HBO’s Best of the Local Blogs — 12/12/07

Kerri Thoreson/OnLocation North Idaho
“North Idaho lakes are beginning to freeze over, especially further north in the Panhandle,” posts Kerri Thoreson, OnLocation North Idaho. “Smaller lakes, like Upper Twin pictured here on December 8, have about an inch of ice depth. Until there’s been sustained freezing temperatures, both day and night, be cautious when out on the ice this early in the season.”

*Betcha didn’t know that Big John Rook and Alvin and the Chipmunks go way back here.

*In the category of “Are You Smarter Than A 4th-Grade Home-schooler,” A Family Runs Through It poses some tough Geography Bee questions that’d stump most adults here.

*Here In Idaho isn’t cuh-razy about romantic comedies involving Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Aniston or Diane Keaton. But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t like sexytime flicks here.

*First, you like about Santa Claus. Then, you lie about the Coeur d’Alene Resort North Pole and urban deer. Next thing you know, you’re lying to your kids all the time about Christmas, sez MamaJD, here.
