{December 5, 2006}   Just Call Me Jughead.

The Archies comics always have the character of Jughead eating. And eating hamburgers most of the time. And that I did. Morning, Noon and Night. I would make myself two hamburgers with lettuce, extra cheese, onions, mustard, ketchup, pickles, and potatochips. I had times when I ate them more then once a day, and always two, sometimes three at a time. There was always a frypan sitting on the back burner of the stove with melted cheese and bits of onion in it and a spatula sitting beside it. When it came to making hamburgers, no one, and I mean no one on our block could do better. When one of my friends was pregnant 12 years ago with her daughter it was my hamburgers that she craved the entire time. To the point one night around 11pm she called me saying she was coming over with the ingredents for burgers cause she didnt just want drivethru or anyone else to make her “just a burger”. I ended up becoming a 300pound woman with bad skin in part to my love of hamburgers and anything made with hamburger. 4 years ago I gave them up. I went vegetarian. I still crave burgers but not to the extent I used to. I am thinking it must be the same of an addiction, you never really stop wanting what you are addicted to. I do enjoy trying to find a decent veggy burger, but it will never be the same. But at lest now I am a much happier, healthier, trimmer woman at a nice 138pounds with much much better skin too!

Well, it was something I have been dreading for years, but I needed to come clean with my mom about my life. I have been an occultist (pagan, witch, spellworker, wiccan whichever term you feel good with) for almost 20 years. Mom did not take it well.
At first she was afraid I was going to tell her I was pregnant or into chicks or something but when I told her that I am an occultist she broke down crying. (she was very relieved to find out I am straight but right away started with “when will you give me a grandchild then?” and “why can’t you find a husband?”)
So her way of dealing with it is to make really bad jokes about it. Everytime now when we talk she will say stuff like “Oh they better not piss you off, cause you’re a witch, put a hex on them” which is not feeling the greatest, but I suppose it’s her way of dealing with it.
Blessed it Be!

How do you see yourself when you get married?
I had a woman say to me awhile back that she pictured me with the whole white church wedding. Which is as anyone who knows me just not me. She was shocked when I said I would be fine with an Drive-thru-Love-Me-Tender-Vegas-Elvis wedding, and I am not even an Elvis fan. I am always fascinated by what other women decide to do with their wedding day. Most of the females in my family had the large frilly-white wedding that was planned since they could walk. I am interested in how people are viewing the celeb weddings we keep reading about in the gossip/news. I was reading just now about the wedding of Tom Cruise this weekend, and how some of the vows might include “a cat”. Seems silly to me, but then again so does white frilly dresses that you pay $400.000 for and wear once.

Why does things like this happen?

I just met the greatest guy ever, he’s charming, funny, smart, down to earth, and a priest. That’s right, He has devoted himself to his spiritual belief. He has in the last 8 months become my closest friend and I thought even husband material until I found out two days ago he has become a priest.

Why do the Goddess/God laugh at me this way? I thought I would never fall in love again after my ex left me, and just when I gave up I met this guy. Now I find out I can not have him.

So I have come now to my crossroads where I am saying, I want more! I hate, just hate the city I am in. Its the same city I have lived my whole life. Eventhough I have a diploma from college 10 years ago, the area I took doesnt really exist anymore, and have been outright laughed at for the college I went to. Was told a few years ago that the only thing that diploma is good for is maybe getting me past the entrence exam without having to take it. Great, thanks alot for the info. I dont really know what I want to do with the remainder of my life, other then I want to have a family of my own, and a house. So have been looking into university courses. There are three schools that I am considering applying to for the 2007 or 2008 fall. One in Montreal, one in Edmonton, and one in Vancouver. They all offer the same course -all listed under different names go figure- but the one in Vancouver also offers a second course that I wouldnt mind taking. Just not too sure how I feel about Vancouver. I have to ask myself why go back to school? My answers seem almost mundane. 1) It seems to be the thing one is suppose to do when trying to change one’s life. 2) It seems like an easy way to get out of this city, giving me a reason and location. 3) This time I would take a course that would lead to something more then just a diploma. 4) I would meet new fresh people . So that is where my turn has taken me on my path at the moment, and I am guessing its something I should be strongly considering, otherwise I wouldnt have come back to the thought so much in the last few months.

My first attempt to make a pie failed. I had a container of grapefruit and orange slices that I needed to finish up so I thought fruit pie.
The crust was good then again it was storebought so it should have been. I followed the recipe for peach pie in one of my cookbooks subsituting the peaches for the citrus slices.

Preheat oven to 400’c, bake shell for 10 mintues, mix fruit with vanilla, sugar, cornstarch. Fill shell cook for 15minutes

I just didnt put enough sugar in it so it came out bitter. Otherwise, I made my first pie today.

{December 5, 2006}   Blonde and Bare

Okay so the big deal is that now Britney is playing peekaboo with the fans. Seems our favourite popdiva is deciding to run around in public without her underwear. Hell why not? She has already been caught on camera running around public bathrooms without shoes. Which I think would be more of a reason to have expected this. Bad taste? Maybe, maybe not, Unhygienic Like For Sure. On the shockometer I give this a 4.9 out of 10.
