"Twas the Night Before Christmas and how creative I have become....

as my little one still worries that Santa Claus won't find our house. We have decorated a tree outside, mommy made a call the "Santa Claus Mommy Hotline", I have assured her that his GPS and Night Vision Goggles are in tact and still worry, worry, worry. It was Christmas Eve we were coming home from Grandmas house where the green chili stew and posole smells are still wafering in my nose. Little one worries and says I hope we have done enough mommy. I remind her she has to get right to bed.…

La Bella Luna

Did anybody notice the incredible weather we had on Christmas Eve? I love the moon and I love looking at it, and it looked trully magnificent on Christmas Eve. My family walks around Old Town and the Country Club area on Christmas Eve, It is a family tradition. It has always been the nicest time except when my friend Russell caught on fire posing for the camera (he sat to close to a luminaria). It is still the best story yet...maybe when I was in a wheel chair comes a close second, people… Continue

Have a quiet and pleasant Christmas...but

NOB HILL-- But if you have come to the DCF today searching for excitement with a holiday theme, you might want to try this recycled tale from the sidewalks of Central Ave. It's a trip back to The a time when The Book Stop was still located next door to the Flying Star, and Christmas seemed to have a dark side. I called it…

Who Said You Have to Leave Your House to Buy Local?

Lots of things make me appreciate Albuquerque but recently I fell in love all over again when I clicked on 'shop local' at and typed in 'Albuquerque'. There are some amazing folks doing amazing things here in ABQ and selling them on etsy.

I've known about etsy for a long time but never checked it out in depth until after I went to the… Continue

Morning Fix: At the Christmas Party Hop


Added by Somegye on December 24, 2007 at 5:42am — 2 Comments


I'm so bored. I know, "if you're bored then you're boring" and all that. But I'm bored. Holidays are boring. What do people do in Albuquerque? I used to know. But I have become nearly comatose in the last year.

For instance, if I were to go out right now on a Sunday night would there be any place to go?

Ok, I'm done.

How To for the Luminaria Newbie

If Martha Stewart made Christmas Eve luminarias with those guys from Hey Jhonny, this could be her user guide.


  • paper lunch bags

  • sand (or kitty litter)
  • votive candles (not tea candles)


  1. Ply your holiday guests with brewski and start folding.
  2. Each bag gets folded…

The Rooster on Atlantic Avenue

The Rooster on Atlantic Avenue

I don’t know if Barelas has ever been without roosters. In my imagination, chickens arrived here shortly after Don Pedro de Varela put roots into this soil in 1662 and have maintained a presence in Barelas ever since.

When we moved here 11 years ago, members of my family mentioned hearing roosters crowing every morning. (Even…

Don't give the police any reason to pull you over this holiday

My friend got pulled over, cuffed and arrested on suspicion of DWI this morning, December 22 at about 1:30 am. Despite the fact that he was not drunk and completely cooperative, he got nothing but attitude from the cop, even though he passed a breathalyzer test twice at the station. After he passed the test the second time, the cop released him, telling my friend that it was his lucky day because the machine didn't appear to be working right. The cop was just not willing to believe that he had… Continue

Where Your Decorations Went?

Last year someone left a Holiday display in the park. I snapped some photos before someone else took it down/home. I know there are better ways to spread the Holiday Cheer but this one cracked me up.

Oh Christmas Tree...

“Just go to Wal Mart?!!!” —That was me, yesterday morning, replying to a certain someone’s suggestion that I “just go to Wal Mart”. To me, that’s the rough equivalent of telling me to go to hell. And that’s not four days before Christmas. That’s any other time of the year.

However, I never have been able to say “no”, especially to this certain someone, so off I went, with my three restless <sarcasam> little angels…

Watch this Video and Make a Dollar for ArtStreet

NOB HILL--"Can't we all just get along?" Well if the cause is good enough, sure.

Gifts. Last minute and local.

Hey, does anyone want to buy me this bicycle tee for Christmas? Oh wait. it's not about me.

I'm still tracking Christmas gifts for my 5 siblings and 7 nieces/nephews. It's not looking pretty or particularly innovative at this point. Local Etsy might just save my ass with these offerings by Albuquerque artisans.…
