now i'm burning Bugsy Malone for Kelli. she has a DVD player in her computer, which is hooked up to her TV. so for xmas i am burning my movie collection and making labels (thank you Tech Fairy) for her. i don't have that many movies. i also have to get my music collection together and get it onto USB stick to send her. and she's going to need Ab Fab and Farscape and, no wait, not Firefly, i burned those for her. so i have some work to do.
doc originally objected to my making labels for disks for him. when that didn't work, he objected to the disks themselves. when he finally figured out i was replacing lost disks for his CD collection, he was touched and stopped making noise about it. he's not ungrateful, just reluctant.
i had a couple of cookies, and i didn't like them, too much vanilla for the mint chocolate m's. then i tried a piece of cake, didn't like that either. the milk tasted off to me, though doc said it was fine. i'm not a great fan of yellow cake. i like chocolate cake and angel food cake. yellow cake tastes like white cake to me and i don't at all like the color. so i'm swearing off xmas treats until i make the candied nuts and fudge. and sugar cookies, that's a new recipe, i have to try those.
i think i'm just minted out with the whole candy cane in the coffee thing. i want pure flavors. that's why the recipe for the nuts has to be gotten from my mom, it has to be the original recipe. i've been reading others on the web, and i can't find one like the original. they call for egg whites or milk or something equally silly. and i need to get a candy thermometer. i could do the nuts by sight and smell, but i need the thermometer for the fudge, since i've never made it before.
i took an adorable picture of doc sleeping with Chewy yesterday. i'm thinking of framing it and sending to his parents on the sly for the holidays. but doc would be furious. he just won't let me take his picture when he's awake. ever. it's annoying. i have all these pictures of the animals and such and none of him awake. i take pictures of him sleeping all the time. he says it's creepy, which it might be, but i have no other way of remembering him. he takes pictures of me asleep with the animals all the time. what do i know, i sleep on camera. i'm not one to judge what "regular" people want.
i had a dream i met a girl who wanted to watch Kitchen Nightmares with me. i fell in love. i remember that. i had my laptop with me somewhere and she asked me if i had any episodes. i don't remember if it was just out of the blue, or if that's what the dream started with or what. strange i remember that now after waking up so many hours ago.
doc and i are going to go do laundry again today. whee. i don't want to go. the only bra i have to wear is that horrible Ah Bra that is nothing more than a skin tight thing. boob loaf. one big boob. i hate them. worst $15 i ever spent.
