Dear Blog Readers,
We have become the kind of blogger we never wanted to be — the kind who has a "read our blog" button on our website but the newest post is months old. We blame Facebook for this — it's so much easier to write something there and we seem to have more followers there than we did here on the blog. Still, we can't quite bring ourselves to give it up altogether yet — so instead, we're posting this little note to explain our lack of current entries. Please do check out our facebook page, we think it's fun, if not quite as long form.
sincerely, the Joie de Blogger.

Slightly Trying Times
Here I am at the New York Gift Show. I took the bus down because of all the snow - my sister said there was parking but "bring your own shovel" and after the last few storms in Boston, I have had enough of that. Unfortunately, I lost my balance walking on the moving bus and twisted my right leg rather painfully. So I am walking the Gift Show - 12 miles of aisles according the legend - very very very slowly. I'm wondering if it will make me a better buyer - I do know that I'm spending a lot of time talking about my leg. "What's wrong?" "Did you hurt yourself?" etc etc etc . .. .. but - on the plus side, at least I can actually walk, and I can shop the show, so don't worry, Joie's supply of new merchandise is assured!
