Today is International Anti-Corruption Day. Yes, the irony is strong in this one. It’s also Vet Day, Pastry Day, and Christmas Card Day. Any of those are better. Which means I should take my dogs to the vet, give them cookies, and then write my Christmas cards,
But it’s going to snow and I have a lot of work to do, so maybe just the cookies. Although I did get a great “Do Not Bend” rubber stamp for my fancy-schmancy Christmas cards. Hmmm . . .
Remember last year when we did the signed edition thing in the Crusie Book Store? Mollie just put the last of the signed Harlequin and SMP hardcovers in there (that’s a drop down menu on the page, there are more than just Strange Bedpersons). Mollie is usually pretty swift on the shipping (ask those who bought last year), but it’s the Christmas shopping season and evidently everybody is ordering online which means the shipping services are swamped, so be warned.

Okay, this I didn’t know: a fritter is ANY food baked in batter. Like even tempura is a fritter. I prefer the apple fritters that are mostly doughnut and glaze, but you do you. That picture up above? Bacon-Apple Fritters. And then there’s , , ,

It’s also National Novel Writing Month, which I try to do every day to keep the lights on and the dog cookie tin filled. So let’s go with World Numbat Day because the numbat’s numbers are decreasing. Let’s get those numbat numbers up, people. We have a species to save. Here are a number of numbats (never gonna get tired of that):
I have a thing for apples. They’re the only fruit I can eat without gagging. No, I don’t know why, but it means that even though I’m not a huge fan of apples (like I am for, say, chocolate), I quarter one every morning and eat it so I can feel virtuous about eating fruit. Also, apples are pretty good. Also pumpkin (is that a fruit or a vegetable?*) but it’s hard to quarter a pumpkin and eat if for breakfast while you’re half asleep.
An apple a day keeps the HMO away. Also known as the Republican Health Plan. Eat an apple.
