Guess what I watched...

The Aristocats!

I used to have a tape of this movie’s soundtrack and I listened to it every night before going to bed. It was really weird to hear the exact same dialogues and songs 20+ years later! Still totally cute, though!!

Don't you just hate it...

when you're supposed to be on vacation but end up spending 2 hours at work? when your boss keep telling you that nobody's irreplaceable and that your job got done (and well done) before you were here, but he still asks you to come while you're supposed to be home for a well deserved free week? Uuuuuugh!!

On a more positive note, I ordered the food for my birthday party today. It'll be simple and casual, buffet-style, not much to do myself. I'm not the best cook, especially when I have 15 guests... Yep, FIFTEEN!!! LOL

Guy's niece Julie, who turned 18 this summer, will bring her boyfriend over. He wasn't supposed to come, but finally he'll be here. I can't wait to meet him, to be honest I'm really curious. It'll be fun to see how Guy will react too: he's not only Julie's uncle, he's also his godfather and he saw her when she was just born (he keeps reminding her that he saw her "naked, purple and in a glass box"... She loves it, as you can imagine! LOL), so he's very protective with her. He already plans to have a "guys' talk" with the poor boyfriend who doesn't even know what he'll have to face! LOL It's gonna be interesting, for sure!!

Have a nice day everyone!

A fun halloween-ish personality test

I'm all about Halloween these days... and we don't even celebrate it here! LOL

Here's a test for SSD's FOB2Y:

What Your Jack-o-Lantern Says

You tend to be a goofy, optimistic person.

You enjoy Halloween more than anyone else you know.

This Halloween be as silly as you can - dress up as a giant version of a small object

The candy you should give out: laffy taffy

This test is funny, and this is sooooo me! I don't like to dress up usually, but I'd love to dress up as a giant version of a small object! LOL

New LO

First good news: I'm on vacation! Yayayayay!!! I had some tough days at work last week so it feels just wonderful to be home and enjoy some free time!

Second good news: I scrapped and enjoyed it! I was feeling some pressure recently when I scrapped, don't know why, but not this time: I just enjoyed it!!! How great!! Here's the LO:

For SSD’s Slogan #30 and TDC’s Scraplift challenges.

Have a good evening everyone!!

Sad decision but great news for you

Hey you all digiscrappers out there! LOL Unfortunately I had to make a difficult decision and leave Victoria Greenlees' CT. I'm sad because I love the team and Vici's product, but right now I don't have enough time to promote those products as they deserve. As we're several in that case, Vici is having a CT call... that's the good news! She is such a fabulous designer to work for, the team is really great and the goodies are just amazing! Take your chance and apply! Have a look here for all details. Good luck!!

So mad...

I had a very hard arguement with my boss tonight. It was very violent, and I was completely freaked out afterwards. I could hardly breathe, I almost had a panic attack. He would have punched me that it wouldn't have been more shocking. Such a mean person! I went to my doc who asked if I wanted to be at home for depression, but since I took some free days (before all this happened), I will keep them and see if things get better after some rest. I didn't sleep much last night so that didn't help, but still, he's just a *%§@*#!!! Someone give me a punching ball, please!!

Ugh!!! (weigh in)

Well, after loosing 900g last week (2 lbs), I gained them back this week, plus 2 more lbs. Argh!!! I hate to think that I'm back on track and be hit back by the tough truth a week later!

  • cook 3 meals (1 pretty bad, but the other two were really good! LOL)
  • bake cupcakes that I wanted to try before my b'day parties
  • back up LOs on DVD's (last one is getting burnt right now
Not bad, uh? Pfew, I feel exhausted just by looking at this list! LOL Off to watch CSI and work on some favors for my b'day guests. Have a nice start of your week!

Fast food

SSD's blog challenge last week was about fast food... BAD topic for someone like me who's trying to lose weight: it makes me hungry!!! LOL We don't have much fast foods around here: basically just Mc Donald's and Quick (a french version of Mc Donalds). I love them both, especially because I'm more a salt lover than a sweet tooth, so french fries and hamburgers are just my kind of treat. But my absolutely fave take out restaurant is a traditional one here in my small town, named "Bim Buewele". The couple that have this place are just the sweetest people ever. We feel so at home there (except the food is much better! LOL). Sometimes, when we don't feel like going out, we take food home... Yummy!!! What I love is "Bibeleskaes", some sort of yogurt served with onions, bacon, garlic, herbs and fried potatoes. Another of my favorites is "Grumberekechle" (grated potatoes, fried, like the swiss röstis) with salad. Both of those traditional alsacian meals are not very healthy, so unfortunately I try to limit the times we go to this restaurant, but it's sooooooo good. Have a look here if you wanna get hungry (and if you understand French)! LOL
