Honestly, was there ever any doubt?

"As adults we make assumptions about what works for children," said Penny Curtis, a senior lecturer in research at the university."We found that clowns are universally disliked by children. Some found them quite frightening and unknowable."

I'll take a tub of eels, thanks. No clowns.

OMG I AM EXCITED!!!!

Today I bought a new piano! Well, it's not exactly new, but it's new to me :D || HUNTINGTON UPRIGHT PIANO || )

Each year here in Denver, Metro State has a piano and guitar sale -- my mom and step-dad went down on Friday and purchased a cute little Baldwin spinnet, and they saw the Huntington piano. My mom said, "Oh, yes, that's Julie's piano!" Heh! I've been looking around at pianos for about a year now; I used to play as a kid, but never really learned how to read music. Learning how to read music and play piano is definitely on my Things to Do In My Lifetime list, so I'm quite thrilled. Of course, antique pianos have a different sound than newer ones -- they tend to be more muted (although not necessarily less robust) and have a sound that I can only describe as somewhat muffled, but that's not exactly the right word. Seeing as no-one here is a concert pianist, I'm not worried about having a piano with a perfect sound quality. The upright and antique style will go perfectly in our home.

It'll be delivered tomorrow morning! I've saved all my sheet music and music books that I have collected over the years -- I have a good amount to start with. A lot of musical theater books, natch, plus Disney and some really cool retro books and individual sheet music that I inherited from my grandmother.

I'll take some pics tomorrow once it's here and in its place -- we're putting it in the dining area.

*tickled!*

What Julie Means

You are fair, honest, and logical. You are a natural leader, and people respect you.
You never give up, and you will succeed... even if it takes you a hundred tries.
You are rational enough to see every part of a problem. You are great at giving other people advice.

You are a very lucky person. Things just always seem to go your way.
And because you're so lucky, you don't really have a lot of worries. You just hope for the best in life.
You're sometimes a little guilty of being greedy. Spread your luck around a little to people who need it.

You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow.
You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily.
Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.


This is actually fairly accurate. Funny, that.

Gakked from [livejournal.com profile] boingboing_net: Rankin, photographer and founder of Dazed and Confused magazine, created an incredible photographic series of more than a dozen decontextualized irises. Scrolling horizontally back and forth across these images is quite trance-inducing. The project is called Eyescapes. LINK

I think this decontextualized iris most closely resembles my eye color, as my shade of blue is very dark.



What about you? Which decontextualized iris most closely resembles your eye color? Leave a comment with your decontextualized iris! (I uploaded the image to Scrapbook, fwiw)

. . . that's right, beeyotches -- I totally fixed the plumbing in my kitchen by myself, because I have no money to pay a plumber, especially on Christmas Eve. The u-bend became clogged and I disassembled the pipes, cleaned out the clog, caught the water from the sink in a bucket, and put the pipes back together. If nothing else, it forced me to clean out the crap under my sink. How I fit all those cleaning supplies down there I'll never know.

Carry on!

This morning I've made sugar cookie dough, mashed potatoes for 15, sliced carrots for 15, prepared hot artichoke dip for baking tomorrow, and sliced celery sticks for 15. I also started the turkey roasting, but it didn't smell right. You know, anyone familiar with cooking just knows when something doesn't smell right. It just smelled off, so I'm dumping the turkey, unroasted. Better safe than sorry -- I'm not risking anyone's health just to get my $13 worth. Anyhow, it's back to the kitchen, where I'll be making Fool's Toffee (OMG, CRACK) and possibly a carrot cake.

Anyone have any recipes for a foolproof icing for classic Christmas cookies? Butter icing is even better.

Speaking of crack, anyone else had the new limited edition cherry-chocolate Diet Dr. Pepper? Holy crap that stuff is to die for, and I'm totally not a fan of cherry-flavored soda. It's so nice -- try it if you haven't. I'm glad it's a limited edition, because I could easily get addicted to it ala Diet Mtn Dew. I can have the occasional soda, but I have to let it go flat first (which is fine -- it doesn't bother me as long as it's very cold. YMMV) because the carbonation can cause stretching of my new stomach. NEVER MIND THAT, THOUGH, GO TRY THE CRACK!!!! And give props to Pepsi Co. for using the "Chocolate Rain" guy from YouTube for the marketing campaign.

