Jack and Amanda's
Daddy's (complimentary shot of Turkey)
Its the five quilts of Christmas! These (plus Claire's) took me 5 months to do. I started in June and i finished all of the bindings while laid up from my surgery. It was tough, it cost a lot, but I am gonna be the awesomest at Christmas!

So, I slip over a bit to block the asshole cheater from stealing a turn. He must not have approved because he squeeeeeezed next to me and gave me a look, with attitude, that said "what?". I pointed to the lane and said "That's not a turn lane" through my closed window. He said something argumentative, I don't know what, so I said it again and turned in front of him. Ooooh, this must not have made his passenger happy. In fact, I promise you it didn't.
So, of course, I'm stuck at a red light right after making my proper right turn. Behind me in the car, I see it shaking, yes the car was shaking, and I can hear some words of discontent. I love to drive while on my cell phone, and I was talking to my boyfriend at the time, so of course I began to mimic the lady in the passenger seat. Then her door opens, and she steps out.
In that very ghetto dialect, "Muthafuckin bitch, step out yo car. Fight me face to face. WHAT DID YOU SAY?!!!" and I'm repeated ALL of this to the boyfriend and then she screams "I will Muthafuckin OFF YOU!!!!!!!" She repeats the threat a few times and I'm actually laughing and think its the funniest thing. But then she starts to charge the car, with her huge bazoongas shaking, and she's wearing a suit and its FUNNY.
She gets to the car and she starts screaming through the car window a lot of the things she screamed before and I'm just looking in shock and humor and repeating it all to Scott. I'm sure if I was "alone" and not on the phone with Scott i would have been scared. She was big and definitely could've taken me if I didn't have scissors in my bag next to me. I probably should have called the cops too, but I didn't know any info like make/model/tag number and they turned right after that. OH, BUT I'M NOT EVEN TO THE GOOD PART!
So, I'm getting yelled at and probably smirking as i repeat word for word her screaming. THEN, the best part. She pulled her brown pants down. She smashed her white pantyhose clad booty against my window. And she screamed "Kiss My muthafuckin ASS!" as she waved it and rubbed it on my car. Really, aren't you all jealous? This awesome stuff NEVER happens to me! Okay, it does but whatever. Anyhow, she got even madder after the booty part. Maybe it was because I was laughing, or maybe its because I wasn't afraid or yelling back, but she started trying to get in and cursing me for having locked doors (and thats a rarity so thank you luck!). She was real mad and punched my window a few times and then i noticed the driver dude was getting out and i got a teeny bit scared but figured it would be okay since he obviously wasn't the angriest one.
She eventually got back in the car, and I could tell she was still plenty pissed,but I resisted egging her on some more. I'm sure she had a real bad day and I only wish I had wished her a Merry Christmas.

You will all be happy to know that I kept myself busy these past few days. In addition to all of my fantastic TV watching, i also made some little grippies for my crutches and I bedazzled my new fine footwear! I AM fashion.
Oh, and as a special bonus, here is a picture of my newly crushed pinkie toe. It was a rough day for crutches and feet in my house.

So my "vacation" is nearing an end. In the past week + I have thoroughly enjoyed every bit of TV that i have watched. Perhaps the pain pills helped, but I think I would have enjoyed it just as much without them.
I'm all caught up on ANTM previous cycles. I'm hooked on A Shot At Love with Tila Tequila, I rewatched the entire season of rock of Love and Heather WAS the right one for Bret, he was just scared. MTV lied when they said "watch this Wednesday to see who gets kicked out of the house on the Real World Sydney". Let me tell you, I took time out of my busy schedule and I chose to maintain my relationship with the Real world instead of watching a fresh episode of one of the Law and Orders. and guess what? Those assholes lied! NO ONE got kicked off the Real world. Of course, we now know that Trisha -or whatever the blond whore's name is- pushed Prissa -or whatever the Indian or Pakistani or whatever nationality whore's name is- and Prissa gets to decide whether the blond whore is kicked off. I think she should have her booted because then the other brown haired sluts will be soooo mean to her and it will be worth watching.
Back on topic- last night I watched 6 episodes of some awesome show called Cold Case. That show and Without a Trace are my new Law and Orders although Law and Order is still awesome.
In addition to copious amounts of TV, I have also been sewing like mad! I have holes in my fingers from sewing them to things (thanks a lot percocet). I also managed to eat about 25 pounds of chocolate, cookies, cake, and candies. The Maribou Biscuit is one of the all time best chocolate bars EVER! So f-in good! Besides the TVm chocolate, and sewing, I've been enjoying a nap here and there and everywhere. I have managed to break the record today and as of this moment I have actually stayed awake for 5 hours and 48 minutes. That said, I'm going off to nap right now!

