Thanksgiving 2012

Thanksgiving is that special time of year when friends, family, and loved ones come together to give thanks for all that they are grateful. If you're Southern it means the entire house smells of a delicious blend of foods all day, everyone is hollerin' and slightly (if not completely) intoxicated, and no one is paying any mind to dietary restrictions. This is not the time of year to be sticking to a strict diet and workout routine in the first place. Wait until after the holidays are over and then you can go back to the gym, pick up some weights, get your butt to the treadmill, and shed off your Turkey Day calories. Now raise your glasses for a toast to a little bit of turkey fried!

Welcome Home, Cassidy!

Ted and I are professional cuddlers.

Winter is coming... the leaves are falling, the skies turning grey - even the weather is steadily dropping and my need for warmer clothes and a cuddle buddy are increasing. Sure, I have Theodore to keep me warm but I need something slightly bigger than a cub. Maybe a husbear? The search for him continues but in the meantime I'd like to introduce y'all to the newest addition to the family! (Seriously, when does the new Game of Thrones season start?)

Elections Are Fun, But I'd Rather Go Apple Picking

The title of this posting says it all, really. If you haven't already, get in line right now and cast your vote for the 2012 presidential elections. If you've already done so, congratulations you've made the right choice now have a shot or seven with me at the bar - that is if you voted for Obama, if you didn't get the fuck out right now. No, seriously. Get out. Elections can be a fairly stressful time so as the minutes pass to hours and the time waiting for results turns to anxiety I like to remember the simpler times of yesterweek when I was in upstate New York picking apples, zip-lining down mountains, and getting absurdly drunk with my dearest friends in the hot tub. Join me, won't you? The water's great.

Halloween 2012

I don't think we're in Kansas anymore...

Having only told a few people what my Halloween costume this year, many were dumbfounded by the clues I left in the days leading up to Halloweekend and the main event. They were left in the dark until I dropped a house on them by revealing my ruby slippers, a gorgeous pair of red sequin pumps in a women's size 10. I totally lucked out when finding these shoes at the big Halloween store down in Union Square and, upon purchasing them, knew my outfit was complete! Down the yellow brick road we go!
