Full Metal Jacket Reach Around: The Get Christmas Started Edition

This weekend's FMJRA was delayed because I set out yesterday in search of the annual Christmas tree and then proceeded to decorate the thing.  Hope it's still alive at usually is, but not for long after that!

Today will be filled with pretending that I don't have to go back to work tomorrow (after a week off!) and with baking the annual fruitcake cookies.  I should have done this last week and they should be steeping in good bourbon already, but I'm a procrastinator.  Even if you don't like fruitcake, you'd love these cookies.  They're perfect bits of sugar, cinnamon, allspice, bourbon, and pecan.  Can't be beat!

Tomorrow is cyber Monday so help your blog buddies by hitting their Amazon stores or shopping links.  Amazon is having some great deals tomorrow and this is a great way for you to get your shopping done and help this blog at the same time.  Plus, I've opened an Amazon Store.  The shelves are a little bare right now, but when I fill it up I'll repost.  There's a link to the store over there in the sidebar.

Some links now, because I have cookies to bake:

The Daley Gator has another TSA fiasco (and a little outrage to go with it.)

Donald Douglas posts thoughts on plagiarism.

The Other McCain snaps back at Krauthammer on the topic of Palin while Legal Insurrection discusses Palin Derangement Syndome and the liberals obsession with her.  Yankee Phil has the proof.  Fishersville Mike responds to the question, "too much Sarah?"

Doug Ross has a report of executions of civilians by Hamas in Gaza.

Pirate's Cove has his linkfest up while Reaganite Republican has posted his Sunday Funnies.

Pundette is also trying to help out your cyber Monday shopping.

No Sheeples Here notes Obama's lack of engagement.

Adrienne has a great post on Medicare that hits close to home.

Wyblog posts on the seizure of domain names.

Bob Belvedere is celebrating Rule 5 with Raquel Welch.

Mind Numbed Robot has some WTF moments.

Okay folks.  I've got cookies to bake and then head over to my mom's to see what's shakin' over there.  Oh and about 45 research papers still in my car need to be graded by tomorrow.  Yeah.  That's going to happen.

Not only is my tree and house decorated but my room is as well. Complete with lots of Peanuts decorations.

While not a fan of fruitcake cookies, you won me over with the 'steeping in bourbon' part.

Pat Austin said...

Heh! I'm sprinkling them every couple of days with Crown Royal Special Reserve. Excellent.

Heh, I can imagine how that bourbon sprinkling might be going. Reminds me of a Cheech and Chong Christmas with the magic dust. "A little more for Santa Clause, A little more for Santa Clause..."
They sound delicious. 8^)
