It's coming!
All the reminders are starting to surface, the mini-vans with the menorah on top cruising the neighborhood, the crowded mall parking lots, the girls at jumbo's clown room donning santa caps--The holidays are coming!
This my favorite time of year, not because of the paid week off or the three hours of free drinking sponsored by the company on thursday night or presents or shopping, but largely because this means that there will be at least 2 or 3 of those round tins of flavored popcorn placed around the office, no doubt from cheap-ass vendors or clients who saw the $6.99 tin in the checkout line at the drugstore. Truth be told, I love the stuff (cheese, butter, then caramel in order of preference)� I even know how much they are because I was tempted to buy one for myself but just couldn't muster enough self-loathing. Besides, I don't want to get the orange cheese fingerprints all over me red velvet couch.
