A splendid time is guaranteed for all

Have you ever played a CD that you hadn't listened to in years, only to realize that you still knew every single word of that album, start to finish, by heart?

There's this was released 42 years ago this coming June, which makes it older than I am. I was completely obsessed with it in my late teens. I had it on cassette then.

I finally bought it on CD about 10 years ago, obsessed on it again for a while, then put it away.

Today, for some reason, I felt like listening to it.

I put it in my CD player in my car and listened to the first half of it on the way to work. I listened to the last half of it on my way home.

I still know every. Single. Word.

What an amazing album! What a great band!

Happy birthday Jay!

Merry Christmas Blogland!

So far I have gotten:

$25 Starbucks card


Mini bottles of lotion from Bath & Body Works in Japanese Cherry Blossom, Warm Vanilla Sugar, and Velvet Tuberose.

2009 Witch's Calender


Skin care products

I'll be getting at least one other thing later when my mom's friend Sherry comes over for dinner.

My contribution to dinner tonight is dessert.

Coffee Fluff


2-1/4 cups cold milk
1 tbs. instant coffee
1 pkg. (6 serving size) Jello Instant vanilla pudding
1 pkg. Dream Whip whipped topping mix
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
Cool Whip Extra Creamy whipped topping

Dissolve coffee in milk in a medium sized mixing bowl. Add dry pudding mix, dry whipped topping mix and cinnamon. Mix with electric mixer, starting on low, gradually increasing speed until mixture forms soft peaks (3-5 minutes).

Let set in refrigerator 1 hour (or overnight) to set.

The original recipe (found in the Jello Cookbook) calls to serve it in dessert glasses as-is.

The way I do it is: spoon 2 tbs. of mixture in dessert glass. Layer 2 tbs. of Cool Whip on top of that, then 2 more tbs. of the mixture, topped with another dollop of Cool Whip.

Yule (Winter Solstice)

Yule, (pronounced EWE-elle) is when the dark half of the year relinquishes to the light half. Starting the next morning at sunrise, the sun climbs just a little higher and stays a little longer in the sky each day. Known as Solstice Night, or the longest night of the year, much celebration was to be had as the ancestors awaited the rebirth of the Oak King, the Sun King, the Giver of Life that warmed the frozen Earth and made her to bear forth from seeds protected through the fall and winter in her womb. Bonfires were lit in the fields, and crops and trees were "wassailed" with toasts of spiced cider.

Children were escorted from house to house with gifts of clove spiked apples and oranges which were laid in baskets of evergreen boughs and wheat stalks dusted with flour. The apples and oranges represented the sun, the boughs were symbolic of immortality, the wheat stalks portrayed the harvest, and the flour was accomplishment of triumph, light, and life. Holly, mistletoe, and ivy not only decorated the outside, but also the inside of homes. It was to extend invitation to Nature Sprites to come and join the celebration. A sprig of Holly was kept near the door all year long as a constant invitation for good fortune to pay visit to the residents.

The ceremonial Yule log was the highlight of the festival. In accordance to tradition, the log must either have been harvested from the householder's land, or given as a gift... it must never have been bought. Once dragged into the house and placed in the fireplace it was decorated in seasonal greenery, doused with cider or ale, and dusted with flour before set ablaze be a piece of last years log, (held onto for just this purpose). The log would burn throughout the night, then smolder for 12 days after before being ceremonially put out. Ash is the traditional wood of the Yule log. It is the sacred world tree of the Teutons, known as Yggdrasil. An herb of the Sun, Ash brings light into the hearth at the Solstice.

A different type of Yule log, and perhaps one more suitable for modern practitioners would be the type that is used as a base to hold three candles. Find a smaller branch of oak or pine, and flatten one side so it sets upright. Drill three holes in the top side to hold red, green, and white (season), green, gold, and black (the Sun God), or white, red, and black (the Great Goddess). Continue to decorate with greenery, red and gold bows, rosebuds, cloves, and dust with flour.

Deities of Yule are all Newborn Gods, Sun Gods, Mother Goddesses, and Triple Goddesses. The best known would be the Dagda, and Brighid, the daughter of the Dagda. Brighid taught the smiths the arts of fire tending and the secrets of metal work. Brighid's flame, like the flame of the new light, pierces the darkness of the spirit and mind, while the Dagda's cauldron assures that Nature will always provide for all the children.

Symbolism of Yule:
Rebirth of the Sun, The longest night of the year, The Winter Solstice, Introspect, Planning for the Future.

Symbols of Yule:
Yule log, or small Yule log with 3 candles, evergreen boughs or wreaths, holly, mistletoe hung in doorways, gold pillar candles, baskets of clove studded fruit, a simmering pot of wassail, poinsettias, christmas cactus.

