Also, Yoda wants you to know he is the Master of the Force even when wearing a Santa hat and an angel robe and standing in this radical Christmas tree. There is a house we go look at every year that has truly reached epic levels of Christmas light SUPERSTAH!ness. I think they want to be on the news. They probably have already been on the news. These people have INFLATABLES. They have their own radio station that plays holiday music as you look at their house, and a special drive through driveway. What's amazing is that they are not content to rest on their laurels. Oh no. Every year they DO MORE. I think soon they will have an acre's size of lights set up. They start right after Halloween, getting it all ready! I think Yoda is new this year.

Cool Book of the Week: 'A Coyote Solstice Tale' by Thomas King and Gary Clement. Just got this hilarious little jolly from the library and I thought WOW I AM A GENIUS, because it's like, THE SOLSTICE. And by genius, I mean, I just happened upon this book and I'm actually not a genius, but wasn't that cosmic that I found this here book? I wasn't even looking for solstice books! Anyhoo, it's super cute. The rundown is that a little girl befriends Coyote and his merry band of forest animals as they are celebrating the solstice and decides to take them to...the mall, to go shopping. Coyote thinks this is all the bees knees until he realizes one has to PAY for the things you get at the mall. He also wonders if one can buy cheer and goodwill. (well if it comes in a bottle.......I'm sorry, I think my mind just went to an inappropriate place...)
