Holiday Blogging Commences

So it’s heading into the end-of-the-year time, and I myself am taking off work until January. Blogging around here will be somewhat irregular, and will feature more recipe lab preps than usual. If there’s any big news, I’ll certainly post about it, but otherwise, some days there will be stuff here and some days there may not, and posts could appear at any time of the day. Enjoy!

    happy holidays Derek and all!
    Looking forward to reading y’all in 2018.

    Merry Christmas (secular outrage), happy holidays (religious outrage) and stay safe in the lab (neutral territory).

    1. Hap says:

      It’s sort of sad when statements of concern and wishes for happiness for others become weapons themselves, though I guess that’s humanity’s problem in a nutshell – anything can be a weapon if you use it (in)appropriately.

      Merry Dies Natalis Solis Invicti. 😀

      Stay safe in the lab? No singed eyebrows, no glory! And motile sperm means you’re not spending enough time at the bench.

  3. Hap says:

    ‘Tis the season to be jolly!
    Fa la la la…la…la la la!

    Well Happy Holidays to Derek and to all!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all ! ! !

    This nonChristian wonders why Christians have permitted themselves to be culturally castrated. Fortunately we are still allowed to bask in the glories of “The Messiah”, “The Christmas Oratorio” etc. etc.

    Nothing will placate the professionally offended.

    1. Design Monkey says:

      Yeah, yeah, lusii, your sort of religious crazies now are continuously and professionally offended, that they are losing former privileges and influence.

      Serves you right.

  6. DrOcto says:

    This Blasphemist will still be taking Christmas off though.

  7. Some Dude says:

    Happy Holidays! I bought your book (German translation, absolutely massive) to give away as a Christmas present.

  8. dearieme says:

    This atheist bids you a Merry Christmas.

  9. jegham says:

    You deserve your Christmas break.

    Newtonmas, Saturnalia, Christmas, Yule, Solstice, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Festivus…will you have a stunning black lab coat for the new year? Reciprocal t you yourself diddled with Procion and Cibachron reactive dyes. Now you can buy them simple as a green laser pointer.

  11. Vince Campanile says:

    Happy Holidays sir! Enjoy the time off!

  12. Mad Scientist says:

    Have a really nice Christmas break, Derek, and all the best to you and your family in 2018!

  13. Scott says:

    Looking forward to the new recipes!

  14. David Edwards says:

    Perhaps Derek will have some spare moments to launch the first draft of the “Things I Won’t Work With” book that so many are clamouring for him to write … 😀

    If the hilarity I experienced with “Ignition!” is anything to go by, once Derek has written said book, he’ll be able to retire on the proceeds …

    1. eyesoars says:

      Yes, but only if the printing is limited and Derek keeps a goodly chunk of those printed, to dribble them out over the next few decades via e-bay.

  15. Druid says:

    The winter solstice marks the point in the calendar after which the sun appears higher in the sky each day and day length increases, bringing warmth, growth and fruitfulness – something everyone can celebrate in higher latitudes. That time is now in the North (sorry southern hemisphere, but your time will come). Now, where did I see mistletoe?
