How NOT to deal with New England winters

Man Burns Home Melting Ice With Blowtorch

New Bedford fire officials say a homeowner using a blowtorch to melt ice on his back porch set the home on fire causing up to $30,000 in damage.

Rich stopped by during lunch and joked with MaryAlice about Festivus.  I said that at the holiday party I went to last night, someone was like, "So, Solstice, Christmas, Hannukah, what else are we celebrating?" and Nick (?) said, "Christmuhanukwanzukah," and I said, "Festivus," even though I've never seen that Seinfeld episode nor do I even like Seinfeld.  Relating this conversation reminded me that I had meant to look up when Kwanzaa actually is.

I went to the OSS holiday party around 5.  Because it had been rescheduled from Friday, turnout was much lower than usual.  I know most of the OSS guys, but it's not like we're friends, and I'm no good with small talk anyway, so I mostly stood around.  I started off with a Parrot Bay (passion fruit & mango) and then had a glass of the punch Rey had put together, which was really tasty but after I finished that in the first hour as well (Rey said, "I see you, drinking that like it's water") I said I was done, " 'cause the more I drink, the more I wanna make out with people."  Ramone goes, "get this lady another drink," which, yes, is funny, but as I said after I finished my second glass of punch (which I nursed for about an hour), "There's nobody here who's gonna make out with me, so..."  I'm not really good with that kind of joking around 'cause I'm often not intuitively good at reading the serious-ness level, and I also often don't find it all that fun to engage if it's not actually serious.