R.I.P. Caylee

Skeletal remains found near the home of missing child Caylee Anthony are those of the little girl and her cause of death is homicide, the medical examiner said Friday.

"With regret, I'm here to inform you that the skeletal remains are those of the missing toddler," said Dr. Jan Garavaglia.

Garavaglia said the cause was ruled a homicide by unknown means.

Earlier, Florida police released evidence photos from the Caylee Anthony crime scene, among them one of a book they say they found in the woods that the child had been photographed reading before she vanished.

The pictures were among several cops publicized ahead of a Friday afternoon news briefing, during which authorities were expected to reveal findings about the bones and skull discovered near the little girl's family home.

The book is among numerous pieces of evidence Orange County Sheriff's deputies say they found in the privately-owned lot where a small child's skeletal remains turned up.

The press conference, scheduled for 2 p.m. EST at the Orange County Sheriff's Office, was announced by the county medical examiner.

Also Friday, police re-interviewed a county water meter reader who earlier this month discovered what likely are the girl's remains.

Detectives deny the worker is a suspect in the child's death.

The worker found bones Dec. 11 near the Orlando house where then 2-year-old Caylee lived with her mother and maternal grandparents. He also had called in a tip to police on Aug. 11, 12 and 13, telling them to look in the same area for the remains, police said.

Orange County Sheriff's officials say they believe the unidentified tipster was in the area on Dec. 11 following up on his own lead when he discovered the bones and skull.

Capt. Angelo Nieves said police are questioning the worker again, as well as the sheriff's deputy who took the original call. They want to know more about what prompted him to contact authorities and how they handled the tips.

The meter reader first called Aug. 11 to report a bag by the side of the road, reported. A deputy wasn't able to locate the worker, the station said.

The following day, the meter reader called a crime hotline. The information was passed on to the Orange County Sheriff's criminal investigation division.

And on Aug. 13, the utility worker called cops a third time, reported. He met with police, and a deputy did go into the wooded area to investigate the worker's claims, but didn't find anything. The scene was then cleared as a possible place of interest in the case.

There is now an internal probe under way within the police department into how the matter was handled.

"There are a lot of questions about the thoroughness of that response," Nieves told

Investigators were back at the wooded crime scene Thursday in their exhaustive dig for evidence. They said late Thursday they found additional bones that appear to be from a child.

Meanwhile, a representative for the defense lawyer of Caylee's mother Casey Anthony accused police of lying to the press and suggested they could be tampering with evidence at the site where a little child's bones were found.

Todd Black, a spokesman for Anthony's lead attorney Jose Baez, complained that investigators won't let the defense team observe their work at the scene where remains believed to be those of Anthony's daughter Caylee were discovered.

"Some of their comments are blatant lies," Black told "History has shown that in some cases authorities have been caught tampering with evidence. That is something we hope is not happening. We're not accusing anyone of anything."

Anthony, 22, has been charged with the little girl's murder and is being held in jail without bond.

Police said the bones discovered in the Caylee Anthony investigation could be identified by the end of the day on Thursday or on Friday.

Nieves remained tight-lipped about the nature of the evidence detectives have found at the site.

Some reports suggested teeth had been discovered.

Orange County Medical Examiner Dr. Jan Garavaglia — who has her own Discovery Channel TV show and calls herself "Dr. G." — is handling the tests. Her office said Thursday that they didn't know when the results would be ready but would put out a report when they were.'s Catherine Donaldson-Evans and FOX News' Phil Keating contributed to this report.

May your murdering psycho-bitch of a mother burn in Hell for all etertiny.

Chad in an Elmo suit

The concert last night was flippin' awesome. I'm tired, sore, hoarse, dehydrated, and my ears are still ringing. Jared says it sounds like I have some sort of disease. Called metal-itis.



First off, on the way to the show, Chele gave me some great news.

She's pregnant.

YAY! I'm gonna be Auntie Cherlyn! She and Henry are thrilled and I'm so excited for them. =]

So we get to the venue a little late due to traffic. We were gonna try for a spot on the balcony, but that was a no-go, so we ended up on the floor toward the back instead. We were right underneath the edge of the balcony. Through the whole show, I felt this need to protect my pregnant friend from moshers. I did a couple of times.

The first band was a local band called Hobgoblin. I'm pretty sure the NorVa always has local bands for openers. I Think it's been local bands every time I've been to a show there.

Next up was Snot.

I'd heard of them, but never really heard any of their stuff. I liked them a lot. I'm gonna have to get a CD or two of theirs.

At some point during Snot's set, someone's shirt fell on my head. It was pretty funny. It was a girl's pink shirt. We looked to the balcony above us to see if anyone looked like they were looking for it. No one did. So we chucked it on the floor.

10 Years was next.

They were really good. I'd heard they put on a great show, and they did not disappoint. They were heavier live than I expected them to be. For me, that's a good thing.

