    got a pair of tights in the mail. the gift note just says "from a secret satan" so thank you whoever bought me them i definitely can and will use them to stay warm thank you

    Someone really missed a chance to say "From Secret Satin" here, and we should shame them for it.

    Side note, in case anyone wants to get some further monstering of saintees on (This is not a beg, just a heads up!), the Steam Winter Sale has just gone live. Now you can affordably crush people under the weight of their backlogs!

    Good Grief.

    Apperntly when Saint @Jedoc is your gifter, Giftmas never ever stops.

    I've just received copies of the White Numen Tarot deck, the Modern Witch Tarot Journal, and also a handsome red velvet bag for storing a deck inside. And, i am told, i'm going to be getting The Citadel Oracle Deck limited edition, which doesn't come out until April, so consider this a premeptive "What the fuck, thank you so much Jedoc"

    Also again thanks to @MegaMan001 for the second copy of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat - I'm seriously overjoyed to get to have a gift to pass on to a friend who I think will really aprpeciate it, @Raijin Quickfoot for organizing this all (You classy fuck), and @lonelyahava who's just the best imp.

    Picture of a whole chunk of the loot. Not seen: me going omg wtf bbq at things.

    (PS, you stil lshouldnt trust Jedoc with tracking information - i was told December the 29th for some of this, and it's the 23rd here. Just wildly inaccurate, Jedoc. Shaking my head!

    I didn't know if he'd want me to specifically call him out here but 3cl1ps3 sent my his gently used rancilio rocky coffee grinder

    It owns and it's built like a tank and grinds my coffee really evenly!

    Thanks again 3cl1ps3!

    Gonna grind so much coffee in this

    I'll post a good picture of it in my coffee station when I get my coffee station a little scrubbed down tomorrow though. I have to dial it in first because I spurted espresso all over the counter top earlier tonight lol.

    That is pretty cool

    If I were in better shape I'd have to get a stick and find a class for it because it also seems like a fun way to get some exercise and a decently practical self defense skill

    Here's my coffee station with the new grinder in it.
    9pvmqnc0w03f.jpg

    Yes I know I need to clean the steam wand haha

    Also still getting some channeling around the edges of the puck with the new workflow but I'm almost out of coffee to dial in so it'll probably have to wait to January to get much more use.

    Problem is the glass I'm dosing my ground coffee into is too narrow actually and leaves the edges of the portafilter a lot thinner on coffee than the center so it comes out faster with less resistance at the edges. I pulled a double just now in like 20 seconds so it was pretty sour and under extracted.

    Not a problem with the grinder at all. Just my workflow around it.

    oh cool! i'm learning doyle style like the video i posted, so i don't know much about antrim yet. i know it's one-handed (as far as holding the shillelagh) and i think incorporates more from fencing and swordfighting whereas doyle is two-handed and incorporates more from boxing

    that's so cool though i hope you like it!!

    @MegaMan001 thank you so much for the second copy of SAFH again - I ended up able to gift it to my friend on Christmas day itself, and she was very chuffed. Which given I wouldn't have otherwise been able to do something for her, was lovely

    So yay! serendipity!

    Christmas is over!

    We’ve probably reached the end of the gifting this year and it was a great one!

    Thank you to everyone who gave their time and money and love to help make someone’s Christmas a little better.

    You’ve all helped my holidays be amazing just by being you and I love you all for it!

    Can’t wait for next year! I’m somehow blown away by the generosity of this place every single year.

    I'll say yes to both (and literally told my wife that I wished I got LEGO for Christmas while I let my kid put his together 😂).

    BUT I already received the gift of a saint and don't want to ask for something that someone else could use...

    So the beans I had were to old to dial in the grinder that 3cl1ps3 sent me so I got some newer beans which might actually be a little fresh yet to be trying to dial in for espresso because they were roasted on the 30th and are giving me the opposite issue I was having where I am kinda choking my espresso machine.

    So far is looking like I'll be grinding them at around click number 4 through 6 on this grinder but I just choked my machine with about 2 shot of coffee so I'm going to give it a couple days and try again but even the choking coffee was starting to taste really good so progress!

    I have discovered this grinder is easier to just eyeball the amount of coffee going into the basket also and get to too about 18 grams per dose that way. Because the partical sizes are more uniform than my old grinder. So if I just go slightly over the top of the basket it's like 18g on the dot.

    LEGO COMPLETE

    First model I built according to instructions in... a decade? The last one was the Mindstorm NXT, OG.

    Thank you, @Ladybug2332 . It was fun to build, and the pullback mechanic is cool to see in action. It's a nice reminder that, even in these changing times, physics still apply the same.

    Raijin performs a ritual twice a year to bind Santa to his will: a branch of holly, a sprig of mistletoe, a glass of milk and two cookies in a pentagram around a fir tree. That does the summoning. What does the binding is cutting the milk half-and-half with whiskey.

    Wait, I can fix it! If I destroy the servers the Penny-Arcade Forums are hosted on, Santa can't ever find out.
