The TVM - It's December!

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Believe me, T0by, you can be a bitter as you need to. :hug: I think if our positions were reversed, I'd feel the same way. I don't love you less for it. <3

Lovely and cute story, CR.
Thank you!

We may get some snow tomorrow. I will keep you all posted!

Went to my son's Awards/Christmas gathering for Tea Kwon Do last night.
The food was good. Love pot lucks.
Where as I didn't know the people other than my son,
I will say they were nice for the most part,
But egads where do people get off thinking they can sing?

Yep, they had Kareoke (or however you spell that)
And even my son tore my ears to shreds.
Then the little kids got a hold of the mics.
And after about 15 minutes of Jingle Bells sung in voices only a mother could love
They finally got the mics away from them and gave them to a couple of teens.
Silent Night will never be the same.
The slide of the last note of "Sleep in Heavenly peace"
Nearly broke the glass in the studio.

People, there is a reason the crew at the bar call it "Croakie" ok?
Not all of us can be rock stars.

We had snow on Friday, and were forecast heavy snow today, but at the last minute, the forecast changed, and we've just had a few flakes. The surrounding hills look gorgeous though, as it's not go above freezing this weekend.

We went out to the local Christmas market this afternoon. It was freezing and very busy. They had some interesting stuff for sale (the "Transylvanian glasswork" in particular), but we didn't stop as we were trying to get into a pub for lunch. Well, we found a seat in a pub but the menu was very limited and the wait for food was an hour, so we went back out to the market to get German sausages in a bun (well, I had a crepe with Nutella and bananas :D ). The wait was much less and the food tasty!

Life is short; break the rules, forgive quickly; kiss slowly; love truly; laugh uncontrollably; and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Grab a chance and you won't be sorry for the might-have-beens. - Arthur Ransome

I never could get into the Karaoke thing. Of course, I already know I couldn't carry a tune in a bucket. :D

So we got about 1 inch of snow, yesterday it mostly melted, so now there will be mud. Yay. :P

Sounds like you had a nice day, heliona. :D A nice lunch always helps. 8)

Calma----Got your Christmas card today, thank you.

Re the Karaoke thing: People usually only do that when they're drunk. Little kids (unless they're in a children's choir) aren't good. Just loud.

Got cards from Tooks and Tygarya today. Thanks guys. :D

All of mine have been mailed out, but the people outside the US may not get theirs until New Years.

I had to update Tyg's address myself. Hopefully I have the right address for everyone else.

Oh, and Calma, thanks for your help with that.

I warily opened the envelope from Tooks, wondering if there was something "extra" inside that had not been screened by Customs... :D Twas a most beautiful cardand a nice calendar!!! Thanks for that and not adding spider eggses.

I will be sending e-cards this year so if you would like one, I can oblige. :)
