Memos from December 2006

Merry Christmas!

Another year where the Hol­i­days just sees a bloom in lights, nativ­ity scenes and great, home-cooked meals. It’s bad and good at the same time, in terms of the food that is. You see your calo­ries jump up to an ulti­mate high dur­ing these last weeks of the year. You try not to eat so much but you look at the table and just need to get a munch out of each and one of the spe­cially, pre­pared entrees. And then thats where it hits you, you just con­sumed two rounds worth of a buf­fet meal.

It’s all good though, it makes the cooks happy and make them feel sat­is­fied as the hours of work they put in to cook­ing one dish isn’t in vain. But damn, food coma comes next and that is a dif­fer­ent story on its own. Any­ways, on with the fiesta in your stom­achs. Merry Christ­mas or Happy Chrismahanukwanzakah!

PS. Go watch Curse of the Golden Flower. If you like Hero and/or House of Fly­ing Dag­gers, then It’s def­i­nitely worth the full price. That, or if you just want to start your year of with a great movie.
