Thoughts: It's the HOBBIT. And while I could go into ranting detail about book versus movie, I love both, I'm just going to leave that there.

Goddamn it

Goddamn it, I did not need a reason to like Taylor Swift any more than I already do.

I swear there were more, but either I was hallucinating or just reading too much fanfic. Either is sadly an actual option. Welp! Already started The Hobbit again for this year, and I mean to make it through ALL of my Tolkien books, preferably before Midsummer. It's one of those resolutions of mine (with a break for the newest CJ Cherryh book that comes out every Feb.)



I totally failed at keep track of all my found change last year. Gonna try to be better at it this year - it's one of my resolutions!

So! Found a penny!

I'm pretty sure I saw my stalker today as I got out of my car at the local WalMart. I made it to the cart return thing and saw this silver car pull in with a guy STARING AT ME, just like stalker-boy did, and it was the same general shape/size and coloring. I didn't pause, but I spun on the ball of my foot, sprinted for my car and tore the fuck out of there. I made it home scanning the hell out of EVERY CAR I SAW pull up near me.

A part of me is so fucking annoyed that this guy has impacted my life at all. I changed ALL of my habits last year when that bullshit went down, changed the times I came and went from home, changed the doors I used, changed my parking spot, changed which stores I used, everything for more than six months. I went on varying schedules, and never, ever, used the side doors without Himself with me. And after more than a year of no sign of him, I catch a glimpse of a guy who could be him, could be a complete stranger, but godDAMN IT I was sent right back there again, heart in my throat, hands shaky and constantly scanning my surroundings to JUST BE SURE he wasn't WAITING FOR ME AGAIN.

Fuck you Mr. Stalker-boy. I hope you rot in hell.

Christmas Cookies

So, every year I make Christmas cookies. Christmas is my favorite holiday, I fucking love it. I also try to make lots of different kinds of cookies every year, trying out new recipes or futzing around with old ones. But I've never really kept a list of what I've made and whether or not I like them, which occasionally has led me to make certain cookies and go, "the fuck did I make this for?"

So. The Cookie List. It starts now.

1. Crackle-Top Ginger cookies. (resounding NO. It's got ginger, molasses and lemon. It just tastes weird.) ETA: HIMSELF CAN'T STOP EATING THEM. THEY MAY GO BACK ON THE MAYBE LIST.

2. Cardamom Crescents. HELL TO THE YES.

3. Spicy Apple Bars. These are not cookies. You lied to me, cook book. But it makes a lovely desert warmed and served with ice cream.

4. Salted Peanut Cookies. Yes. Very yes.

5. Molasses Drop Cookies. Yes. A good way to use up extra sour cream, too.

6. Chocolate Chocolate chip cookies. Yes. VERY yes.

7. Cardamom Sugar Crisps. HELL TO THE YES.

8. Grandma's Caramel Cookies. Himself's favorite.

9. Maple Peanut Yummies. Yes.

10. Chocodiles. Yes.

11. Chocolate Shadows. Yes.

12. Oatmeal Chip Cookies. Yes.

13. Long Ago Lemon Cookies. HELL TO THE YES.

14. Swedish Oatmeal Cookies. Yes.

15. Orange-Oatmeal Chews. I need to try these again because I think I did them wrong last time.

16. Orange Raisin Drops. YES.

17. Chocolate Nutbutter Cookies. YES.

That's it so far, but I'm sure to make more both this week and next before I send packages out.
