Does anyone remember this vintage blog about family xmas drinking?

I remember but cannot find a link to an old and entertaining weblog -- and I'm just interested in his yearly holiday photo albums.

Random details I remember:

- I think he posted these once a year for a few years in a row.
- Heavy holiday drinking, and photos to back it up.
- Family shenanigans included the father digging out some old Halloween costumes and making people wear them.
- Mother made jello shots once.
- Stepbrother went fishing stoned and maybe in a yellow raincoat.
- I may have mentioned lots of family drinking together.
- Southern?
- One year he posted a series of photos of weird little holiday knickknacks his mom had around the house, portraying them in an unflattering light. (This is the thing I want to laugh about again. He called one of them a homunculus. I have recently Googled "christmas homunculus" and cannot recommend it.)

It was really funny, I swear.

I think the blog is no more, but there's a book: https://www.amazon.com/Diary-Indignities-Patrick-Hughes/dp/B005M4TBPE

The Wayback machine has has another blog by the same person "In which Bad News Hughes transforms himself from a grotty, slimy caterpillar into a creepy, dusty moth."

Dear Patrick, on the extremely off chance that you see this here, I am very sorry for focusing only on your holiday albums -- I forgot that you had a lot of other great stuff as well. Thanks for many laughs. Wish I could find you on Twitter.
