It’s the winter solstice today, which means it only gets better, light-wise, from here. Hooray!
Today’s post features two items that should bring cheer to the darkest day of the year:
- Saying Yes to Mess Embrace your piles! Messiness is a sign of activity, or so sayeth the NYTimes. (of course, January is Get Organized Month, but who says you have to participate?)
- Stephen Colbert’s “Shred Off” challenge vs. Chris Funk of the Decemberists. Okay, most nights I struggle to stay awake until 10, but last night I battled my way to 11pm in order to catch this show in its debut. Did you see it? Totally worth the stay-awake effort. The number of cameos alone astounds. It will run again on Comedy Central today at 9:30, 1:30 and 7:30. (all times CST) Trust me – you will not be disappointed. And then at 8, you can egue into the rerun of The Office: A Benihana Christmas.
See you tomorrow for my final post of 2006!
