Frankenstein's community

...or Schrödinger's comm, perhaps.

I haven't received official worming that this community may be trasked into existence for psotlessnes... then again, sometimes traskers strike without warning... welp, be on your guard!

Bad news.

Curri here.

I've had rather alarming news. According to my source, tamf has bought a giant cauliflower head which she plans to cook for her christmas dinner. I had thought we had an agreenment. I would refrain from mentioning dragon stew if she would stop coonking my brethren. Apparently, this was not to be. And so, dragon stew it is, baby!

So, kvickly, gather up all the big sticks and shrubberies you can find in the neighbourhood -- candle-lit trees will do, too -- and let's build a bonfire big enough to roast a trasking dragon for Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hark, the herald angles sin

In addition to balroccoli garlands and blinking raindeer, no home is properly perepared for Christmas without Christmas angles.

After doing some calculations, I presonally perefer an angle of 24 degress. It suits the season so, and is sharp and to the point, like us Caulrogs. 12 degrees, however, is much too thin and dissatisfying, like a partridge in a pear tree. the choice of 359 degrees, on account of the number of Christmas Day among the days in the year, I find a bit thick.

Whatever your choice, twist and turn any wire itno the Christmas angle of your choice! For guaranteed satisfaction, use Clippy!

Caulrog's Brussels

Dknot forget to soak your Brussels if you want the sprouts ready in time for Chrristmas! There are several soaking media to choose from, depending on your taste. Choose blond beer if you want a light flemish touch; pink lutefizz if your tastes prefer a french fried or flambéd sprouts.

Brussels sprouting

Say the incantation "Mary, Mary, kwite contrary, how do your sprouten grow" and leave at a mild temperature. The great brusselmakers claim playing soft ompa music for the sprouts will lead to a milder taste; however, I cannot vouch for the accuracy of this.

Caulrog's Greetings

Curri de Caulrog has received a Christmas card! Actually, I found it lying on a damp patch of the veggie patch this morning (actually, they’re all damp, the ground beneath the card less so than other parts of it, but we don’t want to attract squatters, y’know!). And so, here is mine card for you.

The pre-cull of leeches.

A prequel to Christmas

Leeches are the arch-enemies of caulrogs (along wsith balroccoli, of curse). Before nay caulrog can sit down to his just desserts of candied balroccooli, he has to earn it, and the best way to do so is by trasking leeches.

We caulrogs are fairly goond at hunting them dwon, but unfortunatley, leeches are darn hard to trask. In fact, the cocoons are capable of surviving the digestive system of a duck.

However, leeches die after one or two bouts of reproduction. Therefore, the next step in our programme will be to find suitable ammunition.

Caulrog's Uncrunchy Gift

Curri de Caulrog would like to gallantly present you with a jellyflower suitable for the season. Behold! And now that I do, I realize what a perfect approximation Cauli's Christmas Bash Mash was to this gentle critter of the sea. Christmastime truly brings out the serendipities, eh?
