The couple that runs New Cool Thang has the lock on social graces in the Nacle. Kristen loves, loves, loves Christmas letters (and by "love" she means "hate") from pretentious snobs who trumpet the past year's accomplishments with the annual yuletide letter. She should write up a snippity-snot-snobby letter heralding their success as internationally know Nacle bloggers and renowned advocates of Peach Stealing Monkeys. That will be sure to inspire envy in all recipients. I know it would get me where it counts.

But, alas, Geoff has concluded the family efforts should be focused on search-engine-driven readers of the future, because the power of his written words is so much greater than those he speaks. I think Geoff has a Moses complex. Does he have a brother named Aaron? Anyway, as such is the case, the imminent Johnston family Christmas letter will take the form of a blog article, and all of their current real life analog neighbors, relatives, and acquaintances will be shunned so as to maximize the amount of time they can invest into future Google-powered blog readers.

Peach Stealing Monkeys

Sounds like a great name for a band, not to mention, it was by stealing peaches that Monkey became a god rather than just an immortal.

Just posting to encourage you onward.

It's not a Moses complex, it's a blog ninja complex. All I can say is you better guard the peaches, snarkinator! (I've trained the boy in the ninja arts too you know.)

Um, Geoff, I was neutered a long time ago by the vet. I'm a chihuahua, remember?

Just found your blog, Snarkernacle, and I haven't stopped laughing since!

Snarkperson, It would really make my holiday season if you would send me a Christmas letter. If that's too much to ask then maybe you could just do a Christmas post here at snarkernacle. A picture of the wife/husband and pups would also be appreciated.

Just think about what all of your future descendants will think of it when they see it in 2045!

Snark, regardless of what the vet did to you, he failed to neuter you ...