Busy weekend, this one. I spent most of the day cooking and doing food prep. Tomorrow, I'm having my mom and step-dad for dinner. We always do our gift exchange on either Christmas Eve or thereabouts, so the kids can have time to appreciate their gifts from Grandma and Grandpa before the deluge that is Christmas morning. That said, to be fair to myself, I don't provide a deluge of gifts for my kids -- they have five presents each, plus stocking stuffers. I hit the dollar store -- you know, the dollar store has some interesting stuff if you're willing to sort through the bins. Anyhow, tomorrow night's menu consists of: Beef Bourguinon, fresh carrots prepared in butter and baked new potatoes with Parisien herbs. For dessert I'm just serving chocolate-covered bing cherries from Harry & David. The beef is marinading right now.

|| RECIPE : BEEF BOURGUINON || EPICURIOUS.COM || )

I am also brining a turkey, which I will roast tomorrow. I usually buy a turkey at Christmas time, as they're cheap. I freeze the meat for casseroles and soups. I cooked the gizzards for a gravy base and fed the liver and heart to the dogs (after whirling it in the food processor)

I have two items to purchase tomorrow: more Christmas cards and a foursome of M*A*C eyeshadows for my niece. After that, I'm done with my shopping. Hmm, I'm almost tempted to go tonight and just get it over with. *ponders* I mean, it's going to suck either way . . . hmm. I mailed out 20 cards on Tuesday, but ran out of cards! This gave me time to complete a 2007 holiday letter. I haven't done a holiday letter in like five years, but I've always enjoyed it traditionally. It's good to get back into the swing of things.

Also, I'm three months out from my surgery, so I suppose more "AFTER" pictures will soon by forthcoming.

I've decided to do the Year in Review meme, but I'll make that a separate post.

When I left the house this morning I FOUND A DEAD PIGEON FROZEN TO MY WINDSHIELD!!!! Not only that, but it was not in one piece. I had to chip it off my windshield with my ice scraper. Then, I ran the wipers and feathers went everywhere. Y'all know how I feel about pigeons. *pukes*

Oh, yes, Precious, it must have it, it must: The Brit Pop Box: UK Indie, Shoegaze and Brit-Pop Gens of the Last Millennium... Disc 1, the first of THE BRIT BOX's four chronologically ordered CDs, roughly spans 1984-1990. Seminal U.K. artists including The Smiths, Jesus & Mary Chain and The Stone Roses take timeless guitar-pop and freshly reinvent it, while groups including Happy Mondays and Primal Scream borrow gleefully from hip-hop to give birth to acid house.

Disc 2, spanning '90 to '93, explores bands that came to be known in the British press as “shoegazers,” acts that spent more time looking at their feet than making eye contact with their audiences. Featuring tracks by Ride, My Bloody Valentine, The Telescopes and others, the music courses through a sonic space comprised of introspective soundscapes, hazy guitars and dense production.

Disc 3, focusing heavily on '94-'95, opens with Suede's “Metal Mickey.” Throughout, the song sequence heralds the arrival of Brit-pop, and hugely popular bands including Oasis, Blur, Pulp, and Elastica.

Disc 4, THE BRIT BOX's final CD, shows that even latecomers to the party like Ash, Super Furry Animals, Mansun, The Verve, and Placebo had some smashing songs in them.


Also, dudes, it comes in a red telly-fone booth shaped box! *GIPs* Anyhow, I just spent a week in November collecting all the Jesus and Mary Chain albums, which was not easy. I have to say, I really love Rhino Records -- it's the modern version of K-Tel or RonCo records. While not Rhino, today from iTunes I purchased the Mad Men (AMC) soundtrack and Christmas Memories by Lawrence Welk.

