Full Metal Jacket Reach Around: The Saints vs. Cowboys Edition

My daughter was lamenting the rise of "bandwagon fans" with regard to the Saints this week. She and her husband are arriving from Dallas this afternoon and we'll do Christmas with my mom this afternoon. In discussing what we'll do this evening, she said, "The Saints/Cowboys game is on Saturday night." I was unaware, actually. Saturday night? What's up with that?

Anyway, I said, "Oh! We'll have to watch that!" Her husband is a huge sports fan. And honestly, I'm pulling for the Saints even though I'm not really an NFL fan. This is when she said, "Oh you're one of those bandwagon fans!" I explained that I'm really just pulling for the Saints so they can have that perfect season. They've been so beleaguered through the years! My next door neighbor, Donny, is a true fan. He loved 'em when everyone went to the games with brown bags over their heads, and he's loving this season. So ... yeah, I'm pulling for the Saints.

Today I have a bit of cooking to do for our festivities - nothing major. I've pretty much given up on the spirit of Christmas finding me this year after the god-awful week we've had around here. The best I can hope for at this point is to just get through it all and look forward to next year. I'm not doing the big Christmas party I usually do, and I've done almost none of the baking I usually do. But it'll be okay - next year I'm sure I'll go overboard.

Let's get on to the links so I can go pick up a couple of last minute gifts and get my cooking done!

I live in Louisiana so I NEVER EVER see snow like this or this or this. I'll be glued to Fishersville Mike's coverage of the great blizzard this weekend! I think it's gorgeous, but I'm sure it causes problems, too.

I hope you have the NFL channel! I don't on my cable and I am stressing about missing the game. My facebook friends are going to keep me informed.

Thanks! I can't take the credit for the fantabulous art though. That's my talented Husband keeping my blog looking right.
Oh Costco, how I miss thee.
