Christmas Candy!

So, I made lots of Christmas candy last night. Not so much lots of kinds, just lots of two kinds. They were for work people, but like I said, I made lots, so I will bring home the rest for Christmas. First, I made these yummy truffles. I don't actually know that they are yummy, because I was so sick of chocolate from licking it off my hand, that I didn't want to eat one when I was done. And I got better at them as I went a long, and I gave the good ones to work people. So, you guys get the sucky ones that don't look as pretty. But I'm sure they are just as yummy. Also, dipping things in chocolate? Not as easy as it looks. I couldn't get the top covered, then they kept falling off the toothpick back into the bowl. And the later it got, the clumpier the chocolate got, so it didn't smooth out as well after I put them back on the tray. I also made these Pretzel/Rolo/Turtle things that Holly suggested. I did try one of these, and it was pretty good. Also, much easier to make. I still have lots of pretzels, rolos, and pecans left, so I may make some more. They were that easy to make. And they will put Shannon's difficult, homemade, from freshly cracked pecan, actual turtles to shame.

So, there are your yummy Christmas Candies to look forward to! Mmmmmm!

I don't know about you, but I find the pajama countdown shows an appalling lack of work ethic.

Firstly, some of the pajamas are made, but not all have been cut out yet? It seems that completing each step in order would be a more effective assembly-line procedure.

Second, there are in pajamas in boxes but they're not wrapped?? What kind of a Wrapping Elf are you, Melissa!?

Swoop bangs?

I guess they're not really "bangs," but I still like them.

Thursday, December 06, 2007

No, I suck.

Martin, you don't suck as much as I do. In fact, I want to make you a sandwich. And buy you hundred's of dollars worth of pants.

5 Random things about Holly

Yep, I'm Holly. And here are my 5 random things you didn't know about me:

1 - I am really good at sewing. I once made 12 pairs of matching pajamas because I love sewing so much. I may even decide to do it again this year.

2 - I never go to any of my classes. I see college, not as an education, but more of an expensive piece of paper that will help me get a job. Except my cooking class. I go there, because I get to eat my homework and learn how to make stuff that I can cook for Melissa when I visit her.

3 - I don't believe in gravity. Sometimes I feel that I am not being pulled down, so much as being pushed.

4 - My favorite activities all involve cats. They include, but are not limited to: Electrikitty, Swirl-a-cat, Eating tofurkey, and Throwing pickles. Trust me, these all involve cats.

5 - I love the Santa Clause movies. All three of them. I just can't get enough. I hope they make 10 more of them.

That's right. I tagged you all. Cough up your random.

Enchanted Stuff

Apparently they did have a song for Idina to sing (a duet with James Marsden), but it got cut. It's supposed to be an extra on the DVD though.

There were several Princess cameos too. Besides Julie Andrews, Paige O'Hara (Belle), Jodi Benson (Ariel), and Judy Kuhn (sang Pocahontas) were all in there. Also James Marsden sang the bit of "Amore" they play at the Italian restaurant.

And...hahahahaha! While looking at stuff about the movie, I came across this: "The troll is wearing remnants of other Disney Princess' dresses as a loincloth. Among the remnants are sections for Snow White, Belle, Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella. His earrings are made from Ariel’s shells."

Lots of fun stuff. Because you really care...

I am so sad


Woot had Scooba robots for $100 today. I totally would have bought one for that. But they were sold out already.


Saturday, November 17, 2007

Yay for me!!

So, as some of you may know, I have recently applied and interviewed for another job over at ADOA. Yesterday I got an offer from them. A really nice one, way more money than I was hoping for. So, yay! Now I just have to talk to Art and see what he will give me to keep me at ADE, and then I have to decide what I want to do. Big decision. Not sure what I want yet. But either way, I'm getting a raise! I'll keep you posted.

So, this is what Emily signs her texts as. What we know about it so far:
  • It is a secret. This means it's something interesting.
  • She won't tell us what it means for a while. So she will at some point.
  • It is not a joke. At all. Sounds serious.
  • Several people that she texts and emails know what it means.
  • It is a statement.
So, my guess is it has to do with a boyfriend. Feel free to share your speculations.

This Girl Always Loves Isaac (Or any other I-name)
That Guy Albert, Likey I (It's Emily, so we can't exclude incorrect grammar)
This Girlfriend of Arthur Likes Internet

New shoes and Halloween

For everone out there who was just dying to see my Halloween costume and my new shoes, may I present My Halloween Costume and My New Shoes (you'll have to decide for yourself which is which):

Saturday, November 03, 2007


Okay so apparently the message didn't get through that I don't have time for this. So stop filling my inbox with invites to join the blog.

I guess i'll stay as a member if it will make you all happy but i'm not posting anything more, or commenting on anything.

