Seasons Greetings!!!

I’ve finished all of my work waaaaaay ahead of schedule, and I’m shutting down until after New Year’s. (I know I’LL be here…)

  • I sent you all an E-Card for the Holidays… Pick it up!
  • Erika turns seven on January 2nd…don’t forget to wish her a Happy Birthday

KUDOS to EToy Agent Zai making it clear in Wired News yesterday, that Etoy appreciates the well-meaning offers from hackers, but want to win the “etoy war” with protests, press conferences and in court…in a word: LEGALLY.

There is nothing more powerful than martyrs and sympathy….and that’s why so many people are behind them! They stand a good chance of their site being returned to them on December 27th, criminal activity will only make it worse.

By the way eToys stock has plummeted to $37.56 per share. The LA Times has no idea why…

Wired News reports today that celebrities and major Internet businesses are rallying behind etoy. In fact, we’re all invited to a Press Conference Monday at the Museum of Modern Art (11 West 53rd St.) in New York City, at 6:30 PM. I’ll be there in spirit as our car broke down Wednesday….


Speaking of which…it’s been a very weird week. The night the car broke down, we were on route to Christina’s Christmas performance at school. Carole was planning on picking up all of our layaways at the department store on the way back…

The next day, she called about the layaways and was informed by a clerk that all of our Christmas gifts have been returned to the shelves and the money can’t be returned until December 26th….

This year, Christmas will come a little late for the Brooks kids…they’re going to learn that Christmas is about family, togetherness, and an empty tree…a perfect end for a fucked-up, almost surreal week….

See you all on January 3rd!!!!
