This is the conversation (sort of) I had with a coworker yesterday over the homemade chocolate in the office.

Coworker: That one with the crunchy stuff in it. I don't know what it is, but it's really good.
Me: It's coconut.
C: Oh, I can't have that. I don't like coconut. *pause* But it was really good. *longer pause* But I don't like coconut.

I've never seen someone verbalize their cognitive dissonance like that. It was like something out of I, Mudd. I half expected her to tilt her head to the side and say, "Norman coordinate."

By the way, my Trekkie sister named her GPS Norman for the coordinating joke. Because of course she did.

I don't actually like Christmas pudding, but this wonderful ode to it makes me almost want to try some.

For some reason, I feel compelled to also share the worst, most terrifying Christmas pudding related thing I have ever seen. Have fun sleeping with this image in your mind.

Found a top comment at Cracked (this article) that was worth reading (honest!). After an article about re-watching the Star Wars films in a different order:

Quote:
I discovered a cool thing of my own that's sorta similar. Here's the order:

Phantom Menace
Schindler's List
The Chronicles of Narnia (Lion, Witch & Wardrobe)
Taken

Watch as Liam Neeson keeps sacrificing himself in various incarnations of a messiah figure and then:
BAM!
Jesus isn't taking your shit anymore

Got my car fixed up today, good as new.


As I was driving back from the garage, I saw a guy on a motorcycle, dressed in a full Santa Clause outfit -- the hat, the beard, the boots; the whole nine yards. He had pulled off the road and was posing for pictures with a young boy. I'm presuming the woman taking the pictures was the boy's mother.

"Santa" was sitting on his motorcycle and the boy was standing in front of him, smiling for the camera. Did the Mother flag down Santa, and stop him to ask for his picture? Was Santa parked at the intersection and inviting people to stop and take his picture?

Whatever the situation was, it was an interesting scene.

I got the best pair of socks ever yesterday. They're by a company from Vermont called Darn Tough(geddit?). They're 58% merino wool and they don't itch. AT ALL. And they're warm. Working outside this winter will be slightly better.
