So instead, tonight kung_fu_monkey and I watched an episode of Twelve Kingdoms, and I made duxelles.
I don't know how to pronounce them, but they sure are yummy.
Also, I like the Christmas lights. I especially like it when cities string simple white lights on bare deciduous trees. Those look so cool. There are a bunch of trees set up like that along Pearl street near 28th in Boulder, with red light spiralling around their trunks.
And at the intersection near our house here in Broomfield, there are two trees done up in plain red and plain blue lights that are exactly the same cool colors as all the instrument lights in my car. So pretty!
