I totally had a long post planned for today since I kinda phoned it in all week (I’m tired- I’m sorry!), plus the Union Square Holiday Market starts up next week, so there’s going to be LOTS more half-assing on this blog between now and the end of the holidays. Buuuutttt…..
Maybe it’s lucky or something- I have no freaking clue. What I DO know is that it’s a perfect excuse to post THIS!
If you feel that wasn’t enough, here’s a longer collection of Spinal Tap highlights. It’s Friday- you can probably get away with watching the whole thing without anyone noticing.
And now for the cupcakes! These cupcakes will give you armadillos in your pants!
