Just got home from dropping CodingCutieK at ATL; she’s off to Michigan for a few days on business. And it’s mighty quiet without a wife or dog(s). 🙁

OTOH, I can cook some stuff that BK’s not terribly fond of and shall take shameless advantage of the opportunity. 🙂

I see matzo balls and gefilte fish in your future, Fatwa. Safe travels to Brenda.

Hai, Mac and Sven!

She’ll be working at their local office (which is, alas, not as convenient to CasaK as it might be). However, everyone she’s met so far has been very welcoming and seem nice. It also appears to be an opportune time to join this company and the bennies are purty good.

Since Brenda likes matzo ball soup, I won’t be making any of that. Insofar as gefilte fish goes, nobody likes that carp. Or white fish. Or whatever. 🙂

Glad teh tornadoes stayed south of you, Mac.

It’s going to be 76 here today and fairly warm nights for the next few days…and then down into the thirties at night staring New Year’s Eve.

Bah!

A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, Sven, and Mac!

Save travels for Brenda and safe cooking for Fatwa.
I’m glad the Texas contingent has made it safely through the storms (haven’t heard from TeX -- hope things are fine on the Lost Animal Ranch).

Hai, Paddy!

Thanks for all the “safe travel” wishes, Gerbiliños.

For Sven: Botswana has a heavy metal subculture!

JetsetterK just phoned to say she arrived safely in Detroit; she’ll let me know when she’s ensconced at her hotel.

Jeebus…POTUS and FLOTUS are unbelievably tone deaf fucking pigs: The White House pastry chef made a 500 pound gingerbread replica of the White House for Christmas.

But wait…there’s moar!

Interestingly, The Associated Press noted that this year’s gingerbread house differs from past efforts in a not-so-subtle way … [Executive Pastry Chef Susan] Morrison used dark chocolate “instead of white chocolate as in years past.”

O RLY??? I rather doubt that’s a coincidence, given what race-baiters they are.

Too bad there aren’t many great white sharks off the coast of Hawaii. 👿

Just heard from Mrs. Arbuckle, who got to her hotel easily…and got out of Detroit unscathed. 😉

Detroit? Tell her to stay safe. And maybe buy a house or two while she’s there--I hear they got good prices.

BK has from time to time looked longingly at amazing fixtures in abandoned Detroit homes pictured on the internet. She’s also pondered salvage missions (if we had the resources).

I always remind her that in addition to the salvage crew, you’d have to factor in an armed security team, too. 😉

Oh…she’s actually in Troy, which is about 35 miles -- and a far cry -- from Detroit.

Took the family to a Ducks game -- amazingly they beat the Flyers 4-2. Interesting game -- less than 5 minutes into the 1st period, the Flyers had 5 men in the penalty box. On the down side, it took about 40 minutes to get out of the parking lot.
