'Tis The Season 

Kill! Kill! Buy! Buy!

At the mall on Wednesday, past red-suited Salvation Army bellringers, the stores were full of tinsel and snowmen, shimmer and tree, and not much more in the way of crowds than an average Summer sunday. We didn't buy much -- some shoes, a pink peasant skirt for the elderchild, a sit-down lunch at Friendly's -- but we weren't holiday shopping, either.

On our way back home, the year's first Christmas song turned up on the car radio. This morning the astutely audiocool jefito posted his 2006 Holiday mixtape. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and it comes earlier every year.

But shopping on Black Friday? A great way to lose your sanity and your kids. We're not celebrating Buy Nothing Day per se, we just hate the crowds. Happily, a teacher and his family can always start shopping at 3:00 midweek to beat the rush. What do you want for the holidays this year?

"What do you want for the holidays this year?"

One interview with you (yeah YOUSE) for my site, which I'm about to update with a few new interviews in the next few hours.

That and a Mexican hot chocolate from Mocha Joe's...

A new job would be nice as well, but unfortunatly I don't think you or anyone else can do anything about that.
Send interview questions -- I'll email 'em back.

What, you wanted video? Welcome to the millenium, my friend.

Unfortunately, Mexicocoa doesn't travel well via Internet. It's full of tubes, you know -- drinks tend to spill.
