winter is coming

Oh hi. You ready for Christmas? Cold enough for you? Working late or lately working? Eh Eh Eh?

Friday night an ice storm rolled through town and we're still digging ourselves out from under it. The drive home from work, normally fifteen minutes, took over an hour. Barely made it home in one piece. Here's what the drive looked like from inside:



Saturday I worked. I also had a caprese sandwich from the bakery in the lobby, which isn't that big of a deal because I get those a lot, but I just thought it was time to mention it. They're really tasty.

Saturday night a Christmas party at the SLC202 house. You could tell it was a Christmas party because of the tree.



Also the steamy smell of delicious wassail (not pictured).

Picture vortex!

The party was wild. Screaming and running and chasing and throwing. Sounds bawdy, but I'm just talking about the kids.

Priya likes to observe her beverages closely.


Legend knows how to count to 200. There can be no doubt about that.


Next year you'll all be eating this. Fire and Ice.


Sunday I went Christmas shopping. I was worried about crowds and stress but it wasn't that bad. Unfortunately once I was out and about I realized that I don't know my friends and family very well so I didn't know what to get them. I ended up just picking up ten of the same thing. Hope they like it. (spoiler):

  5. Some say the world will end in fire. Some say ice. From what I've tasted of desire, I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate, to say that for destruction ice is also great and would suffice.
