Interesting Times

OK, Anthem's nearly 26 year old, but this boat work thing is taking on the aura of a fetish. Might have been easier to just build a new one although Gary & Jackie, who spent 23 years building theirs, might take issue. Anyway it's just wrong. Anybody want to front the cash for a new Cabo Rico 54? I will gladly have Wimpy pay you on Tuesday.

Don't use Kiwi bucks, however, as they are plastic and stick together. Bloody nuisance. ANZ (that's Ay In Zed for us parochial Yanks) have a scale to weigh bills for accuracy before counting out. Probably saves the bank from insolvency... could also be the outrageous ATM withdrawal fees.

Had lamb roast with mint jelly on Christmas eve with various accoutrement. Egg nog was unavailable so limped along with eclectic alternate tippleage. Traditions here vary a bit from US/Canada and we're going with the flow, but draw the line at Vegemite. It's nasty and can't possibly be food.

Now spending the day catching up on emails and otherwise brushing up on carefully chosen deadly sins.

Merry Christmas/Hanukkah/New Year/other-favored-celebratory-occasion to everyone. Hope you've had as interesting a year as Jan & I and have an even more engaging 2012.

"May you live in interesting times" - Chinese Curse

This is often followed by two other imprecations of escalating severity: "May you come to the attention of those in authority" and (my personal favorite) "May your wishes be granted." Sometimes it all works out. Wishing it for you.