Spent the weekend housecleaning and gift shopping. The first stop of the season was, of course, Target, followed by Bath & Body Works. I won an auction on eBay for 6 "The Perfect Christmas Tree" wallflower scent diffusers for $23.00, including shipping, which is better than the current price of 4 for $20. Oh, wait, I'm supposed to be shopping for everyone else... tomorrow it's back to Target to pick up the pictures I ordered through oFoto, and then to Macy's for the MIL and birth mother gifts. On Wednesday, I'll transfer the money I've been saving for Christmas gifts and hit my Amazon wish list for the kids' gifts. Dh wants a set of nice headphones (I'm looking at a Bose set) and I thought I'd get him a new monogrammed robe and some slippers.

Our Christmas tree looks really gorgeous -- I'll post some pics this week. I need to recharge my camera battery first. It's a true Victorian tree!




As to everyone losing their shit over LJ being sold to a Russian company, I don't know whether it's a good or bad thing, and frankly if my personal experience continues to be satisfactory... I admit it -- I don't really care who owns LJ. My personal hill to die on does not -- and probably never will -- involve fighting for the right to post NC-17 fannish material to a specific blog site in a publicly accessible manner (and, in fact, I tend to err on the side of password protected sites, to be honest) , so the whole previous kerfuffle involving 6A and whatnot? Yeah, totally not blippin' on my radar. Others feel differently, and I respect their right to plant that flag on that hill.

Today I gave away every goddamned diet book I had. I've been collecting diet books for . . . hmm . . . fifteen years? Sommat like that anyway. But, my God, how freeing it was to get rid of the books . . . Thin For Life, Eat More, Weigh Less, The Paleo Diet, Dr. Atkins Diet Revolution, You: On a Diet, Protein Power, five books on candida-free eating, a cholesterol cookbook, a metric buttload of Weight Watchers materials and many, many more. I have to admit, as I did so, I got teary-eyed. It's just that I've been living with obesity for so long - sometimes it seems like a dream, that I'm actually losing weight. I'm not sure how far down I am by now, but at last count I had lost 43 pounds -- that was about three weeks ago? I will see my doctor next week for my vitamin B12 shot, so I'll see if I can sneak back to the scale. I do not have a scale in my house right now and, you know, that's actually okay, as I'm an obsessive scale watcher in general. For the first time on Monday, I had a client ask, "Geez, have you lost weight?" It was the first time someone asked me if I'd lost weight, who didn't know I've had the bypass.

We're gathering tomorrow for the family dinner at my sister's ex-husband's home in Henderson, which is a first. Our family specializes in amicable divorces. Anyhow, I'm quite proud of myself because I actually was uber prepared for Thanksgiving this year. I baked 10 pounds of Yukon Gold potatoes on Sunday -- today, I peeled and cut them up (so much easier than peeling raw and then boiling) and made some kick-ass mashy tay-tays. Recipe: 10 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cooked; 1 stick butter, melted; 1 pint heavy whipping cream; 2-3 cups chicken broth; salt to taste. Combine and mash ingredients; reheat prior to serving and garnish with chopped chives or parsley, or herbs of choice (I'm using a light sprinkle of Penzey's Bonne Herbs (Parisien). Tomorrow I'll bake the rolls right before we leave for Doug's. The gravy -- classic brown -- is prepared and ready to reheat. I may even whip up some cranberry relish using a recipe I heard on NPR this morning, if I feel arsed to. We'll see!

Last weekend I put up our Christmas tree. Our tradition is to decorate the tree either on Thanksgiving evening or over the weekend following. We have a nine foot, skinny tree, and I use a lot of lights and am super anal about their placement. I wanted the tree to be ready for the ornaments, so I spent a few days on the tree, making sure the branches were properly fluffed and arranged, and then I put on the lights using red minis and gold/glitter bubble lights. Gryffindor colors, heh! It looks really pretty, especially as we have yellow and red paint on the walls.

Otherwise, I've been gorging myself sick on cover songs over at [livejournal.com profile] audiography, which is totally a 100% black OR white thing. Either I like the cover, or I completely do not. A lot of the songs are misses for me, but I've also found some terrific gems.

So, I have this dress in black:



I hate my upper arms, so I have this really cute black cardigan that will go over the top of the dress . . . but, can I wear these awesome, rich scarlet/wine tights that I have with black heels? I know monochromatic is always considered the best choice, but I don't want to be dressed in black from head to toe.

