It was hot here today. I wore short sleeves, and we turned the a/c back on.

Well, at the request of my boss, I've put up a Christmas tree in my apartment. That's what I get for teaching at home.

It sort of reminds me of the Charlie Brown christmas tree. No, not the sad little one that can't hold more than one ornament. More like the after-result of Linus wraping his binky around the base and the kids put Snoopy's lights on.

It's sort of nice, actually. Even it is fake- the pine smell will have to be imported in some other way.

Another smell that reminds me of Christmas- believe it or not, bourbon. My mother would make potent bourbon balls, a kind of refridgerator cookie, every year for as long as I can remember. (The recipe is in Betty Craper, circa 1975). It was my first introduction to alcohol- at the ripe old age of three. Now, I can't have bourbon except around Christmastime.

Rum does a bang-up job rest of the year.

Ahhh the smell of Christmas. Just dont ask my brother about that one.

Xmas 1979 and I went out on Xmas Eve, drinking of course, and proceeded to down 20+ pints or so. Lo and behold, in the last pub was a contest to eat as many pickled onions as possible, to wit I scoffed 15 or so. Even better, as I won the onion contest it was then time for the pickled egg eating, surpisingly finishing 4 before retiring undefeated. And so to bed at Mummy's house.

Next Morning :
Big brother walks in DOWNSTAIRS and goes into panic mode, trying to save the family etc...from a mystery "gas leak".
Following his keen sense of smell he traced the build up of noxious vapours to my slumbering form within my cosy upstairs chamber.

He was quite irked, and surpisingly without Xmas cheer......

Ding! Ding! Ding! We just found a nickname for dinzdale- Fart Boy.

Just so you're all on the same page...

MoN- Mushrooom. Mushie for short.
dickieC- Doc
bealeblues- no nickname yet, but we all think he/she is a 13yo girl posing as her lawyer father. And a damn fine lawyer at that.

The women get flirted with and the men get...nicknames.

Yep. I think this is a pretty fair exchange.

Thank you Amanda, it's a talent....

Maybe we could emphasise your talent of juggling oranges and name you "Jugs" for short ?

Speaking of Christmas, I just awoke to a 3 inch blanket of freshly fallen snow. It's beautiful. I'm glad I don't have to drive anywhere. I'm gonna make me some snow angels.

ohhh, jealous!

This freaking climate is all screwed up; we used to get tons of snow. Now? Nothing but the odd rain shower.

I’m getting new skis today. Pointless.

Arrrr
