We had Pelks and Christian over for latkes and apple sauce tonight because we wanted to try a cool recipe for latkes. They had artichoke hearts and leeks and were very tasty!

We also broke out the Hannukah activity box that Ted sent me last year. In addition to coloring in stickers we also wrote two poems which I will take the liberty of sharing with you:

Cats are pretty
Happy cats make me happy
Are cats real?
No, they're not
Unfortunately cats are not real in Uruguay
Kats? Cats!
Are we satisfied with this poem?
ow could we not be?!?

On a similar theme:

Long, long ago
And ever so far away
The lad had consumption
Kristin came to the rescue
Everybody celebrated Hannukah!

Advent Adventures!

So I wish read a sign outside of the Sem Co-op today. Sadly it read Advent Alternative.

But just think about it! Advent Adventures! Is this the time of waiting? Are you joyfully anticipating your Lord's arrival? Prepare yourself for the coming of the Lord by pushing yourself to the limit! Climb the cliffs of Sinai! Swim across the red sea! Follow the star across the desert! Personal actualization guaranteed!

That would be awesome.

watch quandry

So, I had to get my watch cut off by a jeweler down town. I have no idea how it got so stuck that it had to be cut off. But now I'm with out a watch. My everyday watch is with my mom, it needed a new battery and a new wrist band. The watch that got cut off was my "dress watch". The question now is whether I liked it enough to get the clasp fixed, or if I should just get a new watch that I like more, and fits me better.
However there is no question that I need to fix my watch situation quickly. I really like knowing what time it is.

this is a disaster

In a brilliant show of incompetence I'm stuck in my watch. It's not a huge deal, but it is mildly irritating. It's poking me. I have one of those watches with a clasp that goes "in-out" and it got stuck on the "in".

Now I'm going to have to sleep with my watch on. Halp! please somebody! really wants watch off!
