Post Christmas DWI Checkpoints

Coping after Christmas? There will be DWI checkpoints in the Northwest Command Area (I-40 area) on December 26 and 27 starting around 10 pm and going till 3 am. If you picked up our Boozy Gift Guide, maybe you'll remember I wrote about how to get home safely after a night of shenanigans (aka getting sloshed).

You can bookmark it, cut it out of the paper and put it in your wallet or bra, write it down on your arm, hell, get it tattooed on your arm; just don't drive drunk!

Stay safe and happy holidays, you noobs.

Straight from Santaland

Ah, the holiday season. A time for love, sharing, and generosity towards our fellow man. Alas, it is really a season of the blatant and rather terrifying corporate takeover of the once happy holidays, when mankind turns into a creature of cutthroat consumerism, who is generally cold and much poorer than he'd like to be.

The Santaland Diaries show you this in bulk; these creatures are all you see as a department store elf. David Sedaris chronicles the story of a slacker turned into Santa's little helper, the play's been given great reviews by all the good New York people: the NY Times, Newsday and The New Yorker.

It's now or never, folks, the show plays weekend only. Buy your tickets for only $10 at the South Broadway Cultural Center (1025 Broadway Blvd SE). Curtain is at 8pm on the Friday, Dec. 18 and Saturday, Dec. 19 Check out our Facebook for a chance to win two free tickets to the show.

Holiday Blues

It’s that time of year, people! We’re smack-dab in the middle of the holiday season. A lot of emotions surface right now because it’s the end of the year and people are going over everything that’s happened to them: the radical things, bogus things, and the icky, dumb grody shit. I’ve noticed a lot of people are having a really hard time right now, and that’s totally okay. It’s okay to not be okay! And it’s definitely okay to be okay! I got you, fam. But here are my super extra special, personal (and, like, serious) self-care tips for how to deal with the Holiday Blues.

-Don’t be so hard on yourself. Would you criticize the person you love the most for doing these things? Um, no. So take a chill pill, dude. You’re just, like, dust floating in the wind or something.

-Stop hanging around lame, shitty people. I don’t care if they’re friends or family, you don’t deserve that. If someone makes you gag, then don’t fuck with that shit. And also if that means being alone on a dumb, consumerist holiday, who cares! You totally deserve to feel safe and not miserable.

-Keep in mind that everyone is going through a lot right now (and also always, I guess). So like, you don’t need to be nice to everyone but you definitely don’t need to be mean or rude, either.

-Drink some water and have a snack! If you think you’ll feel better eating something healthy, then do that. But, like, if you think you’ll feel better eating junk then you should totally do that! If that doesn’t work, try a drink like water or juice or tea. Don’t overthink calories or anything, ‘cause you need to eat and drink to live! My favorites are cinnamon vanilla tea, dried seaweed and dark chocolate covered toffee sprinkled with pistachio bits. Yum!

-Things will get shitty before they improve, you’ll be a-okay. As someone who has had bouts of severe depression since I was 11, I pinky promise, it definitely gets better. It’s just like, a lot of things suck right now. But whatever!

-TREAT YO’SELF, boo, ‘cause you are a bitchin’, beautiful Mx and you totally, totally, deserve the best from and for yourself!

-I love you!

The Daily Word In Pissing Kate Middleton Off, Dogs Dressed Up As Turkeys And A 6-Year-Old Girl's Skateboarding Posse

The Daily Word

It’s Wednesday November 26th and this rude ass storm is ruining Thanksgiving!

Meanwhile in Southern California, three six-year-old girls are cooler than we will ever be, and skateboard all the damn time.

In Pakistan, 20-year-old Aansoo Kohli teaches 150 children in a shed, isn’t paid for the job, and is finishing her Bachelors Degree,

And if you’re American and you're reading this from your tent outside Best Buy while you wait for a 99 cent TV, joke's on you! You’re doing it wrong!

A local “cafeteria angel” is paying off student lunch debts at elementary schools anonymously and depositing money into needy families' bank accounts, because apparently some people care about other people?

And while the rest of us are consuming questionable amounts of alcohol this “holiday” season and arguing with our racist in-laws, these dogs are all that really matter this Thanksgiving.

Americans can't do anything right. We can’t even dress ourselves! Which really pisses Kate Midleton off. C'mon, you guys! Get it together!

Merry happy Thanksgiving, or whatever. Don’t drink and drive.

Light Up the Night

We don't usually get fantastic winter snowfalls that look like an L.L.Bean catalog, but we do have the River of Lights. Beginning this Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m., get the family to the ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden (2601 Central NW). Thousands of holiday lights are on display in the shape of penguins, lions, dinosaurs, polar bears, birds, fish and other specimens from our natural world.
