December 12, 2012


I'm so moved that Justin is working on painting the studio doors for me! Every day this week, he's come home from work and done some painting. They're taking a lot of work! It's all a part of the great studio refresh and I'm so thankful. And hey, did you know it's 12/12/12 today? That must be super auspicious! Fruition and completion. I hope it's a good sign for us all.


I finally made it through Black Christmas (original, not the remake) and wow, I can now see why it was rated the way it was and has the following that it does. Very groundbreaking I'm sure and a fascinating story, and so many familiar faces too. Although I doubt I'll add it to my regular Christmas roster, it's certainly worth of the October roster!



While we were chatting for stART yesterday I had this corned beef cooking in the slow cooker. I was very excited about it but then Reg told me he doesn't like corned beef and I guess I didn't rinse it enough because it was salty and it looks like I over-cooked it because it was kind of falling apart. Mom said I could turn it into a knish which is what I am going to do tonight, my own panko-crumb-covered version that is not deep fried.

Justin is doing a great job! And yet, an auspicious day numerologically speaking for sure. I do hope it means a new positive cycle for all of us.

You did it Shannon! And yes, not really a Christmas movie at all (doesn't fit into either your categories that you discussed yesterday really) but perfect for October/Halloween. I found it very scary and disturbing for the most part and absolutely iconic.

Sorry I am a bit late! Trying to finish stART (LOL, that's kind of funny).

Look at those pretty white shutter doors! That's amazing Jamie, you must be so happy! And it's so amazing to see the studio continue to refresh, what a lovely time :)

You know what Suzie? I don't think I've ever had corned beef. It's one of those foods (like brussel sprouts) that people have such a STRONG opinion on, that I never even bothered to try it! Did you like it? I hope it makes a good alt-na-knish!

And I'm so happy I finally got to see Black Christmas, as disturbing as it was, and yes - so iconic!

I know, the transformation has started and is so exciting!

Really Shannon? It reminds me a lot of pastrami actually. I liked it but it was too salty because apparently you need to soak it overnight which the package didn't say, and the recipe I used didn't say.
