We Ate the Roast Beast

Well, it was actually a duck, but as we watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas after our Christmas Eve dinner, this sounds better. This was a reprise of our post-Thanksgiving dinner: duck with honey-garlic-ginger marinade, mushrooms sauteed in Worcestershire sauce, stuffing, corn, and biscuits. Later, Lisa made whipped cream and we ate one of the spotted dicks we bought at Cost Plus a while back. It was overall an excellent meal, but we definitely had to take a long walk (down to the Fernley Nugget casino, then through the neighborhoods on the way back to look at the decorated houses), but that was okay, too. The nights have been less cold lately (still below freezing), and Lisa won $1.20 on the slot machine at the casino to boot.

This afternoon, we have a reservation at Orozko at the Sparks Nugget for Christmas dinner. Otherwise, I've been taking things easy for my holiday. Although my conscience is nagging away at me about not getting the SMOFCon videos posted. I have at least labeled what each of them is and have gotten rid of the bits and pieces of non-presentations. I'm considering simply posting the otherwise un-edited files (one per presentation) without trying to edit them or add titles. Given how awful the light was (kept low so people could use the data projector for presentations), I'm not sure it's necessarily worth trying to improve the videos.
