I'm Dating a Vampire...no joke!


I woke up Monday morning expecting it to be like every Monday morning. I stayed in bed longer than usual hoping that I really didn't have to get up. My boyfiend... did I say "fiend," I meant "friend." Anyway, he got out of bed before me to take a shower. I figured I'd let him finish his shower and then I'd get in. I decided I could brush my teeth while I waited. As I opened the bathroom door, darkness was awaiting. A beast behind the shower curtain moaning an animal-like moan as the light crept in. The freak of nature scolded me for allowing light into his lair. This weirded me out quite a bit and calling the monster a "freak" didn't appease the situation. So I left to let the dog out. As I do every day, I turned on the porch light so he could see. Little did I know (or did I?) that the light from the porch shines into the bathroom since we have not yet invested in a curtain (one thing at a time, is privacy a priority? I think not). Again I heard inhuman groaning, this time louder. The demon was yelling at ME! I continued to call it a freak of nature and a vampire, but this only angered it further. Had I figured it out? Was my boyfriend really a vampire??? Once he got out of the shower, he was back to his old self (I've read about these "transformations" in Dracula). He did question why I had turned on the lights, but the moans and groans subsided. For now.

About 15 minutes later it seemed as if the vampire in him had returned, when he said, "turn down the heat" in a very stern voice, but then I remembered he nags me about this every day. However, when he was about to leave the house and he approached me for a good bye kiss, instead of going for my mouth, he turned his head, stretched his neck toward me and seemed to be going for my jugular. I pulled away and turned just in time so that his mouth was against my cheeks. What I got was a kiss, but I could feel two pointy fangs brush my skin. And then, with a swoosh of his cape, he was off.

I will keep you all informed of any other sitings of the beast.

ELOJ


The difference between me and my dear friend Sarah is that I drink coffee all year round while she is a festive drinker. Not many days went by this autumn without mention of the PSLOJ (pumpkin spice latte of joy--the "of joy" an addition by Sarah). We discussed the PSLOJ so often that I almost said the "of joy" part when ordering one at my local Starbucks, obviously. Well now those cool autumn days have turned into crisp December ones and with the changing season comes the changing of holiday drinks at Starbucks. Now my drink of choice is the Eggnog Latte. They also have a gingerbread latte and a peppermint mocha, but nothing beats the Eggnog Latte. Say it with me friends, "Eggnog Latte"...OJ.

Well, I was in Starbucks the other night preparing to order this warm, creamy, sweet drink OJ, when I saw on the counter, the secret recipe! MAKE IT AT HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS it read. The recipes: Tazo Chai Eggnog Latte and Starbucks Eggnog Latte. WHAT? Can this be true? Can I really bring the joy home with me?

Starbucks Eggnog Latte
Start by blending your favorite cold eggnog with cold whole milk in a 2:1 ratio and steam until it reaches 145 degrees F. Note that eggnog scalds more quickly than milk, so be careful not to overheat.

1. Steam: Eggnog-milk mixture to 145 degrees F
2. Add one shot of brewed espresso to cup.
3. Fill cup with steamed eggnog-milk mixture to 1/4 inch below the rim.
4. Top with 1/4 inch of eggnog-milk foam.
5. Garnish with a sprinkle of nutmeg.

Yeah right, like I am going to do all that!!! I don't even have the proper equipment! Nice idea, but no. I think I will continue to pay $4 and just buy the ELOJ from Starbucks, with 10 packets of Splenda to go, of course.

What I did today...


Edgar and I went shopping together. We went into The Disney Store and he bought me an Eeyore stuffed animal. It was very sweet!! It has a detatchable tail and everything. I love Eeyore. I love Edgar. Thanks for noticing me.

Apology



I apologize for neglecting my fans in the last few weeks. I have been very busy as well as emotionally distraught over the break up of Nick and Jessica. Jessica--Nick is the reason you are as famous as you are today. He has always loved you and supported you, even when your ego got inflated. You need to talk things over and work it out. Remember your wedding? Remember when you broke up and got back together after 9/11? Yeah, just think about that. Nick--Stop partying with random girls. It doesn't make you look good. It just makes everyone suspicious. Anyway, I am still not over this break-up and in fact, I feel like i am going through a break-up myself. And this my friends is the reason I have neglected you all. Thank you for understanding...you are all true fans!!!
