Not the bullshit kind of "It's not you. It's me" explanation.


Yes, a new post!!

Okay. Not the most brilliant intro. Forgive me. You've GOT to forgive me. It's (almost) Christmas after all. And I haven't caught up on my sleeping.

So this is just gonna be quick.

I know I have been MIA on this blog AND on your blogs this past month. December has always been too crazy for me. We (I mean, my coworkers and I) have been busy at work as we have been having the super famous MANDATORY OVERTIME that no one can escape from but I can't really complain because all of us are suffering from it and not just me and I totally understand why we have to finish all the medical reports before Christmas so how can I complain?

So that has been Monday night to Saturday morning (or midday-ish) for me.

Then on weekends, I rush to the bead store after work and buy the stuff that I need and go home and try to finish all the accessories that my friends ordered, which they need before Christmas because they are going to use the bracelets and/or necklaces as gifts to kids so I totally have to finish them. BEFORE. CHRISTMAS. Because the little girls are expecting them.

And I don't want to disappoint children.

So I still try to continue doing this after work.

Too much pressure.

Not that I'm complaining. I kinda need the extra income.

One of the bracelets I made for my coworker's 3-year-old niece.
Long story short, I barely have time to go online when I get home from work or on weekends. Actually, I don't. At all. I barely even have time to get a decent sleep. Especially on weekends.

Oh! And I haven't done my holiday shopping yet. So I'm gonna have a lot of people mad at me this year. No gifts.


I'll find a way.

So, that's all. I just thought I'd let you know that I'm not dead.

And as I said, it's not you. It's me. I still love you all. AND your blogs. AND I'm so trying to catch up.

And I'm still slightly active on Twitter.

On a brighter note, I got the package from Israel!! So remember when I announced that I won Israel's caption contest? I got the prize!! Someone protested but I'm good at ignoring people I don't know. *wink*

Here are the pictures:

Thanks again, Israel.

So, that's it. When I come back in January, I will tell you the whole story about the girl who stole my cake and her ridiculous side of the story (oh, you're not gonna believe this!) and a lot of other stuff that *I* think are funny.

Oh! Before I forget, I'd like to remind you that we are having a Martini and Mud Pack Online Blogger Social so if you have your pictures ready, you can email them to me. You all know my email address. If you don't, let me know in the comments section.

Also, I know you've all been busy. It's Christmas.


P.S. I'd like to apologize in advance if you see some typo and/or incoherent sentences in this post. My brain is starting to shut down.


  1. LOL I'm glad you got the "prize" it did take forever but that was the fault of the post office. Thanx for being a regular on my blog. O too have been absent somewhat this month. As always, I look forward to your postings. Have a great day!

  4. Boink! Boink! I want that bunny bracelet :-D

  5. Calm down woman!
    You stressed me!
    And I don't get stressed easily (muahahhahaha).
    No, seriously, chiiiil!
    We'll all be here and we heart you and believe in ya (you can do it Gnetchy!)and all.
    Merry merry Christmas, and you have the most amazing holidays ever!

  6. You're alive!! Haha I was hoping that was the case. I always wondered what would happen if I actually got into some horrible accident and I was offline for a really long time. Would people wonder what happened?

    I am literally adding "mud mask and martini pic" to my Google calendar this second!!

  7. Looking forward to read about the Cake robbery. Take your time, girl. Most blogs won't update so much anyway. Happy holidays and big hugs to the Phillies :)

  8. January?! I miss you already.

  9. I loooove you bitch!!!!

  10. I would punch a baby in the face. Probably.

    No, I really wouldn't. I'm not *that* mean.

    Happy holidays, Gnetchy. Don't stress too much. Just breathe.

  11. I hope you had a great Christmas.
    I wish you a great New Year Gnetch.

  12. Ugh, I'm in the same blog-neglecting boat as you. At least you have a totally adorable bracelet to show for it.

  13. You know I'm on that boat too right? except?mine's a ship..a cruiser :P

    The bracelet?I LOVE! makemeone?makemeone? haha

  14. Dont worry I think we all have been a little MIA on our blogs. With the holidays its tough, everyone is busy with work and shopping that we barely have time for ourselves. Holidays can be so stressful sometimes. I hope you had time finally to do your Christmas shopping and you didnt have people mad at you. Happy holidays!!

  15. Actually, I've thought about this more and I don't believe you. I think it's totally me...

    It is, isn't it?

  16. Hopefully you made it through the holiday without a major mental breakdown. It definitely sounds like you had a lot on your plate. Happy New Year. I look forward to reading more in 2011 :)
