1. You know those delicatessens that name sandwiches after famous people? What would be the ingredients of the sandwich named after you? Uhhh..turkey, onions and cheese??
2. What’s your favorite part of staying in a hotel? The novelty of being on vacation, etc
3. What was the last book you read, and how was it? Frozen in Time, about WW2 airplanes that crashed in Greenland. One group survived and were stuck on the ice for like 3 months!! The people trying to rescue them crashed and died, and a guy led a modern expedition to find the plane. It's pretty good!
4. What’s something super-unhealthy you’ve recently eaten? A cupcake
5. What do you do with all those Christmas cards with photos of friends and their kids? I don't really get those, but I would keep them

Today's was work's annual Christmas party..usually we do a White Elephant but this time we did it differently. We sat in chairs across from each other and had to pass the presents in the direction the story Paulette was reading said (like "grandma LEFT the house and went ACROSS the street"). It wasn't really that fun to me, but other people seemed to like it. I definitely prefer White Elephants. We opened the gift we ended up with one by one and got to trade them at the end if you wanted to. I got a really nice green and blue fluffy scarf..the person who brought it told me she made it!! That is SO cool, that makes it extra special :D

oh yeah, and worst journey in the world #4 LOL )

Today was the Christmas party for the Fairbanks geocachers..in a way it was better than last year since I knew most everyone there and I'm more familiar with geocaching. It was hosted by the same lady, who always does such a great job. One of the things we did was to get into groups and make an ugly sweater haha (the sweatshirt and supplies was, well, supplied to us haha). My group voted me to wear the sweater since I was the smallest..that was pretty fun and amusing. :P My group did a good job with mine. We voted for the best one afterwards and mine got second place. After that we ate and did the gift exchange. I got a magnetic cache with numbers on the front and the log in a pocket on the back (the numbers make it look like a part of what you stick it on, like an electrical box. That kind of cache confused me the first time I tried to find one haha). So that was fun..I'm Christmas partied out now though haha

Here's a pic of the ugly sweater models lol. I got second, Laura got third (her stuff kept falling off haha) and Bonnie got first place:

Today was the Literacy Council's annual Christmas party..the gift exchange is always fun haha. Except there were annoying gifts like chocolate covered coffee beans (EW) and stuff like that. The one I chose had coffee and candy and stuff in it too..not impressed. After the party was over a guy was nice enough to trade the books he got with me, and one of my coworkers gave me the "Alaska Mountains" shirt she got (she got PJ pants too, but she wanted to keep those. I really wanted the shirt anyway though). Still fun though :)

Today at work was our Christmas party! Earlier in the day the students who were learning English had their own party..they invited me to have their food and so I did haha. There was a second one with different students and had some of their food too. SO FULL haha. Before our party there were a bunch of people in the store so I was busy..of course when ours started this customer had a HUGE order haha. I only had a little food from our party cause I was already full. :P Then we did our gift exchange..SO FUN haha. Paulette hosts it and she's SO good at it..she's so funny! This was probably the funnest party of theirs I've been to. Before my turn someone opened a present with a cage with cute little walking sticks! When it was my turn I thought about getting it but opened a new one instead..I got a Thai cookbook. Mom stole that from me and I decided to get the bugs. But someone stole it from me and the stealing limit was reached! Aww sad haha. Then next one I opened was a really delicious looking cake! One of the volunteers MADE it..it seriously looked professionally made at a store! I had a piece of another cake she made earlier which tasted yummy so I'm sure it'll be delicious. I'm glad no one stole it from me haha. So fun :D

Today I was at work in the back with the other cleaners and suddenly Paulette comes back and is like "3 minute movie warning!" and we were like..there's a movie? Haha. I asked which movie and she said it was The Gods Must Be Crazy. I was like "OMG I love that movie!!" haha. It felt like movie days at school haha. We watched it till the disk stopped working. :P We also had our Christmas party too. There was food but I wasn't really hungry and most of it looked gross anyway. I don't understand why people don't bring things like rice and beans and bring disgusting things like potato salad. ALWAYS at a gathering there's that stuff. Ugh. We had our fun gift exchange too haha. The first person went and opened the gift she chose and it was an awesome warm blanket! I SO wanted it but it was stolen the maximum amount of times before it was my turn (too bad I was #21 :P). The person sitting next to me told me she was actually the one that made it and she had more made in her shed..she said she'd give me one when she unfreezes her shed door haha. Sweeet. The first give I chose was an ice scraper! Niceee. It definitely is useful..except I don't have a car! Heh. Luckily it was stolen from me and next I got a Christmas tree with a scene on it. THAT was stolen from me too and my last one was a tin filled with chocolates and a couple cookies. Someone gave this toy toilet thing that I think was like a piggy bank which made a flushing sound..that was definitely a hit haha. It was kinda too loud for me though..ah well

