Here's a quick note to wish you all a Merry Christmas! This Christmas season has been really busy for me, but mainly with things unrelated to Christmas. The heavy snow we've had has taken up some free time by providing me ample opportunities for shoveling. Work has been thick with tasks. I just finished up a project right at 5 last night before heading for the second dinner we've had with Jen's family.
On Monday, my co-worker Jody and I went out to try Bombay Bowl, which is a Chipotle-style take on Indian food. It was quite good, but the real surprise is that a photographer for the New York Times was there and took our pictures as we grabbed a bowl of curry chicken with garbanzos and mint chutney. So, I may be showing up in the Times' Food section here soon.
Later that night it was snowing and I made the mistake of taking my normal route, which involves a relatively steep side street. I slid a bit when stopping, but came to a stop safely. The guy behind me didn't. There was no real damage to my car, except a little rubber bit popped off. I can glue it back on. I told the guy not to worry about it and wished him a Merry Christmas. I've had grace extended to me in bumper-related incidents, so it feels good to do the same.
Okay, the cinnamon rolls are ready for tomorrow, but the car is waiting to be packed and we need to fit some lunch in here too. Merry Christmas!
