God-Damn it, it is mighty cold (and we are not just talking about Tash’s shoulder *ba-dam tish*). This week we decided to take an afternoon nap in our toasty warm bed. And after the nap, we watched Youtube in our toasty warm bed. And after the Youtube, we tried to come up with a word for when someone asks “what are you thinking?” and what you are thinking is not really important but it would be a lot of effort to put it in to a sensible collection of words; our best was ‘mind drifting’ and ‘thought flotsam’. And after all that, we ran out of any ideas about how to legitimately stay in bed, until Tash remembered we had not done the podcast. Here is that effort.
In this exciting episode, our heroes, Tash and PantslessJam, meander through some holiday topics. While the energy was low, the insight… was also low. Indeed, there’s not much to recommend this episode, but you never know. Out of something that might seem objectively terrible, you may find the love of your life. We know that Tash did.
Here’s to your holidays going well, or at least being short.

P.S. Here is Tash’s recipe for Bailey’s Balls (or Rum Balls if you insist on tradition):
1 packet Nice biscuits
1 tin sweetened condensed milk
1 cup of desiccated coconut
a few tablespoons of cocoa
a few tablespoons of Bailey’s
1 additional cup of coconut for rolling
Crush up your biscuits (I find a big bowl and the end of a rolling pin to be the way to go)
Throw in your booze, condensed milk, cocoa and the first cup of coconut
Mix it all up
Pop it in the fridge for 10 minutes or so to harden up a bit
Get out 2 plates: one for your second cup of coconut and one for the finished balls
Grab about a big teaspoon of mixture, roll it into a ball in your hands, then roll it in the coconut to coat it
Boom, you’re done! Repeat for the rest of the mixture.
