I don't know shit about knives, but it's heavy and sharp.

I needed a new pocket knife though. I lose all of mine; which means I'll probably be needing a new one in a month or so.

Bluto - Big chewy, new collar

I give this one a 9. I guess that's a 10 point loss in your world.

Duly noted.

I had a nice Case knife that went missing when I moved to Chattanooga last year.

I got a nice wool coat from a co-worker. For some odd reason I didn't really have a decent coat (just light jackets), so I really appreciated it. I don't know the guy very well but I thought it was a nice gesture.

This was an extremely odd/sad Christmas. It was my first with no parents, and only my second outside of Illinois. I didn't really get much, but I had bought myself some nice things while buying presents for others, so despite the last year being a catastrophe, I'm at peace. I was in a position to do good for others, so I'll take the karma.

Nothing. I took my dad out for dinner in the extra hour I had that was supposed to be a whole day. I gave my daughter cash since she's saving for a car.

I, or my wife rather, got a mandolin as well.

Also got a digital scale, pizza stone(cats managed to break our old one) and a metal scraper thing. I also got a spoon rest in my stocking.

Cleaned up the BB&B wedding registry.

My mother inlaw got me some wine bottle stoppers and a bottle of mojito drink mix(just add rum!). She bought it because she liked the shape of the bottle.

The bottle stoppers may get used. I've never had a problem just smashing the cork back into the bottle for the following day. We aerate everything anyway. The mojito mix will probably get left at my parents' house, and ultimately thrown away.

I've never had a mojito, but I think I'd prefer my first one to be made from scratch.

I gave one extra gift.

I pulled over a lady from Florida that was on her way to Oregon. She had a little cute Capuchin monkey in a little car seat in the backseat of her car. I clocked her going 70 in a 60. I initiated a traffic stop, followed her a couple miles. I turned on my overhead lights and she pulled over. After running her plate, and ID she came up clean. So I got out of my patrol vehicle and carefully approached her vehicle checking the backseat as I approached the drivers side window. And what did I see? A cute little monkey wearing an elf costume. The little fells was eating grapes and was generally calm. I did the routine information check and came back to the car and issued a verbal warning for speeding. Jeffery, the monkey was still dining on grapes when I requested that the lady please drive carefully and observe the posted speed limits. I encouraged her to have a happy holiday. I asked if there was anyway I could shake her monkey's hand and she declined my request sighting that I would likely be bitten because he is leery of strangers, men in particular.

I returned to my patrol car, and informed dispatch that I was 10-8. I noted into my shift log that I had just made the funniest, most awesome stop ever.

I get mostly cooking supplies for christmas now.

People used to make fun of me when I started teaching myself to cook but 6 or 7 years later no one makes a fucking peep. You taste stuff like horseradish rubbed prime rib, garlic mashed potatoes with a white wine reduction gravy and all jokes disappear. Holy shit was that prime rib good.