Or, should I wait and get a different-colored sweater and go with monochromatic on the black? This has been bothering me all day.

FWIW, I'm thinking of going for the scarlet tights, but I can take the WTFness if that would be horrific.

Denver Public Schools Closing 8 Schools: DENVER – Monday, Superintendent Michael Bennet of the Denver Public School District unveiled his list of eight schools the district plans to close.

-Remington Elementary School, 4735 Pecos St., Denver
-Smedley Elementary School, 4250 Shoshone St., Denver
-Del Pueblo Elementary School, 750 Galapago St., Denver
-Whitman Elementary School, 451 Newport St., Denver
-Fallis Elementary School, 6700 E Virginia Ave., Denver
-Mitchell Elementary School, 1350 E 33rd Ave., Denver
-Wyman Elementary School, 1690 Williams St., Denver
-Hallett Elementary School, 2950 Jasmine St., Denver

Bennet also listed five schools that will be reformed under his plan:

-Horace Mann Middle School, 4130 Navajo St., Denver
-Place Middle School, 7125 Cherry Creek North Dr., Denver
-Gilpin K-8, 2949 California St., Denver
-Kunsmiller Middle School, 2250 S. Quitman Way, Denver
-Cole Middle School, 3240 Humboldt St., Denver

Now, Mitchell Elementary is our home school, although we choiced in to Bromwell Elementary and were lucky enough to get the children slots. Seriously, that was a crapshoot -- it's one of the top performing schools. Interestingly, the academic requirements are not as rigorous as the charter school in Jefferson County where Ariel and Hunter transferred from. Anyhow, the neighborhood we live in here in Denver is eclectic, culturally rich, mostly Latino and has a high immigrant population. It's unfortunate that Mitchell will not be available to serve our neighborhood children anymore -- every morning as I drive to work, I see a lot of families walking together to drop their children off at Mitchell. There is a lot of poverty in our neighborhood; conversely, it's become a "trendy" neighborhood, as people are priced out of neighborhoods like Washington Park, Cherry Creek and Congress Park. I.E. it's gentrifying.

I used to have a very caveat emptor attitude about gentrification and felt it was progressive and positive to see neighborhood revitalization. Of course revitalization can be a positive thing, but when it disparately displaces the working class, and families and individuals of color, then, yeah, I have a problem with that. For the first time in the history of our city council district a caucasian won the seat for District 8 Denver City Council. It has always traditionally been seen as an African-American seat and, indeed, the run-off election between Carla Madison (winner) and Sharon Bailey was very close.

I think the closing of all the schools listed above will negatively impact Latinos in particular (judging from demographics). This is such a hard situation -- I am not the one who will be affected negatively by gentrification. I am part of gentrification, even though my motive wasn't particularly malicious: I just wanted an old Victorian house. This neighborhood is where I could afford to buy one. I wish there was a clear path of inclusion in this situation, so that those constrained by poverty and historical white entitlement wouldn't be so negatively impacted.

What is your favorite classic or retro product? It can be any kind of product -- food, cosmetic, clothing. Mine is classic Pond's Cold Cream. It reminds me of sitting and watching my mother get ready for an evening out -- as does the scent of Chanel No. 5 -- and I still use it to this day. The main ingredients are mineral oil and beeswax, which may be suspect to some, but honestly I haven't found a product yet that makes my skin feel as smooth and soft as Pond's, and believe me I've tried inumerous different brands. Pond's is also a great makeup remover for me.

Is anyone else watching Mad Men on AMC? Speaking of retro.

I do like to shop, as you all probably know by now. Yesterday the children and I went to the crack house Target to buy materials for Ariel's project on mythology. Then, we went to Borders and found this great book on Mythology for only $19.99

Okay, I ordered shoes from Zappos. Why? Why do I continue to do this? Perhaps it's the hope that someday -- SOMEDAY! -- I will find a pair of shoes that do not flay my feet open when I wear them, that aren't Crocs. I'm sure weight loss will help. But, anyway, I purchased these ballerina flats:



I have the perfect skirt that has both colors featured in the shoe in the fabric, and I anticipate wearing the skirt with opaque tights and some kind of wrap-around shirt. God help me, but the shoes come in red, too. (I did not order the red ones, although I was tempted!)

