I've been delinquent of late. Bad cold and preparations for the Dept Christmas party at my house kept me busy. And finals, with grading to commence today.
So, by way of summary, Friday night I attended the annual Scandinavian Christmas party at Michael & Doug's. And ate lutefisk for the first time - which is definitely going on my "50 New Things" list because, not to insult my hosts, but it was aweful. Not the taste, the consistency. Comparable to snot. Them Norwegians musta been pretty hungry to eat that stuff. It's codfish soaked in lye - yep, tastes as good as it sounds. Blech.
Michael also introduced the St. Lucy crown to the festivities (since it was her feast day) which is documented below (I took the pictures with my phone, not so good I'm afraid). We all had to wear it for a time, and were supposed to sing a song, do a little dance, and/or tell a story while donning the crown. Only Max cooperated (last picture).
