Weird, Retro, Whatevermas!

You can’t look good in that sweater.


You guys know I’m a fairly traditional sort of holiday observer, right?  No, really, it’s true.  STOP LAUGHING!!!  I have habits!  Okay, not the same ones most people have. Can you blame me?  Some of the stuff that comes around this time of year is more than a bit odd.  Here are some glimpses, and MERRY CHRISTMAS to alla youse:

    • Ahh, yes, the ending of “A Christmas Story”! Fa-ra-ra-ra-raaa…

      We were potlucking at a house with a couple of kids, seven rebel geezers, and a visiting sage crone. I dug out my guitar synths from storage for the first time in three years, and we played some semi-musical nonsense to great mirthful effect. Thanks for asking!

    “I have been searching for the perfect curl cream for most of my 33 year lifespan and I believe I have found it in this product!”

  7. Merry belated Christmas! It’s 350 days until Chrismas and people have their lights up already, can you believe it?!
