Music:Kim leafing through the phone book in my office
On Second Thought
Maybe my delusions were merely the product of a hunger for something not made of sugar? As kdotdammit has recently documented, the construction of a large gingerbread house in our kitchen has taken our usual excess to new heights.I actually thought, earlier, that I might actually have had enough of this icing, both literal and metaphoric, that I might even want to listen to something other than a Christmas album! Blasphemy, I know. But then I remembered the placement of our Tannenbaum.As Kim pointed our in her exchange with samifo, nothing takes the edge off that spoonful of sugar like a bleeding nun. Throw in the fact that I was actually at the Melvins show that Frank Kozik's imitable but still immensely fun art was promoting -- along with both tpratt and his sibling cpratt, if I recall correctly -- and it's enough to make me feel like I just consumed a steak on a stick. Or a spicy, somewhat Greek-tasting ground lamb concoction, which is, as a matter of fact, what I'm about to eat.
