You're an Elf and You're Going to Wear Panties Like an Elf.

My holidays are never really complete without reading Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris.

The first story, "Santaland Diaries," is all about the time that Sedaris was an elf at Macy's in New York. It's by far, one of the funniest things I've ever read. Since I've worked retail at such places like a grocery store (and not a good one. We would have rats die in between the shelves in inaccessible locations and get such things as turtles in the refrigeration bay), a video store (I swear, it was just like Clerks), and Foley's (where the would have sold my kidney to the highest bidder if there was a way to legally do it), I can totally relate. If you don't know who David Sedaris is, you should really read him. If you know him already, this book is a delight.

You might also notice in the Moblog that I put my Christmas tree up. So what if it's less than six inches tall? It's still a tree, damn it, so merry Christmas!

A six inch Christmas tree? Shameful.
