you want resolutions? fine, i will give you resolutions.
1) look at the accompanying photo ALREADY ACCOMPLISHED MARK OFFA LIST
2) spend as little time in washington state as possible. this is the same goal as i had last year. the times when i was not in fuckwad land were THE BEST parts of last year. so, i am saying to all of you who know me DO YOU WANT COMPANY IN 2013 BECAUSE I CAN BE COMPANY JUST ASK ME TO VISIT OK
also, i am trying to go to either south america or asia. we will see how that turns out depending upon ticket prices.
also, also, still looking at iceland in late oct/early nov.
and maybe london in april.
3) idk something will probably come up
4) make people refer to seattle as "the tacky".
enjoy your end of year revelry if this is something you do. i have been to enough shit parties in seattle to know that i am not going to bother because, god, parties are always such shit in the tacky. it's a much better use of my time to plan trips away from this suckhole, so i will be doing that.
happy 2013, etcs.

she can never sit still, that fuji.
more scintillating things of this nature are sure to show up during the next few hours. so if you're totally over your family, why not check in from time to time? it will be just as boring but i won't harangue you about your political views or when you're going to have kids, etc.

i hope you are not as sad as me or this tree. if you are, please remember that it's only about 12 more days and then we don't have to deal with this shit again until 2013.
if you aren't, hooray! have a great holiday or whatever!

STILL two new full spectrum light bulbs in the living room. ALSO i did not screw up the timer on the coffee pot last night so there is coffee. AND there are some goofy surprises that i sent to a few people. i am looking forward to their reactions. (that is what is really keeping me going, if i'm honest.)

hahah that title. god.
anyway, today i made cakes in lemons.
it's pretty much just a twist on making a cake in an orange like you did in scouts or whatever 'cept i didn't bother building a fire. OH YEAH ALSO LEMONS NOT ORANGES.
click through here for the set for visual steps if you need them. basically though, just cut open some lemons, squish out the innards, fill 2/3 of the way with white cake mix and bake for 20 min at 350f.
the result is a sort of a lemon custard thing. enjoyable, i suppose. but not as fun as the noise the lemons make when you're not all precious about disemboweling them.

what do you know! i managed to stretch the world's most ridiculously sized canvas this morning without staple gunning myself in one of my fingers! everything is, indeed, coming up milhouse.
finished piece by this afternoon? sure, i guess so. well, if it doesn't suck. also, please to not be getting your hopes up because this is just ridiculous from every angle. um, as usual.

so this is going to be the last post of the day. it's not nice to fill up feed readers, right?
i've been making this ginger scallion sauce/oil/stuff for a couple of years now. recipe is here. it is pretty much just wok oil. but WHATEVER WOK OIL IS TASTY
i usually use it on baked chicken over basmati or jasmine rice but leff eats it on almost everything. it smells FANTASTIC and people will think you'll have used some magical kitchen witchery when they eat it. but HA JOKE IS ON THEM it is only oil, ginger, green onions and salt.
SO EASY PEASY SO NOT LEMON DIFFICULT
but, hey, make these even if you don't need an emergency batch. here's the recipe. i omitted the crystallized ginger because 1) didn't feel like hopping the ferry to uwajimaya 2) didn't feel like crystalizing ginger at home. they're still really good if you leave it out.
it looks like things are going to be going short form. yay! i guess. it might mean more frequent posts? who the fuck knows.
anyway, since i am changing things so much, i thought i would GIVE YOU SOME OWLS to soften the blow so HERE ARE SOME OWLS. see you in a minute with some cookies.

and clouseau is THE WORST at hide and seek.
fuji doesn't really care though.
i am just glad to not be wearing these boots anymore. stupid fucking more then 5" of rain in 48 hours.
none of these represent fucks that i give.
and i can't even.

welcome to november in this shitty, shitty state.
bright point of the week! a lovely card from bunny! THANK YOU BUNNY!!
otherwise, the squash has been moody
but i guess the green stuff has been fairly upbeat.
i have not been drinking as much as i would like because the price of booze in this state is fucking scandalous. (airplane bottle courtesy of rhys. THANKS RHYS!!)
it seems like the cats have hunkered down for the rest of the year too.
although they are not reading because they are illiterate. WHAT THEY ARE CATS CATS CAN'T READ
anyway, GIVE ME YOUR OWL
'cause i'm gonna' need SOMETHING to get me through the rest of the year.
ed note: possible updates during the thanksgiving holiday because, well, because. i am nice. clinically depressed, but nice.

moodiness ahead. what, i am HERE in the state that i can't stand and everyone i care about (other than leff and the cats) is THERE. THERE IS NOT HERE. i am wounded in my heartal area because of all of the missing of peoples and things. aw. *pity party dance*
sigh... rhysling is one of those people who is THERE. but for a while he was here with kitty loaf clouseau and it was good.
poor rhys. i keep thinking that our jet lag isn't going to be terrible but HA it is always terrible. the poor guy has gotten used to me just dropping things on the floor. and running into things. and not being able to finish a sentence without falling asleep in the middle of i............
on the third day after we got back though, i was feeling a LITTLE more human so we went to ish
and that new taqueria in downtown b'ton.
that pupusa is DER BOMB.
and i think i voted that day. i'm not really sure WHEN i voted, i just know that i did. FUCK YEAH I DID.
you know, i think the reason rhys puts up with jet lag days is because 1) it's probably really funny 2) i make food that i ate in the uk. this time it was fake nando's
and steak and ale pie.
i would pirate them all pretty high on the delicious scale.
(sorry. that was a terrible pun.)
but, all too soon, rhys was headed to the ferry, to the light rail to the airport. and now he is in the atl. SADS!! and i am left on my own with only my secret british stash to keep me company.
HAHAH I LIKE HOT CHOCOLATE OKAY?!
since rhys left, it has gotten pretty damn cold.
i have been eating a lot of grilled cheese.
and i started doing light therapy. because FUCKING HELL IT IS SO DARK AND MISERABLE HERE. ugh.
another bright spot beside the light was getting postcards from jens. he's been on holiday in japan! (i have loved reading about it on plus!) he always sends the best cards
complete with awesome postage.
right, i'm going to get back to plexing british tv shows on youtube to my roku. and also thinking about how that last sentence wouldn't have made any sense to me just five years ago.
yours in mopeitude! see you next monday!
