I need motivation today

Last night I went to a friend's house to watch the local Christmas telethon and had a few drinks. Didn't get home until 1:30am and Dave was still out in the garage working on his truck. I am beginning to wonder if he'll ever finish it. He originally told me that it would only take a couple weeks but the two weeks are almost up and it doesn't look anywhere near done to me. But what do I know, I'm just a girl.

The telethon is normally a big event at Howie and Nicky's house with a bunch of us getting together for drinks, food and generally laughing at the people that get drunk and perform on the local cable channel. There were only five of us this year but we still had a nice time. The highlight of the telethon every year is Phylius. We're guessing that he's around 50 years old and he's mentally challenged (is that the PC term). Every year he sings the same three songs, Ain't Gonna Rain No More, They're Gonna Put Me in the Movies, and Hey, Hey, Hey, It's a Beautiful Day. After he sings his three songs he presents a check on behalf of the Native band from the Reserve. He's always been my favorite. Last night I learned something about Phylius that has shattered my image of him. Apparently Phylius likes porn. I'm trying to erase that from my memory but I haven't been successful so far. We also came to the conclusion that, for a small community, we have a lot of very talented musicians. Singers, not so much.

So this morning I woke up around 9am (which is quite late for me these days) but it was cold so I stayed in bed and read the latest Suzanne Brockmann book that my sister lent me. She got it from the library so I have to finish it quickly. I thought it was about 10:30am when I started thinking I should get up but was shocked to find out that it was almost noon. I made toasted westerns for brunch and then Dave disappeared back out to his truck and left me sitting here wondering what I should try to accomplish today.

Things I really should be doing rather than sitting in front of the computer...

  1. Put up the tree and decorate for Christmas.
  2. Laundry - I have managed to wash two loads so far.
  3. Clean the kitchen.
  4. Cook something healthy for supper.
  5. Figure out what to buy people for Christmas.
Instead I feel like curling up in a blanket and finishing my book and then having a nap or maybe scrapbooking for a while.

So is it going to shatter your image of me if I tell you that I like porn? I'm mentally challenged, or at least I have been told by plenty of people around here.

What's a toasted western?

And I have to say, I am shocked, SHOCKED! to learn that Carey likes porn. You think you know someone, and then BAM! you learn something like this.

Well don't tell anyone, Arkie. It's a secret.

Anyone else, no. Phylius, yes.

I had a feeling someone would ask what a toasted western was and I almost explained it earlier. It's an omlette type sandwich with chopped up ham in it. I think it's another Canadian thing.

I think you should curl up and read, lights. Do your work tomorrow.

Too late mm. I managed to pry myself away from the computer and got the first four things done. Tree's up, laundry's done, kitchen's clean and I made pot roast for supper. I even managed to print out the emailed Christmas lists so now I just have to decide what to buy everyone. I'm pooped.

Tomorrow I'll read and nap.

Good grief, how productive are you? Congratulations on getting so much done!

Tomorrow I am going to watch Eric put up Christmas lights, and maybe make some cookies.

Will you be making these cookies from a sitting position?

I've got heartburn so bad today you'd think I was pregnant. Even after two Losecs. When I was pregnant I had a bottle of liquid Divol beside the bed and would chug it in the middle of the night.

Woohoo! Toronto wins! *waves @ Coco*

I did not make cookies. I sat with my feverish child (why would a 39.2 fever come out of nowhere? why?) and watched Barbie and the Magic of Pegasus while the electricity genius struggled with the Christmas lights.

Hey! We watched the Barbie/Pegasus movie too! I thought of Arkie the whole time!
