Still As Busy As One Of Santa’s Little Helpers

Darn it! Most of you will probably not be checking this space tomorrow (and I probably still won’t have much time to do anything with it) so have a very Merry Christmas!

    I haven’t had breakfast yet and now I’m hungry for pizza- nice work. And I for one will be expecting a Christmas Eve post, so just because it’s the holidays think you get a pass… (spoken like a true Scrooge!)


  2. Barb says:

    I don’t see any bacon on that pizza……… what is wrong with you? 😉

    Hope you & all the ITP readers have a great Christmas!!!

  3. Excellent, mission accomplished!

    There *will* be a post tomorrow. That post might be written as I start my “day off” at the office working, or it might be written as I lounge around the house sipping coffee.

  4. Barb, there was no bacon in the house. What, what????!!!!

    Thanks for the Christmas wishes. Best of luck with your gum surgery. I hope things go so well that I see you at Shakespeare Tavern tonight.

  5. Barb says:

    Here’s what you do so you never run out of bacon – go to Sam’s (or Costco, or BJs) and get the extra large bag of Hormel bacon bits – best discovery ever by us, you wouldn’t believe all the foods that have been made better with bacon bits. It lasts quite a while in the fridge.

    thanks – hopefully see you tonight – I’ll get to watch everyone eat & drink…….
    I’ve spent hte last couple days eating chewy food, I had a great steak last night, I’m eating a chewy bagel right now, and a cheeseburger will be eaten on the way to the appt!

  6. Barb, I hope you’ll at least be able to consume alcohol tonight. If so, and assuming Shakespeare Tavern still sells bottles, please help me consume the one I’ll be purchasing.

    Oh, and I used to keep Bacon Bits in the house. I found that they reconstitute well especially in things like omelets. Note to self: go to store! (after Christmas)

  7. Stacy Fox says:

    LOL at Barb. And Paulie, REALLY?! No bacon in the house?! What is wrong with you? I see I have not been the influence I should have been on you in 2010. Will have to change that for 2011.
