I asked my daughters to make a cheese ball for Xmas. They gave me this:

Spoiler for no head cheese tho:


Three kinds of cheese, bacon, spring onions, and seasoning.

Definitely will if it's an original pressing and not a re-master. After all:

This was my first sober Christmas in 6 years.

Awesome Christmas this year.

Our traditional party with friends on the 24th was even more awesome, wild and generally ****ed up than ever.
Spent the next day recovering from all that.
Today was our Chrismas dinner at my mom's. A little boring, but chill and with the usual amazing food. At some point I realized that we were listening to Fred Frith (as a sideman, but still) which also made this the musically best Christmas ever. Also found out my mom loves Rodriguez, who was also cool and surprising to listen to with the 'family'.

Mine is either "Embrace the nihilism", or "If it didn't scream when it died then I don't wanna eat it." (Literally my senior quote).

And I regularly remind my children of that. Live as though you are not promised tomorrow ... because you are not.

Been busy as **** lately, but this week should be a bit of a break for me. I had 3 Xmas parties to hit this year, and 2 of them were a good 1-2 hours away, and of course I had to drive everybody. The x-GF's family party was insane. The main family of 4 girls and 3 boys, who all but one have children and grandchildren, so that's approximately 40 people to buy for right there. Crazy. Good thing the x-GF shops for me for all of them. I had our work party, then went to my Dad's for Christmas Day. Lot's a great food, and plenty of good beer and wine, and I played a little Xmas medley on my Ukulele for everyone.

Daughter - Android Tablet, a Bluetooth Speaker Tower, and covered her bills for one month (about $500).

X-GF - New Vacuum (she actually wanted this). She told me she had never had a brand new one before, so this was a bit special for her. *shrug*

Dad - Digital Drawing Tablet. He used to be big into painting murals and such, but hasn't really done any sort of creating in a while. I'm hoping this sparks a new interest in digital creations.

Step-Mom
- A Kindle. She was almost in tears. All her friends have them, but since she never buys things for herself, she never thought about getting one herself.

As for what I got, here's the haul:
  • Martin Backpacker guitar (my daughter got me this, bless her heart)
  • Christmas Carols for Ukulele chord book (the sheet of paper is an email notifying that the actual Black Sabbath for Ukulele chord book is still in processing)
  • Dunlop System 65 Guitar Maintenance Kit (never used any of this, we'll see)
  • Fender Custom Shop Calendar (incredible eye candy)
  • Metal Guitar Man (well, of course)
  • Boss DD-3 (I actually wanted one of these)



I'm just glad things can get back to normal now.

I thought that the vacuum was a way of telling your ex that she sucked. Punny pettiness opportunity squandered.

Also I'm always shocked at the quality of those backpack guitars, the Martins especially.
