Partying it up

Spent the better part of the month partying when I wasn't working.

Well, when I was working I was dealing with a bunch of crazy stuff. I had the Dept. of Corrections test this past weekend to be a corrections officer.

Also signed up to teach in the prisons.

And applying at local colleges.

My cousin's wedding shower was last weekend too. It was great seeing all the family. Great food, and some bonding time with my cousins who live nearby. Mike and I are making plans to get together with them.

The weekend before we did a massive housecleaning for all my teacher friends to come over. It was only going to be just English teachers, but ended up inviting a few others. Wish I had invited M and B. Next time. We had such a blast. Started off the night with a cheese plate, jalapeƱo poppers, then had chili, bread, and all sorts of cookies for desserts. Wine and cheese was wonderful. Had such a blast.

Going to a drag Christmas party at The Guy's tomorrow. Trying to plan a weekend trip with him and Rob.

Going to the work Christmas party too tomorrow.

We went to happy hour yesterday after work to celebrate the kids being gone - today was a teacher work day. OMG. So fun. M and I sang Christmas carols. My sissy was there too- first happy hour she went to this year. We celebrated our favorite lesbian getting engaged. Everyone thinks it is beyond time for Mike and I to tie the knot, and they all want to have a party for us.

We had our first pep rally at school this past week. Was soooo fun. I was in 2 scenes - teachers performed to Beyonce's Single Ladies and Can't Touch This with B. B is my favorite guy. He seriously is so fun. He's a former police guy, great rapport with the kids, big supporter of me and my sexuality (his dad is gay).

That's what's going on in my world. What's going on in yours?

Decided to do a cooking survey...

1. How good of a cook are you?

I'm a good cook. My food turns out edible. I have realized after watching all of these "Top Chef" shows, and my BF, that my cooking needs to be more adventurous, and I should not be scared to try new things.

2. Who taught you how to cook? 

My mother, when I was 4 years old.

3. Who does the cooking in your home?

My BF usually most nights because he thinks his cooking is superior to mine... he thinks everything he does is superior to me.

4. Do you cook more or eat out more?

We only eat out 2 or so nights a week, sometimes more if it is just one of those days we need to get out. 

5. Are you more of a cook or dessert maker?

Cook... I can do a nice fudge and brownie, though. 

6. What was your worst/funniest cooking moment? 

When my BF gave me non gluten shit to cook and make some cake, and didn't have half the ingredients, then wonders why it doesn't turn out. 

Funniest would be when I was about 5 making breakfast for my parents.

7. What's your best dish?

My grandma's pork chops, my pork chop, anything with chicken... hmmm. Oh, I have a great enchilada recipe. I like to cook Mexican food.

8. Is revenge a dish best served cold? 

Yes... sometimes it just makes you feel better. 

9. Is the best way to a man's heart truly through his stomach?  

Yep... just look at my waist. 

Have you made whoopee in the kitchen? Which foods have you used to spice up your love life?

Nope... and there aren't any foods to spice up my love life.
