Random Photos

So, I realized that I had very few current photos of me on the internet, which normally wouldn't be too bad.  But, I get really frustrated when I'm trying to put together a Power Point at school, and I can't just grab photos off the blog, like I used to!  I used to use Flickr, but alas, I keep forgetting my password!  So I'm going to upload a few pics here, since I've decided to start using this blog again.

If anyone actually reads this, I apologize in advance for the complete randomness of these photos.

Christmas 2014

Hello Friends and Family

A quick recap of our ExciTInG ChRIstMaS!
Or, the laid back 'Mas of 2014

Christmas Eve Plans - We had a dinner with friends at an all you can eat Shabu Shabu restaurant.  After, we were headed to the foreigner bar for drinks and some rekindling of friendships from buddies of Christmas past!
Christmas Eve Actuality - We stayed home from the bar as Anthony was really exhausted.  I ended up eating at Cobaco - a pork tenderloin/noodle shop.  I ate udon and pork tenderloin with Erin, and then we came back to the house and watched Dumb and Dumber To (which we downloaded for free, and I'm sure glad we did.  it was......tough to finish).
Anthony opened his Julia present.  She got him a small glass container shaped like a hamburger.  TOO HILARIOUS.

Christmas Day Plans - Wear pajamas.  Friends arrive.  Have breakfast - eggs, pancakes, biscuits, gravy, potatoes, coffee, etc. Hang out and watch Christmas movies.  Play board games.  Day Drinking (Mimosas and Bloody Marys), snooze, make appetizers including tamales,  velveeta dip, Christmas cake, poutine, and spinach dip.  Hang out until midnight watching TV, talking and eating.
Christmas Day Actuality - Wore pajamas.  Friend arrived.  Ate biscuits, gravy, and potatoes.  Watched Fred Claus.  Made Spinach dip, stuffed mushrooms, tamales, velveeta dip.  Drank Mimosas.  Watched Christmas Vacation.  Friend came over.  Watched Finnish movie, Rare Exports:  A Christmas Tale. Group Discussion.  Went to sleep at 11:30.  Same pajamas all day.

All in all, a pretty successful Christmas.  The only thing I would have changed, was I should've made a veggie plate.  I am so full and FAT of junk food!  I need an after Christmas Fast.  And I DO wish we would've had poutine.  Oh well.  There's always Easter!

Thanks everyone for making our first Christmas in Maseok such a success!  Even for us lazy bones!

Oh my. What has become of this blog?

It has been a while since I've seriously sat down and started blogging.  I felt like, "I'm over it!"  But thanks to a blast from the past contacting me on my arch nemesis, Facebook, I feel I should start blogging again.  I know that this blog has lost all of it's followers, but reviewing this piece of history, I thought, should I just let it die?  Hell NO!  It was really rockin' at one time (almost a decade ago).

Well, even if it no longer is being read, who the hell cares.  I will rant and rave to my hearts content.  After all, if everyone else is STILL doing it, why can't I?

So, My PRE-New Years Resolution:
Write on this silly blog.  The last few years have been a blur and I barely remember them.  But reading past Locomocos posts, I remember that I once was:

1. Opinionated
2.  Sometimes clever
3.  Always hilarious
4.  Very burnt out at my job
and last but not least
5.  A drunk

That being said, I am just like my idol, Bridget Jones, and now that I'm in my late 30s, I can certainly handle my drinks better!*  Let's just see if I can juggle my life better!

Cross your fingers
