Emily gave me a subscription to Sidekick News for Christmas so I could keep up on "Andrew being fired" news. Nothing yet but the investigative piece about missing person Jennifer Andrews was compelling. And I saw an ad in the back from someone looking to buy a house in Port Townsend. Don't worry, Alison Rosen, we'll find you a nice place to live before you start your new job.
On one of the replay shows Luke talked about going to Jo-Ann's Fabrics. He made two common mistakes. One? It's Jo-Ann Fabrics. Two? Yes, you are probably the only straight man in the building, but it is a building full of people who hang out at Jo-Ann Fabrics. Better to send the wife and enjoy at least 40 minutes alone at home, where you also know you are the only straight man in the building. So get busy, son.

Dear Friendos, during the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it's easy to forget to take the time to raise a toast to the important things in life. Things like:
#AToastTo The Tens of Listeners… who continue to listen to TBTL despite all the barriers Luke and Andrew create to enjoying the show.
#AToastTo Elevens… who don't even like TBTL, but are forced to listen, despite all the barriers Luke and Andrew create to enjoying the show.
#AToastTo Andrew… for apologizing profusely during the show, and then later apologizing for all the apologizing.
#AToastTo Susie Burbank… who never met a deal she didn't like or a carton of milk she didn't freeze (and forget to thaw out)
#AToastTo Rudy… For barking incessantly during the show, and often being the only interesting part of said episode.
Got one to add? Head over to twitter and use the hashtag #AToastTo and we'll see it and retweet it!
The 6th and 7th Seasons of "Mad About You" on DVD? Not available.
A couple of yam bags? Out of season (sadly).
Well then, here's what you're gonna do: surprise someone with a "Random Act of Wine-ness" by grabbing a bottle of Chateau Ste. Michelle wine and giving it to them out of the blue! Look at how happy Morea was after listener Max surprised her with a "RaoW" (Random Act of Wineness… we know, the acronym needs a little help).
If you want to make someone happy, and support TBTL, get out there and get your "RaoW" on! Then, let us know how it went on Twitter and Facebook. Use the hashtag #AtoastTo so we can find you. At the end of the month we'll pick our favorite story and the winner will get a spa gift certificate and a chance to come on TBTL and tell their story!
Drink every time Andrew portrays himself as a victim.

The Alamo Drafthouse is a badass Austin-based chain of theaters, not the mom & pop hanging a sheet in a parking lot and making shadow puppets business the boys made it out to be. Until you've gone to one of these theaters and dumped gourmet food all over your lap while Cullen watches to make sure you don't fall asleep during The Dark Knight you can't judge the Alamo Drafthouse. They are the geniuses who brought you this.
Non-sportballers and those easily bored stop reading now. Just in case TBTL Extra Pointless doesn't get around to a fantasy football update tonight, ol' Clip Clop mopped the virtual floor with Luke's Tragic! last weekend 233-159. What's up next for my Cuyahoga Clambake? Appropriately, it's Andrew himself. Instead of a catrolling, Hodor Kotb and his Factory of Sadness will be getting a steamrolling this Sunday.
