Bested by a black cat and a hot whiskey.

I spent my Monday evening drinking hot toddies in an effort to capture the ever-allusive Christmas spirit. And what do you know--I write fairly moving and heartfelt Christmas book copy while slightly under the influence. The kind of verbal daring-do my readers have come to expect, however, seems to require that I be in full possession of all my faculties.

Thus, this would seem to be a good time to introduce you to my new favorite avoidance technique. Granted, it looks like it should be easy. Tic-tac-toe easy. Just get one step in front of the computerized kitteh and keep it hemmed in so it can't step off the pad. I guess it's a good thing that it looks so damned cute as it sashays off the screen. Play it here.

Because she was merciless in her dedication to blog every day during the month of November and because her moon is apparently in the seventh house, Meg over at nutmegreports won the copy of Trimmings that I contributed to the prize pool at NaBloPoMo. I surfed over and read her blog and she's clever. I like that in a blogger.
