Amazon.com ruined Christmas!

In addition to the awesomeness that is the iPod Shuffle (mmmm…transferring podcasts), I received a nifty little surprise today in the form of a book! Now, as you all should know, books are a great holiday gift to give a geek, most especially because geeks love geeky books!  And none is more geeky than Robert Heinlein…at least so I’ve heard. 

Having never actually read a Heinlein book … hmm … perhaps I’m not as big a geek as I thought I was.

Who am I kidding?  I’m super-excited to have something to read while I’m in Michigan for the holidays.  Thanks, Scott!

Not that I won’t have plenty to do.  My Newphews/Neice-in-law are going to take up some time, and of course, there’s the (perhaps irrational) trepidation I’m feeling over Ethel meeting Baxter (their dog). You haven’t lived until you’ve watched your 140-lb Newfoundland puppy chase after the wiley cat around the back of the Christmas tree.  Wanton destruction!  I wish I had a picture of that from last year. 

Jesus-in-the-Manger at the foot of the tree was traumatized!

    But how did Amazon ruin Christmas?

    Hey, Janice.

    Amazon’s first attempt was exquisitely wrapped in a decidedly un-holiday pale-green satin and pastel paper.

    However, the contents of the package were not the Heinlein book, but rather a treatise on the wonders of Gloog (or some such). In other words, they sent the wrong book!

    I guess, if Christmas = Surprises wrapped in paper, Amazon.com was spot on!

Change a Lightbulb, change the world!

It only takes 18 seconds to change a bulb. If every American home replaced just one light bulb with an energy-efficient bulb, together we could save enough energy to light more than 2.6 million homes for a year. Find out how you can save energy and cash by making the switch to energy-efficient light bulbs... and check out how many have already sold in your area.
