At any rate, we've started the long rounds of baking. Really awesome since I do love baking quite a bit. On Wednesday night I made the divinity, I cued in my ipod and "Once You Meet Her" to start off the games. The song was in memoriam of my grandmother, it's a little something I do, I listen to that song right before I start and it reminds me of why I am making divinity. It is because of her, and it's somewhat of a ritual but when I'm making divinity I really do feel closer to her.
Today (or rather thursday) I made chocolate chip cookies and all those goodies. Also added butterscotch Pecan cookies which of course my grandmother also baked but I decided to do this year. Haven't tried them but them I'm not too fond of butterscotch. I make the staples, and Shu does the very artsy type cookies.. so together we have a mixture of practical and whimsical.
So I have three people to send goody tins too, I think that I'm going to do that first thing this morning.. once the post office opens up, I'm assuming at nine. That way I can get it out of the way. I got one going to California, one going to Missouri and then one all the way to Great Britain (to my supah secret british correspondant, she knows who she is!)
I'm digging Duran Duran's new single, "All You Need is Now". Fucking brilliant. God damn it, Duran Duran only disappointed me once, and that was the "Big Thing" album *and even then there was gold on that album). I do not expect that Duran Duran will disappoint me either. It's nice to have reliable musical likes like Take That and Duran Duran, who you know that when they release an album, you'll love it. Everyone needs artists like that)
Which leads me to my Christmas Present to all you guys!
