Get ‘Em While They’re Hot…

During an errand run over the weekend to a local pharmacy, I couldn't help but notice the massive Valentine's Day greeting card and candy display.


I'm curious about these people who purchase Valentine Day cards in December. They must be an extremely punctual group of people.

All five of them...

The Best Holiday Animated Gif Ever

Somehow, the month of November slid past my blog radar like the Girl From Ipanema disinterestedly passing oglers on the beach. Alas.

But in the spirit of staying
present moment aware, I'm going to jump back in as if I just returned from checking the mail box – preferably with a fistful of sparkly Christmas cards in my hand.

Just in case you've been living under a holly bush, the holidays are here! As a matter of fact, I'll be heading out the door later this morning to find the needed parts to
create my own Boutonniere for a festive Christmas Party that I'll be attending later this evening.

My goal is to arrive at Michael’s Arts and Crafts early enough not have to stand in line with the speed-of-sloth moving parade of blue hairs and their BOGO glitter adorned faux silk poinsettias hand stitched in a Chinese sweat shop so that I can make the purchase of the roll of green floral tape (also from a Chinese sweat shop no doubt) a swift and painless ordeal.

In the spirit of all that is holiday fun, I now bring you my favorite holiday themed animated gif from what is, in my humble opinion, still - after lo these many years - the best holiday animated film of all time.

Enjoy in the present Zen moment of watching Charlie Brown and his best bud Linus contemplate existence while watching the snow quietly fall around them.


And Happy holidays to one and all!
