Christmas MixMania Playlist, and crawdads.

Here is my Christmas MixMania playlist. Sorta. My Windows Media playlists crashed a few days after I burned and sent the cd’s, so I’m playing this by ear.

Playing it by ear. Music. Honestly, I'm so witty. I do not remember where one disk stops and another begins, either, so sweet person who got my cd's: I'm sorry.

This list is mostly correct, but I know there are mistakes. I’m so sorry. I've left songs out and I've included songs that are perhaps not on the cd's.

I'll do better next go-round. Just say the word, Jim; I'm your obedient shadow.

My son has taken over the kitchen tonight; he's making an appetizer for tomorrow's family reunion. He told me the name of it, but I've forgotten. But it consists of rice, minced garlic and onions, ground beef, yogurt, a dash of most of the spices in my pantry, and some fresh crawdads. That's right, you heard me. Crawdads. All wrapped in grape leaves and steamed. And it will probably be absolutely delicious. This is what happens when you send your son to a college that has a school of culinary arts attached to it.

Oh, HE didn't have any culinary arts classes. He just dated several women who did, and he partook of their education as well as his own. And tomorrow at Mom's house, we will all enjoy his artistic efforts.

I can't wait to see Mom's face when she hears the word 'crawdad.' Zappa hasn't decided whether to tell her up front, or to wait till after she takes a bite.

I voted for 'after' but I think it's only because I still hold a little grudge about that slice of braunschweiger she made me eat before I could leave the table and go out and play when I was eight.

Not that I would remember such a small thing as that.

Oh joy, it's Christmas Eve! Well actually no. Actually, it's Christmas Day! We're still cooking and baking and planning, though; so there's still preparation fun to be had.

And now I'll go help Zappa roll the crawdads in the grape leaves.
