12/23/2002: The gifting begins

Next Entry
Even though Richard very nicely installed Moveable Type for me a few months ago, I have been a lazy slob and haven't touched it til recently. Transferring all the entries written in Greymatter over was a piece of cake; transferring the preceding year of entries in the same template has taken me the better part of three days. And that doesn't include the full year of entries back when I had no clue what I was doing with html (because I'm just going to leave those alone). The next step is to figure out all the customizable tags in the program and then muddle my way through so I can do the complete switch...but that will probably be a little while longer.

Anyway, the whole point of this little ramble is that I've been busily copying and pasting entries for hours at a stretch, and also reading through some of them as I go. And I stumbled across the entry I'd posted one year ago today - the one that noted that we exchanged our stocking presents with each other on the day before Christmas Eve.

"Ha!" I exclaimed victoriously. Here Richard had been insisting that we'd not done it til Christmas Eve, but I had final proof. My triumph was only slightly dimmed by the fact that earlier in the day Richard had suggested we do the stockings today anyway, but still. It's all in the principle of the thing.


We each got envelopes in the mail today from the Benthic Creatures main office, in which resided certificates for free turkeys. Very large free turkeys. Turkeys about the size one might otherwise feed to a gathering of a dozen or more.

At first glance, one might wonder just what the two of us are going to do with two free turkeys. This is actually a very cool thing, however. Richard had been toying with the idea of trying to cook the Thanksgiving turkey in the Weber grill, but we never had the chance for him to practice. And I came up with all sorts of useful suggestions for things to do to a turkey - suggestions I didn't feel quite right in following when the goal was to provide a turkey to both sides of the family without doing something so radically different that it would no longer resemble the traditional bird. Now that we have access to free turkeys, of course, this means the experimentation can begin!

Tis the season for Holidailies!
