I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

The Christmas we get we deserve

They said there’ll be snow at Christmas
They said there’ll be peace on Earth
But instead it just kept on raining
A veil of tears for the Virgin’s birth
I remember one Christmas morning
A winter’s light and a distant choir
And the peal of a bell and that Christmas Tree smell
And  eyes full of tinsel and fire
They sold me a dream of Christmas
They sold me a Silent Night
And they told me a fairy story
Till I believed in the Israelite
And I believed in Father Christmas
I looked to the sky with excited eyes
Then I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn
And I saw him and through his disguise

I wish you a hopeful Christmas

I wish you a brave New Year
All anguish pain and sadness
Leave your heart and let your road be clear
They said there’d be snow at Christmas
They said there’ll be peace on Earth
Hallelujah Noel be it Heaven or Hell

Pacific Mall!!

Went here today looking for something specific … this place is the fucking greatest!! Love all the shops (booths), the prices, the selection, the activity and atmosphere of the whole Goddamn place!! Not only great selection, choices, etc.  … but un-fucking-believable prices and purchasing practices too!! No receipts, no taxes!! Money talks … and here, “Cash is truly King”!! Fuck the man is what I say!!

“nefariousness thoust be thine name”

Baccala!!

This has always been one of my favourites!! Tony, at my local Italian deli made the fucking best version (potatoes, baccala, married together in a loose tomato sauce (broth) … EVER!! Only on Fridays though, ’cause it was so incredibly special … sadly he moved, closed down too eventually from what I heard, so I had to find other variations, interpretations of the succulent salt cod!! Portuguese salt cod is fucking unbelievable too, nothing to sneeze at, fucking love it!! The preparation process required before even thinking of using it, to cook in a dish, is time consuming, a couple of days at least of soaking, changing water repeatedly, making sure to remove excessive salt in the fish!! So much effort, for such a delicacy … but it’s motherfucking worth it!!

Where do you think Bobby Baccalieri from The Sopranos got his nickname from? Oh, and if you were completely clueless and unaware, please have the cojones to admit self-stupidity, lol!!

Wanna try this one, what a festive holiday dish … Merry Christmas y’all!!

Crunch time!!

Ten more fucking days … much too few considering all I’ve still left to do. Feels like everything falls on my shoulders … did I blog (kvetch) about this last Christmas too? Probably, lol. Truth is that when it’s all said and done … the family gathering, laughing, spending those precious moments together, makes the effort well worth it … and then some!!
