Update from all fronts


In happy holiday news, my brilliant, beloved Sister told me about a new take on Nativity happiness: The Veggie Tales Nativity Scene! Honestly, what's not to love about vegetables celebrating the birth of Jesus??? It's enough to make me swear off salad forever...

It also takes my mind off the fact that I just received two Christmas cards from people I forgot to send cards to. The bummer of it is, both of them are fun and awesome people, so I can't even take solace in the belief that they will so enjoy feeling superior to me in their execution of pre-holiday matters that it will make up for my abject failure. When it comes to this kind of thing, sometimes I'm the windshield, sometimes I'm the bug.

Among the other "who knows how this will go?" items, THAT DOG is at the groomer this afternoon, getting her quarterly bath & trim. Please join me in a brief prayer that she not come back looking quite as bald and antelope-eque as last time.

And finally, an Important Question For Today: WHY doesn't tupperware EVER dry in the dishwasher???

(Important Question For Tomorrow: WHY does this bother me so much?)

Last night on Leno I saw a photo of a "Dog-Tivity." A German Shepherd was Joseph, and a Cocker Spaniel was Mary. A cairn terrier was the baby Jesus, and I felt all smug that I owned such a Christ-like pet.

Whenever I watch "Veggie Tales" I get hungry, but I learn important life lessons like
Bob the tomato "With God all things are possible"
Larry the cucumber: "Does that mean God will turn me into a chicken?"
It's really the only way I've ever understood the old testament.

Here's my take on Christmas cards. If you send them, inevitably, you'll hit someone who will open it and go, "Doh! I forgot to send one to HER!" Who cares? I mean, maybe someone lost their entire address book when it crashed and had to try to recreate it via memory (happened to me one year). Maybe someone wasn't sure they'd have enough to send to the extended list (happened to me this yr so we sent out a bunch later and probably missed a few). However or whenever I get one, I'm just glad I got one. And if I send and don't receive, I could care less. It's not the quantity of significant date cards I get that makes us friends. It's everything else. Now send me that card!!! (hee hee)

Love the Veggie Tales nativity! We have the Little People one, and I think it's more for me than my boys. You were moving in that direction anyway with your potato hippo. Maybe you should start your own veggie nativity!

Good question of the day--don't know why that is, but it's darn irritating!

I was going to mention the potato hippo, but Alyssa beat me to it :)

Pet hair cuts, what a trauma. Hope Kylie's makeover turned out well.
