To Do List (Things I Needed to Share)

December is rapidly approaching, and like most of you I’m going to lose all sense of reality as I attempt to keep my life on the rails while prepping for that magical holiday season that is SO magical that thinking about it makes me want to reach for the rum. What I’m trying to say is we’re all going to be getting very busy. With that in mind there are a few things I want to remind everyone, or let people know about before I forget.

First off, don’t forget that this is Movember! Have you told the man in your life that you care about his health? If not, do so now. (I’ll wait.)

Next, I just became aware of The Wild Hunt. This site is a great resource for anyone interested in non-Judeo-Christian faiths. It’s informative, well written, and just plain old cool. The man behind the site, Jason Pitzl-Waters, refuses to charge people for access to the information on his site, as is right and just in my opinion (don’t look to be paying dues for The Magical Buffet ever!). Of course running a website of a certain volume and stature requires funds (I’m small fries over here) and Jason does not want to assault his readers with advertising, which brings me to what I wanted to tell you. The Wild Hunt is doing a winter pledge drive from now until Sunday. If you want to support a website that is raising the bar on Pagan/Heathen journalism… is the time to do so. Visit The Wild Hunt to see what I’m talking about, and hopefully to make a donation to the cause.

Everyone here knows that The Magical Buffet is like a giant love fest for the Northern New York Paranormal Research Society! Anyway, my favorite paranormal peeps have relaunched their discussion boards, so if you’re looking to talk about the paranormal, visit It’s currently the only online forum I interact with.

Before everything blows up with holiday craziness, ask yourself, how can I be certain that I keep up to date with The Magical Buffet? Glad you asked. There are now five, count them FIVE, ways to stay current with the Buffet. One, My Space, two, Facebook, three, Twitter, four, subscribe, five, visit the site every day to see if anything has changed. I’m going to discourage you from option five, and encourage you to friend, fan, follow, or subscribe. Or any combination of those four.

Lastly, with the holiday baking season upon us, now seemed a good time to direct your attention to the website 3 out of the 4 cookie recipes we’re making this year came from there. It’s also home to the BEST FREAKIN’ CORN BREAD RECIPE EVER! YES I AM YELLING BECAUSE IT IS SO BLEEPIN’ GOOD! (Also noteworthy, it was Heidi Swanson, the woman behind 101 Cookbooks, who helped me learn to love beans. If you ever see this Heidi, thank you.)

I have successfully cleared my brain of much of the stuff I wanted to share with you before things got too crazy. You may all continue on with your day now.

And as always, thanks for reading!
