Merry Christmas Eve!

Earlier today I told Juliette what my mother always told me on Christmas Eve: that if you're awake when Santa comes down our block, he will skip right over our house. Juliette took this quite seriously and went straight to sleep - at 1pm. This put a bit of a kink in my plans to take and post a family Christmas Eve photo, so instead I had to settle for the picture below, which I have artistically titled "Juliette in Holiday Repose." Honestly, it's not much different from her regular repose, but just humor me here, okay?

I also want to share my absolute favorite Christmas story ever (okay, well, of the moment). It's called "6 to 8 Black Men," by David Sedaris, and it appears in his book Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim. You can hear his reading of it by clicking "play" below. If you don't guffaw loudly while listening to it, you're a Communist. Simple as that.

I've been informed that some of you on Macs can't see the player above. If that's the case, you can click here to either play or download the audio file.

Merry Christmas from Juliette and Me! 

P.S. - If you can't find us tomorrow, put out an APB for the former Bishop of Turkey dressed like the Pope, and six to eight black men. I guarantee they had a hand in it.
