A Very Special “Kitchen Sink Christmas”
I broke through the Marvin-induced writer’s block last week and managed to turn in my last Huntsville Times community column before the deadline.
It wasn’t easy, though. But I just sat down and forced myself to brainstorm through the dusty annals of Christmases past for that just-perfect Yuletide memory to share in what I envision as a sort of coup de grace of a grand finale.
Come Sunday, check back here and watch me wrap up paganism, death, evolution, guns, whoopee-makin’, spittin’, a balding, 40-year-old man armed with a pitch pipe and an attitude, a Bible-bangin’, red-faced Church Lady (think Dana Carvey in SNL), the, ahem, “fruit of the vine” and a “par-tri-udge, in-uh, pear-treeee” into a neat package and top it off with a big red bow.
Just think of it as a very special “Kitchen Sink Christmas,” from me to you.
Yeah, I’m kind of going for broke on the last one. What are they going to do, fire me?
As always, looking forward to it!
I’m sure it’ll be the best one yet!
So…what’s on the agenda next, now that you’re done w/this newspaper gig?

Now that I have a “body of work” so to speak, I’ll bait the hook and see if I get any nibbles.
Tough economy, though–everybody’s cutting back, including newspapers and the publishing industry. Fortunately, I have a “day job,” so I’m not desperate and I’m in no particular hurry.
