Better than Pumpkin pie

This year i was voted into the 'desert' category for Thanksgiving!! 
Now, this is bigger deal than one might expect.. i mean what's Thanksgiving Dinner with out Thanksgiving Desert!?!?! 
So instead of the regular ol' pumpkin pie... i went ahead and made a favorite of mine...and Paula's :) 
Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle
courtesy of Paula Deen- Food Network
  • 2 (14-ounce) packages gingerbread mix
  • 1 (5.1-ounce) box cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 (30-ounce) can pumpkin pie filling
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 (12-ounce) container frozen whipped topping
  • 1/2 cup gingersnaps, optional
  • Directions:
Bake the gingerbread according to the package directions; cool completely. 
Meanwhile, prepare the pudding and set aside to cool. Stir the pumpkin pie filling, sugar, and cinnamon into the pudding once it has cooled. 
Crumble 1 batch of gingerbread into the bottom of a large, pretty bowl. Trifle Bowl being ideal of course.
Pour 1/2 of the pudding mixture over the gingerbread, then add a layer of whipped topping. 
Repeat with the remaining gingerbread,pudding, and whipped topping. Sprinkle of the top with crushed gingersnaps, if desired. Refrigerate overnight.

Blinged out Ivories

ok... i've been fiddling around with the idea of learning to play the piano. Luckily for me pianos have come a long way from when i was a little kid... 
For example; if i had an extra $800,000 lying around and wanted to feed my piano learning obsession, i'd go and swoop up one of these;

CrystalRoc and Steinway & Sons, is bringing out the BLING!!! These fully-crystallized and custom built grand pianos are the newest addition to its collection of other blinged out musical instruments. They are encrusted with over a million, individually placed Swarovski crystals. No two of these pianos will be alike! The color and design are personalized to the whatever the purchaser likes!! Which means the options are ENDLESS!!! 
How far instruments have some in the last few decades!! 
to check out other blinged out instruments, hit up and puruuuuuuse!! 
have a musical day!

What ever happened to Customer Service???

I'm sitting on the phone... i'm on hold. 

I'm chatting online with a "customer service rep"... i'm on hold

I am in the store waiting to address a longstanding issue... i'm in line. 

THEN when i finally get to the front... "i'm sorry our policy doesn't support that issue" 


Well as a CONSUMER of YOUR product... and i'm unhappy with something...need it fixed and I  want it fixed the FUCK NOW!!! THAT'S how i feel this convo should have started out, since i'm sure the outcome would still be the same!! 
Aint that a bitch.. i call and am polite... when i'm the one with the issue... and instead i am bent over and fucked without a kiss. Since there is a serious lack of customer service.... BOOOOO to T-MOBILE!!
