Finals are over and it’s time to celebrate! We kicked off the holiday season on Saturday. One guest responded to the request to bring a desert in true HonieBriggs fashion, showing artificial intelligence is no match for the clever human. The spell check fail turned just another office party into a grammar police riot of holiday hilarity.


Yes, we are quite the party animals.


So, it’s that time of year again to reflect and express gratitude for the comfort and joy we have experienced. 2014 has truly been amazing. I’m humbled and privileged and so very happy in this moment. Until next year, peace.

    LOL! I love that someone actually brought a desert replica! I need to remember this the next time that common typo happens! Too funny!

  2. Happy New Year to you!

  3. Just desserts!
    Hope your “In-Between Holidays Week” is restful and fun ( and those too do go together!)

    I love the Christmas tree in the reflection there. That’s very nice. Cool photos! Thanks for all your wonderful writing. Have a peaceful and joyful holiday. Rest. 🙂

    1. Honie Briggs says:

      The reflection of the lights on the tree seemed kind of dreamy to me.

  7. Helen Ross says:

    Hi Honie. Love the dessert/desert and your images. So happy for you that you blew the finals to smithereens. Congratulations. Enjoy the festive season – lots of laughter and happiness always.

    1. Honie Briggs says:

      Thanks, Helen. I’m looking forward to next semester already.

  8. Fabulous Desert!

    I love your friends have a sense of the ridiculous!

    Happy times, finals are over and you can relax till the new year. I know you blew them all out of the water so enjoy this time. Happy Holidays, all of them.

    1. Honie Briggs says:

      Friends of mine have to have a sense of the ridiculous. They couldn’t put up with me otherwise. I did, I did blow the finals to smithereens. Hope you have a peace filled holiday, Val.

    I love the photo in the middle, of the reflection. And don’t give the grammar cops a pause. My wife, the high school english teacher, sends me email every day, because I don’t proof as she’d like me to. The “its” and “it’s” really get her goat. Of course, maybe that was just a really, really dry pie.

    1. Honie Briggs says:

      Funny, it was a room full of professional educators. So, there was no way around it for sure. Luckily there were PLENTY of desserts. Plus booze. My sangria was a big hit.

  10. I hope your desert wasn’t too dry!! haha

    1. Honie Briggs says:

      There were so many sweet treats, we all got our just desserts…and then some.
      Gym memberships in 2015!

    Better the grammar police than the actual police (but not as good as stripper police).

    Happy New Year and Season’s Whatever!

    1. Honie Briggs says:

      A fun time was had by all. Happy New Year to you as well, Sir.

  12. Enjoy every moment of freedom, family and love 🙂

    1. Honie Briggs says:

      Every moment, you bet! 😉

  13. I would have shown up with a sandbox filled with tiny plastic camels. In true Mark Petruska fashion.

    1. Honie Briggs says:

      I have no doubt you would be the life of the party, Mr. Petruska. Happy Holidays!

  14. Lyle Krahn says:

    Nothing like grammar police to liven a party! Well done.

    It doesn’t get much better than happy in the moment. Enjoy!

    1. Honie Briggs says:

      HA! Yeah, we really know how to have a throw down.
      Living in the moment is my 2015 plan.

Go Ahead, Make My Day!
