Snacember 24

For those of you who tuned in a couple of days ago, I reported that my Charming Suitor had popped the big question, to which I said yes, making him my Charming Fiance.  Except, as he has informed me this morning, that while he is delighted to be affianced to me and is looking forward to making me his wife very soon, he has every intention of continuing to woo me for the rest of our lives together, and therefore, Charming Suitor he shall remain here in print!

But make no mistake based on the semantics, the engagement is very on, we are all floaty and schmoopy, and overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from everyone.  To all who commented with your good wishes, we both thank you most humbly.

Now, let me just take this moment to say to you all...


A little holiday message from me....

For those of you who celebrate Christmas, I hope Santa brings you everything you want, that Aunt Martha doesn't get schnockered on the Nog and go all Truth Telling at dinner, and that the turkey is neither dry nor raw.

For those of you who do not celebrate Christmas, I hope you are either doing what I do, and glomming on to someone else's celebration, or simply enjoying a lovely winter's night.

Charming Suitor and I are off to bask in the glow of R&R's tree and hospitality.  There will be Swedish meatballs, and Amazing Goddaughter will open her presents, and Officer K and Charming Suitor will continue their ball-busting bromance, and all will be right with the world.

As a fun little holiday gift, the people at Bon Home sent us a couple of their toys, just in time for holiday entertaining.

The heat and dry dishrack is freaking amazing.  We set it up at Charming Suitor's house, where there is no dishwasher, and it works like a charm!  The dishes were ready to put away with no water spots in about 15 minutes.  He loves it!  Great large capacity, quiet, and most of the parts can go in the dishwasher.  Perfect for those endless wineglasses and good china this time of year.

And we are excited to have this heat lamp for keeping food warm on a buffet, as we have a gaggle coming over on New Year's Day, and the food needs to maintain for a few hours.

Whee!  New toys.  Check them out, I think you'll like them, and while you won't have them in time for Xmas, you might be able to sneak them in for New Year's celebrations if you jump on it now!

I hope all is right in your world as well.

Yours in Good Taste,
The Polymath


  1. I haven't checked in for a couple days so I missed the announcement--MAZEL TOV!!! That is so wonderful and I'm extra happy for you that you love his family so much. You are extremely lucky about that (take it from one who know The Other Way it Could Be!). What a way to end a year!

  2. Merry Everything to you as well! And again, congratulations to both you and Charming fiancee - er, suitor. Have a wonderful holiday!!
