It's The Most Wonderful Time...

please don't hate on me for having so many holiday-themed entries. i can't help it.

i have lights up at my work station now. and my pod-mates got a wreath for our area, and it's all rather festive and cheery.

and you know what else is great about the holidays? spending time with your family. (you know, like dear aunt flo.) (actually, i was giong to complain about said stupid aunt except how happy am i that she's here NOW and not when i'm sitting on a PLANE for six hours!? LOVE YOU, AF!)

******
now that i have sung the praises of my favorite chore -- doing laundry by saying "here" to the wash and fold lady -- i have fallen woefully behind. i haven't managed to take the time to sort through my closet and determine which articles need to go across the street and which need to be washed RIGHT NOW in my building's laundry (i.e., the delicates, plus whatever needs to be cleaned right away for thursday night. for no particular reason.).

i'm the worst at doing "chores" ever.

******
my friend would like to thank those of you who offered suggestions for what she should wear to meet her boyfriend's parents. i believe she summed up your opinions nicely when she said, "don't dress as Hussy the Homewrecker. got it."

  1. it seems that everyone has one particular chore she can't take. for my sister, it's dishes. according to her, she *physically* can not do them. even if it's just rinsing out a mug that only she uses, she can't. she has to leave it in the sink. she swears it's a physical condition. (and her bf is buying it, too, which makes her brilliant!)

  2. Attention ALL -

    I figured out K's clues. SHE is the one meeting Ish's parents on Thursday night. She gave us careful readers 2 clues.
    K - am I right???

  3. No, no, no. My post was all about dressing as Hussy the Homewrecker! There's nothing that parents like more!!

  5. this might be an inapropriate question single older chick, but do you live near union square? I could have sworn I saw you walking around somewhere near there. I was like "no way"

    Then at the apartment I was staying at 3 blocks from Union Square, there was a post it note that said "UPS man, please deliver the package to the market next door, Kristy" and it seemed like something you would do. Because I know you Oh so well.

  6. Screw laundry. Go shopping.

    That is my mantra. Spread the love.

    Happy Holidays!

  7. Obviously nothing in your closet will do for Thursday night (which is just another celebration of the day before the last day of the week right?) so I second killerchia and say go shopping. It's great.

  8. ooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhh! I like Kirin's theory, though I reread, and I must not be as careful a reader. Anyway, Dress to kill is my advice.

  9. I was scrolling down awaiting a comment to Slopmaster's eloquent beginning of his post "this might be an inapropriate question single older chick..."

    I guess it's not worth a comment. Good intention gone a wry I guess.

  11. You are obviously Aunt Flo's favorite. She always arrives on holidays, birthdays, 'hot' weekends.
    I must have done something to annoy her. :-)

    p.s. really enjoying your enthusiasm for the holidays. don't stop!

  12. Don't apologize, I love entries like this! And btw, you are just about the coolest person ever for quoting Auntie Mame on your sidebar! I love that movie, Rosalind Russell is the best. :)

  13. Yeah Slopmaster dude, that obviously had to be Kristy cause like, there's like only one "older chick" in all of San Fran named Kristy who might live in an apartment bldg without a concierge desk and works during the day so she has to have packages delivered to a near-by business.

  14. Now I finally get this blog.

    I just read a rather x-rated blog of one of k's good friends. K also has a few other blogger friends to whom orgies and other kinky sexual fare are the norm. So K - I think there might be ALOT you are not telling us....you might just have another side, and I am not talking about your Martha Stewart Home side. I am talking about the good vibes side....

  15. well yummy,

    it's true. i know a lot of people in this city, and a lot of them have very interesting lives. and a lot of them are smart and funny and don't sweat the small stuff and have taught me new meanings to the phrase "open-minded."

    but here's something to consider: one of my good friends -- an ex's ex -- lives on a commune and runs a biodiesel co-op. another friend (the ex's ex's ex), worked on the particle accelerator in berkeley. i think they're awesome people and i love spending time with them. doesn't make me a farmer, doesn't mean i'm a physicist.

  16. Oh yeah?! Well then explain that slide rule I spotted in your desk drawer the other week! It's time you came clean with your readers about your true relationship with The Physics™!!!

  17. my favourite chore is mopping the place and my least favourite one is the laundry. mopping is an entire workout, plus it's ok to shake a lil here and there with the mop-stick dancer (",)..but laundry...bleh. you collect everything, sort them out, wash them, take them out to hang, and then bring them back in, and then iron/fold. not that i do do any laundry at home but the number of times i was forced to do it...didn't like it at all.

  18. It's Saturday already! We must know what happened on Thursday night! Hopefully no incidents of breezy elegance?

  19. There is only ONE single older chick in in SF, even if the name doesn't really apply anymore.

    But I've seen pictures of her and her butt, and from those two things, I thought I recognized K walking around near Union Square.

    Now I'm still looking for Mejane.

  20. I heart me some laundry, but then, I hate me some washing the dog.

    I cosign the "dress to kill" suggestion. :)

  22. Wash and fold rules. For those 'other washables' they make this thing called a "dry cleaner" for whom the same princile applys.
    You: "Here."
    DC: "Pick up two three days?"
    You: "Fine"
    See how that works? :-) I spent the entire day yesterday cleaning my GFs townhouse top to bottom after her sister three nephews TRASHED it for a week. She was so suprised to find it clean when she got home from driving them to Boston that...it was a good night for me. Chores can be good! :-)
