I've noticed over the past few weeks that my questions have led to a lot of me reading out loud, which in turn makes these episodes take time. I do my best to keep them under an hour, but I also love to hear from you - so I guess the only losers are those who think I talk too much. For everyone else? More fun trying to figure out how I haven't been canceled! Let's get to the stuff!

Pat rambles on getting a Christmas tree (4:52), enjoying his Sunday routine (8:58), people being overcharged (12:50), gift cards for Christmas (21:13), some new video games (35:06), a song from The Ones You Forgot (40:56), Texans at Titans for NFL Week 15 (46:33), MLB Winter Meetings notes (50:52), and more!
Jill has wanted a real tree for years, but we could never get one because we had no space in the apartment for it. Now that we have this house, we finally got the thing!
Friends, I am so glad I found this taco walk routine for my Sunday mornings. Of course I enjoy the breakfast crunchwrap, but the highlight is the walk to get it (the journey is the destination, maaannn). I encourage you to find a place that is a mile or closer to you and to give wandering over there a try tomorrow. Your heart will thank you, and your head will thank me. Enjoy (and be safe)!
Retail: "I was overcharged" (and other lies they tell)
This took a turn. I didn't mean to play a bunch of my retail hits here, but I think it worked out just fine. If you're shopping this season, make sure your ducks are in a row before you leave the store. It will make everyone happy.
Gift cards for Christmas
Thank you, everyone who made me read out loud.Whether or not you think this is a tacky present for the big day, I think we can all agree that you're a *coin* if you don't appreciate the gesture.
Speaking of appreciation, I found the Nintendo 64 kid video (the screen grab didn't look great, otherwise this would have been the picture):
Not much in the way of new games this week, but I hope you enjoy BoJack Horseman: The Detective and being a drug mule! Also I have not tried my new adapter yet, but I will shortly and let you know!
The Ones You Forgot
Thanks so much to our new friends for their song, Here Forever! I'm sorry I mucked up your solo during the a capella portion of the show, but I did all I could! Friends, check them out on all of the places! Woooo tunes!
NFL Week 15: Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans
It's weird to other people that this is their first matchup of the year, right? They have to play each other twice (division rivals), so it's odd that they're doing it within three weeks. I don't know, the NFL is weird. Go Ravens.
MLB Winter Meetings
To recap: Stephen Strasburg, Gerrit Cole, and Anthony Rendon - the biggest free agents this year - got a bunch of money. The Phillies signed a good shortstop (Didi Gregorious) coming back from injury, and some other teams made some deals. I think we could see some trades go down this week, but it's nice to see the big names off the board this early. HOTSTOVE!
And that's that, friends! Thanks for coming to the table, even if you made me read a lot of words. Next week is our Christmas show which means some fun holiday tunes and probably some yelling - come hang out and do the thing!
Until next time don't do anything I wouldn't do!
Crap open a cold one!
