If you're looking for some holiday cheer, I highly recommend Celestial Seasonings' Candy Candy Cane Lane tea. This stuff is awesome. I buy it by the boatload in December so that I can drink it nearly year-round. Trader Joe's Cranberry Stollen is pretty darn good -- it's not quite as good as the stollen that my German grandmother used to make, but it has the added bonus of a marzipan filling.
The cats have been fighting and pointedly ignoring each other for a few days. They finally seem to have reconciled, in large part due to the chilly temperatures here in Chicago.
Another holiday favorite:
Bob Newhart is just awesome in this movie. If you don't like Will Ferrell, there's still a very good chance that you will enjoy this playful and light-hearted flick.
I listened to my first podcast today. I can see why people are hooked on these things! Jana recommended The Knitting Cook podcast in a recent post, so I checked it out, and I give it a thumbs-up. This would be great in the car -- now I just need to get one of those iPod/car broadcast system thingies. Santa? Are you listening?
