Viceland: Not Ancient Aliens Reruns! But, also, why does this thing exist as a cable channel?

vice_logoWhen it was announced that A+E Networks was to convert H2 into a 24-hour Vice network, I was pretty excited. The HBO show is great. Their digital video content is grand. As long as they don’t let most of their writers near this thing it should be a no-lose.

A Christmas List

Little gifts I’m grateful for receiving.

  1. Watching my niece watch Star Wars
  2. Getting Chinese food on Christmas Day and binging on bad and good TV with my parents.
  3. Teaching my niece about responsibility by getting her a laptop and setting up time limits and parental controls with only a little bit of a freak out on her part.
  4. Doing absolutely nothing today.
  5. Getting a very childish gift (Disney Infinity) and playing it with my niece and my sister.
  6. Knowing that I got everyone gifts they love but never would have bought themselves. (The wireless chargers for my stepdad were a big hit).
  7. My cat not getting put down for failing kidneys even though it was a close one. That’s him in 2013 in the pic at the top.
  8. Learning that Chinese spareribs are way better than I expected.
  9. Finally getting through Daredevil and Making a Murderer.
  10. Getting to see my little cousin we helped raise for the first few years of her life 8 years later.

Mulled for the Gods

Mulling wine for the good of Thanksgiving was the best idea I’ve had in a while. Here’s a very precise recipe that I used. Sorry for the lack of real pics… but you can imagine, right?

If not, you can imagine it looks a little like this minus the star anise because it’s my least favorite spice of all time—I mean, who really needs a spice that tastes vaguely of licorice and/or fennel? 😠

I paired the picture of mulling wine with one of my sister passed out after consuming most of said wine. Recipe after the jump. Continue reading Mulled for the Gods
