lining up to get iPods, TVs, Computers.


I guess we were poor, because in my family,  you didn't buy people TVs for Christmas.

In fact in all my Christmases. The one thing I got that brought me the most joy was this doll: Baby Soft Sounds. I wish I still had her, I loved her so much.

I like Christmas to be, good food, great music, and pretty decorations...the stuff will always be there.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Busy Busy Busy

I'm baking florentine cookies right now and then pumpkin pies.

I may stop in time to sleep for a few hours before starting the actual dinner.

The florentines are so good.

I mean they are super good.

You know...cookiegasm good.

Yeah they are that good.

I've got to get back to my cookies.

I am just a baking diva...if you want any..the line forms here

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Its Almost Thanksgiving

Pardon me while I have a panic attack.

The house looks like hell.

I just can't get anything done.

Someone put a big garbage dumpster outside so I can just tilt the house over and let all the crap fall out!

Do you think that would work?

If not, can someone come with a few boxes of Glad trashbags?

When Rock Stars and Politicians Collide

I had a nightmare last night.

It was one of those dreams that stays in your mind but not completely. I know what people were in it, but I can't really tell you a whole lot about what was going on or why.

Nick Rhodes from Duran Duran was in the dream and John Boehner.

Yeah, this is nightmarish stuff.

Not Nick Rhodes, I'd welcome him in my dreams anytime, but John Boehner. That is someone that I never want to appear in my dreams/nightmares ever again.

I could accept this kind of dream if I had taken Nyquil or Tylenol PM, but nope, this is something my mind came up with on its own!


I hope I have a better night's sleep tonight

Watching M*A*S*H

My Sunday nights almost always seem to revolve around the 4077. I'm not sure why. Maybe it is because I harbor a strange crush on Alan Alda's Hawkeye.

Tonight they aired the first episode with Sherman Potter. I have to admit, I've seen many episodes of this show, when they were actually on, when I was a wee bitty girl and in re-runs, but I never saw the epi Change Of Command.

I have seen the epi where Henry Blake leaves though a few dozen times.

There were so many cast changes in that show, a lot of the early ones because of Alan Alda really stealing the spotlight from the other actors.

Ah well.

Still it is good TV, something there isn't much of these days.

Who was your favorite character on M*A*S*H?

A World Without Twinkies?

I'm trying to grasp what a world without Twinkies, Ho-Ho's and Suzi-Qs will be like, if Hostess Bakery liquidates starting tomorrow.

I don't know about you, but the world is starting to seem a whole lot more bleak!

I mean, this is worse than The Fiscal Cliff the idjits in Washington are ready to jump from!

I say jump!

I mean, life without Twinkies?

It is hardly a life worth living.

They were actually one snack cake that you could have for dessert that didn't make you feel too guilty. (Except when you're at an amusement park eating them deep fried!)

Diet Is Die with at T

This is the post where I whine about being fat and give the world a lot of excuses why nothing works for me anymore.

Allow me to start whining now.

1. I have to cook for 5 to 6 people nearly ever day. Weight Watchers TV dinners aren't an option for me anymore.

2. Because of the nature of my parents illnesses, I don't get to leave the house much. I used to go the Y a few times a week, I'm lucky if I get there once now.

3. My dad has a sweet tooth, which means I tend to back a lot.

4. Every day when I come home from work, he wants a freaking McChicken! That ultimately ends up with me getting something too. ARGH!

My life is one big stress bubble and unfortunately I eat when I'm stressed.

~Big sigh~

Anyone want to come to my pity party?

Ear Worms

You know, I have to say most songs that get stuck in my head are songs I've heard on the radio multiple times.

What really drives me crazy is when a song that I've not even listened to somehow manages to work its way inside my mind.

That is truly annoying.

Sometimes you just have to mention a song and it gets stuck in your head. You know, like Barry Manillow's Mandy.


The power of suggestion is really a nasty thing.

So please don't mention Taylor Swift around me...cos I'm really sick of that Never Ever Ever Gonna Get Back Together is the most horrific piece of musical trash ever, and once it gets in your head, it is a total parasite, it won't leave!!

Just A Few Words

I'm a cheap date.

Give me one Sam Adams Winter Lager and I'm out like a light. Of course I only got about 5 hours of sleep last night, but still.


I slept through all the shows I usually watch on Monday night.

2 Broke Girls


Mike and Molly


I guess I needed the sleep, right?

Its such an exciting life I lead.

Sundays Aren't My Fundays

For those of you that are used to my Sunday night rants, you can move along, there's nothing to see here.

Same rant, different week.

All I want is a weekend where I can REST.

I'm pretty sure that's never ever ever going to happen and I will be eternally cranky on Sundays.

