« "Vancouvria" -- a great satire of Portland's boring neighbor | Main | Our unreal (really!) 2011 Christmas Letter is unveiled »

December 22, 2011


Thanks, Brian, that was a good read.

I too prefer sending the hand-written Christmas greeting. I love taking a generic Hallmark card and personalizing it with white out and pen into something the receiver and I can relate to - like some past experience or a running joke. Always an attempt at humor or at least corniness. I like to think I'm doing it for the recipient, but I know I get as much or more out of the process as they do on the receiving end.

Merry Christmas to Brian and all of his readers!
