Howdy all! Nice Santa graphic. I love old Econolines.

I love how one reindeer has his arm flowing in the breeze!

Yeah, that's a cute touch.

Hello, Ms. Meghan, and Underwater Ones.
Avatar Thu. 12/21/17 12:14pm still b/p:

Someone I knew used to have to keep at least a finger out the top of the window when she was small -- like a snorkel, for a taste of breeze that could help avert motion sickness; crucial if riding in a back seat. Even a flight-capable reindeer might need it if you change things up on 'er.

That was a great Christmas set, but I'm surprised you didn't include anything from the Rev. Horton Heat Christmas album.

Afternoon all! Digging the holiday set-- I'm so glad my conspiracy-prone relatives tend more toward the fun kind (aliens, Mothman, Crowley, etc).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 1:25pm Uncle Michael:

Cab-overs are cool as hell...but will kill you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 1:25pm Meghan:

Oh, that is way more fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 1:32pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I remember driving around Colorado to go on a rafting excursion and we had borrowed some guy's old cab-over Chevy van. The brakes barely worked, so coming down mountain passes was extra thrilling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 1:33pm Uncle Michael:

They'll mainly kill you because YOU are the crumple zone.
Avatar    Thu. 12/21/17 1:35pm βrian:

That's why so many took the symbolic measure of bolting a spare tire up front.

Taking my first breath of the workday, thanks for the Cheech & Chong, maybe only the second or third time I've heard that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 1:45pm The Oscar:

One of my favorite college parties was a Mix Disc Party, where everyone brought a mix and took home someone else's. I still have the one I got somewhere.
Avatar    Thu. 12/21/17 1:47pm βrian:

Yep, no Christmas presents. Just good cooking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 1:49pm northguineahills:

I haven't started xmas shopping yet. I only have to get stuff for my immediate family. I only start shopping for my wife after xmas, as everything is cheaper, she's never complained.
  Thu. 12/21/17 1:49pm queems:

i love giving gifts, but i make a lot of stuff for people
Avatar    Thu. 12/21/17 1:50pm βrian:

By lamb, do you mean baby lamb?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 1:50pm northguineahills:

no one in my family has a decent palette, so my cooking is lost on them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 1:51pm The Oscar:

Going on my customary last-payday-before-Christmas gift card hunt after work tonight. Wheeee!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 1:51pm northguineahills:

(my wife misses my cooking). About to go make some dim sum for lunch at home if I can finish this project.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 1:52pm northguineahills:

@βrian: as opposed to adult lamb?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 1:52pm Meghan:

hahaha.... Well at least it isn't happening on Christmas Eve!

And homemade gifts are lovely. Lots of love and thought in them.

And yes, baby sheep= lamb. Baaaaaaah.
Avatar    Thu. 12/21/17 1:56pm βrian:

@NGH: For emphasis, don't you know. Baby, baby, baby lamb??
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 1:57pm The Oscar:

The gift stigma I've never understood is when people think it's improper to give used items as gifts (books, records, etc). I always LOVE getting used gifts-- there's a better chance of getting something truly weird, and it shows they went out of their way to find something that reminds them of you.

one of my favorite signs in astoria where i used to live was on a butcher shop and just said BABYLAMBGOATPIG

(I'm quasi-vegetarian, but lamb is the only meat I miss. The sound of the electric roasting spit is a hypnotic memory ...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 2:00pm The Oscar:

Also loving everything I've heard off this KG/LW. I might need to pick it up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 2:01pm Meghan:

Best gift I got to give a friend was a record signed by the guy she had a crush on at Mystery Train Records on Newbury St. The guy was the singer of Gigolo Aunts. She was embarrassed and excited all at the same time. Wonder if she still owns it.... since this was back in High School....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 2:02pm northguineahills:

Bonus Meghan!

I eat meat maybe once every 10 days, and only if I know it will be good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 2:04pm Meghan:

one song bonus!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 2:05pm northguineahills:

@The Oscar: Very true. Too bad my family only like shiny and new things, but mrs. ngh has good tastes, and there are some good and funky thrift stores around here.

Went to a lamb farm a few years back. Nearly as cute as piglets.

This song makes me sad. It reminds me of a road trip in the summer. Specifically driving up the Delaware river. I️ loathe winter

Nice, nice, thanks for the bonus track(s), see you next time, Meghan>
