Why am i awake? i got sleepy at about 1:30am and decided i'd just go to bed. But i woke up four hours later. Ehh, at least i have breakfast: rice with milk, sugar, and butter. Mmmm.
Been meaning to post for a while, but i've been so occupied with fun things, i haven't had time. Or, rather, i felt like doing fun things, rather than posting.
Fun things? Yep. Like having even more stuff ftom the library: Fruits Basket Volume 17 (still need to read 16), and 300 and Jet Li's Enforcer on DVD. (I've also got "Sakuran" and "Nana 2" to watch, now, but not from the library).
I've been doing some cooking. I made corn chowder and croutons the other night, and they were both really good, espceially considering that i had no recipe whatsoever for either. (I mean, croutons aren't hard, but i made the corn chowder by just throwing random ingredients together.) I also made milk chocolate cupcakes, with butter cream frosting and chocolate sprinkles on top.
The cupcakes were part of my Annual Christmas Food Cooking Insanity. It's usually just Annual Christmas Cookie Cooking Insanity, because i make a ton of cookies and sweets, but this year i upgraded it to other food, too. I just had the urge a couple of week ago to make the cupcakes, so i decided to use the excuse of Christmas to have some, they'll hold me over until i get to making the real stuff. I plan on making pecan balls, hello dollies, lemon bars, chex mix (probably a sweet variation), more cupcakes (white, with red and green jello, whipped cream, and sprinkles on top), and chocolate chip, cherry chip, peppermint chip, and gingerbread cookies. I also want to make a deli tray-ish swort of thing on Christmas Eve for the family, with vegetables and dip, and celery with cream cheese and raisins, and some chips and dips and such. Also, i hope to make some peppermint ice cream on Christmas. My sister is making a log cake, too, and maybe something else i can't remember. (Crap, i forgot animal crackers and rice krispies for treats.) I also have bags of Christmas hard candy and a few boxes of candy canes. Mmmm, sugar.
Besides the cupcakes, something else Early-Christmasy is i got Zone Of The Enders in the mail. I would have save it for Christmas, but i had to see if it worked so i could leave feedback on eBay (which reminds me: i should do that soon). I got it Friday afternoon, and beat it last night around 11. Heh. Short, but it was decently fun, and had a nicely demented story. Worth having just for the title song i love, and to keep me from getting too antsy before Christmas.
Speaking of Christmas: if anyone wanted to get me a small present, i'm always begging for LJ paid time. ;P Now's the time when they have that deal again that if you gift someone some paid time, they get extra userpics for free. Maybe that'll sway someone. ;D I just really wanna correct the url to my webpage (which i can't edit without a paid account), and save my old userpics from deletion for another six months. Thanks in advance (and many more to come afterwards), if anyone is so kind. ::bows::
I think i'm caught up on entry-type stuff, so i suppose i'll waste some time with a ( survey. )