You know how when you go to a concert there's always music playing over the speakers between sets?

Well, after 10 Years' set, while the stage was getting set up for Mudvayne, whoever was in charge of what music gets played between sets decided to put on Metallica's Master of Puppets CD. As in, it played straight through 5 or 6 songs. I was a happy camper. So were a lot of other people. You could hear people singing along with it. "MASTER! MASTER!"

Then came Mudvayne.

Oh. My. Fucking. GOD!

They were amazing.

I loved every second of it. For some reason, Chad (the vocalist <3) came out wearing what looked like an Elmo suit. He was also sporting a red mohawk that looked pretty damn good. He changed clothes mid-set though, so that was good. The Elmo suit was distracting.

Not Falling
- 1
Death Blooms
Do What You Do
Fall Into Sleep
World So Cold
Nothing to Gein

Absolutely perfect setlist.

I'd say the best performance of the night was Nothing To Gein. It's a very intense song to begin with, but performance was spine-tingling. I was hoping to find a video on youtube of that, but there's not one yet. I'll give it a couple of days.

But I did find one good quality video from last night.

This is - 1

See? Elmo!

Since no one played... movie meme game, and because I have nothing else to write about today, here are the answers for the quotes. I'll name the movie the quote is from, the character who said it, and the actor that played them.

1: This job would be great if it wasn't for the fucking customers.
- Randal Graves (Jeff Anderson) Clerks.

2: There's only one "Return" ok? And it ain't "Of The King," it's "Of The Jedi."

3: I won't quake and bow down like the sycophants you have around you.
- Cleitus (Gary Stretch) Alexander

3: Stop. Police. Murder.
- Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder) Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

4: It's impossible, Lois could never have Superman's baby. Do you think her fallopian tubes could handle the sperm? I guarantee you he blows a load like a shotgun right through her back. What about her womb? Do you think it's strong enough to carry his child?
- Brodie Bruce (Jason Lee) Mallrats

5: You're a fucking ugly bitch. I want to stab you to death, and then play around with your blood.
- Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) American Psycho

6: Goddamn, motherfucker got blood all over my best clown suit.
- Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig) House of 1000 Corpses

7: I am the devil, and I am here to do the devil's work.

- Glen Lantz (Johnny Depp) A Nightmare On Elm St.

10: Those girls... they're eating grapes off the wallpaper. They're crazy.
- Toby Jacobs (Jared Leto) Girl, Interrupted

I would like to point out that when Jared read the initial post, he said, and I quote, "I don't see any Leto movie quotes."

There are quotes from 3 of his movies on there.

One of them was his.

In his defence, he did say he just kind of skimmed it.

I just felt like giving him shit.

<3 ya Jay! lol

Where the hell...

...are all my readers? What the fuck?


When I got off work tonight, I went to buy a six-pack of Bacardi Silver pomegranate mojitos. I grab one and go up to the check-out.

When I get up there, I notice that some previous customer was tampering with the six-packs of Bacardi Silver mojitos.

The one I had contained 3 of the pomegranate, 2 regular, and one mango.

I didn't feel like going all the way back to the back of the store to get a normal six-pack, so I went ahead and got what I had.

The mango is pretty tasty. =]

My latest discovery

Fucking YUM!

I am apparently obsessed with all things pomegranate.

Sunday, December 7, 2008

Jesus was Goth**

Jade showed me this. I lol'd.
**This is a joke. Please take it as such.
(clicking links will take you to pictures and stuff from the source site)

Jesus never referred to himself as goth. Everyone knows the gothest thing someone can do is deny he/she is a goth (case in point: Andrew Elritch and The Sisters of Mercy).

He is referred to as Lord Jesus. Even to this day, people call him Lord Jesus, much like other gothlings go by titles such as Lord Ashtoroth, or Lord Wolfbane. It wasn't so cheesy, in the beginning....

He was mocked by "normals." Even the gothest goth of them all was made fun of by ignorant rednecks and trendies.

Jesus was obsessed with death. Yes, he lived and breathed it, to to speak. He hung out in tombs with dead guys like Lazarus. He also spent time with lepers.

Jesus was secretly a vampire. At his last supper he said, "This cup means the new covenant by virtue of my blood." Transubstantiation is nothing but a fancy spell that changes wine into real blood! After all, how else could Jesus promise eternal life? In addition, when Jesus was up on the cross, the sun went dark so he wouldn't get those nasty sunburns vamps are so prone to.

He was always depressed. Think about it. What real Goth is ever happy? With all the exciting masochistic stuff he went through, is it any wonder that "Jesus wept?" He was, after all, known as the "man of sorrows."

