My beloved sister is more years old than she was before!

Of course, a lady never tells how many, and so I won't either. Happy birthday, dude. Keep up the Retardcapades™.

Happy birthday, Incas!

As your present, I give you this:

It is remarkably faithful to the book, though the pacing does drag unforgivably. Still completely worth Netflixing.

Thank youse! I got my ass handed to me last night at bocce as a birthday present. Gosh, thanks. It's my ass on a platter!

Dido, I had no idea there was a movie adaptation. You have made my day.

I think the correct response to having one's ass handed to one is: "Why, thank you! It's the loveliest gift I've ever gotten!"

as i (unlike some people) actually watched all of hogfather, i can tell you it is maybe a little TOO faithful to the book. geez, a three hour miniseries, guys? couldn't you have, i don't know, chopped out some teatime and added some more death and HEX christmas wishing?

Heh. Not only did she watch it all, she was also the one who discovered it for us. I should remember to credit my sources.

Neither my BF nor I had ever played bocci before last night, and we still got to hand the birthday girl her ass on a platter. Seriously, your big sister has played bocci roughly 693458 more times than I. 'Twas big fun.

We all postulated a connection between not drinking and ass-handing, or drinking and ass-being-handed-to-ing, but we'll leave that connection to be sorted out by a multi-million dollar government study.

I'll submit the following piece of self-incriminating evidence. After the DFH and his BF left, sober and victorious, I beat the pants off of my friend Ced, who was at that point drunker than I. That was while I was still nursing my double bourbon. The next game -- and with two additional shots under my belt -- he beat me 13-0. It took 13 rounds.

My shapely ass, slowly served up on a drunk platter.

By the way, DFH, I really enjoyed your boyfriend checking out my ass.

DFH, I would like to also postulate a connection between never having played before and handing Katie her ass. First me, then you & the charming boyfriend... can it be coincidence? I'll let you know as soon as I get that multi-million-dollar grant and we can start charging the mid-game cupcakes and grape soda to the gubmint's account.
