me, lying on the bed, half-asleep: babe, i don’t think i can have sex tonight.

him: not even if i turn on that movie you like?

me: okay fine. let’s go.

you are now left wondering two things…a) what movie was it? School of Cock? Shaving Ryan’s Privates? Gangbangs of New York? Pulp Friction? Breast Side Story? (i could go all day with these names, fyi) and b) wow…that Ali is an easy sell.

answer to a)

no, i’m not kidding. and no, horror movies don’t usually do it for me. scratch that. horror movies don’t EVER do it for me.

although, this is not that shabby to look at:

answer to b) yes, Ali is usually an easy sell. but in truth, Ali was three sheets to the wind. and just didn’t want to watch any more food network.

seriously…all we watch nowadays is the food network. and just remember this is Food Network Canada…which is like Clark Griswold’s cousin Eddie. it means well, but it’s just a little, well, off.

sure, there are a few shows i enjoy. Restaurant Makeover, Unwrapped, Ace of Cakes. but i swear, if i have to watch Rob Rainford make any more crap on his show Licence to Grill, i’m gonna throw down. and it’s not going to be pretty.

there is a machine i need for my blanket business. to do the edging around the fleece. usually, i do it by hand…but it takes me a little less than 90 minutes. with a machine, it would take a little less than 90 seconds. I could get my business up online and could handle more orders.

i finally found the machine i need:

guess how much it costs….just give a guess…

  1. Mmmmm Ryan is so yum!

    I don’t usually like horror movies and that one got bad ratings, but I actually really liked it.

    And I LOVE Christmas Vacation! LOVE it!

    The sewing machine… my guess? 5,000.

  2. Every Sunday (and I mean EVERY) John watches this very lame hunting show on Global where some fat hunter cooks in the rough and it’s always some freshly shot animal and beer. Always. I don’t know what about it turns him on, but he turns to me and says “Wanna get it on?”.

    Who’s the loser? Him for saying it or me for falling for it?

  4. I’m totally going to stop at Blockbuster and rent that movie. Then I’m going to fast forward til I find that scene and just hit pause.

  5. I gotta say 3K US….I know when I was in my obsessive apron & chef’s hat sewing phase I thought it would be cute to embroider the name or a cute phrase on the apron and looked into that oh-too-cool machine. Whatever it was…3K, 2K or whatever…was WAY too much for my silly non-money-generating obsession. If if will help your business, remember that you can deduct it as a business expense and for most of us moms with businesses, the main purpose of our business is not to MAKE money but to pay less in taxes. Not sure this applies in Canada.

  6. Let’s just say… someone you knew had an “in” with a certain sewing machine nerd in her neck of the woods (aka; family)? How would that make you feel? A little giddy maybe?

  7. there is no comparison to the real food network. but you know what else ticks me off (i can’t stand robert rainford either)? 1) why keep showing opening soon episodes that are at least two years old? 2) you watch someone cook something that is totally yummy. you look it up on the food network website. but you can’t get it. because the episode that was on food network canada was not on the real food network. and of course, it was exclusive.

    by the way. throwdown is hilarious. just watch bobby flay try and make a wedding cake!

  8. 20 cents. I bet it costs 20 cents. I’ll buy it for you? It’s the least I could do to help you make your fabo blankets.
    I can’t believe the hubby let you talk about the sex! ;) And, I can’t believe you watched that movie.

  9. And, why were you three sheets to the wind? Special occasion? Funny choice of phrase! Hee!

  10. RARRR!!! Ryan is yummy.

    I just had a little “Ode to Canada” on my blog, so ya know, eh? I used to live like three hours (?) from the border (which I think is pretty close, if you ask me) so people pretty much think I used to be Canadian. Either that or they don’t know the difference between Canada and Wisconsin, but whatever. Most of my friends are of self-proclaimed subpar intelligence. It says you were a cheesehead on here – were you from Wisc too?

    I’d guess… $895. If I get it right, do I get a free blanket??? Pretty please?
