A Quiet Celebration

You know, I don’t care much about partying and fireworks. My perfect RL New Years Eve is a quiet one. Why? Because my puppies are scared of fireworks. So many dogs and cats are scared on New Years Eve but with this as with so many other things, people are selfish and inconsiderate. Also, alcohol and fireworks is a bad combination. I’m sure doctors have better things to do than to patch up someone’s mangled hand after they held the fireworks when showing off. Also, I think fireworks is a huge waste of money.

Find your Japanese Raw Dorayaki sweets at this round of Kustom9 where Cinoe offers the Year-end discourse. Not only decorative food and drink, it also dispenses bento animated food/drink for you and your guests.

In the Hall of the Mountain King

What ought a man to be? Well, my short answer is ‘himself’.

Henrik Ibsen

Ah, my Norway. Norwegian nature and Grieg’s compositions have always gone hand in hand for me. Nothing reminds me more of the mountains at home like ‘I Dovregubbens Hall/In the Hall of the Mountain King’. I can just close my eyes and listen and I’m there.

A Merry Little Christmas

Christmas 2020 is a different kind of Christmas. That doesn’t mean it’s automatically sad, or cancelled, unless you make it so. I hope you’re having a merry little Christmas, wherever you are.
