Happy ChristmaHanuKwanzikah – FestivuSaturnalia

Posted on: December 25, 2011

Did I miss anything?

oh yes,  Happy Birthday Sir Isaac Newton!  Also Dionysus and Mithra!  yay, presents and birthday candles all around.

We made latkes (cheese cloth is your friend. as is ventilation), we made Stollen (soak fruit in rum for an hour? bah! try all afternoon!), I totally hearted the geek out love on The Nerdist on BBC last night and will be watching Doctor Who all evening while eating greasy carb filled Chinese food. Oh, and in case you were wondering, Chris Hardwick’s interview with David Tennant was adorable. Also, not the only reason I watched the show. you can listen to the whole thing here

Cuz I’m lighting ye olde Chanukiah I got to open prezzies last week.  Husband and I exchanged mostly gag gifts, and he managed to find what I am now calling the best gift EVAR.  behold, the Frank Lewis book of Crosswords!  A cryptography and crossword building genius, the late Frank Lewis created The Nation crossword every week until shortly before his death. Not for the faint of heart, so far I’ve gotten one clue on the first puzzle. I figure I’ll finish this crossword book sometime around the year 2058. It is teh brainteasing awesome.

and on the subject of polar opposites I’ve been reading M.D. Lachlan’s Fenrir along side Tina Fey’s Bossypants.   I couldn’t get enough of Lachlan’s Wolfsangel, and I’ve a major girl crush on Tina Fey.  and Liz Lemon? totally my workplace role model. Not sure if that’s a good thing or not, but oh well.  Review of Fenrir should go up in a few days, as I haven’t even finished it yet.

the Vintage Science Fiction not a challenge starts next week, and if I’m going to make my goals, I better start reading NOW.  it’s not the books, it’s the business trips. I wonder if the library has any Asimov, Norton, or Heinlein audiobooks?

and just for random fun, here are some random holiday geek out pictures for you:

Christmas tree made of books!

Dalek Snowman!

Happy to you as well!

Just thought you should know that second picture is of a Dalek, not an AT-AT walker…

argggh, evil html captionz. . . working on fixing ‘em.

Ah, such great pics! Merry day after Christmas to you. Sorry I didn’t get over here yesterday.

That crossword puzzle book makes my head hurt just reading about it! :) I’m more of an “easy” crossword puzzle type.

Hope you and yours had a lovely weekend and that you enjoy these final days of 2011.

Fun, fun pictures! I had seen that book tree recently on someone else’s blog and just loved it!

Love the book tree – is it just me or does that tree actually remind you of the Dalek in picture No.2?
Lynn :D

some of the books reviewed here were free ARCs supplied by publishers/authors/other groups. Some of the books here I got from the library. the rest I *gasp!* actually paid for. I'll do my best to let you know what's what.
