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.

To Quote A Joie Item . . .
"I'd like to take a brief moment to apologize!" (imagine this said with a British accent - by our Sorry button, which says sorry ten different ways.) The Joie blogger would like to apologize . . . for somehow thinking she could take a writing intensive course at Harvard this semester during the holiday season (the Joie blogger is a Harvard Junior, back in school after a 35 year hiatus.) Why she thought it would be easy to write ten page papers and also keep everything rolling at the store, she couldn't tell you, but chances are good she won't attempt to do it again next year ! Anyway, the Christmas season is now in full swing, and we're enjoying seeing our many devoted once a year customers as well as our regular crew - but it feels like Saturday night at the most popular restaurant in town every day, so . . . we're just a little bit tired. But - we have chocolate and coffee to get us through the day - and chocolate for our customers too - so, we know we'll make it! Anyway, the last paper is due next Wednesdayand we look forward to resuming more regular posting soon!
