Yesterday was the department potluck. For the price of a couple hours making a few types of scones, I get fed for two days (there's always leftovers) and, in this case, win a fiver to use in the cafeteria later on. I may not know anything about Christmas pop culture, but I apparently I know people who do. Reindeer -- not so much. And ... The O.C. (Who's that aimed at? You know who you are. And we shall *never* speak of this again).
Today was the knitting group with snacks. I had leftover scones to bring (2! 2! 2 parties in one!), and in exchange got lemon hummus, disturbingly yummy parmesan artichoke jalepeno dip, and a lot of complements on the sconage. Just... Wow. I have things to bribe people with! :D
And because I'm getting *myself* in the mood, a repeat from earlier in the year: Alison Krauss/Yo Yo Ma - Wexford Carol: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRW0sPoT5kw
