1. As I’ve been full of the Christmas Spirit not having to work two jobs, I’ve been watching Christmas movies. Holiday Inn was in the queue this week and so I got to see the original rendition of “White Christmas.” Which was followed by a number for Lincoln’s birthday featuring Bing Crosby in blackface. Ugh.

2. I’ve found a blog about working on and living in old houses from the 40’s through the 70’s: Retro Renovation. It even has tips on what to do with a pink bathroom!

3. The mittens performed admirably at the company party last night, even though it was SEVEN BELOW at Soldier Hollow–and that’s not counting the windchill from tubing.