I can't even sit in Starbucks and enjoy a damn coffee. I have to grab it and go.

I need a vacation from my life. Somewhere I can go with just a few books, a pot of coffee and a pillow, where I don't have to worry about cleaning potty chairs, and filling pill bottles. Just for one stinking lousy day.

But do you know what?

It isn't going to happen, because no one can be bothered to learn anyone's pills besides me.

Pictures, I Love 'Em & I Hate 'Em

I was cleaning again today and I came across a lot of old photos.


The problem is, these photos were just laying about or in their envelopes.

They had no place to go.

I love looking at old photos, but I hate trying to find places for them.

I think that's one of the reasons I like digital photography so much. I can view the photos at any time. I can get prints or books etc made of them, or even a fancy digital frame that lets me see many pictures, but without the clutter.

I can't take the clutter anymore.

There's so much stuff in this house that doesn't need to be here, and getting rid of it...either to the garbage or to goodwill is driving me to the brink.

I wish I could just put a big garbage bin outside the house and just start chucking everything in.

Friday, November 09, 2012


~ Dad came home from the hospital today. Not sure why they kept him this time, except to give us a vacation from his shenanigans!

~ The house is a mess and I need to spend the weekend cleaning it.

~ I have nothing done for Thanksgiving, and I'm not celebrating Christmas this year.

~ This is going to be the first election stress free weekend. I need to find a good movie to watch tomorrow night!

~ I miss Doctor Who, but the thought of Cybermen being a huge part of the next series makes me a little nauseous. They need to come up with something different.

~ I need to rewatch this week's episode of The Neighbors, as I fell asleep through it on Wednesday.

Republicans and Other Terrifying Things

Bilbo sent a letter to the Republican Party via his blog, and I have a few things I'd like to say as well.

Dear GOP,

I guess the O in GOP really does stand for "old."

I'm going to solve some problems for you, actually most informed citizens know this already, but I'm going to remind you, and some of this may even go against the party I belong too.

Bush tax cuts...let them expire. These are cuts to Social Security. A bad move on W's part to begin with. You don't take funds away from something that you are killing.

Secondly, the wage cap on SS that kicks in at somewhere around $100,000.00, yeah, well that needs to go. As long as you are collecting a check, you should pay into the program. It helps everyone.

There are other ways to cut spending besides cutting necessary programs. You don't cut things that help other Americans. What you might consider is starting to write laws that are only laws, bills etc that don't have fillers about funding for bug research or some other stupid thing. You don't cut education, because that is just stupid. If you want to be innovative and move the country forward, you need smart people creating things.

You've got to stop insulting the intelligence of the American people. (An FYI that's women, latinos, blacks etc) You've also got to stop foisting your religious beliefs on the rest of the world. We were a country that is founded on religious freedom. That means accepting the beliefs of Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Wiccans and even Atheists. Everyone has a right to their beliefs.

Maybe when you move into the 21st century, people will accept you. It would help if you got rid of people like Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman and Paul Ryan too.

Now get to work and stop undermining the president, it makes you look like a bunch of grade school kids.


The Mistress of the Dark


There's nothing more terrifying as a Republican, especially if that Republican is Donald Trump

Nothing Like Sore Losers

I'm sick of apologizing for my 60 year old brother who is unfortunately one of those republicans that needs to have their head pulled from their ass.

I've apologized to family and friends because of his tirades against Obama this year.

Apparently all who cast a vote for the President are lazy.

Well F-you my dear brother. You are just as bad as Romney in making at 47% statement, and at least Romney, conceded with grace and dignity. I may not have liked him or voted for him, but at least he came across then as a gentlemen. It is a shame, the same cannot be said for you.

Oh and I have to say, I was so happy OH went blue!

Annoying Political Thing

I saw a picture of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama today on Facebook, and some idjit made a comment that these two men were responsible for the deaths of thousands of babies.

This is where I want to stand up and punch people.

Pro Choice does not mean pro abortion. Just as in a perfect world Pro Life would mean life for all things, not just unborn babies.

I'm sure neither man wants to see women having abortions for shits and giggles.

I can't begin to express the anger I feel at people that think that a women raped doesn't deserve the right to terminate the pregnancy or that a mother who might not survive wouldn't have that opportunity if abortions weren't something that could be medically provided to them.

I don't believe abortion should be used as a form of birth control, but there are several instances where it is necessary.

And idjits, women don't wake up and decide to have unprotected sex just so they can have a gov't funded abortion.

And if you are so Pro Life, why are you also Pro Gun. Pro Life should mean anti-death penalty too you know. (And anti-killing period)

Respect ALL LIFE, not just one area.

Oh and what of all the service men that were killed overseas in 2 wars that we didn't necessarily have to fight?

