shopping is almost done, and now i just have to plan tori's class Christmas party (why did I choose this holiday to plan???) and get some crafts and baking done for the holidays. i'm thinking that i need some new cookie recipes. any ideas??? tori asked me today if Santa likes cookies or brownies or cake. unfortunately he likes them all. i hope she doesn't plan on us making all of them for him. oh, speaking of the big guy, a friend of mine forwarded this link to me where the little ones can email Santa directly and get a response back. way cool site.
okay, so i was looking through the t.v. guide so i could figure out what to dvr for the next few weeks, and i find it so frustrating that everything is reruns already. this darn writer's strike has ruined the season for some of my favorite shows. seriously, give them their money already. the stations are going to start suffering as far as their sponsors go. so annoyed. and while i'm, on this little rant, i have decided that this season was officially the last of my watching the Bachelor. how ridiculous is it that this guy goes through the motions for who knows how many weeks, and acts like he is going to propose (literally went and bought the ring), then sends both girls home packing. and the most ridiculous part of the whole thing is that one of the girls said she was hoping that he would change his mind and still want her a few months later. SERIOUSLY!!!! girl get a clue. so ABC has messed up yet again and i am done with this show.
so yesterday i was talking with my sister and the topic of the Golden Compass came up. She asked if i had heard about the movie, and then told me about the writer of the trilogy. here is a link to the whole story. Golden Compass Story Read for yourself, but from what i hear, it definitely is not a children's movie, although it is portrayed as such. apparently it is very gory and bloody... not at all for kids. how frustrating is it that movie companies are so interested in making movies, that they jeopardize the children who are going to see it. this will definitely be one which will be banned from our house.
okay, i am off to get some laundry done.
have a good evening.
