Savvy shopper Christine Mitchell is here to save your procrastinating ass
We're the kind of
people you see sprinting frantically around the mall on Christmas Eve,
mainlining food-court coffee with sweat streaming down our red faces as we

spirit...whether you're ready or not. Check out all the festively fun shit
around town this week...pub crawls, holiday trivia, gift fairs, theater, and

begins the jolliest (and undeniably the most stressful) time of the year. Especially these
days, with the economy wallowing in the shitter. So what's a cash-poor holiday
shopper to do? Well, we
suggest checking out the many handmade and DIY craft fairs popping up this week (and throughout the rest of the month.
Just when you thought the Internet had reached its full capacity of clever Antoine Dodson spoofs: we found this. And just in time for the holidays! Liberty University's choir has composed a Christmas re-mix of Dodson's impassioned rape PSA. Did we mention that Liberty University is a conservative Christian school, founded by Jerry Falwell? Hide yo' kids, hide yo' wife: the Moral Majority has discovered the power of Internet memes! We give it about two days before someone auto-tunes this video.
