JIngle Bells

Ah, Christmas.


More love.

Except for the lunatics who stormed a Wal-Mart at 5 am yesterday in Long Island, NY and trampled to death a "temporary" worker.

Which brings and entirely new definition to the phrase "temporary worker."

Apparently everyone was subsequently s intent on their Christmas shopping bargains, no one noticed or attended to Mr. Trampled.

Not to be outdone in the Spirit of Christmas giving, a pair of determined fathers exchanged lead at a Toys R Us in sleepy old Palm Springs yesterday. That's right. They shot each other dead over some terribly significant dispute. No doubt a Game Boy or iPod.

Ah, Christmas...

I almost finished my Christmas shopping for my 3.5 year old and 20 month old. I bought them stickers at a local store. 2 packages for a dollar!!

I was going to go to one of the big box toy stores and buy a nice colourful pack of Play Doh, but since shopping for toys as become too dangerous, I will make my own play doh.

My recipe:

2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour

1/2 cup of salt

3 Tbsp of canola oil

2 package of no-name "Kool Aid" in the colour/flavour of my choice

2 cups boiling water

Mix dry ingredients. Add oil and water. Stir quickly, mixing well. When cool enough to handle, knead with hands. Store in an airtight container.

I hope there is no rampage, riot or fist fight at the supermarket as I buy my ingredients.

As for my thrifty gift to my kids - they will no doubt have hours of fun!!

Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah and best of the Winter Season to all!!
