Most of this "happy new year" crap will be over and done with.

Not forgetting Chinese New Year, Jan 28.
Any Asian colleges/friends you know get to hit you with "Happy new Years" again in less than 1 month. Often disguised as "gong xi fa cai" (mandarin) or "gong hey fat choi" (cantonese)"
gong xi, gong hey, bro
Sin tack ear lol
Pressing the any key may be continuate
For a number of years, we have gathered at a friend's place for a bonfire and fireworks. The bonfire is all of the branches that have fallen from trees for the past year and the Christmas tree.
For whatever reason, we were not able to get together at the end of 2015.
Last night, we had 2 years of branches and two Christmas trees in the pile. Excellent fire! A branch 20 feet off the ground, directly above the bonfire, starting burning and maintained an ember for 30 minutes or so.
The bonfire where I was was lit by some guys who threw wood and the Christmas tree on it. Then two couches.
Then came the cushions, then mattresses, some chairs, a bed...
I think someone cancelled their contents insurance
I tend to name the dangerous things in my kitchen - dunno why, but I do - so I have Maddy the Mandolin, and Freddy the Delicatessen Meat Slicer (also known as "Mr Krueger").
So part of my Christmas present was a deep fat fryer: a big DFF, it's industrial and holds 8l of oil. I wanted a 6l one, but they accidently sent me a bigger jobbie and said "keep it if you want, for the same price" when I phoned. And since it has a more powerful heater and a better temperature range, I went for it. And I called it Billy after Billy Bunter, the Fat Owl of the Remove.
So I used it last night to make Heston Blumenthal's Triple Cooked Chips[^] - and damn good they are too - so I emptied it today and was cleaning it out when she says "I'm surprised you didn't call it Stephen".
Damn! That's soooo much better than Billy.
Ok. Rename the kitchen equipment: "Freddy" and "Stephen".
Wish I'd thought of that...
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
