The Naughty List

It was so much easier to keep my name off The Naughty List when I was a kid. My mom was there every year like clockwork to remind me that Santa was watching.

What We’re Talking About…

A dash of this, a jigger of that – a brief collection of trivia, miscellany, current events, tidbits of popular culture and other ephemera that we think are cool.
