    Merry Christmas DLP. Hope you've all eaten and drank too much, and that you've had a great day.

    TomChristmas: Got some awesome new flannel shirts. I love them to bits and am already wearing the first one.

    My keyboard tray has pissed me off for the last time, by managing to pull one of the threads in my new shirt loose via splinter or some shit.

    Thankfully it was a fixable thing (mostly), but still.

    You need this thing, I have one. It works on all types of clothing. Great for getting rid of bits of fabric that will turn into a pick, or a lint balls after washing. I use them along the seams of my stuff to trim the extra threads.

    I got Harry Potter trivial pursuit for Christmas, so naturally the rest of the family wanted to play.

    The first game I won on my second round.
    The second game I had to play standard rules, everyone else had to only answer one question, and I won on round two.
    The third game I had to play standard, but they picked which questions to ask, and they only had to answer a single question. And I went on a streak of ten in the first round.

    I am now banned from playing Harry Potter trivial pursuit.

    Filthy casuals.

    I fought an honourable opponent at HP trivia. We just did quickfire questions because otherwise one of us would have won straight away. I lost, but by 53pts to 55. Everyone else was lost in the dust. It was a good game.

    So are the question any good ?
    Does it include stuff about the movies productions or is just canon ?

    From what I've seen, it's just canon. Based on both books and movies (which probably explains the overly specific questions).

    The questions range from very easy (what animals deliver letters and parcels) to slightly more difficult (what is the name of the centaur that saved Harry in the forest in the first year?), to more specific(what does Slughorn call Ron in the three broomsticks after inviting H&Hr to join him for supper?).

    Anyone who's seen trailers should be able to answer the first. Whilst the second is a specific incident, the character appears throughout the rest of the series, so should be easy-ish. And the third is "do you remember a specific throwaway line in the film?".

    Here's a single card, spoilered in case it stretches.

    I'm an uncle!

    My niece is 3 lbs 5 Oz (she's premature birth, obviously) but otherwise hale and hearty. I'm hoping to see her from behind glass today.

    The thing about Christmas is I just don't have room for more stuff. I explained this to my mom, and she responded by gifting me a beer cooler full of fancy cheese and charcuterie. And olives and crackers and grapes and basically everything you would need to make kick ass snacks for at least a month. It's awesome.

    TOMD: How all y'all New Year's going? I'm 11am on January 1st and hoo-boy, did the 2017 demons follow me through. I woke up on an inflatable pink swan with two women I don't know. Ain't doing well, no sir. But my drycleaning is ready to pick up. God bless the Vietnamese, who don't stop for no new years.

    TOMD: reached level 40 in Pokemon Go on the last day of 2017.
    Time to retire.

    Happy new year to all of you. I caught a cold on the last leg of 2017 -- now I'm a snivelling and coughing mess.

    And the same here. I've spent most of the last two days in bed, barely eaten anything since Friday. Happy New Year!

    TOMNYE:

    Everyone is outside in the garden watching fireworks. We decide to let off our own supply. This one dude squats down in the mud, puts down a box of fireworks and about a dozen rockets right next to him, ashes his cigarette onto the box, knocks over the rocket he's trying to light, and sets the whole damn thing on fire.

    Boom.

    They all get fired either into the rickety wooden shed or directly into the ground underneath Mr "I'm good with fireworks, I'm 1/16th Chinese!"

    Nobody died. Some woman holding a baby did get hit with a firework, but it seems like she enjoyed the excuse for moral outrage on Facebook way more than the superficial burn and the baby wasn't hurt.

    I had probably the most sedate NYE I've had in years. Baked a cheesecake for a potluck with some friends, listened to music, then watched the thick of it. Much better than getting my head half knocked off with a surfboard.
