News For Nerds: The Celebrity Advice Edition
In commercials we often hear "consult your doctor." Well, apparently a lot of people consult Suzanne Somers. For some reason our brains are wired to believe health advice from movie stars and pop singers . . . which makes no sense at all. This week's News For Nerds looks into this weird phenomenon.

Plus, I hate to scare you just before the holidays, but there's a monster volcano pulsating beneath Yellowstone National Park, and when it blows, it will make for a very, very bad day in Denver. (PS, it's just about due for an eruption.)

It's not all gloom and doom, though. You'll also be treated this week to a gorgeous Celestial Holiday Wreath, a sweet gift courtesy of the Hubble Space Telescope and a particular star.

To see it all, just follow this digital wormhole right here. It's time to get your nerd on!

Holiday Parking Lot Rules

•If you pass an open spot, you cannot ‘back-up’ to get it. Once it’s passed, it’s a free spot again.

 

•People who walk to their cars to put packages away, must let cars waiting for that spot know what their intentions are. Don’t make them wait, when you knew all along that you were not leaving.

•When you get into your car to leave & people are waiting for your spot. You must leave within one minute (no calls, no make-up....JUST LEAVE!)

•Taking up more than one spot is strictly prohibited!

•If two cars are waiting for the same parking spot, the car that arrived 1st gets the spot. Regardless if the car backing out of the spot blocks the car that arrived 1st from entering right away.

•If you pull into a open spot and find out that the spot in front of you is open as well and there is no parking blocks, you can not pull forward. (Dom disagrees strongly with this rule.)

•No ‘backing’ into parking spaces.

•If two people arrive at an open parking space at the same time, the first one to use their turn signal gets it.

•Going the wrong way in parking lots with ‘One-Ways’ is strictly prohibited.

•When waiting for a parking spot to open, you must give the person backing out enough room to do so.

•If you have a very, very small car, don’t pull it all the way in. Leave your back bumper out there even with the other big cars. Sometimes we think we see an open space and drive like crazy to get there only to find one of those dinky little cars.

December Book Club Selection: The Stupidest Angel
The Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror
By Christopher Moore

Reviewed by Dom

Christopher Moore books are not for everyone, that’s for sure. Some people are offended by his take on certain subjects, and some just don’t share his particular sense of humor.

His work resonates with me, though. I list his most famous title, Lamb, in my top five of favorite books ever. One of the characters from that book, the archangel Raziel, makes a return visit as the titular character in this month’s book club selection.
 
 
In fact, fans of Christopher Moore will find several characters popping up from some of his earlier work. Moore returns to the fictional town of Pine Cove, California, and brings along some familiar folks, putting them in new situations.

One of those involves a woman, Lena Marques, who offs her ex, Dale Pearson, with a shovel . . . but the deed is witnessed by 7-year-old Josh Barker. What makes it worse, Dale happened to be wearing a Santa suit from his lodge, so little Josh is convinced that Santa has been knocked off.

So what does Josh do? He asks for one Christmas wish: to get Santa back.

Enter poor Raziel, who is able to grant this one wish. The problem is, Dale isn’t the only stiff brought back from the grave. You can imagine how the good people of Pine Cove react to that.

If you’re looking for a quirky, funny Christmas read, we’ve got the book for you. If you’re a bit more traditional about your holiday reading, perhaps you should dig out The Gift of the Magi.

As always, our Dom and Jane Book Club selection is available at all three locations of The Tattered Cover Book Store. Just be sure to mention the D&J Book Club when you check out, and you’ll get The Stupidest Angel for 20 percent off.

Merry (eerie) Christmas!
Dom
