oh yeah... that's Jessica Alba... and Blake Lively.
Yup... That's us ladies. You know we let them flop all over us. And back again. And we love it. Dammit!
Oh and, I just spent the last hour showing my mom all the Lonely Island videos including "I'm on a Boat" "Mother Lover" and "Jizz in my Pants" (Um HELLOOOOOOOOOO! Where have you been?!)
P.S. She likes "I'm on a boat" the best!
If you're not feeling Christmas-ey enough... enjoy this Dan-Band action... dedicated to my dearest fan "Anonymous" Jess:
I ♥ them too!
Merry Frickin Christmas Y'all!!

My post today is about STOCKING STUFFERS! I came up with some pretty kick-ass relatively cheap ones, and wanted to share. I'm such a giver!! They're also great for last minute gift ideas for anyone you may have forgotten!
|Walmart - Pack of 4 for $9 (easy to split into FOUR gifts!)|
|Walmart $1 each!|
Check out my super awesome Star Wars bedside table I made for my bro for Christmas. I'm so proud of my efforts I felt the need to share!
|don't judge my unfinished hardwood floors...|
- Clean your table.
- Fit and cut your posters to where you'd like to place them.
- Dip posters in the sink so they're damp. This helps them adhere flat, and causes less bubbling (think applying wallpaper)
- Use a small paint brush and apply Mod Podge to the surface, lay down and arrange your picture.
- Press out air bubbles with damp wash cloth.
- Apply a generous top coat of Mod Podge (don't worry, it dries clear).
- Apply 2-4 more coats. Et, voilà! Très jolie!
What's really funny is that his wife actually was the one who asked for a bed side table for Christmas. Too bad I had this planned out before I got her list!! O.o

But for me, I want something awesome... and awful. But not like smelly gym socks awful, but "ohhhhhh my God where the HELL did you find THIS?! awful. After some careful research, this is what I've found, and want to pass the inspiration on to you dear friends :)
Preferrably a giant Costco or Sam's Club size
6. Edible underwear
7. Old bowling pin
|(most bowling alley's will sell old ones for $2-5)|
|Or other comparable, un-touristy place|
Google "when my 1998 calendar be good again" and you can find out that its good again in 2036!!
|My personal favorite|

Dude, Kip Winger is a little hottie. I bet he got a lot of ladies back in the day. I totally googled him and came up with this:
And honestly VH1, I love all these songs and bands, but I think quite a few of these bands don't really qualify as "metal".
Peace, Love and Long 80's Hair,

I finally, FINALLY FINALLY all moved in! And I finally have internet! I'm sure you've all been there. Having moved in, but
Whew. The hard part is over now.
So I hope you all had a lovely holiday weekend. We had a big family dinner which is always interesting. Laughing, talking, lots of drama, whispering in one room, filling wine glasses in the next. Ohhhhh family. Isn't passive aggressiveness FUN!?! We took it fairly easy on the wine this year (as opposed to last Christmas when we drank 23 bottles of wine and there were 14 guests, two of whom were children and didn't drink and two were DD's and didn't drink... you do the math! WHOOP!) We did however have a turkey, a ham, elk roast and ANOTHER turkey. Seriously. We were worried about not having any leftovers. WRONG. Oh and not to mention the 15 pounds of mashed potatoes and SEVEN pies. We didn't even touch 2 of them. Ahhh!
On to other news, I now live with two kitties. The cutest kitties I have ever seen. Not so much that they are fluffy and adorable, but that they're INSANE and CRAZY and I love that about them. They are so entertaining :) I've re-named them (because I have no idea what they're names were before) Mischief and Mayhem. And boy do they live up to their names. I have video of Mischief chasing his tail in a tupperware tub. Too funny. But the best part is my mouser Mayhem. He's taken to playing in the bathtub. He likes to play with his fake mousies in the tub, flipping them up and around and pouncing on them. I think he likes that the shower curtain keeps them contained.
So anywhoodle... Cut to Saturday morning... 6:30 am...
Sure enough. Mayhem. In the tub. With an actual dead mouse. Throwing it into the air, and attacking it. Kinda gross and kinda awesome at the same time. I let him play with it for another 30 minutes before I disposed of it. With tongs. LONG ass tongs.
But to THIS morning. 3:30 in the freaking am.
|what they do, when i'm not home|
And thus I leave you. Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend! And hopefully I'll be around a little more again! Love you all!
And here's a special shout out to Dr. Monkey VonMonkerstein, whom I totally forgot to invite to my pretend blog party. OF COURSE you'd be invited!! I'm sorry I was in a rush when addressing my pretend invitations. I just assumed you'd get the invite on facebook ;D

1. If you could give your readers one piece of advice, what would it be?
Write for yourself. You're never going to make everyone happy. I started my blog to keep friends and family posted on my life, without having to send out mass emails. Obviously its evolved a bit since then, but I still write for myself. Post as often as I like, about things that I like. Its the best way you'll stick with it, and honestly earn more readers because you're being who you really are as opposed to being a phoney boloney.
2. Name the three things that you love the most about your life.
--I love getting paid to do nothing (ahhhhhh the beauty of unemployment insurance)
--I know someone everywhere. Having lived around the country, I can find someone to get a beer with, or crash on their couch, in nearly every state!
--I have good looks AND personality. Whoop!!
3. If you could switch places with any one of your friends or family members for one day, who would you choose and why?
I honestly like my life as is (most days) and wouldn't switch my life with anyone's! Cheesey? Who cares! :)
4. What is one trend that you wish didn’t exist or that had never caught on?
I can only pick one?! Today, I'd say jeggings. I'm sorry. Wear skinny jeans. Wear leggings. Jeggings are just hybrid idiot looking pants.
5. Name three inventions you consider to be ingenious.
fermentation (beer... DUH!)
the internet (Thanks Al Gore!!)
6. At your funeral, you want people to remember you as…
Fun loving, caring and loyal. I have no spouse or children, so my brother gets my life insurance, and the instructions are to have a giant party, in my honor. Wake style. Lots of booze, food, music, telling awesome Anne stories.
7. If you could be famous, what would you like to be famous for and what celebrities would be in your posse?
The cast of How I Met Your Mother and Betty White. That's how we roll.
8. If you were going to host a blogger house party which bloggers would you invite and what would go down?
Well most house parties I have include Beer Pong (we play the Beruit Version) and Guitar Hero. My guest list would include:
Heather @ Boyfriend Challenged
Jon @ 1000 Tiny Things I Hate
All the Guys @ American Drink
Ashley @ One Crazy Brunette Chick
Sofia @ The Brewery
The Faux Trixie @ The Faux Trixie