Another Weekend Gone

This was a three day weekend for me.

I should feel rested, right?

No. I don't.

I feel like I've been pulled at both ends.

I'm more tired today than I was on Friday morning.

How is that fair?

And the political ads aren't helping. They are filling me with rage. I can't take another one. Why is there no rock I could hide under until Wednesday?

Its giving me a headache the size of Texas.

Too Soon

Yesterday I went to Giant Eagle and they were piping Christmas music through the store.


November 2?

That is so not right.

It is beyond wrong in fact.

However today took things a little too far.

I watched my first Christmas movie on the Hallmark Channel.

Yup, you read that right, the first Christmas movie of the year, Christmas Song, on Hallmark.

They couldn't wait a few more weeks. Nope, that would be too easy and keep us from going totally mad before Thanksgiving.

On the plus side, the movie was cute, but not cute enough that it couldn't have waited a few more weeks.

Why don't they just start pushing the holiday at Labor Day or even July 4th!

I guess the point is to be sick of Christmas before it even gets here, right?

Not Looking Forward To Friday

I have a doctor's appointment in the afternoon.

Not looking forward to any of it.

Especially not the stepping on the scale part of it.

I've tried hard to get the scale to drop.

However, dealing with the everyday insanity of taking care of my parents makes it very difficult not to eat.

I'm just going to cry when I go into the office.

To Tired To Care

Between the political ads filling me with rage and the storm from hell, that didn't make it to Pittsburgh..I'm just really tired.

I'm tired of looking at all the bad things going on.

I'm tired of bad things period.

I'd like to declare the rest of the week, an International Period Of Rest.

Everyone in their pajamas until next Monday.

All political ads should cease. If you don't know who you're voting for...tough shit. You should.

F You Hurricane Sandy

It is cold, wet and rainy.

I'm not anywhere near the ocean and we are feeling the effects of this stupid late season hurricane.

You're not the one I want, Sandy!

On the plus side, at least for us, the power is still on. Thank God for that, since Dad is on oxygen.

I just want this storm to be over, as I'm sure millions of people on the east coast do.

I also want to sleep.

Which is hard, when you are wondering if those 2 big pine trees will stay standing when the winds really start kicking!

All Kinds Of Stuff & Nonsense

~ Made Cream Cheese Oreo Cookies yesterday. Followed the recipe from the Crumbs & Chaos site, but man the recipe needed tweaking. Just an FYI for anyone that decides to try these cookies, which are absolutely yummy. You don't need to crush 13 Oreos. That's a blatant waste of cookies and is criminal. Half of that and you're fine.

~ Created a blog for my kitty pictures etc. The Crazy Cat Lady's Cats.

~ Watched way too many episodes of Roseanne. They were playing the Halloween epis this weekend. I'm still trying to figure out why that had George Clooney cast as Jackie's ex-boyfriend/boyfriend. Like a guy that looks like that would date Jackie! Yea right!

~ Better organized..well not organized, arranged my books that I keep in my ITSO cubes. Not a fun task.

~ Made peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. YUM!

~ The election is driving me mad. Each day I want to run screaming from the TV. And each day I hate republicans more and more.

Top 5 On Friday

Top 5 "scary" lyrics

Siouxsie & The Banshees "Candyman"
Sickly sweet, his poison seeks For the young ones who don't understand The danger in his hands With a jaundiced wink see his cunning slink Oh trust in me my pretty one Come walk with me my helpless one Candyman
Peter Murphy - Indigo Eyes
Saw his past He had dug for trust With blind infected hands And wondered as the hurt bit hard Why the sacred weren't at hand Only when his ears were deaf To the angels light burst waves Only when his ears were deaf Did life turn from fog to fog But not evil but estranged
Bauhaus - Who Killed Mr. Moonlight
All our dreams have melted down We are hiding in the bushes From dead men Doing Douglas Fairbanks' stunts All our stories burnt Our films lost in the rushes We can't paint any pictures As the moon had all our brushes
Oingo Boingo - Insanity
I'd love to take you home with me and tuck you into bed I'd love to see what makes you tick inside your pretty head I'd love to hear you laugh tonight, I'd love to hear you weep I'd love to listen to you while you're screaming in your sleep
Danielle Dax - Yummer Yummer Man
Waiting at the corner Or underneath the stair Best turn your thoughts away Pretend that he's not there Lurking in the front room And always at the rear Tell you lots of crazy things It's better not to hear

When Everything Looks Bleak

Look at pictures of Grumpy Cat!

This is one of the sweetest little kitties I've ever seen on the internet. I love his permanent grump! Plus the cat's name is Tarter Sauce, aka Tard!
