Christmas Week Distractions

Christmas is just days away and, as usual, I’m not ready. I could run around in a frantic and useless effort to “get ready,” but instead, this morning I’m cruising my favorite sites on the interweb looking for answers and smiles.

On RIGHTNETWORK, this smile from Hope n’ Change Cartoons creator Stilton Jarlsberg:


Stilton’s accompanying essay is also worth a read.


Next, also on RIGHTNETWORK, my favorite blogger, MOTUS with the solution to those last minute Christmas gifts: Michelle Obama’s Last Minute Winter Holiday Gift Guide.



No, I’m not RIGHTNETWORK’s publicist, but another from RN’s Editor-in-Chief, Gerard Van der Leun: Yes Virginia There Is a Santa Claus.



On hopenchangery, Christmas 2010 … with a wild video:)



Finally, from BigFurHat on iOwnTheWorld, the chance of a lifetime Contest-Ice Mail Ask Hunk.


Act now because

This contest will be open until tomorrow, 11:59 PM. The winner will receive an assortment of 3 authentic New York candy store candy bars, hand-selected at the peak of flavor by BigFurHat, or a Baracky Horror Show greeting card signed by an office lacky pretending to be BigFurHat. Your choice!

What better way to while away your remaining few hours before Christmas?

Lastly, but by no means leastly, enjoy this beautiful hymn from Jewel via American Digest:



And if that doesn’t do it for you, nothing will.
