Post Poblano

So, December is here now – see?

And it’s the end of Nano Poblano. Did you manage to make it through the whole month? 

I feel like I met some awesome people and I want to thank Rarasaur for that.  If not for her encouragement and … social butterfly-ness, I probably wouldn’t have.  I still don’t have the extrovert gene and it’s not likely I ever will.  Or the tall gene either, but I digress.  Winking smile

So, thank you, Ra.  *hugs*

That was fun!  Let’s do it again!

Holiday Light Displays

I found this post in my drafts folder, from last year.  I checked the link and it still works, yay!  I love the Christmas lights and the different ways people decorate their homes.  My husband and I used to drive around during the holiday season just to see the lit-up houses, before our son was born. 

Do you put Christmas lights up where you live?  Do you like to drive around just to see the pretty lights?

There’s nothing that says holiday season like a killer display of lights. Sure it’s fun to check out the towering tree as it twinkles in New York City’s Rockefeller Center or the Christmas extravaganza at Disney World. But those aren’t the only spots to see spectacular festive lights. Here are some more off-the-beaten-path, quirky spots to check out holiday lights around the U.S.

What Are The Keys To Your Heart?

While some (not all) of this is true, I can tell you the keys to my heart!  Loyalty, dependability, and doing the right thing.  Captain America has keys to my heart, lol.  Now if only he had brown eyes … Winking smile

Your Heart Takes Love Lightly
You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.
In love, you feel the most alive when things are straight-forward, and you’re told that you’re loved.
You’d like to your lover to think you are stylish and alluring.
You would be forced to break up with someone who was ruthless, cold-blooded, and sarcastic.
Your ideal relationship is open. Both of you can talk about everything… no secrets.
Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.
You think of marriage as something precious. You’ll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.
In this moment, you think of love as something you can get or discard anytime. You’re feeling self centered.

Thanksgiving Divorce

A man in Phoenix calls his son in New York the day before Thanksgiving and says,”I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.

“Pop, what are you talking about?” the son screams. We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,” the father says. “We’re sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her.”

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. “Like heck they’re getting divorced,” she shouts, “I’ll take care of this,”

She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at her father, “You are NOT getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back, and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?” and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. “Okay,” he says, “they’re coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own way.”


This one always makes me chuckle.  Smile

Have an awesome Thanksgiving-leftover-y weekend!
