As was mentioned below, it was the ArcaMax Christmas party last night. (Yeah, click and see what your manga-ka does for a living.) It's the first time I've ever had a five-course dinner.

Menu was (I think):

SOUP: Minestrone

SALAD: Salad with raspberry vinaigrette

SORBET: ... I mean, seriously.

MAIN COURSE: Steak and shrimp with wild mushroom risotto, asparagus, and carrots with something interesting done to them. I managed to shoot a piece of red pepper from the shrimp skewer into the corner behind me. Go Kara.

DESSERT: Some sort of puff pastry with three types of filling (raspberry, lemon, pistachio) and icing and a raspberry on top. I'm pretty sure I'm the only one there who not only liked it, but thought it was one of the most awesome desserts I've ever had.

I'm thinking of doing some sort of Christmas pic(s) for all five comics ... still working on that, but it's a bit busy at the moment. The 'real job' has me doing two big projects now, I've gotta record some lines and write for the paper, and I'm doing some art for the project mentioned below. In addition to the comics and sitting around staring slack-jawed at the television. But even if it's right on Christmas Eve (hey, there's an idea) ... I'm gonna do something.

Finally, I could go on about my rotten night with the squealing heater that died, but it's resolved. Ish.

Ah, another day. SO last night was Kara's Office Christmas Party dinner thing. Quite nice. The wife of the CEO is a very lovely lady. I can't remember if I promised to lend her some DVDs or not.

I do remembr promising to do more baking (need to find a good sugar cookies recipe) and loan Brian Noir. Hmmmm....

I'm also working on a based TCG with stuff from al the comics. I'm hoping to open it up for prejoin around Christmas [Right after I watch [i]Christmas Invasion[/i])

Speaking of which, *squeee* got my [i]Dr Who[/i] boxset! Soooo pretty! It's bigger inside than it is outside!

And trivia: Still guessing series that some characters are based on, my next clue: There are 6 different worlds that the series takes place in.
