>With Carin gone for the holidays and me leaving tomorrow, things are likely going to be pretty quiet around here for the next week or 2. but before we all but close up shop for the most un-vacation-like vacation of the year, here are a few random links to keep you entertained while we’re off eating ungodly amounts of food and drinking ourselves stupid. I’m sure that many of you will be doing the same things, but if you happen to find a spare minute somewhere or if nobody likes you and you’re not invited to anything, here ya go.

for crying out loud!
*Quick question. If Santa is
such a poor role model,
where are all the stories about kids getting hurt or worse because they’re sliding down chimneys? I mean if you’re going to be a fucking goof about everything, you might as well be a fucking goof about *everything*.
*if you want to be entertained by somebody much funnier than us, check out
Glen Foster’s YouTube channel.
