An "Office" christmas party, but then a shut-down for the rest of the year

Not much of a report today because I'm making something I've never tried before, Italian macaroni and cheese, for our office holiday lunch today. And, thankfully, so far it does look like something resembling macaroni and cheese.

And actually, the craziest and best news out there today is that Oliver Stone, fresh off making a thoroughly entertaining and somewhat insightful portrait of "W.", has now set his sights on Venezuela's Hugo Chavez. "W." was a return to the kind of movies Stone used to make before he lost his fire, so his Chavez doco should just be fascinating to watch.

Tonight, however, it's all about "The Office" Christmas party, which, thanks to Phyllis, has a - surely disastrous - Moroccan flavor. Here's a two-minute-or-so sample which features Dwight's take on the hottest toy of the holiday season (I won't spoil it for you, but it's hilarious) and other tasty bits. On the sad side, this is the last "Office" episode of the year, and with a possible actors' strike looming in January, who knows what might happen next, if anything. Enjoy, and have a perfectly passable Thursday. Peace out.

What constitutes Italian mac and cheese? a little sausage?

It's still a vegetarian dish, but along with the usual stuff it adds parmesan and mozzerella cheeses, spaghetti sauce, peppers and onions ... I didn't taste it in advance, so I hope it worked!

This is great for any party

Mmmmm mac'n'cheese is my favorite. If you ever visit Seattle, I can direct you to the 5 best mac'n'cheeses in town. (One of which is at my table.)

I'll definitely take you up on that if I ever manage to make it to the great northwest, but it doesn't seem too likely any time soon ... My big trip for 09 looks like Mexico for a week or so in August, about which I'm already just thoroughly jazzed
