The Office Quotes/Update

So, I loved The Office last week, as usual. There were so many funny quotes that this might be a little long. Oh well, there could be worse things.

Angela: Meredith! If you don’t come to my party you will be very, very sorry.
Meredith: Is that a threat?
Angela: No. It’s an invitation.

Ryan: I miss the days when there was only one party I didn’t want to go to.

Michael: Bro’s before ho’s. Why? Because your bro’s are always there for you. They’ve got your back after your ho rips your heart out for no good reason. And you were nothing but great to your ho. And you told her that she was the only ho for you and that she was better than all the other ho’s in the world. And then…and then suddenly she’s not your ho no mo’.

Dwight: Pam and Karen! I am ordering you to cease and desist all party planning immediately.
Pam: You can’t do that.
Dwight: As ranking number 3 in this office I am ordering you to…
Andy: Ummm, I’m number 3.
Dwight: You’re number 4.
Andy: Yeah, but I’m number 3.
Dwight: Uh no. You must turn over to me all Christmas decorations and party paraphernalia immediately that will be returned to you on January 4th.
Jim: Ok, I think I can help here.
Dwight: Ok good, they…
Jim: As ranking number 2 I am starting a committee to determine the validity of the two committees and I am the sole member of the committee. We’ll act on this now.
Dwight: Ok this is stupid.
Jim: Can you please keep it down? I’m in session. [long pause] I’ve determined this committee is valid.
Dwight: No, no, no. Wait. Permission to join the Validity Committee.
Jim: [thinks about it] Permission denied.

Michael: I’d like everybody’s attention. Christmas is cancelled.
Stanley: You can’t cancel a holiday.
Michael: Give it up Stanley and you’ll lose New Year’s
Stanley: What’s that mean?
Michael: Jim, take New Year’s away from Stanley!

Dwight: He was already dead and we Schrutes use every part of the goose. The meat has a delicious, smokey, rich flavor. Plus you can use the molten goose grease and save it in the refrigerator thus saving you a trip to the store for an expensive can of goose grease.
Jim: Wow. Win-win.

Dwight: [looking at his dead goose] I accidentally ran over it, it’s a Christmas miracle!

I know I say it everytime, but wow, what a great show! Just reading these makes me laugh all over again!

Anyhoo, not a whole lot going on with me. Just getting SOOOOO excited for Christmas. I don't know if I'm abnormal, but Christmas just makes me feel like a kid again. I love that feeling. Normally, I'm stressed with all of the realities of life, and this time of year, I just let all of that go...which is sometimes not a good thing. We had our work Christmas party on Friday, and we had dinner at the Calgary Tower. That's the place Michael and I got engaged, so it holds special meaning for us. Such yummy food too. I think that's really all I did this past Heather and Gannon and the kiddies got here early early on Saturday morning. It's so fun to see them and the kids. They sure change when you dont' see them for a few months. I hate it. The same thing goes for Amy and Brad's kids. You just miss so much.

Saturday morning we had "Family home morning" with the Melchin clan. We had the breakfast we would have had on Christmas morning since it's the inlaw Christmas this year. So yummy. We also had a great lesson on reading the scriptures and SEan challenged us all to read the Book of Mormon as a family. I'm up for the challenge!Saturday night Kevin and Cyndi had their annual Christmas Open House. It was so fun, and of course we ate way too much. But it's so worth it. It's only once a year. It's always nice to see people you don't get to see all of the time too. Sunday we had our ward Christmas program. Michael and I sang in the choir. It's hard to go from singing in the Messiah with over 200 people to a choir of about 25. We seemed so quiet, but I think we did an ok job. I have to work tomorrow so that I get Friday off. That's hard when you're used to having Monday off, but I'll be happy when Friday rolls around. So those few things were pretty much the kickoff to Christmas! This week is full of fun things and then this weekend...ooohhh...I'm so excited. The only thing I'm upset about is that I haven't been taking pictures. I'll get on that!

Christmas Recipe

I got this recipe from a girl at work. Be sure to read the entire thing. I think it's a pretty good one.

Yummy Christmas Cookie Recipe

Christmas Cookie Recipe
1 cup of water
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup of brown sugar
lemon juice
4 large eggs
1 cup nuts
2 cups of dried fruit
1 bottle Crown Royal/Whiskey/Rum

Sample the Liquor to check quality. Take a large bowl, check the Liquor
again, to be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level cup and
drink. Turn on the electric mixer...Beat one cup of butter in a large
fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon of sugar...Beat again. At this point it's
best to make sure the Liquor is still OK, try another cup.. just in case.
Turn off the mixer thingy. Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in
the cup of dried fruit. Pick the frigging fruit off floor...Mix on the
turner. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers just pry it loose
with adewscriver. Sample the Liquor to check for tonsisticity. Next, sift
two cups of salt, or something.... who giveshza sheet. Check the Liquor.
Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon
of ar, or somefink....whatever you can find. Greash the oven. Turn the cake
tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. Don't forget to beat off the
turner. Finally, throw the bowl through the window. Finish the bottle of
Liquor. Make sure to put the stove in the dishwasher.

Banff Springs 2006 or (BS06)

Well I know it's taken me longer to get these up than it should have. I went to do it on Tuesday, and Michael had "fixed" the computer again, and the internet didn't work. Ahh...lovely. Well it was a blast. We had the best time in Banff. It was beautiful.

We got there on Friday and got to the room and just chatted until we had to go to dinner. The food was amazing. Between us we got Beef Tenderloin, Pork Chops, Trout, and Chicken Alfredo. Yum. The highlight though was the dessert buffet. It was so good. I of course ate way too much, but all of the walking we did around the hotel took care of it I'm sure (right). We toured all over the hotel, and it was so beautiful. We looked in every room we could. We then went back to the room for some See's candies, and more talking. We wanted to get a movie, but none of us would have made it through.

We woke up the next day and were going to get breakfast brought to the room, but we decided to go the buffet instead. While getting ready we blew a fuse and had no power for a while. That's nice when 5 women are trying to get ready. So, we missed the buffet, and we just ordered breakfast instead. It again, was super tasty. We walked around a little more and then checked out and headed into the town for some shopping. We looked in the little gift shops, the gem store, the Christmas Store, and the Fudgery of course. We then stopped for Starbucks before heading home. It was so much fun. Here are the pictures, and most of them have captions for some more details.

Ok, so here are a couple of goodies from last night. Jeffrey and Emily came over to watch with us, which is always fun, and we had some good laughs that's for sure!

Michael: Close your eyes. Picture a convict. What’s he wearing? Nothing special. Baseball cap on backward, baggy pants. He says something ordinary like, “Yo, that’s shizzle”. Now slowly open your eyes again. Who are you picturing? A black man? Wrong. That was a white woman. Surprised? Well shame on you.

Michael: Why did the convict have to be a black guy? It is such a stereotype. I just wish that Josh had made a more progressive choice…like a white guy...who went to prison for polluting a black guy’s lake.

Michael: [picks up a dumbbell] Why don’t we pump some iron. Anybody wanna pump up?
Jim: What is that, like, 5 pounds?
Michael: It’s two and a half. I’m not going for bulk, I’m going for tone.

Dwight wasn't around a lot, and Michael stole this show! Ahhh, so nice to have a new one istead of a rerun! Well I'm off to Banff....I'll be sure to document the trip so my blog can be filled with pictures!! Don't you worry!
