Finally got around to purchasing the On Demand Nick Reboot channel. Thus far, I am pleased. Only $3.99 per month to watch some of my favorite older shows such as: The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Full House, Home Improvement, Roseanne, Saved By The Bell, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, and Friends. Currently watching season 1 of Friends on the roku. The channel doesn't have every show, but there are many favorites available, and a small collection of movies. :)

Been awhile...

- Thanksgiving was swell. Much Black Friday shopping took place... I have all but one gift I think. Spent a few days with family also.

- Work is about the same. Yesterday, Debby and little Max came in to see us... they made us homemade Christmas cookies to munch on. Max kept trying to get me to eat the cookies he already ate the heads off of. Lol. Kids are cute.

- I need to buy wrapping paper or something. Most of my gifts for the kids and such are at sister's house, so I don't have to lug them back and forth, and we're doing our Christmas(s) there. Maybe I'll remember tonight.

- So... I got a FREE Kindle Paperwhite ($119) yesterday... Showed up on my doorstep. I was like whaaaaaat... No explanation whatsoever as to WHY. A message telling me to enjoy my free gift... from some Adam dude. I was like WTF. I was expecting a small bottle of something I paid $19 for. The package came from the company I ordered the thing from, and addressed to me, so I dont know why they sent it to me... I have not received the item I ordered though... so maybe they were out? And decided to give me something much higher valued instead? Lol. Literally, no explanation included. But it's cool. :)

When a spider is so big that I can see the ceiling light reflecting back at me in it's eyes... that motherfucker has to die.

And yesterday... another wasp stung me... right on the ass.


Where the heck are they all coming from? Geez. It's like as soon as it got warm again, all these little critters have been showing themselves... everywhere I go.

Invasion! :P

Came home tonight... and I'm stripping down within 30 seconds. Took my shoes off and was like "omg, it feels sooo good to take these off..." Another 30 seconds pass, and I stepped on a goddamned red wasp. It stung me. I cursed it out. It died. My foot is puffy. Meh. But I have Chicken Alfredo Lasagna from the golf course. Free food is always nice. The end. :)

So there's this sandwich at the restaurant at the golf course here that I have LOVED for years. Most of their food is great. They give me freebies a lot of the time, haha, but when I actually PAY for something, I tend to order this sandwich. They call it a Turkey Thai Reuben. A home version was created recently. It is damn similar. Their gouda tastes better than what I bought this time, otherwise, it likely would have been identical. Not the classiest recipe, but here ya go! :)



Texas Toast bread slices
Fresh-cooked turkey slices or a 7.5oz pkg of Oscar Mayer 'Carving Board' Turkey (enough for 2 sammies!)
Gouda Cheese
Cabbage shreds
Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
Dijon Mustard



- Blend a handful of cabbage shreds with some Thai Sweet Chili Sauce. The amounts are up to you. But you only need enough for a few sandwiches. Let stand for 2+ hours.
- Heat your griddle.
- Melt some butter on the griddle.
- Lightly grill/toast your Texas Toast bread slices in the butter.
- On other part of griddle, heat the turkey up.
- Melt the gouda cheese atop the turkey.
- You can heat up the cabbage blend for a moment if you desire, but it's not required.
- Assemble your sandwiches as desired. Add a little dijon mustard if desired.
- Enjoy!

For dinner lastnight, it was an Asian-inspired evening. I made fried rice with peas, carrots, broccoli, cabbage, onion, eggs, and so on, and then added some half-cooked ramen and broke that up to bits. Yummy. I also made a few basic egg rolls, that I filled with cabbage, carrots, broccoli, and spices. I have been craving crab rangoon lately but I decided to make something different instead of that... instead of crabmeat, I used jalapenos. SO GOOD! :D




1 8oz. pkg room-temp cream cheese
4 tablespoons sour cream
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1-2 large jalapenos
dash of onion powder
dash of garlic powder
pinch of chipotle powder
pinch of salt


wonton/egg roll wrappers
oil for frying


- Remove seeds from jalapeno(s). Mince.
- Blend all filling ingredients very well.
- Place some filling in center of wrappers. Fold or roll up as desired.
- Heat oil.
- Fry each piece until golden, about 15-20 seconds.
- Drain excess oil from each piece.
- If you want to keep them hot for awhile, place in an oven set to WARM.
- Enjoy.

NOTE: I decided to shape mine into the traditional eggroll style. This recipe made 8 full-size eggrolls.

To those of you on here that may have been friends with Kelly, aka survival, it is unfortunate and heartbreaking to inform you, that she has passed away due to respiratory and cardiac arrest. It really does seem that life is sometimes just so unfair. She truly was an amazing person. She had been through so much physically and emotionally, and was strong for so long. And unfortunately, she has been taken from us way too early. :(
