Second, we spent yesterday driving around with my mom hitting up local Polish markets. I have almost 10 lbs of polish sausage, both fresh and smoked, which we will be carrying back to ABQ with us on Friday. I also bought a whole bunch of pierogi. We'll be having a Polish feast on Christmas Eve! I have also never seen such an assortment of vodkas before in my life! We Pollacks sure love our alky! And the cat's already out of the bag, but we'll be bringing some kishka back to our friend chucklemagne in ABQ.
Third, Kitty and I will be heading up to the Westin today to have dinner with some of the MFF staff to check out the hotel and hopefully get a look at the new con suite. Drop me hints as to what folks would like to see next year in terms of food. I had already suggested salmon to go with the Alaska theme, but I heard there was some drama regarding salmon in the past. I'll have to get the story.
Finally, I took some pics at Brookfield Zoo last week and never had the time to post them. So here you go. Let's start out with a pic of the birthday girl.
Yawning baboon. Would make a good *lol* pic with a caption "STFU!"
Brown bear. He had just gotten out of the pool

I do believe he's flirting with me! *grins*

The sloth bears were having a nice play fight when we arrived
Too bad I wasn't wearing Nevada
One more pic of my Kitty who's pretending she's a wolf. *lol* Furries.
