Almost Christmas-Lookout for that Fruitcake

I hope that everybody has a safe and happy holiday, be it already happening in your part of the globe, or about to happen in a few hours.

I have the next few days off and will be posting on and off, not online as much as usual, but enjoying lots of food and trying to stay out of the rain. It was cold and rainy today at home-one of those days you want to just sleep all day, which is pretty much what I got to do. Sleep is so under-rated this season.

I did watch the Food Network quite a bit today. It was great. There was some show where this guy setup a fancy table in a crowded shopping mall, complete with big signs that said..."Free! Come and Get it!" only to advertise free fruit cake. Needless to say, he did not get many (if any) takers. He did get more than his share of folks lured by the "Free!" sign, walking up, and running away empty-handed though. Kind of funny that fruitcake has become such a horror that he couldn't even give it away, for free, in a crowded shopping mall but then again, what do you expect? This is fruitcake we're talking about, right?

Anyway, I hope you eat too much, sleep all you want, get plenty of presents, avoid the nasty, recycled fruitcakes, and maybe get to enjoy a visit with the kin. I'll probably start up the yearly "best of" stuff when I get back from doing the same.

Until next, is that a fruitcake....run!

PS My friend Mike, AKA "CraftyGuy" has called this image "Madonna of the Blessed Disco." I rather like that. Kind of fits her, don't you think? There was an article in the paper today about the good folks at 37th Street and there, um, "taste" in Christmas decor. Holy Mackerel, anyone?
