  1. The Christmas Spirit visited me briefly last Monday. Haven't seen it since. It may be in Hawaii with Amoeba, but I doubt it. He's sounding pretty grinchy, too. Maybe the Christmas Spirit only exists when we're together?

  17. Those maids a milking - well, it's nothing more creative than cows! Big black and white she-cows of course that are grazing freely and sustainably and only eating organic.
