Oh good heavens, it’s Christmas already! Maybe it’s not the 25th yet, but for all intents and purposes, it’s Christmas on the blogosphere. We are free from you, and you from us, until next Wednesday! At which point you may get the world’s tardiest best of 2007 lists and other smack talk. In the meantime, enjoy your solstice celebrations and get some rest - 2008 is going to be so much harder than this year. Oh, and eat something you’ve never eaten before! Then tell us about it.
[Photo: the seasonal greeting is mashed potatoes with green beans, but what of the meat? We are perplexed, because the skin says mammal (pig), the striations say cured fatty cold water fish, and the flesh tone says…a little of each. We’ve asked around, and have not been able to generate a consensus (maybe because we asked too many Jews). We’re really uncomfortable with the possibility that this is ham, but cannot explain away the brown edges, either. If we were eating this, we’d be inclined to take off the skin and put it on a bagel. Okay, it’s probably ham, but good Lord, the coloring! And how did it get lines like that? Explanations are welcome. (nana_cindy42/flickr)]
