    Peter comes strolling into the Bistro. Looks around quite surprised about the fact that nothing much seems to have changed since the last visit. Well, expect for all the peaunuts and choklate cakes spread out over the room. Anybody here? Hello....

    Haha, a bit awkward Hindi. We would more likely say "Nayaa Saal Mubaarak"

    Yup, the word mubarak means congratulations -- at least how we use it here. And from the little Urdu that I know "husn-e" (the Egyptian leaders first name) means beauty or "beauty of". I've usually heard the word in romantic poetry referring to a woman.

    Wonderful Bistro Peeps: I wish you all a very happy/merry Christmas and a Happy Hanukkah. Hope to be back more often in 2017. I miss all of you and your wonderful personalities. Of course, I miss the Lemurov and LPV. xoxoxo ILC

    Realizing that we are missing ILC's great cooking, Alla makes a dessert for everyone at the Bistro.

    I enjoyed my Smirnoff Espresso 100 proof vodka when the local liquor store had it on a very low price special. Sadly, they ran out.:(

    Stringertom has been enjoying the Yuengling beer on tap, and rum and milk, mango martinis, and pints of Stolichnaya are getting the better of other Bistro patrons as the giant main Bistro television plays a match featuring Christian Ruud's son. Alla makes some much needed snacks.

    The lady who cooks for me makes excellent cutlets or dumplings with just about any leftovers. The latest one she did was with green/spring onions. Just delectable. Can't believe I've gone through life without this.

    Bistro mates, get your Happy hands together in a warm round of applause for birthday boy @Sentinel ! A special eggplant dish is in order for him from The Bistro's culinary staff.

    While nothing compares to ILC's eggplant dishes, Alla has kindly provided Sentinel with some birthday eggplant.

    ILC hasn't been around for awhile, so LPV, the lemur, and I are subsisting on Doritos and drinks. Alla is concerned, and drops by to make a healthy beet salad. In the interest of health, I order a beet salad and pint of Stolichnaya.

    The lemur loads up on Alla's poppy seed buns, beats the San Diego Bageler in the Bistro Challenger, then learns that he tested positive for opium.

    Maria speaks at her joint press conference with the lemur, and insults the Bistro carpet.

    I paid the lemur to go through Bistro surveillance tapes and delete any footage that erroneously gave the impression that I was depleting the Stolichnaya supplies without paying. He came across long-lost archival footage of Chris Edwards playing table tennis with Maria Kirilenko in the Bistro recreation room.

    Lucie invites the lemur over to enjoy some fruit with her. He asks, "Should I let Mike Bulgakov know that you're here?!" Lucie hold up her hands and waves them, whispering, "Please, no! Please, no! He's so annoying!"

    I sit alone and drink a pint of Stolichnaya while watching Nadal play Kyrgios on the Bistro television.

    Guys like Kyrgios and Tankic are frustrating to watch, but maybe Nick was really too injured. I wish I had the talent of some of the serial tankers. I have seen Kafelnikov and Goran tank matches in person. I was at a match where Goran tanked so obviously at Roland Garros that he was booed off the court. This is why I respect Nadal so much; he always fights and gives his best effort.

    Mosquitos are a problem with summers in the north. "El Mosquito" Ferrero use to be a problem on clay.

    Yeah. But the outdoor tennis courts at Luleå TK was nice. Rather non-crowded though. But really nice to play an hour on. The mosquitos stayed away that hour at least. :)
