10 things to do when left alone on a major holiday

1. Watch dog show on TV.

2. Subsist solely on leftovers - no cooking whatsoever except possible soup-making.

3. Work on photo albums.

4. Contemplate favorite idle fantasy: being at the center of a Christopher Meloni and Marc "Sparky" Bartolomeo sandwich.

5. Throw tennis ball for Cairo.

6. Nap.

7. Peruse Hugh F.-W. Meat Book.

8. Listen to howling winter gale (which kicked up, as if on cue, at about 4 this morning and hasn't subsided since).

9. Turn on Christmas lights for the first time this season.

10. Knit.
