    Dadblasted Big 12 country - why do they think we want to watch Texas? Duke would be a much better choice.

    I could probably walk with O Come All Ye Faithful - because I always sing the first verse in Latin - even if no one else does.
    AR fans have special words for the TX fight song. "Texas Bite" instead of "Texas Fight." That should give you the general drift.

    I did fine on the first verse. The second and third verses that we sang were totally new to me. We did a total of 5 or 6; the others were familiar. And, of course, the unfamiliar verses came when were processing through the middle of the congregation.

    That would work as well.

    Goody. Something to look forward to. The wind chill in St. Louis is pretty brutal; I had to invest in a longer coat. The coat I bought would be just below knee length on the normal person. On me, it's mid-calf length. That is not necessarily a bad thing.

    I am fairly close to being finished with shopping and haven't even started baking.

    Thanks. The three-way draft was fun!

    It seems to be much easier to get up a string of uninterrupted posts during the basketball game. Of course, I'd rather be watching the game. Darn CBS. They're showing Michigan State here.

    I guess I could put the KU game on - but I am just checking CBS online periodically for a score. I did watch the end of the women's game the other night - OT victory over USC after being down by 17. It was fun.

    BTW, DiK, I finally remembered to check out our handbells. THey have that funky German (I think) name; I can't remember what it is. We played Dobrinksi's arrangement of "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" and an arrangement of "Infant Holy, Infant Lowly" that had "Coventry Carol" as an interlude. Both were pretty nice, even though the Dobrinski piece was complete with her usual random time and key signature changes.

    We're only 49 posts away from the goal! Should we go for 8000?

    Yeah, but then you'd have to watch KU...

    Of course, Michigan State is playing Texas, so they're showing the same game here, DiK.

    Dang. I just checked the scoreboard. We're really whipping Xavier. That would be such fun to watch! Darn CBS!

    I don't think our handbells could handle a Dobrinski piece - too many new ringers. We will be playing "On This Day Earth Shall Ring" tomorrow and then various members will play during hymns and one of the choir pieces. I wanted to be a little more challenged so I talked another ringer into doing some duets with piano. We played last weekend - "Still, Still, Still" and "O, Come All Ye Faithful". They went pretty well and we impressed people with the number of bells played. It was fun. I wish we had a more dedicated choir - people just don't make practice a priority. Very annoying!

    We will be playing for the 5pm Christmas Eve service - it is a piece with bells and narration called "Mary, Joseph, & the Baby". I'm still not sure how many bells I'll end up with - they don't play at the same time so I will probably accumulate a few high and low bells.

Those cookies are the closest I've ever come to replicating the chocolate peppermint Pop Tarts in flavor. Mmmm. It seems appropriate to reference the Pop Tarts today. They did start all this.
    You should have a Winter Solstice ale, too.

    I know but both my sisters went to KU and it is just 45 minutes down the road. I have to at least try to look like I care.

    Best KU story - I went to the NCAA tournament in California a few years ago when Duke played KU. I went with a client, my boss, and another person on KU tickets so I stayed in the KU team hotel. I talked to both Roy "Huckleberry Hound" Williams an d their AD Lew Perkins and let them know I was rooting for Duke. (I saw Perkins at the KU pep rally.) Unfortunately, Duke lost but I stayed for the Sunday game anyway. When I was returning to my room on the 16th floor, two kids in the elevator said to each other that I must be Nick Collison's mom because I was on such a high floor. I thought to myself that I couldn't be Nick Collison's mom - then I did the math and I could have been his mom and would have been out of college when I had him. What a rude awakening.

    It was hectic. I kept losing my place jumping between pages.
