It’s that time of year!

It’s time for that holiday season media staple I love to hate; the ubiquitous news segments about airport congestion. Seriously, who gives a shit?

    Uhhh, the people flying? 🙂

    Experiencing it directly, I’m pretty positive that they’re already quite aware of what they’re facing.

    I’m a big fan of the “War on Christmas” bullshit.

    Another one of my personal favorites, as well. I think it’s John Gibson’s full time job around the holiday season.

    Ahhh, well we stayed at home for Thanksgiving. My darling bride thought that she’d have to go into work (she was on call from 3:00 PM to 7:30 PM), but they discharged eight patients, so she didn’t get called. Everyone was home, the table was laden with food, and a fine time was had by all.

    Next they’ll be running the annual “the shelves are bare at the local foodbank” stories too. 🙂

    Well, I’m not going to go and start second-guessing the local food bank. It’s just that with my travel arrangements being what they are I don’t find it necessary to hear about everyone else’s. Yes, I’m very aware that traffic is crummy around the holidays. Who doesn’t know this already?

    So what’s your favorite left-over, all? I’ve been eating hot turkey sandwiches for the past three days and I’ve got no problem with that at all. Plus, I could eat pumpkin pie with every meal and never complain.

    Anyone who likes pumpkin pie can’t be all bad! Edy’s makes a pumpkin ice cream seasonally, though I haven’t seen it this year. And we have pumpkin chocolate chip cookies around here fairly ferquently.

    Turkey sandwiches, with mayo, salt and jellied cranberry sauce are the ticket.

    Well, if you live in Seattle, you get a simultaneous airport report about holiday congestion AND the War on Christmas because of one person who complained about Christmas trees in the airport. Lucky!
