Alison's Gingerbread Pyramid / Welcome Josh!

With Christmas now just ten days away, there's a lot going on here at the Lab. Response to the Holiday cards we mailed out last week has been awesome, and sales have been wonderfully brisk. Lots of folks are taking advantage of our Holiday Special, too! So we're feeling good, but we're also very very busy.

But busy as we are, we're still finding time for some holiday fun. For example, check out this picture of the wonderful gingerbread pyramid-house Alison made this week. Isn't it grand?

Also, we have some big news this week! Last week, we announced that Russell was stepping down after 2 years as our Rabbit Coordinator. Well, I'm happy to say we've already found his replacement! His name is Josh Drobina and he's been a Rabbit for years... we've been getting to know him at Origins and other conventions, and a couple of months ago he came to visit us for a full weekend of making tie-dyes. So when Russell suggested Josh as his replacement, we immediately liked the idea. Yesterday he came out for an official interview, and by the end of the day he was already working for us!

Here you see Josh sitting in on his first Looney Labs staff meeting. (He's the one in the middle, between Alison & Marlene.)

Josh will be taking over the things Russell had been doing - like approving rabbit bios and point requests - and helping us plan and run conventions... plus a whole lot more, since he will be working full time! Yay! That means he can also be our Travel and Event Coordinator!

Josh lives in Athens Ohio, so he will be working for us remotely... but that's fine, since our company is all about telecommuting. After all, his predecessor lives in Florida!

Anyway, welcome aboard, Josh! We're really looking forward to the help you'll be able to give us!

AndyThanks for reading, have a great week, and Don't Forget To Shop!

Thought Residue
The Japanese version of Fluxx has been nominated for Best Japanese Game of 2005!

I was pleased to see the American Pavilion from Expo '67 featured this week on the Amazing Race. I've long been wondering what remained of the structure, after hearing it had been damaged by a fire; apparently the skin burned off, but the skeleton of the Biosphere is still standing, and it looked wonderful. I'm really looking forward to visiting Montreal someday...
"The texture was both waxy and filling-looseningly chewy. This this? ... was the sweetmeat that led Edmund to betray his siblings and doomed Aslan to death on a stone slab? Watching the movie last week, I cringed watching Edmund push piece after squidgy red piece into his drooling mouth, shuddering to think that children in theaters everywhere were bound to start yammering for the candy and that on Christmas morning or Hanukkah nights, their faces would crumple with disappointment as their teeth sank into the vile jelly they had thought they wanted." -- Liesl Schillinger, "The Lion, the Witch, and the Really Foul Candy: In pursuit of Turkish Delight" [I too was terribly disappointed by Turkish Delight after a decades-long wait to sample it, when I bought some in England in 1993.]

"A friend introduced me to Fluxx, which I instantly fell in love with, and then I found you at Origins this past summer. My life hasn't been the same since!! You guys are the GREATEST!!" -- Diane S. of Saint Louis, comments with order #80430
