my friend sue had this in her away message today, and it thoroughly amused me. gotta love the holidays!

"Our cookies are being stored in the cold on our front porch. A squirrel broke in through our mail slot. He/she/it tore through & ate a tupperwear full of chocolate kiss pretzels. A little part of me hopes he has a great holiday. A bigger part of me hopes the little bastard dies."

well said, sue.
