Merry Mishugina Holiday Madness

What's that you say?  Holidays?  Christmas?  Hanukah? Faugh.

All I know is, it seems to be the end of  December and I will be damned if I know what happened to most of 2011, and I am invited to a Neighborhood Brunch tomorrow and I just made a batch of my trusty Brownies and, for some mysterious reason,  they failed miserably......didn't rise a smidgeon....only fit for the garbage.......OMG, OMG...... ..so I am falling back on a batch of Hummous and am hoping it will be edible....gasp.  Now I only have to toast up some of my  seasoned Pitas chips and I will be ready, almost.  I hope I will be able to force myself into garments of some acceptable type so I can attend......thank heaven it is being held in the daytime before my bedtime at 5 pm, and am muttering words of gratitude because it is only across the street so I can walk and do not have to endanger the Western World (and my own precious bod) with my driving..............if you think I sound a bit hysterical, well.....you would be right.........anything which involves my being surrounded by more than 3 people and further involves my donning clothing and leaving my front door causes an instant attack of hysteria these days.  Any one of those things is quite enough to cause an attack.   Sigh.  Being a hermit does have a few disadvantages......

Before I become comatose with anxiety, I just want to wish all of you darlings a happy holiday season and reiterate my favorite words of caution:

                                              DON'T FALL DOWN!"

And I will try to do the same.

Bless you all

  2. All the best, Lo! Sweats are acceptable if properly accessorized, don't you agree? Earrings and slippers, maybe?

  3. Shoot, Lo, falling down is all part of the fun. You're doing better than I would. As a fellow hermit, I can come up with some of the most original excuses to stay in my comfortable home.

    I will travel to the southland next week to help my daughter celebrate a belated Christmas. Unfortunately, she must work tomorrow. Even further misfortune is the fact that I will have to leave my comfortable home and drive to the land of Disney.

    Have a wonderful time at your party.

  5. Hi Lo

    Don't worry about the cooking mishaps, I have them all the time now, used to cook up huge batches of cakes with no problem but I seem to have lost my touch.
    As for clothing, as soon as I get in its off with everything and into a kaftan, no restricting underwear, Ahhhhhhhhhhh.
    We're still here and posting so there's still life in us, right?

  12. Weird. I wrote a story once about an old woman whose lifetime advice to all was "don't fall down." And my novel is about a woman who doesn't fall down. I don't think I got any of this from you, so we'll just put it down to the Great Minds thing, okay?

  13. Your anxieties sound entirely suited to the season, Lo. I hope you managed to enjoy your Christmas and look forward to more of your blogs next year.

  14. Just as well you were not here for soggy shepherd's pie here last night...and even better that nobody fell in it.

  15. Could be worse. At least nobody asked you to go bowling.

    If you watch, you'll notice that at this age you can be forgiven practically anything, including "I forgot my dish!" and bunny slippers at the neighborhood bash. So cute!
