a starfish and waffles christmas card

The dedicated staff of felix's daily starfish and waffles wish you all a safe, warm, and very Merry Christmas.

We didn't grow up with very many holiday traditions in our household. But that's alright because it's allowed us to start our own traditions ... like, for instance, the Christmas Pineapple. We're pretty sure that, one day, sweet, juicy pineapple rings will become as synonymous with Christmas as Santa, reindeer, and getting. Pictured above from left to right: The Inaugural Christmas Pineapple, me (Felix), and the Editor-in-Chief and Chairman (Chairbear?) of starfish and waffles.


  1. Merry Christmas to you too!

  2. Happy Holidays to you and the bear!

  3. Great photo. I love the toque.
    Merry Christmas to you too.


  4. chair Bear, ha ha! Does this title not insult his editorial machismo?

    So nice to finally see an up-close picture! Too very cute!

    Happy Pineapple Day to All, and to all a good night!

    (still grinning...)

  5. Merry Christmas, Seasons Greetings, and Happy Pineapple Day to everyone!

    And -c, yeah, the editor didn't take kindly to the "chairbear" comment (I can't believe he missed it ... he must have been drunk on Shamrockhoppers at the time) and he subsequently docked my pay for the rest of the year! He's a tough little guy ...


  6. I went to look at xmas trees today for possible purchase. they wanted US$10 per foot. I think you've convinced my to get a pineapple and decorate it for the holidays instead!

    And, apologies to the editor- I didn't mean to say that "Chair Bear" was not a fine, respectable title.. I only meant (but failed to explain) that I associate it with "Care Bear" which was a cute, childhood, cuddly cartoon along the lines of a modern-day "Tella Tubby".
    So, I've changed my mind, and think that the editor indeed deserves the position of "ChairBear".
    (but, don't get me wrong: that doesn't mean the writer's pay should not be docked).

  7. Felix,
    Your friends from home miss you....will you return? So many conversations we need to have.....Call,email,send a strippergram....let me know if your around for the holidays.

  8. -c ... Hey! Although you can't see me, you'd better believe you're getting the ChairBearStare (ChairBearGlare?) of a lifetime right about now. It won't be long until you're forced to submit and retract your statement about my pay. However, I am very proud of you for ditching the $10 per foot Xmas tree in favour of a Holiday Pineapple. Yet another convert for the Christmas Pineapple Ring!

    Kyle ... I'm around. Email me at since I seem to have misplaced your phone / email / strippergram-address.
