Faux-Prah Winner and my ramblings

We have a winner for our 2nd Annual Faux-Prah giveaway! In reality you are all winners in my book and I will happily send out autographed pictures of Rupert or Jane as consolation prizes to all of those who request it.  
Our winner this year is..... 
 Jody from Me and My Three Boys who loves driving around and looking at lights with her family. I'm dying to know what she decides to buy from Amazon.com.
Do you know what the Amazon delivery man brought me today? Fashion Plates!  Did you have them as a kid?  I loved them and obviously I still love them because I ripped open the package and played with them right away instead of putting them aside for AK for Christmas.  I feel like a terrible mother, but I've decided that I need to order another set so that we can play together.   My friends and I were talking about fashion plates the other night (it was their idea to get them) and I remembered that after I would make my fashion plate creation, I would think, "Wow, someone dial Bob Mackie, this is the worlds greatest dress and it deserves to be put into production!"   Today when I was playing with them I thought, "Wow, I missed my calling, I'm not an accountant... I'm a fashion designer!" 
On a totally different note, Mr. Man and I are having a heated discussion about eggnog in our house.  He and Mr. Boy are passionate about eggnog.   It's one of the best part of the holiday seasons for them.  Mr. Man has made the argument that eggnog is a man's thing and he has never known a woman who likes eggnog.   I can't think of a single friend of mine who likes eggnog and I'm wondering if he's right.  So tell me your thoughts on eggnog... Love it, Tolerate it, or Loathe it.

Also in the love it camp - although it must be watered down a bit with milk. (Judging from your comments this appears to not be a gender-based issue ;)
