Feros,

Not necessarily contrary since I know plenty of English speakers that say "Happy Christmas!" Of course they are from the UK but still!

Aeglos,

Sokay. This year's Boxing Day will be our Christmas since my brother's fiancee wanted to have Christmas at her place.

Well it's also called St. Stephen's Day/Feast of St. Stephen in some places. But yes.

Happy Celebratory Event Day~

Made rum-raisin brandy glazed ham, scalloped potatoes, asparagus, and biscuits for Christmas dinner, with cheesecake for dessert. Decided to use a mandoline for the potatoes. The good news is, I didn't get any blood or flesh in the potatoes. Bad news is the right thumb is now held together with surgical steri-strips, gauze, and tape.

Naturally, my insurance starts Monday because I couldn't get the enrollment system to understand that I lost my insurance as of 12/1/17. It was stuck in open enrollment mode, so I figured "What the heck, it's only a couple weeks."

The klutz internet forum said it was worth trying to tape back together. If it hardens or gets infected, just take it off and let the divot heal. Sometimes it takes; sometimes it doesn't.

Three lessons from today:
* When you start thinking "I should switch to the holder", stop cutting immediately.
* There are tons of digital decapitations at the winter holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas). It's incredibly common.
* My typing teacher was wrong when she said you could cut off your left thumb and still touch type just fine. The left thumb is the emergency backup thumb.

My trash looks like a CSI evidence locker.

Dinner was delish. I put nutmeg in the scalloped potatoes, which was seriously tasty!

Oh my goodness Treppa! Be well!
And maybe,... let someone else cut the potatoes next time? ;)

Hint taken Badger! I'm looking right now! :)

Merry Christmas to all! And to all a good night sleep! :D

Merry Christmas, Treeforters!

I'm off to work. These holiday nights are nice and quiet.

Oh yeah, caught up on some franchise movies this Christmas: Rogue One and Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Also introduced my roomie to the sadly defunct Galavant.

Please, please be careful, Treppa.


Get better soon, Treppa!

So I MIGHT have overindulged with like an 1/16th of brandy, more than a thimbleful of Shnapps, a glass and a half of champagne, and a glass of white wine.

Fortunately people stopped me from going further and of course it make caroling with my dog that much more fun. ;) I did get a little white Christmas, but now we're in preparation of my brother's fiancee and her family having a TRUE Seitz family Christmas dinner. (Though last night's dinner of smelts, fondue (bread fondue) and salad greens will be as memorable as the night we tried to the Feast of the Seven Fishes one 23rd of December.)

So now with that going on and my mom and brother making Welsh cakes (which are SOOOOO good!), and our guests will be in later this evening, I look forward to the meal that celebrates our family the best. So I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and I wish you all a Happy Boxing Day/St. Stephen's Day. Wassail!

I second that. Since I worked in a Restaurant, I learned on Day one to keep fingers away from the blades. Not to be preachy, Treppa. Just heal up, okay?

The potato was too big. :(

Awesome D & D story.


Dinner is finished. Dessert was cookies and thus good. Also some port. Mostly I'm ready for the fact tomorrow and until Jan 4th, I'll be up at 6 am to take care of my neighbor's dog who I do adore. So it will be interesting...on top of the fact my dog doesn't much care for company. (IE people scare him.)

So, finally leaving town tomorrow to go visit MY family for the holiday, (whats left of it) ;P

Driving all day through the rain,... the cold, cold rain,...

Projected high in Tulsa, OK tomorrow? 32 degrees F.
Yes, we are bringing our coats. The ones we never get to wear here in south Lousy-anna! ;P

See you all when I get back! (On or about the Jan 3rd-ish) :)

Preemptive Happy New Year Celebration Announcement! :D

I awoke this morning to quite the winter wonderland. Admittedly I'd have prefer to have had this either Monday or Tuesday (or even Sunday) but eh.

Also when awoke, to care for my neighbor's dog and their cats, I didn't realize that people were sleeping in a room that wasn't previously designated AS a bedroom. So...yeah. Awkward.

Dealt with a migraine since Christmas Day. It didn't spoil my holiday, thank goodness, but it did make it hard to deal with loud voices.


Erie County in Pennsylvania now has Fifty inches of snow. A state of emergency has been declared. Those who have family there should call.


I saw that on the news. Incredible.


Yeah. Pittsburgh had some really bad blizzards several years ago. Hope we don't get anything like that this year.

We have 50 here today. I have almost stopped shivering.

If anyone wondered...

(a) how does uncombed Drejk looks like
(b) how does word Koschei is pronounced
(c) how does Drejk sounds

Here is Drejk pronuncing Koschei for Mairkurion's research.

Maybe I should record a few more of those and link them on blog?


I found this quiz while working on a puzzle in Microsoft Puzzle. I got 42 of 50 correct, and the quiz results gave me a Masters-equivalent score. Not bad for someone who only graduated from High School.

O_o I Googled this because I couldn't believe it. It's up to over 5'. Which is taller than me.


Yes, I know. Erie, PA always gets the brunt of the Lake-effect snow.

Holy Crap 65.1!

Erie, Pennsylvania, Smashes State Snowfall Record With More Than 65 Inches of Snow Since Christmas Eve

Talk about a White Christmas.

Imagine that in NYC?


Yesterday was the 1 year anniversary of me spraining my ankle got me thinking about how nuts the last 14 months have been:

1. Injured my back so bad I had to go to the Chiropractor for the first time in 15 years in October 2016. Due mainly to the move, for the 4th year in a row, to a new rental house.
2. Just as I am feeling better I sprained my ankle December 26, 2016, spending my entire vacation in bed off my feet.
3. Got the flu, nasty one too in February 2017 and Tonsillitis in September 2017, forcing me to use vacation days instead of sick days killing my Christmas vacation this year.
4. Bankrupt in 2017.
5. Divorce proceedings begin in 2017.

Here's hoping 2018 is a lot f~#~ing better than all that (well after the Divorce is finalized anyhow)...


Damn, I hate to hear all that. I sincerely hope everything is definitely better in 2018.

Well if you do...I expect my home to only get about half of it.

Thanks Freehold. I suppose that's why I generally look forward instead of backwards, behind is so frequently a dumpster fire it's just better off looking forward :-)

My mother-in-law (retired home ec teacher) is terrified of mandolin slicers. I use one, but always with the guard no matter how big the object I’m slicing.

I hope it heals up!
