Underneath the Tree

Postby Betty Felon » Fri Dec 19, 2008 12:12 am

Dear The Nicest and Best-taste-in-music-having Board on the Internet,

Merry Christmas! I bear gifts!

First, the perfect answer to the question "What do you want for Christmas?"

And secondly, the most precious and lovely version of a holiday standard I've heard in years:Goldfrapp's version of Winter Wonderland

I hope you enjoy these presents, and that your holidays are full of cookies.

love,
betty

in highschool, I took ASL from a pretty unqualified teacher for a while, but the one thing that stuck with me over the years was the fact that she made us learn some christmas songs in sign language and she translated "winter wonderland" into "white rain dirt plain".

And Betty I love that card... I know so many people that would love that!

I don't post much here, but I enjoy all the discourse and witty banter that goes on here.

Thanks Betty. Loving the card -- is that a really, really, really big tree, or a micro-small Apatosaurus?

It's wonderous brontosaurus! And Pluto is a planet! The end.

Recipe: Hot Buttered Rum

Ingredients

* 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
* 2 cups light brown sugar
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
* Pinch ground cloves
* Pinch salt
* Bottle dark rum
* Boiling water

Directions

In a bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. Refrigerate until almost firm. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the butter mixture into 12 small mugs. Pour about 3 ounces of rum into each mug (filling about halfway). Top with boiling water (to fill the remaining half), stir well, and serve immediately.


Yummmmmmm. Unsalted butter is not ALWAYS punishment.

well... there is the Long Winter's "Christmas with you is the best" and of course, Harvey Danger's "Sometimes you have to work on Christmas."

The prosecutors wouldn't have had a case if Dee hadn't left that guitar pick in her cleavage. Like some spiders and insects, cold weather can force Twisted Sisters indoors; the number of cross-dressing band home invasions has skyrocketed lately.

I saw this picture show up on my Facebook feed, and I didn't even make the connection. Embarrassed, much? But great photograph! Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
