We’re here to help each other: holiday edition

Hello sweet ones,

(It’s been a chaotic few weeks here, and I’m just getting a chance to write this; my apologies. Thank you to everyone who has already sent a gift along; you are too kind and I appreciate you thinking of me.)

I am a lucky, lucky girl, with a fantastic family, friends I adore, a roof over my head and plenty of food to eat. So, as I’ve done last few years, I’m asking that anyone who is planning on buying me a birthday or Christmas present to please give food or money to their local food bank instead. There are too many people that need the most basic food items right now, and you could change their lives immeasurably by just giving a little bit. It would be the best gift you can possibly give me, in taking care of those around us.

Also, I’m reviving my Christmas ornament offer from last year: for every ornament you get for my tree before December 30, I will donate $10 to my local favorite, the White Center Food Bank, on top of my regular donation. Thanks to H. and S., who have already personally hung ornaments on the tree during trimming last weekend, we’re currently at $30. C’mon over, bring and ornaments and I’ll make you some food and drinks in return for your kindness and generosity.

Here’s hoping you’re side-stepping all the building holiday frenzy out there and just spending time with those you love the most – the rest is stuff and nonsense.

Paul Simonon: Now, with 500% more badass

It seems that Paul Simonon, Clash bassist extraordinaire, spent some time this year as a cook on a Greenpeace ship as a cook, during which he was arrested with the rest of the crew for taking part in a protest against Arctic oil drilling, and spent 2 weeks in jail, all completely unrecognized.

This is a gentleman.

Check out the video below for the whole story, along with live performance by The Good, the Bad and the Queen.
