Nadolig Llawen pawb!

  • The North American Aerospace Defense Command's tradition of tracking Santa began in 1955, when a local Sears, Roebuck and Co. store ran a newspaper ad urging children to make a phone call on Christmas Eve and talk to Santa Claus. As fate would have it, the phone number was misprinted and, instead of reaching Santa, youngsters found themselves talking with Air Force Col. Harry Shoup of the Continental Air Defense Command.

  • Make Santa do your bidding.

  • The Ten ages of Christmas

  • It's not a bear in a tree, but just as good.

  • I wish I had thought to do stuff like this when I was younger. Oh, hell, I think I'll go out and get drunk and do it, anyway.

  • Unfortunately, if you drink too much over the holiday, there's no hope of your avoiding penance.

  • But if you imbibe on sherry, it means you are cosmopolitan.

  • Most importantly, though, please remember the reason for the season -- tortilla chips covered in cheese.

    I am so relieved to read that a spokesman for the Stadium Club reasoned not to continue to use the pan, coz imagine them cooking Jesus in between the nachos! That just wouldn't taste right! ;)

    Look closely at the picture. Did they find Jesus or Osama Bin Laden?

    It is hard to tell in a pan of nachos.

    My dear friends Miranda (from somewhere in New Hampshire, Live Free or Die!) and Kathleya (from Austin, Texas) lived across the hall from me in South Hall of Bard College and had engaged in Christmas decoration mischief. They had a nativity wise man in their room clearly stolen from a creche scene. The wise man was plastic, about 3/4 of lifesize, and lit up. He was hooked up to the Clapper. The soundproofing was so shit in that dorm that I could illuminate the magus (singular of magi?) by clapping loudly from my room.

    If it had been me I'd be selling "Jesus Nachos" the very next day. (cue mariachi music)

    Thank the world, these kids only stole Christmas decorations and not the presents. Hope you are having the merriest X-Mas, Chris, with everyone around you who is dear to you. Miles of smiles, Astrid.
