Christmas Blog #5.

Carrie wouldn't be caught dead in Gap clothes!

I have this thing about Sarah Jessica Parker. I friggin' love her, and I love the show Sex In the City, and yes, I was terribly sad when it ended. I don't, however, really like her Gap ads (I think that Lenny Kravitz is losing the little pigment left in his skin every time that gawd awful "Lady" commerical airs). He hasn't been cool since the album Five came out, so whatever. Anyway, as usual, I digress. There is something about the Gap that says Christmas to me. I was in the Gap on Monday buying myself a new pair of jeans (I love the ankle length for shorties!). As I was checking out, I glanced at the sock rack. Totally wrong move, dumbass. They had me at hello. 6 pairs of assorted pink/green/grey/black socks and a pair of jeans later I left the store, breaking the cardinal November 1st/no more shopping for yourself until after Christmas rule. Scott reminded me of this on the phone later that night, and I was all "but I needed jeans and that isn't something one buys for someone else!" and he was all "wull, still". So, I changed the subject and told him "but I also got you something today" and that seemed to peak his interest for like a minute.

In other Christmas news, I also made my famous Cranberry Chocolate Almond Bark with White Chocolate today. This is batch #1 for my mom - I have to make batch #2 for Scott when I get home. I think that the bark is his favourite sweet ever - he would like me to make it more often than just at Christmas, but I make him wait all year for it. I have to prove my value/remind him why he keeps me around. I also started addressing Christmas cards today. Tomorrow I will commence writing unique and personalized messages and forging Scott's signature...gotta get those cards in the mail asap if I want them to reach their destinations by Christmas! And no, the cards are not homemade like last year, they are store bought (what do I look like, Martha Stewart?. Tomorrow: Gingerbread Cookies! Stay tuned.

  1. You're going to forge Scott's signature? Do you think you can change your own handwriting enough to make it look like it was written by a six year old?

  2. Hey Kat - How did you link those other blogs to yours at the side of your page. I can't figure out how to do it, could you please let me know? I want to link you, Jen, etc,

    Thanks,
    Adrianne

  3. You have to alter the template...it's a little tricky. Jennifer emailed me her (SHOCK) username and password, list of urls and I inserted it for her...then I put "THIS IS WHERE YOUR URLS GO PRETTY LADY" in the code so she can add more later. For you, I would put a dirty joke though...

  4. "(I think that Lenny Kravitz is losing the little pigment left in his skin every time that gawd awful "Lady" commerical airs)"

    HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! LOL X 100!!! Funniest thing ever!
    And you know what? I, out of all people, still think Lenny is still every bit Black. Well, half Black (did you know his Momma was 1/2 half of the interracial couple on "The Jeffersons"? My mind is horrible... I can't remember her name)

    Anyway, I can't STAND SJP (maybe because she gave female journalists a bad rep in SITC) but also, every picture I see of her makes me want to vomit. Her red carpet pictures make her look like a waif on crack, while her Gap ads are airbrushed like a Victoria's Secret layout. (BTW, I love me some VS).

    Haw at Scott calming down as soon as you said "I bought something for you". ha ha ha!

    Gingerbread Cookies! Yay! Can you make one to look like Gingerbread Man from Shrek?

  5. Oh ya, and how come when you center your pictures in your blog, it still looks nice? Whenever I center mine, my blog goes haywire and my sidebar section gets dashed to the bottom of the page. A sista's upset!

  6. Ooooh could you please please please set up mine too?

    I don't know how to program, or code, or do whatever the fuck you have to do to get it up there.

    If you agree to do it, where do I send all my information to?

    Thanks,
    Adrianne

  7. KJ - well, I also call SJP "Horsey Face", so it is a bit of a love/hate thing with me. Scott and I always wondered how she managed to buy all those designer shoes and clothes on a journalist's salary? Lenny...well, I want to like him, but he used to rock and now he is doing Gap ads...and that is like anti-rock.

    Head Rabbit - send the email to ficklefeline@gmail.com and I will update your page for you.

  8. Kat,

    Interesting that people would be asking you today how to link other sites in their sidebar. I was wondering the same thing yesterday. It's been years since I've done any HTML coding. It took me a while, but luckily I remembered enough to figure out what portion to copy from your source code and paste into my template. Surprisingly, I even got it right the first time. I rock!

  9. HORSEY FACE!!!! You are KILLING me with the jokes today!!
    Oh, and I figured out the whole 'centre the picture' thang. I just clicked on the picture and hit 'center' as you would for the text.
    I'm such a moron.

  11. Hey girl... did you know the Gap ad with the song "That's The Way I Like It" is performed by my girl Kelis and Van Hunt?
    (dance 1,2 step)

  12. Hi KJ - I'll have to watch out for that commercial...I am not so hot on Kelis...

  13. My parents aren't up on the latest music or anything like that. So when my mom first saw that GAP ad, she literally asked, "Why does that woman look funny?" LOL! No lie!

    That gave me a good laugh. Hehe.

  14. Ok MB. I'm a little jealous you got the first batch of chocolate. I've been promised my own personal stash of goodies, though, so I'll get over it. ;-)

  15. Ok I changed my mind. The third spot (go to gap.com and you'll see what i'm talking about) has Mary J. Blige in it. Now MARY'S MY GIRL!! That's a cool commercial.

  16. Amazing. You've got 5 blogs on a holiday that was originally Jesus' birthday but turned into a shopping spree. I don't think I've even addressed CHRISTmas on my blog. Even though I'll get something, cause my mom's side celebrates Christmas.

    (Can you believe these odds? My mom has 5 sisters. Out of all of them, my mom is the only one who married within the religion. And this was back in Guyana, where everyone's mad strict. It's amazing.)

  17. 5 blogs on Christmas...dude, there are like at least 5 more to come!

  18. I am pleased at The Big N's comment. Very pleased. The young man is smart.

  19. Yes, he is. But I'm not going to let him stop me and my blogging about Christmas. Most of my blogs are about the experience of it all (family, friends, baking...) and not really on the buying of it all.

  20. Yep, I know.
    Don't forget the dogs! They need treats too!!
