Big Fat Slacker

That's me, in case you're wondering.

No, I haven't dropped off the face of the Earth. I've been thinking about you all, but haven't gotten around to writing much lately. I've just been busy.

Just what the heck have I been doing anyway? Well...

There was an iPod with my name on it under the Christmas tree. Do you have any idea how long it takes to load your entire music collection? I was totally obsessed with it for several days, and still haven't gotten through everything. The fact that DSL was down didn't help matters because I had to enter all the information in myself. Also, do you know that Mr. Q has 15 separate Depeche Mode CD's? Fifteen whole CD's dedicated to freaky depressedness. All except for "Just Can't Get Enough" and "Route 66." And do you know that I have 72 songs by the Indigo Girls? And those are just the ones I like...

I've been cooking a lot. Someone posted a Cranberry Orange scone recipe recently, so I had to try it out - and it was super-fantabulous. (I wish I could remember who posted it - if it was you - thank you!) Good enough to give the scone cafe a run for its money. Especially since the rat-fink owner wouldn't give me the recipe. I modified the recipe this morning, substituting a mix of raspberries, blueberries, and marionberries for the cranberries. Yummmmy. EC and I also made cookies after she got back from Nebraska, and for a couple of days I swear I ate nothing but sugar cookies. And coconut macaroons.

I taught myself to crochet. Since my last final I've made 4 scarves, 1 hat, and am about 1/3 of the way through a shawl for my Oma. I've crocheted so much that my left index finger is sore. Like Tennis Elbow, but isolated in one knuckle.

Because I am a total geek and because law school finals get in the way of writing Christmas cards, I put up a family blog in lieu of the standard holiday letter. That way, the people who aren't into holiday letters don't have to read it. We can't compete with our crafty friends who send out beautiful handmade Christmas cards, so we might as well out-nerd them. The Quandaries - walking that fine line between freak and trendsetter.

I've also read a couple of books, taken the kids to the dentist, and watched a bunch of movies and a good chunk of the first season of Alias.

Of course, school starts back up tomorrow, so expect me to be back in full force since I'll once again have plenty to procrastinate from.

that's really funny --- this weekend, i uploaded 15 depeche mode SONGS - not cd's. i put some on iTunes from disks, but then i BOUGHT some. i had to buy blasphemous rumor. HAD TO.
