fondue up the yin yang

halloween slide

what does that mean, anyways? "up the yin yang?" is this a dirty term i speak of? i lack pop culture references and am too tired to look it up.

another phrase i don't get - "to have beef with." as in: "i've got some beef with you."

isn't beef supposed to be good? or maybe "they" mean a beefy fist sandwich. ::kapow in the kisser::

???

kim = confused

kim = tired

kim also = super stuffed w/ cheesy and chocolatey fondue goodness.

anthony, rachel and i went to jacques & lisa's house for fondue night! (do tell me if i spelled that incorrectly, rachel.)

it. was. incredible.

hello fondue! hello cheese! hello bread! hello toblerone fondue!

i like to say hello to my food. it's the polite thing to do, after all. lots of merlot, cabernet/merlot and port! never had port wine before. delish. especially with little nibbles of 54% dark chocolate in between sips. do i sound educated? erudite, even? bwahahaha... FOOLED YOU. ;) i know nothing of wine. except that as a general rule of thumb, i like expensive chianti.

man, i am tired. just spoke to my dad, who reassured me that he was doing well. he was put back in the hospital after being released; he keeps getting these weird stints of high blood pressure and shakiness. they did some glucose tests, trying to figure it out. they're having a meeting on sunday and then deciding what to do on monday. i hate that he's a 24-hour trip away.

and, as you can see, i have finally uploaded a singular slide from the halloween night! most of the slides are still at star's house - i'll try and put one up each post from now on. for "visual interest" and what have you. this one was done by jen.

Fondue! I found this really neat fondue pot at IKEA, and it was WAY awesome!

But then, I remembered how I HATE preparing food. And chopping. And stuff.

Man, am I jealous of your friends. They seem so cool. I am glad your dad is somewhat more stable. I've been thinking about him for the sake of Good Karma. And stuff. (Like God).

Madge said...

Like Fritz, I am happy to hear the news about your dad. But for your sake, I wish that he was closer.

I first had port wine on my birthday - little tiny sips seem to be the best. I do have some left (my sister told me it saves quite a while). I do like dark chocolate. I do like eating and drinking on Sundays, as per every other day.

I love the slide! I can't wait for the Hansel & Gretel-ish release of each of them.

As for the phrases you mentioned: I'm going to be old-fashioned and look them up at work tomorrow in the few phrase origin books we have. :)

Explain to me what you mean by "slide." You know, other than that being a cool picture.

I'm going to a craft open house today, and shall think of you.

Also, if my old co-workers continue their tradition of giving me 75%+ dark chocolate for Christmas, I shall think of you. And when I find out when my grandpa gets out of the hosipital for his recent stroke, I'll think of you.

Man, it's a good thing I don't mind thinking of you.

yakster - oh, do say hello for me, too! mmm... fondue...

fritz - i think stores have the super easy way out now-a-days. make the fondue and then buy pre-chopped veggies. all we did was bread. cheese and bread. and holy crap, it was good. we joked about taking the entire baguette and eating it like a big dip-stick. YUM! *laugh*

madge - i was surprised at how sweet port wine was! hence the desire for dark chocolate to add a really nice cocoa bittery flavor. also, it almost cleanses the palatte.

sleep goblin - by "slide" i mean, slide photograph. on halloween we took old slides some guy had left to his significant other and reworked them to create new art. we're recyclists like that. i love making up my own words. and isn't it weird lovely when you start thinking of blog people you haven't even met?

I never got having a beef with someone. It sounds like a sexual thing to me.

Same goes for yin yang, but I think that one is SUPPOSED to sound dirty.

Now I am off to do some research, and have some fondue.

Virginia said...

Yay - you put up a slide - and it just so happens to be one of my favorites!

I'd offer to look up the phrases, but looks like other people already have that covered, and I have quiz answers to research in the meantime.

Only downside to fondue is going to Melting Pot and leaving stinking of [sesame?] oil... but as I remember it's worth it!

Hopefully your dad's blood pressure will stabilise and he'll be stateside soon! I'll keep him (and you) in my thoughts.

Miss you muchly,
V

PS Have you given any thought to coming up Dec 10? And Erika is welcome to join in the festivities, but I don't know how to reach her...

Supermans Foot said...

I am gonna say hello to my food too. Hello burger and fries, please dont kill me.

kimberlina said...

bobby - one can never ingest too much fondue. never. well.... on second thought, i think i did that night, so maybe i'm lying. ;)

virginia - i know, i love this slide too. we had so many good ones! and i agree about smelling like oil when you leave the melting pot. those wacky romulators!

footsie - they won't kill you if you don't eat too many!
