Holiday Potluck

Today was the holiday potluck at work. That meant that I spent part of yesterday evening baking. Specifically, I made chocolate linzer torte, which is easy, but slightly time consuming because the dough has to chill for a half hour before you roll it out and because it bakes for 45 minutes (instead of, say, the 10 minutes cookies would take). Mostly that is time that was not my time, so it wasn’t a big deal. The only annoying part was having to chop almonds because I could only find sliced ones in the store. Anyway, the result was well-received, which is the important part.

Overall, there was a good supply of a wide variety of food, though nothing particularly exciting. The annoying part was the people in the row of cubicles next to mine playing one record (some Sinatra thing and not actually Christmas songs) over and over all day. I behaved well and did not start streaming Tuvan throatsinging or Afropop or the like.
