‘Snide Remarks’; Christmas shopping; coffee cake

What’s with all the war movies this year? And what’s with all of them tanking at the box office? These issues are explored in this week’s “Snide Remarks,” entitled “War Is Hell (at the Box Office).”

Speaking of Christmas shopping (well, I was thinking about it), today is the last day to order something from Amazon.com, get free shipping, AND have it guaranteed to arrive before Christmas. You can still buy stuff this week and get it in time, but you’ll have to pay for two-day shipping. Either way, if you’re doing any Amazon buying, I’d be much obliged if you’d use this link to access the site, or the link at the top of this page under the “Buy Stuff” tab. I get a small commission that way, and that small commission helps me buy slice after delicious slice of coffee cake at the cafe that just opened across the street from my apartment.

Also, rent. But mostly it goes toward coffee cake.

P.S. To the people who thought I had made a “mistake” by posting a picture of Chip and Dale in Friday’s blog that mentioned “Alvin and the Chipmunks”: If you have to explain your jokes, or even explain that something is a joke, then life isn’t worth living.
