Man. Now I wish I had thought ahead and knew I would want Christmas Nachos for Christmas.

(Christmas Nachos are just Nachos. But on Christmas.)

Lol George threw up in The Kid's beanbag chair this week, which was resting on a hardwood floor.

But I don't think George ever passed his cat test. He is constantly doing shit the other cats would just point and laugh at. And why him and his brother were at the pound when we got them.

I make bachos a lot, which are just nachos but for breakfast. And then, I invented nachos, which are bachos that you eat at night.

What you're looking for is "Christmas bachos," or "Chachos."

Everyone knows how the song goes, "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire..." But how many people really have roasted chestnuts over an open fire for Christmas? I can't think of a single person. Of course nuts are part of Christmas tradition today as we can find walnuts, pecans, almonds, pistachios, and of course the corresponding famed nutcrackers in stores. Chestnuts also can be occasionally be found but these are always the Chinese variety as opposed to the traditional American variety. It has been said that roasting chestnuts on an open fire was such a common tradition in the eastern United States that its distinctive smell could be found throughout towns in the east this time of year. Part of this was because the American Chestnut tree was extremely abundant prior to the early 1900's. But no more. So what happened to this once nearly universal American tradition? The answer can be found in the plight of the American Chestnut beginning in 1904.

The Asian chestnut trees have grown for millenniums with chestnut bark fungus, resulting in strong resistance. American trees, however, were never exposed to this fungus and therefore could not easily survive infection. Beginning in 1904 the first american tree infected with the bark fungus was found in the Bronx Zoo. The disease had been accidentally transported to the United Stated from Asia on an imported Chinese Chestnut tree. After the initial infection in the Bronx, the disease spread rapidly through air-born fungal spores. American Chestnut trees were killed by the billions. The disease quickly became known as chestnut blight, and by the early 1940's had made the american chestnut tree exceedingly rare. During this 40 or so year span the chestnut tree also was aggressively logged in forest areas and cut down in residential areas. This aggressive removal of trees was done simply because it was thought they were all going to die anyway. As a result, the blight made this once abundant tree has today been wiped out from the landscape and with it, the tradition of roasting chestnuts at Christmas time.
Hope you're okay, Angakuk:

I didn't know I was that old either.

When I was a kid, we used to go ice skating on the pond in the winter and come back to shore for roasted chestnuts in the shelter with the fireplace.
