Marissa Lingen

This is the worst vertigo day I've had all year.

Tell me something good, please?

I just found a pair of jeans that fits perfectly and are flattering. Huzzah!

I just noticed that a friend's Christmas card from last year featured cardinals. And I happen to have cardinal address stickers and seals on hand, courtesy of a nature society. With the pencil sharpener stamp I just put on the envelope of her card, they add to the minor yet real satisfaction of preparing something with a little extra person-specific attention.

Also, the siblings-in-law and their sprogs sent me Periodic Tales.

And speaking of elements: finding these earrings for the niece pleased me greatly.

In addition to the wonderful happy bit of news I already mentioned in the reply to aamcnamara:

I have seen and enjoyed Hugo; received my nearly-final Arisia panel schedule which has only one morning panel (last year: three) and requires me to moderate only two (last year: five); acquired a new shiny toy as a gift from my employer; had other pleasant employer-related things happen; and had an amusing misunderstanding of an email subject line (mentioned over on G+).

I got Charlie a smallish xmas decoration that's a hollow pointy "tree" made of ornaments. He immediately stuck it onto his short arm and started making "pow pow pow" noises with it.

Your son is a cyborg with gun attachment.

That is so cool.

I am roasting a boneless leg of lamb, which we will have with creamer potatoes and peas, and then watch Being John Malkovich, and Soren's physical therapy is going very well.

My 11-yr-old son thinks Seanan McGuire is the best author ever.

Also, I just bought him an ocarina for Christmas (I had to look up what it was).

There, that's two good things! Feel better, hope it eases up a little.

I have tried a new cookie recipe on my usual test subjects (a/k/a, anyone who walks into my kitchen) and have been informed that this one is a keeper. http://smittenkitchen.com/2011/12/nutmeg-maple-butter-cookies/. Personally, I still think last year's double ginger shortbread were far superior in texture, but who's to argue with the demands of one's housemates?

I thought about trying those, too! Perhaps next year.

By which I mean 2012 in general, not Christmas 2012.

I have a new KitchenAid mixer and there will be apricot pinwheels, butter tarts, and my shortbread nut bars tomorrow.

A brand new good thing just happened. My persnickety oven, which likes to vary its temperature wildly by 100+ degrees over a cooking cycle, held a steady temp long enough for me to bake three batches of cookies for work tomorrow.
I hope your evening/morning is full of minor odd little triumphs. And cartoons.

A friend of mine is starting up a Pathfinder game, and I have a delightful concept for a con-artist-type rogue.

I just made mini-Nutella cupcakes with only three ingredients (the recipe calls for four, but I couldn't find chopped--or whole--hazelnuts for anything at the store), and they turned out fantastic!

Oh, and I have a new Kobo ereader (the old one having not been working properly), so now I can set ebooks to the largest font size and read without massive strain and headaches!

I might have a story for the Dell Award contest.

Also just went to go see Sherlock Holmes with friends and enjoyed myself.

I spent the evening with the cutest baby in Nashville. He was fascinated by my shoes and tried to gnaw on my leg.