Friday, November 02, 2007

Happy Birthday

To Karen! 1 year! Yay!

Wednesday, October 31, 2007

Fun with photoshop

Okay, I was playing around with the picture on the sidebar, and I came up with some fun stuff. At first I was putting them all on the sidebar, but I decided there were too many options. They are here instead.

I think you look like Hitler. Or the Devil. Or both!

New way for Melissa and Emily to spend quality time with their cats.

See here.

Happy Halloween

Happy actual Halloween today! Everyone make sure to get lots of candy. And save some of it for me. Or just wait until tomorrow to go to the store, and get lots of cheap candy.

Whatever. That's cool.

Monday, October 29, 2007

would you look at this

I'm not sure if you guys saw this or not but I found it and thought I should share. Isn't Richard so cute dancing with a girl?

Catlynn and Connie: BFF!

So, Catlynn found Connie the other day, and now she drags her all around the apartment. She likes to play this game where she takes off the shirt, and then brings it to me to put back on. They are so cute together. And Catlynn gets a little jealous. Humphry is not allowed to play with Connie.
Also, until someone finds something more interesting to post about, I am just going to keep putting up pictures of my cats.

Saturday, October 20, 2007


I was in Target and I found this for only $25. Plus, I had that $5 off coupon that Target sent to me when they opened their new Super Target nearby, so I only paid $20 for it! Humphry was very excited about it. We can break it in on Christmas Eve this year. Fun!

Thursday, October 18, 2007

I think we should try this...

See here for a fun try-at-home experiment.

Emily's New Cat

Emily has officially become a cat lady. (I think this was just an attempt to make her apartment un-un-fun) Two down, two to go. I know what people are getting this Christmas.

The Miracle Has Finally Happened

I know all you crazy people don't really care all that much. But your mother may take six months to come down off this high! I fiannly found the Kamrowski family in Poland. I have only started to copy information but the church records go back to 1766. I have found the death record for the original Joseph Kamrowski. I am so very excited. See all the work I am doing for all of you so you can say your family history is complete!

Saturday, October 13, 2007


I want my ultimate power back. : Or I will make you responsible for decorating for Christmas, and you will have to find a way to make it readable and festive!

Mwa, ha, ha, ha, ha!

Stupid Post Office.

What are they? Irish?

So, I ordered How I Met Your Mother Season 2 last week from Amazon.

It was mailed on Oct 2nd, and it left California on Oct 3rd. So that means it should be here pretty soon, right? I mean, California is only 1 state away. But, no. That would be too easy. They didn't update it again until yesterday, letting me know that it has just left Michigan.


Why send it right past Arizona to Michigan. Now I have to wait for them to bring it back here.

Stupid Post Office.

Ultimate cosmic power!

So, if anybody else wants to play around with the blog settings, I will allow you to be "administrator for a day" (you can't have the privileges forever, because then I couldn't edit whatever you say whenever I feel like it.) Let me know, and I'll change your status from 'contributor' to 'administrator' for a while.

Hey! Happy Birthday to Crystal Too

So don't forget about Crystal. Happy Birthday to her on October 3rd. Even though we are having the party today. Yeah for Crystal.

Friday, October 05, 2007

Congratulations to me!

I finally got my promotion to be Lead Crew Supervisor at my job in the Cougareat (the food court at the student center). My area hasn't had one for about a year and a half, so it's about time, too. I think they just forgot that they were supposed to promote somebody. I've been doing all the stuff and attending all of the meetings that the LCS is supposed be involved in, and I think this morning my manager finally realized I wasn't actually being paid for any of it. So yay. I feel validated.

New Member of the Family

So, I finally got one. It actaully works really well. My apartment looks a lot cleaner, and I didn't have to do a thing. :) The kittens stared at it constantly, but refused to enter the room where it was working. So no cute video clips of them playing together.

Anyway, it's lots of fun. So yeah for me!

Happy Birthday to Noah!

How could you forget that Shannon? His own mother.

Friday, September 14, 2007

Drastic Measures

It has now become necessary for Noah to start a Zebra Rescue Mission due to a lack of space in the ark. These Zebra will be put up for adoption only to the best of homes and to those who will promise to care for them as they would their own children. Of course the original parent Zebras will remain on the ark!

The Ark

Noah is Suspicious

Noah and his wife would like to know just who is was who let the Zebras into the same pen in the ark and then left them there too long!

Free Wallpaper

It was the best day.

So I got you guys’ package yesterday. Hoorah! I don’t think I’ve gotten a “care package” since freshman year. I celebrated by watching Firefly with my friends and eating mini-muffins. They went crazy for those little muffins!

Anyway, you’re awesome, although I’m really disappointed you didn’t go see Balls of Furry.

