I wish that I had something brilliant and beautiful to share with you today. But my head and heart are going a million directions. Nothing really feels succinct. So I’m going to take a cue from my good friend Shrek who wisely said “better out than in, that’s what I always say.” You have my apologies for the randomness of this post.

Topic 1- Family Drama.

Every family who loves each other has some. And families who don’t love each other probably have even more. For the most part, I stay out it because I live in a different area code. But recently someone’s actions caused me to almost hit below the belt. Instead, I’ve decided to stay as far away from the crazy train as I can. Mostly because there are people who are in the same area code who can handle the situation better. I’m looking at you, Uncles (who I feel are kind of more like brothers to me…).

Topic 2- Christmas Music.

The more I hear it, the more I’m pretty sure “Baby It’s Cold Outside” is a song about date rape. For the love of all things holy, girlfriend you are right. Your date has slipped a ruffie in your drink. Stop singing and wondering about it and call yourself a cab. And that fire he’s singing about? It isn’t romantic. It will probably be used to burn the evidence. Your parents are worried. Put on your boots and get the heck out of there ASAP.

Topic 3-Work

I don’t miss it the way I thought I would. I do, however miss my work friends. I miss them A LOT. But, getting laid off is one of the best things that has happened to me in a long time. We are all happier because I am able to be home with Malone during this time.

Topic 4- Trader Joe’s Candy Cane Joe Joe’s.

I want to do sinful things to these like dip them in chocolate and THEN eat them. Or crush them and put them on top of ice cream. Holy moly are these things yummy. If your store has any left, you should get some. I know my store is out because I got some of the last packages. But don’t worry friends and family. I’ve got something special in mind for you unless I eat them all first.

Topic 5- Blogging

Is there anyway to break the feeling of everyone is already best friends in blog land? I read several blogs and just recently made the connection that they are all either friends in real life, or friends via the web. The reasons why I enjoy them all make total sense now. They all have interests similar to mine. How does one make a blog friend without feeling like a creeper?

I don’t have the answers to anything today. If you stuck with me this far, you deserve a gold medal. Or a Candy Cane Joe Joe dipped in chocolate.

I’m linking up today with Shell’s Things I Can’t Say. Hopefully next week I’ll have something more epic to write about. But I do feel better. So thanks!
