Discovering Instacart might change my life.

These modern services enable my dwindling desire to engage with the outside world.

IN JANUARY. IN MINNESOTA.

And why should I leave my house when Millie the Dog is learning to speak Human?

If only the shop were actually connected to my house.

Just look at that commute! Ridiculous. 

Or... inspiring? It must be inspiring because I made this.

January has already been SO busy. I don't know about Jen, but I've had to take a really active role as a listener/watcher.

First this: (Sherlock!)

And then this: (Serial Podcast: season 2!)

And now THIS?? (Making A Murderer, brought to you by the good folks at Netflix and Men's Wearhouse!)

It's a lot to keep track of... I'm taking notes if anyone needs them.

Don't ask me how (DON'T ASK ME), but I was able to squeeze in one card:

I'm pretty sure it was our Jewish neighbor (and not Santa Claus) who put our presents under the tree when we were at Midnight Mass.

I got a globe.

But I barely remember that! I barely remember crying and sulking in my bedroom! Because this was the Lord's day, not mine!

Merry Christmastime, everyone!

Feeling pretty fancy over here because The Washington Post picked up the Religion News Service article! (Is that how it works?? See? TOO fancy for me!)

But, obviously, not as fancy as Dinah.

Thank you, Religion News Service, for appreciating the ho-ho-Holiday-humdrum-hole-filling.  

And thank you, Dinah the Cat, for understanding the true meaning of Christmas.

And you're right, you should be in the new Christmas card.

 Oh, No Coast Craft-o-Rama... You never let us down! 

The Midtown Market's halls were decked and bedazzled with all things Holiday... And handmade goodness was traded for cold-hard-cash. 

The Zeichen Press Empire is always draped in black fabric because black is slimming.

Here's a new Christmas card/fantasy?:

The No Coast Craft-O-Rama is TODAY and tomorrow (December 4th and 5th) and Jen has been feverishly printing in preparation.  

She must have been too busy to notice my new woodpile!

Come see all of the Holiday Goodies at the Midtown Global Market today — Jen will be giving out free hugs with every purchase!

Once Upon A Time, my sister got the stomach flu so bad. Poor thing... up in the middle of the night... every bit of food evacuating her body post-haste. Who knew the colon could churn and transform loose stool into clear liquid? Well, my brother found out when he sleep-stumbled into the bathroom and slipped and skated on the translucent trots that never made it into the toilet-bowl.

See? Analogy. Our gratitude just pours out of us! It's almost like a medical condition.

To "give back", we are hosting Macy's Thanksgiving Parade!

Tune in!
