Christmas Eve 2010

We celebrated Christmas Mexican style. That means that the big deal is Christmas Eve, with Christmas Day dedicated to relaxation, talking to friends on the phone, and eating leftovers.

I absolutely love it.

So last night I prepared a big honking turkey with all the trimmings, and the customary upside-down pineapple cake. (The guys don't care what I feed them, as long as there is upside-down pineapple cake. They are easily amused, as you can see.)

It was great to have over the Dark Child, El Brato, and the wonderful Miss E, not to mention my beloved ballistabob. The turkey was awesome. I usually bake it upside down, at very low temperature, and only turn it up for the last hour of cooking so it can get nice and gold. It takes a much longer time than usual, but the result is a tender and juicy bird that falls apart even without touching it. And a crispy brown skin (yum).

After dinner, we opened presents as it is customary. My hunny bunny got me a helm so I can fight cut and thrust, and a nifty Provost jersey. Since I got my White Scarf back in 2009, I had been coveting one of those. Now I have one.

I feel special.

Who needs jewelry when one can have a helm? And a jersey?

Just sayin'

So we ate, we laughed, and we had too much cake. (Thank goodness for morning spinning classes! Hooray for the preemptive burning of calories!)

Today, we will get together again, weather permitting.

Perhaps we will eat leftovers. Perhaps we will order Chinese.

Who knows? The day is young, and full of possibilities ...

In the meantime, it is snowing and it seems that we are having a white Christmas after all.

So Merry Christmas to you all, and happy birthday Baby J!

And happy Hogswatch, Kwanzaa, Saturnalia, Winter Solstice - and while we're in the topic of birthdays, happy birthday Mithra too!

We also hope that you had a happy Hannukah, and may the Flying Spaghetti Monster touch us all with his noodly appendage!

PS. To the atheists, have a wonderful day!

PSS. If I missed anyone, just fill in the blank. We are happy to wish you a happy holiday, whichever that may be!

Peace on Earth!

Belfebe out.

You only JUST got your jersey? Well, at least you have it now, and we can get a picture of all 3 FFG provosts with your jerseys :-)
