Martha Stewart Book Signing Today at Noon in Century City
The last of the candy corn has been nibbled from our plastic jack-o-lanterns which means only one thing: time to lay off the weed, er, it's Christmas Gift-Buying Time.
If you start early, we've found, it doesn't get so cruddy in late December. Mostly cuz you're broke.
Surely there's a friend or family member who could use some tips on cleaning the house a bit, Mom. And what better than a $45 picture-riffic book by America's favorite parolee, Martha Stewart.
What's better is an autographed copy of said tome.
Today at noon at the Borders Books in Century City Martha will be signing her new book "Martha Stewart's Homekeeping Handbook: The Essential Guide to Caring for Everything in Your Home".
See if she will sign your book: "thanks for the shanks. xoxoxox, Martha".
