You Don't Like Nuts?
by Your Diva, Robin Pastorio-Newman

Just a word before we dash off on the four winds. Please:

  1. Call the cab. If you get tanked, Santa's going to take your driver's license, cost you a pile of money and possibly all the guilt you can eat when someone gets hurt. Keep a 20 in your pocket and swallow your pride.
  2. Visit the sick. It's a mitzvah, so take some soup and sit for a while. Spread some cheer to people who really need it and make your mother proud.
  3. The thought counts. Your Aunt Edna crocheted you another polyester vest in day-glo colors. Smile when you say, "I believe this completes my collection."
  4. Donate some blood. The Red Cross doesn't ask for much, and when you need it, they'll find blood for you. Suck it up and give them some of yours at the time of year when our nation's blood supply needs it most. Donate all you want; you'll make more.
  5. Give to the poor. Every major religion says this. Can EVERYONE be wrong? Food banks are in trouble and children don't have toys. You want to go to Heaven? Quietly help someone who needs it and shush with the "I want a receipt."

Your Darling, Your Diva, Your One True Love recognizes that 2003 was a tough year for many people. Good riddance! Don't look back! Sit up straight! You need a haircut!
Merry, happy and fabulous holidays full of joyous surprises to you. Have a cookie.
