I just now placed my first NRO Store order (who doesn’t need to keep warm, or to have a mousepad or an apron(!)–and part of my annual contribution to FEDEX. Bought some gifts–still have to return in Jan. to buy a nifty backpack and OF COURSE a coffee mug for moi, assuming I’ve not declared bankruptcy by then (just kidding). Then I’ll send the Corner guys their beer mugs, belatedly, too! If you’re sitting at home, on the net right now thinking, man, i don’t really want to brave the malls (you’d rather spend time all Christmasy, at home with your family!), go for it–buy from the NRO Store. You can still get the items by Christmas Eve!