I also decided to try getting my groceries by home delivery, which I haven't done since 1999. Previously, the cost of delivery was 10% of the total bill, which could easily be like $25.00. I thought that was excessive, so I just stopped using the service. However, it's become popular, so now the cost of delivery is a $9.95 flat fee. I'm totally down with that. So, my groceries will be delivered tomorrow evening. Another advantage, I've found, is that when you order online, you are faced with the reality of how much stuff you are purchasing. I re-did my shopping list three times before submitting it, and doing so really gave me pause to consider what I truly needed, as opposed to things I was purchasing because they were on sale, thus "a good deal." My bill went down from $460 to $290 -- that's a huge difference. And I realized that I had shopped online in the same way I shop when hungry/tired/in a rush in the actual store itself. Many times I've purchased groceries that ended up going to waste just because something looked, or was, a good deal. It's not a good deal when you end up throwing it away. $290 is still a lot to spend on groceries and sundries (although we're a family of four), but we've run out of, like, everything -- I had to stock up.

. . . but not the kind of village you think. || CUT FOR TALK OF HEMORRHOIDS (no, not mine) || )

Yesterday, I took Ariel for what I thought would be a trim and to get bangs. She decided she wanted her hair short again! So, the pictures I took a week ago? Totally out of date already! I'll have to take new pics. She got a classic bob (like mine, actually) with bangs, and she's thrilled. I've always loved how she looks in a stacked bob, so I was secretly delighted when she asked for short hair. However, in an effort not to be selfish about my daughter's hair, I asked her if she was quite sure and she assured me that she was.

Finally -- finally -- the weather has cooled. This morning when I woke up, there was just enough chill in the air that I needed a light sweater. I was thrilled! I puttered into our tiny quarter bath off the kitchen and was surprised to be blasted by hot air -- the heater had kicked on! I guess back in April I had forgotten to turn the switch to OFF, and that tells me that my house has not been cooler inside than 68 degrees for months. Gads.

This is my favorite time of the year, Autumn. This morning I made a fabulous cake-based peach cobbler with fresh Colorado peaches and cream cheese with yellow chiffon cake batter I made from scratchl. I love the smell of baked goods in the morning, especially on the weekends. Hunter likes to bake with me, so this morning I taught him how to make meringue from two egg whites and half-a-cup of sugar -- he did a fanatastic job! I have over-ripe bananas to make bread with later, plus two fresh pineapples which will probably be my last two of the season. Also, a bag of fresh pecans. I'm not sure what to do with the pecans, as I've never made pecan pie. Maybe I'll carmelize them and make them into candied pecans? I have 2 cups of cut-up rhubarb left over from last week, when I made fresh rhubarb pie, and thought I would make some individual rhubarb tarts.

For you car lovers out there, you have to read the 50 Worst Cars article that Time magazine just put out -- it's effin' hilarious! An excerpt, PWNING the 1971 Chrysler LeBaron Imperial two-door hardtop, circa 1971: The glamorous Imperial marque was, by the late '60s, reduced to a trashy, pseudo-luxury harlot walking the streets for its pimp, the Chrysler Corporation. By 1971, only the Imperial LeBaron was left and it shared the monstrous slab-sided "fuselage" styling of corporate siblings like the Chrysler New Yorker and the Dodge Monaco. Appearing to have been hewn from solid blocks of mediocrity, the Imperial LeBaron two-door is memorable for having some of the longest fenders in history. It was powered by Chrysler's silly-big 440-cu.-in. V8 and measured over 19 ft. long. The interior looked like a third-world casino. Here we are approaching the nadir of American car building — obese, under-engineered, horribly ugly. Or, it would be the nadir, except for the abysmal 1980 Chrysler Imperial, which had an engine cursed by God. The Imperial name was finally overthrown in 1983. TWOP-style writing always lures me in. I enjoyed reading about all 50 cars :D
