Happy Festivus, everyone!

http://vancouver.metblogs.com/archives/images/2006/12/santabeeredit-thumb.jpgAs you’ve probably guessed from the David-Suzuki’s-nightmare-of-wasted-electricity displays everywhere, the holiday season is upon us.

Since it’s a little too early in the month to call it a Christmas/Chanukah party, tonight we’ll be celebrating Festivus – complete with the airing of grievances and the feats of strength. Since criticizing guests about the ways they’ve disappointed you over the past year makes for a lame party at best, our grievances will be directed at public figures, dead people and associates we mutually agree are jerks. As for the test of strength, I expect we’ll have a few sprained wrists and welts tomorrow from the arm wrestling matches and elastic band fights (full-on wrestling is not permitted in our apartment). I never did grab an aluminum pole, but our fan is pretty straight and plain-looking, so it should do.

Happy Festivus, everyone!

PS: Yes, I know the santa beer has nothing to do with Festivus, but it does make my fridge look cool.
