I love love LOVE them. Apparently, it's an original work by Stine (as in "Christine") Bauer who is/was married to the original Eddie Bauer? (I didn't know there really WAS an Eddie Bauer because everybody knows that Ann Taylor isn't real. You knew that, right? That's one of the first things they teach you there during your first shift on the floor.)
The even have the image on serving pieces:

But, I would love to switch it out with the winter image. I would try to use the shopping bag for this purpose, but even if my scanner could handle it, I don't want "Eddie Bauer JOY!" printed on it. Maybe I'll wait for the cards to go half off and then see what I can do? Any thoughts? I know that I'm publicly discussing possible dabblings in copyright infringement, but I'm not planning on selling the image. Rather, I'm planning on spending too much money on enlarging the image, framing it (however shoddily), and placing it in my kitchen.
Whatevs. I know I have a lot of free space in my brain if this is the stuff I'm pondering.
Tomorrow, I need to get started on some of the Thanksgiving sides that I'm bringing to my mom's on Thursday. I'm actually going to bake a pumpkin pie rather than buy one. (Somehow, we overlooked the pumpkin pie at last year's dinner and I have since sworn that this will never, EVER happen again.) Don't be too impressed: I bought the pie crust and I'm using canned pumpkin. No Martha Magic in this house.
You know that grad school has scarred you for life (or a really long time, at least) when Thanksgiving weekend rolls around, and there's a voice in your head that goes, "How far am I on my term papers? I've finished at least one of them right? Do I have all the books I need to write another 10 pages this weekend? I REALLY don't want to go down Philly this weekend ... Ohhhh right .... I graduated. MONTHS AGO. I haven't written a term paper since Spring 2008. Jesus Christ. Nevermind."
HA! oh well. So, I'll see you all for NBT tomorrow? You know who you are.
PS--big shout out to Ama who has finished writing her master's thesis once and for frickin all! YAAAAAYYYY!!!!!!!!!!
