  • When that almond nog coming?!
  • Bought pumpkin nog at New Seasons for coffee times.
  • I really don't think fake nog is coming to my co-op
    I don't know what I will do
  • guys I just want to say
    i'm going to a high-intensity conference this weekend
    and I will often be comforting myself by going to my "happy place" while there
    which is me in a quiet comfortable room by a roaring fire, sippin' on a nog
    think of me

    GUESS WHAT WAS AT THE CO-OP?
    GUESS WHAT IS IN MY COFFEE RIGHT NOW??

    NO, NOT LOCALLY SOURCED BULGUR
  • I went to Costco and saw a mountain of nog.
  • BEEN HITTIN THE NOG HARD LATELY

    GOT THE NOG SHAKES

    ROTATING BETWEEN THE ALWAYS DELICIOUS CALIFIA ALMOND NOG & WEIRD NEW SEASONS PUMPKIN NOG -- I'VE SEEN SILK NOG IN WHOLE FOODZ.

    NO STRAUSS YET. KINDA WANNA MAKE SOME HOMEMADE NOG BUT WHO WILL DRINK IT WITH MEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
  • "We've been taunting and teasing you about our year aged egg nog. Well, the bad news is you still have to wait a week. The good news is, starting Nov. 24th this rich, boozy concoction of rum, bourbon, and cognac will be available for your imbibing. There's only 10 gallons available this year, so it should hopefully last through the week!"

    HALE PELE
  • oh fuck

    I'm ready. It was pretty good last year!
  • guys this is a true thing: whenever I buy nog it is gone ALMOST immediately, because my husband literally just drinks it all in one sitting. It is so fucking weird and disgusting. He'll just pour huge pint glasses full of it until it's gone. Then he's like "I wish we had more nog." I literally can't buy enough nog to keep him in nog. And needless to say I rarely get any nog of my own. Unless you are willing to open it the minute you get out of the store and literally chug it as though it is water, you will not get nog in this house.

    I think he is gross and I do not find this story cute
  • Courtship is supposed to weed out the nog hogs....
  • I know, but we courted in summertime when there is no nog

    a cautionary tale
  • My friend told me that a couple of years ago she drank so much nog that she ended up getting really sick and dehydrated, because it's all she was drinking (no water).
  • NOG HAS WATER IN IT
  • (BUT MOSTLY IT'S JUST NOG)
  • 1 part water to 10 parts nog
  • THANK NOG IT'S ALMOST GHH TOMORROW

    NOGDAMN
  • NOG THE FATHER, NOG THE SON, NOG THE HOLY GHOST
  • DID YOU GO TO THE NOG THING AT HELE PELE
  • IT WAS COOL
  • RIGHT NOW IN MY FRIDGE:

    1 New Seasons Pumpkin Nog
    1 Strauss farms Seasonal Nog
    2 Califia Holiday Nogs

    We did a nog tasting at Thanksgiving. Most people liked the pumpkin nog, but everybody preferred the Califia with added bourbon.

    FACT NUTMEG IS SEEDS
  • FACT NOG IS SHITTY WITHOUT NUTMEG
  • ANYBODY WHO DISAGREES CAN EAT A D
  • Fact: For some persons, nog is a license to 'Go Blue'. This condition is known as 'Nog Blue'.
  • guys I am starting to think that I don't like nog that much

    Gary bought really really fancy local organic beautiful home-made real egg nog in a glass bottle and it just doesn't taste good to me. And I realize that it should.

    Am I a monster?

    I'm going to call my mom and ask if I am a robot. WHY DID YOU NEVER TELL ME

    Now I will have to go on an urban adventure with a sex robot played by Jude Law

    actually doesn't sound too bad
  • OMG I had some amazing secret nog made by Tyler at Fenrir last night. It's got brandy and aquavit and was so thick and eggy and weirdly refreshing. Too bad it's #secretnog #notavailabletothepublic
  • last night I wasn't paying attention until it was too late and Gary had drunk literally like 3 water glasses full of regular full-egg/full-cream nog. He was like "I don't feel so good" and when I realized how much nog he'd had I got so mad. I don't understand why he thinks he can drink the equivalent of like a gallon of raw eggs, cream, and sugar in basically one sitting. I don't understand how anyone would even want to do that.

    I think we are going nog-free for the rest of this season. "If you can't be trusted to drink nog like an adult then we can't have any more nog."

    It's not even christmas yet! Not even close

    NOGVERDOSE

  • I got a bottle of 8 year rum at work white elephant yesterday so I'm gonna get some nog at lunch and put the rum in the nog!
  • omg Gary!!!
  • More victims in the path of the Nog-Capitalist axis...
  • MAN UP GARY
  • "I think we are going nog-free for the rest of this season" I would like to hear Gary's opinion on this!
  • I have told him straight up we can't have any more nog this year. He just looks sheepish

  • NOG BAN
  • OH SHIT
  • That is the greatest nog story ever told.
  • He has returned to us to pass on his hard-earned wisdom
  • THIS MAN IS A GODDAMNED HERO

    We are reading Farmer Boy (Laura Ingalls Wilder) to Calvin. I never read it as a kid. Last night we read the chapter about harvesting the hay, oats, and wheat. They bring in some extra workers and the whole family works their tails off in the hot sun to get all the grain harvested. Imagine my surprise when they stop at mid-day for a super refreshing drink of ... EGG NOG?!?!?!

    "In the middle of the morning, Mother blew the dinner horn. Almanzo knew what that meant…Mother met him on the back porch with the milk pail, brimming full of cold egg-nog. The egg-nog was made of milk and cream, with plenty of eggs and sugar. Its foamy top was freckled with spices, and pieces of ice floated in it. The sides of the pail were misty with cold…he set down the pail, he dipped the dipper full, and he drank. The cold egg-nog slid smoothly down his throat, and it made him feel cool inside. …When he reached the hayfield, everyone stopped work. They…passed the dipper from hand to hand until all the egg-nog was gone. Almanzo drank his full share. Lazy John said, wiping the foam from his mustache, ‘Ah! That puts heart into a man!’ …Father always maintained that a man would do more work in his twelve hours, if he had a rest and all the egg-nog he could drink, morning and afternoon.…”
  • Sounds like a chill sitch. Surely nothing ever went wrong for them, just mellow nog seshes in the field.
  • HA HA HA HA, I very strongly remember this scene! God, her descriptions of food are so hallucinatory. Descriptions of food written by someone who has actually known true hunger. They're honestly pornographic. There's that other part in Farmer Boy where she keeps describing the "sleek lumps" of butter and how glossy and sleek and firm they are

    EGG NOG on a hot farming day! It's so weird and does not sound refreshing, but maybe it is from a world in which you need so many more calories than you could ever actually get into you, so something about just drinking straight eggs and creams was like your body was crying out for it?? I can't imagine

    remember this, one of my favorite things on the internet: http://thehairpin.com/2013/07/farmers-bo

  • Freddy, I'm interested in Calvin's thoughts on when Almanzo gets his eye shot out by the baked potato
  • Oh yeah I meant to say that the boozy hot nog at Broder was AMAZING this year.
  • I read that baked potato chapter to him the other night. He was pretty startled by it and didn't understand the mechanism. "Why did the potato explode?" I believe I convinced him that potatoes are not an impending threat to our family, but I can' t be sure.
