Sure, there may be over 100,000 people dead, but don’t let that stop you from trying to get laid in Thailand.
Well, this weekend Milady and I continued our annual holiday tradition of Trying to Get to the Maritimes for Christmas. The flights, due to a winter storm last week, were cancelled and the remaining ones were full. So we decided to drive on Christmas Day only to return on Monday. That was delayed one day when another storm hit. Walking, let alone driving, was impossible. So we came home yesterday. Still, I got to see my family and friends, even if it was just for a short time.
The only downside, other than the short stay, was that my windshield will need to be replaced after taking a rock on the way down to Saint John. I did some calling and learned from the woman at my insurer that my deductible was half of the actual cost of replacing the window. In addition, filing the claim would raise my car insurance another $100 per year. In the long run, it’s probably cheaper to pay it out of my own pocket.
Still, if that’s the worst thing weather has done to me this weekend, then I’ve lead a pretty charmed life. Seriously, I really do write and think about a lot of pointless bullshit. I just feel weird jumping back into the blogging thing, given what’s going on in Asia. It seems wrong to suddenly start posting “I got a sweater for Christmas! Battlestar Galactica starts next month!”
Don’t worry. I’ll start posting about stupid bullshit again soon.
In the meantime, it’s interesting to note that The Sun gave the front page to the news that Richard Attenborough’s granddaughter Lucy was killed in the disaster. All class, those guys.
To all my friends, family, and readers: have a safe and happy holiday and all the best in New Year.
My Christmas gift to you: a profanity-laced flash animation parody of that god-awful Band Aid II single.
