On January Without Alcohol: Two Thirsty People Explain

Everybody knows you do this in February. It's the shortest month!

Plus, if you live in Australia (you are welcome Jolie, it is good wine) everybody knows that January is the summer party month that comes after that other summer party month but with less family expectation and no commitments or events to attend (ie the good summer party month).

On I Just Deposited a Check in My Bank Using My Phone???

This sounds, er, convenient. No... wait, what, I'm sorry? Cheques?! Who the hell uses cheques? I've never owned a chequebook and have recieved cheques only from my grandparents, at christmas. That is how old fashioned they are. Truly, why are the banks trying to modernise something so antiquated?

Great. Now not only do I have to contend with a serious time difference... but everyone has taken the day off. Do you actually expect me to work, undistracted?

On Mom's Apple Pie With Vodka

Tell me about it. I actually googled 'when is thanksgiving?' in order to make this pie on the correct day. On discovering it wasn't on a weekend (really?!) I have postponed pie making plans.

That, and it is 30 degrees out so baking sounds unpleasant.
