I didn’t watch Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2015 with Ryan Seacrest, so I missed Idina Menzels’ performance of the ubiquitous “Let It Go.”
Rumor has it she botched the final high note.
(Haters on Twitter made sure that everyone knew.)
So Idina went on Twitter and defended herself, saying she is ‘more than one note.’
I can understand wanting to stand up to the backlash, but laughing at the sour note might be more effective. Audiences love when people in the public eye can be self-deprecating.
Plus, why give nameless, faceless trolls the satisfaction of seeing you rattled?
Let it go, Idina.

I may have mentioned a time or two that I grew up in Kentucky.
Kentucky is known for a lot of things –both good and bad — but one of the truly exceptional things we make is bourbon whiskey.
Maker’s Mark, to be specific.
And at this time of year, true aficionados treat their Maker’s to a holiday gift or two.
Have you bought your bourbon a little something-something for Christmas?

When you travel for business, you pack a lot. You get it down to a science.
I can pack for most trips 10 minutes before I leave.
Personal trips are a completely different story.
I don’t know exactly what I am going to be doing every hour of the trip. There is no ‘uniform’ that I can put on for each activity. Plus, my vacations are usually a bit longer…and I have to pack for the dog, too.
And he likes to have a lot of choices.

Rory and I took our morning walk at 6am, so it was still quite dark on the streets of the Upper West Side.
Along the way we encountered two holiday visitors who I’m sure were supposed to be cheery and bright…but in the morning shadows were kinda lurking and sinister.
They were both five feet tall, too!
What do you think? Do these blowies make your holidays merry and bright? Or remind you of Chucky’s Christmas kin?
Let’s put a pin in it, shall we?

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at the Egg!
I could watch this all night…
And to think — it’s selling electronics in my neighborhood.
