Did You Say Five DAYS?

Please tell me I'm not the only one sitting here thinking, "OMG! Five days till Christmas!" (Yes, ever since that Allstate commercial where the guy declares "OMG! Becky's not even HOT!" I think OMG.)

Does everyone have their shopping done? They're turkey (or vegetarian/vegan equivalent) bought? Or maybe you don't do turkey, you save that one for Thanksgiving? Tree up, watered, and hair-sprayed (thank you, Mythbusters). Kids home for the break, declaring they'll never go to school again? And are you rambling on a blog, because deep inside you're panicking because there's ONLY FIVE DAYS LEFT!

Deep breaths. Deeeep breaths...

Okay. Have I mentioned we LOVE Mythbusters (caution: auto-play video alert) in the Bell household? M wants to be one when he grows up. He even made his own Buster out of cardboard boxes with paper arms, feet and head. So to distract ourselves from the OMG! FIVE DAYS! we watched  the holiday special they did where they made a Rube Goldberg device:

Now M keeps sneaking down the basement, cackling like Adam. I'm afraid to go down there. But hey, it might make me forget... you know.
