It's freezing in here!

Wow. Christmas was fun. Crazy, but fun. My Grandma's out of town this week and I spent all day yesterdsay hiding out at her place watching TV and playing around on the internet. It was quiet and... well, quiet! No one but my sweet boy knew where I was and it was lovely. I found an excellent game on www.shockwave.com called Diner Dash. I must have played for two hours. Now I want to open my own diner. It'd be the best diner ever. We'd have greasy burgers and crispy fries. I'd hire an old guy named Joe to work the grill and I'd don vintage dresses and change my name to Flo or maybe Doris. I wonder what I'd call it... Any suggestions?

Dishes, so many dishes.

Today I cooked brunch for five immediately followed by Christmas dinner for eight. It was amazing. It was akin to working retail at the Eaton Centre at Christmas time. I was going a mile a minute for hours and didn't get tired only because I didn't have a chance to! I had a blast. Tomorrow I help my mom to prepare another full turkey dinner for seven more. I love Christmas!

Why did I do this to myself?

I have to go to the Eaton Centre tonight.

Where do you live? There's a fantastic gentleman, Mr. Anton Kozlik, who sells mustard at the St Lawrence Market. Wait... what's this?? He's got a website! www.mustardmaker.com He's a lovely old gentleman who brings the whole family to work. He’s got a sweet little mustache and wears bow ties. “Get your mustard!!” He hollers. I’ve bought jar after jar. I recommend the Double C. A classic. Anton made sure to tell me that he puts a whole bottle of Canadian Club whisky in every batch of the Triple Crunch. I recently bought a jar of the Herbed Rosemary. (which I don’t see on the website) Old Smokey made me sad I’d already made my purchase. Delicious!! It will be my next jar. At the market booth, they offer all their mustards for tasting. There are pretzel sticks, which I suppose make a good dipper, but they’ve got nothing on the tiny cubes of freshly fried up peameal bacon offered on tooth picks. I can’t tell you how lovely the XXX Hot feels slamming against the back of your throat. If you don’t live in the Greater Toronto area, I insist you send away for a jar of Mr. Kozlik’s mustard. There’s a little bit of love in every one.

Solid as a Rock.

Today I am itching for some Arrested Development. I need to see the intro to GOB’s magic act. I want a little bit of Michael Cera delivering George Michael’s lines with perfect comedic timing. I’ve got to have a Michael Bluth ‘pause to reflect.’ I’m dyin’ here! Fox, don’t do it!!
