    @Struang I hadn't heard of him before, but that's a pretty cool story now that I've looked it up. Guess he was one well-travelled corporal.

    On a related note, I learned while serving in Korea that all the ROK military working dogs are given the rank of staff sergeant. This is supposedly so that their conscripts, who top out at sergeant, can always be charged with striking a superior if they abuse the dogs.

    Hey boozers, I’m going to need your assistance. Dave’s work Christmas party is tonight. Please start planning now for lots of witty repartee on this thread to keep us amused. I’m on calorie restriction at the moment, and Dave doesn’t drink, so we’ll have no cocktails to get us through the evening. Plan now, 6:30-10::00 central time tonight. <3 Ho-Ho-Ho

    Not even there yet and already reconsidering the no booze thing. Might be safer for everyone if I go ahead with boozing and do extra swim/trainer time this weekend.

    @M_Ware , for you and Dave. From the web:
    It's odd that Americans have to buy Christmas trees. In Canada we just decorate one of the pines growing in the living room.

    Now I'm drinking some red wine.
    Earlier tonight, I was ready to ride the trainer; 2nd floor apartment, I had the window all the way open and it's about 25 degrees (something below 0 Celsius). I was sitting by the window, firing up trainerroad on my phone.
    The landlord came home, and I heard her say to her husband, "hey, hey look! They've got their window all the way open! What are they doing!?".
    She obviously didn't know I was there or what I was about to do. She sounded like the neighbor on Bewitched when she yelled to her husband.
    It's a funnier story if I could tell it to y'all in a bar.

    Unibrow brewery is brewing up some Belgians for Trader Joe’s. If it’s half as good as la fun du monde, it’ll be worth every bit of the $6 price.

    I thought a lot of those beers were regional releases. Are these going to be international? I know they brewed a few at Octopi in Wisconsin and those didnt make it far outside of the midwest, definitely not outside the US. They are bigger tho. Might make it further. Will have to investigate

    @College_Tri I dunno. But you’re in Chicago, so I’m sure you can get the two I found at my local TJ’s. Says they’re brewed in NY, so def not just regional. But I don’t know how far across the nation these will make it.

    (Saturday) Boozing open call: I have a few of you on my short list thanks to internet stalking and also @ItsShug abusing his Secret Santa ringleader powers by sharing personal information but if anyone wants homemade dog treat goodness shipped to you, please let me know.

    Maybe more relevant in "Let's See Your Critters" but these treats are being made with a hearty combo of both love and wine so... shoot me a message!

    Merry Christmas Boozers....the boozing has started early this Friday. Rum cake is in the oven right now. Hot spiced wine can't be far behind. I have today off but Dave has to work. Day drinking might be happening sooner rather than later. On second thought I need to put in some trainer time. WTF weather says this...no joke, so not going to the pool today. Paging @James Lange

    If we were (apologies to @Kelly O'Mara) having a TriRoost Christmas party, what would you be bringing for treats, (bonus points for replies with recipes)?

    I'm guessing @ItsShug would bring some amazing mustard sauce and something from the smoker, @Tad_Machrowicz would be there with doughnuts, @kjrunnin would arrive with a nice bottle wine and some delectable vegan concoction, @ellsworth53t 's wife would also be whipping up some vegan awesomeness, @idking90 and @College_Tri would be there with beer and chips, @HSeeley14 and @_MurMan would bring something fancy, (Sean, possibly some Redskins' leftovers), @Matt, @Martin, and @Craig D would all bring poutine (right?), and by the same token @simonsen77 would bring something peach, @Jennifer Post would bring a PNW specialty like salmon dip, @wchevron would bring leftovers from whatever holiday soiree he's currently hiding from in his basement.

    Everyone chime in with your favorite holiday treat! @Johns622 what's your favorite? @FastCat1107 would you bring BBQ or Moravian ginger cookies? Would @maggieru bring beignets or maybe something from a trendy Boulder bakery? Do @balsdorf and @KHilgendorf cook or would they bring astounding libations? Did @BW_Tri pack some wassail to bring along?

    No I'm not boozing, yes I have been baking treats for the neighbors all day while listening to podcasts.

    No poutine. However Nanaimo bars are like crack cocaine this time of year. Mocha and Kahlua are fantastic. My wife won't put them out until the last minute and then I get the "look". I'd crawl a mile on broken glass just to lick the crumbs off the plate.

    I'd bring homemade chocolate chip cookies or eclairs. I hate cooking but enjoy baking.

    Just finishing installing a mini fridge in the basement for myself when I'm hiding from the teenagers.
