  1. That you for this. I haven’t laughed so much in ages. The stoic cynicism of it all beats eggnog any day.

    It gave me perspective on the Holiday season that I don’t believe I will ever lose. I was going thru the worst time of my life – divorce – sudden death of several family members – yet I decided that was the son of a bitch everyone thought.
