Monday Must Have

I’m not going to lie, there may be a little less Monday Must Have’s and Wanted Wednesdays for the next few weeks – I’m feeling a little gluttonous after such a lush and crazy Christmas, and thinking about Must Haves and Wanted’s just makes me feel oh.. like I’m dipping my turkey dinner in chocolate and having a side of mashed cheesecake. Just a little. But never fear, I’m sure my hoarding capitalist tendencies will return, displayed like pornography all over this blog. (Did I mention my academic interests lay in alienated labour? Yeah. You figure that one out. This blog is like my secret little dirty.. everything.)

However, I couldn’t resist (like mashed cheesecake) these sweet little necklaces from Tatty Devine, especially given my upcoming final semester. So collegiate!

I’m sorry the blogging has been a bit spotty here and there lately, but to be honest, I’ve been far more interested in eating as much as I possibly can before I leave here tonight – I’m allowed two 50lb bags, came with one at 30lbs, and am leaving with a full two bags full and an extra 5 lbs on my stomach. Shit hey.

My family really went all out this year – I hate to be the braggy braggy type, but I have to tell you, among the beautiful clothes, art, cookbooks, kitchen supplies… I got a signed copy of a Bukowski book. Those of you who know me.. can extrapolate easily what this meant, and how much I cried. *laugh* I hate enumerating gifts, because they were all so special, especially the time spent with family – but it was pretty incredible.

So I’m signing off for a little bit, I get home early in the morning tomorrrow and work at 7am, so chances are my blogging skills (not to mention my Code Blue skills, which are shoddy at best) are going to be a little… dull. I hope everyone is travelling safely, wish me luck on the airline that shall not be named. xoxo

  1. Mmmmmm mashed cheesecake…

    Wish I could have seen you for the holidays! I’ve actually never been to Canada (how bizarre), but a trip to the snowy North (as opposed to the slightly-less-snowy, slightly-less-North) should happen sometime in the not-too-distant future, methinks.

    cute. i used to give pencil sharpenings to my friends and wonder why they didn’t appreciate them like i did. there’s something very pretty about them, but maybe it’s just me who thinks that!
    i HATE cheesecake though.

  3. I feel your pain, and I know you feel mine. I made it, eventually. Godspeed to you, and see you on the other side.

  4. I couldn’t tell you the last time I used a real pencil sharpener (other than for my makeup pencils). I saw one in my college classroom a couple weeks ago and kind of stared at it, haha.

    Laurie – Definately. I’m warning you, you might need a few more sweater/scarf/cardigan combos. 😉
    Fran – Really??! No Cheesecake? Wow.. I don’t know what to say about that. Like, are we talking, no NO bake cheesecake? Because that’s gross and makes me think of retirement homes.. but NO cheesecake?
    EG – Can you believe it? I’m now struggling with the belly I’ve developed. Do you think you loose weight FASTER when you’re carting around a tire? Then maybe it would be advantageous to keep eating until I can just evaporate it all with one solid run.
    Angela – Oddly enough, in the past two days I’ve had no less than four discussions of pencil sharpeners..I like them. It’s.. Vintage. Yeah.

  6. Beautiful necklaces! And it sounds like your Christmas was a resounding success – congrats!

    my sister-in-law made a freezer cheesecake once, and the base was smashed up brownies. that was amazing. but it was really pure chocolate/double cream/cake and not cheesecake at all. so yes, i can definitely say i’m not a fan of cheesecake. in any way, shape or form (apart from that one brilliant chocolate one.)
