Looks like it is about that time and that can only mean one thing... I really need to shower and get my butt to the liquor store! One really should plan their alcohol ahead of time but since I'm the Queen of Procrastination (capitalized to recognize official title) I put it off. The best Holidays are spent tipsy, this is priceless advice, you'll thank me later.

I finally did do some Christmas shopping, I have the cramp in my calves to prove it, it's as if I was sprinting about the stores which trust me, I was not.

Oh crap, but I didn't pick up anything to wrap them in... CRIKEY.

I still feel like I should have bought and found more stuff but hopefully everyone will be relatively pleased with their gifts. I had quite a bit of fun in the toy stores/toy aisles looking for gifts, I'm quite certain I have more fun with it than 95% of children; kids today... don't know how great they have it. I will share pictures of my toy aisle adventures soon but since the interwebs is usually dead today and tomorrow I figure I will wait. My cats seem a bit excited for the holidays as well, they've been playing with a forgotten toy all afternoon.

I hope everyone has a lovely holiday full of joy, alcohol, baked goods, loved ones (human and furry kind alike), gifts given and received, and that everyone gets to and fro' safely. So no dangling off the banisters in a sombrero after too many glasses, or if you do, safely have someone below taking video and send to me asap.

From me and Gizmo, Happy Hoolidays!

disclaimer: I had to add this video because it cracks me up and I wish I had drunken relatives that did shit like this.

I feel as if I've been gone for awhile although it really hasn't been all that long. I haven't had the best luck in the internet/computer and health arenas over the last week or so. Has it been two weeks? I don't even know, I can't keep track at this point - what am I saying, at any point haha. Our main computer had a virus and we haven't been able to get the internet working on it since then, it is a real bummer, luckily (and quite obviously) we have a back up computer (plus ya know, my laptop that I never use and my phone... oh, such a hard life...). My boyfriend is pretty good with computers and keeps trying to fix it but it just doesn't seem to want to work, I personally am clueless when it comes to that sort of thing. On top of that I haven't been feeling very well at all, I think I have conjunctivitis, all I know is I've had eye and head pain consistently for the last few days but it may be an allergy thing. I don't know, I rarely go to Doctors since I don't have insurance. I feel like I'm always sick and always mentioning so to you guys, I'm sorry loves.

Moving on, this is my 50th post and I really wanted to make it special but instead it is just me doing a whole lotta bitching, I'm sorry, its just been one of those weeks. BUT I've been cooking a lot, baked a little, and was going to share pictures of my creations but the computer is holding the images hostage at the moment. I made some cheddar chive muffins, some really tasty meatballs, and a lots of pasta.

I've watched and re-watched some really good movies and tv shows lately including 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo', 'Insidious', 'Bag of Bones', 'Horrible Bosses', 'Cry-Baby' (a re-watch), and one of my guilty pleasures 'Jawbreaker'. I really, really loved 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' and 'Insidious'. I didn't have the highest expectations for 'Insidious' but it really was awesome and actually scared me, I was going to post a picture from the movie but almost all the pictures I found were scary. The ghost bride lady? *Shiver with fear* Plus, I mean 'Insidious' has Patrick Wilson in it, I was disappointed that he didn't show his famous keester in this movie though, not that there was really an appropriate time for him to show his keester but he has a nice butt and I enjoy looking at it. I'm just saying, you can't say you don't agree? If you don't agree then just move on with your weird self. Joking, don't go! <3 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' was quite literally one of the best films I've watched in awhile and I kinda also had the hots for Mikael Blomkvist, he was just such a tender character, I just wanted to hug him. 'Bag of Bones' was predictable but I like Pierce Brosnan as well. Horrible Bosses was hysterical, I love Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston was really amusing in this. Look at me and my constant boy talk, I'd be a Drape, and one from Baltimore even. 'Cry-Baby' (John Waters! Such a kooky, fun, and hysterical man) and 'Jawbreaker', what can I honestly say? They have both been favorites of mine since I was little, or reasonably little since 'Jawbreaker' came out in 1999.

My head is really killing me so I think I'm going to cut this here. I will however share pictures of my Mothers Christmas tree from 2008, I got some really great pictures that year and I love looking at Christmas trees. I hope everyone is well. I still haven't bought anything for my little sisters! I know, I need to get on that.

Christmas morning, presents under the trees and stuffed on the sides. I get up every year before everyone else and take a picture when the presents are all out and under the tree.

The lovely Anita Riot of Thick Threads tagged me in her Christmas List this year and being one that never passes up the opportunity to make lists, covet things I can't really afford, and share my desires, I couldn't have jumped at the opportunity any quicker (I even leaped over the cat). This Christmas list is suppose to be my top 5 most wanted items so I'm going to attempt to stick to those parameters. I have to say, I keep wishlists year around on multiple sites, I don't know why, it's not as if I have some secret Santa on call at all times but a lady has to know what she wants. I mostly keep these wishlists (and meticulously maintain them) because I forget what I want since I have the attention span of a 3 year old, but that is neither here nor there... or waiting in a box at the front step! Anyway onto the Top 5:

                                  1. ASOS Curve Dress with Button Front
The Perfect Little Black Dress with a Film Noir type vibe.
               2. Office Bon Appetite Black Velvet Platforms   
The only heels I can actually stand to wear have a platform heel and I simply love velvet. Office doesn't actually seem to have this in a size 11 but still the velvet platform heel is a wishlist definite.
                            3.The Perfect Lace & Tulle Skirt                
I have been absolutely dying to find the perfect lace and tulle skirt that I can pretty much live in. Also top contenders are Eshakti Lace and Tulle Skirt and Eshakti Layered Tulle Skirt, I couldn't narrow it down to just one because any of these would do.
                                         4. MAC Naked Honey Perfume

Sadly, I have not smelled this but I'm told it smells like honeysuckle, which as you may know (you might) is one of my favorite scents and to this day I have not found a perfume that smells of honeysuckle that I actually like.

                           5. Samsung DualView TL225 Digital Camera
I've really been wanting a new camera that works better (in low-light aka my couch) in general so I don't have to rely on using the camera on my phone which drains the life out of my battery. I don't know much about cameras but this has 12.2 megapixels and it's purple so c'mon, it's a keeper.

This list was actually harder to do than I had imagined it would be since I have so many things and so many variety of things I'm really wanting at all times. Hello my name is Rachel, I'm a shopaholic. I also wouldn't mind having these Lulu Spiked Ballet Flats that I can imagine would be perfect for work, running errands, general everyday wear, and kicking ass if need be. I know, I'm a cheater with my sneaky 6th item.

Anywhoodles, I hope everyone gets what they wish for this year and that if you go to purchase items from your list that they carry the item in your size/color! Dammit. Grr, I have such a hard time finding size 11 shoes sometimes, curse you huge feet.

Now I'm going to tag a few lovely ladies to see what they want for Christmas too. 

Laura of The Blog of Worldly Delights
Amber of The Girly Bird
Courtney of Sartorial Sidelines
Arielle of Humble Pie Vintage
Tracy of Chubble Bubble

Is it time for White Russians, sneaking handfuls of Christmas cookies, and wrapping oneself in Christmas lights yet? I'm more than ready.
