Posse! Whew! Christmas is.. OVER! Thank Floyd. I get it. It can be a magical time. But it can also be a slog. Or an unmitigated disaster (like the time I turned the Christmas dinner table over, right into the cubs’ laps. 15yr old boys, each weighing in at 250+, starting a fistfight at the table… and throwing food. FOOD I MADE. Uh, no. so I dumped dinner in their laps and made them clean the entire kitchen. Stepmom from HELL! But they made it out alive, so there’s that, right? And that unacceptable behavior was nipped right the hell in the bud, so …. Good times.
So now I get to enjoy Christmas by my damme. And it is a glorious thing.
You wanna know what I did for Christmas celebration? I made Thai curry, cleaned off my Boo-ish front porch and hauled trash wood out to the burn pile (and BURNED it – because I’m a savage). Read. Binged the Guilty Glory that is ‘Forged in Fire’. Shopped for mini karambit knives. Toying with the idea of a Kali class. Mani/pedi. Shirley Horn on a solid repeat. And I enjoyed the living snot out of the great lashings of Chanel No 5 – ALL THE No 5 (a vinty soap, body oil, body lotion, vinty perfume…. oooooh-rah! Such sillage!) Today, I finished up some tidying, awash in enough vintage Arpege (powder and perfume) to stun a rhino. Beautiful! I’ve got on so much perfume that you can smell me on the moon! Imo, that’s a solo adventure (if your mileage varies PLEASE tell me about it – I wanna know about the unicorn who can take that much No5)
Not dissing those who crave and love spending this holiday time with friends and family – I’ve had some nice times thusly. Just not on the regular. And I’m too old for prison. So a quiet day or two indulging no one’s expectations other than my own is a beautiful thing! And indulging in great lashings of intense fragrance is a thing best left to solitude! Seriously – the sheer tonnage of No5 would’ve turned that Christmas table over all on its own!
and OMG! I forgot to have Rudy throw some ballistics – here are the winners from my last Musing’s post!
y’all know the drill! Gmail your evilauntieanita and give me the deetydeets! I’ll get some fun out to you pdq.
What did you do for Christmas (and if you don’t celebrate, what did you do anyway. If you tell me movie and Chinese food I’mo burst into tears. I am 100 miles from my favorite Chinese. Whiiiine. One time Patty, March and I went to NY and all we did was order in cheap & cheerful Chinese – for the entirety of the trip! LOL! It was sublime! All the Moo Shu. Fried Rice! Eggrolls. Lemon Chicken. Shrimp in Lobster Sauce. Droooool.
