How the Diamond family does Christmas...

This is part 1 of 2.
(Plus you'll get a bonus blog!)

The Diamond family Xmas tradish is:

We do Christmas Eve with one half of the fam.
This being Mum's side.
It used to be at Gramma's house.
Now we rotate who's house since Grampa is gone...

(& since both Grandfathers have passed away,
Daddy's mum comes to Xmas Eve too)

Then GrandmaGrandma stays the night
and in the morning the 5 of us
(mum, daddy, bro, gmagma & me)
do stockings,
then breakfast,
then the rest of our presents... 

& then we watch 3 of all the DVDs that we asked for.


This year I have to work at 5 back up in my uni town
so I have to leave between 12-1pm
to make it back in time to work
no lazy Xmas for me this year...

What is your Xmas tradish?

What is underneath my Christmas Tree?

No I do not mean Lady Gaga's song:

although I think it is AMAZING!

I mean, what is under the tree at mi casa?!

This is the Xmas list I gave out:

The Hotness of SNL via James Franco

While watching SNL on Hulu last night,
I decided the following Tweet:


So I strongly suggest that you watch it on Hulu...
that way you can "fast forward" through some lame skits.

I have been a fan of James Franco
[both his acting, his humor and his body! ;o) yep!]
for quite some time.

I loved James monologue.

But there is another Hotness gift from SNL
The SNL Photo Shoot



What talented Hollywood Hottie do you want to host SNL in 2010?

On my abstinence policy with @KaceyofSweden15.
My rule was 'no sex outside of love'. A month ago, the morning after a drunken make-out with [Male Friend], I changed it.

Now my abstinence policy is 'no sex outside of love, and only after he says "I love you" at least twice*' Also *he has to say "I love you" first. I refuse to say I love you first. Even if I know I love him before he says it, HE has to say "I love you" first.

 So you are saying if Rob Pattinson walks up to you tomorrow and says "I love you" twice, you would have sex with him.

No. Because he would have to mean it. I am NOT going to rape Rob Pattinson.

No. What!? I take that back!
I would totally rape Rob Pattinson!

Project For Awesome: OPERATION Kitteh Love

Watch my video for Project For Awesome:


[It will route you to my OPERATION Kitteh Love blog]

This project launched today!
I’m going to need your help to get it off the ground level and into the AWESOME level!


What kind of information would people find on the website?

  • Animal rescue and adoption charities, hopefully world-wide.
  • How to support animal rescue and adoption charities world-wide
  • Veterinary clinics that offer affordable prices

What can I do to help launch this site?
What can’t you do!? This project is starting from scratch!
Not only can research be done about rescue centers, adoption charities and veterinary hospitals, but there is also the matters of website function and construction, website design, legal advice, promotion, etc. Basically everything that goes into running an informative website.
My dream is for this to be the most informative and efficient pet adoption directory found online!

Feel free to email me at: p4a.kittehlove@gmail.com

Please help make this world a better place!


So go there!

Sometimes "smart" books just aren't sexy enough...

A few months ago, I wandered into the Hastings in our town looking for another book in the House of Night series.

All I wanted was a vampire fix... but something more hardcore than the romance of Twilight. Something more adult than the action in House of Night.

The girl who worked there suggested the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

So I picked up the first 2 books of the series.

Last night I decided to take them off my shelf and read 'em.

The only purebred vampire left on the planet, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who murdered his parents centuries ago. But when one of his most trusted fighters is killed- orphaning a half-breed daughter unaware of her heritage or her fate - Wrath must usher the beautiful female into the world of the undead…

Racked by a restlessness in her body that wasn't there before, Beth Randall is helpless against the dangerously sexy man who comes to her at night with shadows in his eyes. His tales of brotherhood and blood frighten her. But his touch ignites a dawning hunger that threatens to consume them both…

Within the brotherhood, Rhage is the vampire with the strongest appetites. He’s the best fighter, the quickest to act on his impulses, and the most voracious lover—for inside him burns a ferocious curse cast by the Scribe Virgin. Possessed by this dark side, Rhage fears the times when his inner dragon is unleashed, making him a danger to everyone around him.

Mary Luce, a survivor of many hardships, is unwittingly thrown into the vampire world and reliant on Rhage’s protection. With a life-threatening curse of her own, Mary is not looking for love. Her faith in miracles was lost years ago. But when Rhage’s intense animal attraction turns into something more emotional, he knows that he must make Mary his alone. And while their enemies close in, Mary fights desperately to gain life eternal with the one she loves…



These books are GOOD! Very naughty. But oh so good.

The world of humans and vampires v. the lesser, that Ward builds is thrilling.
This is a world where you aren't made a vampire, you are born into it.
There is legit danger. You HATE the lesser. You feel for the Brotherhood.
But mostly the females are NOT Bella.

Beth and Mary are both very strong, brave & courageous.
You want the crazy, violent world to work in their favor.
You want them to stay in the dangerous world and be strong.

...and you want to be them.
Well to be frank, you want who & what they want.
Ward is not shy when it comes to describing going to bed with a vamp.

So basically if you want the sexy and dangerous world of a vampire,
in this series you've got it!

Just know, if you are Catholic, you'll probably need a confession after.
& my Mormon friends, yep... you guessed it.
a Bishop's Interview.

As for me? Let's just say that it is a good thing I'm single.
After both I had a nice little urge to get horizontal.
(plus there is a xmas card next to my bed that totes didn't help)

Yep. Probably going to pick up book 3 sometime soon...


I think straight boys would like it because the books are written in the views of many characters. Both male and female views. Kind of. But as I said these books have a lot of naughty material. Not quite XXX, but that is my view... To some the euphemisms might be a little graphic...

Read any good books lately?

So Thanksgiving was.... last month.

I know!
I know.

I am srsly the slowest blogger of all time!
They are all up in my head and then
TheLazy or TheDistraction
hits and bam nothing.


Who is ready for the official highlights from a
Diamond Family Turkey Day!

and you maybe?!

Last time I was able to go home was the 4th of Sept...
And this is what my home looked like:

Then my dad e-mailed me that they were getting new windows.
But apparently that's not all:

So I showed up for Turkey day...
And almost didn't recognize my own house.

I think our home looks beautiful.

I got to spend some time with my beautiful gma!

Yep. I spent some time with the brother as well.

I love seeing my nephews!
And they always have SUPER cute outfits!

Before dinner the boys met our family dog.
Zach tended
to keep a distance. Logan not so much.

But Zach loves to take pictures. Here are his:

He is able to work my dad's iPhone and his Momma's camera almost completely by himself!
He loved that Daddy's iPhone was touch though.
And he could flip through the pictures by touch.

I LOVE Daddy's cooking.
SRSLY, he is such a good cook.
I'm gonna hafta find a hubby with skillz...
I have been a spoiled lil girl!

Our family is a-growin'! Gotta use 2 tables!

Every 6 years, sometimes more,
my poor brother has to share his birthday with the turkey.

And this year he was a good Man and
let Zach share in some of the birthday sport.

Yay family!

Next up Xmas!

Things From The Beginning Of The Decade That I Miss or Feel Like Talking About

    So what do they mean by "Anthrax" was popular?
    I hope they mean a bad kind of popular.

  • 10. TRL:
    oh sweet Jesus! I loved it back in the day
