Pretend this is yesterday, 12/24/09...
     It's Christmas Eve. As I am about to go clean my room, Geoff calls me and reminds me that I have to go over to his house to help him bake. I arrive there around 11 and we commence... sorta. His family friends are over so they took over the kitchen for a bit. In the meantime, we went to Togo's for lunch and we bought some ingredients. As we go home, Brent and Geoff's mom was standing outside. Fucking Geoff, he HAD to yell, "Hey Brent! I got you an asian girl!" I was like, "WOW!" but also laughing at the same time. When we got closer to them, Brent looked at me, then he was like, "Is she really for me?" LOl!!!
     Anyways, most of the people in the kitchen had left so we finally began... after eating lunch of course. We just made a crapload of sugar cookies. It was interesting, Geoff subbed Vani-ex to Almond-ex. The taste is far more superior, I'm going to do that to my cookies now! So I made sugarcookie sandwhiched together with Chocolate ganauche and drizzled with caramel sauce. I also made some regular chocochip cookies. YUM! Geoff premade meringue nests and butterscotch ice cream. It took a long while until we finished. I think we left around 7 PM.
     Jeff lives about 5 minutes away from Geoff. Oh. My. God. His house is absolutely AMAZING! It's 10 times bigger than Geoff's house. I was about to have a friken heart-attack. His house is beautiful! Anyways, we get there and set up, meet people and help serve food. It was such an experience. The food was amazing! Jeff's Auntie also made drinks for everyone, she's like a bartender! She made me a drink too!
Picture
     Don't worry, it's non-alcoholic. Lol. Anyways, plates came in and out, washed, dried, then plated for another round of food. Super fun! I got to learn some plating techniques. I HAVE to say that everyone loved our dessert plate the best... Ahem. Lol. They came back for the ice cream, which was uber AMAZING! I'm so inspired to start making ice cream now. Anyways, Geoff was buzzed, actually, everyone was buzzed or drunk. OMG! This girl who got friken wasted passed out on the ground, I tried to help her but she was so friken heavy! Then Paul, a PCI graduate who came to help, came to help carry her to the couch. Man! It was crazy, no one knew what to do. But yea, I was DD for Geoff and I drove him home. We chatted for a bit then I went home.
     I talked to Blake on the phone until i kept dozing off and forgetting what we were talking about. Lol. Sorry babe!
     I just want to say that I have a lot of respect towards Jeff. Yes, he maybe that smoking, beer drinking, party boy, but when you get to know him and the things he went through, you'll understand. Tonight was basically meant for his entire family. Everytime his mom came in to help, he would shoo her away, he would tell her to go and enjoy her self, or when his dad came in to make coffee, he got the servers to clear the table and to make coffee for his dad. You could tell from his eyes that he truly cares for his family. Jeff is a very fortunate person. Although his family is rich and lives in a beautiful house, he doesn't take advantage of that, he uses his own earned cash. I look up to Jeff because he has gone through so much life-changing experiences. Although he lives life on the edge, you know you could always trust him for whatever you want to. He'll be straight up with you but also caring when the time calls for it. I'm glad I've met Jeff, I hope him and his girlfriend gets married and lives happily ever after.

     Today [Yesterday] was fast pace at school. We made a bunch of yule logs; we frosted them, and made it look like a log, we also made a bunch of decorations for it. After the yule log excitement, we just put together our black forest cake. Yum! Chef told us to freeze it so we had to complete it tomorrow. Chef Udo was so mad! He was like, "YOU DON'T FREEZE BLACK FOREST CAKES! IF YOU WERE IN GERMANY, THEY'D SHOOT YOU!" (He's German, obviousy). But no, they don't hate each other, Chef Udo was just complaining.
     After class, Amanda came over and helped me with my PJ's. Then I went to pick up the mushroom from Kim and headed over to Geoff's house. Jeremy and Paul were both there. OMG! They keep making fun of me about Brent. Jeeze! Yes, Brent, Geoff's roommate. But yea, they made some delicious mushroom risotto. After a while, the guys left so it was just Geoff and I. We ended up watching Salon Takeover. HECKA GOOD! That fat lady is such a prick! She has the ugliest hairstyle also!
     Around 11ish I think, I took Amanda over to Blake's pad so she can get her stuff. We stayed there for a bit then us 3 went downstairs and talked for HOURS outside. It was cold but I'm glad I got to cuddle with Blake! He's so warm. Hehe. After I dropped Amanda home, I went home and waited for Wilson to come.
     Wilson and Kenny came to borrow an angled screwdriver to fix Darren's car. Then they went home. Anyways, I got to stay up and finish Blake's gift now. Night!
