sigh -or- mmmm.... ice cream...

Food... coma... [c] [f]

We had a baked, glazed ham and a brined turkey for dinner tonight, along with string beans, mashed potatoes, stuffing, two gravies/sauces (one for each meat), and jellied cranberry sauce.

After I had finished dinner I basically was unable to do anything; I'm recovered from that now, but now tiredness is setting in. Putting it all away was a bit of a bear, and required some creative re-arrangement of the contents of the fridge - the turkey alone was 18 and a half pounds and took up a good half a shelf in the fridge; the ham took up the other half. Wrapping the turkey was an interesting exercise as well; it was too big for bags, so we mummified it in plastic wrap and then put an outer layer of tinfoil over it. It worked, I guess.

That brined turkey is dangerous; it should be registered with the government for our safety. I just can't not eat it. It's terrible. It is SO good - I normally like turkey, but this is like the crack-cocaine of the turkey world (perhaps of the entire poultry world). God damn.

Getting the kids to bed tonight was another difficult task; neither one was much up for the whole concept of bed, and both were being a pain in the butt. Still, the sooner they were in bed, the sooner we could finish up and get to bed, and the sooner we're all asleep, the sooner I can watch them open their presents. Yay! I'm looking forward to seeing their reactions tomorrow. Should be fun. :)

Anyhoo. Merry Christmas, all, I'm off to bed. G'nite!

Because I'm bored...

...decided to go play around online. Thing to do today: horoscopes! Plus, reader participation at the end!
First up, my sun sign profile...Collapse )Next up, my Chinese zodiac description...Collapse )
So, gentle reader, there you go. Sort of interesting, the differences and similarities between both. Here's something for all of you to do with your spare time: tell me how accurate you think they are. Feel free to be as honest or brutal as you want, but I'm curious to see what people have to say about 'em. Other people've posted those "tell me what you really think blah de blah de blah blah" polls or quizzes or whatever, but that's boring. So you all get to critique my horoscopes and tell me how closely they actually match me. Ready...? GO!

(Incidentally, I believe anonymous comments are still allowed in my LJ, and this is a public entry. Even if you don't know me well, I'd be curious to see what impression you've gotten of me from my journal or whatever. So feel free...)
