And just like that, summer is a distant memory, autumn begins to fade and winter is, in the words of Ned Stark, coming. But in New Mexico, winter will get here a lot quicker than Westeros’ (which has taken, what? four seasons so far?) and with it will come that dark and dangerous trial of human souls we call the Holidays.
Yep, soon enough, you’ll be stressing about cooking, cleaning, traveling and just what the hell you’re going to give to your ungrateful relatives and, oh, yeah, you’d better get something for the people you actually like, too.
Never fear, the Alibi is here.
