Céline Dion – O Holy Night
Mele Kalikimaka to all…!
g’evening pups — tut just called — his internet tubes are down *boo hiss*
i suggest we turn and give the nsa the traditional one finger salute and tell them to get the heck off tut’s tubes
Merry Christmas pups.
Oh gawd, not céline…
Don’t be mean to the NSA, Suzanne — after all, this guy works for them.
Merry Christmas! Hiya Suzzzz, CT, Q
Joyeux Noël Mes Amis !
I’ve got delish Eggnog with 15 year old Rum & Scrumptious Fruit Cake for all…
Top of the evenin’!
Hauskaa Joulua !
Uh-oh, where’s Suzanne? Is she being vexed by the NSA as well?
hey q — how ya doing tonight?
hey blue — how’s your wrists and fingers today?
hey ppd — how was your day?
petro! well slide some on down dood…. how’s toronto tonight?
token needed to go out… sorry it took so long
cmauk – my apologies… i didn’t greet you properly. tut called while i was in the shower and i had to hurry up and dry off and right after i sat down at the keyboard, token started to do that little dance at the door.
again, my apologies for not greeting ya properly. how’s cleveland tonight? (am i remembering that correctly)
Recovering nicely, thanks :)
Maybe a little tingly every now and then. As an internet addict, I gotta watch out for that.
Well, that shoots my conspiracy theory all to hell.
a few years after we went to computer aided dispatcher at the ped, several dispatchers started getting troubles with their hands and fingers.
i try to remember to shake out my hands regularly – esp if doing a lotta keyboarding
well fuck *laughing* sorry dood
That’s good — I’ll add that to my repertoire. I went into the physical therapy department of my HMO a few years ago and got some finger and wrist exercises, which I don’t do as often as I should.
tonight oregon pbs is showing the yule log. they parked a camera in front of a fire in a huge fireplace and every now and then ya see an arm throw in another log or two. songs of the season, mainly instrumental with a heavy emphasis on piano and standards, playing in the background.
i’ve been missing having a fire at this place… tonight i have one to enjoy :)
Happy holidays all.
hey vmt — how ya doing tonight?
I was putting out the Cheese and Crackers …help yourselves.
Christmas breakfast will be our special French Toast, topped with your choice of Bailey’s or Grand Marnier. I recommend one of each…
Great. Hope you’re enjoying the holiday.
ohmystars…. you are putting on quite a spread dood…. thank you so very much…
i am. spent the day with jen and her family — i’m so totally flunking grandmahood… yet again i forgot my camera. but i did remember to bring all the presents.
Not much of a camera person myself. Have one, think of myself as a reasonably good photographer. But I prefer to travel without one; otherwise, I wind up looking at everything through the lens of a camera.
Nice. Good for you. I’m waiting for guests myself. Should be fun. The nice thing about grandhoodidness is that there is no accountability. Everything is permitted so run with it.
i’ve forgotten to take it the last 3 times i went there. every time i have intentions of taking pics of julsie and maybe a video of her. she’s really at a cute age — doesn’t quite understand christmas and still learning how to open presents.
she did like the outfits i got her and kept holding up the dress to her chest. wish i had gotten a picture or two of that. she’s just like her mom — her face totally lit up at the sight of clothing in her christmas presents. jen was such a little fashionista at a wee age
Big Hugs to you all … Merry Christmas !
i now understand what’s so grand about being a grand… it really is a special relationship.
(((petro))) merry christmas dood
It sounds like you’ll still have the images emblazoned in your memory.
lots of bell ringing for local SA – great day
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah (although it’s too late for that now) — the whole nine yards.
that i will :) thanks for reminding me of that. i was totally bummed when jen asked if i had remembered the camera…
yay! someone put a Krugerrand in a portland SA kettle… worth $1700 per the local news
Cleveland is good. we have snow. Supposed to get bunch more on Thursday.
Ah, lucky guess.
Almost forgot to mention — check out Twitter for the hashtag #NRAChristmasSongs. Some of them are pretty good.
We had a great turnout of volunteers for our bell ringing — any size donation is appreciated. And we lucked out with the weather — clear and cool, no rain and wind today.
i have a possibility of getting a wee bit around 3am and by 7am it will turn to chunky rain (rain/snow mix) and by noon it will all be heavy rain. no white christmas in st helens but there’s a lotta snow in the mts
Well last year we had a wet Christmas. No snow at Christmas. Had a bunch before though.
But we will have a White Christmas this year.
Well…good night and Merry Christmas all.
a very good thing
g’nite cmauk — merry christmas
Good night. I take it you’re Finnished for the evening.
Merry Christmas pupses.
No, no snow here but Timberline lodge has a base of 104″ with 260″ total so far this year since 9-1. Supposed to dry out and get cold starting Thursday for at least a week..
Went to a Christmas eve get together which didn’t end well. One of the folks, a 91 yr old, had to be taken to Emergency. She seems ok now but it was a scare!
hey starbuck — how horrible! glad that she’s ok… what are your plans for tomorrow?
Once you hit 90, things can get a bit touch-and-go.
looks like tut’s still without tubes… i gotta head out pups.
i hope each and every one of you have a wonderful christmas day tomorrow. hope to see ya tomorrow night
g’nite all and thanks for putting up with me instead of your usual host
Good night, Suzanne.