Jesus was a great dresser. C'mon now. He might not have worn black all the time, but just take a close look at all those pictures we see of Christ. He wore long flowing robes, looking positively ethereal in white, or sombre in blood red. He wasn't afraid to pull gender-benders, either, which proved very influential to the San Francisco goth scene. He tended to wear a lot of dresses and skirts, yet somehow still look both undeniably male and sexy! And check out the fashion accessories. A crown of thorns or funeral shroud are the epitome of angst-fashion.

He went to the coolest clubs and dens of iniquity. Jesus hung out with the real "alternative" crowd of the time. His buddies were tax-collectors, feishists, and women of ill-repute. He also literally hung around with murderers (check out the cross scene), once again showing his fascination with death.

Christ surrounded himself with goth chicks. Mary Magdalene and Veronica were two of the first goth-chicks, but Jesus also has a horde of gothic groupies. How else would you describe all those nuns/brides of Christ? They wear all black and white, and are heavy into crosses, rosaries, and the contemplation of holy masochism.

He had the gaunt look down pat. You have to admit, few pictures you've ever seen of the guy had him rosy-cheeked and robust. The man was positively scrawny and white. He had cheekbones from Hell, and even his hipbones stuck way out.

He was big on crucifixes. Crosses are very goth. Jesus liked them so much that he would occasionally carry a huge one around with him. He was somewhat partial to ankhs too!

Christ was into body piercing. He only did it a few times, but what a statement he made with his piercings! He had a huge-guage piercing gun zap his hands, feet, and side. To top it all off, he did it all in front of an audience, making him one of the first performance artists. Here's a picture of his stage-hands helping him set up for his first piercing act.

Jesus was fascinated with the occult. When Jesus wasn't hanging around with whores and lepers, he was often out consorting with demons. He liked to find people possessed with evil spirits so that he could order the demons around. Once he even told a bunch of demons to go live in a herd of swine. To top it all off, he even went comparison shopping with Satan once. Here he is dissing the devil.

He spent time in tombs. Like I mentioned before, he hung out with Lazarus in one once, but there's much more to it. He once pretended to be dead for three days so that he could sleep in one. How goth can you get? I'll bet you never lived in a tomb. Only Christ, vampires, and Poppy Z. Brite characters get to do that.

Jesus knew how to party. Once he went to this wedding where everyone was a bunch of tight-asses. All they wanted to drink was water, but he fooled them. He went and switched wine (or was it absinthe?) for the water! Voila! Instant party!

Jesus was into kinky domination and submission. Okay, we all know that he liked to hang out with harlots. That's been quite established, even by the most zealous of right-wing Christians. But what did the big C do with these lovely ladies of the night? Well, he had them wipe his feet with their hair and tears. And let's not forget what he did to the moneychangers in his Dad's temple!

He was into fishnet. Jesus rarely went anywhere without his trusty fishnet. Occasionally, he would get a bit sick of it, and would throw it overboard while boating, but one of his disciples would always give it back to him. Of course, the disciple would clean all the fish out of it first.

Writer's Workshop

From Kathy's blog

Describe a time when your pet caused chaos.

Shortly after we got married, my (now ex) husband, Bob, and I acquired 2 pets.

Morpheus was a beautiful black cat with striking green eyes. He was 5 months old when we adopted him from the ASPCA. Soon after we adopted him, we discovered he had a bit of a mean streak. His favorite game was to sneak up on you, bite you, HARD, and run away.

Maxine, or Maxie, as we called her, was a 2 1/2 year old German Shepherd mix that was given to us by some friends who could no longer keep her. She was such so loving and affectionate. Best dog ever. In caps. BEST. DOG. EVER.

Maxie was one of those dogs that would eat pretty much anything (aren't all dogs like that really?). We had to keep Morph's food on top of the washing machine because we quickly learned that Maxie would eat it all if we didn't.

We kept all the pet treats in a cabinet over the refrigerator because we didn't put it past Maxie to get into the lower cabinets and eat them all.

What we didn't take into account was the fact the Morph was a climber.

Bob and I had been out for the evening. We came home to find the brand new bag of dog treats we'd bought that day, and put in the high cabinet, torn open and empty in the middle of the living room. We went to the bedroom to find, lying on our bed, a very guilty looking dog. She also looked like she wasn't feeling too hot. We put her leash on her and took her outside, since we'd been out for a few hours. She promptly threw up. We were just grateful she'd kept it in until we got her outside.

Later on, we pieced together what happened.

The kitchen counter went flush up against the refrigerator. Morph could easily jump from the floor to the counter to the top of the fridge. He must have pawed open the cabinet and knocked the bag of dog treats onto the floor.

Either one of them could have torn the bag open. Morph wasn't declawed, and we weren't as good about keeping Max's nails trimmed as we could have been. And Maxie, being Maxie, ate all the treats.

Thankfully she was feeling much better the next day.