So, I went to get my surgery and they ask "have you eaten anything since midnight?" Of course, being a dummy, I answered truthfully, "yes, but it was TINY! It was a teeny tiny piece of radish. I was in the yard and noticed that the radishes were ready and I bit the tip off one and ate it."
That being said, the nurse went to talk it over with the doctors. "We're sorry, we have to cancel your surgery"
I begged and pleaded and the nurse offered for me to talk with the anesthesiologist. I explained that it really was the tiniest piece of radish and it was completely unintentional. He told me about some lady who said she had "a bite" of chicken which was actually a thigh and drumstick so he had to be absolutely sure. Its not that they're afraid I'll poop myself. If I was lying it could make me choke to death on my own vomit and well, I didn't want that either.
So I assured all doctors I was telling the truth and as a compromise, they bumped me to last in line. That meant sitting in the back with an IV, hungry as an ethiopian baby in the 80's, wearing horrible hospital issue underwear and a gown, watching episode after episode of America's Next top Model from 12:30 to 6:00pm. Scott was a trooper and sat with me most of the time.
I'm glad I got it done. Now that I have told you the embarrassing radish story, I will go back to bed. Later today i will try to post some awesome pictures! But maybe not.

The Cabbagetown Chomp and Stomp was a delicious blast of success! I had some great chili, I sold my wares, got a delicious cheddar corndogski from Pallookaville, and generally wore myself out!
Thanks to everyone who made it out, got some chili, hung out some more, and even the people who bought stuff from me!
To those who didn't make it, mark your calendars! Next year- first Saturday in November. Be there or be square!

So, after running around frolicking as a chicken, I got home and instantly fell UP the stairs. I don;t drink so its not like I was wasted or anything. I was simply running up the stairs and Turkey got under the chickens feet. Turkey is pictured above. Her full name is Turkey Chicken-Bone Murderface III. She's cute for an asshole. Anyway, my knee is killing me right now.
For the three of you reading this, come to Youngblood tonight and buy krafts!

There will be wine and beer and snacks aplenty. Did I mention I would be there?

Ah Halloween...its my favorite holiday! I love love love costumes and playing dress-up. This year i decided to be a chicken and it was sooo easy and comfortable! I'm sick of the slutty pirates, the sexy devils, the naughty whatevers...I go practical and funny.
You may ask yourself "How did she make that awesome costumes?" Well, I'll tell you.
You need certain supplies: feather boas, a white hoodie, a tutu, aluminum foil, masking tape and spray paint, and some tights (optional). I found my white hoodie at the thrift store for 3 bucks. I attached 2 large boas to it with safety pins. The first went down the arms and the second went around the hood and down the fronts. Next I attached 2 large boas and 2 skinny boas to the tutu. I would have just used large boas but Atlanta is out of white boas.
To make the mark I smashed some aluminum foil to my face, then i carefully removed it, cut out eyes and then coated it- front and back- with masking tape. This makes it sturdy. I tied some elastic to it, spray painted it white with an orange beak and then tapes a couple of stray feathers to it for good measure. While i was spray painting, I misted some tights with orange. They used to be a gross super-bright yellow and after my other tights blew out, I went with these. (Note: it is not advisable to spray paint tights while you are wearing them. I now have Linsey Lohan colored polka dots all over my lower half and I have to go to the gynecologist for my annual exam tomorrow - sorry TMI.) The costume took me a while to collect the pieces but really could have been assembled in a few easy hours in front of the TV.
To the left, I am showcasing 2 other awesome handmade costumes. The rainbow and the pot of gold (with their signature leprechaun) were awesome. So were the garden gnomes and their wizard. A++++ on all counts!

I love this photo! This is Babcia and Dzaidek. Those aren't their names, but rather it means grandma and grandpa in Polish. They are Sarah's grandparent's and they are awesome. I recently met this adorable couple on a trip to NC to visit the NC State Fair, Claire, the lemurs, and the bees.
Babcia and Dzaidek are amazing and strong people. They told me (in strong Polish accents) about the German's taking them from Poland to work on the farms at age 16. After the war was over they were allowed to go anywhere. But they feared that going home to Poland would result in going home to Siberia because Poland was run by Russia at the time. They told of how incredibly hard it was when they got here, they knew no one and no one would help them with anything. Hearing her speak about the past and how hard it was to get by here with nothing- no spoon, no oven, no English. I'm so glad I met this amazingly sweet and strong little couple. They make me wish I had really known my own grandparents.

Here's a nice shot of the tissue covers I made for those little kleenex packs we carry in our purses. You can buy them on my etsy shop. Heh heh, what a disgustingly shameless plug.
