    Oh, that room badly needs some sort of damping, but I love that staircase, and the art. And that console table. Sometimes you want things to be a little out of control.

    My girlfriend flies in to Cincinnati on Friday. I am thinking of making a batch of this when she is here, then taking it with me when I visit her in NC for my birthday. I have a decent cooler for my car, and then we can also drink whatever bourbon and rum is left over from the production (and Al's recipe is indeed the definitive version, and thank you for having made this thread, again). Goddammit Matt.

    It will be tasty (and I definitely think rum is the real base of the nog). Anyway: I don't necessarily agree with Kenzi Lopez-Alt on a lot of things, but he seemed to think that fresh nog is fine!

    What a kook.

    Has he been doing "paranormal photography" or something? It wouldn't surprise me, if so...

    I do think the UG wears extremely well. I have it on a period 20x14 Spiedel lizard strap and a UG gold-plated buckle. That strap has had the better part of a century to outgas, and it don't cause me issues. The watch keeps terrible time, but that is to be expected from a Unisonic, even right after service. There is a reason quartz became the electric standard. This would be an incredibly charming watch even if it didn't have my dad's name and social security number engraved on the back, but I'd hate to have had to have timed that 14 second burn on Apollo 13 (which was actually done with a 1675 GMT Master, not a Speedy) with it.

    I'm planning on putting together this year's batch together tomorrow. I didn't actually get to drink any of last year's batch, but that was a weird time in my life (I still made the batch, regardless!).

    That is definitely a shearling Bund strap.

    My AirPods currently last about two hours, so this is gonna be a perfect. They are my most used tech that isn't a phone or computer.

    I think it's a very strange looking watch, myself. I think it may just be the relatively wide bracelet. The details are all as you would expect from an ALS, but I'm not sure why I would buy this over, say, a train, which I could also afford.

    Me timing black beans this morning for soup later. Chronographs are useful! Oh, no worries, and you do great! I was making a joke about making a joke.

    I was just making a joke. Pretty does help, though.

    The movie more or less was what happened in the comics, but the movie was bad and the comics are really, really good. Sometimes it's not the circuit, it's the implementation, I guess. Keep in mind that Alan Moore hasn't had a good idea in about 30 years, and it's a series very much of its time. As for me, Damon Lindelof is a total fucking hack, and I won't let him waste another second of the time I have left on this earth, if I can help it. I'd rather watch a show written by my cats, and the script for it would just be the word "treats" written over and over. At least that would have a reasonable ending, what with the cats finally getting treats. That is a far superior ending to anything Lindelolf has ever written.* *I haven't seen The Leftovers, but I have read the book. No thanks. Having said all of that, Al, if you are interested in the comics, the art by Dave Gibbons (pencils and inks, and I believe also the lettering) and John Higgins (colors), is a masterclass. And it's Moore at his best, and his best was very good (it's more than thirty years old :).)
