santa ishi



i think i make a pretty good santa - what do you think?

ok, ok



so, there has been a serious lack of blogging lately, and i do apologize. hope everyone is having a great holiday. i went on a gift wrapping rampage earlier, and now i'm enjoying a glass of wine and trying to stay warm. if any of my dallas friends are reading this and are not doing the family thing tomorrow, hit me up! we should eat food and dance a little bit.

anyway, here are some songs for you to enjoy...

civic duties

here's hoping everyone went out and voted today. here are a few election related links you might enjoy.



photo by victoriabernal

samhita from feministing on why she baracked the vote with a great perspective as a south asian growing up in america.

found a new blog written by two sassy old ladies in texas who have been writing about the election. I don't think i could pick a favorite post, but this one is a good start.

we just live here - what would happen if more of us could vote?

and saving the best for last, t-rex has a brilliant and hilarious solution for uniformed voting.

costumes

i'm working on my halloween costume this week and i'm really excited about it - i'll post some pictures next week after my sisters costume party. for now, i'll tie you over with me in a mustache.



btw... i received so many compliments on this it was a little scary! i guess i look good as a hairy dude!

fried fun

i went to the texas state fair twice this year - once for a group outing with my co-workers and again with neil and his co-workers. i haven't been to the fair since high school, and it was really fun to see all the weird fried food options. i don't know if these are new, but i certainly don't remember them being there before.

anyway, here is a sampling of what i saw: fried bacon, fried marshmallows, fried snickers, fried cheesecake, fried ice cream, fried peanut butter & jelly & banana sandwich, fried coke, fried cookie dough, fried moonpies, and fried green tomatoes to name a few.

the fried coke was a complete mystery to me and i was slightly dissapointed that it was only fried batter in some coke with whipped cream on top. dennis ordered one - here's a picture...



and a few more pictures here

dreamy

wishing i were back on the beach but enjoying sleeping in my own bed. it's still dark when i wake up for work. a lot of things are changing these days, but you just have to take it as it comes, i suppose. for now i'll just go along with it and see where it takes me. hope you all have a great weekend.

bad habits

unfortunately, i have many bad habits... i try to feel better by reminding myself that i'm not the only one.

i read these five tips on how to break a bad habit and found them pretty motivating and true in cases where i've been able to break them.

here's a brief list - but i highly suggest you read the full version on the blog:
1. get a running start
2. try to change your habits during a busy time
3. no exceptions - do not give in to temptation on any relapses
4. head off temptation
5. consider marshmallows

neil is showing me how to stretch canvas - so we got to go the lumber store and use his power tools, fun! i'm not a great painter, or even a very good one, but i do have something in mind which should be easy enough for me and be fun to do.
