Super Bowl 51: It looked like that the Atlanta Falcons were going to upset the New England Patriots. Somehow, they blew the 21-3 lead that they had at halftime...there was a tie and the first ever overtime in Super Bowl...and the Patriots won. UGH. 

At least Lady Gaga's halftime show was good.

Christmas Eve was definitely my last at my soon to be former church. It was not a good service, despite good music from the choir. I HATE the way our new pastors do things. The scriptures were from a "modern" type Bible, communion was rushed and confused, and the sermon was trite and meaningless. I got a much better experience at St. Paul's Christmas Day service this morning.

We had a lovely Christmas Eve luncheon in Richmond- Mom, Dad, me, Katie, Sam, and Sam's girlfriend, Janice. It was an excellent seafood place called Boathouse. Great food and a nice if foggy view of downtown Richmond.

Great company, too. Janice is nice, and was a big help to Sam during Paul's last week. I think she's a keeper. ;) Sam has dyed his hair very very blond...

We had presents and dessert at Sam's, and the rest of the presents opened either at Mom and Dad's or Katie's.

Sam's tree.

Christmas cake- it was a "cannoli" cake: white cake, cannoli-like filling, ganache frosting, candied orange garnish. It was wonderful.

Truman the cat was very interested in the cake crumbs.

Great presents this year- cute pajamas, Michaels gift card, a gorgeous cat art print, chocolate, and the Star Trek Beyond Blu-ray from Katie and Sam; two beautiful dresses, a bottle of Dolce perfume, a cookie baking book, a Paris-themed comforter set, and American Girl Rebecca, with her Hanukkah dress and accessories!

Rory got new toys.

Beautiful roses given to the choir members by our director:

Christmas dinner was just me, Katie, Mom, and Dad. We had a nice, simple but elegant dinner. Unfortunately Katie and I are both sick. It was also kind of weird. It's our first Christmas without Paul, and we got through it.

I'm spending the last of Christmas Day watching the Broncos get their asses kicked by the Chiefs. :( What happened to the Super Bowl 50 champs?

Also, I'm listening to various Wham! and George Michael songs. I can't believe he died today.

Colorado State lost the Great Idaho Potato Bowl (lol!) to Idaho. They were MASHED. :p Actually, the final score was 61-50. Both teams had sleepy defensive lines! I kept coming up with potato puns while the scores updated (couldn't watch the game)- mashed; shredded and fried and turned into latkes; scalloped; and "death by tater tots".

I'm just glad they went to a bowl.

Super Bowl 50 is done- Broncos beat the Panthers 24-10!

Funniest Tweet about the game:

I'm a very happy Broncos fan tonight!

Broncos beat the Patriots, 20-18! They're going to the Super Bowl!

mollybarton: (sick black knight)

AFC Championship game is on right now. So far it's the Broncos 7, Patriots 6. GO BRONCOS. I'd love to see them in Superbowl 50! Yeah, they'll lose to the Carolina Panthers, but I can live with that.
mollybarton: (knight lights)
...for the Redskins. They got their asses kicked by the Cowboys today, in their final game of the season. 4-11. What a joke. They just can't get their crap together.

Broncos, on the other hand, are headed to the playoffs. Yay.

CSU lost their bowl game. They were trounced by Utah. I knew that would happen. But hey, bowl game! And a 10-3 record for the year! Bad news is, their coach took another job. Grrrrrr. Hope his replacement is even better.

I made this bourbon and brown sugar cake for Mom's annual library ladies lunch:

It was so good! It's from Southern Living, of course. I'm doing a chocolate Bourbon Ball cake for Christmas Day.

I usually forget to dress my American Girls for the holidays, but I remembered to this year!

Dad has the flu. Katie's also sick. Merry Christmas. :p

CSU is playing Utah in the Las Vegas Bowl tomorrow! I hope they win. What a great season the Rams had!

Colorado State lost to Air Force Friday, ending their longest ever winning streak (9 games). Still bowl eligible, but out of contention for the Mountain West title. 10-2 is a damn good record to finish the season with, though!

Getting ready for Christmas- my first Christmas related Adventures of Clintasha/Shelf Avengers item. Fury directs the Shelf Avenger Handbell Choir- Black Widow, Hawkeye, Black Knight, Captain Britain, and Captain America.

I used those five because they were the only ones that could grip the little bells. :p

Did a lot of shopping today. Mom got me a great set of Deborah Lippmann nail polishes. I did her nails in red glitter, then did my own in a glittery cranberry. So much fun.

