...that tomorrow is the opening of TRUE GRIT. Barry Traylor sent this link to Roger Ebert's review, and it's a good one. I can't wait to see it, but the way the week's going, I'm going to have to wait until next week.
...that we've got a contest going to win a copy of BEAT TO A PULP, ROUND ONE. It's a random drawing and you have until midnight Pacific time, December 24, 2010 to enter. Send your name, address and email address to Powerspulpwriter@gmail.com.
...that you only have three more days to shop. Like you really needed a reminder?!
...to wrap presents while you still have time. Don't wait until midnight on Christmas Eve like I do. Sometimes I've waited too long, and end up wrapping the present in the car in front of the recipient's house. How many of you have done that?!
...to leave cookies and milk out for Santa. I hear he likes snickerdoodles. Oh wait, that would be me.
...to drive carefully this holiday season. We seem to be getting our share of storms this year.
...that there are a lot of people this year that need a little extra help to get through the holidays. Call someone you know who's unemployed. Spend time with a loved one who's depressed. Send a check to someone who's having trouble paying the rent. Donate to a food bank. It's nice to volunteer at a soup kitchen on Christmas, but in these times money is what these places really need.
...to hang stockings for the pets. They like presents, too!
...to try to enjoy the holiday. Do like I do: don't stress out over finding the perfect present. Twenty years from now, people aren't going to remember what you gave them. Unless it's something like a million dollars.
