Three totally unrelated updates to past posts--also known as "how to write a blog post when you can't sustain a train of thought."

First, check this out. Santa wrote a response to Sky's letter.

You remember the letter (click here for the previous post):

We dropped it in the red mailbox at the historical museum, and this is what we got back:

(click on the image to enlarge it).

I'm pretty sure this convinced Sky. At least for this year. Thanks, awesome letter writer! You should've seen the sheepish grin on his face when I read it to him.

Second, here's Day Two of gluten-free lunch:

They really liked the waffles. Obviously, I can't keep this pace with each waffle costing approximately a dollar, but at least it will be fun while it lasts. Once the waffles are gone, we will go back to rice balls and octopus hot dogs (Google it. Trust me).

Third, I never did hear back from TOMS. Click here for the story about the shoes if you haven't already seen it.

I don't know about you, but I kind of hate it when my supposedly socially conscious retailer ignores me. Not sure how you can claim to want to make a difference while being totally unwilling to engage with customer concerns. But maybe that's just me. Meanwhile, Frontier Airlines was awesome in handling this (link) complaint. So, fly Frontier, but don't buy TOMS. And, please, feel free to complain to TOMS directly. I have the address if you need it.
