If you attended ALTAFF's The Laugh's on Us program at ALA in Chicago, you might remember the hilarious comedienne Elizabeth Beckwith, author of Raising the Perfect Child Through Guilt and Manipulation, which we've blogged about here. She had the entire room in stitches--I remember actually gasping for breath because I was laughing so hard. So of course, I was super-excited to see her holiday-themed post for The Huffington Post. It's worth a read, just for the following quote alone:
"'Christmas Town is very political, you have to kiss a lot of ass, and it's very unforgiving toward misfits. It's the dirty little secret that nobody talks about,' Blitzen remarked before sullenly finishing his drink."
