If ever I have had a guilty pleasure, (ouside of Belgian chocolates and flea market finds, that is,) the television show 24 would have to be it.

I know, I know there is too much violence, and the action is dissected into one hour segments which can make the suspense excruciating. But the action is.... WOW! What a roller coaster ride! It is nice to see the good guy kick butt and take names once in a while. The bad guys are so horrifying that I tend to forgive Jack Bauer for his rather strong harm techniques. What's a little torture when a deadly virus is about to be launched onto Los Angeles, right?

Kiefer with his sweet, geeky Sutherlands looks doesn't look like he's built to take all that much punishment, but he is like I don't know , the energizer rabbit of secret agents, he keeps going and going. Maybe that's his secret weapon : I'd be cranky too if I had to stay up for 24 hours

I must have been Nice (rather than Naughty)

Okay so I haven't blogged during this Christmas season. It was busy and stressful, and I found myself with the choice of DOING Christmas stuff or talking about it, and I chose the former.

Chrismas cookies, I made a lot and I have modified my color scheme a little, from red and green to pink, pale green and white with a lot of sparkle (which doesn't show in the picture) My hubby finds the colors "girly" but so what, I am a girl, I make the cookies, I am entitled.

Santa has been good to me this Chrismas (bless his tinselly, fur trimmed heart.) I received a Canon "Rebel" XSI, This puppy rocks, and I am hoping to learn how to use it any day Now.

I am still learning how to use this blog thing so don't be surprised if the format changes at a moment notice. I am a sampler through and through and I like to try everything, so I hope that the aspect of my blog doesn't suffer too much of my dilettantism.
