the ass and lamb kept time

The Grizzly clan is super busy, what with the holidays and BUYING A FREAKING HOUSE, but I wanted to jump in here to wish you a happy, safe and warm holiday season.

Oh, and though I don't want to endorse one tradition over another here, I think it's a safe bet nobody ever got lost looking for their menorah.
That's one in your column, Jews!

brotherhood of the traveling pants

For several years my father and a friend of his exchanged the same tie rack as a gift. they would disguise it in various forms to delude the recipient into believing that this time it would be something else. If memory serves, this included baking the rack into a loaf of bread.
It was a hoot.
Eventually, even my father and his buddy got bored with this game. I am sometimes disturbed to find myself daydreaming of similar ways to torture those closest to me. What is this tendency?
I don't know, but I doubt that anyone has taken the tendency to a greater extreme than these guys.

I think I linked to this from my old blog, but I think it merits perennial mention.

Ol' Griz loves him some vintage paperbacks, but has no time for blogposting, nevermind cataloging and indexing book covers by artist.
Who does?
This person does. Enjoy!
