Woody & Ted: "What Have I Done?"
Posted: Tuesday December 23rd, 2008 by

I'm not big on the overbloated pomp of Christmas. I like the family aspect of it. And I do like giving other people presents. But when it comes to trees and lights and such... meh. So, I'm more than happy to go over to Taks' parents' house to celebrate the holiday with her family.

Christmas dinner is part of the tradition and everyone makes something. Everyone but me that is. See, I'm no cook. I can navigate my way around the kitchen when it comes to the basics. But anything more complex than spaghetti puts me on edge. So when the food list started circulating so we know who's making/bringing what, I felt kind of useless. I promptly offered to try to make something from the list, admitting openly that it was likely to fail miserably. They all know I can't cook.

After talking to Taks about which item I should pick, she suggested I make something that reminded me of Christmas. I've never had it; but, Figgy Pudding came immediately to mind. Now here I am just a few days away from Christmas and I'm stressing it just a little. It's going to be interesting. It's quite possible people are going to be eating figgy bricks or figgy soup. Maybe a little of both.

I'll keep you posted.

Note: Figgy pudding isn't really a pudding at all. It's a souffle.

I've already had to edit/delete quite a few posts because people are ignoring two of the forum rules. One, "Unspoken" Rule #5 Most outside links are removed from writeup threads. And two, "Unspoken" Rule #10 Don't offer unsolicited advice.

The Figgy Pudding was a success. To the points of drawing comments like "Well, we know what you're bringing next year."

Today's Pimpage: Woody is wearing a "Corporate Zombie" shirt and Ted is wearing an "Anthill Trap" shirt from Threadless.Com.
