Nice. I was trying to link one of those but the picture URL wouldn't load.
Wouldn't that be more appropriate for one of our other losing seasons?
I wondered if people would think it looked like a psych office chair... Google was giving me cats and scantily clad people lounging and quite frankly it was more effort than I wanted to put in and that was the chair that came up.
Pallotuoli is Finnish design. We'll meet at the agora.
Gang deciding to invade at the end of November, only in the beginning of winter.
Rain in December with snow and ice on the ground is stupid.
Is that Conan?

In the end of Finnish epic Kalevala (mythical, traditional stories collected from among the Finnish people in the 19th century by Elias LÃ¶nnrÃ¶th) Marjatta is inpregnated by a klingonberry. Born in a stable, guided by a star the newborn youngster was to assume the role of king of Karelia, guardian of all. The eternal sage VÃ¤inÃ¤mÃ¶inen, the old and faithful wisdom-singer said to let time pass, a day go, another come, VÃ¤inÃ¤mÃ¶inen will be needed once more, watched upon, missed upon, as the one who forges new Sampo, anews plays, brings new moon, as releaser of a new day when there is no moon, no sun and no free joy.
As the years passed VÃ¤inÃ¤mÃ¶inen
Recognized his waning powers,
Sang his farewell song to Northland,
To the people of VÃ¤inÃ¶lÃ¤;
Sang himself a boat of copper,
Beautiful his bark of magic;
At the helm sat the magician,
Sat the ancient wisdom-singer.
Westward, westward, sailed the hero
O'er the blue-back of the waters,
Singing as he left VÃ¤inÃ¶lÃ¤,
This his plaintive song and echo:
"Suns may rise and set in Suomi,
Rise and set for generations,
When the North will learn my teachings,
Will recall my wisdom-sayings,
Hungry for the true religion.
Then will Suomi need my coming,
Watch for me at dawn of morning,
That I may bring back the Sampo,
Bring anew the kantele of joyance,
Bring again the golden moonlight,
Bring again the silver sunshine,
Peace and plenty to the Northland."
Thus the ancient VÃ¤inÃ¤mÃ¶inen,
In his copper-banded vessel,
Left his tribe in Kalevala,
Sailing o'er the rolling billows,
Sailing through the azure vapors,
Sailing through the dusk of evening,
Sailing to the fiery sunset,
To the higher-landed regions,
To the lower verge of heaven;
Quickly gained the far horizon,
Gained the purple-colored harbor.
There his bark be firmly anchored,
Rested in his boat of copper;
But be left his kantele of magic,
Left his songs and wisdom-sayings,
To the lasting joy of Suomi.

Klingonberry jam is soooo good. Imagine getting impregnated by one. So lucky.
I can't help but look at the name of that thing, contemplate other desserts to be made with such, and immediately think "IT IS A GOOD DAY TO PIE".
I blame my geek parents.
watching the Craig Sager memorial on NBA TV...some great memories and great insight to how great of a man he is
Danny and Erika are spending the Christmas time apart. Iso-D is with his ex-wife and tango queen Erika with her parents.
Everyone acquired their Christmas hams already? Do you prefer them with mustard veil or without?
I'm making lasagna.
We are having pasta with Italian sausage, pecans and butternut squash. Yes I'm serious. And I'm normally a simple, meat-and-potatoes kind of guy, but the pasta dish sounded good.
Mmmmmm! Buon Natale!
If you only knew the power of the thinly cut Christmas ham slices.
Bacon explosion in the morning. It's why the terrorists hate us.
Not going home for Christmas so I'll probably have soup or something.
