***Christmas shopping's done, mostly wrapped and under the tree. I've actually been done for a few days now. Just have some "fun stuff" to do - stocking stuffers, little things like that. We're having a big dinner here on the 26th for Mark's family. Mom & I went to Meijer yesterday and got all our groceries for Christmas Day at her house and the dinner at my house on the 26th. In between, of course, I have the house to clean and transcription to do. Not much relaxing going on around here! I've been transcribing since 3:00 this morning, gonna have to knock off and get ready for church soon.
***Obama the Narcissist. He used his eulogy for Daniel Inouye to talk about...himself. Oh, what a surprise. Even liberal site Slate mocks him for it.
***Do you know the "Elf on a Shelf" story? I didn't know about this until last Sunday, when some friends at church told me. I just thought it was a slightly weird-looking decoration.
A “magical” elf that flies back to the North Pole each night to report to Santa whether your child has been naughty or nice, and then reappears the next morning in a new location in your home. This little elf likes to play hide-and-seek, so upon his return from the North Pole, you could find him anywhere, from your freezer (which reminds him of the North Pole) to hanging from your chandelier. Children are told not to touch the elf, as he will lose his magic, but they’re encouraged to tell him any special messages they have for Santa.
