A glass of sangria is $5 and a half carafe is $9. HOWEVER, a half carafe of sangria fills exactly one glass.

Maybe "Cliffor" is an actual name, but I'm guessing not. Even if I were in the market for a giant Santa statue, there's no way I could take this one home for me.

My brother didn't show for our Monday night boxing class and whenever I'm there without him (which is more often than when I *am* with him) EVERYBODY asks about him. It's no surprise to anyone who has ever known him, but jeeeeeeze people like him. Both of my brothers, as a matter of fact. I'm lucky to have them solidly on my team.

The above is a screenshot of my dad's Facebook page. The photo on the left was posted first and the photo on the right was posted the next day.
I don't know if the lady whose comment I circled was specifically referring to the picture on the left, but now that I see them in Facebook's timeline view, she's exactly right.

Parking at Santana Row was easier than expected so I'm using the time to pre-lax before my last minute massage and facial. While it's sort of lonely and pathetic that I'm free for a last minute massage and champagne on a Saturday night, it's also pretty great. I'm conflicted.

I don't get what makes this salad better for lovers of veggies than any other salad, originally uploaded by dumpstar_drummer.
I don't spend a lot of time thinking about my pre-cancer..., originally uploaded by dumpstar_drummer.
...so the scars caught me off guard in the Nordstrom dressing room.
I can't imagine who would look good in this dress., originally uploaded by dumpstar_drummer.

But then it came to me!
We were already planning a red and orange color scheme and I could country it up a bit by using red gingham linens and renting jelly jars instead of glasses and then instead of the taco guy's regular plates, I could get those red and white checkered nacho-ish paper boats and VIOLA, I'd have an adorable way of making casual, chic.
I'll share more about all of that later, but I wanted to tell you about how I looked on eBay for those paper boats and once I figured out what they were called, I found a handful of listings. Some of the options were blue, some were in boxes of 5,000, some were $20 with $30 shipping, blah blah blah. I love a good theme as much as the next girl, but I didn't want to be so obsessive that I lost touch with what was reasonable.
BUT WHAT IS THIS??? 1,000 for $20 and $5 shipping??
And then they arrived and they were teeny small. Like the size of a computer mouse. I didn't want my guests to feel like they could only eat ONE taco, so these just would not do. I gave them to my dad, who I was sure would find a million uses for them that did not involve serving people one taco at a time.
Fast forward a week or so and my dad forwarded me an email thread from a lady with an organization called Reptile Rescue and Rehoming. It appeared that he'd put the tiny trays on Craigslist and the thread was about how a lady named Paulina was going to come and get them, great, he'd put them on the porch, and then she got them and yay, Paulina had her trays and my dad had the garage space back.
It took me a minute or three to realize that there were attachments to that email:
I must admit that I'm not a reptile fan, but I sort of feel warmth toward these particular reptiles and I love that the tiny paper trays found a good home and that the reptiles appear to be enjoying their new dishes.
I double love that Pauline thought to send the pictures and triple love that my dad knew I'd appreciate them and I don't at all regret that purchase. (Even though I ended up finding the appropriately sized paper trays at the restaurant supply store for $10.)

And in order to get to that pretty little beach, you have to walk past houses with a lawn that looks more like green carpet than lawn.
And past orchids that just grow like they're weeds or something.
On night one in Guam we went to a German beer and brat restaurant called McKraut's.

It was January, but Jeff wasn't the only one who still had his Christmas decor out.
True story: She's been my stand-in husband for years:
I look all healthy and glowy, but really I was sweating my ass off.
