It snowed here today. Nothing DEC 23 1999
It snowed here today. Nothing like snow to put one in the holiday spirit. And by "holiday spirit" I mean "the mood for full-on, unadulterated, American-as-apple-pie commerce":
And by that I mean that I went shopping today. Well, I actually went to Target for about 20 minutes with some friends so they could finish their Christmas shopping. And did we find a nifty gift for a certain little boy out there. The Leap Frog Alphabet Pal teaches you the alphabet by saying or sounding out all the letters; each of the caterpillar's feet is a letter you see. The best part is that by pressing letters consecutively, you can make the thing say words....and more importantly, naughty words. The letter combinations of "F" & "K" and "A" & "S" were particularly effective. No one else in the crowded toy aisle found this amusing, but Mark and I were chuckling heartily.
