Flammenkatz & Other Holiday Treats

So amidst the usual holiday staples of sausages, cheese, and new moccasins, there were a couple of surprises.  The most lively was when my sister by another mother came by w/ her husband.  She asked if the cat on the table was the C-in-C's Xmas gift.  I said no, it was just my mom's old cat and then went in to take him off the table.  At that exact moment his tail swished over a candle and, just like in a sitcom, flames started rolling off it.  I grabbed his tail and blew it out before it did more than singe his fur so the only thing he knew was that I was befouling his precious. The look I got from him.  The room filled w/ foul smelling smoke.  Reminded us all of the old days of family get togethers when 90% of the adults were chimneys. Kitty is fine BTW.

Also got to meet my niece's SO.  He's a history major w/ philosophy minor.  Can we say "Would you like fries with that?" boys and girls?  He's also a gamer so not a total loss. Her gift from me was a collection of 'geeky' stickers for her laptop.

Two notable gifts.  From my mom I got a set of giant wooden six-sided 'lawn dice' which she had found and decided I had to have. 


and my sister,  ah yes my sister, the one who brought me to my first 'Con when I was 17 and really got me started on this whole ride.  She got me a conversational audio CD. Not Klingon.  Not Elvish.  Dothraki.  Yes.  Dothraki from 'Game of Thrones'.

Between German, Russian, and now this, I should have lots of ways to insult and threaten, I mean educate yeah educate, my students.

Tonight and tomorrow are recovery from long drives, sugar loaded kids, and smoke filled rooms.  Gun show this weekend.

Closed For The Holidays

Unless Kaveman does some posting I'm out of here for a few days.  Political stuff/Snark/Anti-prodding will likely resume when I get back.  Until then, enjoy some holiday silliness.

Ya, I peed a little.

Now this is funnier than that time Jehovas witnesses showed up when I was killing a rabbit for my pet snake to eat.

Gaming Geekery

So w/ a little Xmas money burning a hole in my pocket I picked up a few accessories.  For my netbook, after many years of being bare, I finally found a sticker to put on it.


A bit bigger than I expected but it works nicely.

Also I added a bit to my clinky collection from Rare Elements Foundry. Their 2 different '500' pieces and the new '3' piece water coins.
 
 For a gift,  I also got my personal mini painter a set of the '3's since he's really fond of the collection I have. While a bit pricey, These have added a lot of fun to the game.

There was also an aborted attempt to install some old video games on my laptop using a windows emulator.  It worked (mostly) but there was no sound.  He's going to try some more ideas so the full experience can be had.
