Chinese boiled peanuts are delicious.

Whoever decided that we should offer BOGO holiday drinks this weekend is a HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE PERSON.

When people are getting something for free, they turn into whiny, bratty children. Y'all are grown adults! Calm down, put on your big boy/girl pants, and speak to me like the human that I am. Ok?
Actually, I have to make your drink for you whether you follow these instructions or not. But still, it'd be nice.

ETA: Also, I don't make the rules. Which means I can't bend or break them just for you. 'Kay?

Um, in other news... Today, I overflowed a coffee airpot. I didn't realize someone had already brewed a pot in there... So. The coffee went EVERYWHERE. Under the coffee brewer, in a drawer, under said drawer... And it all happened 5 minutes before I had to leave. Which means I was attempting to clean up scalding hot coffee with paper towels in a quick and orderly manner. Didn't work out so well. My skin is still a little stained.

Awe, SCG that stinks. I always try to be so patient with people when I'm ordering something or checking out and at Starbucks in Target last week the woman in front of me was SO incredibly nasty with the barista. The woman made such an ass of herself over absolutely nothing.

I don't know why thinking about boiled peanuts led to thinking about Taiwanese grilled corn and now I want Taiwanese style grilled corn. Imma have to buy some soybean paste and go at the corn we have at work.

One of my favorite blogs has a hate-on for Cassandra Clare, citing bad writing, but turns out it's deeper than that, based on this post which she reblogged:

An American in Britain

Wow. Now I see why she refuses to hear anything about the upcoming movie.

Some people there still don't have power and many businesses are closed. I was actually sent to Seagate, the next neighborhood over from Coney Island that was also hard hit. Had never set foot there before today. It's a gated community and they controlled who was able to enter. The need is too great over there right now for them to restrict who can enter so I was able to go right on through. The wall separating Seagate from Coney Island was destroyed. I helped a family over there clean up. It was a tremendous experience. Their house was right next to the beach and was totally damaged. Back door ripped off, debris and sand all over the house, no running water, you name it. I and several other volunteers swept up the house and cleared a lot of the debris. The family's house still isn't that habitable but it looked halfway decent. They were so grateful. I was very moved by it all. Why can't people look past our differences and be this helpful and grateful all the time?
what a wonderful, generous thing to do. I wish I could do more from here in Ca. My family is originally from Brooklyn, my aunt lives in Rockaway, Queens, which was so devastated by flood and fire. Again' thank you.

house temperature is a constant debate here. I hate the cold, DH hates the warm. We rarely need the AC here in SoCial, which is a relief to me, and we used the heat for the first time this fall just a few days ago, and that was to warm it up first thing in the morning. (house was 60 degrees!)

but I agree that cooler is better at night. I don't mind using multiple blankets and I think I sleep better in the cooler temps. I also agree with the no socks at night thing. I just cannot sleep in them. Interestingly, DH does wear sock at night, all year long. He once read or heard that people who sleep in socks live longer. I don't know how though, if they can't get any sleep!

I just googled. That was so much worse than I assumed. How do you get a horse to do that to a person?

I kind of hate you right now.

the house i have wanted to own for the past 40 years since i first laid eyes on it is for sale!

my sister told me that she went shopping downtown yesterday because mom is well enough to not need constant tending and there's a For-Sale sign on the lawn.

on Lakeshore Boulevard West, all the way around Humber Bay going toward the part of the city my family has always lived in, there is one row of houses that can only be called mansions. they all date to the late 1800s/early 1900s. the biggest one was bought by the Polish government after the communists were routed and it became their consulate in Toronto.

i briefly worked at a summer job with a young man who lived in one of those houses (about 30 years ago); it had belonged to his great-grandparents. he was acting as a care-taker because his grandfather was in a nursing home. years later, the house was abandoned and fell into disrepair. maybe it really was haunted, like my former co-worker said. it was sold a few years ago and torn down for a monster house.



right next door to that house is a smaller red brick one with a gorgeous conservatory on one side. i remember going past that house for years seeing tall palm fronds scraping the glass ceiling of that conservatory. the house backs on to the lake and has an unobstructed view across the bay to the city. there is a perfect view of every major fireworks show.

at some point in the past 10 years, this house, too, was abandoned.

and now it's for sale - for

$2,388,000



and i'd be willing to be that whoever buys it, will tear it down and put up a monster house.



even if my office pool won the lottery on Friday night, my share wouldn't be enough money for me to buy and restore the house.

*sigh*

I was reading the location, Rou, and thinking I need to get into the court system if she is buying down there!

I wonder if it's old enough to be placked?

it's your Sunday 50 Sheds of Grey!

'I'm your slave,' she said breathlessly, 'Make me feel completely helpless and worthless.' So I locked her in the shed and went to the pub.