The girls at mom's work had a Christmas party yesterday..at first mom said I wasn't invited but then she asked someone and she said I could go so I did. They were all fine with me going..mom's coworkers really like me anyway haha (plus they said as long as I was a girl I could come too :P). We had dinner at Zach's in Sophie Station (a hotel). Someone ordered this type of beer but the they didn't have it so she had the waitress list other types..one of which was Oosik something..so she was like "ok give me the Oosik" and we all started laughing haha (an oosik is a walrus penis :P). Then I asked the waitress about mixed drinks and she mentioned Sex on the Beach and asked if I wanted to try it. I was like "...suree" haha. Then the other lady asked if I like orange juice and peach and I said yes so she said the Fuzzy Navel was good too..so mom got that one. I tried Sex on the Beach and it was ok but the Fuzzy Navel was AWESOME. It was sooo good. It's made with orange juice and peach schnapps. Yumm. I don't like strong alcohol so that was like perfect. I even drank the whole glass! Haven't done that before haha. The innuendos were flying too..like "I had sex on the beach and got a fuzzy navel and had lots of oosiks!" It was soo funny haha. The food was good too. Fun times haha

Yesterday was Becky's party. There was a lot of food haha..I had mac and cheese, chicken, this yummy bean dip thing with sour cream, tomatoes and cheese, pretzels, chips, crackers, a frosted cookie and awesome chocolate cake (two kinds). I really need to eat healthy now haha. Becky's house is really small but has A LOT of history..it was her family's original homestead in the 50s..there used to be a dancefloor there and pony rides and stuff. Her mom and sisters lives next to her too. It was fun talking with my coworkers haha. There was also a bonfire. :D It was too hot to get too close and poke sticks in though. I stayed a few hours then left. I have pics but I don't have the cord with me so I'll post them tomorrow

Today we went strawberry picking at a farm. Some of the berries were huge haha. We're gonna have milkshakes with them soon. :D Then we went to a party..this lady was celebrating the Portuguese day of independence I think. Stephanie met her daughter and became friends. Their yard was really nice..lots of big old nice trees (Wisconsin in general seems to have nice houses and yards). Going to the party really reminded me of when I was a kid. She had Portuguese food..rice with duck meat, these beans, sardines (nastyyyy *gag*), shrimp, etc. They also had a tire swing and I rode on that..I hadn't done that in years! Then later there was a fire and mom was like "Heather there's a fire! People are sticking sticks in it!" I was like "OMG I HAVE to do that!!" I was OBSESSED with doing that as a kid. It was lovely haha. We sat by the fire for hours and talked to people. We talked about living in Alaska to people. It was really nice when it started to get dark and the firelight was shining on people's faces and looking into the fire was nice. It was really, really soothing and just..calm and lovely..even the talking seemed different and calm. And a train came by a couple of times and for some reason that's soothing too. Wow. Eventually we left and now were here. A lovely evening

Yesterday I went to a garage sale (it was actually an estate sale). Mom kept doubting how good it was gonna be..I was like "jeez be positive" haha. And I was right..I found a table and chairs that look awesome in my apartment. I also got some books, a purple shirt and this big white fake cat. It was fun haha

Later there was a birthday/divorce party for Jerri at the Pump House..I got to play pool which was also fun

Today at work was our Christmas party. There was (mostly disgusting looking) food and there was a white elephant gift exchange! I LOVE those haha. The people at my work have the right amount of crazyness for it too. ;) I picked a gift that was a coffee mug and chocolate. Later in someone got a mountains calendar and I was like "OMG I WANT THAT!" I was hoping someone would steal my gift so I could get it haha. No one did but at the end we could try and trade gifts with everyone. I told her I wanted the calendar and she was like "ok!" and gave it to me! That made me so happy haha. Also..I GOT A $100 CHRISTMAS BONUS!! WOOHOO!! :D

Also..when I was coming back from the airport and driving up my street I saw something running down the street and I was like "what is that??" When it got closer I saw it was a fox! Awww

this song has been in my head since i heard it in the seattle airport )

The work Christmas party started at 3 yesterday..the second person to open a gift at the White Elephant got this DVD of different fireplace settings haha..people kept making jokes about it. :P I got a book called The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom (he wrote Tuesdays With Morrie. I haven't read the book but I've seen the movie) with a $5 gift certificate for the store..the next person stole that from me and I got another book with a certificate haha. The person gave the book she stole from me back cause she just wanted the certificate and I wanted that one more (the other one was a Christmas book). Someone else got a showerhead haha

Yesterday mom and I went to an oyster party (basically to get pearls). The person hosting it had a lot of movies and we talked about them haha. They also had 3 dogs and 3 cats! I saw one of the cats and I was like "AWW KITTY!" but I didn't get to pet him/her. The oyster person had us draw a picture with our eyes closed..that was rather fun haha. The osyter person had us pick the oysters we wanted and she opened them for us. My pearl was white, 7 1/2 inches, and worth $50 something dollars. Someone else found like a purpleish pearl. There was this booklet with bracelets, rings, etc that we could buy to put our pearls on/in. I found a kitty with a pearl at its feet like it was batting it and I was like "OMG WANT" haha. The pearl person had to send the pearls out to be put into the jewelry or something. On the way home I saw TWO moose! It could have been a mom and her kid. Mom tried to take a pic but when the camera was ready they were in the woods and they might not have shown well. Hehe yay I saw moose
