i feel a particularly intimate connection when reading this bit about focusing on consumption in the form of material goods but moderation on consumption in food form:

fortunately we have the fashionable bandaids for those kinds of slipups. bulky cable knit sweaters, mens plaid flannel work shirts and boyfriend jeans...
happy holidays $$$
