    Christmas Eve activities

    So watcha all doing this evening?

    We're just hang'n out partaking in some food, drink and Christmas Movies. Btw, I highly recommend silver clouds for those needing drink suggestions:

    1 ounce Kahlua
    1 ounce Amaretto
    1/2 ounce Grand Marnier (optional)
    then fill up the rest of the glass with milk
    drink with a pink straw and your pinky held high

    I think I'll just chug a bottle of Crown Royal until I no longer can.

    But actually, I got my first xmas present to myself in the mail today. Earthworm Jim for the SNES. So I'm going to clean up the place a bit, then play that into the wee hours, most likely.

    So far this evening I've managed to partially clean my LHT and I'm now eating a bowl of chicken noodle soup. It took me about an hour and a half to clean the LHT, and I haven't even started on the wheels yet.

    I love rum balls. Then again I'm part German so I like almost anything with sugar and booze. Yeah, you might want to continue your search for xmas music.

    We're spending the day with my best friend. We'll eat more cookies and some cupcakes. Then we're watching a movie. The theme of the day is "Let's have fun away from party poopers" (basically the members of our families who go a little nutso this time of year). I also have a bunch of presents to open and I'm like a hyper 8 year old around gifts.

    Just returned home from a late afternoon gathering of my wife's family at her uncle's home and catching up on Email whilst my wife is upstairs wrapping gifts for the kids and grandkids.

    Once she's done with that, I'll light a fire and give her a little red box that she doesn't know she's getting since she thinks she's gotten all of her presents as I tend to give all year long when the opportunity presents itself and just say, "Merry Christmas".

    She'll get a teary-eyed and tell me that it's not fair because she thought we weren't exchanging gifts given all of the aforementioned pre-Christmas gift giving and didn't get me anything because, well, I'm too hard to buy for anyway since I tend to get what I want or need when I want or need it. That'll lead to a hug and a kiss and then, well.... use your imagination.

    Every year since we were 12 one of my friends has a Christmas eve party with caroling, food and drinks. It's the one time of the year I see lots of old friends and there are usually 50 or 60 people there.

    Well, the guy who throws this party is on a 2 day delay from Portland and won't be there. His mom has decided the show must go on and we will all be there without him. I suspect it will be a bit weird.

    I'm going to spend the majority of this evening carefully inspecting the inside of my eye lids. You can't be too careful with that.

    I could have been cleaning the bikes but instead I have been excavating them from our garage which collapsed under the weight of snow today:



    Got them all out out but one (the most irreplaceable natch my wife's high-school schwinn worldsport) plus the burley trailer. I posted this pic earlier in the winter cycling forum.

    It's also my 4 yr-old's bday. She is at church w/ my wife, I am home policing the 7 yr old who had a world - class meltdown at the beginning of the service. He is doing community service in exchange (talking to my mom on the phone). I am also heating up the pink birthday soup for the bday girl (borscht + sour cream)

    Yes, I frequently check the insides of my eye-lids for cracks. So far so good, but it never hurts to be diligent; especially when I'm sitting in the easychair with my feet up in the reclined position.
    When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished by how much he'd learned in seven years. Mark Twain (apocryphal)

    Just sitting here sippin' on Jim Beam. looking at my new/old bike, looking for any dirt I may have missed. I was cleaning my bike earlier. Kinda hiding out from Santa Claus. Did I ever tell you I was afraid of Santa as a small child? To this day, I keep a respectable didtance from anybody dressed up as Santa.

    Yikes!

    I had a foot and a half of snow on my deck. I was wondering if it was going to do some self-demolition as well.

    Now the snow has turned to rain, and it is going to be slick ice tomorrow morning .

    Is your wife's bike damaged beyond repair, or is it just still buried?
