  1. Hey! Start thinking about this one now… There were a bunch of lunch with Santa/dinner with Santa (one at Earlyworks!) in the paper yesterday. I’d love to take Mike. Do you and the girls wanna go? I’m open as to when and where — I just like the idea.

  2. Dunno… Helen was terrified of Santa last year (she didn’t like Men, facial hair, hats, or glasses, and Santa was 4 for 4). She might be better this year. I’ll ask her.

    We don’t get the paper, though. So I’ll have to see if I can find the information online. But yeah, we’d probably be interested. Just getting it to work with my schedule would be a challenge.

  3. JOHN MAYER! Points for you, Elaine. Talk about a phenomenal musician. His next CD comes out soon-it’s all blues with his new group, The John Mayer Trio. Whoohoo!

  4. Sarah — I did a side-by-side comparison in a 24-hour period. Trust me. Diarrhea is better. Because at least something is happening other than PAIN.
