if you've never clicked on any of my links, ever ever, please click on the one above! i hope you find it as funny as i did.
explanation: i have been finding it difficult to blog of late because we KILLED OUR COMPUTER last week. it's a long story involving electricity and an espresso machine. we actually have a whole other computer upstairs (the one i'm typing on now), but it's kind of an elderly, slow-movin' guy, and i've never been able to get photos onto my blog up here. also, the room this computer lives in is very cold. the tip of your nose is a little numb after an hour in this room. additionally, while i really have recovered from my nasty flu, my ribcage has been feeling the aftereffects of all that coughing i did. i've been moving slowly, like a very very old woman, or like someone who was beat up in an alley, kicked in the ribs, and left to die.
however, it's a new day! and i am feeling much improved. it's sunny and snowy and christmassy outside. i've baked many many cookies and the first of three varieties of christmas bread (vanocka, the czech anise bread) we traditionally stuff ourselves with on christmas morning (the other two are chocolate bread and almond bread with almond filling inside, mmm).
so, my apologies for silence here and also for that hanukkah picture on the right. i'm aware that hanukkah is now over. i'm going to attempt to replace it with something appropriate for this week, but i'm not sure i can do it until our new computer arrives...
