Do you know what the acorns are?


We find it necessary to tell/remind you that Food Network will be airing the episode of Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee featuring the exceedingly infamous Kwanzaa cake, this Friday, December 21 at 12.30 p.m. That's THIS Friday. Meaning, stop what you're doing, go home, turn your DVR on and set it for Friday, December 21 at 12.30 p.m. And then don't go back to work. Go to City Bakery, get a special hot chocolate (with marshmallow, bien sûr!) and take all the to-go menus you've been collecting from your doorway over the year and kindly return them from whence they came while screaming, "MERRY CHRISTMAS!", at the top of your gin-soaked liver.

For reals. Happy fucking holidays.


O' little James of Bamber-hem.

Yes, it's been almost two months. We have no excuse but death, disease, work and Alaska to offer (though not necessarily in that order). For reals. If 2007 was the worst year in the history of the 2000s (which, by the by, it was), the finale proved to be...well...grand.

In any case, thusly, such as, speaking of offers, we don't got much to offer today, except the bestest Xmas gift a boy could receive, which this boy did receive today:

Yes, it's our estranged pilot/boyfriend, and he sent us greetings across the galaxy! With three "x"s. Meaning he LOVES LOVES LOVES us. We knew it! It only took the best Christmas ever to make it true.

We hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and that you have successfully avoided both the egg nog and the family. We were this close to pulling it off. THIS close.

See you in '08!
