Blame these three for voting. October and November we were busy watching debates, attending voting parties, and making important decisions. We took this very very seriously!
Friday...which means I will be on vacation for many many days and only 2 more days until the Ring Boyz come home! So super excited for their return.

The snow keeps coming. The sun is out today but rumor has it more is on its way.

I think today will be a 5 star day for all of us.

This is true.

This is Tacoma.

Last night precious and sweet Carol hosted the best Holiday dinner party EVA! There was wine of all kinds, vegan friendly dishes, cherry pie, and lovely people. We love her for all of this. She also had the cutest mini Christmas Tree I have ever seen.

To top it off there was SNOW and yes we walked through Tacoma in the snow with friends to Peoples Park and the bush animals at Tacoma General. Wright Park was lit up with a pink sky and the Hob Nob sign said "Santa is Coming". For a minute I really thought that might happen.

We miss the Ring Boyz and they will freeze when they return to Tacoma but we will be waiting with open hearts and their friends will keep them warm.

Monday nights in Tacoma are similar to Friday nights in most cities. Tacoma is becoming strange. There is a blend of ice, snow, extremely cold weather, and BFF's missing. Mel and I joined her brother Al (visiting from CA) and a friend for some bowling at pins in Proctor. It was cute to see the brother sister competition between Mel and Al. My major concern Monday night was the extreme cold made it hard to complete a cigarette which is a real set back on my smoking goal for the winter.

Monday night Bowling and $2.75 pints at Magoos.

I really am personally excited (American way not the French way. Ask me I will explain) for the week to end so I can begin my 2 week relief from WORK!

If possible I would suggest going to a warmer climate I don't know, maybe Hawaii or India would be nice.

Beware STORM Warning 2008!

Snow predicted for Wednesday, Sunday

Published: December 16th, 2008 11:49 AM Updated: December 16th, 2008 11:52 AM

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for tonight and Wednesday across Washington as forecasters expect more snow to fall across the frozen state.
There’s another chance of snow Sunday as the cold continues.

The coldest temperatures have been in Eastern Washington where it was 3 below zero this morning at the Spokane airport, 3 below at Yakima and 1 below at the Tri-Cities.

Western Washington is typically warmer, and Sea-Tac Airport reports a predawn 22 degrees.

For a second day many schools delayed opening because of the cold and slick streets.

The main mountain passes have compact snow and ice.

The Transportation Department reports no restrictions on Snoqualmie Pass; traction tires advised on Stevens.

Thursday the girls stayed in and worked on girl things such as tanning, masking, hair dying, cleaning and reading Cosmo. I will publish our quiz results later, stay tuned.

Friday we were pre-funkin at PG having some PomDrops when we noticed that Mr. and Mrs. Claus were dining by the window. We went undercover trying to capture an image so look closely. This really got us into the holiday spirit which drew us to Winterfest today on the Thea Foss Waterway.

The weather is cold cold cold and there was tiny snowflakes falling for about 10 seconds.

Things are becoming very critical. After enjoying a relaxing meal at Quickies Too Mel coughed and her rib hurt. We ended up at St. Joe’s ER which in itself was an experience! Don’t worry friends, Mel is OK!

The other concern on Wednesday night is our horoscopes pulled from the Stranger. They are so deep.

Tacoma won’t be the same without the Ring Boyz. They leave for a brainstorming session at the beach and we will miss their cute faces.

Leo: When he's in his prime, a male panda performs an average of eight handstands a day. There is no apparent evolutionary purpose in this stunt. He does it because it feels good. I suggest you make him your role model in the coming week, Leo. Identify three activities you can do not because they are “good for you” or because they’ll advance some goal you are pursuing, but simply for the sheer fun of it. If you can’t think of any playtime endeavors that fit this description, do the meditation and research necessary to find some. Whatever deeds you ultimately settle on, do them at least eight times a day.

Virgo: It might be a good idea to temporarily avoid wearing stiletto heels, Virgo. The risk of slipping while wearing them is greater than usual. In a similar vein, I suggest you refrain from tightrope walking, putting yourself on a pedestal, or dreaming of climbing a ladder to the clouds. Two more suggestions: Don’t look down on people whom you imagine are inferior to you, and don’t promise more than you can deliver. You catch my drift? Stay away from high and mighty forms of expression. Choose low, deep, and funky positions instead. Be as down-to-earth as you can possibly be.

After rushing to Corina Bakery to pick up some vegan cake (chocolate tonight) it was really hard for the evening to get much better. The only thing that can top that is the orange dreamsicle cake. If you have not absorb my favorite thing in the world that I just mentioned you will someday.

Our sides hurt. Some are bruises, sumz is food. Food babies. Tonight we are listening to the new Kanye West album. The debate of whether this one will stay in the player for more than tonight is ON.

After Kyle's "Last Night in America" it seems like nothing else can happen, ever. There has been a few five star days listed in The News Tribune. The accuracy is questionable. I will point out on behalf of Mel some 3 star days have transformed into 5 star days!
As close as you can become to life in Tacoma is marked with rumors of ancient myths of Monday nights where you dance in cars, chain smoke, and roam freely as if this could be your last chance to engage. Where have you gone, where are you going and why do we do this? The dime you once picked up from the floor has become a trail that you blocked with boards and nails.

The girls met a man named Ira at Pacific Grill tonight. He hugged us goodnight and told us to live dangerously. Ira was a man who owned his own software consulting business. Ira offered us jobs and told me to send him my resume. He was just passing through. I do believe tonight he wanted to stay in Tacoma with the girls but, we had other important things to attend to on this Monday evening. Ira, huh...a strange name for a man who ordered two meals.

Tomorrow, get crafty, take some time to relax and Melanie, finish cleaning your bedroom.
