So we have all heard of stranger danger right? Well some strangers; such as the tall, dark, and handsome ones we read in books and watch in movies, could enter our lives. I mean there is a small percentage.
That’s why one must always be on the lookout and prepared:
Because you never know when the possible stranger could become more…
And it’s true, whether we are so deeply invested that we know the designer’s names and collections, to whether we know what we like and that’s what we buy over and over again; everyone has some sort of interest in fashion.
And with that we have the things we like and dislike; our own little quirks. For instance I hate anything around my neck it bothers me to no end.
My sister always makes fun of me for that, but it feels like I am choking.
I also hate huge clunky bracelets. I have very small wrists so I always have issues getting ones that fit right.
Yep, comfort tends to be my number one thing.
Sometimes it is more fun to just chill out and relax than be in dressed up clothes. I think Cher said it best in Clueless:
Although that doesn’t go for my shoes as I love them high.
So today I spent the day baking, baking Christmas Cookies!
The first were called Sand Tarts, which I got from my sister blog Mysterious Eats. They’re posting the recipe next Friday, but gave me a sneak peak. They look good, and seem tasty. You see I could only eat a little bit of each cookie as I’m still recovering from having my wisdom teeth extracted.
I was making a dozen for one of my jobs, as this Sunday is their annual Christmas Children’s Program.
One of my favorites is Here Comes Santa Claus (Down Santa Claus Lane). I first sang it back when I was in Girl Scouts and we went into the nursing homes to carol.
It was written in the 1940s by Gene Autry, who got the idea after he was Santa Claus in a parade. Since then it has been covered by numerous artists; like Elvis Presley, Doris Day, and Bing Crosby to name a few.
My favorite version? The one from The Year Without a Santa Claus
So if you have been reading my blog, you know I know a little about fashion:
But I’m not perfect.
Yep, I don’t always follow what is in or what I should wear, because I like doing my own thing. For instance, my most important accessory is a book.
And I don’t always follow the rules. For example, one of the first rules of fashion, “always wear something that fits you”. Well I like wearing oversize clothing every now and then.
Comfy and slim feeling. But you know what? Oversize clothing once saved my life!
So one of my good friends is a Supernatural fan like me.
And of course like any fan, we began to do marathons together.
Now while this was all fine and good, there is just one problem. Her dog hates me. And I mean really hates me. Every time I come he barks at me or advances at me. And I don’t know why, animals (except guinea pigs and birds) love me.
Why is this happening?!!
And this isn’t any ordinary dog. This is a giant great dane who is bigger than me.
Yeah, Taurean (the dog) is one scary creature.
So far we had had three very successful marathons, and we had some great treats. Popcorn of course
Cupcakes, brownies, and then one time my friend Michelle made these really amazing cookies, mamafuku or something like that.
I’m going to have to get my sister blog, MysteriousEats.wordpress.com to make me some. Anyways as you might have noticed everything was on the snacky side, nothing quite a full meal. So this latest time I thought I would take a pizza.
When I got to her house and rang the doorbell, the dogs barked at me as usual. However, this time Taurean pushed past Michelle and came running toward me.
I tried to back away, but he was too fast and bit my side.
Yep, I would have been seriously injured if it wasn’t for the fact I had an oversized sweater on. Taurean grabbed that instead of my body, and Michelle was able to grab him and wrestle him to the backyard.
I’m lucky that I choose comfort that day, and am making that a life long choice if I’m to be around any more dangerous company.
For today’s Christmas Carol, I choose the song The First Noel. The song is about the anunciation to the shepherds and the announcement of Jesus’ birth (Luke chapter 2). Noel is an Early Modern Europe term equivalent to Christmas.
No one knows when the poem was first written, but the version we sing today was published in 1823.
It’s short and sweet, and I absolutely love it. Take it away Bing!
