I suppose I could drone on and on about all the trial and tribulations of my life lately, but I never want to, so meh.  Stuff happens and tomorrow is yucky traditional meal day (I hate most thanksgiving food, blarg :bleh:)(except for mashed potatoes - mashed potatoes are awesome).  Went and saw my Buckeyes lose last week and we couldn't even bitch because it was Penn State and they kept saying be nice to Penn State, so we did.  Work is hell because now we are down 2 people and working with a skeleton crew for the rest of the year.  Not fun, nope nope nope.  But I do hope to see the courthouse lighting on Friday.  So that should be nice.

Anyhoo, siriuslylostwerewolf tagged me with one of those make your own 10 question things, so I guess I will answer them.  But I'm not going to make my own ten because I already did that and I'm lazy.

1) What animal/insect/creature do you most fear?
I don't really have a fear of any particular animal; I like to look at bugs and spiders and creepy crawlies because they are cool looking.  I don't think I'd want to come face to face with a bear or big cat, but I don't fear them in a normal situation.  Large dogs I don't know sometimes put me on edge.  I'm not comfortable with the thought of having my throat ripped out. :noes:

2) If given the choice, do you prefer to drink water or soda/pop?
Like, if I could only have one or the other for all time? :lol: I'd definitely go with water.  I like pop well enough, but I drink a lot more water.

3) Favorite type of candy/ candy bar?
My absolute favorite I can't even eat. Twix bars.  :saddummy: Stoopid allergies.
I like Kit Kat, Reese's Cup, Nestle Crunch, Lindt Truffles, chocolate toffees, French mints, chocolate covered grahams or pretzels.
I miss Skittles and Starburst, 100 Grand bars, Milky Way... stoopid allergies

4) Which language(s) would you like to learn?
Let's see... I've already studied ancient and modern Greek, Latin, German, a little French and Hebrew... how about some Asian languages like Japanese and Chinese, maybe Arabic as well.  Gimme a language, I'll be interested. :nerd:

5) Favorite form of travel?
Car for short distances, plane for long, metro for in the big city.  I miss being able to walk to work.  

6) What is your absolute favorite movie?
Impossible question. But if forced I'd say the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice, since I tend to pick it whenever I'm in the mood for a movie.

7) What is your name?
Tina

8) What is your quest?
To seek the holy grail.

9) What is your favorite color?
Pink... no blue!   (seriously, blue is my favorite color.  I wish this journal skin were blue and not pink.)

10) Aaaand I'm going to steal Sanne's question and ask: What are your favorite boy and girl names?
um um um... Jakob and Lillianna?


And that's all folks.

Anyone going to see the Muppets this weekend?  I wanna see the Muppets.

We're not big on any of the traditional foods either. This year we ended up with shrimp, steak, salmon, and a nice veggie and quinoa for the 7 year old who found out where meat comes from and now refuses to have anything to do with it... I make a huge salad and some home made rolls to finish it off. Works for us.

The kids went with their Nana to see the Muppets. I was so sad I didn't get to go. :( The 13 year old loved it and the 7 year old hated it. I would have gladly taken his ticket and let him sit at home with his dad rewiring the light switch in the spare room!

Is it bad that I laughed that the 7 years old is now a vegetarian? I was never comfortable with eating meat off carcasses myself, so I can understand the little one's plight. :XD:

I still haven't seen the Muppets. :saddummy: I swear I will even if I have to go by myself (and I hate going to the movies by myself).

He is a kick in the pants when it comes to meat. He makes the best faces. It's frustrating but I respect his choices. He doesn't mind me serving it to others, having it near him, or even putting a bit on his plate but for the love of sweet baby Jesus it's not going in his mouth!

Go see the Muppets! You must!

I prefer ham for Thanksgiving but my mom almost hates it (she hates the saltiness. Me too actually but I am slightly more tolerant of it). Sometimes we do a beef roast (got one for Sunday! Yays!). We're having the bathroom redone so I have to be done using it by 8am tomorrow >< I'm lucky if I can haul my butt out of bed by 9! Should be interesting.

I had salmon. I don't like ham, either (I actually don't like any kind of pork). So fish is fine for me for the holidays. I also had mac & cheese, mashed potatoes, and green beans. So it was quite a good meal. Gave my share of the turkey to the kitties. :giggle:

I will definitely not be up by 9 tomorrow, although I better be up by 9 your time because that's when the OSU vs Michigan game starts (noon here). :lol: Our only issue here is there are four of us who have to share one bath.

Heh, sounds good :) Bet the kitties were happy =D

The contractor ended up bailing on us so we had to do the bathroom ourselves. Still in the works but it's coming along. Right now I am on a mid-morning schedule so hopefully I can change that to an early one. I got some Cafe Du Monde French Roast with Chicory coffee that is really good for mornings. Nice and strong =D

Very yummy! Just needs a beignet!

We're still working but the laminated floor just went in (looks like American white cheese >< Kraft quality) so that means that we can bring back the cabinet and do the trimming :dance: Almost there!

You can change the CSS code to blue! But then it wouldn't match the silly pink llama.

I want to watch TV but don't want to wake dad since he hasn't been sleeping well. Otherwise, I could watch the BBC's version of "Pride and Prejudice" :woohoo: :teevee: :film:

I tried that once; turns out the entire border is pink. Only the very middle where the text is is controlled by the CSS. :saddummy: Sadness.

You could watch it on the laptop in a little window and use my earphones. That would work, sort of. :XD:

Yeah. Sort of. I used to do that years ago when I had the TV hooked up to the computer. I would have a show on in a tiny box in the right-hand corner. A bit small to really get the gist of the show :teevee:

The Muppets is number one on my list of movies to see before the end of the year. Not to mention the bonus Toy Story short that plays before it. :XD:

You also went to some convention of some sort where some people said you looked like their mom. And now I"ll read this entry properly.

That is true, and it was horrifying, I tell you! :fear: And I lost my badge. :saddummy: But since I'm a good fairy I suckered them into giving me another for free. So maybe it was ok to look like someone's mom?

Nope, never found it. It must have fallen off somewhere outside and blown away. Or something. :shrug:

Doing anything special for the holiday?

I was just following =siriuslylostwerewolf's lead, since she made the questions. I couldn't resist the answers. :lol:

I bought Reese's trees for my coworkers today. It made everyone happy. Yay candy!
