A Takoma Christmas

Season's Greetings from Takoma! Today's rains have washed the smell of Patchoulli out from the air, but a lingering smell of Steel Reserve lingers about from the late-night Go-Go party next door. Since the dog ate my earplugs I'm a bit worn out this morning, although not from drinking too much at the Baltimore Bear Bah Humbug party last night. I knew it wouldn't be like anything out of the John Waters film A Dirty Shame, as none of the Baltimore bears said "GRRRR!" like in the movie. The food was great but I didn't drink all that much. Maybe I was dehydrated, since my water on the rocks with a lemon twist really hit the spot.

From the Post: Tales of Christmas Woe. Also, an interesting story about a Winona, Minnesota couple who purchased a lighthouse at the mouth of the Potomac River. Winona was across the Mississippi from where I grew up.

My aspirations of writing up some D&D stuff during this time haven't been met yet, as taking care of the dog and cat here has taken more time than I thought. While I love dogs I'm still sure that I shouldn't have one quite yet, as it's hard to rush home to walk the dog without wheels. DVDs watched include a re-screening of War of the Worlds, which wasn't as stunning as in the theatre, but seeing all the impressive scenes of Tom Cruise running his ass off with tripods on his back was cool. It's not much for plot, but the destruction, cinematography and CGI are incredible. The 40 Year-Old Virgin was good for a gut laugh, but Saw, while fairly clever, wasn't as disturbing as I expected it to be.
