Squeaky Glitchmas and bear night
(e:flacidness) please do not make this face!
Bear night. We hung out with Tyler, and Jon and Dale who we run into once a month. This guy at Funky Monkey reeeeeally wanted to take pictures of (e:paul), (e:terry) and I. Nackt or otherwise.

Somehow once again I managed to fit two dinners in one day, and one stomach. I wish we could somehow combine them.
it was crazy warm outside so we rode our bikes to (e:paul)'s parents. gotta burn dessert beforehand.
I stayed there for a few hours and had the amazing risotto and candied yams. Paul made a tasty cranberry sauce with grapefruit and cloves.
Then I sped over to my parents for round two. My mom managed a falafel tukey stuffed with vegetarian stuffing complete with drumsticks! Pinterest worthy, mom. Thanks.
We had the usual relatives and dogs over and 10 different pies. =7 too bad there's no gluttonous emoji.
At the end of the night, Paul and Terry stopped over to say hi to my family. Paul managed to make a few minutes before he started going full allergic. (he did have to bike home to black Friday with (e:mike).) pretty good day!

Festivus for the rest of us
We had calzones, salad, a giant snickers, and baked apples.
The best part is probably the airing of grievances, where basically everyone gets
to yell at each other for minor issues. I feel like it's a real family bonding experience.

Cinco de Mayo
Instead we had cheesy nachoes and salsa at home. Just as good. (e:paul) even got home earlyish.

We headed to the main area outside of the Central Terminal. Note for the future: you probably can find a wrist band in the trash heap/ground. I guess it's for the Central Terminal so maybe a good cause?
Although it came up on google - Paul didn't think so - (e:paul,38839)
The polka band was awesome in a weird way. I can't picture dancing to that music any other time but it was a good time. (e:Paul) got hit on by a married man, we found a ground beer, the weather was perfect and the crowd was so sloppy-energetic.
It does seem a little weird that the whole region flocks to the city's most forgotten neighborhood just once a year to get loud and drunk, and then never comes back. I wonder how the residents feel about it?
Afterwards Emily left but we all headed to DBGB's. The was free food but it was only sausage and pasta - blech. We danced a little more before walking home actually just at midnight so I got to sleep.
Prost! (don't know what poles say)
The only polish person got pussy willowed

I want to post this one picture of Lindsay but she'd kill me.

St. Patrick's day
Update: We started somewhat early around 12 after getting decked out in green. I wore (e:paul)'s green zunfthosen .
We got to the parade but weren't actually there too long. Everyone brought St. Patrick's day to the roof for a bit where it got a little cray. Then we came home and stuffed our faces with La Nova. (e:paul) and I took a 5 hour nap before I got back up with a second wind. (e:terry) on the otherhand powered through the whole day. All in all an amazing St. Patrick's day.
Breakfast of champions.
Halloween costume for next year?

Heidi after she unzipped the zunfthosen at the parade... I forgot how I was wearing them.
Union floats - a good fuck you to the people that were booing them. You just wish you had a union, I know I do.

The spoon came out for Mike of course

The next day, (e:paul) and (e:terry) and I woke up and exchanged gifts. Paul got me a bunch of fancy peanut/almond/cashew butters, and Terry got me a cheese club subscription and these awesome red corduroys. I am going to die of clogged arteries looking good. I got Terry some new paddles for the canoe (that are long enough for us to use), and Paul a fox handled serving tray plus a dog bed to lay in front of the fire.
After that I went to my parents house again to do Christmas there. My mom gave us and all the siblings a really cute photo frame with these old postcards of Buffalo in them. We have the Peace Bridge, city hall and an aerial of downtown.
I also got this 90's puffy ski vest that I love. We napped and ate the rest of the day before watching Silver Linings Playbook for the 10th time. I feel ridiculously full right now. I'm back home and the living room smells so bad right now. I called Sarah and we are catching up on the phone a bit before bed.

Why is someone who spent 18 months slogging around a base, or drone bombing random Pakistanis considered a hero, to be protecting our freedoms, to be serving our country? Who in this country are they actually serving, and what are they actually protecting us from? When people use that kind of language they expect that it makes the military exempt from any sort of criticism, disconnected from what they actually do. I don't see what invading Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Libya, or Somalia did to protect or serve the US. I don't see why we should be proud that $682 billion will be spent this year on an army when our Congress claims we can't afford food stamps, basic research or healthcare. Obligatory cost of war link
I know the military is an employer of last resort for many, making it difficult to blame the soldiers on the ground. But they still choose to take part in a unit that instigates rather than defends. This isn't to say there is no good in the military, or those in it haven't done good where they're deployed - I just don't think signing up for a fighting force is a job worthy of the language and reverence that it currently gets. There are so many people in this country struggling to make it a better place through service and self-sacrifice - we could be celebrating them in the name of peace instead.
Maybe I am jealous of everyone who got off of work.
