Happy New Year and Whatnot

ringing in the New Year my favorite way...
in sweatpants, on the couch with Hub
(who made that face on purpose)


love us

A blog posse met up today at Thai Chili Gardens (yum).

We ate, we talked loudly, we laughed. I over shared as usual (like people need to know that my dad was married twice, or that my mom had 4 kids in 5 years, or that I weighed almost 10 lbs at birth and got put on goat's milk because I barfed so much). Someday I'll learn how to filter this crap out and have a meaningful conversation...someday. I apologize for those of you sitting at the table with me and thanks for the courtesy laughs.

Anywho, meeting up with these women is kind of funny because you can't help but feel like you're in one giant commercial (except it was only women and none of us have romantic feelings for one another, at least I hope not). Instead of being matched on 7 different dimensions of compatibility or whatever, we're matched on how often we read another's blog, how funny we think the other person is, and on a scale of 1 to 10 how likely we think we are to be friends with that person in the "real world" and other stuff like that. Then we decide we want to meet and then we have a big girl date and then happiness ensues and new friendships are solidified. Genius.

It was a good old time, even though I didn't get to know those sitting at the opposite ends of the table. Muchas Gracias to Azucar over at the Jet Set for masterminding the whole thing and for bringing homemade marshmallows (yah, homemade, not jet puffed) for everyone!

a cry in the night

Dear Television Writers and Studio Heads of America,

I am begging you to kiss and make up.

These re-runs are slowly sucking the life force out of my soul.

yours most thoughtfully,

an ode to the holidays

Twas the night before Christmas
and all through the townhouse

the creatures were snoring
Gus, out cold on his couch

the loot was all wrapped
wedged under the tree
pine needles falling
stupid, dead tree should've been free

too much money spent
too many stores shopped
my visa is maxed
my credit is shot

the festivities have all but come to an end
we've partied
we've ate
'till my waist will no longer bend
we love you dear Christmas
for all of this fun
but we're even more grateful
for sending to us His son
we give thanks for His love
and for this time of year
for our families and tender ones
for the glorious holiday cheer
so be joyous and be happy
sleep well this night
and remember a baby
wrapped up warm and tight
give your thanks to the man
for the life that he lived
pattern yours rightly so
that you can continue to give
keep all this in mind
as your day unfolds
Merry Christmas to all!!
stay out of the cold!!

Have a super fantastic Christmas!!

love Kalli

things I don't understand

Fidel Castro
how is he not dead yet?
he's like Tupac, but not

the plexiglass heel
a not so successful merge of strippers and suburbia

Hot Topic
stupidest store on the planet

Creepy Burger King Dude

October Road
why is this show on??
better yet,
why am I watching it?
(I blame Hub for going on a man-date with his boyfriend Jesse, it gets ugly when I'm left to my own devices)
Sticker Effigies
I once saw a Nascar themed one, no joke

and in closing:
those who clog up the aisles at Target
why can we not have order at this holy place?

Half A. Christmas Light Displays
seriously people, it's not that hard to string it in a
straight line
blinky lights are not cool
they cause seizures, I swear

The Jazz Bear
I keep hoping he'll run himself over on that Harley, maybe take out a few cheerleaders with him

Utah Female News Anchors
who styles these women??

and I'm done