And I think I need the digital copy of the scary Emy picture… so I can set it as my desktop.

Our niece

Mom said Crystal had an ultrasound today. Little Valani Rachel is healthy and says "Hi!" to all her aunts.

(Okay, I made the last part up.)

And she's due January 4th. Who wants to lay bets that she goes into labor early...on Christmas Day? Hahahahaha.

Wednesday, August 29, 2007


So, we need some really fun ideas to do this weekend. So far we have:

- Maybe helping Emily move (if she wasn't so lazy and would turn in the paperwork on time)
- Looking at new tables for Melissa (since Emily wants to steal her old one)
- Seeing "Balls of Fury" (Holly's idea) (Hey! That's an idea)
- Seeing good movies for free, because we kidnapped Emily (I say we call this "Weekend with Emily" If you don't get the reference to "Weekend with Bernie", look it up)
- BBQ at Mom and Dad's

So. Any other ideas?

Wednesday, August 22, 2007

Richard Sucks!

Richard never gets on the blog. So I thought I would put him up with his fake injury.

Thursday, August 16, 2007

Time for a change

Summer is almost over now. Only about 3 more months before it starts cooling down. So I think it is time for a change in this blog appearance. I was thinking stripes. All around the side.

Monday, August 06, 2007

Happy Birthday Holly! plans?

(We mailed something. Hopefully it gets there today. If not...I guess you have something to look forward to. And it's Melissa's fault.)

Tuesday, July 31, 2007

Holly and one of her babies.

Here is Holly with one of her seven babies.

And here she is with her newborn!

Wednesday, July 25, 2007


Okay, I have now finished the book. You may all start discussing it.

Friday, July 13, 2007

Happy Birthday Shannon!

Lookin' good Shirley.

Wednesday, July 11, 2007


Your sign is going a little crazy there. Do you have one that just has the book countdown?

Sunday, July 08, 2007

Holly's Life is boring/sucks

This post is for Melissa, to explain why I never post much.

I have worked 36 hours in the last three days (14 of those were on the Fourth of July, while everyone else was out playing).

Also, I finally figured out what happened to my apartment key. Mom has it. In Tucson.

So... yay for being repeatedly locked out of my apartment!

Catlynn visits the Vet

Catlynn had her first visit to the vet. Here are some highlights of her experience.

Leaving Humphry home
The car trip
The scary dog that was also waiting in reception
Not being able to get down from the counter
Getting her temperature taken
Cold vet hands (Seriously, you work with animals. Warm them up a bit.)
Medicine she now has to take (Although I have so much fun craming it down her throat and forcing eye drops in twice a day.)
Paying for it (Okay. That one is me)

Going home

Wednesday, June 27, 2007

Just Curious

I am thinking about doing this program. Anyone have any other options or ideas for me?

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

Humphry and Catlynn? Opinions anyone?

Monday, June 18, 2007

The kittens!

Here are the kittens. The black one is a boy, and is currently being called Doglynn. The white one is a girl, and she is being called Catlynn. Please make any name suggestions that you would like to see voted on.

Fun quotes from tonight

Richard with crab claw: "Raaaa...Raaaa"
Karen with bread crust: "Roaaaar"

Richard about poker set: "It's like sex in a box." Eeek! (Cover your eyes Holly.)

Karen chewing on Shannon's thumb.
Shannon: "Karen, you are what you eat. If you eat me, you'll become a Mommy."
Richard: "And not just any Mommy. YOUR Mommy."
Karen: "Aaaaaaaaah!"

Karen fussing. Shannon: "Hang on a minute. Let me fly this baby around the room a bit, and I'll be right back."

Sarah: "I don't ever want to see the kitties again! ...I want to live with the kitties!"


We now have a BIG TV at our house. Much bigger than 13" anyway. And all I had to do was buy a modulator to connect the component DVD output to the Coax TV input. Yay for me and my technical prowess! I own that TV now.

Also, Dad said Holly mentioned a Provo road trip around Thanksgiving time. He said that she implied all 3 of us girls down here were planning to go. And as I recall, I said I was only going if Holly got married, so... I'm thinking that's as good as an announcement.

Monday, June 11, 2007


So the pest control guy came and sprayed my apartment on Friday, and the scorpions that were stuck in traps that were sprayed directly still aren't dead yet. So, I'm not really sure how effective that was. I am thinking, maybe I will get a cat. They hunt scorpions. What do you guys think?

Thursday, June 07, 2007

Latest pics

Hmmm...I'm thinking this photographer didn't quite understand the concept of who was actually going to be picking out pictures to buy... But Karen's cute.

Saturday, June 02, 2007

My pictures

Hey...Holly finally graduated!

Karen...who's been teaching you to jump on the hotel beds?

Look!! There you are!

Ah, how cute is that...
