Stocking Stuffers

Ho Ho Ho… I’m not spending a bunch of time in front of a computer this week. (Because Christmas is family time. And also because I’ve got to cook a disturbingly expensive piece of meat today; and I once learned an important lesson about kitchen multi-tasking when I blew up a chicken because I was so enthralled watching baby goat videos on YouTube that I didn’t hear the oven timer. Cooking + Computer = Disaster)

So anyway, back to the desk next week. Until then, here are a few happy little holiday things:

I don’t know about you, but I’ve now watched this movie three times since the beginning of December. I plan to watch it at least two more before January.

I’m hooked on this song right now. I love the tune; I love the lyrics (“Let your heart hold fast / For this soon shall pass”); I even love the video and the little beating heart at the end. This is the perfect song for when you’re tired or frustrated or just indulging in some general malaise, and then you realize you’re kind of wallowing and you need to perk the hell up. Put this on full volume and pull yourself out of it:

And finally, may the new year bring you something that makes you as happy as bathtime makes this dog:

Have a glass of something bubbly; give someone a present; don’t eat mistletoe. Merry Christmas!

(PS: Penguins still arriving every weekday, here.)
