As promised I have ditched dy in favor of The Advend Calendar this month. (Hopefully you have not been following The Advend Calendar and are unaware that I have kind of ditched that as well, although I have been making up lost ground this morning.) Some recent reviews include Oats ‘N Honey Granola Bars, the PureFit Chocolate Brownie Energy Bar, and, yes, Beef Jerky.
I was on the radio last week, doing my annual board games segment. Here is the link. Sorry I didn’t give you a heads-up in advance, but it was prerecorded and I didn’t know when it was going to run. Shortly after it did I had this conversation with my mother:
Mom: Hey, I heard you on the radio this afternoon.
Mom: Yeah, talking about games.
Me: Huh. I didn’t know it was going to be on the air.
Mom: You didn’t?
Mom: Then what … did you think you were doing … in the studio …?
After I explained that it wasn’t live, and didn’t know it was going to be on the air that day, it made more sense to her.
Also, I am writing my ninth (holy hell, ninth?) annual Holiday Survival Guide for Slackers. And when I say “am writing” I of course mean “should start writing” since it’s due to be published Wednesday, but throwing this thing together at the last possible moment hews with both theme and tradition. If you know of some unfathomly stupid crap available for purchase on the intarweb, please mention it in the comments of this post or drop me an email. Thanks! You are the best and I am not just saying that because I am again in a jam and desperately need your help although it is admittedly odd that I never say it otherwise.
