T-Day Minus Nine Hours

Pumpkin pie from scratch - check!

Ingredients for pancakes (including real maple syrup) - check!

Totally awesome pink flannel Princess Leia pajama bottoms*- check!

Clean apartment - ... I can just throw it all in the spare room and run the sweeper before everyone gets here for the Pajamas, Pancakes, and Parade Potluck Brunch.

*I ran out of time to make the matching pajama top for tomorrow, but I can always wear that old Starfleet Academy tshirt I bought at my very first Star Trek convention, back in... 1992. Sure, it's mixing genres, but I think that ought to just up my geek points. Right?

Playing Grownup

I can remember when my parents were the age that I am, now. Heck, I can rememberme when my parents were the age I am, now.

They had college degrees, careers, two cars, a house, and three kids.

I have a college degree, an incomplete graduate degree, a car, an apartment, and fish.

I can't help but think that I"m just not doing something right.

First off, every time I host friends, I feel the same way I used to when I played house as a kid - that it's just pretend.

That being said, since I and other people have mid-day and dinner invitations for Thanksgiving, I am hosting brunch, instead. We will sit around in our pajamas, and make pancakes and watch the Macy's parade.

I'm pondering also making candied sweet potatoes... using Peeps instead of marshmallows...

Battlestar Galacteaca

So, there I was, in the tea aisle...

I observed a moderate selection of Ceylon teas... that my mind initially interpreted as Cylon tea.

My poor, neglected blog!

I really ought to post in here, more often.

I blame it all on LiveJournal - that black hole of time-sucking distraction!

Nevertheless, I shall entertain you with my boring, adult to-do list:
1. Tear self away from Star Trek:TNG
2. Go to grocery store.
3. Get a pumpkin. (Yes, I know Halloween is over, but I am craving fresh pie.)
4. Get milk.
5. Throw away expired milk.
6. Clean apartment. (See if misplaced motivation to finish writing those articles can be found amidst the clutter.)
7. Top off the fishtanks. (It must be dry in here... both the 20 and the 39 gallon tanks are an inch and a half low.)
