Hello my little Christmas Kringles –
Holidays are fast approaching and I am sure your evite list is as nightmarish as mine. I’ll just do a quick and dirty party train for those people who are too cool for ugly sweaters or white elephant.
Before we get down to it, I wanted to float a request for a long table and/or outside heating devices for the New Years Eve Party. That includes those cool tall outdoor heat thingies, garage heaters and firepit-type accessories. Sure, I can buy them off craigslist but I would rather shamelessly use you. And you like it. Don’t go for shocked denial – that look so doesn’t work on you. Also, respond to my evite please so I know how much champagne to buy to get you all sufficiently embarrassingly drunk.
The Santa rampage was rambunctious – highly recommend it for next year.
Yours in “I haven’t bought one present yet and may have to start making things out of dry macaroni“,
Deals o’ the day: 20% off world market today online – great presents for that person that you have no idea what to buy for. “Thanks! I absolutely needed another set of wine charms!”
