May your holiday season by happy and bright.

P.S.—For a nerdy holiday treat, check out the 12 Days of Doctor Who.
To bring you this important message about Nerd News:
Thanks to this week being absolutely crazy—why you gotta be so jam-packed, Christmastime?—I ran out of time last night to finish today's post. But I'll have it done by tomorrow morning; I promise!
To tide you over until then, I give you this:
I feel like I've told this story a hundred times since last Thursday—sorry to those of you who heard it more than once ... or twice ... or three times—but I'm going to tell it again.
Last Thursday (my birthday), a coworker was late because she was "rescuing puppies" from her yard. While leaving to head to work that morning, she'd noticed a mama dog and her two puppies out in the cold. Alex (my coworker) took them into a vet and then came into work. She sent around photos of the little family, and I immediately was interested in keeping them from a trip to the humane society.
We have a ...
As I might have mentioned in previous posts, December is my favorite month of the year. Even if you're not a huge Christmas celebrator (or someone who has a birthday this month *cough*), I think you can admit that there's something about this time of year that's just a little more jolly than the rest of the 11 months.
As part of celebrating the season, I like to create and mail Christmas cards—Curtismas cards, if you will. *ba-dum-tss* I also love receiving cards, so ... it's time yet again for the annual Curtismas Card Exchange!
If you're interested in receiving a card from The Murtis this holiday season, please fill out this form. There's a place on the bottom of the form for you to fill in your email address if you're willing to send a card in return; I'll email you our mailing address once I receive your form.
Here's a look at past cards:
Well friends, we've reached it—one month left in 2013. A month filled with holidays and good cheer. I've always loved December, and although this year has absolutely flown by, I'm excited it's here yet again.
To cap off the year, let me introduce Mr. December: Jake Gyllenhaal.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day (in the U.S.), which is a day to reflect on the many wonderful things we have in our lives.
I was inspired by one of the ideas I posted in last week's DIY-deas to create a little printable to use during our Thanksgiving meal, and, of course, I wanted to share it here. (A printer-friendly version with two on one page is available via the link below each image; I also created a black and white version: one-up | full sheet.)
1. My family.What about you, friends? What are 10 things you're thankful for?
2. Marvel movies.
3. Friends—both offline and on.
4. Boyfriend cardigans.
5. Good health.
6. My Keurig coffee maker.
7. A home that is warm, dry and filled with things that make me smile.
8. My TBR (to-be-read) pile.
9. A secure job.
10. The Internet
Happy Day of the Doctor, everyone! I woke up this morning and found my inbox had been inundated with a lot of Doctor Who-related sale emails (mostly for T-shirts, but that's OK by me). I'm sure many of you get the same emails, but I thought I'd write up a short post to get all of the sales in one place.
Today seems to be the perfect opportunity to buy gifts for all of the Whovians in your life—or, you know, buy yourself a little something. You deserve it!
As a disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with any of these sites, I merely wanted to pass the savings on to my friends! Also, if you see an asterisk (*) next to a website below, that means I've bought from them before and would recommend their products. If there's no asterisk, you're buying at your own risk. (That sounds much more ominous than I meant it to.)
As always with T-shirt of the day sites, these sales will only be available for a limited time. If you miss a design that you really want today, you can likely find it online later (often on RedBubble), but for not as cheap. Most of these sites don't just sell T-shirts anymore, but I wasn't sure what else to classify them as.
