Games


Start playing Call of Juarez Gunslinger, so far pretty awesome. Love the storyline, westerns just happen to be my guilty pleasure, awesome art, good game play and slightly intense.

Jeans


Jeans...for some people dressing in business attire is so rare it's special when they do so. For me? That's what wearing jeans is like. I don't find them particularly comfortable and finding ones that fit properly is an never ending challenge. I have a few pairs I like and they do get worn on days off with my t-shirts!

Thankful






Holidays are done, a new year is about to begin. Had some time off from work this week and today is my day to cover the office and catch up. Actually so thankful I have a job I enjoy!

Thankful

I'm so thankful to move forward and away from the holidays. Too much visiting, too much eating, it's really just another day. Let us stay with the theme though and I'll leave these here...


YES!

Merry Xmas

Move on...

Real life has been keeping me far too busy lately. Things just keep happening and piling on, are we done yet? But I'm still here. Way behind in work so today it's just me at the office, "Raging Through the Ages" station blaring...and GO! Some great nostalgic hits going on.

Which one doesn't belong?


A weird discovery in my dishwasher detergent container. I feel the need to share this experience for some reason!

Love it when this happens actually...

Gaming!

Gasp, played 13 hours of games in the past week. What's happening!? Love some of the screens I get.


What happened here?



Slacking on the job...



Love those stats.



Ouch

Thoughtful

I'm a big believer in gifting properly or not at all. Drives me crazy when someone gifts just to gift and gifts something the person will never actually use. Like scented candles or tea. At least those are things I dislike receiving. Then, once in a while, someone proves they really do know what you like! My co-worker gifted me an awesome mug as she knows I drink coffee. She even made sure there were no guns displayed on the mug so that I could use it at work! Perfect.

Ta-da! 

So epic.

Baby it's cold outside!

Brrrrrr, that struggle of wanting to wear my shirts in the winter. This will work...


Oh Hexxus


I don't know enough about US politics and what's actually happening down there...BUT...I watched Fergully A LOT in my life. Hexxus will do fine...

Well that escalated...

Told my stylist I'm low on funds and also want to save for my cosplay and trip to the expo. Booked an appointment for right before the expo to do something epic. Then we got to talking. I went in thinking she'd go back to my natural color, or just touch up my roots. No, instead she ads streaks, darkens my roots and tones the rest for an amazing deal. Score!


Sales

I hate these e-mails when I have no money...someone tell me this game is awful so I'm not sad I cannot splurge on it today. Due to car trouble/maintenance costs in November, it's no games or eating out in December. I've made it this far with only buying a few coffees from change in my wallet/car.



Hair day!


Sadly no fun new colors today. Need to lower my maintenance costs to save for the Expo. I'll do something epic in 4 months. Now to tell my stylist the 3 hours she booked for me aren't going to be used up with a cool dye job...

Yum...

Best end to a hell of a three week stretch at work? Steak for supper...just steak. An amazing gigantic sirloin steak from our family farm. Montreal steak spice, BBQ and I'm good to go. Yum. All I'm missing is an amazing merlot!

Less F*cks to be Given

My book club book this month? The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck by Mark Manson, really looking forward to reading this one. I'm also the first one in the group to choose a self help book. Figured this was a great start.

Food

My favorite thing to make when I have lettuce that is starting to wilt. Lettuce soup. Now don't be shied away, this soup is surprisingly amazing. If you like soup.

  • 2 tbsp of olive oil in a soup pot
  • 1 onion sliced (if I have no fresh onions I throw in a few tsp dried onion)
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley or 1 tsp dry
  • 1 tbsp chives
  • 2 heads, or so, romaine lettuce chopped 
  • 4 cups chicken stock (I use 4 cups water and 2 bullion cubes if I don't have my own stock)
I cook everything in the oil until the lettuce is wilted. Then I add the stock and boil a bit. I blend carefully in my blender, I use a Blendtec and it works amazing for creamy soup. If I didn't have such a good blender I'd probably lower stock by 1 cup and add 1/2 cream after blending to thicken. 

After blended I put back in the pot and throw in some Swedish meatballs. Wish I had leftovers, could use the comfort food now! Mmmmmm...




Save my kitty...

No thanks...

I don't really want to piss on Santa, thanks though.


YES!

I had no idea this was coming down the pipeline. A new OK Go video. These guys always amaze me. Yet again a video to blow us out of the water.

Tunes

I wanted to share this groovie tune but since I cannot embed from Google Play here is the YouTube video...which is not available in Canada. Sorry! I hope those who CAN hear it enjoy!

Best marinade

I have to share this one as it is one of my favorites. I've never been good at cooking roasts. As I get beef from our family farm I end up with a lot of roasts that I usually try and cook but never turn out great. After finding this marinade, I have since to make a bad roast.


Yummmmmmmm

  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • Salt and pepper if desired
I put this all in a large Ziploc freezer bag with the roast, put it in the fridge overnight and the next day prior to cooking for dinner. Turning it over occasionally. I cook the roast dependent on the cut. This one was particularly fatty so I cooked it low for longer. I pour the sauce and roast into a baking dish and the sauce is great on rice. Enjoy!

Shirts

Monday, great shirt to cheer me up. On my days off I tend to pick the shirt based on how I anticipate the day to go! Brought my car in for routine work and of course they found things that needed to be fixed. Good news is I had the service shuttle drop me off at home instead of work. You need me to come in? Oh man I'm sorry I have no vehicle. Hello Borderlands 2 all morning!


Shirts

For financial reasons, and lack of closet space, I decided to take a break from buying new t-shirts. Then the other night I'm checking e-mail before bed, Etsy pops up on my phone that my favorite shops have some new items. Next thing I know I'm browsing Etsy in random shops and come across the most amazing mashup design. Suddenly I'm searching for it on my favorite tshirt site and am shocked to find it. Well...


Cannot wait for it to come in! Last one...for a while. I promise.

Practicality

Went out last night and was reminded how much I love this bag. Hands free, my wallet and phone are safely strapped to me, so practical and looks sexy as hell.