Feeling a little homesick for Colorado and especially Colorado State this week, even though I left 20 years ago. Saw this beautiful shot of Hughes Stadium, the "A", and the reservoir on Facebook:


And some humor- a Cam the Ram balloon (obviously fake! Yay, Photoshop!):


I mainly posted this one because it's a shot of The Oval, with the music building almost in front! CSU's campus is so beautiful. One of the things I loved about my school.

Also, the football team is now number 21 in the AP poll. Go Rams!

I don't remember CSU ever having a record this good. They've been ranked before (highest ever was at #11 back in 1991, after winning a bowl game), but not with a 9-1 record!

Colorado State squeaked by Utah State for their Homecoming Game yesterday. They're 6-1, and bowl-eligible! Awesome.

Redskins managed a win today. 2-4 record now. Oh, well. At least they aren't the Oakland Raiders. 0-6. OUCH.

Broncos- Peyton Manning just passed Brett Farve's record of career touchdown passes. Also, they showed no mercy towards the 49ers tonight. 42-17, final score!

I was actually wearing orange today. Total coincidence. October/Halloween is a great time to be a Broncos fan- you can show your colors and just say it's for Halloween! :p

Think I'll get this ornament for my Christmas tree this year:
Nothing better than to end the weekend by watching the Broncos kick ass. :)

Total annihilation. They lost to the Seahawks 43-8. The only good thing was that it wasn't a shutout. This wasn't a Super Bowl, it was a massacre. Where did the team go? I've never seen them choke so hard.

The Broncos are going to the Super Bowl! They'll face the Seattle Seahawks. It's going to be an awesome game!

Edit: I went to the movies this weekend- Gravity and Twelve Years a Slave. Both were incredible, both well deserving of the Best Picture Oscar nominations they received. Twelve deserves to win.

Colorado State won the New Mexico Bowl! They came close to losing with a two-touchdown deficit with five minutes to play, but they fought on. They won with an almost last second field goal. It was an awesome last play.
mollybarton: (CAM)
Colorado State is going to a bowl game! Yeah, it's the New Mexico Bowl which nobody cares about, but I'm happy. A bowl game on a 7-6 record. I guess they took the fact that their schedule was pretty rough- making them play Alabama was awful!

Broncos win again! They're 11-2. Redskins continue to suck hard. They lost AGAIN. Time to fire some people.

The weather is getting nasty. It was hard getting to church, and there were only 50 people at 11:00 service. A fifth of them were choir members! Bell practice was cancelled today because of icing worries, which kind of sucks. The choir Carol Service is next week, and we haven't practiced in two weeks. Regular choir will be fine.

Had lunch downtown and took a bunch of photos of the store displays. There are some nice ones. I'll post the pictures later.
mollybarton: (CAM)
Seriously. Four weeks before Christmas and I can't get moving. I'm feeling a bit lethargic. Maybe I'm still recovering from Thanksgiving! I have to get a new tree for my doll tree...I hope I can find a white one. I did manage to get out the Christmas dishes today. I'll unpack ornaments, stockings, greenery, toys, and linens tomorrow.

I actually sang in choir today, but my voice gave out. Two weeks until the Carol Service. I hope my voice will return.

Redskins suck. They lost again tonight. Broncos won, though! And Colorado State ended their season with a win- so they are 7-6 for the year. Not bad at all, considering they had to face Alabama!
mollybarton: (inkvoices hawkeye)
And they lost. Ugh. That should not have happened!

Colorado State lost to Utah State yesterday, too. Bad weekend for football fans in Colorado! :(

Two things I have learned tonight: The Denver Broncos are capable of blowing a 24-0 lead (and I have no hopes they’ll score again and win), and Jeremy Renner cannot pronounce the word “debuted”. Time for bed, I think.

Seriously, Renner? You're presenting a musical act at an awards show, you're an entertainer yourself, and you can't pronounce debuted? "Debooed", really? I think he may have been a wee bit drunk again.

And Broncos, JFC. What happened? Suddenly the Patriots are ahead 31-24. You guys got cocky tonight.

Holy shit. Colorado State smoked New Mexico tonight. 66-42. That's FOOTBALL. I think both teams need to work on their defense.

They're 6-5. Not too shabby, considering how badly they've done in recent years. Still have to face Utah State and Air Force Academy. Air Force sucks donkey balls this year- they're 2-8. Ouch. I think the Rams can handle them! Utah State's record is about the same as CSU's.
