Music video for the week is easily Steam Powered Giraffe "Malfunction". It's a song with meaning, beside being a fabulous track in its own right. (h/t jenn_dolari!)

/u/marshykip very kindly drew me. ^_^

Chris Kluwe outdoes even The Rude Pundit, in this fabulous diatribe, so tragically warranted.

So, I finally became the last person on the planet to buy Kerbal Space Program. ^_^ The latest 66% off sale swung me over. (Of course, at a time when I can't actually take advantage of it, being down at my mother's for Yule, and consequently, reliant on cellular connectivity - specifically, 6GB at full speed, and unlimited thereafter at 256kbps)

And of course, whatever you're celebrating around now, I hope everyone has a wonderful time. ^_^ Here, the duck's coming out of the oven in a bit, with the rather too snug fitting roasting pan now laden down with parsnips (microwaved to prepare them), roast potatoes (where I admittedly cheated and bought pre-prepared ones - a little stupidly, I bought the ones in duck fat, not remembering what they were going to be cooking with =:), brussels, and stuffing (some good sausage meat, a couple extra herbs, and several portabellini chopped up finely). Then there's also some red cabbage that's been microwave simmering away, some carrot batons I'll pop into the micro when it's time to serve, and gravy, which'll be just some granules, boosted with some extra herbs, and - well, I thought a slightly boozy gravy would work well with the duck, and thought Rumbullion might be just the ticket.. oh, well, such a pity that leaves much of the bottle unused. =:) And to go with it, a bottle of 2014 Beyerskloof Pinotage Reserve Selection, which sounded just right to work against such a tasty bird.

[ETA] Et voilà! Oh, yes, that worked. ^_^ It's lacking in artfulness, but not in flavor. =:9
