“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” — Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities
an office xmas party can be a most beautiful encounter – a Swiss on-line news site asked their readers to tell their extreme strories during that event
” Was am Weihnachtsessen passiert, bleibt am Weihnachtsessen? Nicht bei den 20-Minuten-Lesern: Sie erzählen ihre peinlichsten Erlebnisse von der Firmenfeier.
what happened during the office xmas party stays at the xmas party ? not with our readers: they tell their most embarrassing moments ”
here some translated exerpts
”after the party we were dancing. unfortunately afterwards I had something with a collegue. now there is no end to this story”
“in my 4th apprentice year a coworker filled me up badly with alcohol. I had to vomit into the umbrella stand because the toilett was busy. Since then they changed my name to ‘spewman’”
“the next morning after a merry xmas party I woke up next to my boss. it was terrific. now we are a couple”
“the boss was that drunk that he imagined to be an exotic dancer. the coordinator turned up the music extremly loud so that the police had to come. I’m looking forward to this year’s party”

3D printed cookies
Ho Ho Ho
so good looking
Today, publish a post based on unused material from a previous piece
i was still working on this pic for yesterday’s post when time ran out. so i’m glad for this present it today
Never again will my Xmas cookies be a failure.
These are my last years efforts: a pretty poor sight even though they tasted good. (I might also add in my favor that the heat in Australia does not help to bake at Christmas time)
With the new technology of a 3D printer, this malheur is a matter of the past.
In future my Xmas cookies will be perfect.
It’s this simple: first you create your design on the computer (or download one if you wish to make it even easier)
then you fill the cartilage with the cookie dough (I guess special mixtures will be available at the bakery or printing departments)
you insert the cartilage into the printer
how a perfect cookie is formed
next you put the print-out in the oven, set the timer to baking cookies so they will not burn and then push the right button.
Out come your perfect print-outs (I mean cookies of course) and you can enjoy to present them to your keenest critics.
All done with this fabulous machine hardly the size of your oven and it will fit into your kitchens easily because you can get rid of so many outdated kitchen appliances.
I start saving now !
pingback: What’s the most elaborate, complicated meal you’ve ever cooked? Was it a triumph for the ages, or a colossal fiasco?
