The red velvet cheesecake was good, but it didn't help with the grinchyness.

We have a holiday potluck tomorrow at work. I wasn't going to bring the cheese ball I made last year, because I didn't think folks ate that much of it. It seemed like everyone mostly ate the entrees that folks bought, which makes sense because it's more of an appetizer.

I talked to my assistant and said I was thinking of bringing a cheese cake instead this year, because I didn't think it made sense to serve an appetizer at the same time you are serving lunch (and there is so much food).

She said, uhhh, no people mentioned the cheese ball ... they want the cheese ball. That was last week. Just right now, I just saw a guy in the hallway and he asked if I was going to it and asked if I was bringing the cheese ball.

I am going to put it out in the office before lunch ... so folks can snack on it throughout the morning, tho.

I have to make it tonight.

True. But this is normal JANUARY weather.
And down here, we aren't getting anything!
After braving MN and Boston (right before the storm--8 with windchill), I want at least 50, lol.

I have cute new winter clothes.
Wore my new adorable cloche hate and had so many remarks. Weird.

He's the creep who mentions her name just about every day ... still to this day accuses everyone of being her ... still blogs about her. Yet, you ask me why it still eats at me, when I couldn't give a eff and only ever mention her to poke fun of his creepy obsession.
Tell us, how many times have you sent money to Nigeria, Tonka?

We had Diwali celebrations all last month. Pretty sure nobody will flinch at the word "Christmas" for this month's parties.

I'm in it for the free food only for both...

And I'm fine with that. Happy Diwali to all! Happy Kwanzaa! I'm in it for the food! All I ask for is Christmas! Fair enough?

See, I don't think anyone cares. No one, no group, spoke out in offense about people saying Merry Christmas and offices holding Christmas parties, and that's why America is changing its policy. What happened is, a group sat around THINKING sht up and decided that saying Merry Christmas could be offensive and we shouldn't say it anymore. Then the idea, for some reason, in the name of "fairness," took off.

Same with raising the minimum raise to $15 dollars an hour. Do you think some teenager ran to his parents and started a group and marched on Washington to get it raised? No. The same group that decided we shouldn't have Christmas also decided that minimum wage should be raised ridiculously.

Again, for some reason, what should have been laughed off, is actually gaining support!

But thankfully, it's a small group that's just screaming loud, and eventually they will be eradicated soon.

/Sorry, end rant. I just get a little defensive around this CHRISTMAS season.

How big is the puppy? There is puppy pads. That works well for little dogs. Of course, once the weather gets nicer that another habit the dog may have you have to break.
I think the in-laws kept their chihuahuas on puppy pads even after the weather cleared. But then, they have a utility room in the basement that works ok for that on a long-term basis...

Sounded to me like he was agreeing with Ferrerman that I should let it go. Maybe he just didn't express himself clearly.

We have folks from many cultures and a handful of Indian guys who usually participate. I love Indian food.

Sorry. I assumed he was responding to something from today. But even so, you still puzzle me in that you even visit his blog. Seems like going out of your way.

No worries. I don't go on his blog anymore and I only went on it rarely in the past.

<quoted text>Yet you saw the need to jump on him without even thinking! Are you feeling a little guilty about something? You still post with Angelique. race did too for quite some time after she played nearly everyone here. A few years ago you saw a conspiracy of people who were here at that time, led by 'her'. Now you run around the internet with a person you don't even know, who used to write not-so-secret stories about you with a vibrator up your butt, "Yekim". That's the company you choose to keep. And 'she' is still upset with Ferrerman and uses you to try and make it personal. And you went to law school? Sheesh!
If I blame her for anything, itís for ever getting close enough to you, trusting that you werenít a loon, and doing whatever number she did on your head (itís actually kind of impressive, even if the results are totally creepy), to make you obsessed with her, and me by association.

Youíd think if you were gonna be psycho and jealous of someone, when it comes to Angelique that you would stalk, bother, and pester the guys she flirts with on here, instead of me.

Or what about Race (sorry, buddy ;P)? He always seemed much closer to her than little old me. She never wrote bad stories about him. I think she was always canoodling with him in her stories Ö me I had a vibrator in my butt and was locked up in a cage, like Hannibal Lecter.

So, Iím waaaaaaaaaaaaaay down on the Angelique totem pole. Iím clearly not stalker worthy. So, now that I've explained this, I'm ready to accept your apologies so long as they are genuine.

:D

Now I'm confused, I thought the other dude was the one spouting off about the shrink. He is the only one I ever see mentioning her/him/it.

Well, I never said I was the brightest crayon in the box...

What could anyone possibly write bad about me? I only remember stories about rabbits and fences, and of course my own take on woodstock with rosie odonnel. But I dont retain much of what I read hear anyway, thats why you all are always so fresh and interisting.

<quoted text>So were you lying about not reading the blog? Or was it spin? There's nothing wrong with reading or not reading the blog but, lying about it is a poor character trait and doesn't help your story much.
It's no lie ... I have rarely gone on it. When you first started it I would go on and read your blogs pretty regularly, but I rarely go on it anymore.

When someone mentions something about it on here, I might go on to see what they are talking about, but Iím not eagerly awaiting your posts or a regular reader.

I also never said there is anything wrong with reading a blog.

So donít care. You will have to find someone else to discuss your obsession with.

<quoted text>Well, 4 page views yesterday and 11 for the month. Today's the tenth. Do the math.
The only time I visit is when someone mentions something about it on here (which is rare). Then, I might go on to see what they are talking about and read the comments, which are really just an extension of topix, but Iím not eagerly awaiting your posts or a regular reader. You could have multiple page views, just because it's left open in a browser and it auto-refreshes or because you've read the comments in a few different postings and returned to the main screen each time. Each time you return to the main screen it would come up as a page view.

Tonka seems to be under the impression that I am an avid reader of it and log onto it every day, week, or even every month.

I also never said there is anything wrong with reading a blog.
