Pyeglow #pyewacket (at North Beach)
Let’s see… What has been up to since Cheeto (Justin) brought our Christmas tree over?
I got my invite to the private beta for Little big planet 2!
Poor Pyewacket hasn’t been feeling very well lately – he was logy and seems to be working on a great big hairball. BHK is getting some meds for him today – hopefully he’ll be feeling better soon.
I was saddened to hear that Dr. D is now in assisted care – my best thoughts are going to his family.
Saturday was BHK’s crafts / holiday party – just enough people arrived to fill every seat in the house. At the most critical of mass, I went into retreat – hit the man-cave and worked on the computer in there for a bit. Amongst the guests were Amy R., Holly, In-laws, Mandy, Tara and Van (in alphabetical order, no less!) – There was more food than we could eat for a week, and the guests brought food too, despite our best entreaties. I fiddled with Goldeneye: Source and HIS (Heroes in the Sky) – I much preferred the former to the latter.
Amy R. is the newest fan of Swarm of the Snakehead. Totally unrelated – Human Centipede is now availabe for netflix streaming. (I do not think I’ll bother with it, though, unless it’s to distress BHK)
Quite a few passes by “Santa” and his pickup truck… has a lit up Reindeer and Santa dangling from the vehicle… and has been doing orbits around our town more than once or twice.
Van stayed for a bit after closeup – he had never played Catan before, but that didn’t stop him from winning against us handily.
Sunday, we rested up most of the morning, but the in-laws hijacked us to go to Men’s day at Maerten’s Jewelry… I snuck over to Play’n’trade to see what was up – 3 used games for 2 wasn’t a bad deal, but I’m still pretty well stocked for toys on both the wii and the ps3. I did look for family game night, seeing as James had mentioned it, and BHK loves to do boardgames – Catan on the ps3, or anything on Yucata.de is her vibe.
Looking at the archives… looks like Pye and the tree are quite the habit this time of year.

9 years ago – nice dreams, flesh eating robots, wacky day, SOP
Dreamt last night that we were under attack by folks of the Winnebago tribe – they wanted to steal the Love Cube.
Showered while singing “Mr. Custer“.. no doubt a result of the aforementioned dream-stuff.
Last night went by like a blur. Got home, ordered pizza, BHK fell asleep on the couch.. I rudely awakened her, and we went to bedski. I awakened at 5 this morning, and headed off to work – without my wallet. Thankfully, I have tasty leftover dindin from the night before last. Brussels Sprouts, tasty rice and quorn cutlet.
NJR’s last day at work is tomorrow – He’s a good guy – I’d take him out for a drink with the guys if we didn’t have so many things going on. Hopefully he’ll be back when he’s between acting gigs – but for now, he’s off to Naples, FL.
I’m really digging the cooler weather – I can feel Christmas around the corner, and snow somewhen after that. There’s a good vibe walking to work from the metro in a bracing chill, wrapped in a homemade scarf.
Newt and Pye have been enjoying a nice bit of fun now that the leaves are spending more time being whirled about in the wind rather than stuck to branches – Newt had pretty much laid claim to the window ledge behind BHK’s work station upstairs… but now, Pye has taken to queuing up behind Newt for a spot to watch the leafy fallout. Later Newt got his seat back and Pye was on top of him to get another turn….at one point Newt started to fall asleep and look away and Pye gave him a healthy nudge in the head to remind him that someone else was waiting for a turn.

Falafel salad! yum!
Today should be Pye day, in honor of Pyewacket as well as the Irrational number and circular dessert! Pye couldn’t care less, as long as he has a warm lap.

Nice Doctor Blasphemy reference in the riddler opening of Brave & the bold. “a bat divided” – Firestorm and a Triplicate Batman made for a fun twist, too.

First time in 30 years that the post office hasn’t delivered mail (from here to DC anyhow).
For my own future swift access –
Eh, This is downright pleasant compared to a hurricane. Sure, the snow is two feet deep at the non-drifted points (as tall as me at the high end) – but we still have power and heat. BHK has shoveled a tunnel over to the Naille’s next door – I’m opting to stay inside with a pair of sweats on, and a couple of kitties to keep me warm while I type.

Newton and Pye love seeing all the flakes dropping from the sky.
in-laws skidded over for pancake breakfast, and I played a little Left 4 Dead while tiles got shifted.
William and Dylan came by in time for a slice of BHK’s homemade apple pie – I slipped and hit the ground knees first bringing a slice to the neighbor (bruised, but the pie was safe!)
Later, the Nailles and Phil next door came over and we played a little What’s Yours Like (BHK won by a hair)

Today, I’m feeling a bit worse for wear – these antibiotics are tearing BHK and my guts up.

I dreamt that Pye and Newton were horseshoe crabs, but still had their kitty tails…. somehow they could climb walls with their little hairy crab legs.
