Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, Roomies! We hope you all are snug and cuddly in the fireplace as the wood crackles and roils around you and warms your tender hearts from the inside-out. We love smoked jerky! Oh, wait….did we write that out loud?

And come back next Wednesday, December 30th, for our companion Behind the Door episode, when we reenact the entirety of "Strings" using only sock puppets with googly eyes.
