Of DVD Atrophy and Pumpkin Soup

I've read that DVDs have a limited shelf life, and I guess it's true. I decided, out of nowhere, to watch 'Little Women' tonight (the 1994 version) (and I cried and cried when Beth died. Just like I always have.) and the end of the movie is unwatchable. It was one of the first DVDs I ever owned. It's so old, there's this whole beginning advert on this wondrous new technology called 'DVD'! There's no menu, no chapter selection, nothing. I wonder how many of my oldest DVDs are disintegrating? [sighs]

Pumpkin soup. That's what we has for Xmas dinner. In the end, I wasn't up to cooking, or eating, a big dinner, so I chucked it all into the freeze. Made a pot of Pumpkin Soup, and with ninjababe's help, managed to finish the truffle tart I'd started on Sunday. Lord! You know what the inside of real chocolate truffle is like? That's what the filling of this tart is like. One piece has done me for chocolate for the rest of the year. I guess most of it will end up going to Nin's work, because I really don't want it to go to waste. But there's no way we'll ever eat it all. That's the problem with making desserts with just the two of us. But, dang, it's good! You even line the crust with melted chocolate before you put in the filling.

Keep your fingers crossed, I think I'm feeling a bit better tonight. The cough seems to have leveled off. Hopefully, I can make it to work tomorrow. I want a do over of the holiday! Thankfully, I have vacation starting on the 5th!

Now, here's to hoping I can sleep tonight. [makes sign to ward off evil eye and cough]
