In today's episode of BBP against the AIVD Christmas Puzzle I'm doing a word search from hell - like 50 names in 5 categories that you first need to encrypt and then find in a huge diagram.

I found three so far... 47 to go...

I gave my blood today. My girlfriend does it quite often so she asked me if i would do it. I did. I'm not really a fan.

Well done!
My father's been a blood donor since his teens, his mother too was a blood donor, and my sister was one until her tick bite. Dad's blood is quite popular with them, he's O-.
I considered it since I might just be O-, but I'm too scared of needles.

I don't typically 'do' Christmas. It's kitsch and full of bells, pine, christianity and other things that make me itch.
2018 was a pretty big year for me though, since I got a new job. And in the canteen, they have a radio. Which plays Christmas songs all the time. Now I liked Slade's Christmas song but hearing it twice a day...
And then there's the company Christmas party...
Which was totally awesome - at the Evoluon, my beloved UFO-shaped building, with a circus theme and great spare-ribs. Could've stayed there forever! :)

Like some other members of my family, I'm a bit impulsive, but I'm also timid, that does curb my spontaneity. Yesterday I did something highly impulsive.
As I was cycling home from work, I noticed a sign that said "Free (couldn't read)." This peaked my interest, after all, I'm Dutch, so I walked over, bicycle in hand, to see what was free.

It was Christmas trees! We always used to have one, but back in 2007 the combination of high prices and my worsening pine allergy made us stop getting them, so now we have two little plastic things to keep things sort of Christmas-y. In a split second decision I decided to salvage the poor tree that would otherwise have been burnt, laid it on my bicycle and walked home.

Dad was a bit dumbfounded, he hadn't expected me to come home with a tree, but he directed me to the tree stand, and brought the decoration boxes from the attic.
All the baubles are there, from the newest one I got at work to the old aluminum baubles that my father made because mini-BBP loved to squeeze them. The newer lights break all the time but the oldest lightbulb ones that were in the tree when I was tiny are still there. The wooden figurines, the disco-ball, the elegant purple pendants, the beautiful mat purple baubles, the old silver baubles that are older than me, the paper angel I made aeons ago, the pompon balls we bought at the christmas market when I was in elementary school... It's a jumble of different colours and textures but all baubles are welcome here. For the first time in years, I feel the Christmas spirit. Not the tacky stuff from the movies, but a nostalgic spirit of the good ol' days when Christmas was worstenbroodjes and free from school, sleighing at Grandma's and gazing at the beautiful tree.

Unfortunately the tree toppled today, I hope it'll stay up this time... and that after Christmas is over, we can put him in the yard.

I wish you all very happy holidays!

Merry Xmas guys!!

I agree with Aqua, that's a lovely story Bonny. My wife has always been a full on Xmas person and I've gradually been drawn into it over the years. It's always a big production here.

Tree's still standing!

I spent Christmas at BF's, which was wonderful, we went to see his grandmother, had dinner at his sister's and solved a lot of puzzles!

I'm just taking it easy in the wake of all the festivities. All that preparation and then it's over in a flash.

Anyone set themselves new year resolutions? I've just taken up regular swimming as exercise and aim to keep it up three times a week. I'm still formulating other resolutions.

Happy new year to you, guys. No particular resolutions for me, just trying to continue what I started last year would be fine.

My best-viewed post on my Tumblr has been flagged and condemned to being "inappropriate". I'm really upset about this now that it's been reviewed and still marked as inappropriate.

Sorry to hear you had a rough day. I didn't think it had been over a week since I was here last.

I don't know much about Tumblr, they sound pretty strict. What do they say is wrong with your post? Is it the same one you mentioned some time ago?
